RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. Villa Margaret dates from 1700’s, situated nearby the little hamlet of Corciano, only few kilometers from Perugia. The oldest part of the house is a spectacular tower dating back to 1600’s which was originally used as control point in the case of fires in the surrounding grounds. The entire property was completely restored in the 60’s and recently renovated only a few years ago, providing a welcoming and enchanting atmosphere. The architecture of the structure, the valuable furnishing, the panoramic tower, the original winter garden, the fitness centre and the wide park area ensures that Villa Margaret is an earthly paradise for those who are looking for tranquility and peacefulness. Nature lovers can enjoy pleasant excursions to the nearby Lake Trasimeno, the art lovers can easily reach the famous Umbrian art centers like Perugia, Assisi, Todi, Spoleto.

An Excellent Week

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was so relaxing and fun! What a beautiful property! The beds were so comfortable and we enjoyed cooking meals in the wonderful kitchen. Outside, the grounds and good clean swimming pool make one feel that relaxation is perfect here. The house is very cosy and very well located. We experienced excellent week and may definitely recommend it.
