Apartments close to the beach

Conveniently located just on the shore of Bolsena lake, at the crossroads of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio, 1.5hrs from Florence, Rome and Siena, 1hrs from Perugia, 25min from Orvieto and Viterbo. Set in 22 acres , directly stretched to the front lake, we produce olive oil , sunflowers and vegetables. The carefully chosen furnishings, the warmly colored and welcoming fabrics, the antique furniture and elegant wrought iron finishings together make the Podere Arlena agritourism complex one of superior level that remains respectful of its country style. You'll have your holiday in a pleasant and relaxing environment that offers an incredible variety of sight-seeing with cultural, gastronomic and wine-tasting excursions in the regions of Latium, Umbria and Tuscany.

The agriturismo Podere Arlena is organized in nine different apartments , you'll find here the description, the interior facilities , rates and availability about a three rooms apartment, suitable for 4-6 persons. Let me know if you can be interested in other type of apartment .The three rooms apartment cover 70 sqm , it has 1 bedroom with double bed , 1 bedroom with two single beds, living area with two single beds and mini-kitchen, two bathrooms with shower and a 12sqm covered porch. If you need of smaller apartment you can look in homeaway.com , at the link https://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p767065vb.

The owners,Manni family, live in farmhouse and they will be glad to meet all your needs during your stay.

A 150-meter-long path cuts through a sunflower field and leads you directly to the quiet of the lake, on foot or by bicycles , some free available in farmhouse.There you will be welcomed by a stretch of lawn and beach equipped for bathing, where your privacy is assured by the impenetrability of the adjacent reeds, paradise for the black bass spinning. The sandy shore gradually declines into the lake, lending to a shallow area that is well-suited for swimming, even for small children. Longue chairs ,floating beds , changing room and shower free available .A splendid "ontano" (alder), a typical lake tree, sinks its roots directly into the shore and acts as a frame for this suggestive corner of the lake. Canoe outings along the reeds will allow you to bird watch the many species found on the lake, while sun worshipers can enjoy laying in the sun on the beach, or directly on the water on one of our "Malibu" floating beds.

Fishing is one of the prominent pastimes of Bolsena, and is still practiced by local fishermen who use the triangular boats and asymmetric paddles that are typical of the area. Sport fishermen can enjoy catching the particularly abundant "persico trota" (black bass spinning ), but also "persico reale" (royal perch), , "luccio" (pike), "tinca", "carpa" (carp) ,coregone and "anguilla" (eel).You can also arrive with your bassboat just to the shore of the lake directly in farmhouse . Place fantastic for bellyboat fishing along the adjacent long reeds .

The lake - the largest of volcanic origin in Italy and shiny in every corner - is exceptionally transparent thanks to the fact that large, pollution-generating industries have never settled around it. In fact, the local fishermen still use the water of the lake to cook "Sbroscia", the typical local fish soup.

"Bisentina" island is the pearl of the lake and also of Italy's artistic patrimony. Once a papal summer residence, it was recently returned to the admiring public offering guided visits with daily departures from the Port of Bolsena.

The town of Bolsena

Its origins date back to the III century BC when it was populated by inhabitants who escaped from the destruction of Velzna, one of the most important Etruscan cities, destroyed by the Romans in 264 BC.

Bolsena inherited its name from Velzna, which classic sources have handed down to us in the Latin form Volsinii.n 1263 an event of enormous consequences marked the history of Bolsena. In the Basilica, dedicated to Saints George and Cristina, at the moment of elevation during a mass celebrated by the Bohemian priest Pietro da Praga, drops of blood fell from the host onto the linen altar cloth and marble altar; both objects are still kept in the chapel of the Miracle of the Church of Saint Cristina, erected in the XI century.

That Eucharistic miracle, whose fame went beyond the peninsula’s borders, lead Pope Urbano IV to institute throughout the Catholic world the festivity of Corpus Domini. Still today, on June 18, the festivity is remembered with a solemn procession that snakes its way through the city’s streets which are adorned by a continuous carpet of flowers of truly unique artistic style.The evening of July 23 and the morning of July 24, Bolsena celebrates Saint Cristina, its Patron and martyr, with the representation of the Mysteries: Living pictures enacted on wood stages situated in the most important squares of Bolsena representing the martyrdom the Saint suffered.

Under the hill adjacent to the Collegiate Church and Chapel of the Miracle complex lie catacombs whose origins are traced back to the II and III centuries b.c., continuing up to the fifth century a.d. The Fortress (La Rocca), currently known as the Monaldeschi castle, was erected by the people of Orvieto during the XII-XIV century, and dominates the urban center of Bolsena.Ages it was the defensive outpost of the urban center and its hinterland. It’s possible to visit the castle which also houses an interesting museum concerning the lake of Bolsena and archaeological findings from the region. Along the road to Orvieto is a 4km-long stretch of Etruscan city walls which contain the fascinating remains of many monuments.

You cannot stay in Bolsena without making trips to the surrounding areas. Its location allows you to take day trips to the provinces of Viterbo, Siena, Perugia, Terni,the coast of Tirreno sea along Capalbio and Monte Argentario , as well as, obviously, the cities of Rome and Florence. Just 20 km. away is Orvieto and its Cathedral; an incomparable and unique jewel of Gothic art, the Well of St. Patrizio, the Etruscan Necropolis, and a good number of Museums. A short distance away you will also find the towns of Todi, Deruta, Assisi and Gubbio. On the way to Terni you can easily visit Narni, Spoleto and Foligno.Crossing the Tuscan border, just past Acquapendente, you can visit the towns of Val d’Orcia, S. Quirico, Montalcino, Buonconvento, Montepulciano, Pienza and finally Siena.

The visit to Civita di Bagnoregio (10 km from Bolsena) is very suggestive with its medieval town and the extraordinary view of the "calanchi" (eroded cliffs) .The village of Civita will seem like a ghost town , something that could exist only in the mind of a visionary or in a dream remembered .

Of great interest in Montefiascone (10 km from our farm) are the Romanesque church of St. Flaviano and the church of St. Margherita that overlooks the city.

From Montefiascone you can reach Viterbo, capital of the province, where you shouldn’t miss the chance to visit the medieval district, the Sanctuary of St. Rosa, and the Papal Museums and Palace – a splendid building and symbol of the city which hosted the first and longest conclave (election process for choosing the pope) in the history of the Catholic Church .

Near Viterbo are the world-famous princely residences of Bagnaia and Caprarola; magnificent abodes built in the second half of the 16th century by the era’s most important architects to glorify the power of families such as the Orsini and the Farnese families. In the direction of La Quercia you will find the Sanctuary of the "Madonna di La Quercia", built by Giuliano and Anthony Sangallo, whose renaissance façade has three portals that house three lunettes of Andrea della Robbia (1507). Also worthy of mention are the Park of the Monsters of Bomarzo, stone sculptures made at the end of the XVI century by Vicino Orsini, the Doria Pamphilj Palace in St. Martino al Cimino, the ancient medioeval town of Vitorchiano and Soriano al Cimino.

Of particular interest ,among the many cultural events offered, is the summer season of Ferento’s Roman Theatre.

For those who want to enjoy the health and relaxation offered by thermal waters there are the natural spas of Viterbo, San Casciano dei Bagni, Bagno Vignoni and Saturnia just a few minutes by car from the farm.

There are numerous wine and gastronomic initiatives throughout the province of Viterbo including the Est!Est!!Est!!! winery, the Falesco and Aleatico vineyards and above all extra-virgin olive oil.
