Description of the Orvieto vacation apartment rental
Casa Vista Verde is a two level unit in a wonderful old stone attached country house, lovingly restored to a rustic beauty with modern conveniences. Every window overlooks olive trees or a valley of wooded hills and distant mountains. The unit has a terrace suitable for breakfast or dinner outdoors. The top floor with a wooden beam ceiling has a large bedroom with a master bathroom including a claw foot tub and a separate shower and another large bedroom, each with a double bed, accommodating four persons. The bedrooms are full of light with lovely views from all windows. The first floor has a small bathroom with shower, and an open floor plan with kitchen, dining area, and a living area near the wood burning fireplace.

Casa Vista Verde is located at the edge of the tiny village of Tenaglie with its Renaissance castle/fortress set into the hill, part of which has been converted into a charming three-level hotel and intimate restaurant with original stone walls and period furnishings. A short walk north is the lovely medieval hill town of Montecchio with shops, three cafe bars, two superb restaurants, post office, bank, and open market every Friday morning.
