Guglielmi Castle appears to rise from the lake on the magical island of Isola Maggiore on Lake Trasimeno. This spectacular property on the olive tree covered island was built in the 1800's on the grounds of a 14th century Franciscan Monastery dedicated to St. Francis of Assisi who lived on the island as a hermit in 1211.

The Castle walls encompass 96,900 sq. ft. with over 48,000 sq. ft. of view suites and guest rooms. The other 48,000 sq. ft. is covered by beautifully situated cloisters, terraces and shaded spaces looking out onto the lake.

The architectural structure presents high walls which six perimeter towers emerge from. The base is square. All the flat roofs, tower tops and tower bells have a railing and a crenellated battlement. The interior of the building is enriched with large halls which once were used as a display area to collect antiquities, chinoiserie and weapons and armor.

The Castle rests on an expansive 10 acre parcel that features an ancient lower tower, frontage to the lake, coves and pathways that lead around the island and to the village dotted with 14th century buildings and hundred plus year old olive groves.

The island is reachable by boat in a few minutes from the Port of Tuoro sul Trasimeno, or from the Port of Passignano sul Trasimeno.

The complex has been partly restored and the cost to finish the restoration is estimated to be around 12 million euros. This could be undertaken by the present owner who is an architect. The castle is available at 13,000,000 euros as it stands now or at 23,000,000 euros completely renovated to a 5 star standard.
