About the Owner

I am the owner of the villa. I live in my grandfather's villa, is located under the hill near the road to Orvieto. Rent my house because as I said, I live in the countryside in a beautiful old house, so the villa Monterado not using it, so I also prefer to rent to recover some of the annual costs.

Be careful

  • 1 of 5

Be careful. The website is very misleading. It refers to "total privacy" and to " the villa is rented entirely to a single family". We arrived to find the house separated into 2 by a flimsy partition and the main bedroom separated from the other half of the house by an internal door. There was another family in the other half of the house, with noisy dog and baby. They were not that noisy. They were just SO close, we could hear everything they did.

VERY unsatisfactory. VERY misleading. There was nothing in the owner's emails to suggest the house was divided into 2 or that we were renting only half the house. There were in fact 2 pools. One for each part of the house. This is a permanent set up and the web site should be changed.

If you are looking for peace and quiet and privacy, this is not the place.

Nice setting. Shame!

Owner's Response: A negative REVIEW, (anonymous) by just the strength to continue, after 10 years of activity enjoyed by all. The Lady (ANONYMOUS) has leased 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms: I have been very clear and precise, THIS IS THE TEXT OF HIRING: ______________________________________________________________________________ "Everything OK, I'll prepare three bedrooms, two doubles and one with two single beds, and 2 bathrooms" ______________________________________________________________________________ But I have left, to this family, 4 double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The villa is very large, 18/20 beds, with 7 double bedrooms and sofa beds separated by heavy curtains, with views on the balconies, with unique panorama. In general it is always rented in its entirety. So THAT silence reigns sovereign over all "The hill of the roses". However, not always, you can have requests for groups of guests so numerosii, The house, since the construction, which made my father was realized, for it can also be used separately. If a family of 4/8 persons, does spend an amount of less money, you can only rent the western part of the villa, privacy is absolutely total, there is also no visual communication. The features are absolutely identical. Exactly what is shown on the website. Last week, a thunderstorm with strong wind has removed a 30 cm panel. partition of the two entrances to the upper floors, immediately put back in its place, a baby crying, my guard dog tied to about 50 meters away, maybe he barked, it is usually very quiet. These negative objections. Mrs. (anonymous) could not make any further comments: The villa, the always clean and well kept pool, the park, the view, the overall cleanliness, perfect hospitality, perfect. As rented, it corresponds exactly to the information in advertising, with the exception of four bedrooms, rented, instead of 7, if you rent the villa as a whole. The property is very large, 17,000 square meters. I think the owner may install, on the east side of the park, a small standing pool to use when the villa is rented partially. ANYONE can ask every detail, than asking for rent, we are pleased to provide exact photographic and descriptive documentation. TThe waste, can not be accumulated inside the house, BUT, ARE BROUGHT, IN CONTAINERS LOCATED AT THE END OF THE ROAD. What is the "the thing" I, I claim exactly, to every guest. Regardless of their "review" positive or negative. POINT

Large comfortable house in beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this large rustic villa. We were a mixed party of 14 -family and friends, adults, teenagers and children. We had wonderful meals on the large table outside, visited the many lovely hill towns including Bagnoregio, Bolsena and Orvieto and particularly enjoyed the crystal clear and unspoilt Lake Bolsena, visiting it almost every day for superb swimming. We also enjoyed the pool which was large and clean and quite warm. Gian Franco was very friendly and helpful and although the wifi was not working for half of our time there, he did everything he could to fix it by the time we left. He also was very generous with his gifts of his own home produced wine. There was plenty of space for our party to sleep in great comfort. We mostly did our own cooking and produced lovely meals from the local produce (I would recommend the Simply supermarket in nearby Bagnoregio over Pennys inMontefiascone which has no deli counter. The kitchen could have been a little better equipped, and the hob was a bit difficult to light, but all in all, a wonderful place to stay. I would love to come again!

Owner's Response: Guests were exceptional. I did my best to make them feel at ease. I had problems with the 'HiFi, but I quickly resolved by installing the HIFI dish on the roof. Now, with the new plant, it is fully functional. I was not told of the little light on the stove, there is a lamp beside the fireplace, you may not have used, I forgot to ullustrare operation, there are many things to explain this and I forgot. They had children and there was no microwave, but they said this only to their departure. I immediately brought the microwave I had in stock, but it was not installed because customers have never required. The swimming pool and the garden, are always taken care, provider and I personally, and my gardener. Now I have a group of Englishmen who have already been to the villa in 2007, are met, the 'HIFI, finally, it works perfectly. Even they appreciate my wine "Orviero DOC" Thank you all.

A Great Week

  • 4 of 5

Me and my family in total a party of 11 have just returned from a great week at this Villa. The Villa is perfectly situated for touring places like Assisi, Gubbio, Viterbo, Siena, lago di Bolsena, Civita di Bagnoreggio....all places we visited and renowned for their history,architecture not to mention the great Cafe bars all very reasonably priced .....

The villa itself was excellent in providing space, calm quiet and all the amenities we needed. A well equipped kitchen provided all that was needed for cooking meals and breakfast. A Nicely decorated living area was great to sit and read or watch TV. The sleeping space was excellent, comfortable beds and bedrooms with superb views. The pool provided relaxation after a day out and great fun for the children and teens aged 11 to 17 years as well as for the adults young at heart irrespective of age. Our boys had plenty of space to play in the lovely grounds surrounding the house as well as to observe nature in the form of a variety of beetles, spiders, grasshoppers who very often became our room mates!!A reasonably sized food store only 4 kms down the road was convenient for shopping.

Overall it was a great week ...a mixture of sight seeing and relaxing in an unspoilt rural setting. Mr Gianfranco, the owner, was always very helpful and came over often to see if we needed anything and make sure our stay was going well.

I would certainly recommend this property for a great relaxing holiday in a lovely area that has easy access to both Umbria and Tuscany regions...but make sure to have a car for sightseeing .....Its an easy drive from Rome Fiumicino.

and Thanks for the wine Mr Gianfranco...very good!!

Owner's Response: Ospiti molto gentili, tutto OK. Specialmente la sera ci sono molte farfalle intorno ai lampioni. Questo anno ho notato la presenza di piccole cavallette, erano decenni che non si vedevano. I contadini del luogo, dicono che i concimi chimici ed i diserbanti hanno distrutto buona parte degli insetti. Spero di ospitare spesso persone così cordiali.

Family suitable

  • 3 of 5

This house is great for large knockabout families. Nothing precious to worry about and plenty of room both inside the house and out to lounge around in.

The view from the garden is fantastic and it is lovely to be in such a quiet and rural location. But in August take your mosquito repellent and buy some Napis gel for after bites.

The drive up to the property is only half concreted and being a bit steep and irregular you have to be careful not to damage the underside of your car. Hopefully he will tarmac the whole drive soon to stop that problem.

The pool was too cold for larking around in so we swam in the lake instead which was no problem as only 15 minutes drive away and not crowded, and of course, inland water not salty or tidal sea water. But it was a bit of a waste of a pool.

The lake is wonderful for swimming, Bolseno very attractive and easy to enjoy and a trip to Civita and Orvieto well worth it - fantastic medieval street after street, I was blown away by them.

We also visited the hot springs - they were as hot as a bath!

We loved the area and the house, if not the pool, were perfect for two families and their friends.

Owner's Response: E' stata una famiglia molto educata e cordiale. La strada è totalmente cementata per la parte che sale nel bosco, la parte iniziale è pianeggiante, è imbrecciata e preferisco mantenerla così per non vedere molto cemento. Ringrazio questi ospiti, sono stai gentilissimi e non mi hanno creato nessun problema.

В этом доме очень просторно, легко дышать и двигаться, не натыкаясь на углы и мебель. В нем есть все для комфортного проживания и совершенно отсутствует «гламур» – это одно из главных достоинств «Colle delle Rose». Аркада, бесконечной галереи, увита благоухающими розами. Бассейн чистится регулярно. Дров для камина много. По газону, вековым дубам и даже дверным решеткам скачет множество белок. Уединение полнейшее. Сидя в кресле на газоне или на диване в доме ты любуешся видом на озеро Bolsena и кажется, что ты занят важным делом. И конечно же, необыкновенное очарование этому месту и ощущение, что тебя тут любят придает хозяин . Он появлялся то на своем стареньком «Merce», то на древнем «BMW» с охапкой бутылок прекрасного молодого вина.

И белое и красное – великолепно. Oн привозил нам оливковое масло. Рисовал подробный план, как проехать к ферме «Mozzarella Buffalo». Рассказывал у кого, какие продукты покупать на рынке. Он очень мил и ненавязчиво заботлив.

Наше трех недельное пребывание было райским.

Большое спасибо!

This is a charming and spacious house where is easy to breathe and easy to move about without bumping into corners or furniture. Everything is here for comfortable living and without a bit of “glamour”, thank heavens; that is one of "Colle delle Rose’s" great achievements. Instead the guest finds arcades and galleries perfumed with roses. The swimming pool sparkles with regular care. The fireplace is outfitted with ample wood. Century-old oaks and a latticed gate decorate the lawn, offering playgrounds to the many squirrels that play endless games to delight the guest. Pure, glorious solitude. From a chair on the lawn or a divan in the house there is a view of Lake Bolsena, so idyllic that the visitor can easily imagine himself to be engaged in important business.

Of course, not the least of the charm of this lovely oasis is the charm of the proprietor, a gentleman who exudes affection for his guests. He appears in his old Mercedes or his equally antique BMW with a cooled bottle of young wine, perfect whether red or white, that he and his friend have made themselves. The rich olive oil he brings comes from yet another friend. Want to add some mozzarella buffalo to your lunch? He will draw you a detailed map to the farm. He’ll tell you who has the best crops and goods in the local market. He is very sweet and unintrusively attentive. Our three weeks in this villa were days in paradise.

Total privacy and tranquility

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 4 (kids 10 & 7) we enjoyed 2 weeks of total privacy surrounded by the enormous natural (forest-) garden on a hill overlooking lake Bolsena, with local wildlife and a huge swimming pool. There is plenty to explore in the area, from ancient ruins to old cities and with lake Bolsena just 10 mins drive away, there is ample opportunity for swimming and very reasonably priced boat hire to enjoy. The area is not vastly spoilt and overrun with tourists giving it a very comfortable local feel. The owner is extremely hospitable, makes a delicious wine and resolved any (minor) issues without a problem. The house itself is large and comfortable and although the kitchen is a bit small and could do with a little TLC it is adequately equipped. The bed rooms and bath rooms are very nice, spacious and clean. The access to the sleeping quarters is through an outside staircase covered by the porch, so with small kids a baby-phone would be recommended. We would certainly recommend this property for a real Italian escape.

From the Owner

This was a property I own, which I have renovated and expanded. I am very much in love with the place where this property is situated. It's a hill at 600mt. a.s.l, the climate is always fresh, the view is wonderful, privacy is complete. The park of oak trees is very original in the summer, all around there is a deep green and a bouquet of flowers and berries. I always had a special affection for this place, as a child I was often on the lawn playing with the ant and the butterflies, now I have more time to play, but often when I have time, I go for a walk in the forest and soils around the villa. (For me it is very important).
