General Description

view out to sea from the apartment.This rooftop apartment overlooking the beach is completely surrounded by a large terrace and offers wonderful views directly onto the Mediterranean sea.  With the sand and the sea immediately below, it is the closest one can get to being on a boat yet still being able to trot off at will for ice cream! The water is  clean for bathing - three sails qualification from the marine environment inspectors in 2008. The islands of Giglio and Giannutri can be seen on the horizon and the sun sets gloriously behind Porto Ercole and Argentario while you dine on the terrace

The fabulous lake Bolsena and the historical town of Orvieto are a short drive away. Florence and Rome are within easy reach.

A must, particularly if you love being at one with the sun and the sea!

Description of the Apartment 

views out to sea on all sidesThe apartment and its terrace occupy the whole roof area of a 2 storey building (so affording a degree of privacy) at the beginning of the Marina, close to the small fishing harbour at the mouth of the river Fiora. Fantastic views along the coast in both directions. A pergola runs along the front of the apartment offering welcome shade during hotter hours.  There are plenty of areas on the private terrace to sunbathe, rest or dine. The  barbeque is ideally placed with a view out to sea - food with a view! Access to the apartment is by an independent external staircase.

Ancient Roman shipsThe layout of the property is very simple: A sitting room/kitchen, passageway through to the two bedrooms and bathroom. The master bedroom has a double bed whilst the children's bedroom has bunk beds. An extra independent double room and bathroom have also been added recently and are available at an extra charge.

Being on the coast you can sleep to the sound of the waves lapping on the shore...The property is comfortable and very well equipped with everything one could need for a trouble-free stay.

All the windows face out to sea. You can lay in bed lulled by the sound of the waves lapping on the shore ...what a way to start (or end) the day!   see the photo page

Tourism

So many things to see and places to visit....

The Romani basilicas at Tuscania incorporate over a millenium of architecture within a single edifice.The area has much to offer in the way of tourist attractions as well as being ideally connected to allow day-trips to places such as Viterbo, Orvieto, Tarquinia, Pisa, Siena, Florence, Rome...need we go on?

The local sites are also a must: much of what has been excavated at the nearby ancient Etruscan city of Vulci can now be found in the museums of Rome, London and NewYork. There is so much to see that we have created separate description pages, for example:The wonderful sculptures of monsters in the Orsini family gardens.

Local sites are ideal if you wish to experience a sense of discovery rather than follow the usual tourist track.

Food in the area is genuine.  From the freshly caught fish and locally grown fruit and vegetables to  the artisan  cheeses produced 'before your very eyes' and the excellent ice-creams.   The olive oil from this area is recognised and guaranteed as one of Italy's finest.
