Holiday Rental House
Surrounded by beautiful countryside with panoramic views across fields and woodland to distant mountains, Laguscello is a recently restored 18th century farmhouse and cottage with a fabulous pool, in an idyllic and peaceful location. Laguscello offers really flexible luxury accommodation options for friends or families staying together: 1 The 18th century farmhouse can be rented on its own to sleep 8-10 in four huge ensuite bedrooms. 2. Those renting the farmhouse from May to October can also opt - if they wish - to rent the self-contained Little House, with accommodation for four more. 3 In winter, the farmhouse is closed, but the Little House can be rented as a cosy bolt hole for up to 4.

Laguscello offers really flexible luxury accommodation options for friends or families staying together: 1 The 18th century farmhouse can be rented on its own to sleep 8-10 in four huge ensuite bedrooms. 2. Those renting the farmhouse from May to October can also opt - if they wish - to rent the self-contained Little House, with accommodation for four more. 3 In winter, the farmhouse is closed, but the Little House can be rented as a cosy bolt hole for up to 4. Without a building in sight, Laguscello provides seclusion without isolation. It stands in a secure private garden with 12m x 8m pool, lawns and flower beds with shady terraces, outdoor dining and original pizza oven - which guests can use. It is just 15 minutes from lovely Lake Bolsena and the medieval town of Orvieto and an easy day trip to Rome, Florence, Siena and within easy reach for outings to all the Umbrian and Tuscan 'must-sees'. The farmhouse is very spacious with original features, high beamed ceilings, clean white walls, locally hand-made cotto floor tiles and a stylish mix of contemporary and antique furnishings. It has a stunning roof-to-floor entrance hall and massive 50 foot kitchen and dining room - with a huge table made by a local carpenter taking pride of place. This style is mirrored in the charming Little House, occupying one end of the farmhouse but with its own entrance, which also retains its original features - it dates from 1924. Inside is a simple but pretty and fully-equipped kitchen, lounge, shared bathroom and two bedrooms which both have their own access onto a large first floor terrace with superb panoramic views on three sides.

Interaction with guests
After being met on their arrival and shown around the property by our manager, we tend to leave our guests alone unless they make contact with our manager or directly with us - as we find most of our guests choose Laguscello because of the peace and privacy it gives them. An information book provides detailed information about Laguscello and things to see and do in the area. However, we are only a phone call, text or email away should you need us!

Driving through the gates to Laguscello, we struggled to pick our jaws up from the floor. This residence is breathtaking. The sprawling grounds are magnificently manicured and the interior tastefully decorated. The bedrooms are large, spacious and pristine, each with accompanying ensuite. The living areas...More

So pleased you enjoyed your stay and thanks for your review. Just a shame you didn't come a few weeks later as very soon, the fields surrounding the house will be carpeted in bright yellow sunflowers - so the views will be even more spectacular!

Beautifully restored farmhouse - so good we've come back for a second visit. Ideally located to explore Orvieto, Bolsena, Rome etc, but also just to relax - in fact it's hard to drag yourself away from Laguscello to do very much at all - maybe...More

We enjoyed an early spring holiday in the 'Little House' attached to the old farmhouse. This is very spacious and has been completely restored in a minimalist, modern style that retains many of the original features and suits the character of the building. The farmhouse...More

Additional amenities & feature info
There is an instant wow factor on opening the front door of Laguscello's 18th century farmhouse and stepping into a towering floor-to-roof hall with a ceiling of sweet chestnut beams soaring high above. An original arch on one side opens directly into a lounge, with comfortable leather sofas, satellite TV and DVD player. To the right is a games room with table tennis and table football. Ahead is a massive kitchen which stretches the length of the house and opens directly onto the garden through two huge doorways. At one end is the kitchen with contemporary quality fittings, topped with local stone and an island unit with stools on one side. There is a small fridge here, cooker and dishwasher. In the middle of the room, a huge dining table made especially for Laguscello by a local carpenter, seats 12 comfortably. It stretches towards a cosy seating area in front of an open fire. There is a separate, fully equipped utility room with large fridge freezer, microwave, washing machine and dryer, plus a shower room/wc on the ground floor. Upstairs are four big, airy bedrooms, to sleep 8-10 people + baby (free cot available), each with an en-suite bathroom. One has its own balcony with a table and chairs. There are two single beds which can be used for children/teenagers sharing a room. All the rooms are exceptionally spacious with traditional beamed ceilings and handmade cotto floors. Decoration is simple with clean white walls and pale grey paintwork on doors and shuttered windows. All windows have fly screens and there are room fans - although Laguscello's walls are so thick, that the rooms stay cool, even during the height of summer. White bed linen and towels are provided and there are plenty of books, toys and board games, plus unlimited wi-fi inside and out. The original outdoor pizza oven is a great favourite with guests and can also be used for roasting meat as well as for experimenting with pizzas! Many guests find they love Laguscello's pool, garden and amenities so much, that they can barely tear themselves away to explore the many wonderful sights close by or a little further afield - including Rome and Florence, which can be enjoyed for a day out by train from nearby Orvieto station. The Little House, built in 1924 and attached to one end of the main farmhouse, offers additional accommodation for up to four people for parties renting the main farmhouse only - please ask Jane and Peter for details if you might be interested in adding this to your booking. It works especially well if your party has several generations - as a bolthole for grandparents maybe - or several families. The Little House has its own entrance through a covered terrace with table and chairs and with the front door opening directly into the pretty kitchen. Although simple it is fully equipped, including a hob and oven, washing machine and dishwasher, with a dining table in front of a wood burning stove. An archway leads through to the lounge with windows on two sides capturing the evening sunshine. Upstairs is a spacious main bedroom with king size bed and French doors leading onto the large first floor terrace with breathtaking views on three sides. There is also a smaller room with a double bed, which also has its own door to the terrace. There is a shared bathroom with a large walk-in shower. All bedrooms at rooms at Laguscello have free-standing fans and every window has a flyscreen. The Little House can be rented in winter and has a wood burning stove, which also heats the water and radiators - logs are provided.

About the neighbourhood
Laguscello is just a five minute drive from its nearest village, Castel Giorgio with everything you need from bakeries and a butcher to bars. You can pop in for fresh bread to take home for breakfast and sample stunning coffee at Bar Asterix - or combine shopping with an early evening aperitif, sitting on the errace (one gin and tonic will definitely be enough!). The large supermarkets in Orvieto Scalo are a 10 minute drive - take in stunning views of Orvieto on the drive down! The house is reached from a road which leads to Castel Giorgio in one direction and to the main Orvieto to Viterbo road in the other. You follow a track from the road through a pretty wood before emerging into open countryside. Laguscello commanding views across rolling countryside - the fields which surround the...
How to get there
Rome Ciampino and Fiumicino airports are both a 90 minute drive, via the A1 motorway. Perugia airport is a little closer and Pisa provides a third alternative at a two hour drive away. All airports offer an extensive choice of car hire. Fiumicino airport also has a frequent rail connection into Rome, with a direct, one-hour 20 minute train service from the same railway station to Orvieto. There is a car hire office directly opposite Orvieto station - a 10-15 minute drive to Laguscello, which is just off the main road linking Siena with Viterbo.
