The Space

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 (email hidden) school.

After the second night there's a discount of 10 euros: the room is for 40 euros.

  • Jasmina es una excelente anfitriona, amable, siempre con una sonrisa, nos hizo sentir como en casa.
    Orvieto parece salido de un cuento, y el alojamiento, hace honor a este concepto.
    Todo está impecable y el desayuno de muy buena calidad.
    Jasmina, además nos dio un mapa de la ciudad y nos recomendó algunos lugares para visitar.
    Gracias por la atención brindada!

  • Very nice Bed & Breakfast place, the "Olmo" room we had was clean and charming. The breakfast was especially good with croissants, ham, bread, nutella, jam and everything. Orvieto is a beautiful little place, and Jasmina was helpful in recommending us a restaurant to eat. We really enjoyed our night there.

  • Abbiamo soggiornato nel B&B La casa di Tufo per due notti.
    la location è già incantevole e la via in cui è ubicata la struttura è da fiaba: Via del Paradiso.
    Jasmina è stata sempre disponibile e molto gentile.

    La camera era molto pulita, curata e (website hidden) siamo trovati bene in qualsiasi ambito.

    Lo consigliamo certamente!

  • We really enjoyed our stay with Jasmina. Our room was large, beautiful and clean with a large window overlooking a courtyard. Jasmina very kindly did a load of laundry for us, which we then hung outside the window. Lots of hot water, electricity and wifi. Breakfast was good and plentiful. I would most definitely recommend La Casa di Tufo and Orvieto.

  • La Casa di Tufo is most appropriately located on Paradise Road! They were so hospitable and have put so much energy and investment into making this B&B the best value in Orvieto! I can't imagine a better way to visit this classic Umbrian hill town.

  • By far the best place we have stayed in our two months of travel. Not only is the B&B so beautiful and clean, but Jasmina is an incredibly lovely host that made us feel so welcomed and at home. The breakfast in the morning was a delicious way to start our days in the centrally located spot of Orvieto. Would highly recommend if you are visiting Orvieto, look no farther then Jasmina's B&B, would go back in a second.

  • This is perhaps one my best B and B experiences so far! Jasmina's B and B is clean, elegant and beautiful. My boyfriend and I booked at the last minute, showed up at Jasmina's door without her knowing there had been a reservation, but she was still able to accommodate us and even gave us the larger room because of the inconvenience. Absolutely quiet, spotless room with plenty of charm. Comfortable bed. Breakfast was hearty, and Jasmina simply left it for us to eat at our convenience since I woke up late. Very nice, relaxed lady.

  • I had a great time in Orvieto, one of the most beautiful towns i ever visited.
    Jasmina's bnb is wonderful , very cosy and cute. A ideal place to stay, right in the town center. Located in one of the many small streets of Orvieto, it gives it that orvieto feel. Jasmina is a great host and she served us a great breakfast every morning. I say go and visit Orvieto and stay at her bnb. It is definitely wort it.
