Property description

Buon Giorno e Benvenuto!

Hello and welcome to 'Casa delle Case' - our charming 2-bedroom villa apartment located in the spectacular medieval hilltop town of Orvieto.

THE ACCOMODATION:

Located in Orvieto’s oldest and most charming neighborhood of San Giovanale, 'Casa delle Case' offers stunning panoramic views of the sun-drenched Tufa rock wall on which the medieval city was built.

The apartment is spacious in size. At over 700 square feet spread out on 1 level, it comfortably accommodates 1-4 persons.

The open floor plan is bright and airy and is comprised of a living room, dining room, full-sized kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 1 bath and a home office.

With careful attention to detail, the renovation of 'Casa delle Case' was recently completed in 2014 and offers guests the modern conveniences of today, yet incorporates antiquities and Umbrian country décor that retains the Italian charm of yesteryear!

THE AMENITITES:

The apartment is immaculately furnished and comes with most everything needed for a short or long-term stay. The kitchen will appeal to the most discriminating of chefs. With a professional, 5-burner gas range and stocked with all the dinnerware, glassware, pots, pans, utensils and small appliances needed to prepare simple antipasto or a full-fledged 5-course Italian meal.

In the master bedroom, a European matrimoniale (queen) bed awaits your slumber and in the guest bedroom, 2 European singolo (twin) beds offer maximum options for any sleeping arrangement.

You’ll find high quality linens for bed, bath and beyond, along with terrycloth robes, and a hair-dryer for your convenience.

Wi-Fi is supplied for free from the home office and its signal covers the entire apartment – perfect for watching TV or streaming music on any personal electronic device in any room.

ORVIETO:

Orvieto is one of the principal sights of the region of Umbria. Its situation is marvelous - perched high above tufa cliffs - showing traces of every phase of history for the past 3 thousand years. 'Casa delle Case' is the perfect base from which to explore the splendor of not only Orvieto but of the Umbrian countryside as well.

Only a few minutes walk from the apartment is the spectacular 14th Century Duomo (cathedral), known for its gleaming mosaic-covered facade it’s one of Italy's top Romanesque - Gothic masterpieces.

The tufa butte on which Orvieto is located is itself riddled with caves and wells dating from Etruscan times to only a couple of hundred years ago. The most spectacular of these is the Pozzo di San Patrizio, a deep well with a double spiral staircase leading to the water source at its base. It dates from 1537 and is 62 m deep. Above ground the streets are lined with shops and cafés where an espresso or caffe latte or cappuccino awaits your call. If something more substantial is on your menu, the collection of excellent Italian restaurants will certainly fit the bill.

'Casa delle Case’s' central location makes it easy for guests to get out and explore the beautiful unspoiled rural regions that Umbria and Tuscany have to offer. From the peaceful Lake Bolsena, to the many other historic hilltop towns, this area boasts many excellent wineries, and groves of olives, grapes and truffles flow over the softly rolling hills.

For ALL of this 'Casa delle Case' will be your home away from home!

Car: Not Necessary

Orvieto is centrally located in Italy’s Umbria region. It sits alongside the Autostrada A-1 (the spinal cord of the country’s highway system connecting Milan and Naples) so it’s easily accessible by car or train (only 1 hour on the regional train line between Rome Termini and Florence/Santa Maria Novella).

If Arriving By Train…

From outside Orvieto’s train station take the funicolare (funicular rail car) that runs every 10 minutes up to town. From Piazza Cahen take the picturesque 15-minute stroll up the Corso Cavour to the historical center or hop on the bus that drops visitors off at the Duomo or Piazza della Repubblica. Casa delle Case is just a short walk from the center of town.

If Arriving By Car…

There are several parking lots in town, but the closest to Casa delle Case and easiest to access is the Forum Boario lot on the western end of the town, accessible from the Strada della Stazione to Via delle Conce. This lot offers both open and covered garage parking and has an escalator (scala mobile) or elevator (ascensore) up to the center of town.

Must Sees…

Duomo di Orvieto - This 14th century Roman Catholic Cathedral is one of the most spectacular and important in Italy. Its Capello di Madonna di San Brizio contains Luca Signorelli’s (c. 1445 –1523) Last Judgment, considered by many to be his masterpiece.

Orvieto Underground - This tour leads you through an utterly fascinating subterranean network of medieval caves, tunnels and Etruscan wells.

Torre del Moro - The 13th century clock tower chimes on the hour, half and quarter hours, so you’ll never need a wristwatch. Climb the 270 stairs to the top for a bird’s eye view of Orvieto’s terracotta rooftops and surrounding countryside.

Pozzo di San Patrizio (St. Patrick’s Well) - Dating back to 1537, the largest of the town’s subterranean wells measures 62-meters-deep and has two spiral staircases, one for descending and one for ascending, that provided residents essential access to the water source at its base.

Crocifisso del Tufo Etruscan Necropolis (Etruscan Tombs) - One of only two Etruscan necropolises in Umbria, it dates back to the mid-6th century B.C. and is an enlightening example of the engineering superiority of this ancient but highly advanced civilization.
