Location description from owner

The Umbria region

This characteristic stone hamlet lies 200 meters from the charming village of Montecchio in a hilly and quiet location, halfway the beautiful cities of Orvieto and Todi (both around 25 kms far away) and 35 kms from the sand beaches of the Bolsena lake. From the villa you have a panoramic sight on the valley of the Tevere and the villaghe self. The location allows to quickly reach the principal cultural and naturalistic beauties of Umbria, Rome and northern Lazio, southern Tuscany (from the villa in around 25 minutes driving you are on the motorway Rome-Florence).

Montecchio

In Umbria, a region that has gained a name for being the green heart of Italy, tourism is growing because of the unfamiliar harmony between nature, antiquities, historic centres and culture. The quiet of the countryside, good provisions and an inimitable cuisine are the great draw. This region is less touristy than Tuscany and this is especially appreciated by many tourists.

Southern/centre Umbria forms an ideal starting point for enjoying the peace of the surrounding hilly and mountainous landscape and on the other hand making trips to beautifull towns like Todi, Orvieto, Narni, Spoleto, Perugia, Gubbio, Assisi. There are also numerous charming little villages – many of medieval origin - as Amelia, Labro, Spello, Norcia, Bevagna, Montefalco to visit.

In many towns and villages you can taste local dishes or buy local wines and olive oil (generally of excellent quality). You can also easily visit – in day trips - famous towns and charming villages in the southern part of Tuscany such as Siena, Arezzo, San Giminiano, Pienza, Cortona, Sinalunga, etc. Many tourists visit also Rome from here (without staying in the city which is very hot in summer) once or more times. It is possible to go by car (journey of 1h-1h30) or by train from the stations of: Terni, Narni-Amelia, Orte & Orvieto. We must not forget the mountains with some splendid woods, e.g. Terminillo (up to 2000 metres by car). In around 1 hour it is possible to reach the shimmering lakes of Bracciano, Vico, Piediluco, Bolsena and Trasimeno. The Mediterranean Sea (mostly sand beaches) situated between Tarquinia and Chiarone are 90-120 Kms away (around 1h20-1h40 driving). Near the city of Terni you can also visit the Marmore falls (165 meters, one of the highest of Europe), there is nearby also a rafting/canoeing/hydrospeed center.

Lago di Bolsena (35 kms) is Italy's largest lake formed in the crater of an extinct volcano. The water of Bolsena is so clear, in fact, that it is completely safe to drink it. The local government has gone to great efforts to maintain the lake's natural purity; a technologically advanced purification system has eliminated the errors that might have been made before pollution-awareness was so developed. Luckily no industrial development mars Bolsena's shores, nor its views, and the gently sloping nature of the encircling land limits the amount of spill-off and soil erosion which could effect the water's transparency. The native fisherman still use the lake's water to make the local culinary specialty - a fish soup called sbrosia - a rarity to find.The lake is 12 km. long and 14 km. wide, with a maximum depth of 151 meters. The most important town on the lake is called Bolsena. Like so much of Italy, it bears the signs of almost every important period of the Italian peninsula, going back as far as the Iron Age and progressing through the times of the martyrs, catacombs and miracles and on to the Middle Ages. The Rocca Monaldeschi della Cervara sits at the top of the hill, overlooking the medieval quarter of town. The castle was built between the 12th and 14th centuries. It has been completely renovated and since 1991 has housed the Museo Territoriale del Lago di Bolsena (Lake Bolsena Territorial Museum). The museum is well laid out; each of its three floors is dedicated to various aspects of Bolsena's history, ranging from its prehistoric volcanic origins to its Etruscan-Roman period. A walk along the ramparts of the castle offers a gorgeous view of the entire lake and should not be missed. The Church of St. Christine is the town's other major site. It is a Romanesque church built in 1078 in a typical basilica style over the catacombs where St. Christine, a young woman martyred during the reign of the Roman Emperor Diocletian, was buried. From April to September, excursion boats depart Bolsena town headed for Bisentina and Martana, the islands in the lake. Both are privately owned and Martana is not open to the public, but Bisentina is an ex-summer residence of the Popes and has a large church on it. There are also seven small chapels built around the island. Don't think that Bolsena is just for history and culture buffs. It is also ideal for swimming, sailing, relaxation and dining. One of my fondest memories is having a delicious meal of grilled coregone (a local fish from the lake) at one of the many unpretentious restaurants lined up along the shore. If you happen to find one that's serving sbrosia, consider it your lucky day.

Orvieto (20 kms) is a place of great historical importance. So you see tourists the whole year round. Lots of them only visit the well known cathedral, the cathedral square and the central street full of ceramics and souvenir shops. They are wrong, because there is a lot more to see in this city and even more in the surrounding area. You have to go right through Orvieto to get a real impression of the unfamiliar setting of the city and the gleaming city walls on the volcanic tuff stone hill, plus characteristic monuments and museums with Etruscan finds.

“Ideal for family”

Reviewed 1 Sep 2015

This is a really beautiful house for famlly, couples or also for teenargers. The good thing in that house is that you have a bathroom per bedroom. You can enjoy of a cosy kitchen. The swimmingpool lies near the house. The see on the valley of Montecchio is wonderful. People who live there are welcoming. The owner is sympatic. This is a typical itilian village so there are no shops or others. Be carefull for mosquitoes, there are a lot!

“Perfect villa next to Umbrian village!”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2015

We (4 adults, 4 children aged 7-12) were looking for a villa in Umbria within a walking distance from a village. Our previous villas have been a little bit further, and this time we wanted something quite near to a village or city. We were first a little bit hesitant about this villa, since there were no previous reviews. Things turned out to be perfect! Finding the owners and communicating with them (Claudia does not speak too much English) was a little bit tricky, but checking in went fine despite this. We got the wi-fi we requested (with 20 euro extra) for and worked well enough during our stay. The villa is 200-300 meters from Montecchio, a small Umbrian hilltop town with a couple of supermarkets, butcheries, a lively bar (which seems to be the hotspot of activity in the village) and a couple of restaurants. You can get what you need in Montecchio, but bigger shopping we did in Coop of Orvieto. The villa in itself is really nice and well equipped. It has 5 bedrooms, and can house 10 people easily. The villa was well cleaned when we arrived. The kitchen is fully equipped, and you have enough of plates, glasses, forks and so on (this is not always so, according to our experience). You have a beautiful view to the valley. The pool is big enough, and next to the villa so that you can sip your Campari in peace while the kids are swimming. We really needed the pool, since it was between 33 and 38 degrees celsius during our stay! The rubbish collection system in Montecchio is a little complicated - mixed waste is collected only once per week, biowaste three times per week, and so on. You dump your waste to the bin at the villa gate. There are instructions (in Italian) in the villa, English might be a little better. We got additional information from Casamerina as we needed, no problem in there. Driving to and from the villa can be a little hair-raising, as the hillside is pretty steep and the "street" is quite narrow. But you get used to this after a while in Umbria. I really don 't have too much to complain about the villa. You could have better grilling equipment, and you tend to capture a lot of insects and stuff in the pool, but other than that - nothing to complain! The pool guy visited once during our one-week stay. This villa really delivers what is promised. It is next to a nice small hilltop town with a medieval center, restaurant La Perla is very worth visiting if you are feeling lazy (try risotto funghi porcini there - it is heavenly). There is a lot to see nearby (Civita di Bagnoregio, Orvieto, Spoleto, Marmore falls, "Monster park" in Bomarzo, Villa Lante in Bagnaia, to name a few), so you can easily spend a week or two in the area. Highly recommended - great quality for the price!
