Overview

Orvieto Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

'Casa di Felicita' is located on a small piazza, Piazza Sant’ Angelo, off the Corso Cavour in the center of the mediaeval town of Orvieto. The spectacular Duomo di Orvieto, a masterpiece of Gothic architecture with its Chapel of San Brizio frescoed by Fra Angelico and Luca Signorelli, is a short walk away. A great gelateria is also located on the Piazza del Duomo!

The apartment is accessed via one flight of stairs and occupies the first floor of a two-apartment, 300 year old building. There is a small terrazzo for morning coffee just outside the front door. Recently restored, the apartment has three arches, terracotta tiled floors throughout, and the bedrooms are painted with rich and warm colors. The windows are high as are the ceilings. The apartment is very light. The living room is large and is contiguous with the generous dining alcove. The kitchen is fully equipped and has stools for conversation while cooking. The master bedroom has a full bathroom ensuite and Twin beds or a King-size bed as desired, the second bedroom has a full bathroom (two steps across the hall) and a Queen-size bed, the third bedroom (down two steps) has a trundle bed for one adult or two children. A washer is located in the large storage closet at the end of the hall to the master bedroom.

Parking is available in a large, covered garage nearby. Cars can be rented locally or at the nearby Perugia Airport for extended stays or day trips.

The town has many trattorias, ristorantes, coffee bars, enotecas, markets, shops and a champagne bar all within walking distance. Some of the trattorias and ristorantes will truly delight your palate, but all are good. One of the best bakeries is very close to the apartment and there is a caffé in the Piazza Sant’ Angelo. And there’s a farmers' market every Thursday and Saturday. Orvieto has many music, dance, and medieval folklore festivals and even a Palio. The Teatro Comunale Mancinelli on Corso Cavour has regular concerts and other cultural events. Concerts in the Duomo are sublime. There is a jazz festival in December and January. It just goes on.

More about Orvieto:

Orvieto, a medieval walled city with Romanesque and Gothic (and occasional Renaissance, Baroque and Neoclassical) buildings, is situated on the summit of a volcanic butte with dramatic sheer walls. There are panoramic views of the beautiful surrounding countryside from all parts of the city. Historically, Orvieto was a major center of the Etruscan civilization. There are Etruscan historical sites which can be visited. Beneath the hilltop city, there is an underground city of passages and streets created by the first Etruscans (for cisterns) and expanded in the Middle Ages (for cellars and working spaces). At the bottom of the butte surrounded by orchards and a winery, the Etruscan necropolis of Crocefisso di Tufo counts a hundred or so chamber tombs along a rectangular street grid. There are two fine archeological museums containing extensive collections of Etruscan and Greek objects.

Orvieto is well-situated for exploring the many treasures of Umbria, Tuscany, and Lazio. All can be accessed by car and some by train. Daytrips will allow you to relish the extraordinary food, beauty, art, and architecture of the areas. A sampling with distances in miles from Orvieto: Umbria: Spoleto (61), Assisi (56), Todi (22), Cortona (58), Perugia (48), Montefalco (39). Tuscany: Florence (105/one hour and 15 minutes by train), Montalcino (58), Montepulciano (41), Pienza (48), San Gimignano (99), and Siena (75). Lazio: Rome and environs (74 mi. or 55 minutes by train).

Wonderful, spacious, clean and centrally located!

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful apartment, really large and very comfortable and clean, with nice touches throughout. It's right in the heart of Orvieto and was ideal for my wife and in-laws, and our twin 4 year olds. It's a really great place, very unusual to have such a large apartment in town. Moreover, Hélène is perhaps one of the friendliest hosts we've ever encountered. She's the owner of the apartment, and she's highly knowledgable about Orvieto as well as the surrounding areas. She know the best restaurants, coffee shops, wine bars, as well as the places to avoid. Trust her! She also goes out of her way to explain how the apartment works, the semi-complex trash/recycling of the town, the cable, etc… It's all very easy. Lastly, she does that little extra, emailing us to make sure we were OK and if we needed anything - even giving us an extra restaurant recommendation for my wife and my wedding anniversary. Our stay was in June and the sunflowers were late-blooming and we couldn't find any. Suddenly, I received a text the next day where she found a field that had just blossomed and she wanted to make sure that we found it! She's just a really cool and gracious host, with a great apartment. HIGHLY recommended!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in Casa di Felicita. We stayed one week in Orvieto and would have loved to stay longer. The city is beautiful and the locals are welcoming and gracious. The town is on a main train stop so travel without a car is very easy. We had come by train from Rome and also went to Florence by rail. We rented a car for additional sightseeing. The apartment is spacious and has all the amenities one could need. Helene was extremely helpful. My only disappointment was that I did not get to meet Helene since she was not in town. That said, she stilled stayed in touch and helped us with all our questions and travel needs. I hope to return but this time I would stay longer. Mille Grazie Helene!

Spacious, Elegant and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5
Casa Felicta provided a comfortable and elegant home-away-from-home for our family’s stay in Umbria. Five of us spent 4 nights and would return again.
The apartment is perfectly situated for exploring Orvieto – a picturesque medieval hilltop town, and its environs (by car or train).
Just a little off the main street, the location was nonetheless quiet and peaceful. The apartment itself was spacious, well appointed and spotlessly clean. The listing description and photographs do the place justice, and are accurate with one exception: the two twin beds in the master bedroom could not combine into a King-size.
The owner – Helene, was gracious and full of valuable information. The booking process involved more paperwork and time (for lagging e-mail communication) than others – but it all worked well in the end.
If arriving by train with minimal (rolling) luggage, the funicular/bus combination works well to get you to a starting point for an easy 10-minute downhill walk. Those with larger suitcases would do well to take a cab from the funicular end-point.
As other’s have commented, the complimentary parking garage space is invaluable.

Spacious, comfortable and convenient!

  • 5 of 5
Our first experience renting through VRBO and we couldn't be happier! Helene made the process seamless and was very accommodating. The property, itself, was wonderful! Very spacious rooms, clean and well appointed. We were very surprised/happy to find a nicely equipped kitchen which made preparing meals very easy! However, the long list of suggestions by Helene as to restaurants in town were VERY accurate as we tried virtually all of them! Several restaurants we went back to a 2nd time before leaving. We were there 2 weeks and touring many of the hill towns in the region and found Orvieto the BEST location to be used as a base. The town has MANY historic attractions to keep one busy for several days, but the shopping and conveniences are an easy walk from the apartment which made for a relaxing time, as well. Orvieto is right off main routes to Rome and Florence. We opted to take the Fenicular (tram) down the mountain to the train station in Orvieto to get to both places as the stations were right in the heart of the ancient cities. Helene provides you with a parking pass for a covered garage walking distance to the apartment which is very convenient, especially since you pass one of the best gelatarias in town!! La Musa is NOT to be missed!!

Charming Orvieto

  • 5 of 5
We loved this spacious well-furnished apartment right in the center of Orvieto.The town is charming and everything easily walkable with interesting sights and many accessible day trips. If driving, make sure your car is small to enable you to navigate the maze of narrow streets to reach the apartment; it's worth it! And, one of the most valuable assets is the gated parking space. Helene was so gracious and helpful with advice about restaurants, activities, and winery tours (even offering great information about special Vatican museum activities after we had left for Rome). The apartment had everything we could ever think of needing and more; and it was spotlessly clean. We were sorry to leave after 9 days since it was so comfortable and there was so much more to do and see in the vicinity. We are hoping to be able to return soon to what immediately felt like home.

quite recommendable

Been spending 10 fine days there with family of 4. Found the owners description definitely complete and accurate, on all counts. Above average in value for money and service level. Trust their guidance on activities and restaurants, they've got taste.
