Beautiful place for large family

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 12 (8 adults and 4 children) who stayed at this property a week in July. Viviane and Emile are lovely hosts and very helpful to our needs. The house is huge. We rented 2 bedrooms+1 bathroom on the ground floor and the 4 bedroom+3 bathroom apartment on the 1st floor. All the rooms are nicely decorated, the beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are well equipped. The floor has water based cooling that helps keep the temperatures down a few degrees. However when day temperatures rise above 35degC the bedrooms were quite warm in the evenings. We solved this by opening the windows after sunset to get a breeze.

The pool is even better than it seems in the images. The view is gorgeous. It has roman steps and a shallow area for the little ones, and a deeper area at the other end. There is also an abundancy of high quality sunbeds so that everyone gets a spot.

The outdoor dining area is perfect for an evening meal while watching the sunset. We even tried the pizza oven.

We highly recommend this property to large groups and families with children. Hope to be back one day.

Awesome vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home. Owners live in a small house on the grounds as well but never interfere in your stay. Rather they are very gracious hosts who attend to your needs, if you have them. They arranged a babysitter for us, arranged a house cleaner for us mid trip, and gave us great suggestions for places to eat and drink in the area. The house is very comfortable and well appointed, especially with plenty of kitchen supplies for a large group. This private home on a farm about a 10 minute drive to Orvieto was a perfect vacation spot for us. Family was able to join us and travel to/from Florence and Rome easily by train from Orvieto. We highly recommend this home and thank the owners for their hospitality.

A great villa in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

The villa is located a few miles away from Orvieto but sits on a hill will a fantastic view of the town; particularly from the pool. The drive into Orvieto takes a few minutes and the Coop supermarket is easy to find with a wide selection. The accommodation is excellent and was great for our party of 12 adults. We made good use of the pizza oven and 2 barbecues. There are two outdoor dining areas each with plenty of room for all of us. I think the pictures of the pool do not do justice to how good it is. The temperature reached 29 degrees centigrade and it is heated when required. The electric cover keeps the temperature up overnight. I think we were bitten by insects less this year than in our previous holidays in Italy.

I would definitely recommend staying here.

Excellent Villa with Unbelievable Views

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with Podere il Monte and the photos on the website don't do the property justice. The villa has a perfect location in Umbria with easy access to Rome and Florence and the charming town of Orvieto is actually enough with the amanzing duomo, restaurants and markets. Emile and Vivianne were so extremely accommodating to all of our needs. The house itself is very well equipped for cooking and relaxing with comfortable beds, sitting areas and nice bathrooms. The pizza oven is amazing as are the grounds with an organic vegetable garden, a cherry orchard, wildlife and the pool was outstanding. We can't say enough and would highly recommend the property. What a gem!
