About the Property
2 bedroom, 2 bathroom house built on an Etruscan cave with an incredible view.
In 1998 I purchased this house located in the oldest part of Orvieto. For 13 years we have been working to restore it to its current condition, first with my friend the architect Steve Farneth, principal of ARG of San Francisco, later with Gianfranco Pigozzi, a young brilliant Orvieto architect.
The extensive restorations on the house were done maintaining its original character that is integral part of the surrounding medieval neighborhood.
San Giovenale, the oldest Orvieto Church, built in 1004, is just half a block away. Orvieto is divided in four quarters (Quartieri) and San Giovenale is one of them.
Starting in 2015 this house will be available for rent on a minimum weekly basis to friends and lovers of Orvieto. When you contact me, I will tell you about my love for a town that has a deep touching human dimension, but most important, I will provide you all the information you may need before you leave and provide you with the local contacts for personal assistance once you get there.
Please look at the video and pictures, which are important as an introduction to an unforgettable experience for your stay in Orvieto.

From this house you will enjoy an unobstructed view of the lower valley and spectacular surrounding hillsides that divide the roads leading to Rome and Bolsena, famous for it's beautiful lake. Being on the west side of town, this is where people come to enjoy clean and colorful sunsets.
Once in Orvieto, you will want to discover the city, with its museums, its shops, its leisurely strolls, its many fine restaurants and one of the best Cathedrals of all of Italy. Everything is a short walk away,
in fact you do not need a car in Orvieto.
Around Orvieto's Cathedral you have most of the museums, the Popes' Palace, and a teeming city life.
Driving up to Orvieto you can visit the Etruscan Cemetery called Necropoli di Crocifisso del Tufo.
Rome is 65 miles away - 1 hour by car or by train.
Florence is 110 miles away. You can reach both Rome or Florence by train or by freeway. Orvieto has a train station and next to it the entrance to the freeway.
