This is a lovely villa which has been tastefully decorated in a traditional style. We stayed here with our 3 children aged 3, 4 and 13 and they really enjoyed the lovely outdoor space and pool which is fully fenced. The property is very peaceful and situated between Orvieto and Bolsena (a car is essential). It was lovely waking up here and felt very safe and secure. The outdoor space is lovely especially the dining area which is raised with some nice views. The kids also loves the chair swing and the hammock. Very relaxing, especially at night when stargazing! Lake Bolsena is lovely and definitely worth a visit however Bolsena itself was quiet (late August), if you're looking for something livlier we'd recommend visiting the other side of the lake where you will find Capodimonte (40 mins) - a lovely area with lake side cafes and both boat and bike hire. Montefiascone is also a lively area with various bars and restaurants. Orvieto really is beautiful, a real hidden gem and with it not being as busy as Rome, Florence etc you can really enjoy it at your own pace. Best local bar is Bar Obelix in the small village of Tamburino on the way to Orvieto, this is a bustling Italian local with great service and atmosphere, and great simple food (pizza, light bites, paninis etc). The five of us had drinks, pizzas, desserts, sides, snacks and cocktails for around €45. We also visited the Ristorante Girarrosto with a great view overlooking Orvieto but to be honest we paid 3 times more and didn't enjoy it half as much. On one of our days out we drove to Rome (1hr 15) and took the metro from Rebibbia station which got us to the colosseum in around 15 minutes. Parking at the station costs €1 for up to 12 hours and we found the metro system straightforward to use and good value. Just a few points about the villa that would have made a great place excellent: The wifi is hosted from the owners house across the road and due to the house being sunken is intermittent in the property and only slightly better outside, we weren't able to stream. The pool is in the sun 12 - 5pm and struggles to get warm during this time. The air conditioning units are upstairs in the two bedrooms. There was only one UK TV channel, BBC world news. There wasn't a great deal of information on the local area or attractions so it's essential you do your research before you get there. All in all the location of the villa is in a lovely part

The view and scenery were amazing and the outside space was fabulous (house was welcoming and we enjoyed staying there). Luigi (owner) was incredibly welcoming and helpful - sorting out requests immediately and replacing a broken dishwasher within an afternoon (unbelievable service!!). Thank you for a great holiday and for looking after us. We loved the area and location and the house suited us down to the ground - everything we required. We had a great holiday. Thank you.
