Imagine an ancient grotto surrounded by greenery, renewed with exquisite taste and creativeness, located in a historic Italian village (Ischia di Castro, in Lake Bolsena countryside): this stylish apartment for rent is really a jewel of charm and elegance.
Inhabited since the Neolithic, this grotto stands in the very heart of the Etruscan region (called Tuscia) and features a strategic position, being close to Rome and to many points of interest, such as the old Etruscan settlements of Tarquinia and Vulci, but also the medieval villages of Orvieto and Todi, in Umbria. The entire area is characterized by tuff canyons covered with woods, dotted with unspoiled archaeological sites.
Published on many press releases, this charming apartment is ideal for those who want to escape from mass tourism and are willing to experience a secret Italy.
Literally carved into the rock, this apartment is on 2 levels and can accommodate up to 6 people in 3 double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. Featuring an enchanting artistic touch, it is fresh even in summer, thanks to its unique architecture.
The cream-color living room is wide and enriched by stylish pieces of inspired furniture. Around the fireplace are two sofas with cushions, bright armchairs and coffee tables. The ancient structure of the grotto, still visible, gives to this space a dreamlike atmosphere. Close to the living room is the large kitchen, one of the most pleasant areas of the apartment. Fully equipped, with dish washer and washing machine, it is illuminated by a panoramic French window leading to the terrace and overlooking a green tuff hill. The large table with chairs in the middle is perfect for enjoying Italian food, while the sofa masonry is ideal to relax after lunch. A traditional wood stove completes the space.
On the same level is the first double bedroom, luminous and airy, with a blue-colored king size bed, a tiny desk with chair and two bright windows. The en-suite bathroom, like all the bathrooms of the house, is delightful, with a very large shower and cozy furnishing.
Next to it is a lovely lounge with a sofa and a stair leading to the first floor, where you will find the second double bedroom. Red-colored, featuring a king size bed and Sat TV, it is characterized by cool pieces of industrial furniture and a notable artwork filling up an entire wall. The nice en-suite bathroom has a big shower.
From the living room, another step leads to the third double bedroom, really modeled in the tuff, featuring a comfortable king size bed and an open and romantic en-suite bathroom with shower.
This Lake Bolsena accommodation for rent has a beautiful panoramic terrace facing the kitchen. Furnished with a long sofa masonry and a vintage coffee table, is the ideal place to drink a glass of wine at sunset, when the green hill in front of the house becomes flushed with red.
Final cleaning not included. At the end of your stay you will pay an extra fee for the final cleaning of the apartment. The coast will be 8 € per hour, that can be paid in cash directly to the cleaning lady (the amount of hours needed will depend on the condition of the house).
La maison est fantastique et très confortable. Il y a une terrasse très calme, parfaite pour se détendre et prendre l'apéro. Le village est très authentique et pas touristique, avec des petits commerces et bons restaurants. Carolina, notre hôte, nous a très bien accueillie, et a été disponible toute la semaine pour répondre a toutes nos questions et nous donner ses petites adresses. Des vacances inoubliables !
