About Rosemary Ellison
The owner who lives in Edinburgh, is a professional violinist and teacher and has spent a lifetime performing with leading orchestras. Studying in Rome led to a love affair with Italy and more recently to this Umbrian hideaway which she comes to as often as possible. When not there she hopes other people will enjoy it as much.
Why Rosemary Ellison chose Panicale
I bought the property because it is in a quiet and private position yet has easy access to the many beautiful towns of central Italy and beyond. The Umbrian hills with their chestnut and oak trees are a joy to explore and the contrast of Lake Trasimeno, make for a great variety of things to do. There are also many summer festivals and good restaurants in the area.
What makes this Cottage unique
The property is only a short distance above the hamlet of Macereto so is not isolated, and only 5 minutes by car from the shops. In a way it has the best of both worlds. For anyone keen on cooking, the kitchen has excellent equipment and access straight onto the terrace makes for easy living
