We stayed for one very hot week in August. The house has a charming garden and is situated in beautiful countryside. You need to drive on unmade roads for some of the way to approach the house, but once there you have a secure and sheltered parking space.
The house is tastefully restored, with very two good sized bedrooms, a beautiful lounge, and a separate dining room, and a well equipped kitchen. Very friendly and helpful owners, who even allowed me to experience their excellent observatory one evening.
Orvieto is beautiful and worth more than one visit, while lake Bolsena is only twenty minutes drive away so we could spend our afternoons relaxing and swimming.
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
