About the Property

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom house built on an Etruscan cave with an incredible view.

My Orvieto House

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.
