Superb luxurious accommodation with direct views of the lake. It was easy to find, after we checked the location on the Google street view.
We arrived around 9pm and the owner kindly offered dinner at their restaurant.
The room was spacious and looked brand new with luxurious antique furniture. It had a small kitchenette and bright and spacious bathroom. Each room has a separate entrance from the garden, which gives it a villa vibe rather than a hotel.
Breakfast is served upstairs in a very bright and nicely decorated dining area, with a splendid view over the lake. They served the best homemade apple crumble pie we have ever had!
It's only 15min drive from the Ciampino airport, which made it a great weekend getaway for us!
