Great property within lovely surroundings

5 of 5
A large, comfortable, fully equipped top floor apartment with excellent extensive views over the surrounding countryside and Lake Bolsena beyond which is a short drive away. We arrived during a long period of very hot dry weather. We were delighted to find that gentle breezes from the direction of the lake helped to keep things comfortable during the many hours we spent on the balcony for meals or just relaxing with a glass of wine taking in the sunsets over the lake. The property was a good base for exploring the many picturesque hill-top and lakeside towns and villages like Orvieto, Bolsena, the delightful Civita di Bagnoregio which are relatively near and Cortona, Spoleta, Assissi and Pienza which are a couple of hours away. The property is in a lovely secluded location. Situated at the end of a long drive, you won't be disturbed by passing traffic. Malcolm and Giulia , the owners use the lower apartment when they visit and are discreet and unintrusive hosts. They are excellent company and are always available for guidance on places to visit. They have owned LaPorcilaia for several years during which time they have been carefully and expertly transforming a run down former agricultural property into the lovely property with landscaped grounds that we see today. We enjoyed our stay at LaPorcilaia immensely and would thoroughly recommend it to others.

Relaxing & tranquil

5 of 5
This is a delightful spot. It is so peaceful and quiet. The villa is lovely and perfect for a getaway from it all holiday. The weather was good, not too hot but warm enough. We didn't use the excellent pool as much as we'd have liked due to the weather which was a bit disappointing but it was September after all. We would certainly recommend the villa and would like to come back. Maurizio, the caretaker, could not have been more helpful, friendly and discreet. .All in all a near perfect holiday. Thank you.
