Grote villa met zwembad, in een groot park met prachtige panorama. Het park van 6000m ² wordt gevormd door eeuwenoude eiken, het klimaat op de heuvel is bijzonder. Wanneer de hitte in Orvieto en Rome zwoele is, op deze plaats, tot 600 meter boven de zeespiegel, in de namiddag, is er altijd de wind (de boeren van de plaats noemen dit 'zeebries'). 4 km van Bagnoregio (Civita di Bagnoregio) beroemd in de wereld. 6 km van het meer van Bolsena. 15 km van Orvieto met het station en de snelweg, Rome - Florence - Orvieto uitgang.
As a family of 4 (kids 10 & 7) we enjoyed 2 weeks of total privacy surrounded by the enormous natural (forest-) garden on a hill overlooking lake Bolsena, with local wildlife and a huge swimming pool. There is plenty to explore in the area, from ancient ruins to old cities and with lake Bolsena just 10 mins drive away, there is ample opportunity for swimming and very reasonably priced boat hire to enjoy. The area is not vastly spoilt and overrun with tourists giving it a very comfortable local feel. The owner is extremely hospitable, makes a delicious wine and resolved any (minor) issues without a problem. The house itself is large and comfortable and although the kitchen is a bit small and could do with a little TLC it is adequately equipped. The bed rooms and bath rooms are very nice, spacious and clean. The access to the sleeping quarters is through an outside staircase covered by the porch, so with small kids a baby-phone would be recommended. We would certainly recommend this property for a real Italian escape.

Be careful. The website is very misleading. It refers to "total privacy" and to " the villa is rented entirely to a single family". We arrived to find the house separated into 2 by a flimsy partition and the main bedroom separated from the other half of the house by an internal door. There was another family in the other half of the house, with noisy dog and baby. They were not that noisy. They were just SO close, we could hear everything they did.
VERY unsatisfactory. VERY misleading. There was nothing in the owner's emails to suggest the house was divided into 2 or that we were renting only half the house. There were in fact 2 pools. One for each part of the house. This is a permanent set up and the web site should be changed.
If you are looking for peace and quiet and privacy, this is not the place.
Nice setting. Shame!
We had a wonderful time in this large rustic villa. We were a mixed party of 14 -family and friends, adults, teenagers and children. We had wonderful meals on the large table outside, visited the many lovely hill towns including Bagnoregio, Bolsena and Orvieto and particularly enjoyed the crystal clear and unspoilt Lake Bolsena, visiting it almost every day for superb swimming. We also enjoyed the pool which was large and clean and quite warm. Gian Franco was very friendly and helpful and although the wifi was not working for half of our time there, he did everything he could to fix it by the time we left. He also was very generous with his gifts of his own home produced wine. There was plenty of space for our party to sleep in great comfort. We mostly did our own cooking and produced lovely meals from the local produce (I would recommend the Simply supermarket in nearby Bagnoregio over Pennys inMontefiascone which has no deli counter. The kitchen could have been a little better equipped, and the hob was a bit difficult to light, but all in all, a wonderful place to stay. I would love to come again!
Me and my family in total a party of 11 have just returned from a great week at this Villa. The Villa is perfectly situated for touring places like Assisi, Gubbio, Viterbo, Siena, lago di Bolsena, Civita di Bagnoreggio....all places we visited and renowned for their history,architecture not to mention the great Cafe bars all very reasonably priced .....
The villa itself was excellent in providing space, calm quiet and all the amenities we needed. A well equipped kitchen provided all that was needed for cooking meals and breakfast. A Nicely decorated living area was great to sit and read or watch TV. The sleeping space was excellent, comfortable beds and bedrooms with superb views. The pool provided relaxation after a day out and great fun for the children and teens aged 11 to 17 years as well as for the adults young at heart irrespective of age. Our boys had plenty of space to play in the lovely grounds surrounding the house as well as to observe nature in the form of a variety of beetles, spiders, grasshoppers who very often became our room mates!!A reasonably sized food store only 4 kms down the road was convenient for shopping.
Overall it was a great week ...a mixture of sight seeing and relaxing in an unspoilt rural setting. Mr Gianfranco, the owner, was always very helpful and came over often to see if we needed anything and make sure our stay was going well.
I would certainly recommend this property for a great relaxing holiday in a lovely area that has easy access to both Umbria and Tuscany regions...but make sure to have a car for sightseeing .....Its an easy drive from Rome Fiumicino.
and Thanks for the wine Mr Gianfranco...very good!!
This house is great for large knockabout families. Nothing precious to worry about and plenty of room both inside the house and out to lounge around in.
The view from the garden is fantastic and it is lovely to be in such a quiet and rural location. But in August take your mosquito repellent and buy some Napis gel for after bites.
The drive up to the property is only half concreted and being a bit steep and irregular you have to be careful not to damage the underside of your car. Hopefully he will tarmac the whole drive soon to stop that problem.
The pool was too cold for larking around in so we swam in the lake instead which was no problem as only 15 minutes drive away and not crowded, and of course, inland water not salty or tidal sea water. But it was a bit of a waste of a pool.
The lake is wonderful for swimming, Bolseno very attractive and easy to enjoy and a trip to Civita and Orvieto well worth it - fantastic medieval street after street, I was blown away by them.
We also visited the hot springs - they were as hot as a bath!
We loved the area and the house, if not the pool, were perfect for two families and their friends.
В этом доме очень просторно, легко дышать и двигаться, не натыкаясь на углы и мебель. В нем есть все для комфортного проживания и совершенно отсутствует «гламур» – это одно из главных достоинств «Colle delle Rose». Аркада, бесконечной галереи, увита благоухающими розами. Бассейн чистится регулярно. Дров для камина много. По газону, вековым дубам и даже дверным решеткам скачет множество белок. Уединение полнейшее. Сидя в кресле на газоне или на диване в доме ты любуешся видом на озеро Bolsena и кажется, что ты занят важным делом. И конечно же, необыкновенное очарование этому месту и ощущение, что тебя тут любят придает хозяин . Он появлялся то на своем стареньком «Merce», то на древнем «BMW» с охапкой бутылок прекрасного молодого вина.
И белое и красное – великолепно. Oн привозил нам оливковое масло. Рисовал подробный план, как проехать к ферме «Mozzarella Buffalo». Рассказывал у кого, какие продукты покупать на рынке. Он очень мил и ненавязчиво заботлив.
Наше трех недельное пребывание было райским.
This is a charming and spacious house where is easy to breathe and easy to move about without bumping into corners or furniture. Everything is here for comfortable living and without a bit of “glamour”, thank heavens; that is one of "Colle delle Rose’s" great achievements. Instead the guest finds arcades and galleries perfumed with roses. The swimming pool sparkles with regular care. The fireplace is outfitted with ample wood. Century-old oaks and a latticed gate decorate the lawn, offering playgrounds to the many squirrels that play endless games to delight the guest. Pure, glorious solitude. From a chair on the lawn or a divan in the house there is a view of Lake Bolsena, so idyllic that the visitor can easily imagine himself to be engaged in important business.
Of course, not the least of the charm of this lovely oasis is the charm of the proprietor, a gentleman who exudes affection for his guests. He appears in his old Mercedes or his equally antique BMW with a cooled bottle of young wine, perfect whether red or white, that he and his friend have made themselves. The rich olive oil he brings comes from yet another friend. Want to add some mozzarella buffalo to your lunch? He will draw you a detailed map to the farm. He’ll tell you who has the best crops and goods in the local market. He is very sweet and unintrusively attentive. Our three weeks in this villa were days in paradise.
