Gardens & Swimming Pool of Luxury Villa San Crispolto
The gardens of San Crispolto are a special attraction of the Villa. We are happy to have found a way to include many varieties of plant life that represent the tone and era of the Villa itself. The estate is enveloped in the distinctive plant life of Umbria in our attempt to preserve the original native flora.
At our front gates you will be greeted with the famous local Cypress trees seen throughout Tuscany and Umbria as well as deep red rose bushes. Between the DOP awarded olive groves you will find fragrant rosemary and lavender bushes curving along the walkways and sloping grounds. The trunks of the centuries old olive trees serve as beautiful, private sanctuaries with stunning views of Lake Trasimeno. As the gardens continue to flourish each visit to Villa San Crispolto will be enhanced.
The pool area is found behind the villa through the olive groves along a stone path. Both the path and the swimming pool are illuminated for evening swims. Around the pool patio you will find some potted flowers and herbs as well as built in speakers that connect to the stereo in the main house for your convenience. From the pool, the west side of the lake, forest covered hillsides and the sienna colored rooftops of Passignano are visible.
Around the pool area are small sloping hills that flank the olive groves. Each hill is home to many local plants that accommodate the changing colors of the seasons.
The deck area gardens overlook the eastern side of the lake and one of it's major islands, Isola Polvese. The deck itself is divided into two areas, separated by pomegranate trees and colorful geraniums. The first part of the deck is covered in lush grass with plenty of space for relaxing. The second part of the deck is covered in ancient stones and offers benches and tables available for private sunning, meals and socializing.
Enjoy a 360 degree view that encompasses Lake Trasimeno and its three islands, the surrounding countryside and the town of Passignano sul Lago. A wood or charcoal BBQ is also available for use for outdoor cooking.
"Monica was there to welcome us with a big smile and throughout the whole week she was so helpful and friendly. She done an amazing job on the wedding day. There are so many people to thank its hard to keep count! The whole week went perfect and we lived like royalty for the week! Amber still refers to the Villa as "her Castle"! Even the weather stayed glorious for the whole week."

"All in all it was more than a year and a half from the start of our emails, the planning, and finally the day I arrived in Passignano. After a very long journey from Canada to Italy we arrived at your restaurant to be greeted by Monica. Dearest, dearest, marvelous Monica! What a truly delightful lady you are. You were such a pleasure to work with and we really miss your smile and warmth! Such a darling and a fabulous assistant to Marco...we can't tell you how much all of your time and energy meant, especially having you there on our wedding day making sure everything to do with the reception was flawless. You are a charm!"
