Gioacchino or Ingrid purchased this villa in 2005
Finished to build in 2005 on a beautiful plot overlooking the lake and the Castle, following early retirement and with the scope to use part of the villa as a unique vacation home on behalf of people looking for a relaxing and panoramic landscape, and convenient resort near Rome,and ancient surroundings.
The lake area with sailing, swimming, surfing,, the climate, the selection of unexpensive restaurants in the ancient city of Bracciano, close to Rome(32 KM) and the sea(16 KM), and the W Bracciano festivity rich of events, as concerts and plays, from July to August, plus the railway connection to Rome, every half an hour, and Viterbo every hour, makes this destination probably the most suitable tourist city in the Lazio region.
We had a very nice stay in the appartment of Ingrid and Gioachino. Very complete interior and the view outside is stunning. The centre of Bracianno is near and it's central location is perfect for visits to Rome or a drive around the beautifull lake.
Gastvrij echtpaar Gruppo, heerlijk koel appartement (van alle gemakken voorzien), fijn zwembad, rustige omgeving, met de trein in een uur in Rome. Ideaal voor oudere echtparen. Niets was te veel om het ons naar de zin te maken.
A good sized apartment with every amenity required, shady in the day with a stove available for cooler evenings. The glistening pool is just metres from the door, surrounded by gardens, with room to lounge all day. Beyond is a stupendous view of the lake, with hills beyond and mountains in the distance. Later at night there is absolute quiet, so a restful sleep is guaranteed. Our hosts Gioacchino & Ingrid couldn't do enough for us, from picking us up if required, to booking tickets online and organising car hire. This was a memorable holiday and the warm sunny weather every day was a bonus.
Had a lovely stay in Bracciano - the apartment was exactly as described. It was clean & had everything you could possibly need for your holiday. The owners are lovely helpful people, making sure we had all the information we needed & we really enjoyed spending time and chatting with them - would recommend the apartment.
We enjoyed a wonderful, warm and sunny, ten days here in Bracciano . The owners were welcoming and extremely helpful.The pool, garden and apartment were everything we had hoped for.Train services into Rome were frequent and efficient. The lake and areas around provided beautiful walks, restaurants and historic sites.
We had a very nice stay during the First week of September and we experienced a nice welcome by the owners Ingrid & Gioacchino.
The apartment is nicely furnitured and well equipped. The view from the garden and pool over the lake and surrounding landscape is very beautiful.
The owners of the apartment also advised us in a good and understandable way according to our planned visit to Rome and various other excursions (especially including the possibility of public transport to Rome). Also good advice about the local restaurants etc. was provided. Due to their very good advice our stay in Bracciano was even nicer.
This area, beside the beautiful lake landscape and the many water sport activities, is located in the vicinity of a vast archaeological area spanning from the first Etruscan sites, to the huge Roman heritage and the medieval time. The Castle Orsini/Odescalchi, due to its excellent state is one the most important in Italy, dominating with his size all over the lake.
There is a train every half an hour to Rome Ostiense , which stops in many downtown stations in between, as well as to Viterbo.
