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) but is reserved for short term guests. You have a well equiped kitchen in the apartment.
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.
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.
Grande satisfaction! Jasmina est une hôtesse charmante, qui fait régner une atmosphère calme et élégante dans la Casa di Tufo. Le logement était tout-à-fait conforme aux photos publiées sur le site: confortable, spacieux, bien chauffé. L'emplacement est à la fois central et juste assez à l'écart des grands axes pour offrir un calme bienvenu dans cette ville où l'Umbria Jazz Festival nous a attirés pendant 4 jours. Nous avons apprécié l'accueil ouvert à notre animal de compagnie! Bref, nous serons heureux de retourner à cette excellente adresse.
Sistemazione ottima, fedele alla descrizione, anche migliore! Host ideale, signorile e discreta.
My wife and I and our two friends enjoyed our four day stay at B&B Casa di Tufo in Orvieto very much. Orvieto is a lively and beautiful town, and Jasmin's B&B is in the oldest part of town, very close to most of the restaurants, shops, and attractions.
The apartment is beautifully remodeled with a fully updated kitchen and bath and very comfortable beds. The second bedroom is in the loft overhanging the main bedroom, which could be awkward if you are not family or very close friends, but it worked well for the four of us.
Jasmin was very helpful and friendly, and she serves wonderful breakfasts in the common sitting room one floor down. The breakfasts are included. We had to leave early on our last day, before breakfast is served, but Jasmin left out cornetti, fruit, and coffee for us. She is a wonderful host.
This is a terrific place to stay in Orvieto, and I do not hesitate at all to recommend it to anyone visiting there.
The apartment was beautiful and spacious. We were on a charming street very near to everything. Jasmina provided a warm welcome and offered great advice during our stay. Orvieto is a magical place and this is a perfect place to enjoy it from.
We had a lovely experience at Jasmine's B&B. Jasmine is a great host and gave us very helpful information during our entire stay. Breakfast was delicious (best cornetti I had in Italy). The flat itself is very comfortable and extremely well located. We would definitely stay there again in the future!!!
Marvelous! We loved our stay in our suite. The place was clean, stylish, quiet, relaxing, and just utterly appealing. We were surprised to have a full suite, with kitchen, bath, and space. Lovely breakfast! And Jasmina was superb. Perfect for a family of four. Can't recommend highly enough.
We have just spent the most wonderful month in Jasmina's apartment in Orvieto. The apartment was warm, comfortable, bright, airy and clean. Jasmina is a warm, kind, helpful host and at all times made us feel very welcome. Orvieto is a delightful hilltop town with narrow cobbled streets, a stunning Duomo and very interesting Etruscan history. It is made accessible to the railway station by the use of a local bus (the Circolare) which goes about every 10 to 15 minutes and takes you to the funicolare which then takes you down to the railways station. If you are staying for any length of time, the marcelleria and panetteria just around the corner from Jasmina's are great and the people very welcoming. The passeggiata is a must and sitting outside the bar Clan Destino, drinking wine, eating their very generous savouries, watching the Orvietans meeting their friends is wonderful. I can recommend the whole experience.
