CHARMING, PEACEFUL APARTMENT IN THE HISTORIC CENTER OF ORVIETO

Orvieto Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 bedroom + sofabed, 1 bath, (sleeps 2-4)

This delightful apartment, recently redecorated and refurbished is located in a pretty cobbled street right in the heart of the pedestrian historical centre of Orvieto, close to the magnificent 14th century gothic cathedral. Simply step outside the door and within a few minutes walk you can enjoy all that Orvieto has to offer : museums, bars, restaurants and a host of wonderful shops on the Via Garibaldi offering beautiful ceramics, lace, delicious local wines, cheeses, sausage and wild mushroom products. This charming apartment affords complete privacy, set in a peaceful location close to the theatre Mancinelli and provides a perfect base from which to explore the beautiful, unspoilt rural region of Umbria with its excellent wineries, historic hilltop towns, stunning landscapes and olive, grape and truffle harvests laden with foodie promise.

LOCATION:

The apartment has a private entrance through a small cobbled courtyard and is located on the second floor. The interior of the apartment recently decorated in warm colours and a super, new comfortable mattress in the bedroom has polished parquet floors and exposed, high beamed ceilings with characteristic terracotta tiles. From the quaint terrace you can sip a chilled glass of one of the wonderful Orvieto wines whilst watching the sun go down across the rooftops. Simple terrace furniture means you can dine 'al fresco' and sample some of the locally produced hand-made fresh pasta drizzled in rich, deep green peppery olive oil.

The apartment is well suited for a relaxing holiday at any time of the year as all of the sights and facilities of this wonderful small city are reachable on foot. Equally for those travellers who wish to venture further afield by train or car, it is incredibly well located to explore all of Umbria’s famous hilltop towns, the southern part of Tuscany, in particular Montepulciano and the Val d’Orcia and Rome in Lazio.

NEIGHBOURHOOD:

From the apartment on foot you can visit :

The duomo ( cathedral ) of Orvieto – Roman Catholic cathedral and national monument with magnificent gothic façade and two frescoed chapels decorated by Luca Signorelli and several other talented Italian painters of the period with images of “ Judgement Day “

Teatro ( theatre ) Mancinelli - plays host to world class musicians during Umbria Jazz in winter. You can also see ballet, opera, folk music and musical tributes inside this magnificent and atmospheric theatre.

For local food and drink – there are many good quality restaurants and trattorias close to the apartment as well as butchers, bread and pastry shops, cafès, fresh pasta shops, and small supermarkets for all your everyday essentials. The apartment is two minutes walk from the main post office, two / three banks and the town market held in the Piazza del Popolo every Thursday and Saturday. Close to the Piazza della Repubblica you can find English language newspapers and hairdressing salons.

ACCOMMODATION:

The apartment is laid out over one floor and is comprised of a light and bright open plan sitting/kitchen/dining area, bedroom and bathroom. With soft color-washed walls, rich fabrics and rugs, the living area is warm and inviting . From the kitchen/dining area you can access the terrace through double french doors. There is a modern and well equipped kitchen with a dining table to seat up to six people. Just off the sitting area is a large double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and a family bathroom with shower and washing machine. Additionally, the sofa in the sitting area pulls out to make a further double bed.

WONDERFUL TOWN, AMAZING PEOPLE, GREAT BARGAIN

  • 5 of 5
Wow, there's not enough time or space to tell you how much you'll love this place. The town is quaint, lots to do & see. Wonderful restaurants, gelato, ceramics, the Duomo is amazing. Mandy is the most engaging, helpful & honestly caring manager ever! We went on two tours with Lois & Paul and made friends forever. We explored Etruscan villages, & hiked ancient Roman trails, we visited a winery & some memorable churches. The apartment is just outside of the retail area of town, off a sweet road/alley of cobblestones. Perfect accommodations, great linens, towels, shower pressure, bed, etc. The terrace was so great in the mornings & evenings with a wonderful view. We can't say enough about the place or the people. It was fun to shop at the butcher, the vegetable stand, the wine shop, the cheese shop...and cook some scrumptious meals. Mandy made some great suggestions of places to visit & eat, and even made us reservations at her favorite restaurant! This is a gem of a place, don't miss it!

The apartment in Orvieto was just perfect! The location was great, off the main street (there is only 1) and close to everything. The kitchen is newly remodeled and is delightful. We enjoyed our meals on the terrace, and the comfortable living area, bedroom and bath were very welcome after being in busy, hectic Rome. Mandy was so helpful in getting us oriented. I would recommend this apartment to anyone, regardless of age or occasion of trip!

LOVELY APARTMENT IN ORVIETO

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I loved our four nights in May in this apartment in Orvieto… It was charming, in a lovely, walkable area of the town and very comfortable. We recommend it highly for a couple, and probably children would fit in the living room? But it is one bedroom… The most wonderful part was the very clean, non smoking environment…very well decorated, and the very comfortable king size bed! We had a car which made it easy to get around to visit other hill towns of Umbria, but you do not need one as the train takes you to Orvieto and the apartment is not too far from the tram to get up to the city center. No internet but there is a cafe quite close that has wifi…

MAGICAL SETTING FOR ALMOST PERFECT APARTMENT!

  • 5 of 5
We booked this apartment for one week following four nights in Rome. The manager greeted us at the prearranged location then escorted us to the apartment which exceeded our expectations. It has large well furnished living/dining/kitchen area, large bedroom with very comfortable bed and massive storage, good, sized bathroom with a washing machine, windows in every room. We fell in love with the apartment and the town!

The manager and the owner went out of their way to assure our stay was perfect.

Wifi was not available at the apartment, but was available for free at a couple of local establishments. We understand it may be available at the apartment very soon.

The managers offer tours. We spent a morning visiting nearby Etruscan ruins and a local winery.

We had rented a car, but we probably could have arranged tours of surrounding towns for less than the rental price.

Orvieto is such a beautiful hilltop town; the views are amazing, the people are friendly, the pace is relaxing. We hope to return!

BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT

  • 3 of 5
Beautiful apartment. Car parking was a problem and needed a daily feed of coins. Bring coins with you. It took over an hour to collect them on first day. No tv or wifi. Easy wifi if needed in cafe nearby. Quiet, pleasant, excellent location. Steps are a problem if you have a lot and/or heavy luggage.
