Romantic, spacious and very reasonably priced apartment in Orvieto historic center, this beautifully restored apartment offers contemporary comfort blended with old world charm. NOW with FREE Wi-Fi throughout.

The spacious and luminous apartment Casa Cristina is conveniently situated in the medieval Serancia Quartiere of the magnificent historic centre of the ancient Etruscan City of Orvieto, which is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful Cities in Italy. The newly renovated Casa Cristina is located just off a tranquil, narrow cobbled street from where guests can explore all the famous city sights and attractions easily on foot. This first floor apartment housed in a Palazzo dating back to the 15th Century is private yet wonderfully inviting. It has been recently and cleverly renovated throughout without the loss of the original atmosphere and character providing perfect accommodation with all modern facilities, ideal for couples, groups, families and friends traveling together, and retains the intrinsic beauty of an historic building.

It is easy to fall in love with Orvieto …. Sat atop Tufo Cliffs and built of the unique local Tufo Rock, this delightful town is unspoiled by tourism and is a magical blend of history, culture and cuisine. The City’s world famous majestic Gothic Cathedral dominates the skyline with breath taking views from the ancient walls out over the valley and the verdant Umbrian hills beyond. The inhabitants of Orvieto, the Orvietani are welcoming and extremely friendly greeting you with a smile and “ buongiorno “!
Orvieto is a wonderful base from which to explore Umbria as it is strategically well located in terms of both road and rail access. The town occupies a panoramic position from which the views are extraordinary over the surrounding countryside … acre upon acre of natural beauty including rolling vineyards, pristine forest and Olive Groves. The Casa Cristina set in these inspiring surroundings is the perfect place to relax and get a real sense of the City. It is really easy to get around on foot and see all the sights the City has to offer, highlights being the Duomo ( Cathedral), the Etruscan Museum and the labryinth of ancient tunnels under the City in Orvieto Underground.

Accommodation :

The apartment can comfortably accommodate up to 8 guests in three full bedrooms, a study bedroom ( suitable for a child or teenager ) with an additional sofa bed in the lounge offering a further option for 2 guests. From the quaint cobbled courtyard guests can access the apartment, which is comprised of an entrance area and large hallway, a lounge with occasional furniture and a spacious dining area with seating to accommodate up to 6 / 8 furnished in a simple Umbrian style. There is also a lovely light, open and airy dining Cucina ( dining kitchen ) equipped with cooker, sink and fridge freezer and equipped with cooking utensils. Off the main hallway there is a large bathroom which houses a washing machine. Also off the main hallway there are two double and one single bedrooms and a master bedroom en-suite bathroom with a full size shower, WC and bidet. All the bedrooms, which have large windows have light wood floors and are furnished simply and comfortably. A baby cot can be made available for guest use by advance request.

Experience real Italian food ….. here at the Casa Cristina we can arrange for a local Italian lady to come to the apartment and prepare a typical regional dinner or teach guests to make their own Pizza or Pasta which of course afterwards you can eat!
( guests need to arrange this with the Manager before arrival ).

Places of interest :
The town of Orvieto is perfectly located midway between Rome and Florence and provides an ideal stopover for visitors travelling up from Rome from where guests can easily travel north up to the beautiful Cathedral city of Florence with its world famous art galleries, architecture, history and museums. The apartment is an ideal base for exploring not only Orvieto, but is centrally located on the border with Southern Tuscany and Northern Lazio and within easy driving distance for day trips of many other art and historical towns in the region, including Assisi, Todi, Spoleto ( Umbria ), Montepulciano, Siena, Cortona ( Tuscany ), Rome, the Vatican city and Lake Bolsena ( Lazio ).

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1949

About: The proud owner of Casa Cristina is Andrea. Andrea's grandmother purchased the house in 1949 and it has been their family home for many years and it is where Andrea grew up. In 1975, Andrea's father restored the house and the latest restoration has been completed in 2013 by Andrea himself. The apartment is named after Andrea's mother, Cristina.

Why Orvieto TR, Italy:
Andrea is very fond of Casa Cristina because he was born there and spent many happy years of family life in the house. In 2010, the house passed to Andrea and he decided to restore this wonderful historic property in a blend of modern and traditional styles creating a warm and welcoming home.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The apartment is part of a 500 year old Palazzo and has very interesting origins. It was part of a convent which was linked to the nearby important religious seminary called Seminario Vescovile and was only in the 1900's converted for family living. Underneath the house lie several caves ( Grotte ) which date back thousands of years to Etruscan times.
