RENTING OUT OF THE PEAK SEASON, in Autumn, Winter or Spring
This is when the cities get less crowded, temperatures are lower but still around 10 to 20 degrees Celsius in the afternoon. Autumn is a very colourful season and the light is beautiful. In October and November there is the hand-picking of olives and grapes, while in Spring the region enjoys warm temperatures and a beautiful flowering of fruit trees and poppies. Not to mention the winter period, with the Christmas and End of the Year celebrations and events, with a layer of snow whitewashing the mountains while guests enjoy the warmth of the fireplace.
The villa is perfect for the low season: the underfloor heating is very pleasant, the fireplace is very cozy, the large windows catch the sun rays from the low standing sun, the view over the lake is gorgeous with the changing light, the very well-equipped game room proposes exciting moments in the late afternoons or nights, the contemporary kitchen invites for joint cooking events and, even in the colder periods, a ride with the electric bike is a great experience, in addition the mountains which offer skiing opportunities are quite close (1 to 2 hours drive) for hiking, skiing, tours with snow rackets.
TRASIMENO LAKE: FOOD TRADITIONS AND "SLOW TOURISM"
Below is a portion of an Article written by Julia Buckley, CNN Travel, published 12th May 2022
Today, Lake Trasimeno has a tourism model that's very different from Italy's main resorts. Instead of quantity, the area goes for quality. Two of the lakeside towns -- Passignano sul Trasimeno, on the north coast, and Castiglione del Lago, on the west -- belong to the Borghi piu' belli d'Italia listings of spectacular small towns. They're joined on that list by three other towns, just off the lake: Corciano, Paciano and Panicale.
The idea is to offer a slower kind of tourism, that attracts a different, more thoughtful kind of tourist -- someone who's more likely to appreciate the food, or attend the Trasimeno Music Festival, held every July.
Angela Hewitt is one of them. A Canadian concert pianist based in London, she's the festival's artistic director, but bought a lakeside piece of land to build her dream retreat in 2002. "I can honestly say that I never tire of my view, and when I arrive there after my endless touring around the world, I can't quite believe my luck," she says.
"The lake sets the stage for breathtaking sunsets that open your heart and soul, especially in the autumn and winter months. Even in high season, the area is still peaceful and not too touristy, with marshes bordering much of the lake."
