This was my first stay at this property, and the first time I have used HomeAway. The website is very informative, and I found extremely easy to use. Guido was extremely helpful and communicated promptly and effectively.
We arrived later than expected, although we had informed out hosts with a quick text message that we were still in Bologna rather than Bracciano when we were meant to arrive! This was no problem at all, and both Sandro and Rosaline were very friendly, showed us around the place quickly and left us with a nice cool bottle of white wine and some delicious cake. They were considerate that we were knackered and wanted to shower and sort ourselves out.
The villa itself is wonderful - the views are absolutely amazing, especially from the sun terrace off the master bedroom, out the kitchen window, and outside the lounge in the outside dining area. We ate most of our meals here as it was convenient, cool and already mentioned the countryside is beautiful. We also ate a few times over under the shade next to the oven - Sandro and Rosaline showed us all how to do authentic Italian pizza in their own pizza oven over the back of the garden. He used meditteranean pine wood, and they were to die for... The barbeque is just around the corner of the oven, built on to the side and we enjoyed some tasty trout and sea breem one blazing hot day.
The place is extremely quiet except for the occasional plane passing overhead en route to/from Fiumicino, and half dozen vehicles down the lane. At night the surrounding countryside comes alive with the sound of all the local wildlife which we found quite nice to listen to on the sun terrace watching the twinkling lights in the distance.
Rome is either roughly an hour drive, depending on what route is taken or a simple train journey from Bracciano. A journey is 3 euros each way! Ladispoli is quite near for a trip to the beach, but we went at night time and managed to stumble across a night market in the town centre. We actually preferred the Lago di Bracciano (lake) to the beach! Anguillara is definately worth a trip as is the lake front down from the castle in Bracciano. The restaurant/bar 'Il Pescatore' does amazing pizza 'a porta vee' (takeaway)
A memorable trip for all the family. Sandro and Rosaline are excellent hosts, and literally couldn't do enough to help us, going out of there way to help us. We hope to return :-)
Bellissimo il posto , la villa, l'accoglienza dei padroni di casa,fatta di disponibilità e discrezione al tempo stesso. Nuotate vere in piscina, in posizione panoramica . C'è il forno a legna per una ottima pizza, un angolo ombroso e panoramico sotto una grande quercia, una altrettanto panoramica terrazza, da qui si toccano le stelle. Un posto magnifico per relax e a portata di pochi chilometri Bracciano, Anguillara, ecc.
Villa is well maintained and equipped. Location is quiet (other than occasional flights overhead). Supermarket 5 minutes away. Owners are very helpful. Pool is excellent. Good place for a quiet, by the pool, break.
Mooi huis en warm welkom door Sandro en Rosa, het huis is van alle gemakken voorzien en is zeer schoon. Het zwembad vonden onze kinderen geweldig! Leuke uitjes gemaakt naar Rome, gemakkelijk te bereiken met de trein vanaf Bracciano.
Dit vakantiehuis staat nu hoog op ons lijstje , zowel het huis als de eigenaar krijgen een maximum score ,

Alles tip top in orde; prachtige ligging ; proper huisje; mooie slaapkamers ; zwembad proper en verzorgd ; de gastheer en gastdame ontzettend vriendelijke mensen steeds paraat als je een vraag had of wat dan ook. Één kleine tip voor in de zomer periode een airco of een koude lucht blazer in de slaapkamers zou welkom geweest zijn; algemeen is het een echte aanrader voor iedereen ; Rome is vlakbij en ook andere dingen om te bezoeken groetjes
A holiday in Bracciano is recommended for those who want to visit Rome and the surroundings but would like to stay in the countryside not too far from city. The sand beaches on the Bracciano lake are 8 kms away while the sand beaches of Ladispoli are at 25 kms. It lies nearby the lake of Bracciano with the charming villages/towns of Trevignano-Bracciano (and his castle)-Anguillara. You can easily visit a lot of historic places like Ostia Antica to the west of Rome, Viterbo, Tuscania, Bracciano, Tarquinia and Cerveteri. Both of the last two towns are mainly known for the Etruscan tombs and the museums with finds from the graves. Then there are various smaller places like Sutri and Calgata, situated in a panoramic tuff stone valley. It is also well located for golf holidays, there are 2 courses at 24 kms (Golf Nazionale & Golf club Olgiata) and there 4 further one within 70 kms (Marco Simone, Parco de Medici, Roma golf Club & Golf club arco di Costantino). The thermal garden of Stigliano are 15 km far away.
