Comfortable and well appointed with easy access to local amenities.
Views from the pool area of lake Bolsena excellent.
Caretakers of the property were very helpful and friendly.
The kitchen could have been a little better equipped.
Would come back again.
Very Pleasant housse with pool
Very pleasant and well equiped house with large pool in a smala and typical village.
calm and relaxing holiday
This is a well appointed and clean property in a small very quiet town. Lake Bolsena is close by with its lovely beaches and towns. Be aware the pool is up a flight of spiral stairs from the house so maybe not best for very young kids, otherwise a nice place to stay.
Perfect house with lost of facilities
We Were Very happy in Gradoli .it's was a Nice house with a lost of facilities,a clean skimming pool and a perfect service.a recommedation for Every family.
Clean and correct
The agency is very correct and their follow-up is splendid and extremely reliable. The description they gave us entirely reflects what we received. The villa was impeccably clean (thank you Mrs. Yassine!) and was in extremely good state. The neighbourhood was peaceful, green, all we could wish for. Florence, Rome, Spoleto,... in reachable distance. Only 2 remarks: the outdoor table is a bit small for 5 and Italian wifi is more limited than we are used to in our home country. But these are details hardly worth mentioning!
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.
