Local Information

The glow of the small city of Orvieto is beautiful from every angle. With architecture reminiscent of both Florence and Rome, its exquisite cathedral façade reflects the golden light of sunset like few others in the world. There are lots of shops and bars/restaurants, fabulous delis and wonderful bakeries. Well worth a visit.

Just east of Orvieto and only 35km from the villa you’ll find Todi. Perched on a lofty hilltop, high above the winding River Tiber, Todi’s tumbling traditional architecture makes it one of Umbria’s prettiest towns. Once a simple agricultural town, today’s gentrified Todi is a trendy retreat for foreign expats and Rome’s arts and media types. At its heart, the lovely Piazza del Popolo has plenty of good cafés and restaurants, plus you can climb the tower of San Fortunato church for fabulous views. Once you arrive, bypass the city gates and use the well signposted Porta Orvietana car park instead. Rather than having to climb the seriously steep hill into the centre, you will instead be able to ride up in style via the (free) lift.

Our View

This beautiful three-story villa, set in the rolling Umbrian hills, has been restored from its original stone building, giving it a unique contemporary look, but in no way disguising its roots.

The four spacious bedrooms take up the upper two floors of the original building, with the living space stretching out across the extended new build ground floor.

The glass effect of the downstairs interior makes the flow between inside and outside completely effortless. Relax with a glass of wine in the garden room and enjoy the balance of the indoor / outdoor experience that the Crittal style windows and doors offer.
