“Lovely relaxing place to stay.”
Reviewed 3 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Giulia and Malcolm are wonderful hosts. After spending time in London and Paris we were looking forward to a quiet relaxing place and we found it. Convenient to many places to visit and the Lake views were great.

“Don't pack a corkscrew”

We consider ourselves to be seasoned visitors to Italy. We’ve travelled and stayed in some lovely places, as lovely but none lovelier than the region of Lazio in which is La Porcellaia and, nearby, the Lago di Bolsena. We have also found ourselves delighted by the charm and generosity of character of those who have graciously made their houses available to us. But no hosts have exceeded Giulia and Malcolm. We found ourselves in an apartment ideally located for access to the allures of the region, one with a wonderful view upon it, and one in which the fastidiousness and imaginative attention to detail of the owners had supplied us with every means by which we could live and function with the easefulness that one wishes for a holiday. Region, prospect and the charm that originates only in human warmth and generosity of spirit have made of our recent visit to Italy a precious memory.

“Our third visit to this beautiful house”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We visited La Porcilaia twice before in 2006 and 2010. We loved it so much we had to come again! You have the whole of the top floor of the house which is reached by the stairway shown on the picture. It has been fitted out to a very high standard and furnished tastefully to produce the rustic Italian feel but with all the mod cons you need. Our favourite part of the house is the Loggia where we enjoyed having breakfast and watching the sun set over Lake Bolsena in the evening. It is ideally situated for visiting the nearby lake which is good for swimming and also many interesting towns around. Giulia and Malcolm have lots of useful tips of places to visit nearby and restaurants. Our favourite town is Orvieto which is the nearest big town. We would also recommend a trip to Villa Lante and Parc de Mostri.
