The property lies halfway between the well known city of Orvieto and the Bolsena lake and it's charming villages. Beside the lake and Orvieto there are many nice villages to visit in the surroundings (Civita di Bagnoregio, Todi, Montepulciano, Tuscania,...) and it lies in a en excellent positioned to visit Umbria, southern Tuscany, Rome and northern Lazio. Siena and Rome are both at 1h30 driving and the sand beaches of Tarquinia are at 1 hour driving (the well known area of Argentario is at 1h20 driving). The whole property is for private use of the tenant (house, garden and pool are not shared with any other person). So it is a perfect place for those searching a relaxing place for their holidays. It's suitable for up to 4/5 persons (4 adults, 1 child, 1 baby) and has an own garden (completely fenced with entrance gate) with a 8 by 4 meter swimming pool (depth 1,5 meter). The pool area is completely fenced and there is a gate to access it, useful for families with young children or babies. Between the pool and the house there is a gazebo with table and chairs for eating outdoor (view on the pool area), there is also a barbecue nearby to cook. On the other side of the house the there is a covered terrace (can also be used as covered parking area for one car). On the ground floor there are a kitchen, dining/living area, bathroom and a small single bedroom (we suggest for a child). On the first floor 2 bedrooms, one with double bed the other with two single beds. On requests also baby cot available. Both bedrooms have air conditioning. Wi-fi internet connection free of charge available. All the most common household appliances are available (fridge, oven, dishwasher, washing machine, coffee/cappuccino maker, stereo/CD player, DVD player, TV and Sat-TV,...). It lies around 10 kms from the well known city of Orvieto and 10 Kms from the lake of Bolsena. The trainstation of Orvieto Scalo is 12 Kms far away. If you want to visit Rome and Florence, the trip is of around 1h30. The nearest shops (supermarket and some other) are in village of Torre San Severo (2 kms from the property). More shops and supermarkets are available in Porano and Bolsena (both at 10 kms). There is a big supermarket close to the highway exit at Orvieto, this is open all the days (also on Sunday) until 20h. Nearest restaurants:  Il bosco del pesce 1 km far away from the property, Il conte at 2,5 km, Fuorimano at 3,5 km. Other restaurants we advice: Il boccone del prete (close to Porano, very characteristic in a cave), Il corsica and La Palomba in the historic center of the city of Orvieto. Nearest golf courses: Acquapendente Golf Club at 15 Kms, the Golf Club Nazionale Resort is 70 Kms far away.

SURROUNDINGS

Lago di Bolsena is Italy's largest lake formed in the crater of an extinct volcano. The water of Bolsena is so clear, in fact, that it is completely safe to drink it. The local government has gone to great efforts to maintain the lake's natural purity; a technologically advanced purification system has eliminated the errors that might have been made before pollution-awareness was so developed. Luckily no industrial development mars Bolsena's shores, nor its views, and the gently sloping nature of the encircling land limits the amount of spill-off and soil erosion which could effect the water's transparency. The native fisherman still use the lake's water to make the local culinary specialty - a fish soup called sbrosia - a rarity to find.The lake is 12 km. long and 14 km. wide, with a maximum depth of 151 meters. The most important town on the lake is called Bolsena. Like so much of Italy, it bears the signs of almost every important period of the Italian peninsula, going back as far as the Iron Age and progressing through the times of the martyrs, catacombs and miracles and on to the Middle Ages. The Rocca Monaldeschi della Cervara sits at the top of the hill, overlooking the medieval quarter of town. The castle was built between the 12th and 14th centuries. It has been completely renovated and since 1991 has housed the Museo Territoriale del Lago di Bolsena (Lake Bolsena Territorial Museum). The museum is well laid out; each of its three floors is dedicated to various aspects of Bolsena's history, ranging from its prehistoric volcanic origins to its Etruscan-Roman period. A walk along the ramparts of the castle offers a gorgeous view of the entire lake and should not be missed. The Church of St. Christine is the town's other major site. It is a Romanesque church built in 1078 in a typical basilica style over the catacombs where St. Christine, a young woman martyred during the reign of the Roman Emperor Diocletian, was buried. From April to September, excursion boats depart Bolsena town headed for Bisentina and Martana, the islands in the lake. Both are privately owned and Martana is not open to the public, but Bisentina is an ex-summer residence of the Popes and has a large church on it. There are also seven small chapels built around the island. Don't think that Bolsena is just for history and culture buffs. It is also ideal for swimming, sailing, relaxation and dining. One of my fondest memories is having a delicious meal of grilled coregone (a local fish from the lake) at one of the many unpretentious restaurants lined up along the shore. If you happen to find one that's serving sbrosia, consider it your lucky day.


Orvieto is a place of great historical importance. So you see tourists the whole year round. Lots of them only visit the well known cathedral, the cathedral square and the central street full of ceramics and souvenir shops. They are wrong, because there is a lot more to see in this city and even more in the surrounding area. You have to go right through Orvieto to get a real impression of the unfamiliar setting of the city and the gleaming city walls on the volcanic tuff stone hill, plus characteristic monuments and museums with Etruscan finds.

SOUTHERN/CENTRE UMBRIA

In Umbria, a region that has gained a name for being the green heart of Italy, tourism is growing because of the unfamiliar harmony between nature, antiquities, historic centres and culture. The quiet of the countryside, good provisions and an inimitable cuisine are the great draw. This region is less touristy than Tuscany and this is especially appreciated by many tourists.

Southern/centre Umbria forms an ideal starting point for enjoying the peace of the surrounding hilly and mountainous landscape and on the other hand making trips to beautifull towns like Todi, Orvieto, Narni, Spoleto, Perugia, Gubbio, Assisi. There are also numerous charming little villages many of medieval origin - as Amelia, Labro, Spello, Norcia, Bevagna, Montefalco to visit. In many towns and villages you can taste local dishes or buy local wines and olive oil (generally of excellent quality). You can also easily visit in day trips - famous towns and charming villages in the southern part of Tuscany such as Siena, Arezzo, San Giminiano, Pienza, Cortona, Sinalunga, etc. Many tourists visit also Rome from here (without staying in the city which is very hot in summer) once or more times. It is possible to go by car (journey of 1h-1h30) or by train from the stations of: Terni, Narni-Amelia, Orte & Orvieto.

We must not forget the mountains with some splendid woods, e.g. Terminillo (up to 2000 metres by car). In around 1 hour it is possible to reach the shimmering lakes of Bracciano, Vico, Piediluco, Bolsena and Trasimeno. The Mediterranean Sea (mostly sand beaches) situated between Tarquinia and Chiarone are 90-120 Kms away (around 1h20-1h40 driving). Near the city of Terni you can also visit the Marmore falls (165 meters, one of the highest of Europe), there is nearby also a rafting/canoeing/hydrospeed center.
