About This Listing
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.

Charming bed and breakfast in the beautiful town of Orvieto. Jasmina is extremely friendly, room was big, clean, awesome shower! 100% recommend it!
Jasmine è stata fantastica e molto gentile! la descrizione dell'annuncio è stata ben fatta e dettagliata anche su come arrivare al quartiere.
Absolutely wonderful 2 night stay here with Jasmina in May 2015, the room is exactly as pictured, quiet, and clean, bed was very comfortable. We had to be up early both mornings and Jasmina was kind enough to set out breakfast for us the night before so that we didn't miss out, had a great dinner as well using her restaurant recommendations. Could not recommend this B&B enough as well as the beautiful town of Orvieto. Thanks Jasmina!
We were in love with Orvieto as soon as we stepped off the bus in the piazza! Jasmina gave excellent directions to her home and we found it quite easily. What a beautiful home - very clean, quiet and just as the pictures show. Jasmina was a lovely hostess and was so helpful with information and advice. When our rental car was not available we had to stay an extra few days in Orvieto and although she did not have space available she helped us find a lovely b&b on a holiday weekend. Breakfasts were better than most we had on our trip. We highly recommend staying with Jasmina and will certainly do so again if we return to Orvieto!
My wife and I stayed recently at the Casa del Tufo and had a very very enjoyable time. Jasmina is quite warm and wonderful—and was very helpful to us in several ways. She is fluent in German, English and Italian—perhaps others too, but those were the ones I heard—so she's easily capable of dealing with guests from many areas. I will recommend Jasmina, and the Casa del Tufo, to any friends who will be visiting Orvieto. It was really a pleasure...
Jasmina is such a great person and it was honour to spend time at her Casa. Place is quit, well equiped and clean. We felt welcomed and comfortable. Breakfast was great. Orvieto is a great place to visit and Jasmina´s Casa is the best place to stay. Thank you, Michaela.
