Food and eating: Restaurants: The nearest village, Acqualoreto is 10 minutes walk and has a bar and a small restaurant, open six days a week, with good home cooking. Other good local restaurants can be found in Fiore, Mellezolle and Toscolana (all about 15 minutes drive) as well as Orvieto and Todi which both have masses of restuarants. One of the few restaurants in Italy awarded two Michelin stars, Vissani, is 15 minutes drive away, on the Lago di Corbara towards Orvieto.

Shopping: The nearest full-scale supermarkets are in Orvieto and Todi, but there are good village food shops in Morre and Collelungo. Both these villages are 10 minutes' drive away and Morre can also be reached in a delightful 25 minute walk.

Walking. The charming castellated villages of Acqualoreto, Morruzze and Morre are all comfortably within walking distance along lanes with lovely views, which lead directly from the house. Serious hikers can strike out for hermitages and Etruscan remains deeper into the hills.

Sigthseeing - nearby : In the immediate vicinity, Todi is charming and has an interesting Cathedral, a stunning baroque church, and a lovely main square, but Orvieto is one of the wonders of Italy. The Cahedral (arguably second only to St Mark’s in Venice) has 14th century bas-reliefs on the façade and a Signiorelli cycle in the transept chapel which are among Italy’s greatest treasures. Another sight not to be missed is the view of Orvieto from the Belvedere on the mountain road which winds behind the town and leads eventually to the Lago di Bolsena. Also close by are Monte Castello in Vibio (a tiny perfectly preserved fortified town), Bevagna (famous for its Roman mosaic baths), the Barco Dei Mostri at Bomarzo (a sort of late-Renaissance theme park, consisting of vast stone follies and grotesques) and the Cascata delle Marmore, the highest waterfall in Europe (another theme-park style attraction - but one created by the Romans.

Sigthseeing - further afield: Perugia and Assisi are 50-60 minutes drive. Spoletto and Norcia, about 1 to 1 ½ hours aware are also well worth visiting. If you are prepared to travel further, you can easily make day trips to Rome and Florence (either by car or by train from Orvieto) and Siena (by car). Citta di Castello, Arrezo, San Gimignano and Lake Trasimeno are also within easy reach. In the mountains beyond Orvieto it is well worth visiting the Bolsena, a pretty little town with the feel of a seaside resort on a beautiful volcanic lake. Beyond that (about 2 1/2 hours drive) is the seasife at Monte Argentaria, a mountainous outcrop in the Tyrrhenian sea linked to the mainland by a narrow causeway, with stunning views of Elba and Corsica on a clear day.
