I Capricci di Merion (Farmhouse Holidays) Tuoro sul Trasimeno
Umbria's lakeside love nest
Three reasons why you'll love it here
- The cuisine of Umbria served to the sound of harps
- The pool with view of Lake Trasimeno
- A holiday in the romantic retreat built for a 19th century noble lady
The peace and quiet of Lake Trasimeno, and the elegance of a beautifully restored period residence, inspired by the passions of the noble lady who lived here in the late 19th century: Umbria's "Capricci di Merion" is a retreat as romantic as it is rare.
Sleeping under the stars
Over a century ago, in this splendid lakeside villa, Lady Merion whiled away the days toying with her favorite 'capricci': painting, poetry and, above all, music. The hall, public rooms, and bedrooms still conserve the elegant and eclectic style which distinguished the villa's original owner.
In the residence's individually appointed bedrooms, furnished with antiques and four poster beds, guests sleep under ceilings lit to resemble the night sky.
Dinner and dance
Music and cuisine are the major protagonists of an evening spent in Capricci di Merion's intimate restaurant. The wine list contains a flawless selection of Italian wines, with particular emphasis on local, Umbrian wines.
Just as in the days when Lady Merion used to entertain her guests here, today's holidaymakers are treated to the finest traditional Umbrian dishes, accompanied by the delicate notes of live harp music
Set in extensive grounds, Capricci di Merion is the perfect place in which to enjoy the peace and quiet of this beautiful corner of Umbria: strolling through the gardens, relaxing by the salt water swimming pool overlooking Lake Trasimeno, or indulging in a little professional pampering in the wellness corner.
