Casa Erika-a peaceful haven

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't believe our good fortune to find such a wonderful and cozy apartment to spend a week in the Orvieto area. Our hosts Maria and Gianni and their son Tommaso were most pleasant and helpful. The peace and quiet, the views and the sense of place were just what we had hoped for. Maria let us use their personal gas grill to cook with for an evening of kabobs and grilled asparagus which we ended up eating with our hosts who supplied wine, cheeses, breads and great conversation. We would gladly return again and if they were to show up here in our country we would hope they will stop by. The place is a rural treasure.

DA NON PERDERE

  • 5 of 5

Siamo due coppie che abbiamo scelto questa location per visitare in particolare Civita di Bagnoregio ma, al dire il vero è tutta la zona circostante che merita di essere visitata. Il Podere Porcino ha rappresentato per noi motivo di distensione e al tempo stesso di apprezzamento di natura incontaminata. Il nostro giudizio, per i pochi giorni permanenza, è estremamente positivo per accoglienza, bellezza etc. Consigliamo vivamente a chiunque dovesse trovarsi in zona di "sfruttare" quest'angolo incantevole della nostra bella Italia.

il Podere della quiete e della creatività !

  • 5 of 5

Conosco e frequento da diverso tempo il bel Podere Porcino di Maria perché è un luogo speciale. Prima di tutto quello che incontri al tuo arrivo è... il sentiero che ti porta a casa!....un breve tratto di stradina bianca che conduce unicamente al Podere, così che quando scendi dalla macchina sai che non saresti potuto andare oltre quel luogo. Subito dopo camminando tra i piccoli ulivi , in mezzo al prato, incontrando la pergola di kiwi, il sambuco, fino al mandorlo che è il custode della valle, allora, a quel punto sei certo che quel luogo era lì da sempre e ti aspettava. il tempo ha già cambiato ritmo e tu sorridi e Maria altrettanto ti sorride mentre ti mostra il suo piccolo affascinante regno immerso nella natura e ben custodito dall'operosità di chi lo abita stabilmente. I piccoli appartamenti sono tutti accoglienti, ogni cosa è scelta con gusto e raffinata semplicità: dai mobili ai materiali strutturali delle case, dai colori dei bagni alle tazze nelle quali berrai il tuo tè del mattino , le coperte, le lenzuola, le asciugamani sempre profumate di fresco, e i libri e le mappe del territorio non mancano mai. L'esterno del Podere è molto ben attrezzato e sempre a disposizione degli ospiti, insieme a un buon succo di sambuco che Maria prepara con le sue mani. Inoltre con Gianni e con Maria, potrai conversare piacevolmente di arte e cultura e in particolar modo di teatro essendo Gianni attore e drammaturgo, fondatore del Teatro Null . Le notti al Porcino sono un incanto, la visibilità del cielo stellato è totale, a volte c'è un cane che abbaia in lontananza o qualche pecora bela nell'ovile....e sempre più ti senti a casa e anche se non sei ancora andato via, già sai che vorrai tornare ! Grazie Porcino! Grazie davvero !

Oase und gastfreundlich

  • 5 of 5

Eine Oase pur und tolle Gastfreundschaft ist bei der Maria anzutreffen. Studios in denen sich gut Ferien machen lässt und draussen, wo man sich gerne aufhaltet unter einer Kiwi-Laube oder auf einem Liegestuhl, etc.

In der Gegend gibt es wunderbare Restaurants und herrliche Orte zu entdecken.

Erholung pur!

  • 5 of 5

Wunderschön gelegen mit Blick über das Tibertal; Olivenbäume, Mohnblumen, Vogelzwitschern, blühender Oleander, Hängematten zwischen den Feigenbäumen - ein unglaublich idyllisches ruhiges Plätzchen, an dem wir uns wunderbar erholt haben, nicht zuletzt dank der tollen, unkomplizierten Gastfreundschaft von Maria und Gianni, die gleich nebenan wohnen. Was immer wir gebraucht haben oder wissen wollten, sie waren immer mit Rat und Tat zur Stelle. Unser Einjähriger hat sogar eine Wanne zum Plantschen bekommen.

Schöne Ausflüge z.B. nach Orvieto, Civitella di Bagnoregio, Bolsena, den "Parco dei mostri" und den Giardino dei Tarocchi" von Niki de Saint-Phalle, und jeden Abend ein kleiner, feiner Spaziergang in der Umgebung.

Wir hoffen, bald wieder zu kommen. Tausend Dank an Maria und Gianni!

Natur pur und Gastfreundschaft

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten wunderbare 10 Tage in Podere Porcino. Das Studio und der wunderschöne Garten sowie Marias herzliche, aber diskrete Gastfreundschaft war wirklich zum Wohlfühlen. Wir haben die absolute Ruhe genossen, aber auch viele schöne Dinge besichtigt. Orvieto, Civita und der herrliche Bolsenasee sind in etwa 30 Minuten erreichbar. Mit Einkaufen muß man ein bißchen vorausplanen,da der nächste Laden nicht gerade um die Ecke ist, aber das geht auch. Wer Natur mit Vögeln, Schafen, Gockel-Weckruf , Hund und Katzen liebt, so wie wir, ist hier wirklich gut aufgehoben. Ein schöner Urlaubsplatz, etwas versteckt, aber gut mit Hinweisschildern, die den Weg dorthin weisen, bestückt - das geht leichter als mit dem Google Routenplaner! Wir behalten Euch in guter Erinnerung und wünschen Euch, liebe Maria und Gianni, alles gute und viele nette Gäste!
