Client Reviews for La Gioia

I have used Vintage Travel several times as the properties and locations are always far superior to other villa sites I have used before. The information and support from the Vintage team is also excellent. La Gioia in Lazio was amazing. The villa itself was huge and so well equipped and the views were stunning, even better than the pictures on the web site. Panoramic views of the lake and surrounding area plus beautiful sun sets every night. The location was superb (very private) and it was so pleasant and easy to walk from the property along side the Castle in to Town to eat and ideally situated for visiting the many other places we wanted to see which we did and enjoyed immensely. I even cooked meals at the property because the kitchen was excellent.

We have had an absolutely superb holiday - thank you!! - It began with the arrival of the holiday info pack which was super, with lots of important details and helpful info. On arrival the villa surpassed our expectations - great spot, well stocked, beautifully maintained. Bolsena was a delight to explore-very friendly locals, beautifully preserved architecture and excellent food. It was like stepping back in time wandering through the medieval alleys in Bolsena. To wake up to the view from the villa each morning , overlooking the lake was like having a little slice of heaven every day. So relaxing. And when we could tear ourselves away-we had a few wonderful days out- to Orvieto, Bagnoregio and Rome - Wow! Thank you so much-we could not have asked for a better holiday.

La Gioia is very special indeed. Breath taking views across Lake Bolsena which changed throughout the day from spectacular sunrises to sunsets. The villa is superbly equipped modern and spacious. It's built to make the most of its superb vista. Lots of places to visit around the lake all so pretty and unspoilt. Orvieto is close by...a must see. Paola the housekeeper is very helpful and friendly. Practical note the Coop Supermarket in Bolsena is very handy and well stocked. 2nd time with VT, the website photos and info are always accurate and the travel pack is comprehensive and reassuring. We hope to return to this villa it truly was wonderful.

Superb property in an outstanding location, we hope to return one day. Thank you Vintage Travel this one is a gem!

This villa is exceptional and the local area quite charming. We had such a lovely holiday. Only one minor 'technical' problem in the very modern kitchen, which was quickly resolved by Sally, our friendly local rep and Paola, the housekeeper. A very memorable visit to Italy. Thank you.

The house was beautiful,excellent location. Very well equipped. We had no negative comments and would definitely use Vintage travel again.

La Gioia is a beautiful villa - the best view from anywhere we have ever stayed! The villa was designed to maximise your ability to enjoy that view. We were impressed by the standard of the kitchen, the wifi and the TV set up.

La Gioia is beautifully set overlooking Lake Bolsena. It is completely private with no villas nearby. A steep walk into Bolsena and you will find lots of lovely restaurants, fresh pasta shops and bakeries. The villa was well equip with numerous DVD's, books and games, so you don't really need to take anything, as well as a Bowers & Wilkins Zepplin speaker for an iPod. Sadly had to use the local hospital in Orvieto who were amazing, Sally the local rep was extremely helpful in supporting us. Only downside was no aircon but fans in all bedrooms. Would definitely consider another visit!

Bolsena is such a lovely and unspoilt town hopefully it will stay that way. La Gioia is our favourite villa to stay in, we have tried others but they do not compare. Also I would like to say how helpful Paola the house manager was

This was the holiday from heaven. Superb property and location. The most fabulous pool which was appreciated from without and within. The panoramic view of the lake and surrounding area was an absolute delight and constantly changed throughout the day. The villa could not have been better. We have all returned to our busy lives relaxed and rejuvenated. We would all highly recommend this wonderful place. Thank you again to Paola for her help. PS We had a superb day at Terme dei Papi outside Viterbo.
