The space

Our apartment has one of the nicest views on Lago di Bolsena – on the grand balcony you can relax, sunbathe, eat or do yoga. You see the huge lake, which is different every day. In the night you can see a myriad of stars, and the lights of the villages surrounding the lake are blinking in the dark. In august you can count the falling stars. And swimming in the clear lake is just wonderful.

The flat is perfect for two persons (plus child), but it is ok for up to four people. There is a sleeping room with a double bed (1,80 x 2,00 m) with two windows looking on the lake. In a small store room there is plenty of bathing equipment and toys for kids and a single mattress (0,90 x 2,00), too.

In the living room with kitchen you will find a sleeping couch (1,40 x 2,00), a very small TV and a fully equipped kitchen as well as a lot of novels, travel literature and cooking books (mostly in German, alas). The bathroom has a small shower and a washing machine. Towels and sheets are available.
Bolsena is a very nice medieval place with an old town and a castle. You can have coffee and aperetivo in a lot of nice bars and eat delicious food in the restaurants. Going to the sea takes about one hour.

From S.Antonio there is plenty of places to visit like Orvieto on its hill, Siena, or Rome by train (one hour from Orvieto). There are lots of little villages like Civita di Bagnoreggio, Caprarola (Palazzo Farnese) or Montefiascone. It’s a nice pastime to follow the traces of the old Etruscans. Near the sea there is the beautiful Tarot Garden of Niki de Saint Phalle.
An English speaking neighbor will welcome you and help with questions or problems.
Very important to know: In the Basement and first Floor lives an Italian family and sometimes it is pretty lively and loud.
You definitely need a car: Bolsena is six kilometers away, Montefiascone eight. There is no shop in S. Antonio and you can’t go directly to the lake.
With toddlers and very small children (less than 3) the flat might be unsuitable because of the spaces of the balcony balustrade.

House Rules

Sehr wichtig - very important:
Ganz elementar ist, nicht mehr als 5 Blatt Toilettenpapier auf einmal runterzuspülen. Hier haben die Rohre nur einen Durchmesser von etwa 5-6 cm, verrückterweise. Wenn das Rohr verstopft, sind auch die Nachbarn betroffen, weil alles in einen gemeinsamen Tank geht. Aus dem gleichen Grund mit den Rohren bitte nur flüssiges Waschmittel benutzen!
Mindestens genauso wichtig – oder eigentlich lebensentscheidender – ist die Sache mit Sachen auf dem Balkon. Der Wind kann hier ganz extrem sein und binnen Minuten aufkommen, vor allem der Tramontana hat unheimlich viel Kraft. Man darf den Sonnenschirm beispielsweise auf keinen Fall unbeobachtet lassen, wenn er aufgespannt ist. Er kann umfallen, umklappen oder sogar vom Balkon fliegen und Leute verletzen. (Bei einem Sturm vor einigen Jahren ist eine ganze Liege über das Geländer geflogen…). Auch beim Baden gehen ist ganz wichtig, nicht zu weit hinaus zu schwimmen oder mit Luftmatratzen oder Paddelbooten etc. zu weit vom Strand zu sein. Auch wenn der See eben noch eine glatte Fläche war, kann es innerhalb von Minuten Wellen fast wie am Meer geben und ablandiger Wind verhindern, dass man es zurück schafft.
Bitte auch nichts vom Balkon schütten, werfen oder fegen – alles landet peinlicherweise auf der Markise oder der Veranda unserer Nachbarn.

This may sound a bit weird, but it is very important not to flush more than five pieces of toilet paper at once. Actually Italian pipes are very narrow, like 5-6 cm. If something gets stuck the neighbors also have a problem because we use the same sewage. Please buy and use only very thin paper. And please use only liquid laundry detergent.
Also important is to take good care of the things on the balcony. Sometimes there is a heavy wind, which can start in just an instance, and the parasol and lighter things could be blown off the balcony and hurt other people. (Once a whole sun bed flew over the balustrade). Please take good care of yourself while swimming or taking the dinghi because it can be very difficult to get back to the beach when the wind is strong.
Please don’t throw or swipe anything off the balcony – it would land on our neighbours veranda.
