SPECTACULAR SIXTEENTH CENTURY VILLA - IDEAL TO SEE ROME, UMBRIA AND TUSCANY

Orte Villa Rental Photos and Description

On the Tiber Valley, 40 min by train from Rome

The villa of the aqueduct is a beautiful and extremely unique villa built in the 1500s around the ruins of an ancient aqueduct.

Located in a dramatic position in a hilltown at the bend of Tiber River, the villa has beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.

• We also offer all inclusive, private guided TOURS: Please refer to our site at leterrae . com

The home was recently completely renovated to both preserve the historic architecture and make it a luxurious retreat for the modern visitor. The exterior, decorated in the 16th century with etchings called sgraffiti, has been meticulously restored by a team of world class art restorers. The interior has been beautifully updated by the owners - two architects specializing in historic preservation and design.

The elegant and spacious home has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a grand living room, state of the art kitchen, and a landscaped garden terrace with sweeping panoramic views. The villa is tastefully furnished with both antique and modern furniture.

The well-connected villa is in the perfect location - close to a train station, you can easily reach Rome in 45 minutes, Florence in 2 hours, and countless other prime destinations easily.

Located in the medieval hilltown of Orte, you can enjoy an authentic experience in the heart of Italy.

The villa of the aqueduct is also a beautiful and unforgettable venue for intimate weddings and celebrations.

“Life changing visit, tour and memories”
From the lively bustle of Rome and Vatican City to the picturesque hill towns of Lazio and Umbria and onward to the sybaritic shores of the Mediterranean near Tarquinia, you will not find a better guided travel experience to Italy than the tour offered by Anna and Alessandra. We stayed at the beautifully and comfortably appointed Villa of the Aqueduct at the entrance to historic center of the hill town of Orte. Here we enjoyed impromptu meals of local meats, cheeses, fresh pasta and gelato, and a class from Anna and Alessandra’s cook on how to make delicious pasta, gnocchi and other traditional dishes. From there, architects and native Italians Anna and Alessandra guided us on exciting day trips highlighting many points of historic, architectural, and artistic importance. Each destination revealed surprises and wonders. In Rome, Viterbo, and Caprarola, we met experienced guides Daniela and Donatella, who walked us through history from the beginnings of Rome to the height of its empire, and the elegance and grandeur of a selection of palace homes of prominent families of the Italian Renaissance. Anna and Alessandra, true to architectural form, employed exquisite timing for our visit, with wonderful surprises – ancient Etruscan sites, dinners in charming Orte venues during the town’s annual eight-day medieval festival, an invigorating walking tour from Rome’s Villa Borghese to the Spanish Steps, the Via dei Condotti, espresso in the famous Antico Caffè Greco, and an unexpected visit to the Pantheon, followed by relaxing people-watching and delicious refreshments at the Piazza Navona and sidewalk cafes. Visits to Civita di Bagnoregio, Vignanello, Vasanello, Bagnaia, Penna, Narni, Orvieto, and Tarquinia each featured more of Italy’s overwhelming abundance for the senses. For those seeking a personally tailored and uniquely special travel experience to the beauty of central Italy and its warm and delightful people, we highly recommend Anna and Alessandra and their team! (And please give Sergio at the coffee shop our best!)
P.S. Wear really good walking shoes and carry an insulated water bottle which you can fill from public fountains.

“HISTORY,KINDNESS,COMFORT AND SINCERITY”

What adjective can you find to compliment the villa and two sisters that make you family from the first moment to the sadness of the last day of our unbelivable stay. Our chef, Delores,our tour guide Danella,the transportation guide Roberto and all that assisted were so full of pride and knowledge not to mention the group of Chamber musicians that gave a concert in the Great Room of the villa for my wife and I for our 30th anniversity .We elected to have Anna provide all our meals ,trips, transportation and tours inclusive and it was the best thing that we could have done. We had the opportunity to visit small unknown hilltop villages and meet the real Italian people, just beautiful and rewarding.
Alessandra introduced our group of 8 to the real experience of a wine class at an ancient monastery that was a highlight of the day ,not to mention all that free wine The greatest
fun for all was Delores giving her cooking class and all the wine that was consumed to make homemade pasta. Our friends and my wife and I will never forget our stay in your beautiful villa and you and Alessandra's warmth and kindness.

Trip Advisor Review - 5 ***** “OMG!”

  • Submitted: Nov 15, 2013

What can one say about staying in a house built under a Roman aquaduct that was last remodeled in the 1500's? The place is owned by three architects (two of whom grew up in the area) who are currently restoring and updating the place including a new kitchen that is state of the art. They convinced a restoration crew currently working on the Vatican to help restore the artwork decorating the side of the house. The house is located on the edge of a cliff at the edge of town overlooking the valley with an astounding view. The hill town of Oreto is not on the typical tourist route and it's only a matter of time before it becomes so. The morning walk into town for a cappucino cannot be missed. The town festival in August is an EVENT lasting all week. I cannot give greater praise to the house, the owners, the townfolk, the whole experience!
