Map

Preggio, 2.5km/1.5 miles, is a traditional little hill village with an excellent restaurant, caffès and a shop; several other restaurant options are available with a 15-minute drive. Lake Trasimeno offers boating and water sports at Passignano sul Trasimeno, 30 minutes, which is also the ferry terminal for the interesting trip to the lake’s islands. Weekly markets and supermarkets at Umbertide, 20 minutes, or on the lake at Castiglione del Lago, 40 minutes. Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio and Cortona (Tuscany) can all be reached in less than an hour. An excellent railway service connects the nearby Terentola-Cortona station to Siena, Rome and Florence within 1.5 hours. This is excellent walking country: an old Etruscan track passes next to the villa and continues through the forest. Preggio, too, can be reached on foot and there are lovely trails to medieval Castel Rigone, 9km/6 miles, and along the Tiber River near Umbertide.

Reviews

Collected by us from our feedback forms we send to all our clients

We are all really sad to be leaving this beautiful place. It has been a lovely way to celebrate an 80th birthday. We have visited Florence, Rome, Assisi, Cortona and of course the lake. It has been hard to drag the children away from the pool and we have really enjoyed our evenings putting the World to rights over several bottles of wine on the terrace. Thank you Laurie and Lucia for making us feel so welcome when we arrived and also for being on hand throughout our stay. Matt, Charlie, Josie, Ollie, Ian Andy, Rebecca and David.

Bellona di Sotto is the most attractive villa nestled amongst the beautiful hills of Umbria and with outstanding, even breathtaking, views. It is rustic but very well equipped for a holiday and has many old features which add to its charm. The pool is great and the main attraction in the hot weather. There is a wonderful undercover outdoor eating area overlooking the fantastic views and there is also an excellent barbecue. It is the perfect place to relax yet within easy distance of villages and only an hour or two from some of the well known towns like Florence and Sienna. However, it is so lovely at the villa it is difficult to tear oneself away to do anything else! The owners are most welcoming and very helpful with advice on where to visit, restaurants etc. I would highly recommend this villa.

We have had a wonderful stay at Bellona di sotto and will take away some great memories of our time at your beautiful villa. We were 3 generations – 11 of us and we particularly loved the pool. The views here are outstanding and we will miss those especially. Thank you for being so kind and helpful. I hope we may see you again. – Marilyn

Tuscany Now & More delivered a fantastic vacation for our entire family. The home we rented was as wonderful, if not more, than how it was advertised and we always felt we had the best support to make our trip easy and relaxing. I will recommend the team to everyone. Best,

A beautiful and tranquil location; the owner/caretaker couldn't have been more helpful, he also helped us book restaurants and gave us "local knowledge" of where to go and good places to eat. I am very impressed by the service - especially the accuracy of the web site - plenty of photos. I have already recommended this site to others!
