The
Experience

Luxuries in this secluded Umbrian farmhouse are of the natural kind: sunset views over a rolling valley of olive groves and vineyards to hilltop Orvieto; delicious homemade cakes and home-grown fruit jams at breakfast, taken in fine weather under the stone veranda as Beethoven drifts through the air; Slow Food with extra virgin olive oil from the estate’s 700 trees and organic veg from a flourishing garden. Dinners are sociable occasions, a chance to chat with other guests and be inspired by Marco and Daniela’s enthusiasm for their new life in the countryside. Inspiring it is; from a rustic sitting room bedecked with candles and warmed by a cosy fireplace to six pristine bedrooms, the beautifully restored 17th-century stone house exudes warmth and character. On clear nights you can see Jupiter, Venus and the Milky Way, while in June the fireflies perform by the pool. Retire to rooms with marvellous views over the countryside of Umbria and Tuscany, where you can hike, ride, and try something a little different – perhaps a wine and cheese tasting or a pottery class.

Reviews

Marco and Daniella were terrific hosts and the best host is Miles,, the dog! Great food and the walking,, sightseeing in the area is perfect!

Linda, Vancouver

Wonderful hosts go the extra mile to ensure guests have a happy and memorable stay; even organised a visit to a goat farm where we sampled an amazing selection of farm cheeses and local wine for lunch. The location is quiet with far reaching views to Orvieto. Old wine cellar room was spacious and cool during August heat. Bathroom well appointed, super clean with walk in shower. Enjoyed the lovely pool and lucky enough to be there on one of Marco's cooking nights: delicious meal from fresh local ingredients, served at long table with other guests. Regret only 2 night stay. Go if you can!
