Location

The House is very close to the golf courses and and leisure facilities of Sutri, near the famous Vallelunga autodrome and it is only 30 km from the seaside, and 35 km from the highway to Rome. From the house you can start a nice tour in the whole Tuscia coutry and discoer the Etruscan ruins, or spend a pleasant afternoon at the thermal baths in Viterbo. The house is pet friendly, all pets are welcome!

The particular position of Bracciano lake - among the sea, mountains, hills and fields - creates a very special microclimate: gentle windsduring the summer and warm and sunny during the winter.

This makes every sport possible: windsurfing, sailing, swimming, diving, fishing, horseback riding, biking, hang gliding, etc. The cultural visits to Museums and places along the lake are just a small part of the attractions that the area offers. Go west toward Umbria for the great medieval and renaissance art; go north to the Tuscia, for the Etruscan necropolis and medieval towns of Viterbo; go east for the seaside and beautiful beaches, and south to Rome.

Bracciano Lake

Due to its mixture of archeology, art and nature the area around the lakes of Bracciano and Martignano has become a protected area: Parco Regionale Naturale. Both lakes offer long beaches with sport activities (sailing, canoeing, diving etc.). The lakes are very clean as motorboats and polluting activities are strictly forbidden (and this makes the fish a delicious meal!)

The hills around have many woods of chestnuts, beeches, oaks and even birches. Farms in the area take advantage of the rich soil to grow healthy, biological products; taste them prepared accordingly to the ancient and fantastic recipes of the local cuisine in the many tratorias around the lake.

Trevignano Romano is the nearest village to our B&B, very charming with its Etruscan origins (visit the small Musum of the City), the castle and the medieval alleys displayed along its volcanic territory. The tour of the lake, among Romanic churches, parks and ancient archeological thermal baths brings us to the Bracciano village, built a the wonderful castle.

Continuing our tour of the lake we arrive in Anguillara, an old fishing village famous since the period of the Roman Empire.
