Dear airbnb guests. This place is a very very nice country house in Italy. You feel nicely welkom by the host of the house. We stayed for 10 days and it felt like home. The house is great enough space in and aroud.
The area is great, Rome on a short distance by train! The see is nearby and if you have questions, Leena will guide you. Bracciano is romantic with a beautiful castle. A car is usefull, walking or cycling would be to havy. We will come again! The site about this house is complete. Everything on the airbnb site about the house fits.
Thank you Leena for a beautiful experience . We hope we will meet you again soon,

Wir haben zwei wunderbare Frühlingswochen bei Leena verlebt. Das Haus ist ein Schmuckstück, liebevoll mit eigenen Kunstwerken dekoriert und eine gelungene Mischung aus Alt und Modern in der Einrichtung. Wir hatten unseren eigenen abgegrenzten Garten inmitten des riesigen Grundstücks, was uns Privatsphäre garantierte. Ländliche Umgebung, Nähe zur Kleinstadt Bracciano und Nähe zur Großstadt Rom, dazu eine Gastgeberin, die in jeder Hinsicht freundlich und hilfreich war, besser geht es nicht. Wir kommen gerne wieder.
We spent two wonderful weeks in Leena's house. The hous is a gem, decorated with love and artwork made by Leena herself, the interior a well-made mixture between old and new. We had our own marked-off garden within the very big premises which guaranteed a private atmosphere. Countryside, near the small town of Bracciane and near the big city of Rome further a host who was friendly and helpful in every way, it could not be better. We would like to return.
About the Host, Leena
I am from Finland but live in Italy since many years, married here and with 3 children. We have a big countryhouse and it has a separate "wing" where we have a guestappartment with its own garden and entrance. Our house is beautiful 17th century countryhouse, 2km from Bracciano and from the lake. Rome is very close, 40km, one hour by train. This is a lovely area to stay, a lot to see but you should come with your own car or rent one.
