The Surrounding Area
The Pieve International School Campus nestles among the Umbrian gently rolling hills around Lake Trasimeno. The estate's surrounding area is typically Italian, characterized by a landscape of fields, hills and mountains dotted with olive trees and vineyards.
The whole area is rich in culture and history from ancient Etruscans to Romans, through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.
Just in front of the Pieve International School Campus, less than 50 meters from the front door, stands the Pieve del Vescovo Castle, from which the Campus takes its name.
The Pieve International School Campus is situated in the quiet countryside of Colle Landone [Landone Hill]. The medieval town of Corciano, perched on this hill, is just 1 km from the Pieve Campus and equidistant from Assisi, Lake Trasimeno and Perugia. Every summer this small town is enlivened with art, music and regional craft displays.
Just a ten minute drive from the Villa Pieve is the Natural Park of "Monte Tezio" and fifteen minutes away lays the famous Trasimeno Lake.
This area is world renowned for its architectural masterpieces one of which, "Romitorio", is sited on the road to Corciano.
The Castle of Pieve del Vescovo
The Castle of Pieve del Vescovo is dates back in the XIV century but the little church just inside the fortress is documented since XI century. The entire castle was restored during the Renaissance according to the instructions of architect Galeazzo Alessi. For many years the Castle of Pieve del Vescovo was the summer residence of Pope Leo XIII, who loved the Umbrian countryside. Over the years many Bishops came to the Pieve Castle on vacation till the beggining of the 1900. Today the Pieve del Vescovo Castle is a national monument and one of the most beautiful medieval fortresses in Umbria.
