Food and eating: Restaurants: The nearest village, Acqualoreto is 10 minutes walk and has a bar and a small restaurant, open six days a week, with good home cooking. Other good local restaurants can be found in Fiore, Mellezolle and Toscolana (all about 15 minutes drive) as well as Orvieto and Todi which both have masses of restuarants. One of the few restaurants in Italy awarded two Michelin stars, Vissani, is 15 minutes drive away, on the Lago di Corbara towards Orvieto.

Shopping: The nearest full-scale supermarkets are in Orvieto and Todi, but there are good village food shops in Morre and Collelungo. Both these villages are 10 minutes' drive away and Morre can also be reached in a delightful 25 minute walk.

Walking. The charming castellated villages of Acqualoreto, Morruzze and Morre are all comfortably within walking distance along lanes with lovely views, which lead directly from the house. Serious hikers can strike out for hermitages and Etruscan remains deeper into the hills.

Sigthseeing - nearby : In the immediate vicinity, Todi is charming and has an interesting Cathedral, a stunning baroque church, and a lovely main square, but Orvieto is one of the wonders of Italy. The Cahedral (arguably second only to St Mark’s in Venice) has 14th century bas-reliefs on the façade and a Signiorelli cycle in the transept chapel which are among Italy’s greatest treasures. Another sight not to be missed is the view of Orvieto from the Belvedere on the mountain road which winds behind the town and leads eventually to the Lago di Bolsena. Also close by are Monte Castello in Vibio (a tiny perfectly preserved fortified town), Bevagna (famous for its Roman mosaic baths), the Barco Dei Mostri at Bomarzo (a sort of late-Renaissance theme park, consisting of vast stone follies and grotesques) and the Cascata delle Marmore, the highest waterfall in Europe (another theme-park style attraction - but one created by the Romans.

Sigthseeing - further afield: Perugia and Assisi are 50-60 minutes drive. Spoletto and Norcia, about 1 to 1 ½ hours aware are also well worth visiting. If you are prepared to travel further, you can easily make day trips to Rome and Florence (either by car or by train from Orvieto) and Siena (by car). Citta di Castello, Arrezo, San Gimignano and Lake Trasimeno are also within easy reach. In the mountains beyond Orvieto it is well worth visiting the Bolsena, a pretty little town with the feel of a seaside resort on a beautiful volcanic lake. Beyond that (about 2 1/2 hours drive) is the seasife at Monte Argentaria, a mountainous outcrop in the Tyrrhenian sea linked to the mainland by a narrow causeway, with stunning views of Elba and Corsica on a clear day.

Extract from review published in Daily Mail travel section 8 Jan 2014:

...I had been hankering after a painting holiday for years.Then I chanced on a group of artists and a beautiful stone farmhouse called Casa Fizia between Orvieto and Todi, above the tiny village of Acqualoreto.

Surrounded by lavender and rosemary, the remote house is up a long track on a hillside where wild asparagus and irises grow along the verge. In spring, Italy's 'green heart' smells of yellow broom and early budding lavender. The countryside in May is a profusion of colour: verdant green hills, cherry and almond blossom. Red and yellow roses grow wild in hedgerows and cascade over balconies.

With huge cavernous rooms and smouldering log fires, Casa Fizia is big enough for us to spread about.

Over breakfast, we discuss our plans for the day - perhaps painting the wonderful views from the garden, tackling a still life of ripe Umbrian oranges or red pears, visiting Orvieto to photograph the magnificent black-and-white, candy-striped Duomo, or drawing the jumble of ornate tombs in Acqualoreto's cemetery.

For lunch we share simple communal fare or pack a picnic. In the evening Mimoza the housekeeper cooks delectable pasta and tiramisu. We also try the village trattoria, La Cruccola, and tuck into ravioli with truffles, plus the local Montefalco rosso wine...

A 3 generations holiday

Despite the weather we had the most wonderful time in your lovely Casa Fizia. 3 generations celebrating a birthday. What a beautiful place you have in gorgeous surroundings. We all loved the way it was so secluded with no noise pollution, beautiful walks, the best macchiato in Acqualoreto and the delightful and helpful Mimoza and her family.

Casa Fizia

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 27, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
We had a wonderful stay in Casa Fizia, a glorious house and peaceful setting, everything was so comfortable, lovely pool, tennis court and of course Mimoza the house keeper is the crowning glory, a fabulous cook we used her every night (except when we had dinner in the village – excellent restaurant). And May is the time to go for the roses - everywhere! An ideal set up for artists, weather a bit wet and windy at times but didn’t detour us, as plenty to see and do on damp days. Orvieto and Todi close by. A very productive and happy week.

Wonderful time

Dear Anatole and Fiona

We had the most wonderful time in your lovely Casa Fizia. 3 generations celebrating my husband Ted’s 70th birthday. What a beautiful place you have in gorgeous surroundings. We all loved the way it was so secluded with no noise pollution, beautiful walks, the best macchiato in Acqualoreto and the delightful and helpful Mimoza and her family.
Our younger son enjoyed your lap pool as he had to train for a challenge race from London to Amsterdam, running, cycling and of course swimming across the Channel in July.
We actually all loved it so much that we would like to return next year and wonder if the 2 last weeks of May are free? If yes we would like to book it from 17 to 31 May 2014.
