The estate is located in the town of Magione, on the shores of the Trasimeno Lake, thirty minute drive from the historic centre of Perugia and 20 km from Cortona. The name Magione, which was first mentioned in 1075, derives from the Castle of the Knights of Malta, so called the Magione. Today the building stands in the town, and is characterized by a square with round towers and a courtyard on three sides that overlook lodges in three orders. The present structure is however, the result of an expansion of the existing mansion, which also incorporated an ancient Benedictine abbey of the XII century that is supposed to have been the seat of the Templars. After visiting the parish and the church of Madonna delle Grazie which dates back to 1209, it's well advised to take a hike up to the medieval villages of Montecolognola. It has a magnificent view of Lake Trasimeno and Monte Melino, the latter where you can visit the castle and the works contained in the parish church.
