About the property

The house with lake view offers:3 bedrooms 3 bathrooms, livingroom,large kitchen

Charm and culture: a dream holiday out of time at the center of the world. The proximity with the Odescalchi Castle and the spectacular view of the Bracciano lake make this location unique, gifting it with a magic and romantic atmosphere, a charm of the past that will make your vacation unforgettable. The residence is located in a former Convent of the 15th century, in Bracciano's medieval town opposite the Odescalchi Castle and it's finely refurbished respecting contemporary interiors : exposed beams, coffered ceiling, terracotta's pianella, fireplace and original stone portals from the time are only some of its beautiful characteristics. The old structure masterfully combines with modern living comforts and offers: three bathrooms with modern showers and bath, four bedrooms, two spacious walk-in closets, a sitting room, professional kitchen with center island and large fireworks designed by the famous architect Renzo Piano.

The advantages of this residence are strategic because it is not only located in the heart of the old town (close to the best restaurants, typical shops and supermarkets) but also because Rome is easily reachable (40 KM ) as its airport (Fiumicino- Leonardo da Vinci) and Civitavecchia harbour.

Besides the location is also well positioned for taking day trips to Umbria and Tuscany. It offers a unique experience providing some of the best places in Italy for peace, quiet, gorgeous and artistic scenery.

From the residence you can walk down to the Bracciano Lake and to the local train station where you can take the train to Rome, directly connected to the Subway (Stations of San Pietro and Valle Aurelia) and to the City of Viterbo, the heart of Etruscan Tuscia.

This residence was created by combining two apartments; Therefore its breadth and distribution on three floors can easly accommodate large families or more couples of friends at the same time, safeguarding their privacy.

PLEASE NOTE: Prices are based on the number of people and period.

Winter period only Nov till April there will be a charge accordingly- for gas-central heating. A cost for electricity could be added.

A deposit is requested on arrival and will be refunded on departure.

Why Marina chose Rome Province

I chose this residence not only for for its magic atmosphere but also for its strategic position. It is located in the heart of the old town (close to the the best restaurants, typical shops and supermarkets) near Rome (40 KM), Umbria and Tuscany.The airport (Fiumicino- Leonardo da Vinci) and Civitavecchia harbour are easily reachable(40 KM). From the mansion you can walk down to the Bracciano Lake and to the local train station where you can take the train to Rome, directly connected to the Subway (Stations of San Pietro and Valle Aurelia) and to the City of Viterbo, the heart of Etruscan Tuscia. The location is at the heart of everything: the ideal starting point for nature walks, artistic and archaeological sites on foot, by bike and on horseback.

What makes this apartment unique

The spectacular view of the lake and the proximity with the castle make this location unique. For its magic atmosphere it's perfect for romantic couple. But it's also the ideal for large families, or more couple of friends. This residence was created by combining two apartments; Therefore its breath and distribution on three floors can easily accommodate more families at the same time, safeguarding their privacy

Nicely furnished apartment in a beautiful part of the old town.

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 5 days in this lovely apartment. We had arranged a time to meet and were met by Marina and her daughter who had the apartment perfectly prepared for our arrival - even a bottle of cold Prosecco in the refrigerator.

All of the linens were freshly done and plenty of fluffy towels were available. The apartment has been recently updated with a modern kitchen and a lovely shower and was spotless. More than we could have imagined.

Parking the car was a tiny challenge - there is a pay by the hour parking in the nearby piazza or a paid garage several blocks away, but we found a free city lot where most of the workers park about a ten minute walk away that was perfect.

There are several supermarkets nearby to choose from, a nice deli just down the street and many, many restaurants within easy walking distance.

It is such a nice break from the hustle and bustle of Rome, yet so easy to get to the City by train or to drive out to the coast to see the Etruscan finds at Tarquina and Cerveteri.

Spend sometime walking and enjoying this most relaxing city.

Highly recommended!!

Beautiful apartment in medieval Bracciano

  • 5 of 5

We booked this apartment for a family reunion recently and had a magical week in Bracciano! We ate , talked and relaxed in the comfort of the apartment which was tastefully furnished with beautiful rugs and lovely old pieces of furniture. We also ate out in some lovely local restaurants, we spent a morning visiting the castle, we swam in the lake on our daughter's birthday and we had two day trips into Rome, easy accessible by train from the local station. It was lovely to return to this beautiful apartment at the end of the day and enjoy it's comforts . We would love to go back someday!

Schöne Wohnung in idyllischem Provinzort nahe Rom

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung befindet sich direkt im Zentrum von Bracciano. Wir sind dort mit Familie und einer Freundin unserer Tochter gewesen. Sie ist ideal, wenn Sie Kulturelles und Freizeit miteinander verbinden möchten: Gute Zugverbindung nach Rom (alle 30 min) direkt ins Zentrum (ca. eine Stunde Fahrt), wunderschöne Landschaft am Lago di Bracciano mit guten Bademöglichkeiten, auch in der Umgebung weitere interessante Kulturstätten, und, wenn einen das nicht so interessiert, Möglichkeiten zu Wandern etc. etc. Auch das Städtchen selbst ist liebenswert, eine gute Alternative zur Großstadt in der Hitze. Die Wohnung selbst ist sehr sauber und gut ausgestattet. Sie hat einen langen, etwas schmalen Balkon mit Blick in die Altstadt von Bracciano. Sie ist überaus geräumig, wie waren zu Fünft und hätten auch noch mehr Personen sein können. Wir sind sehr gastfreundlich empfangen worden und würden jederzeit gerne wiederkommen. Wir waren dort vom 05.07.2014 bis 12.07.2014 (konnten systembedingt nicht mehr das korrekte Datum angeben), die Weihnachtszeit ist immer gut für Rückblicke und Erinnerungen und so denken wir jetzt gerade an die glücklichen Tage in Bracciano!

Traumhaftes Domizil

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten wunderschöne Tage in Bracciano. Vielen Dank an Marina für den herzlichen Empfang. Die Wohnung ist ein Traum, alles sehr sauber und stilvoll, die Lage mitten in der Altstadt ist perfekt. Die Zuganbindung nach Rom von Bracciano aus ist sehr angenehm, so dass Tagestrips dorthin auch mit 4 Kindern problemlos zu machen sind.

The best holiday apartment we've rented

  • 5 of 5

Our party comprised: myself aged 73, my wife aged 75 and our daughter aged 43. The apartment is spacious with excellent bedrooms and pleasant public rooms, includung a vast kitchen, attractive lounge, a study and a terrace. It is well -equipped for cooking, eating, and relaxing; the wifi gives a good, speedy connection; and there is a splendid library if you can read Italian. There are many elegant pieces of furniture which enhance the visitor's experience. Given that we arrived in late winter, we were delighted to find that it was warm and very comfortable

In addition, the apartment is placed in the historic centre of the town, near the castle and the Duomo, surrrounded by good eating places, and near the shops. .

Bracciano and its lake are not well-known outside Italy, but the area is beautiful, unspoiled and very welcoming, as is our hostess, Marina, who gave us her best attention from first contact to last. We hope to return.

Nearest Beach
900 Metres
near the lake
Car: not necessary

Bracciano is famous throughout the world for the castello Orsini Odescalchi, scenario of social events, famous weddings (Tom Cruise, Eros Ramazzotti) and location for movies. Not to be outdone is the Lake of Bracciano, a protected oasis within the regional Park, which is home for countless species of animals and birds.

The Lake offers a variety of leisure activities, numerous sports facilities as sailing, windsurfing and daily trips by boat. On its shores you may wish to visit: the Romanesque church of San Liberato, surrounded by a famous Botanical Garden and a lush garden, the charming towns of Anguillara Sabazia and Trevignano and the Museum of Aviation Weapons with the most important Italian collection of historical aircrafts. A few kilometres there are many forested areas and the famous Terme di Stigliano with the Roman Spa. Approximately 15 miles away there are the Museo Nazionale Etrusco di Cerveteri and the necropolis of Banditaccia, some of the most important Etruscan sites. In a few miles you also have the very well preserved Castle of Santa Severa overlooking the sea side, with wide sandy beaches.

To conclude, Bracciano and our home are at the heart of everything:

the ideal starting point for nature walks, artistic and archaeological sites on foot, by bike and on horseback
