    Local information

    • Located on the Tuscan border in the countryside close to Lake Trasimeno, Cortona and the Niccone valley.

    Additional information

    • The ‘Niccone Valley' or the ‘Valle del Niccone' is where Tuscany meets Umbria. The northern valley is mainly in Tuscany, topped by five ancient castles or fortified villages; all standing opposite their Umbrian counterparts that lie on the hills of the southern valley and all built over a 1,000 year period of Papal and Renaissance history. Today, the 11 miles of the Niccone valley, which includes the Val di Pierle, is dotted with restored private farmhouses, luxury villas and apartments, all popular with discerning visitors. The villages of Lisciano Niccone – Umbria – and Mercatale di Cortona – Tuscany sit at the western most extreme of this wide valley. A drive east along the valley road gives access to Preggio, once the medieval seat of power for the region and eventually to the village of Niccone, standing in the mouth of the Niccone Valley. A short few miles away to the west is the site of the Battle of Trasimeno – where Hannibal routed the Roman legions in 217BC. The area bore witness to one of bloodiest battles in history and even today, the stain of this incredible event can be felt amongst the hills and valleys.
