Anyone familiar with Lake Bracciano area?

Jump to last reply

A good friend is celebrating a significant birthday next June, 2013. We're looking into renting a larger property (villa?) in which to house his partners-in-crime and their spouses, and/or grown children, as we celebrate. Our group size may be anywhere from six to twelve adults. We will probably rent at least two cars.

Accessibility to major airports and cities, yet with a dramatic setting and affordability, are key considerations. Some properties in the vicinity of Lake Bracciano seem to qualify. Rome, Fiumicino, and Viterbo are each an hour or so away by train. The websites also mention private beaches and show beautiful lakeside vistas. A couple of these properties are in or near Trevignano Romano, in Lazio.

Not being familiar at all with this region, I wonder about the actual nature of the lake and beaches, the towns in and around, and the ease of connecting to Rome by train for daytrips or overnight excursions. If anyone knows the area, especially the desirability of Lake Bracciano and its nearby towns as rental and touring destinations, will you please share your knowledge with me (us)? Are there any especially desirable spots around here where we should look more closely? Always grateful for any help and suggestions from you.
