Borgo del Papa Country House is 12 Km from Castiglione del Lago. It is surrounded by the enchanting Umbrian countryside and runs alongside the nearby Tuscan landscape. Here exquisite colors manifest and change with the seasons: the green of spring gives way to a golden summer with red poppies and yellow sunflowers. Gently rolling hills sparsed with solitary cypress trees and century old groves of olive trees, dissolve on the banks of Lake Trasimeno and Lake Chiusi. They are surrounded by national parks and land reserves, home to all the species of native birds providing a breathtaking sight. Come and discover the magical atmosphere of Umbria. Rolling hills and fields of wheat nestled together in a puzzle of colors and light that will captivate you, take you back in time and restore you with it's freshness, simplicity and wealth of history.
