The stunning view of Il Caminetto Resort
by Monica Rozzi
If Tuscia is often considered a hidden gem in Italy, the region has one of its own. Il Caminetto Resort is located between the ancient town of Montesfiascone and Bolsena. Here, you can stay for a weekend, enjoy aperitivo, tea, or a lovely dinner with a truly one-of-a-kind view of the sunset on Lake Bolsena.
I went to Il Caminetto in late September with some of my family members visiting me. After hearing much praise for the establishment, we decided to go for dinner. As I entered through the main doors, I felt quite relaxed. The layout is very elegant yet cozy with lots of light shining in through the windows. We were welcomed to sit at the opposite side of the entrance where there were couches and a closer view of the lake. It was about 6:30 in the evening and we arrived just in time to view the much-acclaimed sunset as we sipped on Aperol Spritz. The view was breath-taking. The sun casually descended behind the landscape across from the lake that sparkled from the last rays of the sun. I suggest going before dinner to enjoy every phase of the sundown as each minute creates a new and beautiful perspective of the same view.
As it was already low season, there were only a few other guests enjoying dinner. I’m sure it is livelier in the summer time, but it was nice to be in a quiet atmosphere. With a friendly staff, delicious food, and tranquil environment, I would highly recommend paying Il Caminetto Resort a visit.
