“Our host Francesco was able to accommodate us at very short notice when we were visiting Rome. His communication and fast responses with us via LHS were excellent. He is delightful, welcoming, amicable and very generous, offering to drive us from Rome, (where he was on business), to Anguillara, Sabaza Narrow cobblestone paths, no more than two meters wide run between the stone buildings within the castle walls and lead us to our accommodation, a beautiful recently refurbished 3 level medieval home. This house is very special, it has the typical features of the old medieval townhouses built so long ago but with the comfort of all modern amenities and a large open fireplace in the living area. I open the windows in the morning and fling open the big brown shutters. Down the quiet cobbled path are medieval, three story, stone built houses with their pink, blue and purple cyclamen flowers in pots along the windowsills and washing hanging below the windows ; I am transported to a different time, long ago. Excellent restaurants and cafes are very close in the cobbled streets. We also found excellent seafood by the lake and enjoyed eating lunch with long wooden skewers from an open brown cardboard container absolutely brimming with prawns and lightly battered calamari with wedges of lemon. Weekend pop-up market stalls are set up by the lake selling their home made produce of tasty cheese, spicy sausages, fruit jams, tangy sauces and art and crafts. A shuttle bus runs form the town to the train station and back and you can take the train to other towns around the lake or directly to Rome. A supermarket, bakery, hairdresser, Post Office with ATM and other shops are in close walking distance. We climb up the robust ladder on the 3rd floor and through a large roof hatch in the ceiling to a fabulous rooftop terrace where we have the most spectacular views. We look over the old terra cotta rooftops at the ancient buildings of the town surrounding us, across to the perfectly still blue lake and drink hot chocolate in the warm winter sun. It is beautiful and we are so happy to be in this lovely place. ”
