Villa with big garden and Lake view

Villa - Entire home/apt · Strada Vicinale del Riposo, Bracciano, Lazio 00062, Italy

Perfect getaway for families or friends traveling together. Enjoy the beauty of Rome and come home to an oasis of silence and nature with your own pool, garden and gorgeous view!

The Space

This is a nice summer house, only about 35 km north of Rome, located in the beautiful medieval (and somewhat famous) town of Bracciano. Ideal for a family with kids (big or small!), a group of friends, or people looking for a quiet spot... with a beautiful view of the lake, private pool (5x12 meters) and big garden!
We are situated only 15 minutes by foot from the center of town (= train station with hourly trains to Rome) and less than 10 minutes from the lake. (by foot!). So you can leave your car in the enclosed garden.
The lake has exceptional clean water (drinking quality provision intended for Rome!)
No motor boats have been allowed on the lake for decades. It's a volcanic lake with two othercharming medieval towns on the shore, lots of restaurants offering regional specialties, etc.
The house consists of 2 bedrooms (one rather tiny, but with two beds), two bathrooms (the bigger one with tub, the smaller one with shower), a large living room (48 square meters with open fireplace), a small but fully furnished kitchen, an inner courtyard/patio (16 square meters - you can even sleep there on hot summer nights! and accessible from all rooms of the house. The house can sleep up to 6 adults (2 in the living room). The flooring has just had a makeover and has now got a wooden floor in the living room and bedrooms.
We have a 4 year old daughter so it's child-friendly and books and toys are available (as well as garden furniture, swing and hammock).
The layout of the house is very convenient for couples traveling together as both bedrooms grant privacy. We have return guests (one couple in their 70s) who have been coming for over 20 years!
We live simply but beautifully!
The town of Bracciano has got an important medieval castle and a gorgeous old city center with magnificent views towards the lake. Trains to Rome run every 30-60 minutes and the price both ways including public transportation inside Rome (very convenient!!) is 6 E only. It takes about 1 hour to get to the city center of Rome.

Our house is situated between the town of Bracciano and the lake-- about a 15 minute's walk to the train station, 10 minutes to the lake, and there's private and safe parking on our property. The garden has 1600 square meters and is completely closed in by a fence planted with oleander and laurel.

The Neighborhood

We are situated right below the Castle and the Lake of Bracciano. (look on (website hidden) for castello di Bracciano - it's really impressive!) The town (ca. 12.000 inhabitants) has all you might need-- shops, restaurants and in the summer month some happenings like nice (free) concerts, theater etc,The train ride to Rome takes about one hour and the ticket is 2,30 Euro one way. Trains run hourly, sometimes twice an hour, so you don't need to take your car to Rome, which is very convenient! The world famous Etruscan excavations of Cerveteri are within an hour's drive, as well as the enchanting towns of Nepi, Viterbo, Sutri and many others who have not yet been discovered by mass tourism. Tarquinia and others Etruscan towns are also within relatively easy reach. You can equally drive to the resorts on the Mediterrean beach in less than an hour, if you want a change from swimming in the lake.
If you arrive by plane, you can rent a car either at Fiumicino Airport or in our area.
There are lots of other things in the area to discover-- a vast forest (with 'adventure playground' for older children), horseback riding, even rock climbing, you won't get tired of it!

  • We had a very nice holliday in Lauras house, nice pool and clean was it too. We loved the wiew over the lake, and the shout cut to the town was qvickly, and the best pizza at the pizzaria to. Laura was VERY helpfull, and was ready on mail all day for good advices.

  • Laura was a lovely host, she met us at the train station, took us for a walk through town and pointed out places of interest on the way to her home. We loved her backyard and the pool was fantastic on the hot days. She accommodated my coeliac disease well and even bought me gluten free pasta to take to her chef friends restaurant. If you visit make sure you bring a flashlight as the walk down the hill at night back to Laura's house is exceptionally dark.

    Grazie tanto Laura!!

  • Laura's Place is great! They have a wonderful lake view, and the villa is perfectly located just halfway between the lake and the picturesque town-- both are less than 15 minutes by foot. Trains to Rome are frequent and convenient. The room is rather small but quite comfortable, and the bathroom was large and clean. Although Laura and her family liven the place, we had lots of privacy. Recommend!

    June 2012
  • Lovely house with a stunning view of the lake, 15 min. walk from the train station. Laura was great at organising our stay and anticipating requests. Recommended!

    May 2012
  • Our stay in Bracciano at Laura's house was great! She has a really cool house with an amazing view, and we enjoyed spending the day just relaxing by the lake and pool. The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable. Laura, her partner Roberto, and their daughter were all amazing! We wish we could have stayed there longer.

  • A great relaxing location a short train ride out of Rome. They were very hospitable and knowledgeable about what to see and how to get there. The pool was a welcome relief after a hot day in Rome.
