Villa La Poetessa

Villa of historical importance in one of the most panoramic and beautiful places on Lake Trasimeno. The villa is a unique and exclusive place to best experience the wonders of the lake area. Located in the small village of Monte del Lago and close to all amenities but with privacy guaranteed by the high surrounding walls. The villa has many historical references with its frescoes and Italian gardens and a medieval tower. From the terraces you can enjoy unique views of the lake: a place of rare and pure beauty.

This historic villa is located in the most beautiful point of Lake Trasimeno from which you can enjoy a breathtaking view. The villa was built around the middle of the 19th century and presents various testimonies of the time. It was the home of Guido Pompilj and his wife, the poetess Vittoria Aganoor Pompilj, one of the most important figures of Italian poetry between the 19th and 20th centuries. The villa is on three floors, two of which are habitable and one with cellars. There is also a panoramic tower with a terrace that offers a 360° panorama of the lake and the green hills around. The property is located in the small town of Monte del Lago located on a promontory on the lake shore. The villa is surrounded on three sides by a high wall which allows for a lot of privacy and on one side there is an olive grove where it would be possible to build a swimming pool with lake view. The villa is on three floors including a basement where there are various cellars and a kitchen/rustic to host family reunions or when there are many friends, as well as an ancient bread oven. The first floor connected to the outside both by an external staircase from the front garden and by an internal staircase, houses an apartment with three large frescoed rooms, kitchen, pantry, 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and various hallways. The second floor can be reached via an internal staircase where the second apartment is located, consisting of three rooms, two of which are connected to a large terrace called “La Terrazza della Poetessa” with an amazing view of the lake and a kitchen, three bedrooms, study, three bathrooms as well as a large entrance and various closets and hallways. Going up the stairs to a further floor you find yourself in a room with large windows on all sides and connected to a small terrace from which you can enjoy a unique 360° view of the lake and the green hills that surround it. A place to relax and seek inspiration. Both in front of the villa and in the back there are two Italian gardens with tall trees and elliptical flowerbeds. Also present in the garden is an ancient medieval tower, part of the ancient walls surrounding the property. The villa is, with its position and history, a unique and rare place. It could be used both as a private residence but also for a hospitality business. The villa requires a total renovation regarding systems, bathrooms, kitchens even if the structural condition is good.
