This is a beautiful, well-maintained property overlooking Lake Bolsena. The house sits on a large lot with lots of green space and nice gardens. It is quite private and has a view down over farm fields out to the lake about 500m away. The house itself is very nice inside and was very clean and tidy when we arrived. It has a well-equipped kitchen with most of what you might want for cooking. The only item missing was a microwave oven. We found the beds very comfortable and there was lots of closet space. The owner obviously takes pride in ownership and comes personally to tend the grounds and pool (at agreed times). There are two bedrooms on the main floor and a further bed for older children on a loft floor (as can be seen in photos). The house is fully air-conditioned, but it also has window screens, so we found in early September that the AC wasn't needed much. The pool is very large and is great for swimming lengths. It is kept very clean by the owner. We enjoyed walks along the road bordering the lake, visited the beach on the lake (about 30min walk) and also walked into Gradoli on the gravel road (40min up hill). We happened to go over the siesta time that starts at 1pm, so not much was open, but much to our surprise, we met the owner on the street. He works at the local city government, which is housed in the 15c Palazzo.We speak almost no Italian and he speaks almost no English, but he was kind enough to give us a private tour of the Palazzo and a quick walk through the Costume Museum in the palace. I would highly recommend this property.
We (my husband and 2 small children) stayed here for a couple of weeks in August, and had a terrific holiday. The apartment was very clean, and charming, with everything we required. It is situated in the medieval part of the town, which is just magical, and with loads to do nearby (including the beach)- although we would also have been happy simply to enjoy the town and take in the wonderful atmosphere for the whole 2 weeks. The apartment is situated in a courtyard with a small Roman fountain on the wall. It was so peaceful and quiet, yet with lovely cafes and shops a stone's throw away. Also, there were several lovely restaurants in the town. We are definitely planning to return, and will book early to ensure we stay here again!
