There are 25 official routes that offer various levels of difficulty and length. We can offer workshop facilities for repairs and if a little more serious there are numerous local bike shops near by Casa Nestore is a traditional stone farmhouse set high in the green valleys of Umbria, close to Umbria’s capital Perugia and Assisi. The smaller towns of Tavernelle, Marsciano  and Lake Trasimeno are just a short drive through the “Green Heart of Italy”. Our vision at Casa Nestore was to restore and an old farmhouse with apartments keeping the traditional Umbrian style but adding a slight modern touch to bathrooms and kitchens giving a classic feel to the property but with functionality of modern living. We have achieved this by combining traditional local builders and craftsmen and with the help of top London architect, Ian Wylie, who also owns a traditional villa in Italy and has many years experience in this field. Casa Nestore is based around the original shape and style of the existing farmhouse and boasts outstanding views of the surrounding woods and farmland. Our aim is to provide a quality service now and in the future to all our visitors and to ensure that they enjoy an happy and peaceful stay.More

About the neighbourhood
A splash of inky blue on the hilly landscape, Lago Trasimeno is where Umbria spills over into Tuscany. Italy's fourth-largest lake is a prime spot if you want to tiptoe off the well-trodden trail for a spell and slip into the languid rhythm of lake life. Around this 128 sq km lake, silver-green olive groves, vines, woods of oak and cypress and sunflower fields frame castle-topped medieval towns, such as Castiglione del Lago and Passignano, which are draped along its shores like a daisy chain. A gentle and unhurried ambience hangs over the lake's trio of islands – Maggiore, Minore and Polvese – all wonderfully relaxing escapes. Hannibal destroyed the Roman army here in 217 BC, and the lake's numerous fortifications attest to its strategic position and turbulent past.
