|Bolsena is a delightful little town overlooking the eastern banks of the lake of the same name, on the Via Cassia 100 kms north of Rome, in the province of Viterbo. This part of Italy is full in history and local traditions, and immersed in rich, and largely unpolluted, natural surroundings. The clear waters of Lake Bolsena belong to the largest lake in Europe with volcanic origins.
Antica Posta stands in the town just outside the walls of the castle, and for a long time it was a postal station for the changing of the horses and a resting place for travellers along the Via Cassia. During the recent renovation it was equipped with the latest modern comforts, whereas the furnishings, original pieces from the beginning of the 1900s, suit the special architecture of the villa.
In the garden next to the villa they have made a private swimming-pool for guests, and on the lawn alongside there is a large gazebo with tables and chairs. In an independent apartment next to the villa live the wardens, who also take care of the cleaning.
The owners have a farm estate close by and produce excellent wines, and you can organize wine-tastings and a visit to the farm. The villa has air-conditioning in the bedrooms, heating, satellite-TV, washing-machine and dishwasher, broadband internet connection.
Bolsena offers lots of recreational opportunities such as sailing, fishing, scuba diving, horse-riding and tennis.
It takes just an hour by car to lots of interesting places such as Montalcino, the sea at Argentario, and Siena and Rome are 140 kms away. The local cuisine is excellent.
