Charming House

  • 5 of 5

We found this charming house to be very comfortable and nicely located. We could walk to everything. The kitchen and bathroom were well appointed and user friendly. Our host was very helpful and kind. It was a relaxing, very enjoyable visit. We highly recommend it!

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

It wouldn't let me set the date that far back. We stayed in August 2012 before returning to the US. My husband and 3 girls were more than well taken care of during our stay in Italy. I really, really loved feeling like an "authentic" Italian by doing laundry by hand and hanging it on the roof to dry! We bought fans for the rooms and slept with the windows open as the air was a bit humid and warm. The owners treated us to a wonderful dinner at a well known pizza place in Bracciano before we left. If you're looking for an amazing place to stay that isn't far from transit systems that get you to Rome, I highly suggest this place!

My husband and I just spent a week in this lovely apartment. It has all of the amenities you could want ... plus a fabulous roof top deck that over looks Lake Bracciano. We spent every night sitting up there watching the beautiful sunset with a glass of wine. During our visit to Bracciano, we took a day trip to Rome, a day trip to Anguillara, a boat tour of the lake, and toured the wonderful castle that is right next to this apartment. There is also a cozy and delicious restaurant right around the corner - Hug ... It's a must try place! Bracciano is a quiet little Italian town that everyone should visit at least once ... and, you won't be disappointed if you stay in this apartment while there. We had a wonderful experience from start to finish.

Es war ein toller Urlaub

  • 4 of 5

Eine sehr schönes Haus mitten im Ort, mit den typischen italienischen Flair, fernab des Autoverkehrs.

Von der Terrasse hat man einen tollen Blick auf den See und den Ort.

Tolle Restaurants im Ort und ein kurzer Weg bis zum Bahnhof um Rom mit den Zug zu erreichen.

Soggiorno a Bracciano

Il borgo mediaevale dove e' situato l'immobile e' stupendo pero' ci sono alcuni dettagli che devono essere comunicati meglio.

L'immobile e' in pieno centro storico ,non raggiungibile dall'auto , per cui i bagagli devono essere trasportati a mano per circa 200 metri , in salita e sul ciottolato.

L' ingresso della casa e' raggiungibile tramite una scala esterna in muratura stretta e ripida,ingresso dell'appartamento e' stretto e il portone si apre con difficolta' poco adatto a persone anziane o in sovrappeso.

L' appartamento e' su due piani ,poco funzionale in quanto la cucina e al piano superiore accessibile da scala in legno alquanto ripida,mentre per la camera bisogna scendere due scalini, il terrazzo e' raggiungibile sola da una scala a chiocciola , pero' la veduta e' strepitosa, sul lago.

I locali sono poco illuminati,e anche con le finestre aperte c'e' poca luce, e non molto puliti, ma forse siamo stati sfortunati noi.

Penso sia piu' adatto a turisti stranieri,che italiani

Dato due stelle ,ma solo per il borgo.

Soggiornato a ottobre 2015

Alles wie erhofft ...

  • 5 of 5

Auch wenn unser Aufenthalt nur kurz war:

Es ist genau so, wie man sich eine sehr schöne Unterkunft mitten in der Altstadt vorstellt.

Gloria ist eine wunderbare Gastgeberin:

immer ansprechbar und hilfsbereit (insbesondere beim Gepäcktransport)
