Located on the northern shores of the almost perfectly spherical Lake Bracciano, just 50km from Rome, Trevignano Romano is a beautiful little town in the Lazio region of Italy. It is hard to describe the absolute beauty of this peaceful and tranquil part of the world which has attracted many artists, nature lovers and those who are at home in the great outdoors for many years.
The massive Trevignano Romano Castle, which dates back to the 11th Century, is one of the first things to grab you attention on the drive towards your Trevignano Romano accommodation for the first time. The castle, erected by order of the Pope has had a long and torrid history, but remains an impressive monument, and is well worth investigating from a self catering Trevignano Romano villa or apartment. The medieval quarter of Trevignano Romano is a great place to walk, soaking in the sights and sounds of the town, and if you are looking for a top-class restaurant during your stay in a Trevignano Romano villa, try the tree-lined lakeside streets.
Lake Bracciano, upon whose shores the town stands, is a centre for sailing excellence in Italy. All around the lake are sailing schools and clubs which will be more than happy to arrange sailing lessons or equipment hire, allowing you to take a relaxing afternoon, a little food, and head of around the lake to find an idyllic spot to call your own for a few hours. The water of the lake is staggeringly clear, making it an ideal destination for not only sailing, but also windsurfing and canoeing.
The proximity of the Le Querce Golf Club to a Trevignano Romano property makes a round magnificently easy to take. Offering a challenging 18 holes and picturesque views from every tee, playing the Le Querce course is a real pleasure. The rest of the region is a veritable playground for walkers, cyclists and riders in the area, with huge swathes of open, unspoilt countryside just waiting to be discovered. There are a range of stables in Trevignano Romano which offer guided rides and horses to hire.
Of course, the proximity of Rome to a self catering Trevignano Romano property means that visiting Italy’s capital is a regular day trip for visitors. The Eternal City needs little introduction, but there is far to much entertainment and attractions to cover in a day trip, so choose the most important places you wish to visit before leaving your Trevignano Romano accommodation.
In summer, average temperatures soar to around 32?C, which makes the proximity of Lake Bracciano a real asset to holiday makers in the area. The fresh air of the region makes the summer heat far more bearable than it is in the city of Rome, and therefore a delightful place to base yourself for a holiday exploring the amazing treasures of the city. In winter, temperatures drop to an average of around 15?C, which is remarkably pleasant for sightseeing, walking and golf, especially as the tourist crowds have left the area long ago.
A holiday home in Trevignano Romano is just a short drive from the Rome Fiumicino Airport (FCO) which is a huge transport hub for British tourists. Flybe offer some excellent deals on cheap flights to Trevignano Romano.
