About the property

Villa Monteporzano

Villa Monteporzano is a beautiful country property 2.5 km from the Medieval city of Orvieto in Umbria/Italy. It was built in 1800 and since then it is being owned by the ancient noble Umbrian family Fiumi di Sterpeto who moved from Assisi to Orvieto in 1800.

Thanks to its dominant hilly position, it makes the guests enjoy a spectacular view of the tufa rocks of the city with its Duomo and the surrounding valley.

Villa Monteporzano has been recently and perfectly restored while preserving the original building, with ceilings made of chestnut beams, ancient cotto floors and stone fireplaces, and offers unforgettable and unique holidays in an amazing 1800 atmosphere and with all the modern comforts.

The property offers different possibilities for your stay:

- The 450 square meter ancient padronal Villa, arranged on two levels, rich of frescoes and ancient family furniture, that can accommodate up to 8 people, surrounded by a wide and shady private garden.

- Five wide and comfortable self-catering apartments of different sizes, with two or three beds that can accommodate totally up to 18 people. They are all located in the ancient stone countryhouse that was in the past the family's farmhouse and stable.

The property has a wonderful 7 x 14 meter large swimming-pool both for the Villa and the apartments’s guests, surrounded by the olive groves and and a wide landscaped garden with roses, with a Roman staircase access, a solarium area equipped with sun loungers and umbrella, where guests can enjoy a breathtaking view of Orvieto.

Peaceful, Serene, with many nearby Adventures

  • 5 of 5

We traveled as a group of 8 friends, from Southern Italy to Northern Italy for one month in May, and I would describe our one week stay at this Villa, within view of the Duomo of Oriveto, as being the highlight of our trip. Not only is it located in a breathtakingly beautiful part of the country, but it is perfect for taking day trips and exploring this part of Umbria and its many wonders.

All of the sights and activities that we wanted to do were easily accessible from our location with a short drive (all within an hour or less) by car. We wanted to spend time in Orvieto, visiting the beautiful duomo, touring the underground, and seeing the medieval palaces, but we also wanted to explore the region, including Lake Bolsena, go to the hot spring spas, and especially high on our list was to see the crumbling medieval town Civita di Bagnoregio.

We rented 2 apartments located in a 200+ year old stone building which has all of the modern conveniences, including a good wi-fi connection and cell phone coverage. The apartments were adjacent, making it easy for a group to visit back and forth. Each apartment had plenty of privacy and were soundproof. The front terrace/decks were wonderful, with outdoor yard furniture, and spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, olive and lemon groves, and of the old hilltop town, Orvieto. In the mornings we would sit out on the terrace, drink our coffee and listen to the birds sing. The grounds consist of several acres. It is peaceful, quiet and the swimming pool is gorgeous (but it was still too cool in May to use it).

Daniele, the property caretaker and groundsman, made us feel at home, and was he was always available to assist with any of our needs. The owners of the Villa were extremely hospitable, welcoming us with a bottle of local wine, and provided us with many tips about the surrounding country.

n the evenings we would either cook our meals, after shopping at the local Co-op, or fresh produce and meats at the Farmer’s Market, or we would drive the short distance into Orvieto and go out to one of the many fine restaurants. The kitchens were well-stocked with just about anything that you would need, plenty of plates, pots and pans, coffeemaker, and ours even came with spices and homemade olive oil.

This property is highly recommended for location, hospitality, and comfort.

AMAZING!!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing! Wonderful! Fantastic! These were the words we have been using over and over again to describe our time at the Residenza Monteporzano. We are a family of 12! Nana and Papa (Nonna and Nonno), their 3 daughters and the daughters' families. We spent a very lovely week at Monteporzano and felt extremely cared for. We were welcomed very warmly by Guilio and he gave us lots and lots of information about the region, what to see, where to go, how to get there, etc. In fact, we had many emails with Guilio before our visit to arrange our stay (traveling with a group of 12, as you can imagine, is no easy feat), and he was always very responsive and helpful. Through Guilio, we were connected with Chef Fracesco who prepared 3 exquisitely delicious dinners for us during our stay. Our kids ranged from 4 to 21, the adults from 41 to 82 - ALL enjoyed our time there. Three families (two families of 2 and one family of 4) stayed in the awesome villa - 4 bedrooms with private bathrooms and a family room upstairs, kitchen, family room, bathroom downstairs, with direct access to a beautiful terrace and yard. We ate all our meals at the large table out back, stopping every 5 minutes to remark on the breath-taking vistas all around us. Another family of four enjoyed one of the upstairs apartments, with two bedrooms, a large living room and two bathrooms. We all enjoyed the beautiful pool! And when Guilio had to be away, the property manager Daniele took exceptional care of us - one time making reservations for us at a lovely roadside restaurant Cacciatore (on the way to Lake Bolsena) and then calling the restaurant while we were there to ensure we arrived safely and were being treated like royalty!

Residenza Monteporzano is a place we would LOVE to return to again and again.

Thank you Guilio!!!

With much love and gratitude, The Ray Family

Perfect holiday accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We had two glorious weeks staying in the apartment Rosa. The location is stunning looking out across to Orvieto. The villa and apartments are set amidst olive groves with a avenue of cypress trees leading to the villa. We enjoyed the use of the pool and the lovely garden, it's location could not be more perfect. The apartment was well furnished with one en-suite bathroom with bath and a separate house bathroom. We found it clean and tidy. We enjoyed the large terrace to sit out on outside the apartment. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners Isabella and Julio with a wonderful welcome pack including olive oil made from their own olive grove. Orvieto is a very picturesque town with lots to see and do. The train station has a regular service to Rome and Florence. If you are looking to book a holiday around Orvieto I would highly recommend this as a place to stay

Perfekte Lage in Umbrien

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachte eine Woche in diesem charmanten Haus und haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Der Garten, Swimming Pool, Blick auf Orvieto sind top. Man muss zwar nach Orvieto fahren (10 Minuten), dafür hat man Ruhe und viel Platz. Innerhalb von einer Stunde in Rom, was wir genutzt haben um die Stadt zu besichtigen. Der Wirt Giulio was äusserst hilfreich und hatte für uns gute Tips. Essen in Orvieto überall top und nicht teuer. Kann ich nur weiterempfehlen.

POSTO INCANTEVOLE

  • 5 of 5

Pur mancando qualche indicazione per facilitare l'arrivo, quando alla fine si giunge alla villa di Monteporzano si rimane esterefatti per la bellezza del luogo e della magnifica veduta su Oervieto e in particolare della vista della cattedrale che sembra quasi di poter toccare con mano. L'appartamento Peonia è perfetto in ogni sua parte, anche se per la verità,soggiornando solo due notti non abbiamo mai usato la cucina, che comunque era completa di ogni accessorio. L'ospitalità poi del Sig. Giulio è stata meravigliosa, sia nel modo di approccio ai nuovi arrivati sia nel dare consigli per le visite dei luochi vicini e dei locali tipici quali ristoranti e bar.

E' un posto dove spero di tornare in un periodo più caldo per usufruire della meravigliosa piscina e girovagare per la stupenda tenuta . Consiglio vivamente a coppie e famiglie con bambini di usufruire di questa struttura.

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful property. Giuli greeted us, showed all around the property and told us about the area. He had great recommendation for restaurants and wineries. The apartment had plenty of space and so charming. Our kids loved running around in olive grove. I highly recommend!
