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.
Jasmine's AirB&B located right in the center of the old city. We were kind of struggling when driving into these extremely narrow streets, Jasmine was very helpful and told us to follow her car to go to the parking garage. She reserved a parking space which cost only 5 Euro for 24 hrs. Maps abc main attractions were offered and explained right after we checked in. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was freshly made by Jasmine. Overall very good experience and we would recommend this AirB&B to anyone who wants to visit Orvieto.
B&b非常好。舒适，干净，漂亮，而且位于老城，走几步就可以到达主要景点。Jasmine prepared wonderful breakfast with various of choices. She is also very helpful and always willing to answer whatever you want to know. Thanks so much Jasmine. We enjoyed orvieto and this beautiful b&b very much. Will definitely come back!
This bnb is so wonderful. Jasmine is a super welcoming and helpful host, she even got in our car with us to direct us to the parking lot! She also puts out a delicious breakfast. The pictures are exactly as the bnb looks, and the location is perfect for seeing the sites of Orvieto. We slept in a room right off the breakfast room, but the double doors on our room kept out all the noise. I would most definitely stay here again!
Beautiful,modern and very clean. That's how I would describe where we stayed. I would recommend to my closest friends!
We had a wonderful stay here! It's amazing how an old house can be transformed into modern comfort like this, with special mention of the super modern shower! Fantastic breakfast too and strategic location for visiting Orvieto by foot. Thanks to Jasmina and we hope to come back again one day.
