About This Listing
Large, bright room 38 sqm in the countryside, separate entrance, organic homemade breakfast, bath-tube, child friendly, .
We, Ignazio Tessa and Daniela, live near Orvieto in Umbria, in our old farmhouse, which we renovated by ourselves.
It was always our dream to live an independent life in the countryside,in an ecological way and almost self-sufficient. We like to paint, make music and above all to care for the land around working in our organic garden.
Our motto is: create instead of throwing!
We rent a big room with a double bed,a single bed or a loft-bed, bathroom and separate entrance.
We prepare breakfast in our large kitchen: Organic homemade bread and jams and of course coffee, or for those who want an egg from our hens.
In spring our guests can see how we work the garden , in summer attend the harvest of fruits and vegetable, in autumn the vintage and the grape juice making and from November on see how we pick the olives . In winter we cut the wood for the fireplace.
The power we produce with our photovoltaic system.
It seems that our house is out of the world but it only takes 15 minutes to get to Orvieto train station and 20 minutes to reach the old Etruscan town.
We have 1.5 acres of land with olive trees, a large vegetable garden and even a labyrinth of stones. All around you can make great walks, find and watch the wild forest animals such as porcupine and listen to the sweet song of the nightingale.
The garden around the house.

If you wnat to stay in Orvieto,
Don't choice this house.
It's very difficult to find house and far from the Orvieto.
About 20 minuts run to uncouved raod into the Mountain.
The bnb was a pleasant place about a 10 mins drive away from orvieto station. I stayed here alone for 2 nights and the atmosphere was absolutely comforting and nature-friendly. The homemade jam and bread e.t.c made from home-grown produce were amazing and i would even go back just for that! The room was very cozy with a pleasantly old-fashioned vibe, but the facilities were all very up-to-date and clean. (The floor heating was awesome too) overall it was an unforgettable experience staying here and i would definately recommend this bnb to other people.
Magnificent location in a hilltop 15min drive from Orvieto. Getting there is not the easiest drive but well worth it if you are after a cosy place and welcoming hosts. Ignazio has been very kind helping us planning our 2 day stay there advising on places to visit and route to take. While there one night reached -3 outside, despite that the room was very warm throughout the night, the underfloor heating was an added bonus to wake up with in the morning.
We were very pleased with our stay and we will certainly visit them again if we travel to Umbria.
Thank you Ignazio and Daniela.
Danke für die Gastfreundschaft!
Es war wirklich ein sehr angenehmer Aufenthalt bei Daniela & Ignazio.
