Wonderful Place in the quiet town of Orte
Having stayed in Rome several times and thinking it has become overcrowded, we were looking for something an easy train ride into Rome. This house worked perfectly. In the quiet cliffside town of Orte, it was both easy to get to Rome but so nice to come back to at night. The views from every window are fantastic and the walk into the old center or Orte was easy. The owners communicate very well and sent one of the best pre-arrival packets I have ever received. The location makes visits to Umbria and Tuscany towns easy day tips. Plus, the kitchen in this house is nuts! The only ask I would have for the house is AC but we were quite comfortable with the fans in each room.
A stunning getaway in the Italian countryside.
My wife, daughter and I stayed at the villa with my sister, her husband and seven year old twins. The villa was very comfortable for the seven of us for six nights and we had a fantastic stay.
Alessandra met us at the villa and gave us a tour. She was very friendly and readily available if we had issues (we didn’t). There was a nice gift of tasty, fresh fruit and coffee waiting when we arrived.
The villa itself is as expected, well-appointed with nice areas to relax and comfortable bedrooms. We cooked in the professional-grade kitchens and dined in style in the large dining room.
The star area, though, is the terrace. After touring all day, we enjoyed drinking wine on the terrace in the evenings watching the sunset and stargazing. In the morning, it was the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee. Very peaceful and beautiful.
The location of the villa is also perfect. We took day trips to castles, gardens, hill towns and even as far as Pompeii and always found it easy to return to Orte for a relaxing evening.
We also chose to have a local chef, Antonella, provide a meal one evening on the owner’s recommendation and that was fantastic. Antonella and her daughter brought traditional local fare and wine produced by her Grandmother. They were charming and the food was delicious.
If you are looking for a place to relax while you see Italy, we can’t recommend the villa enough. Every part of our stay was pleasing and led to a wonderful time in Italy.
Beautiful, well-appointed home in charming, friendly village.
Our family of six had a lovely stay in this wonderful old house. Anna and Allessandra were perfect hosts, and the old town of Orte couldn’t have been more welcoming. Don’t miss the subterranean tour of the town—most interesting!
Beautifully Restored Villa
This villa was amazing and a perfect central location for exploring Umbria and Lazio. Very close to the train and easy access to major highways. Only wish we had been able to stay longer. We had a cooking class with Delores and everything was so delicious.
This is by far one of the most magical places to stay. The sites, smells and tastes truly filled our hearts. Orte' is a beautiful town to walk around, the small cafe's and community feel was incredible. You really feel as though you are a part of the town. We had a wonderful guide Daniella for a day in Rome and chef Frabrizia that created a fantastic meal right in the villa.
Anna & Alessandra were very welcoming and accommodating - we truly appreciated them for sharing their friends & family!
Looking forward to our next visit!!
Fantanstic house in an amazing location
The house is comfortable, big and with a fantastic professional kitchen, just like in the pictures! The location offers a lot of attractions with incredible places. The owners were gentile, caring, ponctual the whole time and always there to attend our requests. The transportation to Rome is easy and it is a great place to stay. Definitely recommend it.
