À propos de ce logement
Charming apartment in Bolsena's lovely Medieval Castello. Country views. Lake and beach less than 10 minutes walk. Stunning location. Superb lake views nearby. Castle 50 yards. Free parking 3 mins walk away.*Free wifi* 45 seconds away at quiet and friendly bar pizzeria 8.00am till midnight. The tranquil Castello has every facility, and a very short stroll away is a variety of shops and restaurants. The entire area is of astonishing ancient historical interest and of beauty.
The apartment door is reached by a flight of steps where you enter into a good sized kitchen with a table and chairs. Beyond is a charming living room with a very good double bed settee, chairs, glass coffee table and writing desk. A small bathroom has WC shower and bidet. A spiral staircase leads to a mezzanine bedroom with a large and comfortable new double bed. The kitchen and high bedroom window have views onto the Lazzio countryside.
For winter there a wonderfully warm log stove in the living room. Logs are located under the outside stairs. The stove heats the whole house and will burn till about 5.am. from midnight. There is a halogen electric heater for the early morning start. There is a good high tog double duvet for the bed.
The space is generously and sensibly for two.
Occasionally the double bed settee downstairs may be used, and there is a single folding bed. Use of these would be by special arrangement.

Giving onto a secluded pretty little communal courtyard, the apartment is totally private and self contained.
Don't forget, free Wi Fi is available just seconds around the corner at the quiet bar just 60 paces away! They are open 8.00 till midnight. Their coffee is really good. The restaurant side may look empty sometimes. Don't be put off, their evening Pizzas are truly exceptional and the staff are great. It's just not so touristic which is a plus!

I am always on hand for help advice from the UK though thanks to the friendliness and convenience of the Castello you're unlikely to need me other than to say glad to meet you !
Whilst here is no washing machine at present there is a very good pulley washing line from the kitchen window. To date I have happily hand washed clothes either in the kitchen sink by the window or in the ancient cisterna next door through the arch into which which fresh spring water gushes all day long. Any of the ladies of the Castello will give advice on its use.
Have a torch handy. There are very occasional power cuts in a thunderstorm.
Finally, general using things are stocked up when I go out there and I will leave plenty for use by subsequent guests. The custom with self catering is normally for guests to keep levels topped up at very low cost. I have ticked amenities because I do provide bedding and towels for use at the house. If the previous guests were unable to maintain levels, all of these items are obtained inexpensively at the Alimentare just 1 minute away.
Guests to be 25 years old or above.
Please do not tie the outer door to the balcony with wire it destroys the door handle.
Whilst a cleaning fee is charged I pay and extra E15 to top this up. Please leave the house in a reasonable state of cleanliness.
Bin bags are provided for the kitchen bins. Please use them and **please dispose of your rubbish the night before you leave at the nearby recycler** close to the church. It is open in the evenings 18.00 - 22.00.
Please do not relocate the leads at the electric points, since there are three different kinds of sockets.
My neighbours are all very helpful and friendly in the Castello please treasure these friendships as I do.
No smoking in the house.
Please be gentle with the fly screens.
Give the kitchen table some more history of happy evenings and great conversation.
Thank you so much to the guests who do these things already.
Enjoy!! And welcome to Bolsena!
