Via Capobianco, 94 - MONTEFIASCONE (VT)
In the heart of the Tuscia, nestling on the border of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio, lies Montefiascone, an ancient medieval town located on the edges of the beautiful Bolsena Lake, the largest volcanic lake in Europe.
The lake lies just 8km away from the house and occupies the crater of an extinct volcano. Here you can relax along it’s shores, enjoy a meal at one of the many restaurants, swim in the warm crystal clear waters or take part in many water sports. Along its shores lie the enchanting villages of Marta, Capodimonte and the sophisticated lakeside of Bolsena.
Montefiascone itself is not without charm and character. It commands an envious position with stunning views over the lake. You may find a wide range of local amenities here including shops, supermarkets and restaurants. In summer the annual wine festival transforms the town with a series of events and historical pageants, enticing visitors to sample wine, olive oil and local produce.
Accommodation; 2 km outside Montefiascone is situated a newly constructed Farmhouse, CAPOBIANCO. Built in the traditional rural Italian style of stone and chestnut wood. High quality materials have been used throughout with added features created for modern living. It is situated on a hill and provides unrestricted views of the Cimini mountains and beautiful rolling countryside towards the papal city of Viterbo. Away from the mass tourism of Tuscany lies this oasis of peace and tranquillity.
Farmhouse Capobianco is an impressive and spacious building which can accommodate a maximum of eight people. The house has been divided into self-contained apartments containing a kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms. These can accommodate couples, groups or families.
Locality; Its location is ideal for exploring a rich variety of fascinating historical, geographical and cultural features. The choice of sightseeing opportunities are overwhelming. Visit the fabulous gardens of Villa Lante or Palazzo Farnese in Caprarola, the fascinating Parco dei Mostri in Bomarzo and Civita di Bagnoregio (a dying city). The necropolis and sea beaches of Tarquinia are only a short distance away. Soak away the stresses and strains of modern life in one of the many free hot springs that dot the area.
For those who crave the excitement, buzz and style of Italian cities, Viterbo is only 15 minutes away and Orvieto 20 minutes. The larger cities of Rome, Perugia, Assissi, Siena and Florence are all within easy reach by car, train or coach.
