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.

Le logement

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 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.

Accès des voyageurs

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!

Échanges avec les voyageurs

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 !

Autres remarques

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.
Enjoy !

What an amazing experience, to live in a real castle. The people in the community could not have been kinder or more welcoming. And Cynthia's home is gorgeous and cozy. Such a great time. Highly recommended.

Réponse de Cynthia :
I am contacting airbnb about this since several things seemed not to work in the system. I only received one message in English before the booking too late to help with and then one more in the New Year after the reservation and to which I responded immediately. I have removed the apartment from the automatic booking system which is clearly fallible. I issued an immediate refund and apology and have offered Mariachiara free accommodation for 4 nights later in the year. It can be seen that my response rate is normally very good indeed. Regrettably I think that several things went wrong here and have done everything I can to make amends. I have not heard back from Mariachiara yet but hope to in the future.

This is a wonderful place to stay, loved sitting by the open door looking out onto the hills. The wine bar and pizzeria just round the corner are both great with friendly and helpful people. It's a nice stroll down to the lake which is gorgeous to swim in. It is fairly busy but people seem calm and quiet so it doesn't feel very touristy or invasive. I didn't have a car but would have loved to be able to see more of the lake and places nearby. But I stayed for a week and didn't get at all bored - you can go to the Vosinii remains and amphitheatre just up the road, and lovely walks in country lanes looking over the lake. And there were a lot of things going on in the town while I was there, live music and events and markets. There was a wonderfully dramatic storm while I was there, that started in the middle of the lake and gradually got closer and closer, and then cleared to a beautiful sunny evening. Cynthia was very good about responding to me quickly and replying to any questions I had while I was there. Lovely big comfy bed. Wish I spoke Italian so I could have talked to Ida next door, who seems lovely. I arrived and left by train to and from Orvieto on Sunday, hoped there'd be a bus but there wasn't and a taxi was €50 each way so I wouldn't recommend travelling on Sunday if you're not driving! Thank you!

The apartment was alright and the location really nice and central, but not in the most touristic/nousy spot of Bolsena, so thats really good! The patio of the house is really nice and the restaurant/pizzeria next door definitely best option in town! Really nice, good price and quality! The apartment is charming, the bed is really good! One downside is that there is no "comfortable" wardrobe and no coat hangers to hang your clothes. Towels prepared for the guests could also be more. The thing that irritated us most was that we had to leave soap, shampoo and toilet paper for the next guests...there was half of a role of toilet paper left for us and only after buying ourselves more toilet paper, we discovered that there was more toilet paper in the (URL HIDDEN) would be a nice detail to have enough toilet paper! ;) The neighbour of Cynthia was a really friendly woman! Bolsena itself is quite touristic, but still charming and the lake (to swim) is just great, nice romantic restaurants and lots of facilities...

Great moment In this tipical house close to the Castle. We appreciate the good ham from the "alimentation" and our glass of wine at the corner of the street. Bolsena is as well A lovely place to stay with the beautifull lake.
