LA CASA DI TUFO is a unique medieval palazzo that was built in the 5th century where you can experience the atmosphere of the past yet have all the modern comforts of today. Each room has marvelous views of a private garden and of the medieval part of town. There is a radio in every room as well as private bath with massaging showers and foot massage. There are stone arches, original wooden ceilings and other medieval architectural elements as well as TV and exceptional WIFI access in the living room. The breakfast is a mix of Italian (pastry and cappuccino) and continental (bread, cheese, yogurt, granola, and fruit).
The house is in the center of Orvieto within a few minutes walking distance to all the famous sights, including the grand Duomo (cathedral) with its famous frescoes of Signorelli, multiple museums, the underground caves, monuments, Etruscan ruins, the famous well of St. Patrick (Pozzo di San Patrizio) as well as many others. If you like archeological places we can organize a guided tour to some Etruscan cemeteries or to the caves of the famous “Fanum Voltumnae,” the most important spiritual Etruscan place, which was discovered in Orvieto after excavations of more than 50 years.
If you want to relax after a morning of walking you can go to the hot water springs in the surrounding countryside of Orvieto (35 minutes by car). After that we can recommend to you a typical local restaurant where you can eat pasta like your grandmother used to make. We can also book a guided tour to a local Umbrian vineyard for you to enjoy wine tastings.
Within Orvieto’s historic center there are many charming intimate restaurants where you can experience delicious authentic Umbrian cuisine which often includes truffles, porcini mushrooms, fresh vegetables, new olive oil and a terrific selection of wines from Umbria and Tuscany. The owner of LA CASA DI TUFO has a truffle dog and if you want she can show you the dog finding truffles in the woods.
If you completely fall in love with Italy and want to stay for a longer visit, you can also learn Italian cooking at a nearby cooking school.
After the second night there's a discount of 10 euros: the room is for 40 euros.
Jasmine was the perfect hostess and her accommodation is beautiful. It is in a great location, easy to find with Jasmine's directions and is very comfortable. I can't recommend highly enough.
Jasmina's place is filled with wonderful artwork and books, and it's perfectly located in the center of town. The room was very comfortable, and there's a small private bathroom. Jasmina was a gracious and helpful host, and she prepared a fantastic breakfast for us.
La nostra permanenza presso La Casa di Tufo è stata splendida:
la struttura è decisamente incantevole, arredata con grande gusto e pulita in modo maniacale!
La stanza e le aree comuni sono ampie e dotate di tutti i comfort.
La posizione è eccezionale, il B&B rimane defilato quel tanto che basta dalle vie centrali per garantire grande quiete, pur rimanendo vicinissimo al centro (oltretutto il quartiere medioevale di Orvieto è molto suggestivo...).
Jasmina si è rivelata un'ospite eccellente: premurosa e attenta alle nostre esigenze, ha reso la nostra permanenza decisamente piacevole, quindi torneremo sicuramente!
La Casa di Tufo was an ideal base for exploring Orvieto. The B&B is located on a calm, quiet street, but still very close to the city's main square. Our room was large and clean, very warm, with all the necessary amenities. Jasmina provided a lovely breakfast and good restaurant tips. I would recommend stayed at La Casa di Tufo unreservedly.
It was an absolute pleasure staying with Jasmina. Right from her warm welcome I was made to feel at home. I enjoyed the space in my bedroom and also in the living room. Jasmina gave me very helpful suggestions of places to see and visit and I appreciated the lovely, fresh breakfast every morning. Her place is modern and comfortable in a medieval setting. I will have no hesitation in staying here on my next visit and highly recommend this place to others.
La stanza era calda ed accogliente, il silenzio della notte è stato quello che maggiormente abbiamo apprezzato! La colazione ottima, le informazioni riguardo la città preziose e abbiamo avuto modo di trascorrere due belle giornate ad Orvieto
Grazie di tutto Jasmina!
Nos alojamos con mi esposo en la casa de Jasmina por unos días durante el festival de jazz en diciembre.
La habitación es muy similar a la imagen que se muestra, bastante grande, cómoda, cálida y muy limpia (hacia mucho frio en la calle). Hay una gran ventana con una vista a una huerta. Todo en la habitación funcionaba a la perfección.
El baño es pequeño, pero cómodo.También con calefacción. Y en la ducha hay un equipo de masaje.
El desayuno es simple y bueno. Todo muy fresco y con frutas.
En la casa hay una pequeña cocina que se puede utilizar. Y para nosotros lo mas importante era que se podía hacer te o café uno mismo a cualquier hora.
Jasmina es muy agradable, ayuda en todo lo necesario y habla perfectamente ingles. Para llegar a las habitaciones hay que subir una escalera bastante empinada dentro de la casa.
Orvieto es una ciudad pequeña y todo queda a poca distancia de la casa. Al otro extremo de la ciudad, donde queda el funicular, se puede llegar en 15-20 min a pie. Pero si tienen maletas es mejor coger el bus ya que las calles son de piedras.
