                                                                The apartment was just the right size for me, a single person on a working vacation. I had room to spread out and feel at home. Mandy and Bruce, the property managers, were so informative and personable. Their recommendations for what to do and where to eat were spot on. The property is located right in the middle of town so everything was easily accessible, no car necessary. I now refer to it as “my apartment” in Italy and will return soon.

                                                                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.

                                                                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

                                                                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.
