Property description

Villa La Lavanda is a stone farmhouse, and a truly magical place where you can swim, read and relax, take long walks in the countryside or use it as a base for the numerous day trips to the myriad of medieval towns that Umbria and Tuscany have to offer. Just a short 10 mintue drive to all shops and supermarkets. The property was acquired in the early 90's and lovingly restored as a weekend getaway from the hectic Roman lifestyle, since it is a very easy drive to Rome center in 1 hour and 15 minutes on the highway. It is a 2 storey house, where the living room, dining area, TV room and kitchen, and laundry room are on the ground floor. On the first floor there are 3 bedrooms each with their own bathroom with shower/ tub. The tower room is on the second floor with its own terrace that overlooks the unspoilt countryside and Monte Peglia in the distance. Great hideaway with a good book or just to enjoy the view. There is an outdoor pergola/terrace for evening dining, a courtyard outside of the kitchen with a small table for breakfast, and the backside of the house has a large stone barbeque with a wood oven. The guest house/suite/dependance in the garden has a double bed and a bathroom with shower for 2 more guests that is available by special request only.

Why the Owner Chose Orvieto, Terni, Italy:
Umbria is the region that sits right in the heart of the country. It pulses with history and interesting things to do. You can easily travel from Rome in just over 1 hour by car or train and get to the Fiumicino airport in 1 1/2 hours by car. Florence and Siena are both about 1 1/2 hours just up the Autostrada del Sole and and easy day trip. Lake Bolsena is a 30 minute drive, where you can water sports, or if you prefer the seaside, take a well worth it trip to Capalbio and the Monte Argentario where you can reach in 1 1/2 hours and find Italy's most beautiful beaches and crystal clear waters.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Orvieto is full of interesting places to visit in the town itself. The Duomo is renowned for being one of the most beautiful medieval churches in the country, designed by Maitani, who is also the master of the Duomo of Siena. The Pozzo di San Patrizio is a favorite with tourists of all ages, as well as the catacombes, especially in the summer months. There are so many small shops and lovely restaurants and coffee bars to discover as you walk throughout this city, which is built on top of a limestone and sandstone rock, known as tuff.
