Fattoria Il Poggio

Top choice hostel in Lago Trasimeno

Nestled in gardens on the tranquil islet of Isola Polvese, this ecominded farmstead has bright, spick-and-span rooms and gorgeous lake views. If you don't mind catching a ferry back each evening by 7pm, you'll be rewarded handsomely with a family-style meal prepared with organic produce and homegrown herbs and superb morning lake views. Prices include breakfast.

The people who run the place are lovely. If you want to go canoeing or fishing or sign up for a reiki or yoga course, just say the word.
