Five kilometres from Castiglione del Lago and the shores of Lake Trasimeno, in a secluded peaceful location with an open view that stretches far into the distance over the surrounding villages, lies Dimora Rovena, a magnificent, completely renovated farm property which, thanks to its particular structure composed of a main house and three adjacent annexes, is perfect for hosting large groups of people. Ideal for family reunions, for couples and groups of friends, for families with children who want to spend a holiday together but, at the same time, preserve their independance and privacy thanks to the many living areas, to the large, bright bedrooms with ultra modern bathrooms, to the well-equipped kitchens and to the vast garden and the variety of outdoor living areas which surround the buildings. A luxurious interior, the result of a successful combination of elements of traditional architecture with contemporary finishing touches and modern furnishing, precious Murano chandeliers, hydromassage showers and refined details that render every room cosy and elegant at the same time. An excellent location in which to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere offered by the Umbrian countryside and to move between history, art and nature, exploring the magnificent surroundings and numerous art cities of Umbria and neighbouring Tuscany.

Also in the vicinity of the annexes are terraces and play areas with ping pong table and swing where you can relax and enjoy the scenic, silent garden.Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.
