La macina is a luxurious farm surrounded by green, with private pool ,located in a beautiful, romantic and desolated valley made up of Calanchi. The property is in the midst of 50 hectares private estate and this position insures peace and isolation from any noise. The view is amazing: hillsides, pastures and the marvellous Calanchi Valley. Civita di Bagnoregio, the historic and scenic small nearest village (8 km far away) is an enchanted place where time seems to have stopped. The complete absence of progress makes the atmosphere even more unreal. La macina is strategically located between Orvieto and Viterbo at the borders of Latium, Tuscany and Umbria. You can easily reach ancient cities of the Etruscan civilization like Tarquinia. Orvieto (20 km), Viterbo (20 km), Todi, Assisi and Perugia are also very near by. You can also enjoy the Bolsena's lake (14 km). Rome is just one hour driving and Siena one hour and half.(youtube link https://youtu.be/VzUtHxYpjd4link)The owners have a beautiful Cantin in Bagnoregio 'Pane e Lavanda ' where it's possible to eat.

Just like the other reviewers we found La Macina to be the perfect rural holiday location.
Lovely, authentic farmhouse and gardens with fantastic views. Very conveniently situated for days out in Bagnoreggio, Orvieto, Bolsena, Montefiascone and Rome to name but a view.
Beatrice and Vittorio were so helpful and always on hand to help without ever being in the way.
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this apartment to anybody and would gladly return and stay again.
la ringrazio molto per una vacanza perfetta
Grazie Mille ai miei carissimi ospiti Beatrice e Vittorio
Relaxing stay, lovely pool, great hosts!
We loved our stay in your your house!
The house itself is nice and spacious, and offers the most stunning views of the mountains. The pool was a big hit with our whole family (3 kids of 11, 13 and 16) and we really liked the fact that your could always find shade under the gazebo. Vittorio and Beatrice are lovely and warm hosts, always respecting your privacy, but easy to contact if you need them in any way. There are a couple of food shops (closed between 1-4 pm) and one nice restaurant within a couple of kilometers away, The neighboring villages are very quiet, but Bagnoregio with the stunning village at the top of the hill is about 7-8 km away and has a bit more to offer.
The house itself was very clean, well-maintained and well-equipped. The only slightly negative thing we felt was that the mattresses were a bit hard. There is no airconditioning in the bedrooms, but with the windows open at night (the windows have mosquito nets), we slept just fine.
We highly recommend this property and hope to come back some day!
Dear my guests thank so much for this review Good Life Beatrice e Vittorio
Very relaxing and wonderful environment
We had an unbelievably relaxing time at this fantastic property, far from the noise and hustle and bustle that seem to rule our lives these days. It was made all the better by the always available but never imposing hosts Vittorio & Beatrice. We spent long periods of time looking at the local bird and wildlife population, always something new to see. Local facilities are a short drive away and the villages and scenery live up to their publicity. We would highly recommend this property if you want a very relaxed vacation.
Thank you so much for this beautiful review Beatrice e Vittorio
A Hidden Gem
Wow...what a fabulous location. We had never visited this area of Italy before and were truly blown away by the beautiful local scenery. Beatrice & Vittorio grazie Mille, you are fabulous hosts I hope many more families come to your lovely farmhouse, they may all be our friends and family though as we've recommended La Macina to everyone we know. Also I would advise anyone to visit the local restaurant La Quercia, great recommendation from Vittorio. We would love to come back and importantly so would the kids, so hopefully see you again in the future.
Dear MY Guests , Yhank you very much for your beautiful review Sincerly Beatrice eVittorio
A perfect week in Italy
We had the most fabulous week. Vittorio and Beatrice were extremely kind, helpful and available when we needed any help. The house was clean and very well maintained and the pool a welcome relief from the heat. From there we explored amazing towns such as Civita and Orvieto (the cathedral a must!), eating pasta in truffle overlooking amazing views in Todi, loved a day trip sightseeing to Rome, enjoyed the summer festival in Montefiascone, wild swimming in the gorges and crater lakes ... amazing! We would definitely recommend this property and hope to return soon.
Ringrazio infinitamente Rafela e la sua bella famiglia per aver scritto questa bella review per la nostra casa Siamo sempre felici di ospitare famiglie gentili e rispettose del nostro lavoro Grazie Mille Beatr e Vittorio

Mille grazie , We are very fine when our guests remember their holiday at Macina Thank you very much
Bagnoregio is a small village surrounded by a beautiful countryside. Civita of Bagnoregio is located on top of a hill in the Calanchi Valley which is a unique canyon in Italy. This is a breathtaking place where you can find the original beauty of the nature.
