Orvieto apartment description

This delightful apartment, recently redecorated and refurbished is located in a pretty cobbled street right in the heart of the pedestrian historical centre of Orvieto, close to the magnificent 14th century gothic cathedral. Simply step outside the door and within a few minutes walk you can enjoy all that Orvieto has to offer : museums, bars, restaurants and a host of wonderful shops on the Via Garibaldi offering beautiful ceramics, lace, delicious local wines, cheeses, sausage and wild mushroom products. This charming apartment affords complete privacy, set in a peaceful location close to the theatre Mancinelli and provides a perfect base from which to explore the beautiful, unspoilt rural region of Umbria with its excellent wineries, historic hilltop towns, stunning landscapes and olive, grape and truffle harvests laden with foodie promise.

LOCATION:

The apartment has a private entrance through a small cobbled courtyard and is located on the second floor. The interior of the apartment recently decorated in warm colours and a super, new comfortable mattress in the bedroom has polished parquet floors and exposed, high beamed ceilings with characteristic terracotta tiles. From the quaint terrace you can sip a chilled glass of one of the wonderful Orvieto wines whilst watching the sun go down across the rooftops. Simple terrace furniture means you can dine 'al fresco' and sample some of the locally produced hand-made fresh pasta drizzled in rich, deep green peppery olive oil.
The apartment is well suited for a relaxing holiday at any time of the year as all of the sights and facilities of this wonderful small city are reachable on foot. Equally for those travellers who wish to venture further afield by train or car, it is incredibly well located to explore all of Umbria’s famous hilltop towns, the southern part of Tuscany, in particular Montepulciano and the Val d’Orcia and Rome in Lazio.

NEIGHBOURHOOD:

From the apartment on foot you can visit :
The duomo ( cathedral ) of Orvieto – Roman Catholic cathedral and national monument with magnificent gothic façade and two frescoed chapels decorated by Luca Signorelli and several other talented Italian painters of the period with images of “ Judgement Day “
Teatro ( theatre ) Mancinelli - plays host to world class musicians during Umbria Jazz in winter. You can also see ballet, opera, folk music and musical tributes inside this magnificent and atmospheric theatre.
For local food and drink – there are many good quality restaurants and trattorias close to the apartment as well as butchers, bread and pastry shops, cafès, fresh pasta shops, and small supermarkets for all your everyday essentials. The apartment is two minutes walk from the main post office, two / three banks and the town market held in the Piazza del Popolo every Thursday and Saturday. Close to the Piazza della Repubblica you can find English language newspapers and hairdressing salons.

ACCOMMODATION:

The apartment is laid out over one floor and is comprised of a light and bright open plan sitting/kitchen/dining area, bedroom and bathroom. With soft color-washed walls, rich fabrics and rugs, the living area is warm and inviting . From the kitchen/dining area you can access the terrace through double french doors. There is a modern and well equipped kitchen with a dining table to seat up to six people. Just off the sitting area is a large double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and a family bathroom with shower and washing machine. Additionally, the sofa in the sitting area pulls out to make a further double bed.
There are two internet cafès close by the apartment (charges payable locally).
