Our holiday farm Fattoria Ma’ Falda is surrounded by protected nature with a particularly rich flora and fauna, as well as beautiful cultivated land.
You will find us between Orvieto and Todi, in an area of great cultural interest, close to the borders of Lazio and Tuscany, not far from the cities of Perugia, Assisi and Spoleto.
Fattoria Ma’ Falda is situated at an altitude of 550 metres, with a panoramic view of a beautifully undulating landscape, on the foothills of the extinct volcano Monte Peglia, overlooking the lake of Corbara. The farm is surrounded by two nature reserves of great interest in matters of flora, fauna and geology: The protected oasis of the Peglia mountain and the park around the river Tiber.
The grounds of our farm surround an old manor house which was built in the 18th century. It was first used as a postal office and a place for changing horses. Its 12 hectars of land are now divided between grazing grounds, woods, olive groves and fruit orchards.
The running of the farm is now based on agriculture and animal husbandry for our own production of cheese, virgin oil, meat and honey. We keep goats, sheep and pigs. We are an eco-farm(ecological farm).
We have three flats to let parts of old farm buildings, restored and furnished with care and simplicity: CACIAIA(40sqm - 2beds), CASALE (100sqm – 6beds + 3), CASALETTO(135sqm – 6beds + 5).
Dogs are welcome.
We speak Norwegian,Italian,German,French,English and Spanish.
