A beautiful detached house only a 20 minutes drive from Perugia and Lake Trasimeno, surrounded by a beautiful garden right in the centre of the village!
The house is particularly beautiful for the light that penetrates from the many windows, creating the perfect environment to paint or write surrounded by the tranquility of nature, with absolute privacy ideal for composing music for example without disturbing the neighbours! A house for artists in other words.... but not only.
It is on two levels made up of a kitchen, dining room, living room with fireplace, four bedrooms, study and two bathrooms. There are two balconies and a nice porch.
The house is located right in the village where the famous painter, Pietro Vannucci, known as "Il Perugino" is buried, He is considered one of the greatest artists of humanism and the representative of Umbrian painting of the fifteenth century, master of the famous Raffaello Sanzio of which we celebrate the fifth centenary of his death only next year!
It might seem unusual to find the tomb of such a famous painter in a village like Fontignano, but the painter chose this place in 1511 as a place to live in and set up his workshop. Fontignano is indeed a town that can satisfy many. It is close to the always active medieval city of Perugia, just a few km from Lake Trasimeno and a stone's throw (less than 10 km) from the Silvestrini Hospital. The village itself has all the primary services but with that lovely family feelings of olden times.
Perhaps it was this that attracted the "divine painter": the strategic position and the welcoming atmosphere of a small country town.
