After 20 years spent in the center of Rome I felt better to feel me immersed in the nature, overlooking the village in front of my house on the opposite side of the lake. I enjoy the freedom of space in the garden. I miss Rome very much, but I get it weekly because of my job.
Fiore purchased this Villa in 2002
Why Fiore chose Bracciano
It's a small villa with a small dependance for friends and guests. In a beautiful location, simple and a relaxing place well equipped. That's enough.

Beautiful traditional Italian cottage
Me and my family had a very great week staying in this little cottage in a beautiful town of Bracciano, which is right next to lake with lots of places to eat. Train to Rome is just 10 min walk and takes you about an hour to get to the centre with a return ticket costing only 5 euros. Fiore was a very lovely host who helped us with directions and advised of places to eat as well picked us up from a station which was a great help. And there was 3 beautiful dogs who were very friendly. We had a very good and relaxing holiday thanks to this beautiful and quiet spot. At night you can sit at the back end off pool and enjoy beautiful and romantic night view over lake or look at the stars and maybe be lucky to see a shooting one. Thank you again Fiore for making our holidays better then expected.

Lovely place, wonderful views and ideal location
My husband, daughter and I had a wonderful week's holiday in Bracciano. The villa and pool were lovely, with really good views of the lake and castle. It was ideally located for walking either into town or down to the lake. Fiore made us feel very welcome (as did her lovely dogs!).
Stunning view of the lake
We had an amazing stay, The company of 3 very well behaved and friendly dogs and the hospitality and kindness of Fiore will be remembered for a very long time.
The cottage is comfortable and has everything you need. Our hire car was safe from prangs in a gated driveway and we were able to walk easily
to shops, restaurants, the train station for our overnight stay in Rome and the lake. The drive from the airport is easy and only 3/4 hour away
It was a great pleasure to have you guests at my cottage and I thank you also for your appreciation and sensitivity. You will always be welcome guests if you decide to come back. I send you a warm greeting,
little romatic nest overlooking the lake
we loved this little, simple but well-equipped little cottage in a very pleasant setting: the great view of the lake both from the house and from the swimming pool completely at our disposal, being the only rented property for tourists. A relaxing place, overlooked by the castle of Bracciano and surrounded by the greenery of a beautiful quiet garden and other villas. The owners living in the main villa were discreet and respectful of our privacy, but also kind and helpful for every need. We enjoied the small villages in the surroundings, very characteristic, and the sea about half an hour drive. We only went once in Rome by local train, because the confusion and the heat made us regret the Bracciano cottage. Walking up in the center town is a little tiring when it is hot, better by car. It's a shame that the cottage is not air conditioned, especially at night. We slept quietly with the windows open and the fans. We would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a private pool in a nice and quiet place. And if you do not want to dine, there are numerous restaurants on the lakeshore or in the center of the village, very good and cheap.
Thank you for your kind words. You will be always welcome to my cottage. Arrivederci!
Fabulous villa and pool with stunning views of the lake.
Both myself and husband had an extremely relaxing week in Bracciano. The villa provided an excellent base to visit the local village, relax by the lake or visit the tourist attractions of Rome. The villa had everything you could ask for and the pool was a great way to cool down in the hottest part of the day. The views from the poolside of the lake are exceptional.
Bracciano is not at all touristy, which is nice with fab restaurants and bars. We didn't find it expensive as a two course meal with prosecco cost 29 euros. We visited Bracciano castle where Tom Cruise got married. It has a railway station with excellent links to Rome for approximately 5 euros return.
Thanks to Fiore for her help and advice during our stay. Fiore has 3 dogs, who are extremely friendly and well behaved.
It was very nice to read your words here and even what you wrote on the guest book. And it was very nice to make your acquaintance.
Yes it is true, Bracciano is not equipped for mass tourism, I hope it will never be. And I hope it will continue to be an attraction for tourists like you, gentle and quiet people, looking for an oasis of relaxation, surrounded by natural beauty, far from confusion.
I thank you for choosing my small cottage and for having appreciated it, although it could always be improved. I keep doing this constantly, because I like to know that my guests come home with a good memory.
Great location and views
We had a lovely stay in the very peaceful cottage with a wonderful private pool and outside living space. The property has everything you could need and the advantage of 2 lovely dogs. Fiore was very helpful. Great transport links to Rome €2.60 single.
