Description from manager

Experience Umbrian living in this traditional villa near the stunning town of Orvieto. The villa is situated on a large private estate that boasts panoramic views, a large pool, and peace and privacy. Pick fresh fruits and vegetables from the garden. Dine alfresco while taking in the views of the rolling hillsides and try your hand at pizza making in the large outdoor wood-burning oven!

(7 Hectares/ 17.29 Acres)<br/>

The villa is situated on a large, gated estate overlooking hillsides and fields where sheep graze. There are a few caves on the property—remnants of the ancient peasant culture of the region. There is a garden with flowers and fruit trees, a vegetable garden, and an orchard. The infinity pool (14 x 7m) is open the beginning of May through the end of September depending on the weather and overlooks the countryside. There are chairs in the garden, a large porch with accommodations for alfresco dining, a barbecue and an antique wood burning oven, and a table with chairs beneath a canopy near the pool, along with deck chairs, a fridge, and a stereo. There is also a large area for parking on the property.

About the area

<p>The villa is 2 km from the small village of Torre San Severo, which has a mini market. A little further is Orvieto, which has some of the best views in Europe, perched on top of a large volcanic rock formation with sheer vertical cliffs. The town has many shops, cafes, and restaurants. The famous Gothic Duomo dates back to the 13th century and features a beautiful façade and interiors. Visit the papal palace, Etruscan ruins, and embark on a guided tour of one of the villages many underground caves. Be sure to purchase a bottle of Orvieto’s famous Classico wine! From Orvieto, there are fast trains to Rome and Florence.</p> <p>Nearby Attractions: It is definitely a worthwhile trip to Civita di Bagnoreggio. In addition, you should visit the medieval city of Todi, one of Umbria’s famous cultural jewels. A perfectly preserved historic town, Todi has a world-wide reputation for its beauty and cultural events. The city center’s piazza is ideal for dining outdoors or for sipping cocktails as you take in the surroundings. Todi holds many impressive architectural sights, such as the Palazzio del Popolo, one of the first indoor public spaces in Italy, which was built in the 1200s. The city has also made recent headlines for garnering recent acclaim for its livability, sustainability, and ability to successfully reinvent itself over time.</p> Rome Airport: 160 km/99 mi<br/> Montalcino: 88 km/55 mi<br/> Perugia Airport: 85 km/53 mi<br/> Todi: 47 km/29 mi<br/> Sorano: 44 km/27 mi<br/> Pitigliano: 44 km/27 mi<br/> Civita di Bagnoreggio: 15 km/9 mi<br/> Orvieto: 13 km/8 mi<br/> Torre San Severo: 2 km/1 mi
