Description from owner

Villa Orvieto lies near the medieval city of Orvieto in Umbria. This region is justifiably described as the "green heart of Italy." Located in a beautiful setting, Villa Orvieto is conveniently situated within daytrip distance of Montelpulciano, Pienza, Montalcino, and all of the enchanting hill towns of southern Tuscany, as well as all of Umbria. Popular landmarks include Todi, Spoleto, Assisi, Perugia and Pienza, but it is also possible to wander away from the beaten tourist track to explore hidden gems like Civita di Bagnoregio, in Lazio, or the spectacular gardens of Villa Lante and Castello Ruspoli di Vignanello, near Viterbo. If you don't want to drive, you can take a train to Rome in about an hour. The closest towns are Guardea, Baschi and Montecchio.

Villa Orvieto is a luxuriously restored stone farmhouse surrounded by rolling hills and olive grove. The excellent taste of its owners is reflected throughout the house in a wonderful balance of antique furniture combined with modern

Villa Orvieto is a luxuriously restored stone farmhouse surrounded by rolling hills and olive grove. The excellent taste of its owners is reflected throughout the house in a wonderful balance of antique furniture combined with modern conveniences, including Internet WIFI connection and air condition. The property consists of of two adjacent stone houses: the main house sleeps up to ten guests and a smaller guest house sleeps four. The two stone houses are located just 10 metres from each other, connected by a charming pergola. The main house can be rented alone for ten or less people (closing the guest house).

Outside there is an elegantly furnished loggia with couches and open views over the countryside, a second outdoor living room and a pergola just off of the kitchen furnished with table and chairs for fourteen people. A few steps from the house is a panoramic swimming pool and a tennis court. The house is surrounded by a manicured garden of roses, lavender and other flowers.

In Orvieto, dont miss the fanciful Gothic Duomo, which soars seven stories high. Inside are magnificently vibrant and graphic frescoes of the Apocalypse by Luca Signorelli.

In Todi you´ll find all the main sights conveniently concentrated onto the Gothic Piazza del Popolo, which is itself set over top of an ancient Roman cistern system. Below town is the striking Renaissance church of Santa Maria della Consolazione.

In Deruta, stroll the color-splashed streets where Italys most famous hand-made ceramics are produced.

In Perugia, be sure to see the frescoes by local artist Pietro Perugino in the Galleria Nazionale dell´Umbria and in the town halls Sala del Cambio. Step back to ancient times at the Etruscan arch and Etruscan well. Enjoy the lively atmosphere at the large fountain, the Fontana Maggiore. Sample the chocolates named for the city. Perugia plays host to international visitors with its acclaimed annual Umbria Jazz Festival, held each July. A wildly popular chocolate festival every October pays homage to the citys sweet side.

In Spoleto, visit the Roman theater and the archeological museum for a view of ancient Umbria. Go see the pre-Renaissance frescoes by Fra Lippo Lippi and Pinturicchio. The church of San Salvatore is one of Italys oldest and is set within the remains of an ancient Roman temple. Spoleto offers up culture, dramatic performances and musical concerts during the Festival dei Due Mondi.

In Assisi, you´ll want to visit the famous basilica dedicated to Italys patron saint, Francis. Frescoes by Giotto vividly tell the story of St. Franciss life. In the Piazza del Comune you´ll find a church inserted into the remains of the ancient Temple of Minerva. Above town stands the Rocca Maggiore, a fortress that protected citizens during attacks. For a dose of nature and spiritual contemplation, walk to the hermitage, the Eremo dell Carceri. Assisi: Festival Calendimaggio, held on 1-5 May, is a re-enactment of medieval and Renaissance life in the form of a challenge between the upper faction and the lower faction of the town. It includes processions, theatrical presentations, flag-weavers and dances.

Gubbio is so perfect, it looks like a medieval movie set. The main monuments and sightseeings of the city include the Roman Theatre which is still in use for performances, the massive Palazzo dei Consoli, the duomo and the Palazzo Ducale. Gubbio is best known for its palio, the Corsa dei Ceri, a spectacular run held every year on May 15, in which three teams run through throngs of cheering supporters up much of the mountain from the main square in front of the Palazzo dei Consoli to the basilica of S. Ubaldo, each team carrying a statue of their saint. Gubbios Roman theatre is a dramatic setting for summertime, open-air performances.

Visit charming Città di Castello, which packs a lot into such a small town, with palaces, churches, towers, and of course- a castle, all sitting pretty and begging to be explored.
