We currently live in Trevignano Romano and have lived here for 10 years after moving away from Rome.
It is one of the prettiest towns outside of Rome, and has won many aknowlegments for one of the best smallest town in Italy.
We have travelled much of the world, and have lived abroad for many years , in Canada and France .
A bit of Canada , a bit of France and of course Italy makes up our family......
Absolutely one of the best views in town....
Peace, tranquillty , nature at it's best and no noise.....
As soon as i saw the breathtaking view , i knew I wanted to make this house my home! I was just breathless , and felt the relaxing atmosphere about the whole area, after years in Rome , i choose this small lakeside gem town to make my home and i have never regretted it. There is a total amazing laid back feeling where you can just forget about everything and enjoy the promenade by the lake and go have a cappuccino or really good Italian ice cream in the many bars along the walk.
La Maison de Sophie is peace and nature , the sun will shine on the lake and reflect onto the terrace , that was enough for me to fall in love with it.
A fabuolous apartment , a warm welcome from the ownere, stunning views over the lake, great little village. Percect!
We loved it here. The place was clean and beautiful. We will be back whenever we are in Rome.
We had a fantastic time at this place. It was clean, well lit and beautiful. The balcony is perfect for the quite dinner with a nice glass of wine. You cannot beat the views. The way it is displayed online is exactly the way it is. We will be back. Working with the owner was awesome, super simple to rent.
After researching many listings in the area we decided on Trevignano and La Maison De Sophie. I cannot recommend this place enough. You will be hard pushed to find better and we definately made the right decision staying in Trevignano over Bracciano, as recomended by our Italian freinds. Finding this gem of a place was a huge bonus.
We arrived late afternoon and felt so relaxed in this apartment we'd settled in like it was home by early evening.
This is a great apartment that really does feel like a home, the view is amazing, it is decorated very tastfuly, is super comfortable and peaceful being set away from the main road.
The owner, Eve, was a joy to meet, she keeps the apartment clean and takes pride in it, she has a wealth of information on the area, where to go and what to do, which she is happy to share and give her time doing so.
Our only complaint would be that we didn't have more time to spend there, we will be seeing you again Eve, thank you for a great stay and your hospitality.
My family and I spent the final days of our trip to Italy at La Maison de Sophie. Although I had read many outstanding reviews about this property,it still exceeded our expectations. It was easy to locate by car and the setting was absolutely gorgeous! Situated at a higher elevation than most of the other homes, allowed for the most spectacular views. When we arrived ,we received a warm welcome from Eve. Upon entering her home, we were extremely impressed with its lovely furnishings(Eve has a true flair for decorating!)and beautiful views of Lake Bracciano from every room.We experienced a heightened sense of excitement as we stepped out onto the spacious veranda which boasts even greater panoramic views of the lake, lush vegetation, and surrounding hillsides. The cool breezes and tranquil sounds of nature ,along with comfortable lounge chairs and a dining set, made it the perfect retreat ! To be able to observe the sun rise and set was truly amazing. The home was very clean, equipped with many unexpected amenities, including a delicious bottle of French wine, compliments of Luigi, who we met the next day. Both Eve and Luigi were genuine and gracious hosts, who went out of their way to accomodate our every need and offered wonderful suggestions on places to visit and restaurants to dine at. The town of Trevignano Romano is quite charming! Taking scenic drives along the lake, visiting the quaint shops ,making daily trips to the fabulous bakery and foodmarket
in town,as well as dining at some of the local waterfront restaurants, were some of our most enjoyable daily rituals. The apartment's ideal location, only a 30 minute drive to Rome, enabled us to spend more time sightseeing and we even returned one night for dinner. We also planned a day trip to Florence and stopped off in Sienna on the way back. Yet, the highlight of our trip was to simply relax and unwind at the lake , which we managed to do almost every day since the weather was just as perfect as our stay! Having spent the previous week in a luxury villa overlooking the sea on the Amalfi Coast, we thought nothing could top that experience. However, our stay at La Maison de Sophie was truly comparable, if not better in some ways .Our only regret was not having more time there. We will relish the memories and hope to return in the near future!
We feel very fortunate to have discovered this little piece of heaven and to have met Eve, Luigi, and
their absolutely adorable daughter, Sophie!
The apartment is very pretty and arranged with much love for detail. We found everything we needed. The view from the balcony is very beautiful so we had most of our meals outside enjoying the italian landscape. Trevignano is a nice little village with a lovely promenade, good restaurants and a peaceful atmosphere. You can reach Rome easily by train from Bracciano. We highly recommend this apartment, communication with Eve was always very friendly and helpful.
A perfect way to enjoy Italy. The apartment was amazing. It came with everything you could possibly need for a perfect stay. The view was incredible and we chose to cook and eat in most nights because there was no better view in Trevignano.
Luigi was a wonderful host and we really appreciated his help getting to and from Trevignano from Bracciano and for showing us around on the first day.
Trevignano itself is a lovely place with pretty bars and restaurants where you can just sit, relax and enjoy the lake.
Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and hope to return one day soon!!!
