  • Charm, Hospitality, Spectacular Views, Wonderful People, Superb Location

    "We just completed 10 unforgettable days at La Selciata with our kids and grandkids. The country home was just as beautiful as promised and accommodated the 6 of us in comfort and spaciousness with both indoor and outdoor spaces for gracious living. The owner, Giovanni, is personable and helpful, making himself available via phone or email to address any issue. Daniella manages the property and is delightful, eager and willing to assist in any and every way. She is thoughtful and anticipates needs and even baked a cake and brought in fresh fruit for our arrival. We needed assistance when our rental car failed. Daniella showed up in 15 minutes to take us to the train station. The pool and yard are maintained daily. This is a wonderful location, private and yet just minutes from Orvieto's sightseeing, restaurants and shopping. The nearby train station connects with Rome and Florence. We have been in Italy multiple times, but this has been our favorite spot because of its comfort, privacy, location, cleanliness, and responsiveness of the owner and staff. Excellent on all categories, perfect for adults and families? Joyce and Marty Lutrey"

  • Stunning Orvieto Apartment

    "It was a pleasure meeting Valerie and her husband when they greeted us at the train station. The location of the apartment couldn't be any better. The view from the apartment windows are amazing. The pictures on the website doesn't do any justice to the modern beauty of this apartment. Very spacious and was impeccable and that is very important to me. The bedrooms very spacious and the bathroom fully accommodating. Orvieto is absoulety stunning and a place to certainly visit. Thank you Valerie for sharing your beautiful home. I will miss Orvieto. AA May 206"

  • Lovely Villa in a peaceful location

    "Apologies I've written a lot more than I initially intended.. This is a lovely villa which has been tastefully decorated in a traditional style. We stayed here with our 3 children aged 3, 4 and 13 and they really enjoyed the lovely outdoor space and pool which is fully fenced. The property is very peaceful and situated between Orvieto and Bolsena (a car is essential). It was lovely waking up here and felt very safe and secure. The outdoor space is lovely especially the dining area which is raised with some nice views. The kids also loves the chair swing and the hammock. Very relaxing, especially at night when stargazing! Lake Bolsena is lovely and definitely worth a visit however Bolsena itself was quiet (late August), if you're looking for something livlier we'd recommend visiting the other side of the lake where you will find Capodimonte (40 mins) - a lovely area with lake side cafes and both boat and bike hire. Montefiascone is also a lively area with various bars and restaurants. Orvieto really is beautiful, a real hidden gem and with it not being as busy as Rome, Florence etc you can really enjoy it at your own pace. Best local bar is Bar Obelix in the small village of Tamburino on the way to Orvieto, this is a bustling Italian local with great service and atmosphere, and great simple food (pizza, light bites, paninis etc). The five of us had drinks, pizzas, desserts, sides, snacks and cocktails for around €45. We also visited the Ristorante Girarrosto with a great view overlooking Orvieto but to be honest we paid 3 times more and didn't enjoy it half as much. On one of our days out we drove to Rome (1hr 15) and took the metro from Rebibbia station which got us to the colosseum in around 15 minutes. Parking at the station costs €1 for up to 12 hours and we found the metro system straightforward to use and good value. Just a few points about the villa that would have made a great place excellent: The wifi is hosted from the owners house across the road and due to the house being sunken is intermittent in the property and only slightly better outside, we weren't able to stream. The pool is in the sun 12 - 5pm and struggles to get warm during this time. The air conditioning units are upstairs in the two bedrooms. There was only one UK TV channel, BBC world news. There wasn't a great deal of information on the local area or attractions so it's essential you do your research before you get there. All in all the location of the villa is in a lovely part"
