Orvieto apartment description

Located in the historical center of Orvieto - just minutes from the Duomo, main shopping areas & restaurants - this apartment is your home away from home. It's a short distance from the train station & is the ideal place to stay while you explore Orvieto as well as other cities in Umbria, Tuscany or other regions of Italy.

The apartment is quite spacious with a kitchen, dining/living room, 2 full bathrooms, 3 bedrooms:1 room with a king size bed & 2 rooms with 2 single beds & also another single bed that can be moved into any of the rooms to accommodate a 7th person. The apartment also has a terrace overlooking the picturesque countryside and offers invaluable views of the surrounding land. The kitchen is fully equipped with a refrigerator, 4-burner gas stove, electric oven, dishwasher, french press and a clothes-washing machine.


The apartment is located in a small piazza where street parking is available should you need it and also has free Wi-Fi. It is conveniently located and easy to navigate the beautiful streets of Orvieto where you will find many typical restaurants, taverns, pizzerias, internet points and any sort of shops you may need.

The apartment is all on one level but there are a few flights of stairs (1 inside the foyer to get to the apartment) to climb but they are not very steep. As soon as you step out of the building you can find a city filled with art, history, and beautiful architecture as well as places to relax, eat, drink and enjoy the traditional things that make Orvieto one of the most enchanting cities waiting for you to discover it!

My name is Fabio and I am 34 years old. My family has owned this apartment since 1998 but it has been in our family as far back as the beginning of the twentieth century. Palazzo Benincasa was once owned by Pope Paul III and used to be the summer vacation home for Pope Clement years ago. St. Catherine of Siena is said to have also been a frequent guest.

I am involved in the 'wine world' and we also have an estate where we grow olives, grapes as well as produce our own olive oil (available for you to taste at the apartment). My wife, Andrea (who is from MA, U.S.A.), has been managing the rental of our apartment with me and is also available to assist you in any way. She is very kind, warm, and efficient. Andrea speaks fluent English and is currently taking Italian lessons.

Availability, hospitality and warmth for all of our guests is our trademark. I too speak English fluently and can help you with any of your needs. We look forward to hosting you in our beautiful apartment soon!

Should you have any questions or additional needs, please do not hesitate to contact us and inquire.
