Orvieto Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description
Sleeps 12 guests, 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms
Bisenzio Farmhouse has been lovingly restored using local materials to create a stunning accommodation to rent. This property has a quaint exterior and the interior is luxurious, stylish and comfortable.
Land on the estate has been developed into an organic farm with rare breed cows and pigs, a flock of sheep, and a vineyard. The estate produces its own vegetables, olive oil, wine and even saffron.
A wide range of activities available allow you to appreciate the natural beauty of the estate and the magnificent views. These include visiting the organic farm, which promotes the breeding and rearing of indigenous animals, country walks with the estate and beyond, horse riding and mountain biking. White roads wind through and around the estate, linking you to charming hill villages.
Guests can visit the organic farm to see the rare breeds of animals at close quarters. There is a herd of 150 white Chiannia cows, some Cinta Senese pigs and a small flock of sheep.
Chiannia is an Italian breed of beef cattle and is one of the oldest in the world. The famous bistecca alla fiorentina is produced from its meat.
The Cinta Senese pig was common in Tuscany in the 14th century (the breed appears in old paintings of the period) when it roamed tree in the forests eating grass and acorns.
The estate produces its own organic vegetables and herbs, olive oil from 650 olive trees, wine from its young hectare of vineyard and even very fragrant and intensely red high quality saffron.
The farm employs nine people, providing welcome jobs in this rural part of Italy and promoting the breeding and rearing of indigenous breeds of animals.
With its own gates and drive, the setting is one of rolling hills and wide Umbrian and Tuscan vistas. To the south the hill town of Orvieto can be seen in the distance.
The gardens are beautifully landscaped with an orchard and large grassed area ideal for children and there are large outdoor sitting areas.
