Villa Est, a 16-person villa with infinity pool, is set in the Tuscia hills, near the border with Tuscany and Umbria. The villa is privately situated at 2 km from the road where, after a challenging drive, you will enter the most wonderful piece of nature.
The impressive silence and the breathtaking view on the lake, combined with luxurious comfort, have made the villa a renowned pearl in the region.
An oasis of beauty and calm
Upon entering Villa Est, you experience the tranquillity of the interior through the use of natural materials and earthy colours. The stylish interior with its high level of finishing carries on throughout the villa. The villa consists of two parts, for 8 persons each. In the high season, the villa is always rented out as a whole. Each of the two parts is equipped with a kitchen, a dining area and a living room with a fireplace. There is one shared laundry room with all facilities.
The large and partly covered panoramic terraces around the villa provide both sun and shade at all times of the day. There is no air conditioning, but the altitude and the specially equipped roof make the air pleasantly cool in and around the villa, even at high temperatures. The barbecue area with luxurious outdoor furniture is equally inviting for an aperitif at sunset.
Luxury in nature
From the infinity pool (12 x 5 metres) you will enjoy a fantastic view of the surrounding landscape: gently sloping green with the blue lake in the background. The pool has a wide entrance with stairs, and the depth varies from 1.20 m to 1.50 m. Beside the pool, you’ll find a large, wind-free relaxation area with comfortable bamboo sun beds and an outdoor shower.
There are several places in the large garden where you can retreat and enjoy nature with all your senses. By a natural staircase you reach the olive grove that lies just below the swimming pool. You should also have a look at the garden vineyard. In 2020, we planted Merlot, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo and Sangiovese vines there.
A holiday villa in Italy with infinity pool is a very suitable location for workshops, team building and other group activities. The accommodations have been adjusted to host 16 persons in separate beds, and there is a large and separate, multifunctional room / studio at your disposal. Naturally, the private setting of the villa is a great added value.
The beautiful Mediterranean garden attracts plenty of butterflies and birds. In the wider surroundings, you will spot larger animals such as wild boar, porcupines, foxes, birds of prey and, with some luck, maybe even wolves. Villa Est lies at an equal distance of Montefiascone and Bolsena, about 6 km away. Montefiascone is well-known for its extraordinary legend of ‘Est! Est!!! Est!!!’, which also gave its name to a local wine. It is an authentic town, a masterpiece of Renaissance art and architecture, with a magnificent cathedral and, thanks to its high position, a spectacular view of the lake.
In the medieval town of Bolsena, you can visit the impressive castle. In the evening, you will enjoy a pleasant meal after a walk through the maze of alleys or along the beach. The villages of Marta and Capodimonte are equally suitable for a delicious lakeside dinner. The ancient pilgrimage route that leads to Rome, the Via Francigena, passes at 1 km from the villa.
The lake of Bolsena is nicknamed ‘Il lago che si beve’ — the lake that you can drink. It is the purest and largest volcanic lake of Europe. The water is crystal clear indeed, which makes it very inviting for divers. The wind can be quite challenging in the afternoon, so sailors, (wind)surfers and wakeboarders will be well catered for. Hiring a boat and exploring the two islands on a sunny day makes for a very enjoyable family excursion. Around the lake you will meet many hikers, cyclists and horse riders.
Civita di Bagnoregio is 8 km away. It has been declared one of the ‘Borghi piu belli d’Italia’ where celibrities are gradually finding their way. Due to the ongoing erosion, the Etruscan village has become completely isolated and only accessible via a long pedestrian bridge. The unique character of ‘the dying city’ has made the houses very expensive.
Orvieto, at 16 km away, is a charming city that dominates the top of a hill. It has one of the most beautiful Gothic cathedrals in Italy. The beautiful buildings, underground passages and the sixteenth-century water well are worth a visit too. Perugia (with its airport) is 65 km away, Rome 87 km, Siena 97 km and Florence 145 km.
Water, electricity, heating, kitchen towels, garbage bags, blocks for dishwasher, toilet paper and wood for bbq and fireplace are included.
We make the beds in advance and provide bed and bath linen.
Catering is available on request.
