Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

For us, this was the perfect location and property. This tastefully restored farmhouse is situated in its own grounds in a beautiful location.

On arrival, we were met by Rossana, who speaks excellent English . The owner had kindly left a very welcome "Welcome pack" and Rossana had put together a comprehensive pack of interesting places to visit.

The house is a good size and very well maintained;the pool is wonderful;outside areas are fully furnished and the views are spectacular.

There is plenty to see and do in the area - we particularly enjoyed visits to Viterbo, the hot springs,nearby lakes and the coast.

We recieved excellent service from Rossana and would recommend this property to anyone who enjoys a peaceful and relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings.

So beautiful and never so relaxed!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at La Casa Bella Vista. The landscaping is beautiful and the pool is such a respite from the heat of the afternoon. We were able to put aside all the stresses of work and really enjoy our vacation; my husband has never sleot so well! In addition to enjoying the nearby towns (particularly Casperia and Calcata), we were able to easily travel into Rome via the train and make our way around the city with the all day ticket we purchased in Stimigliano.

We can't wait to go back!
