The landscape of Lazio is renowned for its undulating hills and mountains. However, if you rent near the coast, the land flattens and and the mountain ranges transform into wide-reaching plains. There are beautiful lakes and parks here with abundant greenery, flora and fauna. There is the Villa Borghese, the Regional Natural Park of Castelli Romani, Lake Bracciano and Bolsena that you can marvel at during your stay in your Lazio accommodation. Self-catering in Italy with NOVASOL means a real choice of wonderful apartments and villas in Lazio that can be booked all year round.
