Important information about La Rogaia
A few things you should know about Villa La Rogaia
Of course, we want our guests to feel at home at the Villa La Rogaia and enjoy a relaxing holiday.
The prerequisite for this is that you are aware of what La Rogaia is and what it is not.
Neither you nor we feel comfortable when your holidays are not like what you expected.
La Rogaia is in the middle of nature: Animals
That means that there is wild life around. We get visited by deers, fallow deers, foxes, wild boars, badgers and goats.
The foxes were born and grew up in La Rogaia, they are semi-domesticated and do not suffer from rabies. In addition, they are dewormed every 2 months, together with our cats.
Wild animals are fascinating and beautiful to look at, but they are very rarely clean and leave their "traces" on our property.
This is normal part of life in the country and no reason to complain.
The same is also true for the singing of nightingales and the call of owls, as well as, for example, the chirping of crickets and cicadas in summer.
If you think now that it is nonsensical to feel disturbed by birds singing, we share your opinion. We have not yet heard something of the kind from our own guests, but we know that some of our colleagues had to listen to bitter complaints already...
We also cannot rule out that during your stay you will see spiders or - very rarely - a scorpion. In all the years that we have guests in our house, no one has ever been stung by a scorpion. And even if this should happen one day: The bite of a Mediterranean scorpion is harmless and corresponds to a wasp bite.
In the vicinity of La Rogaia live also snakes, especially ring snakes, which are very useful (and harmless) animals. Although there are vipers in Umbria and Tuscany, we have never seen one in La Rogaia.
Nevertheless, if you are suffering from a snake or spider phobia or are afraid of insects and other small animals, La Rogaia is not the right place for you.
La Rogaia is in the middle of nature: Stillness
This also means that there is much to discover here. That you can see animals and plants that you can not find anywhere else. And you have the opportunity to enjoy the silence of a remote country place.
However, if you are in a constant hustle and bustle, La Rogaia is probably not the right place for you.
La Rogaia is ideal for children. As I said, there is much to discover, and adventure in nature to experience.
However, if you are convinced that your children need constant animation, or that nature is simply dull, and if you are not ready to embrace something new and unknown, then La Rogaia is probably not the right place for you.
La Rogaia is in the middle of nature: Driveway
Villa La Rogaia is surrounded by nature, 4 km away from the nearest village, Castel Rigone. The last 2.5 km to our house are a gravel road. This might be unusual for some of our guests. However in comparison to driving on a motorway it is the safest part of your trip.
Nevertheless some might find it adventurous or even dangerous to drive on a gravel road.
The fact is that the last "accident" on our access road was at least 14 years ago when one of our guests had touched a negligently parked car on the side of the road.
One can easily drive on our access road with almost all cars, even with lowered cars when driving carefully.
However: If the idea of driving a short distance on a gravel road through the Umbrian hills causes considerable discomfort to you or if the idea of encountering a car on a gravel road lets you panick, then La Rogaia is not the right place for you (like most countryhouses in Umbria and Tuscany). In this case, you should opt for a different destination.
What you should know:
For very long or wide mobile homes or vans and for motorcycles (except enduro or cross motorcycles) our access road is not suitable.
La Rogaia is in the middle of nature: Where we are
Villa La Rogaia is not situated by the sea! Umbria is the only region of Italy which has no access to the sea (apart from the regions in the Alps of course).
The Villa La Rogaia is not located directly at the shore of Lake Trasimeno, but in the hills above the lake. We belong to the municipality of Passignano sul Trasimeno. Passignano has several districts, of which only the main town, Passignano sul Trasimeno, is located directly at the lake. Our village is Castel Rigone, originally an independent village, which was incorporated at the beginning of the last century.

Zusammen mit meinem Mann habe ich vor 16 Jahren ein Landhaus restauriert, in der Nähe von Passignano sul Trasimeno im wunderschönen Umbrien, einem (noch-)Geheimtipp unter den Reisezielen in Italien. Wir betreiben eine kleine biologische Landwirtschaft, stellen Olivenöl her und bauen Lavendel, Duftrosen und Obst an. Daneben vermieten wir Ferienwohnungen, veranstalten verschiedenen Kurse (u.a. Kochkurse zur umbrischen und toskanischen Küche und Tanzkurse) und organisieren Weinverkostungen, Teilnahme an der Olivenernte und Trüffelsuche.
