                                                              What an amazing Home in Orvieto

                                                              Christopher S.

                                                              Wow..what an amazing home. Plenty of space for two adults and three kids under 4. Beds were super comfortable and the bathrooms were very luxurious. Also the Kitchen! What an amazing kitchen. We ended up making pasta and pizza, and cooking for Easter Dinner in it. Has everything you need. The location is amazing. Steps away from everything. Roy, the property manager met us outside the city and guided us in. He also assisted in finding parking garage. If you are spending a week in Orvieto, this is the place to stay if you want to relax, live comfortably, and live as an Italian. Hard to be beat.

                                                              Excellent, spacious apartment in prime location

                                                              Lindsay E.

                                                              Charming and very large (2000 sq ft) apartment with all the comforts of home. We appreciated the attention to detail - the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed, we had a washer and dryer, and the seating areas inside and out could comfortably sit 6-8 adults. The apartment is also very centrally located, just a short walk to the plaza de republica, where you can reach restaurants and the bus. The property manager, Roy, also very kindly picked us up in his car when we arrived at the train station, and answered a few questions that I had during the visit. Only small quibble was that it's a bit dark inside and the terrace doesn't have much of a view, but those were very minor issues and come with staying in a medival town!

                                                              Overall, we couldn't have been happier with the place, and are very appreciative of Michelle and Roy!

                                                              Beautiful period property in the heart of Orvieto

                                                              Simon G.

                                                              We loved this place! Our family of six had a great time. Very well located. The kitchen was the best we have ever seen in a rental property. The comms were excellent. Very nice man called Roy met us and was most helpful. Thank you to Michelle for sharing your lovely Umbrian home. Cathy Simon and family.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thank you Cathy. I am glad everyone enjoyed our home and Orvieto.

                                                              The EXCELLENT Reveiws Are All True

                                                              Larry G.

                                                              We just returned from our weeklong visit in Orvieto. Everything positive you read in the reviews are true. Incredibly beautiful apartment and so perfectly stocked. Amazing location really close to everything. The town is big enough to be really interesting and yet easily walkable. We stayed an entire week and were never bored.

                                                              The photos you see of the home are all accurate. The home really could not be more spectacular. It truly gives you a sense of being in Italy. The beds are comfortable. The home was clean. The coffee maker is amazing. Michele and her son Alex were amazing to work with. Really cannot find one thing negative to say. Everything worked out exactly the way a traveler would want it to unfold. Absolutely no problems from beginning to end.

                                                              Lots of great restaurants are within a 5 minute walk. Small grocery store is very close and a much larger one (Meta) is about a 10 minute walk. If you don't see something, ask! Often things are behind the counter. The home has shopping bags and a rolling bag/cart for shopping. Great local market held on Thursday (and Sunday). Shopped for wonderful things and made an amazing meal in the gourmet kitchen. The kitchen is spectacular furnished as well as mine at home. Fish and butchers are nearby, but you may need to ask someone where they are. Many of the shops have their doors covered with a type of hanging rope (think 1970's beads going across the doorway), which makes seeing inside difficult. We went to the fishmonger and what an experience that was! He spoke no English and we spoke no Italian. Lots of pointing and gesturing and laughter! Most folks speak Italian and those that don't are still pretty easy to communicate with.

                                                              Lots to do nearby if you want to rent a car. We drove the countryside, visited wineries and went to Assisi. Wanted to see the cathedral for St. Francis, but we could not get in as the Pope was visiting on that day!

                                                              We had two couples in our party and there was something for each one of us to do. Great outdoor space to sit and read or have a glass of wine. Wines are excellent and really inexpensive (about 7-8 Euro per bottle). We had several bottles for 6 Euro and they were great as well!

                                                              In summary, this place is AAA+. Beautiful. Clean. Perfectly located. Wonderful walking city. Great restaurants nearby. Wonderful history. Sweet people that are glad you are there. Easy to communication with locals. Great shopping. Spectacular cathedral. Amazing owners to work with. GO!

                                                              The property is beautiful and well maintained.

                                                              We are a family of six (4 teenagers). We loved this apartment and Orvieto. During our week in Orvieto, the weather was very hot but the apartment was comfortable and we slept well each night. The apartment is spacious and well maintained. The town is fun to explore and it's close to other hill towns that we visited as well. Thank you to Michele and Alex for their hospitality! It was a wonderful Italian vacation. We highly recommend this property!

                                                              Most Memorable Yet!

                                                              Every few years our family (6 of us) meets up for a vacation in Italy. This apartment has by far been the best for quality, comfort and attention to every detail. In contrast from a typical vacation rental, this was sharing a welcoming Italian home. Orvieto was the perfect size hill town to discover on slower days and be a base to venture from. The combination of Orvieto and this apartment made for one of our most memorable trips to Italy.

                                                              The Duomo di Orvieto is a famous cathedral, containing design elements from the thirteenth to twentieth centuries. The large rose windows, golden mosaics, bronze doors and beautiful paintings are all apart of this magnificent church. It is considered by some to be the finest Cathedral in Italy. In the old town you can visit St.Patrick’s Well, built in 1527 based on a plan of Antonio da Sangallo il Giovane. Not far away you can visit the Palace of the Seven from 1300, the Palace of People (12th Century), Saint Andrew’s Church (12th Century), Saint Domenic’s Church (12th Century) and Saint Giovenale’s Church (11th Century). Museums in the area include Soliano Palace museums: the Museum of the Opera del Duomo and the Museum of Modern Art (Museo d’Arte Monderna Emilio Greco). Live entertainment can be enjoyed at the Mancinelli Theatre (1866) throughout most of the year. Ancient history can be explored through the Underground City and the Necropolis of the Crucifix of Tufo dating back to the Etruscan period. All of these amazing sites are within the town of Orvieto. In keeping with Italy’s jazz tradition, the Umbria Jazz Winter Festival is held every year in Orvieto and has become a global platform for jazz artists. Every season offers something wonderful for the visitor to Orvieto.
