Our holiday in the cottage was excellent. The cottage itself was comfortable and had everything you could need, including a BBQ and built in pizza oven.The swimming pool and views of the lake were brilliant, and it was close to the town and the lake.
The owner's 2 dogs were very friendly and welcoming.
We spent most of our time at the cottage, enjoying the tranquil surroundings , visiting the local bars and restaurants in Bracciano, overall it was absolutely idyllic.
Would definitely return, hopefully soon.

“Excellent, relaxing holiday”

person found this review helpful

We have just got back from a wonderful week staying at the cottage by Lake Bracciano. The house, pool and view down towards the lake were everything and more than we had hoped for.

It is the most beautiful, romantic spot and Fiorenza, the owner is so hospitable (speaking good English) and the two dogs were adorable. The very best thing about the cottage though is the wonderful pool which our two daughters loved. My husband and I spent some really relaxing days by the pool admiring the view. At night, the castle which you can see clearly from the pool side is lit up and is stunning!

The house is small but nicely furnished with everything one needs. Bracciano is a short walk away up some steep steps behind the house and it is a beautiful Italian town with some great restaurants.

We went into Rome on the train twice and had a great time seeing the sights - Rome is amazing!

I would thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to visit Bracciano - it is a gem and we had a truly wonderful holiday there.

I stayed here towards the end of July for one week with my family and we had a fantastic time. The cottage itself is quite small and compact and very basic but it has everything you need. There is a double bed and a pullout sofa bed where our children slept and we were all very comfortable. The bathroom is nice with a spacious shower.
The outside space is what sells this property, and let's be honest, you don't go on holiday to stay indoors. The cottage and pool are on the property of the owner (Fiorenza) who lives In the large house, the garden is very big and really well maintained. Fiorenza is lovely and speaks English and was very helpful throughout our stay. There are tomato plants in the garden and various herbs which you can use for cooking. There is a covered seating area outside which seats six and a pizza oven. There is also an outside sink which was very useful. The pool is the best part though and this was the main reason for us staying here. My children loved it and were in it all day while we relaxed on the loungers!
The only negative that I can think of are the mosquitoes. Sprays and plug-ins are a must!
There are also two gorgeous dogs (Bendico and Chloe) who live on the property and are very friendly but they do make their presence known so if you're not a dog lover this might be a problem.
We didn't hire a car as we hadn't planned on doing any sightseeing but we did walk up to Bracciano nearly every day. It only takes about ten minutes. There is a short cut up some quite steep steps but then you're on the main road which takes you to the centre. Bracciano is a gorgeous town with lots of bars and restaurants. We especially liked the very old part near the castle and we had lunch at the 'Trattoria del Castello' twice because it was so good.
The walk down the hill to the lake takes about 15 minutes and again there are bars and restaurants and lots of beach areas to sunbathe and swim in the lake.
If you just want a relaxing holiday this is the perfect place to stay. We loved it!

Having been to a number of cottages in Spain and France, this cottage came as a complete surprise. Nestled below the imposing Bracciano castle with a view of lake Bracciano, it is a charming escape from reality. The cottage is on the property of the owner, but you have full access to the gardens, the tomato and herb patches, the outdoor BBQ and pizza oven, and exclusive access to the pool. The owner is a lovely Italian lady who speaks decent English. The property comes with two friendly dogs. The property sleeps 4 but is in fact a double bed and a sleeper couch in a single studio-type room, so is quite snug. Lots to in the vicinity, and Rome is easily accessible by train.

WARNING- mosquitoes!!! Come prepared.

If you want away from it all but be close enough to explore the area this is the place. We hired a car which allowed us to see quite a bit of the area. The cottage is home from home everything you could possibly want or need. The owner Fiorenza is very kind and helpfull and her two dogs are just gorgeous. Thanks again for a relaxing peaceful holiday.

This place is idyllic, 10 mins walk to lake and 10 mins walk to Castle and Bracciano. Perfect for day trips to Rome - only 3 euros to to Rome and all round Rome using bus or trains. It is very private, has its own pool. The lake is lovely to swim in, no motorised water sports, just pedalos, canoes, sailing boats. Fiorenza (the owner) cannot do enough for you, and there are 2 soppy, friendly dogs whom you will fall in love with. I don't usually go to the same place twice, but I will definitely be going back there. There is so much to see and do, a perfect balance between sightseeing and exercise and relaxation. Highly recommended.

This is the second time we have stayed at the cottage by the lake in Bracciano. We truly love it here. The cottage is located In Bracciano, and it takes only 15 minutes to walk into the main town, with its castle ( where tom cruise got married and also Bernie Eccostone s daughter!!!) . It only takes 5 or so minutes to walk down the hill to the lake, which is very clean, and lovely for a swim, or you can take a boat ride around it for 5 euros! In bracciano town you can catch the train into rome for 3 euros pp each way!!
The Cottage is beautiful, perfect for 2 people. It is all in one room, like a little bungalow, and very cosy, the outside space is amazing, theres a really big pool just for your sole use, and even your own pizza oven to make traditional pizzas. At night time you can see the lights from the village across the lake! The house is located in an enclosed large garden, where the owner , Fiorenza lives, with her two dogs, who are gorgeous and very friendly! It is a very quiet, peaceful, location, a really special place to go.
