About the property

Apartment in Tuscania, Northern Lazio - Close To Tuscany/Umbria And Coastal Beaches

Tuscania is a walled medieval town in Northern Lazio, on the border of Tuscany and Umbria. Tourists visit the town to look at Etruscan tombs, medieval and renaissance architecture, or to sample the excellent local cuisine. Stay locally and soak up the sunshine by Tuscania's 25m outdoor pool, or relax in the park. Alternatively, drive to hilltop towns, hot springs, vineyards or nearby lakes. www.tuscanianholiday.com

About The Owner

Initially my wife and I were looking for an apartment in Tuscany but they were very expensive and the towns there were busy with tourists. The Tuscia (Northern Lazio) though was less developed but to our mind just as beautiful. The international school Lorenzo de’Medici (offers courses on Italian language, history and culture) has recently opened a branch in Tuscania to offer an authentic experience of Italian culture to its students and that makes sense why once you have been there. We now have a young family and the kids enjoy staying here as much as we do.

Why The Owner chose Tuscania

We've had the place for years now and are still discovering new things. When the weather is hot it is nice to go to the beach either at Lake Bolsena or at the coast. It is a good base to get to places like Orvieto in Umbria or into Tuscany, places like Scansano (where Morellino wine comes from) or Partigliano (the cliff-top town). Although we still enjoy spending time actually in Tuscania. There are plenty of little café/bars and restaurants, as well as an Etruscan museum and an open-air swimming pool. And the views from the park across the Etruscan valley of St Peter’s church are stunning. Most of all we just enjoy being immersed in a different culture and language.

What makes this apartment unique

The place is easy to get to and connected by main routes. From Rome it is just over an hours drive. To get the full benefit out of a holiday in the area you need to hire a car. It is a short drive to the beach – either at Lake Bolsena or the coast (where there are various beaches such as Pescia Romana). Parking in Tuscania it quite easy. Generally you can park a minute or so away from the apartment.

Wonderful apartment, perfect location- highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We (my husband and 2 small children) stayed here for a couple of weeks in August, and had a terrific holiday. The apartment was very clean, and charming, with everything we required. It is situated in the medieval part of the town, which is just magical, and with loads to do nearby (including the beach)- although we would also have been happy simply to enjoy the town and take in the wonderful atmosphere for the whole 2 weeks. The apartment is situated in a courtyard with a small Roman fountain on the wall. It was so peaceful and quiet, yet with lovely cafes and shops a stone's throw away. Also, there were several lovely restaurants in the town. We are definitely planning to return, and will book early to ensure we stay here again!

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Just a little over an hour from Rome you can find this hidden pearl of a place called Tuscania. We rented the appartment for 5 nights. It is a spacious 2-bedroom apartment, well equipped, with a full kitchen and a cozy back yard. We got the "true Italian experience" living in the apartment, that has an excellent location inside the old city walls! Good variety of restaurants and local shops nearby! Wonderfull stay!

Molto scarsa

  • 1 of 5

Purtroppo la recensione e' pessima. La sera del nostro arrivo abbiamo scoperto che tutte le lenzuola della casa era evidentemente usate e sporche. Fortunatamente in casa c'era la lavatrice e abbiamo potuto rimediare per le restanti notti. Tutta la casa era molto sporca, frigorifero imbarazzante, divani lerci, attrezzi da cucina messi male. Due pentole e una padella vecchie e in compenso tantissimi patti e tazze.

Nelle camere due appendiabiti in plastica. Bagno grande e accogliente ma sporco e con lo scarico del water che spruzzava acqua ovunque.

Peccato, la casa e' spaziosa e luminosa e posizionata benissimo, ma ha bisogno di una ripulita e sistemata per poter essere dignitosa.

Owner's Response: The apartment is cleaned thoroughly after every guest which obviously includes the sheets and everything else. Normally it is used in the spring and the summer rather than in December. As it is the end of the season the pots and pans are due to be replaced and the flat is due to be given a general make-over before next year.
