No culture is comparable to that of a garden (Jefferson)

Villa La Torre’s *Seguito* (apartment) and *Primo* (main house)


Set in two acres of splendid gardens with its own swimming-pool, *Seguito* is a self-contained one or two double-bedroomed apartment nearby Italy’s spectacular Lake Trasimeno and the scenic pre-Apennine hills beyond.

Delightfully renovated, this four-roomed apartment has been fitted with a new shower room and a pleasant kitchen/sitting/dining room, complete with modern new appliances and all the comforts of home. Each bedroom has french-doors opening directly onto the gardens, where full use may be made of *Seguito’s* glorious jasmine-covered dining-patio, al-fresco dining areas, barbecue, sun-loungers and private swimming-pool.

This fully equipped select home serves thus as both a relaxing holiday hideaway and convenient launch-pad for stepping back into Medieval Italy – in the form of the many ancient hilltop villages which encircle the beautiful lake nearby. Further afield, Italy’s efficient road and rail networks offer rapid, easy access to such famous historical Umbrian towns as Florence, Siena, Perugia, Cortona, Orvieto, Arezzo, and Assisi - the 12th century home of Saint Francis.


Adjoining but separate from *Seguito*, *Primo* is a traditionally converted 300-year-old tobacco-drying tower. Self-contained, its two floors feature a spacious dining room and living room, bathroom, kitchen and one or two double bedrooms. The interior is beautifully enhanced by a wealth of atmospheric chestnut beams and traditional terracotta tiles, all finished to the highest standards.

A man who has not been to Italy is always conscious of an inferiority (Samuel Johnson)
