Hause am Bolsena See

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben unseren schönen Urlaub mit 4 Erwachsenen in diesem vollständig und liebevoll renovierten Haus mit einem wunderbaren Blick auf den Bolsena See verbringen dürfen. Alle notwendigen Dinge sind vorhanden in Bad und Küche, es gab ausreichend Handtücher und Bettwäsche und der Pool war nicht nur unglaublich groß sondern auch sehr sauber und wenig gechlort. Da er nicht beheizt war, war das Wasser allerdings im September schon ziemlich kalt. Im Hochsommer ist es sicherlich herrlich.

Das Haus sieht genauso aus wie auf den Bildern, es hat zwei Schlafzimmer und zwei Badezimmer, eins davon im Keller, sowie eine Küche mit offenem, kleinem Wohnbereich. Es verfügt über Mückenschutzgitter, was wirklich gut ist, da es viele Mücken gab. Außerdem sind Fenster und Türen komplett mit Außengittern versehen, was aufgrund der einsamen Lage sehr beruhigend ist. Daher braucht es auch unbedingt ein Auto um mobil zu sein. Viele schöne alte Städte rund um den See wie Orvieto und Viterbo sind gut erreichbar mit dem Auto und lohnen sich zu besichtigen. Besonders empfehlenswert ist auch das Restaurant „Il Toscana“ in Bolsena.

Es war sehr ruhig, auch am Tag, abgesehen von einigen Treckern und Jägern.

Die Vermieter, Martina und Massimo, waren äußerst hilfsbereit und haben, als das W-lan nicht funktionierte, sofort einen Techniker organisiert. Nur die Verständigung war etwas holprig, weil wir kein Italienisch und sie kein Deutsch sprachen und nur wenig Englisch.

Wir können das Haus sehr empfehlen für 4 Personen für erholsame Tage und als Ausgangspunkt für Erkundigungen in der Umgebung.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

I'm actually reluctant to say how good this accommodation is for fear of it becoming difficult to book again! Beautiful house, fantastic location if you like being away from the crowds (which we do) and the most amazing scenery all around. This house is quite remote and you definitely need a car if only to be able to stock up on provisions. Lake Bolsena is within easy walking distance and is peaceful, quiet and unspoilt by tourism! We can only hope it remains that way. Everything in the house was clean, well maintained and well thought out, it was beautifully decorated and very comfortable inside and out. The owners of the property were lovely and very accommodating as we arrived much later than expected due to the cancellation of our flight. The owner came to the property during our week to clean the pool but was very unobtrusive and came and went within about 15 minutes with no fuss or bother. We would absolutely recommend this property without hesitation and have already booked to return next year but for longer next time.

Great house, great pool, somewhat remote location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a fortnight. We did not know exactly what to expect, but it totally exceeded our expectations. The house itself is great and big enough for a extended family. It includes air-conditioning, which is great for those hot Italian nights. All amenities were included, except for the electricity.

The facilities on the area were great. A fantastic pool, which was cleaned every two days and a large garden. There was space enough to sit or relax on the property.

The location was somewhat remote. There were no stores of places in the near area. But we came by car, so we could visit stores and places in the neighborhood.

In the evening there were a lot of mosquitoes. That's something to keep in mind.

There were no surprises, it really looked like the pictures on the website!

Het was een super gezellig huis, met alle nutsvoorzieningen. Een heel mooi uitzicht op het meer, en goed onderhouden tuin! Ook rustig gelegen, en toch niet te ver van toeristische plaatsen. De eigenaars zijn heel vriendelijk, en om de 2 dagen werd het zwembad gekuist, en de tuin verzorgd... De foto's op de site liegen niet!!! Een echte aanrader!!!

Als er dan 1 minpuntje zou zijn, is het dat het internet er niet echt goed werkt... Maar dat gebruik er niet vaak natuurlijk... ;-)

We hebben een GEWELDIGE tijd beleeft!!!

Prachtige locatie

  • 5 of 5

We werden hartelijk ontvangen door de trotse eigenaren en hun dochter. Zelf spreken ze geen Engels, maar hun dochter wel.

Elke 2 dagen komen ze op afspraak langs om de tuin en het zwembad te onderhouden. Het resultaat is er dan ook naar. Een heel mooie tuin met een prachtig uitzicht op het Bolsena meer. Ook het huis is smaakvol ingericht en is voorzien van alle gemakken.

Het enige minpuntje vonden wij de hoge energierekening. Zonder gebruik van de airco moesten wij 8 euro per dag betalen. Hier moet je dus wel rekening mee houden.

Bolsena lake
Car: necessary

The Lake of Bolsena, in a valley surrounded by breathtaking views and lush green hills and silvery olive groves, is entirely settled in the province of Viterbo, Lazio, but extremely close to both Tuscany and Umbria, and it is facing many towns by the very picturesque old towns centers, like Bolsena, Montefiascone, Marta, Capodimonte, Valentano, Gradoli and Grotte di Castro.

Bolsena is the largest volcanic lake in Europe, with its 113.5 km² and is the fifth largest Italian lake; from its surface also rises two islands, the Bisentina and Martana ones. Among the two, Bisentina is the largest and the only one that can be visited (because the other is private) with a ferry service departing from Bolsena and Capodimonte.

Lago di Bolsena is Italy's largest lake formed in the crater of an extinct volcano. The water of Bolsena is so clear, in fact, that it is completely safe to drink it. The local government has gone to great efforts to maintain the lake's natural purity; a technologically advanced purification system has eliminated the errors that might have been made before pollution-awareness was so developed. Luckily no industrial development mars Bolsena's shores, nor its views, and the gently sloping nature of the encircling land limits the amount of spill-off and soil erosion which could effect the water's transparency. The native fisherman still use the lake's water to make the local culinary specialty - a fish soup called sbrosia - a rarity to find.The lake is 12 km. long and 14 km. wide, with a maximum depth of 151 meters. The most important town on the lake is called Bolsena. Like so much of Italy, it bears the signs of almost every important period of the Italian peninsula, going back as far as the Iron Age and progressing through the times of the martyrs, catacombs and miracles and on to the Middle Ages. The Rocca Monaldeschi della Cervara sits at the top of the hill, overlooking the medieval quarter of town. The castle was built between the 12th and 14th centuries. It has been completely renovated and since 1991 has housed the Museo Territoriale del Lago di Bolsena (Lake Bolsena Territorial Museum). The museum is well laid out; each of its three floors is dedicated to various aspects of Bolsena's history, ranging from its prehistoric volcanic origins to its Etruscan-Roman period. A walk along the ramparts of the castle offers a gorgeous view of the entire lake and should not be missed. The Church of St. Christine is the town's other major site. It is a Romanesque church built in 1078 in a typical basilica style over the catacombs where St. Christine, a young woman martyred during the reign of the Roman Emperor Diocletian, was buried. From April to September, excursion boats depart Bolsena town headed for Bisentina and Martana, the islands in the lake. Both are privately owned and Martana is not open to the public, but Bisentina is an ex-summer residence of the Popes and has a large church on it. There are also seven small chapels built around the island. Don't think that Bolsena is just for history and culture buffs. It is also ideal for swimming, sailing, relaxation and dining. One of my fondest memories is having a delicious meal of grilled coregone (a local fish from the lake) at one of the many unpretentious restaurants lined up along the shore. If you happen to find one that's serving sbrosia, consider it your lucky day.
