Lake Bolsena - Secret Gem in the Heart of Italy: Everyone has heard of Lake Como and Lake Maggiore, but fewer people know about beautiful Lake Bolsena and the fascinating historic region that lies in the heart of Italy. It's not far from Rome or the popular Tuscan and Umbrian tourist spots and it remains one of Italy's best kept secrets.

Located on the borders of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio, Lake Bolsena is formed in the crater of an extinct volcano. Its waters are crystal clear, unpolluted and teem with fish, which are served in all the local restaurants. There are fine, volcanic sandy beaches that are perfectly safe for family bathing. The capital of the Lake is Bolsena itself. Once the Etruscan settlement of Volsini and medieval town of miracles, Bolsena has a medieval quarter and is famous for its gardens and annual flower festival.

Activities in and around Bolsena: The apartment is on the outskirts of Bolsena, yet only a ten minute easy walk from the town centre and seven minutes away from the lake shore itself. Whilst it's lovely to sunbathe and relax, there are also lots of recreational activities for those who are feeling more energetic.

You can swim safely in the lake and if you want to sail, Bolsena has a local sailing school that offers excellent opportunities to improve your boating skills whilst exploring the lake. Or if sailing isn't for you, why not try one of the inexpensive sightseeing boat trips that go from Bolsena's small harbour during the summer.

If you like cycling, bikes for adults and children are available to hire from along the town's lake shore. For those of you who enjoy horse riding there is also a local riding school on the outskirts of Bolsena. The beautiful, unspoilt countryside around Bolsena also offers perfect opportunities for walking, birdwatching and nature photography.

Key Bolsena Summer Celebrations in 2012:

June:

Feast of St Anthony of Padua, with traditional procession in the afternoon and fireworks display on the lake in late evening.

Hydrangea festival. Flowers are displayed along the streets of the historic centre. There is also an interesting tour of Bolsena's historical homes; tasting of wine, oil and typical products like the famous Lake fish.

Feast of Corpus Christi (infiorata). Every year the blood-stained stones are carried in procession through the streets, which are covered by the ‘Infiorata’ – a mosaic of coloured flowers, either arranged in geometric figures or depicting sacred art.

July:

Fish festival takes place on the lake shores in the afternoons.

The mysteries of Santa Christina - celebrated since the fourth century. Actors in costume depict a series of scenes representing the Mysteries and the Passion of Saint Christina in the ten episodes of her martyrdom.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a wonderful 2 weeks in your apartment and if it's available we hope to return again next year. The apartment was very comfortable, well situated, well equipped and clean, with plenty of space indoors and out.

Thank you for being so accommodating about our arrival time.

My husband and I live in Brighton, a lively cosmopolitan city by the sea, just an hour away from London by train. Fortunately we're not too far from Gatwick airport and this makes travelling to Italy easy and quick.

Christine MacFie purchased this apartment in 2008

We fell in love with Bolsena whilst on a walking holiday in Italy and returned the next year with the idea that we might buy a holiday home. When the local Agent showed us round this apartment we knew it was what we wanted. It took us a whole year to navigate the Italian legal system and buy our apartment. We've never regretted doing so and we're only sorry that jobs in the UK prevent us spending more time there. So we rent it out and invite our guests to share the pleasure of spending a comfortable time in this beautiful part of Italy.

The apartment has a beautiful view from the lounge and sun terrace across a local orchard to Lake Bolsena. It's really peaceful and relaxing and we love eating al fresco whilst watching the sun set over the lake.

UNBELIEVABLE!!!

  • 5 of 5
You have to stay here...After paying 330 Euros a night in Venice and paying premium for meals, Bolsena and this apartment made me realize why I had traveled from Florida to Italy. The apartment is located in a wonderful small lake town with great recreation opportunities, sightseeing, and cultural activities conveniently located. It made me once again appreciate Italy as the amazing country and culture it truly is.
The apartment is comfy with all the amenities...Stay there...You will be writing one if these reviews after in appreciation...Guaranteed...
Ciao

EIN SONNENPLATZ MIT SEEBLICK

  • 5 of 5
Die Ferienwohnung liegt in einer ruhigen Seitenstraße. Von der Terasse eröffnet sich ein Blick ins Grüne bis hin zum See. Hier kann man die Sonne genießen und die Seele baumeln lassen. Entsprechendes Mobiliar steht reichlich zur Verfügung. Die Wohnung selbst ist sehr gut ausgestattet. In der Küche ist alles funktionell und auf dem neuesten Stand der Technik. Die beiden Bäder garantieren auch befreundten Paaren ein gewisses Maß an Privatsphäre. Ins Stadtzentrum sind es nur wenige Minuten zu Fuß. Hier gibt es zahlreiche Restaurants, die auch in der Nebensaison geöffnet haben. Ebenso verhält es sich mit den Einkaufsmöglichkeiten. Die Wohnung eignet sich ausgezeichnet als Ausgangspunkt für unterschiedlichste Aktivitäten, sei es nun die Besichtigung von Sehenswürdigkeiten in der näheren Umgebung oder seien es Fahrradtouren von einfach bis sehr anspruchsvoll, hier wird vieles geboten. Die Voraussetzungen für einen unbeschwerten und erlebnisreichen Urlaub sind gegeben, die wir gern wieder nutzen werden.

Wir hatten eine wunderschöne Woche in Bolsena, fanden die sehr gut ausgestattete Ferienwohnung schnell und fühlten uns von Anfang an wohl bei Christine MacVie. Eine bleibende Erinnerung sind die ruhigen Abende auf der Terrasse mit Blick auf den See. Wir kommen gerne wieder!

SEHR EMPFEHLENSWERTE WOHNUNG

  • 5 of 5
Dieses Ferienappartment können wir uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen. Es ist sehr gut ausgestattet (u.a. Spülmaschine, Waschmaschine)
und liegt nur ca. 5 Gehminuten vom Stadtzentrum entfernt.
Der TV-Empfang ist auf RAI 2 beschränkt, dafür kann man mit dem Apparat aber DVDs abspielen. Der Balkon mit Sitzecke und Liegen ist sehr gut. Die Kommunikation mit der Vermieterin klappt wunderbar und ist wirklich vorbildlich.
Wir haben uns zu vier Personen sehr wohl gefühlt.

Bolsena is the capital and jewel of the Lake. The town is a superb base to explore the area and enjoy the local beaches and swim in the fresh water lake. The lake water is outstandingly clear and well stocked with fish, and the town and surrounding area has a number of excellent restaurants where you can enjoy the local catch. Our accommodation is situated near the town centre and the lake so it has the best of both worlds.

Notes:
The apartment is on the first (top) floor, with terraces front and back. Although fine for most people, it is unsuitable for those unable to climb a flight of stairs. Young children will need close parental supervision on both the terraces. A small, walled back garden area at ground floor level provides a pleasant extra space for sunbathing and relaxing. The modern kitchen has excellent cooking facilities and a coffee maker. Both bedrooms and the lounge have powerful ceiling fans to keep them cool in the hot summer months. French doors in the lounge lead onto the back sun terrace with its lovely orchard and Lake Bolsena views. Those in the smaller bedroom open onto a small front balcony. An extending dining table and set of 6 chairs are on the back sun terrace for al fresco summer dining and two large sunblinds provide plenty of shade. No smoking is allowed inside the apartment and for your safety, smoke detectors have been installed. Sorry but we do not accept pets.
