Our house rental in Tavernelle di Panicale was peaceful, a lovely property, though a little isolated . It was a two bedroom, well furnished with a lovely view and mountain setting. Each night, you can barbecue or there is a commercial kitchen inside, a great place to sit outside to drink local wine, the sun goes down very late, relaxing and peaceful, and for me to smoke cigars. Late night excursions are more difficult with the location yet once used to the area it is easy to get around Lake Trasimeno and Umbria and Tuscany which was our plan. Internet and all amenities are good. Unlike many restored italian farmhouses, this was well furnished, had some interesting touches of white walls with lighting above, large modern bathrooms and a soaking tub. The grounds are well maintained, there is a hillside area with swimming pool. The owner stays in a corner unit below the house coming and coming quietly but left us to our privacy and was helpful in anything we needed and a very good host while not disturbing us at all. There were no extra charges and laundry towels and anything needed provided.
Getting there is a 8 kilometer road, the latter 5 unpaved winding and narrow dirt road along the mountain ridge. The last 400 meters was steep, after arrival the owner had the road graded further which greatly improved the access. Still, this takes an experienced Italy driver and I had a AWD Volvo wagon, recommended.
If you are looking for a peaceful retreat, the italian house and overall setting is ideal.
