The property lies on the Tuscany-Umbria border at 2.8 km from the village of Allerona, 16 km northern from the well known town of Orvieto and 36km from the lake of Bolsena. It's a hilly and quiet location. From the garden you can enjoy the beautiful panorama on the countryside and the village of Allerona. The house has a private garden with a 8 by 4 meter pool (depth 1,5 meter), all private use of the tenant. On the back of the house there is parking place for 3 cars (2 covered parking places). The pool area can be completely fenced upon request. The passageway between pool and porch is normally open, for families with young children this can be closed. The garden/pool area is equipped with beach and garden chairs and sun umbrellas. There is also some shadow under the trees that surround the house. In front of the house there is a big porch with table and chairs for 13 persons.There is also a barbecue available to cook (and enjoy the panorama). The house can accommodate up to 13 persons + baby (cot and high chair available on demand). The house has a double bedroom on the ground floor, the other three are on the 1st floor and all have double bed (two rooms have also a single bed). The 5th bedroom is in the dependance and has a double bed and a single bed, this bedroom has also an en-suite bathroom with toilet and shower. The two other bathrooms are in the main house, one with toilet & shower on the ground floor and one with toilet and bathtub on the first.  In the village of Allerona (2.8 km from the house) are two grocery stores, a bar, two restaurants. In Allerona Scalo there are other bars, supermarket, tobacco shop, bakery, post office and some other shops. Big supermarket (also open on Sunday) close to the highway exit of Orvieto.
It is an ideal starting point not only to visit Umbria, southern Tuscany (Siena, Arezzo, Montepulciano), Rome and northern Lazio. From the property you are, by car, in about 20 minutes in the center of the city of Orvieto or on the highway Rome-Florence. The train station of Allerona-Castel Viscardo is 10 km away, the journey time for Florence is of two hours. If you want to go to Rome we suggest to take a train from the station of Orvieto (1h15 to arrive in the center of the city).

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.
