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 private bath with massaging showers and foot massage in all rooms. 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.
My family and I stayed at La Casa di Tufo for 3 nights. Jasmine was very hospitable even though we arrived 2 hours late. The room was modern and clean and would love to return again in the future. Beautiful location on the hilltop of a gorgeous Umbrian town. I highly recommend this B & B.
This place was great! It is in a wonderful location, an easy walk or bus ride from anything you might want to see. The room is large, comfortable, and the bathroom (especially the shower) is amazing. But the best part was the hosts. We were very warmly welcomed and the helped us to carry up all of our luggage. We had use of a lovey kitchen and communal area. Breakfast in the morning was fantastic and they even left it out longer for us when my sister and I overslept. I would definitely recommend staying here!
This was a very spacious and comfortable room with its own amenities in a beautiful modern B&B very close to the town centre of Orvieto. The breakfast included diverse choices catering to all. I would highly recommend this B&B.
It's a very nice place. we and our kids loved the stay. The house is well equipped with all the basic modern amenities and more. Would love to stay here again.
We had a great time in Orvieto and Jasmina's B&B was fantastic! She was so wonderful and gracious. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. She arranged a wine tasting tour and drove us there, and arranged for transport to the train. We loved Orvieto and wished we could have stayed there longer. This is definitely a jewel of a place! Thank you so much Jasmina! all the best, Anne & Larry
We had a wonderful stay in Orvieto. Jasmina is a gracious and generous hostess. Her son was also very helpful. The home is very pretty, artistic and comfortable. We had some lovely conversations. Jasmina is equally fluent in English, Italian and German. Orvieto is a small town, so it is easy to get around and see everything. The views are extraordinary. The Duomo, the Etruscan museum and the underground tour were highlights for us. We highly recommend this home and destination.
