About the property

The house is situated on a small hill, just 3 km from Bolsena lake but has a view to the sea. Surrounded by 100 olive trees and a very large garden with swimming pool and private, organic vegetable garden, this is the ideal place for stressed urbanites to unwind. Nature lovers can make beautiful walks from here, either the Via Francigena pilgrimage route along or in the badlands, the chalk cliffs of Civita di Bagnoregio.

You can end the day beautifully on the terrace with a glass of wine and, pampered by some breathtaking sunset.

It is possible to organize cooking classes at home or to indulge in the culinary skills of the owner of the house.

Polarity yoga classes can be organized in the house and you can select from various massages and craniosacral therapies..

We are also happy to organize for you trips and visits with Tourgiude to the sights of etruscan culture.

About Marion Schurholz De Paoli

Thirty years ago I came to Italy and we have lived in Rome for about 28 years. Here our 3 children grew up and I built up a Catering business. Live was fun but something was missing. We wanted to leave the roman caos and enjoy the country life. We found this beautiful house in wich we found what we were missing in Rome. Quite and country side, a stunning view to the sea only 5 minutes to the Bolsena lake, 11/2 to Rome, 30 minutes to Orvieto and only 15 minutes to Viterbo

Marion Schurholz De Paoli purchased this villa in 2013

Why Marion Schurholz De Paoli chose Montefiascone

The view of this house is breathtaking . Never ever in my life I have enjoyed sunsets so much as now, sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine.

Here you have the comfort of a big house but the quite of the nature at the same time

What makes this villa unique

Isolated and quite position, very good equipped house, pool, big garden and even in the hot summer, there is always a refreshing breeze

Wow.....perfect house in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived I knew I had booked the perfect place. Marion welcomed us with a homemade meal and a well stocked fridge and kitchen( arranged prior to our visit). The location is stunning, the house is elevated with fantastic views all around. The pool was an instant hit with the children (and adults). The house was extremely spacious. We were a party of 5 adults and 5 children and you could always find a quiet spot if needed. Plenty of wildlife to see, bee-eaters, hummingbird hawk moths, elephant hawk moth, lizards, swallowtail butterflies, hoopoes. The sunsets and stars were amazing. The local villages we visited were all beautiful and full of Italian charm.

We all had a wonderful holiday in a truly wonderful place.

A great Villa in a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great villa in a good location. A car is essential. The owners are very welcoming and helpful and the meal we had prepared for our arrival was fantastic. Marion had a litter of 4 month old Dachshunds that were incredibly friendly and had us in stitches.

We were able to pick figs and herbs in the garden and were given some olive oil so we had a real taste of home grown produce. We had shopping picked up for us on arrival so we were able to get straight into relaxing around the pool.

There was plenty of room for a family of 9 adults of mixed ages and we would definitely recommend staying here.

The area has not become a tourist centre so everything is reasonably priced from the villa to dining out.

A trip to Orvieto is a must and is less than an hour away.

Fantastic !

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as described. Large, spacious, cozy, and very clean.

The villa was fully equipped with everything we need .

The owners were very nice people and friendly. They helped us with everything and every advice. Marion is a very talented cook and we had the pleasure of eating her food more than once.

We were six adults and three children and the house suited us perfectly.

The quiet location on top of a hill, the wonderful pool, the open view - everything was to our complete satisfaction. Perfect place for children.

We came to enjoy - and this is what we got !

Warmly recommend the place!

Fantastic! This is the best word to describe the house & the owners.

We spend one week with all the family - 8 adults and 3 children. The house is perfect - big enough and very well equipped, the swimming pool is great and there is a huge garden which the children can play.

Marion - the owner - and her husband are very friendly and were very attentive and welcoming. Marion is a very good cook and we loved what she cooked for diners. Love every moment there.

"Das Leben ist ein Fest", besonders hier!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben in diesem so schönen Anwesen eine herrliche Woche verbracht. Wenn man abends nach den Besuchen der vielen etruskischen Highlights in der näheren Umgebung auf der Terrasse einen kühlen Weißwein mit atemberaubend schönem Blick genießt oder in den wunderbaren Pool springt, dann tritt endlich das totale Urlaubsgefühl ein. Wir haben das Haus in dem im Mietvertrag beschriebenen sehr gepflegtem Zustand vorgefunden. Wir waren ausschließlich Erwachsene und haben die zum Schlafzimmer (Betten, zu hart) gehörenden Badezimmer (Bidets, welch ein Luxus!) sehr genossen. Im Erdgeschoss gibt es die urige Küche mit Kamin und kleinem Frühstücksplatz, daneben einige Möglichkeiten in kleinerer und großer Runde an langen Tischen zu sitzen. Eine Sofaecke, auch wieder am Kamin, veranlasst zum Lesen und Rückzug. Die Küche hat alles, was das Kochherz begehrt und die Vermieterin, die eine hervorragende Köchin ist, bietet ihre Künste, bei Bedarf auch ihren Gästen an. Wir haben das gerne in Anspruch genommen, wurden bestens verköstigt und haben noch einiges über die wirkliche Küche Italiens kennengelernt und tolle Rezepte mit nach Hause genommen.

Dass die Eigentümer mit ihren lieben Hunden auch auf dem Gelände wohnen, haben wir, weil wir viel unterwegs waren, als Entlastung empfunden. Das Anwesen ist so groß, dass eine stetige aber diskrete Präsens von Mensch und Hund eher beruhigend wirkt. Außerdem waren uns die vielen nützlichen Tipps über Land, Leute und Kultur, die eben nicht im Reiseführer stehen, besonders wertvoll.

Ohne Auto allerdings ist man dort aufgeschmissen, obwohl der Zufahrtsweg zum Haus abenteuerlich ist. Schlagloch lässt grüßen! Fahrradfahren auf den Straßen ist nicht zu empfehlen, die italienischen Autofahrer sind - gelinde ausgedrückt- schnittig unterwegs.

Und für die Naturfreunde: nachts singt die Nachtigall, tagsüber der Kuckuck!

In diese Gegend und in dieses Haus, auf jeden Fall wieder!

gutes Haus mit Abstrichen

  • 3 of 5

Wir (6 Personen) haben in der Zeit vom 24.07.-11.08.2017 unseren Familienurlaub hier verbracht.

Es ist ein optisch sehr schönes Haus und ein guter Platz.

Wir denken, folgendes sollte man vorher noch zusätzlich wissen :

1. Der Pool hat insgesamt nur eine Tiefe ca. 1,30m. Das reicht zum Abkühlen und Planschen. Zum Schwimmen und Springen ist es nicht geeignet.

2. In den Sommermonaten gibt es um den Pool keine grüne Wiese wie auf den Bildern. Der Bereich wird von den Eigentümern nicht bewässert. Also läuft man hier auf der trockenen Erde und den vertrockneten Pflanzen.

3. Das Haus ist schon ziemlich abgewohnt sowie sehr hellhörig. Die Sofas sind zum Teil durchgesessen, fleckig, zerfetzt und mit Decken abgedeckt. WC-Brillen passen nicht richtig, WC-Spülung spritzt in alle Richtungen, 4 Betten sind von älterer Qualität, unbequem und machen laute Geräusche bei jeder Bewegung.

4. Es gibt 4 liebe Hunde (2 kleine und 2 große) auf dem Grundstück. Diese bellen allerdings in der Nacht häufig und sehr lange. Wer das nicht gewohnt ist, hat nachts eventuell Probleme beim Schlafen.

5. Die Eigentümer sind sehr nette und hilfsbereite Menschen. Sie wohnen in einem kleinen Haus mit auf dem Grundstück in unmittelbarer Nähe. Sie sind stets present.

6. die zusätzlich berechnete Bettwäsche und Handtücher werden auch bei einem Aufenthalt von 3 Wochen nicht gewechselt. Man kann aber alles selbst waschen. Im Kellergeschoss gibt es eine Waschmaschine.

Owner's Response: Eigentlich bin ich sehr erstaunt über diese Bewertung, da ich den Eindruck hatte, dass die Familie einen schönen Urlaub bei uns verbracht hat. Dass diese Bewertung sehr übertrieben ist und nicht der Realität entspricht, kann man schon daran erkennen,,dass die Gäste, die zwei Wochen vorher hier war eine ganz andere Bewerrtung geschrieben haben.
