Casa Poiana is set in just the perfect spot. It is in the countryside and totally private, with the most awesome view you can imagine: Oaks and olive groves interrupt rows of grape vines meandering down the hillside to the lake shore. The house is on a hillside above the medieval town of Bolsena, just where the regions of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio meet. The area is known to locals as Tuscia, after the ancient Etruscans who populated the area before the Romans.
The house has a master bedroom with a dressing room and an en-suite bathroom, a large kitchen / living room, which opens out onto the terrace and garden, a bedroom with twin beds, a main bathroom with bathtub and a lounge with fireplace. The ceilings are made of terracotta with large chestnut beams. All the rooms have separate exits onto the terraces and the garden surrounding the house and the use of glass is maximised to take full advantage of the truly superb views.
The house is a 5 minute drive to Bolsena town, which is rich in history, pageantry and of course, food. There is pretty much everything you need in the town. The lake is also 5 minutes by car and you can windsurf, sail, waterski and swim. If you are more of a cultural bent, you can explore the literally hundreds of cultural sites, from Roman and Etruscan ruins to medieval hilltop towns and fortresses.
The house is also perfect for the winter months as we have installed under-floor heating and thermostats throughout (an extra cost for heating is levied when the system is in operation) and the lake views can be even more impressive in winter.
