Property description

'Casa di Felicita' is located on a small piazza, Piazza Sant’ Angelo, off the Corso Cavour in the center of the mediaeval town of Orvieto. The spectacular Duomo di Orvieto, a masterpiece of Gothic architecture with its Chapel of San Brizio frescoed by Fra Angelico and Luca Signorelli, is a short walk away. A great gelateria is also located on the Piazza del Duomo!

The apartment is accessed via one flight of stairs and occupies the first floor of a two-apartment, 300 year old building. There is a small terrazzo for morning coffee just outside the front door. Recently restored, the apartment has three arches, terracotta tiled floors throughout, and the bedrooms are painted with rich and warm colors. The windows are high as are the ceilings. The apartment is very light. The living room is large and is contiguous with the generous dining alcove. The kitchen is fully equipped and has stools for conversation while cooking. The master bedroom has a full bathroom ensuite and Twin beds or a King-size bed as desired, the second bedroom has a full bathroom (two steps across the hall) and a Queen-size bed, the third bedroom (down two steps) has a trundle bed for one adult or two children. A washer is located in the large storage closet at the end of the hall to the master bedroom.

Parking is available in a large, covered garage nearby. Cars can be rented locally or at the nearby Perugia Airport for extended stays or day trips.

The town has many trattorias, ristorantes, coffee bars, enotecas, markets, shops and a champagne bar all within walking distance. Some of the trattorias and ristorantes will truly delight your palate, but all are good. One of the best bakeries is very close to the apartment and there is a caffé in the Piazza Sant’ Angelo. And there’s a farmers' market every Thursday and Saturday. Orvieto has many music, dance, and medieval folklore festivals and even a Palio. The Teatro Comunale Mancinelli on Corso Cavour has regular concerts and other cultural events. Concerts in the Duomo are sublime. There is a jazz festival in December and January. It just goes on.

More about Orvieto:
Orvieto, a medieval walled city with Romanesque and Gothic (and occasional Renaissance, Baroque and Neoclassical) buildings, is situated on the summit of a volcanic butte with dramatic sheer walls. There are panoramic views of the beautiful surrounding countryside from all parts of the city. Historically, Orvieto was a major center of the Etruscan civilization. There are Etruscan historical sites which can be visited. Beneath the hilltop city, there is an underground city of passages and streets created by the first Etruscans (for cisterns) and expanded in the Middle Ages (for cellars and working spaces). At the bottom of the butte surrounded by orchards and a winery, the Etruscan necropolis of Crocefisso di Tufo counts a hundred or so chamber tombs along a rectangular street grid. There are two fine archeological museums containing extensive collections of Etruscan and Greek objects.

Orvieto is well-situated for exploring the many treasures of Umbria, Tuscany, and Lazio. All can be accessed by car and some by train. Daytrips will allow you to relish the extraordinary food, beauty, art, and architecture of the areas. A sampling with distances in miles from Orvieto: Umbria: Spoleto (61), Assisi (56), Todi (22), Cortona (58), Perugia (48), Montefalco (39). Tuscany: Florence (105/one hour and 15 minutes by train), Montalcino (58), Montepulciano (41), Pienza (48), San Gimignano (99), and Siena (75). Lazio: Rome and environs (74 mi. or 55 minutes by train).
