In a corner of Umbria on the border with Tuscany: the hills of Lake Trasimeno. Borgo Martis is the ideal place for itineraries in central Italy: halfway between Assisi and Siena, very close to Perugia and Cortona, but in the absolute tranquillity of the Umbrian countryside, among pastures and woods. The Middle Age and the Renaissance, the villages and trips on the lake, horse riding or horse-drawn carriage rides: everything is close at hand!
In the hinterland of Passignano sul Trasimeno, on the hillock known as “delle rose” (of the roses) because of the abundance of dog roses, stands the church of San Cristoforo, around which Borgo Martis has developed, offering a 360° view of the countryside and absolute tranquillity for resting and strolling, ideal for rural tourism, for exploring on foot or by mountain bike, and for enjoying the many opportunities offered by the area. San Cristoforo was the parish seat of the Pian di Marte valley as early as the 16th century, and in the early 18th century the new church, now deconsecrated, the rectory and gradually the other buildings that make up the complex were built on the Poggio: the farmhouse, the tobacco drying room and the agricultural outbuildings. The property is very articulated and is composed of the deconsecrated and beautifully restored small church that can be used as a multipurpose room. From here we access a large flat on the ground floor composed of a large living room, dining room, kitchen, two bathrooms and rooms that can be used as bedrooms, study, or other. On the first floor, there is a characteristic loggia accessed by an internal staircase and from which one enters the flat on the first floor with a kitchen, a living room, a large common room, a storage room, four bedrooms and six bathrooms. On the second floor, there are a further 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 2 common rooms. Part of the property are external storage rooms and a dependence with a living room-kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. The favorable position and the enchanting view make it possible to build a beautiful swimming pool.
After its renovation, the Borgo has been used for the last 10 years as an accommodation facility with a restaurant, and in recent times it has been rented out as a self-managed facility, but it lends itself to a variety of uses.
Borgo Martis is located on the border between the municipalities of Passignano sul Trasimeno and Lisciano Niccone in a quiet and panoramic position as well as being easily accessible.
