There are many activies easily accessible from Il Montesole, some of these include sailing lessons on the Bolsena lake, horse riding in the nearby village called Porano, clay pigeon shooting, and walking. The property includes a covered parking for the guests use.

The owner’s villa is a few hundred meters away through the trees from Il Montesole. He is a doctor and will be happy to provide you with all the information you require about the area.

Vrijwel alles! Allereerst de prachtige reis erheen langs Orvieto, het warme onthaal door de eigenaars, het hoogwaardig ingerichte appartement met waterval douche, het aankomstpakket, de prachtige omgeving (nabij grens Toscanae/Umbrie/Lazio) met vele bezienswaardigheden, het grote zwembad dat goed schoon werd gehouden. Het taartje op de laatste avond. De tuin met de grote oude boom en het bankje eronder met uitzicht over Umbrie voor een rustig moment...ik wil zo weer terug!

Er is voor ons slechts 1 minpuntje geweest en dat was dat naar onze smaak de matrassen te zacht waren...
Local attractions Favoriete restaurant: met kop en schouders La Fontana in Montefiascone, vooral de pasta van het huis! Verdere bezienswaardigheden: Orvieto, prachtig, prachtig. Civita di Bagnoregio voor het prachtige uitzicht, Montefiascone voor de wijn, restarant en ligging, meer van Bolsena en omgeving
