In the heart of Tuscia, Latium's Etruscan region, perched on a hilltop of Lake Bolsena on the border of Tuscany-Umbria, stands this elegant villa of the late 19th century (about 287 sq mt) with swimming pool and landscaped garden, surrounded by 4.5ha land of meadow, olive trees and forest. Set on an isolated and panoramic position, at a few kms from the services and swimming shores of the lake, this 3-level villa is part of the Maremma landscape, land of archaeological sites and wine/food tasting routes and art villages such as Orvieto, Pitigliano, Viterbo and Civita di Bagnoregio. Being in a strategic position, the property is also at easy reach to the Tuscan beaches of Capalbio and Monte Argentario.

The entrance avenue frames the villa with lines of cypress trees, a suggestive perspective that leads to an heavenly surroundings. A neat manicured garden, with various areas on different levels, defined by steps and walls in local tufo stone and neatly trimmed hedges: the classy front court with secular oak tree; the salt water pool of travertine infinity edge (12x4m) in its lawn surround, overhanging the valley like a flying carpet; an enchanting green courtyard with pergolas and flowery borders, on the lower level of the house.
Completely restored at the highest standards, retaining original features where possible or replacing them with hand made, artisan materials, the villa's innately rustic features are enhanced by a mix of modern and antique fittings. The the soft honey tone and the sage colored shutters of the facades perfectly blend with the contemporary style of the hand-made tiles floors, the high chestnut beamed ceilings and travertine marble bathrooms; the made-to-measure kitchen, equipped with all mod-cons, meets the dining room through a huge antique stone arch from the original structure. Specularly, two sitting rooms with chimney are characterized by triple exposure with two french windows. Linking indoor and outdoor living, a stunning loggia runs the length of the house, forming al fresco living and dining ‘rooms', from which to enjoy the uninterrupted views. Steps lead down from here to the pool area and to a games room and convenient shower room on the lower level.
Upstairs is reached via the central vaulted stairs. The master bedroom has double aspect windows, as does the ensuite bath and shower room. Two more bedrooms, and a shower room complete the first floor accommodation. On the attic, there are a further rooms, fabulous for children, bathroom with shower and plenty of storage spaces.
Ideal holiday place for friends and family, the property enjoys exceptional goodwill in luxury rentals and it has been featured in the Times newspaper as one of the top villas in Italy to rent.
