The Country Guesthouse Colle sul Lago is halfway between Rome and Florence right on the border between Umbria and Tuscany.
Our hill oversees the Lake of Montepulciano, a natural reserve only crossed by rowing boats inhabited by protected plants, fishes and birds. We are on a country lane that serves two small villages only. The main building is a typical old farmhouse built in the XIX century. It has been restored and refurbished with care a few ears ago.
Accommodations and Services in Agriturismo Colle sul Lago
The casale includes five apartments, named after four constellations, which can be connected in pairs on request. They have all been furnished with care in traditional Umbrian-Tuscan style. Every apartment features a comfortable living/dining room with kitchenette and either one or two double (or on request twin bedroom) each with its own shower room.
The kitchens are fully equipped with crockery, cutlery, pots and pans, all of them except one have an oven. All the apartments have reserved outdoors areas, central heating, safe and a television set with satellite. The upstair flats have a fireplace each and the ones on the ground floor are suitable for disable access.
The “Solitudine” (solitude) is a small red brick house located between the main building and the near wood. From some windows there is a view through the forest to the Tuscan hills and lake that at sunset turns to a warm red colour. It is perfectly suitable for those seeking contact with the energy and rhythms of nature and for those trying to forget the stress, noise and struggles of everyday life at least for a while.
The “Solitudine” has two reserved outdoor areas: one outside the living/dining room and the other, hidden from the sight, is equipped with a barbecue. They have table and chairs as well as a sun umbrella. It includes a large living/dining room with kitchenette, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It is designed on three levels, however from the lowest to the highest one there are nine steps only.
Also the “Solitudine” has been furnished and decorated with the same care and traditional rustic style, highlighted by the original warm terracotta floor tiles. It has a satellite TV and a safe. The kitchen is large and fully equipped. A powerful pellet stove ensures the house heating during the winter months.

Where we areColle sul Lago is located on the border between the Umbria and Toscana and has therefore a blessed position for sightseeing. In fact it is at a short distance from Cortona, Montepulciano, Pienza, Città della Pieve, Panicale and Chiusi. You can reach in less than one hour: Siena, Perugia, Assisi, Arezzo, Orvieto and Todi. Some spa towns are very near: Chianciano, S. Albino, S. Casciano Bagni, Bagno Vignone, Rapolano Terme.
Castiglione del Lago (9 km), “one of the most beautiful little towns in Italy”, has a characteristic medieval centre, the Duke’s palace and the Castle, from which a magnificent view on the Trasimeno Lake can be admired.
Not to be missed are also the ferry excursions (always enjoyed by the children) to the Trasimeno islands: The “Maggiore” with the fishermen village and the little Lace Museum, the “Polvese” with its unspoiled natural environment. Alternatively the excursion can be made with a private motorboat company offering a typical fish meal and amusement.
