KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Situated in the rolling countryside of Southern Tuscany and the Alta Tuscia, Tetti Marquet is located at the crossroads of Tuscany, Lazio and Umbria and is within an easy 10 minute drive of Lake Bolsena.
The small town of Onano is within walking distance of the cottage and has a range of small shops, cafe/bar, small supermarket and a pizzeria. Aquapendente is a five minute drive and has all the facilities expected of a small town, including a weekly market and two supermarkets. Local restaurants offer a treat for the tastebuds and there are plenty of low cost trattoria and pizzerias to be found around the lake and in the nearby towns and villages.
Lake Bolsena provides beaches for lazing and picnics, a wide range of water sports, spectacular scenery and three thriving little towns, Bolsena, Marta and Capodimonte. Bolsena itself has a good range of shops, a weekly market, a museum full of Etruscan relics, a fine medieval castle, picturesque alleys and two early churches. To the south is Viterbo with its papal palace and Tarquinia with its fascinating necropolis. To the west you will find Sorano and Pitigliano: The approach to Pitigliano in particular is one of the most spectacular sights anywhere in Italy. To the east, Civita di Bagnoregio and Orvieto, with its spectacular Duomo, are not to be missed.
A holiday at Tetti Marquet is to enjoy a laid-back way of life whilst having some of the finest old towns and a wealth of sightseeing opportunities nearby. Onsite are just the two self catering cottages and the owners house. The swimming pool is for your own private use when the cottages are rented together.
The owner of Tetti Marquet has asked us to make you aware that she does have 3 small dogs and a cat. The dogs are usually kept in their own area on the other side of her garden, but as there is no fence between Tetti Marquet and her cottage, it is quite possible that you may see the cat around.
