We throughly enjoyed our week holiday in this house built into the walls of the medieval town of Bolsena. Every thing was close at hand including more restaurants than we could eat in, a small supermarket, and other shops within a stonethrow. The bed was comfortable and an open log fire warmed us as we were out of season. It did not have wifi but it was no problem as you can piggyback on any of the restaurants.
I would thoroughly recommend it to any couple looking to explore this interesting part of Italy. The only downside is that I would not recommend it to anyone not good on their feet as the stairs are steep, shiny wood and open at one side but that should be no problem for anyone wanting to go to old, fortified hilltop towns.
Thank you Philip! I am happy you found our accomodation really confortable and you enjoyed your holiday in Bolsena
Delightful house in great location
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
