Værterne var så smilende og hjælpsomme ved spørgsmål, fx om ruter og sightseeings og restauranter. De var altid meget imødekommende ved henvendelser.
Alberto and his family were very hospitable! A breathtaking location, perfect for visiting Orvierto. Lovely breakfast and a nice poolside.
The B&B was easy to find, Francesca was there to meet us upon arrival she was very warm and welcoming.
The rooms were spotlessly clean and well maintained and the beds were comfortable.
Outside there is a pool with views of the cliff behind as well as the gardens where Alberto has all sorts growing in it (he'll show you the garden if you ask!).
The nicely displayed breakfast was served below the veranda, the food was excellent with local and home produce, fruit from the garden, home made jams, fresh eggs, cold cuts and no individually packeted items, no "plastic bread".
There is a little bit of a rumble from the road but it is nothing but background noise and we certainly couldn't hear it in the rooms.
Francesca spoke excellent English whereas Alberto is still practicing, both of which were warm and great hosts.
Room was out of the main tourist area but not too far to walk. Wifi was good and room was clean.
Alberto and his daughter were very friendly, they greeted us right as we pulled in. They took us right to our room to get settled in. Alberto does a lot of farming there so it was nice to talk about what he is growing and as I'm a chef it was nice to talk about cooking also. The room was nice, it was about halfway up the hill to the old Orvieto and above the new town of Orvieto right off of the main road. It was very easy to get to old Orvieto and they gave us some great recommendations, check out Trattoria la Pergula if you visit, delicious and some true Orvieto foods. The view of Orvieto above and the valley below from his B&B were amazing. A couple minor issue from our stay, we picked this place for a couple reason one was wifi, the wifi didn't work from our room or was very weak when it did, we went poolside though and it worked fine. We also wanted to do laundry as we were on a road trip and this would've been a good opportunity to do so, in their B&B it says they have laundry but they don't, they directed us to one that was a few minutes drive away but we didn't want to waste time sitting around a laundromat. Also their site claims they have A/C which they do but they charge 10 euro's to use it, there was a nice breeze coming through because we were so high up so it wasn't an issue but if it was any warmer it would've been nice to have. When we were leaving Alberto took us for a tour of his farm and we picked some strawberries right from his garden that were delicious. Overall he was a really sweet man and his place was very comfortable. Overall I was a little disappointed that they didn't have a washer, as it was one of the reason we picked them.
We had a short, but perfect stay. Alberto and his family welcome you in their gorgeous farm. He welcomed us with some hand-picked cherries from his beautiful garden, where he grows just about everything. They live their life along side you, wich is really relaxing. This is the most relaxed place i've stayed in a while. And Alberto and his family are just lovely.
Alberto y su familia nos han hecho sentir como en nuestra casa. El lugar esta muy bien ubicado y equipado. Tiene una huerta muy linda. Los desayunos en el parque son esplendidos. Fue mi primera experiencia con Airbnb y estoy muy satisfecho. Recomiendo plenamente a Alberto.
