We visited La Porcilaia twice before in 2006 and 2010. We loved it so much we had to come again! You have the whole of the top floor of the house which is reached by the stairway shown on the picture. It has been fitted out to a very high standard and furnished tastefully to produce the rustic Italian feel but with all the mod cons you need. Our favourite part of the house is the Loggia where we enjoyed having breakfast and watching the sun set over Lake Bolsena in the evening. It is ideally situated for visiting the nearby lake which is good for swimming and also many interesting towns around. Giulia and Malcolm have lots of useful tips of places to visit nearby and restaurants. Our favourite town is Orvieto which is the nearest big town. We would also recommend a trip to Villa Lante and Parc de Mostri.
