The house itself is lovely with a fantastic kitchen, comfortable beds and a great sense of style. The outside space is equally fabulous with a large pool, plenty of loungers and an abundance of games and inflatables. The house and pool were so lovely that we didn't explore an much as we'd planned, but we did manage trips to Bolsena and Capodimonte for swimming, and to Civita di Bagnoregio and Montefiescone for evening walks. The pizza oven was an added bonus; due to gluten intolerance in 2 of our party we opted to make our own dough (we were able to source the ingredients easily from the local supermarket and the one in Bagnoregio) which worked surprisingly well. One earlier review had commented on the access road to the house, and I should just say that we found the unfinished track to be no problem at all in a standard estate car. To sum up, we had a fantastic week at the Yellow House and hope to return for a longer break soon... Thank you :)

The villa is spacious and large enough so that you don't feel on top of each other. The beds are comfortable too which was of benefit as a number of our party have had back problems in the past (and all the bedrooms have fans too). For any large party or family looking for an Italian villa holiday we would definitely recommend this one. For those disinclined to cook we ate out a couple of times locally and the food was always good.

Very relaxing and quiet location. Philippa Farrow was nice and helpful. I have already recomended the house for another group for next summer.
