Locanda Poggioleone – Umbria


This is another of the wonderful gems I have discovered. It is a family-owned 12 bedroom boutique hotel with a pool and a large garden. The family also own a nearby farm from which they source their 0 km food and a nearby vineyard, which produces amazing Umbrian wine. (Zero km food (0 km food) is a concept which first appeared in Italy a few years ago. It denotes the food produced, sold and eaten locally – the food which has travelled zero kilometres.)

All rooms are rustic with exposed beams and all the furniture has been chosen with great care.

The restaurant here is renowned locally for the high quality of food served and it is used by local business people.
The town of Pozzuolo is a short walk which, it has to be said is unfortunately less than inspiring. However, the location of this hotel makes it ideal for touring. Lago Trasimeno is just 5 miles away as is the historical town of Castigliane del Lago. You can visit a nearby olive mill and wine cellars.

From here it is easy to visit Perugia, Assisi, Cortona, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Siena, Orvieto and Arezzo, just to name a few select places.

The hotel has a lounge and the owners like to make their customers feel like part of the family. They hold regular wine tastings and will frequently provide local snacks.

The hotel offers Economy Rooms, Standard Rooms, Superior Rooms and it has a Triple room.

As I said, this is a gem of a hotel, an utterly ideal place to visit where you can relax and spend some time exploring.
