Holiday property near Lake Trasimeno Italy – From its hilltop position above Lake Trasimeno, this luxurious country farmhouse commands striking views over the blissful Umbrian and Tuscan countryside, especially at sunset when dramatic red and gold skies are reflected in the waters of the lake, with the added benefits of being within walking distance of the local trattoria.

Rivabella is a tasteful renovation offering the original charm of natural stone and thick chestnut beams, combined with stylish interiors and all modern comforts, including air conditioning, hammam, Jacuzzi and chromo-therapy showers using the latest light technology to create a most relaxing experience. This is an ideal setting for holidays surrounded by unspoilt countryside and genuine Italian culture. Your dinners al fresco, evening cocktails and lazy morning breakfasts can be enjoyed under the gazebo, with stunning views of the lake setting the perfect scene.

The surrounding area is one of the most beautiful in central Italy and yet off the beaten track of mass tourism. As well as a fully equipped beach at Lake Trasimeno, just a couple of miles from Rivabella, there are many towns and villages with historic interest, artistic value and gastronomic delight. Within the Umbrian border you will find Perugia, whose summer Jazz Festival is renowned all around the world, Spoleto, Assisi and Todi, rich in Medieval charm. Within the Tuscan border are Cortona, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Siena and Florence, all within easy reach of this Italian vacation villa.

Insider Tips

A really beautiful villa in a spectacular and picturesque setting with wonderful views over the valley to Lago Trasimeno (beautiful lake with beaches). Rivabella will exceed your expectations. The property is perfectly situated for visiting so many places of interest both in Umbria and Tuscany. You can have the happy routine of getting up very early, touring and then collapsing into the pool by mid- afternoon. That way you can get to see lots of the small hilltop villages such as Cortona, Perugia, Isola Maggiore, Montepulciano, Chiusi and the beautiful Assisi (both Tuscany and Lazio within easy reach). You will be able to shop in the typical local markets for fresh produce and enjoy preparing meals to eat with family and friends under the pergola. The local cuisine is excellent and you must try the Puntabella wine bar/ trattoria, 400m down the road.
