The space

This house was our dream for many years. It took forever to find it - just the perfect spot - in the countryside and totally private, with the most awesome view you can imagine: Oaks and olive groves interrupt rows of grape vines meandering down the hillside to the lake shore. Centuries old farmhouses glow red in the early morning light... I'll stop now, Just check out the pictures and you will see what I mean.
The house is above the medieval town of Bolsena, just where the regions of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio meet. The area is known to locals as Tuscia, after the ancient Etruscans who populated the area before the Romans.

The house has a master bedroom with a dressing room and an en-suite bathroom, a large kitchen / living room, which opens out onto the terrace and garden, a bedroom with twin beds, a main bathroom with bathtub and a lounge with fireplace.

The house is a 5 minute drive to Bolsena town, which is rich in history, pageantry and, of course, food. There is pretty much everything you need in the town. The lake is also 5 minutes by car and you can windsurf, sail, waterski and swim. If you are more of a cultural bent, you can explore the literally hundreds of cultural sites, from roman and etruscan ruins to medieval hilltop towns and fortresses.

No exaggeration at all in Sean's description of the house. It truly is a beautiful house (larger than expected) with a splendid view. Very warm welcome from house manager Teresa. Although we did not meet Sean he made sure everything went smoothly. Ideal for young children as well. Garden mostly fenced, bungalow, plenty of toys etc. Altogether fantastic holiday place.

Absolutely fantastic location. Very private and breathtaking views over the Bolsena Lake. The house is splendid, well equipped and has great outdoor spaces facing the lake. We will definitely recommended this house to others.

Sean's house is incredible. The photos here are obviously beautiful, but who would have thought that the reality is even plenty-fold better? This is a house to stay. We felt welcome after 5 minutes and were bonding more and more with the site and the details every single hour. Every corner is cozy, comfortable and full of love. We truly felt at home and nothing limited us at all. The kitchen is huge and inviting to extensive cooking sessions, the garen is beautiful, carries spices, nuts, figs and even some vegetables, the view from every room is just stunning... fantastic. We will definitely be back!

This is a really great place for people looking for a private villa overlooking the lake - but within a few minutes drive from downtown Bolsena. The house is spacious, comfortable and spoiling to stay in - lots of green, fresh mountain air and amazing starry nights. Sean made every effort to make our stay comfortable and smooth. The villa is especially equipped for families with kids - a cozy kids' bedroom with matching linen, a small playground and even a tree-house! Those who care for such things will appreciate the English speaking, Sky-enabled widescreen TV.

Wonderful house, amazing view over the Bolsena Lake, very private and peaceful location. We had a perfect stay at Casa Poiana. Milena, the house manager, who welcomed us was very nice. We didn't saw Sean but he was always available when we had questions. The official wild cat of the house is so sweet, we were even sad to leave her... Fantastic place for nature lovers!

This is really a wonderful house. Maria and Sean as well as their house manager Teresa are the best hosts you can imagine. The welcome warm and familiar. The equipment of the house is perfect. We felt as guests in a very personal and nice surrounding. You find everything you need for a terrific vacation. Please ask for the condition of the road before you go there. If Sean would be responsible for it, there would not be the lightest difficulty. I would like to take the house and move it a little closer to where we live and spend all my vacations there. The area is very interesting,you get perfect advices for all the activities you like. We will definitely come back. Thank you so much. Wer sich für einen ruhigen Urlaub im eher ursprünglichen Italien interessiert und auf Halligalli verzichten will, ist in dieser Region perfekt aufgehoben.Beim Suchen auf airbnb hat uns dieses wunderschöne Haus sofort angesprungen. Es ist wirklich ein Traumhaus. Ausgestattet mit allem Komfort und eingerichtet mit persönlichen Gegenständen, fühlten wir uns sofort wie zuhause. Die Ankunft war perfekt organisiert. Die Anfahrtsbeschreibung sehr ausführlich. Im Haus viele Informationen zu Haus und Umgebung. Die sehr persönliche Betreuung, auch durch die Hausmanagerin Teresa, ließ keine Fragen und Wünsche offen. Wir fühlten uns im Traumhaus von Maria und Sean perfekt aufgehoben. Für uns hat sich im Zustand der Strasse die zum Haus führt der einzige Wermutstropfen, in diesem ansonsten wirklich wunderbaren Urlaub, ergeben. Gerne kommen wir wieder. Herzlichen Dank an Maria, Sean und Teresa.

Wir können uns den anderen Gästen nur anschließen: Wirklich alles war absolut perfekt. Die herzliche Betreuung durch Milena und Sean, die Lage und Ausstattung des Hause, die gesamte liebevolle Atmosphäre dieser Location (die Bilder sprechen für sich), der Blick auf den See, die Ruhe.... gleich komme ich wieder ins Schwärmen! Wir hatten wirklich eine tolle Zeit und konnten uns nur sehr schwer von Casa Poiana trennen.
