How is the climate in the Lake Bolsena area?
Summers are warm and dry, while the winters typically are mild and moderate. The large volcanic lake creates a microclimate that gives many days with nice weather all year round. The lake is about 300 meters above sea level, and a constant, natural breeze makes even the warmest summer days a bit fresh.
Where can we swim?
Lake Bolsena is not only the biggest but is also held to be the cleanest volcanic lake of Europe, due to the fact that there is no significant source of pollution around the lake. The nearest beach is minutes away from the guesthouse, and around the lake there are numerous other beaches, including free public beaches and serviced beaches with all facilities. In the area there are also several thermal hot springs, open all year, and family water parks with facilities for all ages. Ask us for more information.
