Enormous swimming pool with stunning views from the infinity edge to distant mountains. Many lovely and well thought of extras (for example towelling robes for the master bedroom). Beautiful area with many interesting places to visit. A real treat. The owner was extremely helpful as we prepared for our trip. Full of useful information and top tips.

It was equipped with everything that you would need and was quiet and relaxing. Our favourite part was the loggia where we spent most evenings watching the sun go down over Lake Bolsena in the distance. The owners, Malcolm and Guilia couldn't have been more helpful both before and after our holiday. There were many lovely places within a short drive but we found that Bolsena had everything that we needed including some great restaurants. We would definitely stay again.

Spacious, tastefully decorated, very clean and with a well stocked kitchen. The grounds are beautifully maintained with a huge garden. The road to the house is a bit of a challenge as mentioned in the description so a sturdy car is recommended. We loved the area. We spent some time in Orvieto which isn't far away where there are plenty of good restaurants and things to do/see. We also visited the vineyard Decugnagno dei Barbi and spent a day at Bolsena Lake. The rest of the time was spent chilling and sunbathing by the pool. The climate was perfect with hot sunny days and cool comfortable evenings. Roberto was the perfect host, always available to help and give us tips when needed. He went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable :) We would definitely recommend this villa to others.
