Historical notes on Passignano.
Passignano is a small village that rises from the shores of Lake Trasimeno and is reflected in its gentle waters. The town, which flourished in the 16th century, is based around the charming medieval centre – although its roots go back far further – and is dominated by the Rocca castle.
The ancient heart of Passignano is ringed by medieval walls with three gateways, Castello, Torri and Torrioni, that bear witness to the transformation of what had been a small farming village in Roman times into a castle and fortress in the Middle Ages. The Rocca also houses a boat museum, with boats used on Italian inland waterways. Passignano’s history spans two thousand years before it became part of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany in 1643; it then shared the fate of that region until it was incorporated into the Kingdom of Italy in 1860.
Ferries leave from the pier at Passignano to the islands of Lake Trasimeno, Polvese and Maggiore.
Castel Rigone, Col Piccione, Le Crete, Pischiello, San Donato and San Vito are all villages in the area.
The property is located 1 km from Passignano, on a hill with breath-taking views of Lake Trasimeno.
The sunset over the lake is unforgettable, and the property is one of few in Umbria offering a lake view.
Set deep in its natural surroundings, the house will be built with traditional local features, while at the same time being equipped with all modern conveniences.
The building will have about five hectares of land, including olive groves, planted areas and woodland and will be built so that it is in perfect harmony with its surrounding.
