Delightful house in great location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 1 week stay at Bolsena in this charming house, we stayed May 2015. We were met by Massimo who explained everything and he also kindly took us for a short tour to point out the restaurants and bars, parking etc. We found the house to be very well equipped, clean and comfortable, it felt very homely and we enjoyed eating some of our meals and reading books, relaxing outside on the terrace. Our son travelled from Rome to stay one weekend and we picked him up from Orvieto train station, just 15 minutes away from the house by car. The train journey to Rome is 1 hour, so perfect if you wanted to spend a day in the capital. We enjoyed being in Bolsena, never having been here before, I have to admit we were surprised at how beautiful it is and the surrounding countryside and hill towns are also stunning. We spent one morning walking part of the Francigene Way and heard cuckoos calling in the woods. Magic.

The neighbours always thoughtfully asked if everything was OK if we bumped into them outside the house. We ate like kings that week: our menu ranged from delicious porchetta panninis purchased for lunch from just across the road, fresh water fish from the lake at lakeside restaurant, Sunday lunch was at the osteria/bookshop behind the house, the Tanaquilla restaurant is well worth a visit, scrummy, and in between times we did our own meals buying local delicacies from the supermarket nearby and the alimentari.

The house is perfectly situated in the centre of Bolsena so you can experience Italian life as a local and not have far to walk home at the end of an evening!

Thank you Adele and Massimo for helping to make our holiday a good one, hope to be back

Great appartments!

  • 5 of 5

The apartments were really great - it was clean, looks good, has lot of fancy things in it which makes it feel like in own home. It also has everything you need for your stay. Owner was really kind and explained everything and showed apartments, informed about best places in area and even suggested tours around.

Also Bolsena as a place is great for lazy relaxation or as a central point for tours to discover Umbria, Lacio and Tuscany regions.

  • 5 of 5

"This is the perfect flat for a couple looking for a romantic holiday or just a break from their busy lifestyle. The owners are very hospital and go out of their way to accommodate and help you. The flat is in close vicinity of shops and restaurants and the lake is only a short distance by bike."

  • 5 of 5

"The appartment is special. It's cosy, very big meaning 1 couple/family, located in an awsome part of a small old town. There are many pleasant things in it, making one feel like home. Besides, the appartment contains spacious hall, lovely terrace for breakfast and barbeque (applied), "room for thinking" etc. The place is beautiful and quiet. Great medieval quarters (fortress) just above, beautifl lake below. Supermarket, pizza, bakery, bar, a couple of nice restaurants and the main street of the old town are quite near, pub and gelateria (ice-creams) are 3 mins walk. 1,5 hour by car to Rome, half an hour to any of a range of old nice towns."
