Built at the same time as Palazzo della Corgna, the gateway to the Castle and residence of Ascanio della Cornia, Casa Leone Italy is your home away from home at the heart of Castiglione del Lago old town. The flat bursts with charm and awaits you!
This lovely flat is located at the heart of Castiglione del Lago old town, a stone’s throw from the castle and within walking distance of the beach. Dating back to the 16th century, it retains numerous original features, such as wood beans and terracotta tiles on the ceilings, frescoed walls and stone tiled floors. It has windows on three sides with views of the pedestrian street and the lake. Its 2 double bedrooms are unusually large and the flat itself is very romantic. It has a bathroom (bath/shower, wc, bidet, sink, window), a fully equipped kitchen (with table for four, oven, gas hob, microwave, pots, pans, etc) and a living area (sofa, chairs, tv, books).
Casa Leone Italy is located on the main street of the old town of Castiglione del Lago, on Lake Trasimeno, in the centre of Italy. It is on the border between Umbria and Tuscany, giving easy access to Cortona, Montepulciano, Perugia and Assisi amongst others. The flat looks out towards the pedestrian street on one side and the lake on the other. It is adjacent to the 12th century castle of Castiglione del Lago (la Rocca del Leone) and within walking distance of Lake Trasimeno.
Casa Leone Italy is an ideal base for exploring the centre of Italy and its many stunningly beautiful towns. It has the advantage of being in the centre of the old town where restaurants, bars and shops are located. So after a day sightseeing, just park the car and enjoy the culinary pleasures of Italy without having to worry about driving. It is also ideal to just relax by the lake, walk down to the beach or catch a ferry to the islands. Castiglione del Lago is also in the middle of wine country, with plenty of medieval and Etruscan cantinas to visit, Montepulciano for instance is only a 20 minute drive away and other local vineyards are even closer. Shopping, trekking and sports are also on the cards, with outlets with Italian designs being a stone’s throw away and options for golfing, cycling, boating, swimming also being close to hand.
You have access to the entire apartment.
The access stairs are private.

Always happy to help!
Casa Leone Italy is infant-kid-pet-party friendly (and we tolerate smoking as long as you are hanging out of the window - we have window seats in the kitchen and the living room windows offer good views of the main street to keep your smoking time entertaining!)
I am half English half Italian and have been living in Italy since 2009, first in Cortona and then in Castiglione del Lago. Having travelled extensively, I can happily say that this part of Italy is one of the most beautiful in the world :) It has so much to offer and I am thrilled to be living here and to be able to share it with guests from all over the world who come to Casa Leone.
