We visited the area as we are getting married next year at Villa San Crispoloto.
We arrived at Perugia and were taken back by the picturesque landscapes. We then drove into Passignano Sul Trasmieno and automatically fell in love. The area was beautiful, relaxing, calm and clean. Also we were only 45 minutes away from Assisi, Siena, Pienza and 5 minute drive from Tuoro.

We checked in to La Vela and were welcomed by the cheery disposition of Silvie. The hotel is family run and has such a warm and welcoming feeling. She is by far the most kindest, caring and thoughtful person we have ever met. She was always willing to give us advice, recommend places to visit and best ways to travel to different cities. Her staff also have the same attitude and were always willing to help and listen. She took such great interest in our wedding and was making us feel at ease about decisions we had to make.

The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Maid service every day. Access to WIFI and air con (which believe me was wonderful in 38 degree heat)! There is also a lift which is very helpful when you have heavy suitcases. We had a large wardrobe and enough hangers to hang our clothes.

The location was also fantastic as the hotel had parking for customers and was around a 5 minute walk from restaurants and they lake.

It's safe to say that i will be returning next year to see Silvie and her team and will also recommend that my wedding party stay there too as I know they will be looked after greatly!

Ciao Bella!

This is our second visit to Hotel Vela and it continues to be great value for money! it was Summer this time so we had the added benefit of air conditioning as well as all the positives I mentioned in my first review. We were lucky enough to arrive on an evening when there was a festa, so there we were, after our delicious meal downstairs in the Hotel restaurant sitting at our balcony enjoying a glass of wine watching the fireworks, doesn't get any better than that! We will be back again and soon!

Very clean and comfortable rooms. The restaurant has better food that the Michelin 1 and 2 star restaurants we ate at in Italy. Made us feel at home, and the breakfast - excellent. Location is just a couple of blocks from Lake Trasimeno, and walking distance to the Railway station.

We happened upon this hotel by fate. We did not know what to expect, but we were very pleased and surprised by this place. It is very clean and very comfortable. The rates were reasonable. However, the best part of the stay were the owners and the hotel staff. I would be very hard pressed to remember a more memorable stay. Everyone made sure we were well looked after. If we go back to Umbria, we will definitely stay there again.

Room tip: A room with a view of Lake Trasimeno is nice.

I can't recommend this hotel enough! Its such good value for money with breakfast included. It has modern clean bathrooms and all rooms come with a balcony and also a very handy mini bar fridge. The hotel boasts an extremely good restaurant with very good and reasonable priced house wine, seafood, lake fish and meats being its speciality. There is also a computer and printer downstairs which is at the guests disposal.

There was a train strike when we arrived in Florence so we couldn't travel to her hotel on the day we booked so I phoned Silvia to let her know we would be arriving the day after and she said there was no problem.

There is a lift, free parking and free Wi-Fi throughout and is only a 10 minute walk from the lake, its promenade and cafes.

The rooms are spotless with excellent diligent and efficient cleaning staff. But the best thing about the hotel is Silvia, nothing is too much trouble for her guests whether its a bottle of water if you're feeling a little hot or something from her first aid kit. If an issue arises, it is quickly dealt with, with no fuss. As Silvia says she tries to make her guests feel at home and indeed it does feel like a 'home from home'. You only have to ask and she will try her best to help in any way.

This family run hotel is clearly and rightly done so with pride. Silvia is a hard worker just like her mother who at aged 76 years of age still helps out and we laughed when I said Silvia was omnipresent!

Silvia and her staff speak English which is also a bonus in Passignano a lovely part of Umbria.

I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to any of my family or friends and I will be returning at the earliest opportunity.
