About the Property
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, + Sofa Bed In Lounge, Sleeps 5, Fabulous Garden Terrace
On a picturesque, cobbled side street, a short amble from Orvieto's grandiose cathedral, you will find the aptly named Apartment Terrazza Paradiso ( Paradise Terrace ), a spacious two storey independent house, where the owners Roberto and Rosalba await to give you a truly Italian welcome.
From the minute you step across the threshold into the cool interior of the elegant entrance hallway with its wide marble staircase you feel instantly welcomed into this impeccable home. This light, spacious accommodation, right in the heart of historic Orvieto, around 900 sq feet laid out over two floors is a delight.
Located in a 16th century palazzo this first and second floor apartment has been carefully decorated in restful colours, which compliment the tasteful combination of high quality furnishings, beautiful antiques, sumptuous fabrics, gilt mirrors and attention to detail and comfort.
Inside this stylish apartment you will find a large open plan living space with smart parquet floor, deep comfy sofas, dark wood antique sideboard and dresser, an elegant dining table with seating for six and a well-equipped, pretty country style kitchen at one end. Within the lounge, there is TV offering a variety of stations ( some English Speaking Channels ) and WiFi internet access for your enjoyment.
Second Floor :
Up the marble staircase there are two spacious and tastefully furnished double bedrooms, each with large King sized beds, pretty gilt wall sconces, heavy curtains, terracotta floors and large ceiling fans to cool you during the summer months. The shared bathroom is spotless, decorated in pale blues and whites with box shower and thick fluffy towels. The apartment has gas central heating for comfort in the colder months. A cot is available upon advance request.
One very special feature, among many, is the large, private, flower-filled garden roof terrace with views over the terracotta rooftops of Orvieto, which extends the living space to the outdoors. The perfect spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner, the beautifully furnished outdoor dining terrace and seating area ensure our guests can enjoy the wonderful and unique Umbrian light and balmy summer evenings. Spring, early summer and autumn are exceptionally lovely in Umbria and so this terraced garden can be enjoyed throughout the seasons.
Sit comfortably on delicate wrought iron furniture or relax with a book on the comfy white rattan sofa and chairs and enjoy the well maintained, tumbling flower beds full of fragrant plants and lavender.
For those seeking relaxation, with impeccable accommodation in a tranquil setting, with all the cultural attractions of Orvieto just steps from your door, Apartment Terrazza Paradiso provides the perfect retreat after a day of exploring Umbria’s treasures.
Orvieto commands an impressive position on top of its plug of tufo which was once a volcano and because of this is thought to be one of the oldest towns in Italy. Handily for the visitor it is the perfect size for exploring on foot, not too big and not too small and was Italy’s first ‘Slow’ city in that it banned most traffic from its’ centre around its winding medieval streets. Apart from exploring its many pretty backstreets, must things to see are: the Duomo – considered by many the most beautiful cathedral in Italy; Orvieto Underground – discover the many tunnels and caverns that exist underneath the city dug by the ancient Etruscans; climb the Torre del Moro for memorable views over the town roof tops and countryside beyond; or descend into the impressive depths of Saint Patrick’s well. Food lovers will be spoilt by the many restaurants, trattorias, pizzerias, gelaterias that cater for all tastes and pockets.
Amongst the many places to discover nearby are the town of Bolsena and its lake (24kms), the largest and cleanest volcanic lake in Europe; Cività di Bagnoregio (21kms), a very picturesque, crumbling hill-top town set in an extraordinary lunar-like landscape; Todi (37kms) and the many pretty, unspoilt villages and small towns, often with castles, which are dotted around the hills near Orvieto.
