The Poggiolo estate covers 50 hectares of woodland, olive grove, vineyard and arable land at about 250 m. of altitude in the ancient county of Porta Eburnea 12 kilometers from Perugia. Poggiolo means small hillock, a natural balcony and at the same time artificially created with a series of terracing on the small plain crossed by the Caina torrent. The heart of the company is represented by the English park within which the villa and farmhouses are located; around the buildings used for agricultural uses, arable land, vineyards and, on a hill, the forest and the olive grove. Il Poggiolo is an oasis of peace and tranquility with the charm of an old country estate.

Activities and surrounding
Il Poggiolo is located in the middle of a very pleasant and unspoiled area, with the possibility of walking, horse riding, biking of about half a day. Small villages in sight of the Trasimeno or dominating the hills south of the Poggiolo constitute an alternative to the traditional and sometimes crowded destinations of Umbria. Nestor's small ring: just 3 km from the Poggiolo begins a pleasant and easy itinerary to follow on foot or by bike along the river Nestore up to the Castle of S. Apollinare. Walking time about 3 hours. Cycling 1 and a half hours. Useful links: Trasimeno 2014, Promotion Corciano, CAI section Perugia (PDF file) The villages around Lake Trasimeno: 20 minutes from Poggiolo in the west direction Castiglione Del Lago can be the beginning of a short historical and artistic itinerary; from Castiglione you move on the surrounding hills visiting the small village of Paciano, ending in Panicale that besides offering a beautiful view of the lake welcomes us in the delightful restaurant of Lillo Tatini. For ridges and castles: south of the Poggiolo the road to Marsciano allows you to enjoy beautiful views of the hills dotted with villages and castles. Taking a detour from the road that leads from Poggiolo to Marsciano, you can visit the castle of S. Apollinare, the village of Mercatello, the Castle of Monte Vibiano, of Monte Lagello and Migliano up to the Castle of S. Vito in Monte overlooking the area at 620 m height. The esoteric city: following a rather tortuous but suggestive itinerary towards Pietrafitta and Castiglion Fosco shortly after Montegiove, an old Franciscan convent framed the esoteric dream of a Milanese architect Tommaso Buzzi. Worth a visit!
