The Space

The house is located in Marta, a charming town on Lake Bolsena. It is built on the remains of a '500 fortress and offers a superb view of the lake. Is near the tower.

The 100 sq.m are divided between a ground floor (with lounge/living room with fireplace, kitchenette, dining area, bathroom, small terrace with table and chairs overlooking the hills of Marta); a spiral staircase leads to the upper floor with one double bedroom with view of the lake, two single bedrooms with view of the hills, one toilet with shower.

All ceilings have wooden beams.

Strategically located in the area called Tuscia (in the Lazio region) which shares borders with Tuscany and Umbria, Marta is locaed (URL HIDDEN) from medioeval town Viterbo; numerous other hitorical sites are at an ideal distance for one-day excursions.

Swimming in the lake is possible from spring to autumn and beaches such as Montefiascone, Gradole and Bolsena have quite a number of small restaurants and trattoria which offer excellent food and wine.
Boat excursions are organized from Montefiascone to the Bisentine Island, famous for its Farnese Palace which was built by XVI century architect Antonio da Sangallo.

For those who are fans of thermal tourism, the Terme dei Papi, some 20 min. drive from Viterbo, are a real treat. More spas are located in the province of Siena, some 40/45 min. drive from Marta (Bagno Vignoni, San Filippo Bagni, S. Casciano dei Bagni). The landscape in that region is superb.

Numerous other excursions can be organized depending on whether you are interest in art or Italian food specialties. In the Lazio region special mention deserve BAGNOREGIO, perched on a high tuff cliff;TUSCANIA, famous Etruscan town which boasts two beautiful Romanesque churches (S. Pietro and S Maria Maggiore); VULCI, another archaeological site located close to a famous Etruscun necropolis. Close by is a small lake immortalized in films by directors suh as Wim Wender and Zeffirell. You cannot miss ORVIETO, in the Umbria region, with its famous gothic cathedral.

Finally, if you decide to stretch out to the Tirreno Sea, do not miss the Tuscan Maremma, the natural Reserves of Lake Burano and Capalbio, all a real treat.

You will find additional information on the area as welll as a list of my preferred restaurants, selected for their good quality/price value.
