В пятером мы провели четыре дня в Браччано. Это часть большого дома Клаудии с просторной террасой и местом для парковки автомобиля. Кухня оснащена всем необходимым инвентарем. Клаудия очень гостеприимная и приветливая женщина. Никакого стеснения или недостатка мы не испытывали.
We had a lovely time staying at Claudia's house. It was spacious and cool, the back patio was lovely to use. It is so quiet, no car noises or business. A nice big kitchen and very big dining table, we even had another family over for a meal. The lake and castle at Bracciano are beautiful. Definitely worth attention of their own, and about an hour's drive to get into Rome to sight see there. Locked up parking for the car.
We had a wonderful stay in Claudia's house. She was an amazing host, very knowledgable of the area and gave sound advice as to where to go.
Perfect place to stay with children. Train station 5 minutes away and 1 hour to the Colosseum. The lake was warm and perfect for swimming for the afternoon. The beach 40 minutes away and the necropolis only 20 minutes. The kids loved them. Finished our stay off with a trip to the stone monsters. All recommended by Claudia. Thanks for a wonderful time, great house, great facilities, fond memories.
Claudia is such a wonderful person, living in an amazing place near Bracciano lake! During our stay (1 month in september) she was constantly helpful and discreet, knowing exactly how to make us feel like home. Many times she brang us fresh fruits and herbs from the garden to enjoy our meals!
Everything was incredibly clean and spacious in the house. The biallety coffee machine was a dream. The wifi connection was fast and flawless.
And the magic of the region.... Horses and farms a few meters from the house, genuine romantic ruins of monterano 5 (website hidden) car...the lake with its pure water, the sea and the etruscan sites nearby, everything is close at hand!
Want to enjoy your time rather than rush and struggle through crowded places? Don't hesitate, choose Claudia's place!
And btw, rome is 35 minutes away by train or car...
We are very pleased with stay in Claudia's house in Bracciano. House is nice and well equipped. In the neibourhood there is a supermarket. Claudia is very nice and helpful person. She offered us picking up to lake and showed us interesting places to see. It was very nice to find herbs, fruit, sweets on the table on our terrace after returning from the beach in the evening. Thank you Claudia!
Very friendly and amenable. Clean flat with space for car. In a nice quiet area away from the hustle and bustle of the centre of Bracciano but not too far away to get to.
