Quietly situated country house with olive grove and view of Lake Bolsena
Surrounded by an old organic olive grove, this two-storey country house is situated in a splendid position overlooking Lake Bolsena. The whole house is equipped with handmade terracotta floors and lovingly designed by a couple of artists. Each floor forms a generous living unit and comprises 110 m² living space each. In addition, each of the two floors has a south-facing portico of 60 m² from which one can enjoy the view. On the ground floor you can enter the large living room with fireplace or the kitchen with dining room from the portico. At the back there are two bedrooms, a bathroom and a toilet. An outside staircase leads to the upper portico with a splendid view of the lake and from there to the upper apartment, which has the same layout as the ground floor apartment (living room with fireplace, kitchen with dining room, two bedrooms, one bathroom, one toilet). The house is situated in the middle of old olive groves and vineyards in the natural park of Lake Bolsena. The sunny or tree-shaded beaches and shores of the nearby lake can be reached on foot. Bolsena is situated in the heart of Etruria on the lake of the same name. The lake of Bolsena is the largest lake of volcanic origin in Italy and has unusually clean water. The sea eel, an indicator of the highest water quality, thrives here splendidly and is the highlight of the varied local fish cuisine. Bolsena itself is dominated by the 13th century Monaldeschi Castle and has a rich Etruscan, Roman and Christian history. The towns of Montefiascone (15 km), Orvieto and Viterbo (25 km each) are in the immediate vicinity. The sea (Montalto Marina 50 km) and Rome (100 km) are easy to reach.
