Passignano sul Trasimeno - Castel Rigone
Villa La Rogaia - a romantic countryhouse with six holiday apartments above Lake Trasimeno.
Master craftsmen known for their artistic flair within an ancient tradition have restored all buildings at the Villa La Rogaia. Outstanding art works in marble and other stoneworks by the sculptor Wolfgang Sandt give each holiday appartment its own character. A large flower garden and sculpture park surround the house. Each appartment has a private terrace and tranquil garden to enjoy. A pool offers refreshment on hot summer days.
The surrounding landscape is a tapestry of olive groves, sheep pastures, woods, sunflower fields, punctuated with cypress and ancient stone oaks. Here, far away from your hectic everyday life you can relax amidst a natural setting. In the early spring, almond and peach blossoms paint the valley. The summer brings honey scented ginestra (broom). Warm august nights are filled with cicada concerts. The hills are laced with golden hues in the mild autumn, warmed by the scent of chestnut fires throughout the valleys. La Rogaia is the perfect spot for those who seek absolute silence: the next public road is 2.5 km away.
There are miles of trails out our doorstep for hiking, mountain biking or horseback riding. The panoramic drive to Lago Trasimeno is as pleasant as the lake itself. Dotted with islands and castles, this lake is a beautiful place to go swimming, sailing and windsurfing. Many historically relevant towns are within easy driving distance from the villa such as Assisi, Perugia, Siena and Arezzo.
La Rogaia offers a wide range of creative classes: cookery and wine tasting, dancing, painting, sculpting, writing, guided walking and herbal tours, olive picking. Classes take place at Villa La Rogaia, an outstanding wheelchair friendly countryhouse in Umbria with pool.
