It is one of the most evocative lakes of volcanic origin in Italy; today I tell you where to sleep in Bolsena if you want to immerse yourself in a familiar and ancient atmosphere, with a particular eye to design.
Want to know where to sleep in Bolsena? I tell you now, you have to go to Casale 1541, a bed & breakfast located a few steps from the lake, family run!
And what a family! It seems to have ended up in a fairy tale.
First of all, there is Anthea, my fashion blogger pal who, being an architect, has personally overseen the internal and external renovation of the farmhouse, making it a small design jewel.
And then there is her family: mother, father and brother who orbit the farmhouse making the life of those who stay there more pleasant and easy.
Il Casale 1541 is one of the most historic places where to sleep in Bolsena
The photos were taken inside the breakfast room, which as you can see is furnished in shabby chic style and offers lots of goodies for a really top breakfast, all with local products!
The renovation of the Casale 1541 in Bolsena has maintained the historical characteristics of the building
The interior furnishings have mostly used the existing materials.
From the vats used as a support for the sinks to the miller’s ladder, to the chandeliers all different and made with pieces found in the old farmhouse.
Each room is decorated differently and has its own bathroom with shower, TV, air conditioning, hairdryer and wi-fi.
There is the room of the farmer, the miller, the stable boy and so on.
What to do in Bolsena
Lake Bolsena offers many water and non-water activities and at Casale 1541 they will tell you exactly what you can do, including the possibility of a nice horse ride or a visit to the ancient medieval village.
The surroundings of Bolsena are very suggestive, in addition to Civita di Bagnoregio and Viterbo it is also possible to easily reach Orvieto.
I was there on a particular occasion, together with my cousin Esmeralda, Meggy Frij and Claudia, author of these shots.
A new project is about to start, a very interesting and promising project of which the 3 fashion influencers will talk to you very soon!
So if you want to have a nice weekend in this beautiful lake and you don’t know where to sleep in Bolsena, I really recommend you try the Casale 1541, but hurry up because otherwise I will eat everything myself !!!
