Living on an Island in Umbria

If you decide on spending your holiday in a vacation home in Umbria, then you will have the chance to discover a country with lovely scenery and countless art treasures! This region in central Italy has much to offer and is an appreciated holiday destination. Besides the unique capital town Perugia, located on a dominant hill, and the stunning city of Assisi (home town of St. Francis of Assisi), as well as other lovely towns with medieval and Etruscan origins (Orvieto, Gubbio, Todi, Spoleto, Spello), where Novasol provides inviting holiday homes,  Umbria also offers beautiful green oases that have awarded the region the title of “Italy’s green heart”. Among the eight nature reserves that Umbria offers its visitors, is also the Lake Trasimeno-Park. Its pure water, equipped beaches and romantic islands (Polvese, Maggiore and Minore) are not only popular among Italian tourists, but also attract an ever growing number of discovery enthusiasts from all over Europe. So take your time and explore the lovely scenery in and around Lake Trasimeno! Especially recommended is a visit to the islands Maggiore and Polvese. The latter was declared a Science Park in 1995, while the third island, Isola Minore, is privately owned and therefore can not be visited. The charming Isola Maggiore is part of the municipality of Tuoro, from where ferries leave. The island is also reachable by ferry from the popular tourist resorts of Castiglione del Lago and Passignano. From Tuoro, where you will find beach resorts, restaurants and bars, it takes about 15 minutes to get to Isola Maggiore. The island welcomes you with its colorful souvenir shops, restaurants with local seafood dishes, bars with seating on a dock extending to the water, so that you are surrounded by green sea water while enjoying your cappuccino in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. On the island,  on which only 14 inhabitants live today, there is only one residential street, the Via Guglielmi, where are also the accommodations offered by Novasol are .
