The villa is beautiful... clean, lots of space inside and out and well equipped for a group of 8. The pool and terrace area are fantastic.. we enjoyed lots of long lunches and lazy afternoons there. Floriana was extremely helpful. We would recommend a visit and swim at Lake Bolsena. So glad we discovered this villa.
Thankyou so much for your lovely review. We’re so glad you enjoyed our house as much as we do!
Amazing holiday Villa
We had a wonderful time here. A family of eight sharing my wife's fortieth birthday. The Villa is amazing. The pool was refreshing, but it was late October! The views are spectacular having evening meals on the rear patio. Florence is only two hours drive away and Rome only just over an hour. Amazing places to visit nearby also. Overall, we had a brilliant time. The weather was a warm 21c most days.
Brilliant holiday in lovely villa.
Casa Glenister is the perfect villa for family holidays. There were ten in our party - 6 adults and 4 children. The villa is very comfortable and well kitted out with all necessary conveniences. The large pool is superb, set in a huge garden, and the views from the terraces are magnificent. There are plenty of interesting places to visit within easy reach including Lake Vico, Lake Bolsena, Orvieto, Viterbo and of course, Rome.
Perfect villa, perfect location, perfect holiday!
We had a fantastic stay in Casa Glenister. The villa was great and we spent many an hour in the pool and also in the games room playing table tennis. The kitchen had recently been refurbished and we mostly self catered. The local Coop in Soriano had everything we needed. We did try out the local pizzeria, which was very reasonable also. Flori was really helpful and made some great suggestions for excursions. We went to the sculpture park in Bomarzo, went to the forests (La Faggeta) on the Cimino mountain, the lake at Bolsena, and some of the party took a day trip to Rome. The weather was perfect with a lovely breeze, which meant the heat never became too much. Ingrid and Pete were great at ensuring we had everything we needed to know before we set off, and with Flori being nearby we always felt like we could seek advice or recommendations. I cannot recommend this villa highly enough, and I'm certain we will return again as we felt we had only just scratched the surface of things to do around Soriano.
Refreshing and relaxing stay
Our family of 7, from age 14 to grandparents, had the good fortune of staying at Casa Glenister in June 2016. After a week visiting big tourist cities it was refreshing to spend the next week relaxing at this beautiful villa.
The location is outstanding with the views, comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen, and we made good use of the games, DVDs and especially the pool.
Floriana was a real treasure with her help. She offered many suggestions of places to visit, which we did and enjoyed. She assisted with our getting a phone card and arranging a taxi. She speaks perfect English.
We recommend having a car, however if you get it in Orte be aware that they do not speak English.
Our favorite place to eat was the local pizzaria, Scacco Matto, wonderful food and the nicest people.
Pete and Ingrid were great to work with in their communication with us.
We would love to come stay here again.
Lovely property but some drawbacks.
Lovely bedrooms and lounge but kitchen was very small for 9 people. Wasn`t very suitable for small children (ours were 2, 3 and 5). We
had to barricade the bars in the play area upstairs as they could squeeze through and fall on to the stairs.Pool and grounds were attractive. The children enjoyed collecting hazelnuts. Unfortunately we could not eat outside in the evening because of mosquitoes.As there was hardly any mosquito protection on the windows or doors it could get very hot and unpleasant particularly in the kitchen.
Floriana was marvellous, very helpful, made a list of places the children might like (they especially liked the `Monster Park`).
We went to Soriano,Viterbo,Orte and also Orvieto which we thought was delightful.(over 50mins according to Google Maps-not 30).
We didn`t realise we even had to cook in bottled water - takes a lot of water for pasta for 9. We found it a nuisance having to collect water all the time.We would have preferred to be told about the water and the 100 euros cleaning fee BEFORE finally booking.
In response I would just like to point out a few points.
In regard of the cleaning , it was stated in the information on the Homeaway website that cleaning is charged on arrival. This is normal for this kind of property. I am sorry you didn't find that section - it is less clearly found since the website structure has been changed! We will be at pains to explicitly point it out to future guests.
The cooking water issue is very common in this (and many other ) parts of Italy. Here the local water comes from volcanic rocks and therefore requires purification. It is distributed free to all the locals (and so our guests) and so does need to be collected. It means you don't need to buy bottled water.
I'm sorry that you struggled with mosquitoes. We normally have very few because of where we are. I'm minded that none of our previous guests have had the same problems, above and beyond what anybody would expect on a mediterranean holiday. When it is hot our previous guests with children have normally eaten outside having taken appropriate precautions, as we do.There are mosquito tablet machines in every room provided free, and pendant insect prevention screnes on both outside doors downstairs. This normally allows very good ventilation of the downstairs area without very unsightly mosquito mesh on the windows.
Again I'm afraid nobody has had a problem with the banister over the stairs before, but we will be at pains to address any safety issue regarding children finding their way between them when we visit next week. I'm sorry if this was a worry.
We are glad you liked the house, grounds pool and surrounding area.
