Wonderful apartment in Viterbo
About the Owner
We have lived here since 1975, with our 2 daughters (now not still at home), a dog and 3 cats. Our families are native to Viterbo for several generations, and both we love the region.
Tuscia, today, is renowned as the "Territory of the Etruscans" and, as such, it offers countless opportunities to explore this wonderful ancient culture.
Viterbo is the centre of this rich region, with its famous "medieval" city-centre and equally famous "thermal spa". You are within easy reach mountains, green countryside, the seaside (only 40 minutes by car), two volcanic lakes really enjoiables (Bolsena and Vico - 20 minutes drive). You can visit Rome, Orvieto or Siena in on a day trip.
Guestbook comments from the owner
"We visited Villa Lucia for a family holiday and found the idyllic spot within walking distance to the walled city of Viterbo with its restaurants and shops, but also easy access by train to Rome and by car to local villages and lakes. The Villa had plenty room for 2 adults and 2 teenagers with its own BBQ and outdoor seating and dining area. The pool was perfect with large surrounding garden for games, and also a covered area with seating and fridges for those who just want to relax out of the sun. The snacks brought to the poolby Lucia were an added bonus! Lucia and Luigi are a most welcoming family and made us feel relaxed from the moment we arrived. Thanks to our hosts we had a great holiday and we look forward to returning in the future"

Wonderful apartment in Viterbo
This is a lovely property. It is accurately described and the photos give a clear impression of it. It was also very clean and well maintained. The kitchen has all the bits and pieces you need to cook your own meals and the layout of the bedrooms were great for our family. The swimming pool is lovely - it's set in a pretty garden and is very clean. There are also a lot of loungers and chairs available if you want to relax. Luigi and Lucia were fantastic hosts - even coming out late at night to collect us when we got lost! They were always willing to help or provide idea for days out. The property is within walking distance of the town - however, it would be a little far for younger children to walk. There are plenty of other attractions in the area such as lakes, ruins etc but you will need a car to visit them. I would thoroughly recommend this property to anybody who would like to experience this less visited area of Lazio.
A fantastic property, hosted by lovely people
A great apartment with a brilliant pool. It was all perfect, including the weather
The location is excellent. Just outside Viterbo, so really quiet. Pool is lovely, Breakfast ourside every morning. Close to some superb restaurants. The property is clean, well appointed and the owners are charming. Couldn't ask for more.
An excellent choice!
As a family of three adults and a baby we were looking forward to a relaxing holiday in a comfortable villa with swimming pool in lovely surroundings. Our expectations were exceeded on all accounts. Even before we arrived the email exchanges showed the owners' great willingness to please, i.e. help in locating car pick up from Ciampino, baby requirements etc. Lucia 's and Luigi's welcome, and assistance throughout, was warm and unstinting, not to mention Lucia's delicious
cakes and their superior extra-virgin olive oil. The property is lovely.
We enjoyed the large and well entertained garden, the clean swimming pool with a shaded area and another shaded area for meals al fresco, the latter very conveniently sited by our entrance, where the scent of jasmins
The accommodation inside was stylish and at the same time practical and family-friendly, well-planned, well-equipped and extremely clean. It felt like a proper home, very welcoming.
We also loved the very quiet location but close enough to Viterbo (a lively and delightful historical town) to walk there and close to other lovely places in this history-rich area (we hired a car).
Thank you, Lucia and Luigi for making us feel so welcome. We are hoping to come again!
After 3 days in Rome we hired a car to get to Lucia and Luigi's beautiful apartment. It was an easy drive (once out of Rome!), we would HIGHLY recommend a car and could not have really managed without one.
The apartment was clean, spacious, quiet and had everything we needed. The pool was immaculate and the children spent every available moment in there. Luigi and Lucia did not mind the noise ! At times we shared the pool with the family but they were very careful not to interfere with our holiday.
The family made us very welcome, we even had Sunday lunch with them in the garden, they were keen to practice their English and taught the children some Italian.
We visited the local town for evening meals but used the bbq and kitchen- local supermarket had all we needed. We swam in the lakes ( a car journey ) and enjoyed the beautiful scenery - this was a quiet and traditional holiday. We loved it and would definitely return, now the children are older (16 and 12) they would struggle to find things to do. HIGHLY RECOMMEND for younger families or older couples that want a break.
A perfect villa for a family holiday
Our week in Villa Lucia exceeded all expectations, even though we had examined the property description in detail and corresponded with Lucia in advance.
The apartment is spacious:nothing has been overlooked. It is generously and comfortably furnished throughout with access to large gardens in which there are places to relax, a large shaded table for eating outside and a wonderful pool. The pool was the best we have found for swimming or simply lounging and kept in perfect condition. We brought a two year old grand-daughter and she had a lovely time as did we all (four adults).
Lucia and Luigi are excellent hosts and always ready to advise or assist their guests. They could not have been kinder.
The area is full of fascination and we should love to return to walk in the forests and explore the all lakes of which we only visited one: the Lago di Vico. Many other places are well within reach but a car is a must due to the fact that the villa is virtually in the countryside (making it very peaceful!).
