ORVIETO:CHARMING & SPACIOUS APT. IN HISTORICAL CENTER W/ PATIO

Orvieto Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6 - 7

Located in the historical center of Orvieto - just minutes from the Duomo, main shopping areas & restaurants - this apartment is your home away from home. It's a short distance from the train station & is the ideal place to stay while you explore Orvieto as well as other cities in Umbria, Tuscany or other regions of Italy.

The apartment is quite spacious with a kitchen, dining/living room, 2 full bathrooms, 3 bedrooms:1 room with a king size bed & 2 rooms with 2 single beds & also another single bed that can be moved into any of the rooms to accommodate a 7th person. The apartment also has a terrace overlooking the picturesque countryside and offers invaluable views of the surrounding land. The kitchen is fully equipped with a refrigerator, 4-burner gas stove, electric oven, dishwasher, french press and a clothes-washing machine.

The apartment is located in a small piazza where street parking is available should you need it and also has free Wi-Fi. It is conveniently located and easy to navigate the beautiful streets of Orvieto where you will find many typical restaurants, taverns, pizzerias, internet points and any sort of shops you may need.

The apartment is all on one level but there are a few flights of stairs (1 inside the foyer to get to the apartment) to climb but they are not very steep. As soon as you step out of the building you can find a city filled with art, history, and beautiful architecture as well as places to relax, eat, drink and enjoy the traditional things that make Orvieto one of the most enchanting cities waiting for you to discover it!

My name is Fabio and I am 34 years old. My family has owned this apartment since 1998 but it has been in our family as far back as the beginning of the twentieth century. Palazzo Benincasa was once owned by Pope Paul III and used to be the summer vacation home for Pope Clement years ago. St. Catherine of Siena is said to have also been a frequent guest.

I am involved in the 'wine world' and we also have an estate where we grow olives, grapes as well as produce our own olive oil (available for you to taste at the apartment). My wife, Andrea (who is from MA, U.S.A.), has been managing the rental of our apartment with me and is also available to assist you in any way. She is very kind, warm, and efficient. Andrea speaks fluent English and is currently taking Italian lessons.

Availability, hospitality and warmth for all of our guests is our trademark. I too speak English fluently and can help you with any of your needs. We look forward to hosting you in our beautiful apartment soon!

Should you have any questions or additional needs, please do not hesitate to contact us and inquire.

Guestbook comments from the owner
You gave us the best time in our trip throughout Italy! In Orvieto, everyone was so welcoming. Our favorite places were La Palomba, Antico Bucchero, and Montanucci. The chocolates at Montanucci are extraordinary! We love the many antique and modern features of the apartment - lots of hot water - beautiful furniture. You are spectacular hosts in every way. We do plan to return and hope you will be our guests in the U.S. some time soon.



P.S. Andrea rivals the concierge in top hotels!

LOTS OF ROOM, FABULOUS VIEWS

  • 4 of 5
This apartment is large, comfortable, clean, and homey, perfect for a relaxing vacation in beautiful town. Best of all are the gorgeous views from every window--and there are many! Very close, easy walking distance, to the main streets, Duomo and piazza, restaurants, historic sites, and stores. A great place to spend a few days or a few weeks. The hosts provide easy access, immediate attention and suggestions, and will help you make reservations for restaurants and other sites and activities. You are in good hands with Andrea and Fabio.

WONDERFUL HOSTS, LOVELY VIEWS, LARGE FAMILY ROOM

  • 4 of 5
Sitting on a piazza on one edge of the city this apartment offers views of the Umbrian countryside that are not available from many other apartments in the city. It is located a short walk from the Duomo and the city center. The owners were incredibly accommodating and flexible and went above and beyond in making sure we had everything we needed in the apartment and were knowledgeable and connected to restaurants and other merchants in the city and region, owing to their long family ties in the area. Kitchen was fully functional for cooking with an eat in table as well as a large dining table in the family room.

WONDERFUL STAY, GREAT FOR LARGE FAMILIES

  • 5 of 5
Our hosts were fabulous and very accommodating. The space was large for our group and the table fit everyone around. Bedrooms were very spacious, and the view was phenomenal. As with everywhere in Europe, you had to be careful not to have too many appliances (or certain appliances) plugged in at once. The property was well maintained, however, some of the furniture was a little dated. The appartment was convenient to the restaurants, shops and grocery store in Orvietto. The walk to the funicular was a tad long, but when you are on vacation, you have the time! I wish we could have stayed longer...we had a great time!

FEELING LIKE YOU ACTUALLY LIVE IN ITALY

  • 5 of 5
The third floor apartment on Piazza Clementini provides a memorable stay in this Hill top town. We flew into Rome then took the train into Orvieto for our two week stay in Italy. Upon arriving, we received a warm welcome from Andrea and Fabio, who met us at the station.
The apartment boasts 12 foot ceilings, a modern kitchen, and beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. Our gracious hosts provided us with some lovely regional wines, and delicious olive oil from their family’s business. The information they provided, (which was extremely helpful to these American travelers) allowed us to easily negotiate the European appliances. Brochures on points of interest in and around Orvieto, allowed us to include a couple memorable experiences.
If time allows, try a cooking class with Chef Lorenzo at Ristorante Zeppelin; or tour the nearby vineyards of La Tenuta Le Vellette. The city of Rome is just a (1 ½ hour) train ride away, allowing us to make several day trips to see various museums, the Vatican, the Roman ruins etc. Keep in mind that for the most part, you are at the mercy of regional trains. Getting to other cities like Florence takes the better part of the day…going to Venice requires an overnight stay.
Wi-Fi signal is weak at best, so I would suggest going to an internet café. Coming from the States, we are used to “big American appliances” ….so you are in Italy, adjust :) after all how much laundry are you really going to do on vacation?
The apartment provided everything we needed during our stay, even a blow dryer, The apartment was neat and tidy, and well stocked with linens and comfortable pillows.
Fabio and Andrea were accommodating, and went beyond the expected, to make sure we had a nice stay. We could not have asked for nicer hosts.

Owner's Response: We have recently installed a "wi-fi extender" and the signal is very strong now! So if you are a traveler who prefers not to "unplug" on your vacation you can stay connected with ease! :-)
