Walking and running at Lake Trasimeno
The hiking trails begin directly behind the villa, winding like game trails through airy oak forests and ancient olive groves. In the quiet woods above the villa, there is the scent of wild aromatic herbs such as rosemary, thyme and mint. Protected, deer, badgers, porcupines and other forest animals live here. The feeling of deceleration quickly sets in. GPS-guided or guided walks of 3 - 15 kilometres directly from the hotel are available at an additional cost of 10 - 40 €.
Lake Trasimeno, with its forest and olive grove covered hills is one of Umbria`s most iconic environments. The entire area is crisscrossed with innumerable trails.
