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.
