An amazing, quiet relaxing spot with a breathtaking view. The host was super helpful and even made us pizza! Will definitely come back.

I spent a birthday weekend with 15 friends at Cristina's place, and it was just amazing. The pictures don't do it justice - the view from the pool is magical. Each of the three houses (Loft, main house, pool house) had different charm, the outside table is perfect to have group dinners in the evening, and the pool perfect to cool off during the day. The area is lovely - we went for dinner in Viterbo and visited Lake Bolsena twice (recommended!). The location of the house is hard to find - but the caretaker Vincenzo picked us up as soon as we called (he was lovely btw). The WIFI didn't work most of the time, but we didn't come to be on our phones, so we didn't mind. All in all a fantastic place. Thank you Cristina!

Wow. The view from the garden of the house looking over the valley and castle is spectacular. The house is in a secluded spot outside of Celleno. The directions provided drive you past the castle and down a very bumpy and broken road to find the house. The same road can be reached from the other end as well which is better for the hire car. Although I am grateful we approached from the castle side on day 1 as we had 2 cars full of hungry kids who needed lunch and the cafe by the castle looked after us very well. There is parking on the drive for 2-3 cars. The house and 2 outhouses are lovely. The main house provides a dining room, the main sitting room with another dining table, fully kitted out kitchen (we didn't need anything that wasn't there), bathroom, double bedroom with a cot bed - all downstairs. Upstairs were two further bedrooms - 1 double (with a cot bed) and 1 twin. The stairs are open and made of stone so you should be careful there with toddlers. There is TV and wifi in the house, neither of which worked very well. However, if you go somewhere like this and need those things you are not doing it right IMHO. Mobile data reception was good throughout the property except for a couple of rooms with thick stone walls. There is no air-con in the main house, but it wasn't really required due to its construction even during the super hot period we had while there. Outhouse 1/The Loft is a massive converted barn I believe with 3 double beds and an open bathroom. Air-con worked very well in this room and it was an oasis in the 42C heat this August. The shower is 'unique', but warm and powerful although it does tend to spray water everywhere - not that it really matters with a concrete floor. My wife and I had this room on our own as things worked out and it was very comfortable. Outhouse 2/Pool House has two double rooms with en-suite. Each has its own air-con. Both rooms were perfect for my boys aged 10 and 12. Very comfortable and conveniently close to the pool which was their highest priority :) The pool is quite small, but perfect for families. It is a uniform depth, a little cold as it isn't heated but after a bracing first 60 seconds it is a lovely temperature in the Italian sunshine. We had a great time in the pool with a blow up volleyball net which we had taken along. Cristina has help locally to look after the house and Vincenzo looked after us well, even providing a tray of tomatoes from his garden for us to make into sauce for our homemade pizzas. There is a pizza oven and brick BBQ on site which we used to good effect more than once. The decoration is good throughout, with the exception of...

The location of this place is beautiful, secluded and quiet with heavenly views over the hills and the ruins of the castle in nearby Celleno. The photos do not do this justice. We were three families, each with one child, and we had an absolute blast. As is clear from the listing, it is an unusual property, spread over three buildings, with a slightly unorthodox arrangement of beds - and in particular a toilet - and I feel that nine or ten guests is about the maximum I personally would recommend. The decor is charming and rustic, verging on the shabby side of shabby chic, and could IMO do with a bit of decluttering. We are fairly laid back, and for us the property worked brilliantly: the location, the garden, the small but beautifully situated pool, the covered seating areas outside and best of all: the old wood burning pizza oven attached to the outside of the old house. The owner Cristina could not have been more helpful, and responded swiftly to all communication, and Vincenzo who keeps an eye on the property is a legend: we asked him how to get the pizza oven going, and he turned up the next day with dough he'd prepared, and all the trays, and taught us how to roll and cook the best pizza we've ever eaten. Unforgettable. Go to the Bar San Roca in Celleno (a great place to eat also) and ask Andrea for his recommendations for local restaurants. Go late in the afternoon to Civita di Bagnoreggio - stunning. Go to the large supermarket Conad in Viterbo to do a large shop and try not to be too jealous of the amazing variety of local fruit and veg (buy wine glasses while you're at it - the position of the tap and the marble sink in the kitchen resulted in quite a high breakage rate). Go to Bolsena, go to Orvieto (breathtakingly beautiful, try to do the underground city tour which we missed), and take the time to just chill by the pool watching the sun set over the hills.

Setting and views are absolutely stunning. The village is charming with a few basic food and restaurants available. Houses ( traditional main house 3 bdr and the kitchen living room etc, pool house with 2 bdr and wc, barn loft open space with 3 beds and wc) are beautiful, warm and spacious. A few details for improvement: Internet and TV did not work throughout, communications with host didnt solve. Half of the wc have no doors or walls. Some doors lock automatically take note not to lock yourself out! Come fully prepared with basics as kitchen was well equipped but empty (coffee tea etc oil salt water). Water is safe but smells so need mineral. Cristina was responsive but some things remained unsolved throughout. The (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) ping is inaccurate but can coordinate with host for arrival.

Words can hardly describe this place. The house is perfect, the swimming pool is relaxing and refreshing and that view is just AMAZING. Pictures don't even do it justice. What a great place to stay at. Absolutely brilliant. Cristina is a wonderful host, she cooked us a very good typical Italian diner when we asked for it and everyday the gardener comes around to clean the pool and make sure everything is according to your wishes. The countryside around the house is fantastic. Lots of wildlive (foxes, wild boar, birds and deer) as well. Everything you need is within a 25 minutes ride (Viterbo), but for your basic groceries you can go to Celleno which is a 5 minute ride. Small supermarket and a great bakery can be found there. Rome is also easily reachable. We found it easiest to drive to Orte and take a 38 minute trainride straight into Rome. Saves you the hassle of driving in downtown Rome! Bagnoreggio is also very close (15 min) and well worth the visit! All in all, we had a perfect stay for 2 weeks and time flew! Last tip: try to find the location on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps for the best route. Saves you a drive on a non-paved road from Celleno (take the SP5!). Thank you Cristina, for having us and delivering us a perfect holiday! Hope to be back someday!!!
