Description from owner
Set within 2.5 acres of private land, this magnificent 8 BR - 7 ½ BA Villa is nestled on top of a hill overlooking the wonderful Trasimeno Lake and is strategically located within a short distance from the lively town of Cortona as well as several other fabulous towns in Tuscany.
Surrounded by an exceptionally beautiful and well-designed garden, the villa is perfect to enjoy relaxing time with family & friends and caters to those who are ready to mix relaxation into the exploration of the most beautiful places in Tuscany & central Italy!
About the property.
After a complete renovation phase that lasted several years, where all of the original charm and architectural features were strictly maintained, the villa’s interiors have recently been meticulously upgraded to the highest standards.
The thorough attention to details, from the careful selection of the materials used, to the exquisitely appointed furniture and the selection of art hanging on the walls, has contributed into creating a truly unique space that perfectly blends with the villa’s original structure.
The villa is surrounded by 2.5 acres of the most beautiful Tuscan landscaping and features breathtaking unobstructed views on the Trasimeno Lake & its isles. The garden boasts several shaded areas and covered verandas (perfect for relaxing during the hot summer days or al fresco dining), a large private pool and a wood burning pizza oven, ideal for outdoors summer banquets.
The beautiful nature and lake can be enjoyed from almost every corner of the villa, from the living room’s front porch the water seems so close that it feels like it could almost be touched!...
Spreading over a surface of more than 5,400 square feet (500 sq.mt.), the villa offers its guests a unique blend of indoor and outdoor living, providing the perfect setting for a family reunion, a group of friends travelling together, or an anniversary celebration!
The cozy yet sophisticated and elegant atmosphere of the interiors, the breathtaking beauty of the villa’s garden & pool together with the fabulous views, make this property a truly unique gem perfect to hide away & relax, just steps away from the very best Cortona, the Trasimeno lake and its Tuscan surroundings have to offer…
The villa is ideally located only about 10 miles away from the wonderful town of Cortona, one of the most fascinating villages in Tuscany, and about 2.5 miles away from Tuoro sul Trasimeno, an ancient Etruscan city on Lake Trasimeno (central Italy’s largest lake).
Some of the country’s most famous and beautiful destinations such as Florence (75 miles), Siena (42 miles) and Rome (124 miles) can all be easily reached either by car or by train. The nearest main train station (of Terontola-Cortona) is conveniently located only 5 miles away from the property and feature several trains that frequently connect to Florence (just over an hour trip), Siena (about 1 hour & half trip) and Rome (about 2 hours trip).
The towns of Arezzo and Perugia are both within a 30 miles reach while the Val d’Orcia and the most fabulous wines paths of the region are both within a 22 miles distance.
Great local shops (including organic stores selling amazing locally produced groceries) and a supermarket can all be found at Touro sul Trasimeno, while the nearest restaurant is located within waking distance.
The lake offers a full range of activities including fully equipped beaches (reachable in just a few minutes), tennis courts, surfing, sailing, and water-skiing opportunities.
From its port it is possible to easily reach the Maggiore Island (one the three islands of Lake Trasimeno), which is a truly magnificent place still inhabited today.
The villa spreads over 3 floors and features a total of 8 bedrooms and 7 and ½ bathrooms, so it can comfortably welcome up to 15 guests.

“Beautiful Villa but no amenities included”
The Villa was beautiful and accomadated our 14 adults and 3 children wonderfully. My only negative comment is that for $8,000 for the week they could have supplied water,soap,shampoo, paper towels and… More
“Beautiful villa and setting!”
The location of "La Caprara" is great for taking day trips to Assisi, Siena, Cortona and many small towns around Lake Trasimeno. The train is convenient to take to Florence and Rome as well.… More
“Great family getaway with friends”
We were 4 families with children ranging from 2 to 5 years old. We had a fantastic week in Villa Caprara all together. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. The views were breathtaking and the a… More
“Highlight of our Italian holiday!”
This has been a great property to stay at for our extended family (of 14)! The villa was very spacious and recently renovated, the pool & grounds were absolutely fantastic, not to mention the stunning lake views! It was all just perfect to say the least… I would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Cortona and it surroundings, it is a lovely retreat conveniently located to the most beautiful places in Tuscany.. We will definitely be back!
“Wonderful Tuscan experience, perfect villa!”
This beautiful villa served as a home base for our family travels throughout Tuscany for a week and I must say that it has been perfect! The pool was wonderful for the children as were the villa’s bedrooms and overall amenities. Most appreciated were the views from the outdoor pergola and from the covered veranda… we spent hours and hours just looking at the lake and enjoying the magnificent sunsets! The grounds offered a truly relaxing atmosphere as well as fun activities such as playing in the pool all day and making our own pizza in the pizza oven in the evenings! What is better than eating a pizza prepared by your own kids? We highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the wonderful town of Cortona, the Trasimeno lake as well as the most fabulous places in Tuscany! We will be back!!
“Dream Tuscan vacation!!”
I had to book a group holiday for 3 families (15 people in total), which I knew would have been a real challenge to accommodate! I heard about this villa from a friend who had previously stayed there and only had the best feedback, so I decided to book it as well.. I must say that our holiday has been a wonderful success!!! The adults in our party took full advantage of the chef service and cooking classes arranged by the host as well as the many amazing wine tours offered in this region. Grandparents relaxed around the villa most of the time while the younger kids swam all day in the pool… The best part of the outside area was definitely the pizza oven, where kids could use their creativity to make their own pizzas, which they absolutely loved! The location was mind-blowing and we all enjoyed the magnificent Lake views, particularly at night sipping red wine! The host was available for us the whole time during our stay and helped us greatly with several recommendations on the best places to eat and the best day trips to do. From the villa it was really easy to reach the nearby beaches of the Trasimeno Lake as well as the town of Cortona (just a few minutes away), where we had some of the best Tuscan food ever! All in all, if you are looking for the real Tuscan experience, I cannot recommend this place more! We very much look forward to being back asap!
