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. Please note that the apartment is reached via two short flights of stairs, so is not suitable for anyone with walking difficulties. The interior of the apartment recently decorated in warm colors 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.

Great centrally located apartment for two.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was just right for my wife and I with all the accessories one needs for a short stay. Convenient to Orvieto’s core, restaurants, churches, the Duomo, and all important gelato. Only a short walk to the funicular, St. Peter’s Well, and the the city’s perimeter trail. If you’re looking for a place to get away from it all Orvieto and this apartment will do the trick.

Perfect apartment, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is very comfortable for two people. It has everything one needs for a short period of a week or two. The little terrace overlooking the roofs is a real treat for a late afternoon break with a book. The apartment is set in a quiet courtyard, there is no noise reaching us at night. The manager, Mandy, and her husband Bruce couldn't be more helpful. Try the tours that they offer, they're well worth it. I would love to come to Orvieto again and stay at this apartment.

A beautiful apartment in the heart of Orvieto

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed here; we loved it the first time and even more so the second time. Situated in the heart of Orvieto, a stone's throw from the cathedral, main streets, bars, shops, restaurants and all the history of this charming city. Beautifully appointed apartment, quiet, clean, restful, nestling among the pantiled roofscape of the city. Thank you to Susan, the owner, for making this apartment available and also to Mandy and Bruce for the welcome and kindness and contributing to our holiday and good recommendations for dining and wining. Hopefully we will be back.

Just to add that we came by train and were happy to spend our whole week in Orvieto but Umbria is a beautiful area of Italy and access to other places of interest by public transport or road is very easy.

A great stay in Orvieto

  • 5 of 5

A very nice and comfortable apartment with a great location in the heart of wonderful Orvieto. Mandy, who manages the place, is most helpful, providing maps and info to you even before you leave home. The apartment has pretty much all you need to be comfy and even has a great view of Il Duomo to the rear. Be mindful the stairs of this 2nd story are quite steep and getting a large suitcase up there is a challenge. Shower's a bit tight but all else is fine. Plenty of great restaurants in this town and parking convenient at a close by plaza. For longer term parking use the free lot behind the train station and make use of the cool funiculare!

Perfect Place

This is a lovely, well-appointed apartment in the heart of Orvieto. It is everything you could want in a vacation get-away. Besides the comfort and beauty of the place, the management was excellent--provided lots of information, answered questions, and was all-around helpful. Highly recommend!
