Relais Borgo Torale
Reviewed 18 June 2017

Our family of 18 re visited Torale on the 5 year anniversary of the wedding of Helen and Adam
It was as beautiful as ever . We had the most relaxed family gathering in apartments round the courtyard . Beautiful evening meals sitting out in the warm evening air. Happy fun packed days round the pool and long shady lunches .
The perfect place for an authentic Itailien family wedding - love it . Thank you once again Roberto - we hope to return again x

Room Tip: All are the same standard but a family group is best to be rooms facing the courtyard

We really can't recommend Torale highly enough... The property itself is spacious, perfectly maintained, and simply beautiful. The view down to Lake Trasimeno is also spell-binding; if you visit, you'll have many meals gazing across the owner's olive groves towards the lake and the hills behind it. The apartments themselves are immaculately maintained (with all mod cons, despite being 250 years old), and the pool are is fantastic. Positioned between Passignano, which is a large town beside the lake, and Tuoro, which is a quite little town a few nice restaurants and a supermarket, Torale is ideally located. Day trips to Siena, Assisi, Perugia, Florence and even Rome are also possible from here. It's possibly worth noting that Roberto, Doriana and Martina (the proprietors) are so friendly that we've visited this property no less than 3 times - something we've never done anywhere else! Oh, and keep an eye out for the bread man, who visits the property twice weekly with gorgeous pastries.

Being sat here writing the review on my last night safe to say I've had a great time. The place really is an absolute gem. Fantastic owner Roberto really goes over and above for all his guests. It's in a great location (you need a car) however the views are spectacular. Nice clean comfortable apartments with a great pool and really child friendly. A 10 minute drive to the great local town what more could you want. So glad we stayed here and would definitely return

Spent 4 nights in a 2 bed apartment in June. Although our unit dated from 1750 it was fully modernised with air conditioning without loss of the character of the original build. The owner (and original developer) Roberto was extremely friendly and very helpful with any queries. Wonderful, large outdoor swimming pool with loads of sun beds; incredible quiet location with long ranging views over Lake Trasimeno; only five minutes drive from Passignano Sul Trasimeno, the largest local town and 3 minutes from supermarket.

Borgo Torale, just a mile or two into Umbria, was ideally situated for visits to places like Cortona and Montepulciano in southern Tuscany as well as Perugia (30 minutes) and Assisi .

WiFi available (free) although with some walls 3 feet thick you sometimes need to go outside to get a signal.

We booked our wedding at Torale after visiting while on holiday. We went to see many potential venues in the area, but the package at Torale is perfect - nowhere else had such stunning views in such a traditional setting! I would add that the cost of the accommodation here is very reasonable; other venues which we considered were all far more expensive.

We booked the whole venue for three nights, with 44 guests staying comfortably in all 16 apartments. All of the apartments are very spacious, rustic and clean with full kitchen amenities. It feels very authentic and traditional, and fits perfectly with the surroundings. The communal areas at Torale are very beautiful and the views over the lake are absolutely stunning! We even paid a little extra to open the swimming pool (it's not usually open in April) and it was well worth it! The pool is lovely and provides a great place for people to come and relax.

Roberto and Martina treated us very well throughout our stay - no request was too much and they always went out of their way to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. We had exclusive use of the whole venue and we were able to treat the Borgo like our own home. We were able to use the pizza oven and two barbecues as well as the facilities in the rooms. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect and all of our guests fell in love with the venue and the area.

For us, the location here is perfect - you really feel like you are in a private, remote location but there are also two beautiful towns (Passignano and Tuoro) within a ten minute drive, and a well stocked supermarket just five minutes away. There are so many other beautiful places within easy reach (Montepulciano, Castiglione de Lago, Cortona). The area is spectacular as well and we'd highly recommend it for a peaceful, beautiful sightseeing holiday.

We will most definitely be returning to Torale in the years to come and can't recommend it highly enough!
