The lake is situated in northern Lazio, in the main caldera of the volcanic group Vulsinio. It’s elliptical in shape with a surface of 114.5 square km and a max depth of 151 m. There are a number of volcanic sand beaches around the lake and some areas offer watersport facilities. It has a reputation as one of Europe’s cleanest lakes and swimming is common.
Viterbo Hotbaths 30 minutes drive from Le Pietre
Of the half-dozen wild spas in the region, this may be best known and the easiest to find, just off the main road as you head toward the town of Tuscania among a smattering of Roman ruins. The four pools, of varying temperatures and sizes, are set into a gentle white knoll. Heaps of steam waft from a fenced-off hole atop a hill channeling 140-degree water to the pools.
Orvieto 45 minutes drive from Le Pietre
A number of Etruscan remains testify to the importance of Orvieto, even before Roman rule. They are the Necropoli del Crocifisso del Tufo burial grounds at the base of the plateau on which the city stands – (Loc. San Martino – Orvieto Scalo), and fascinating underground passages beneath the city.
Le Pietre offers a one double bed apartment on the top floor of the farm house with its own independent external entrance and easy access to the swimming pool and garden. It has at its disposal all commodities such as shower, linen and towels, hairdryer, TV, fridge, cooking unit, BBQ, swimming pool and small terrace with a stunning panoramic view.
