Only 25kms from Passignano, Umbria, this splendid castle with watch tower is located in a dominant position on a hill and with the resultant uninterrupted panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and distant hills.

This stunning historical property part of which is a ruin has magnificent surrounding walls and Passignano is one of the most beautiful villages by Lake Trasimeno. Also within easy reach of important tourist towns in Umbria and Tuscany, such as Perugia, Cortona, Assisi, Gubbio and Arezzo. The nearest airport is in Perugia, only 40 km away.

In 217 B.C. a battle between the Romans and the Carthaginians took place in the vicinity of Passignano sul Trasimeno; one of the most important battles of the Second Punic War. This area has always been strictly connected to Perugia and was of strategic importance, since it is located close to Lake Trasimeno, the Upper Tiber Valley and the Val di Chiana.
Passignano in the 11th century belonged partially to some monks and partially to a noble family, then it was plundered by the Florentine army and later it was annexed to the States of the Church.

The tower and the castle ruin present a total surface area of 534.25 square metres. The sandstone quadrangular tower has pointed windows and is laid out on six levels. In the tower there are pigeonholes, which were used to catch birds, and on the top of it there are brick brackets.

The castle is laid out on two levels with sandstone and calcareous walls. According to the restoration project, which has already been approved, the property will be composed as follows.

Basement/ground floor: hall, bathroom, internal pool, bedroom with en suite bathroom. Kitchen, living room and bedroom with en suite bathroom. Storeroom and utility room.

At present the castle is finished to a builder’s finish, the tower and part of the castle have been finished, while the frontal part has been rebuilt. The origins of the property are uncertain, probably the largest part of the building dates back to the 11th-12th centuries, while we know for sure that in 1313 the walls were restored.

The property is surrounded by 6,500 square metres of land with olive grove.
