RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. Fontanicchio is a magnificent property surrounded by immense vineyards and hills, with a breathtaking view towards Lake Trasimeno. This rural home, entirely clad in stone and embraced by olive trees, is located on the border between Tuscany and Umbria. Framed by this fascinating context, it will welcome you within its walls, flaunting the luxurious materials that drape both the rooms and the outdoor areas. Floors in hand-made terracotta tiles, parquet in the bedrooms and chestnut-wood ceiling beams. The bedrooms, overlooking the garden, are large, bright and comfortable, personalised with objects of design. This fantastic house, completed in 2014, was born from the owner's interest and love for nature, for extra virgin olive oil and, particularly, for the completely natural wines that this area of Tuscany and Umbria offers in abundance. The house faces the beautiful garden with manicured lawn and wonderful private infinity pool just a few metres from the portico: the ideal refuge for travellers looking for a relaxed, secluded atmosphere guaranteed by rural landscapes. Dining under the large portico will be an unforgettable experience, especially at sunset with the view of the lake. We are in Tuoro, a land that was the protagonist of the Battle of Trasimeno in 217 BC, a chapter of the Second Punic War fought by Hannibal and Gaius Flaminius Nepote, testimony of which continues to emerge today with the many archaeological finds that are of international interest. Just a few minutes away by car, in Terontola in Tuscany or in Tuoro sul Trasimeno in Umbria, are supermarkets, restaurants and various shops. Thanks to its favourable geographical location, just a few kilometres from the highway, you can alternate peaceful relaxation with interesting excursions to the numerous rural borghi in the immediate vicinity. Finally, the excellent road network allows easy travel to the most important art centres of Umbria and Tuscany, such as Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto, Siena and Cortona.
