Make a holiday villa in Orte your home away from home

Orte is situated on a volcanic rocky outcrop in the centre of the Tiber Valley, 60 kilometres from Rome. The area has been inhabited from the 6th century BC when the Etruscans dominated before coming under Roman rule. A quiet, genteel place today, its streets attract many tourists for their monuments, museums and old palaces. The thermal waters of the spa are also a big draw. This is a place where life chugs along at a snail-like pace.

To help visitors enjoy the scenery and historic sights HomeAway has secured a beautiful collection of holiday villas in Orte. They are located in the countryside within very easy reach of all the major attractions. Each property is equipped with towels, washing machines and coffee makers and some have private pools and Wi-Fi. Orte holiday apartments are of a good size and some are situated in villas with shared use of private pools. With prices from just £38 per night they compare favourably with holiday homes in other locations in Viterbo Province like Piansano.

One double en suite downstairs, two similar rooms upstairs and two twin rooms on the same floor that share a bathroom. No complaints about the rooms - all upstairs ones had great views and the downstairs, to make up for it, had it's own patio area through the second door. Mosquito blind cover all the windows simultaneously allowing a breeze in. Back rooms were cooler at night (including the downstairs double). The pool sits behind a changing room shed and isn't visible from the house, meaning you'd need to be in situ to look after children. Pool isn't deep (4ft at the thicker end) and there are steps. Children became more confident in their swimming abilities as the days wore on. Sitting room has TV, OK internet and Netflix. Internet spreads thinly but adequately throughout the house. Spent most evenings on the paved area under the canopy, eating and drinking while admiring the view. Make sure all food is swept up as giant ants will invade with any excuse. Nearby Amelia (5 mins drive) is worth a few visits: playground, 3x small supermarkets (you need to go to Terni for a BIG shop, which is 25mins away), a few pizzerias, walled city centre, cathedral at the top of a good walk. Walks around the property itself is limited. Running to the cathedral and back is an excellent workout - v hilly - and about 60 mins. Terni has a waterfall that we should have visited. Bath can hold 2/3 children in the downstairs en suite. Changing room/pool shed has another bathroom for showers. Outdoor shower by the pool too. Sunloungers and BBQ were well used throughout. Need to buy charcoal - lots of it - if you want to utilize. Bakers and butchers in the centre. We did Locanda del Conte Nitto for a lunch (great variety - not sure if the owner is Lenny Kravitz or not) and La Gabelletta for an evening meal (great quality - although no one came out until 9pm to eat with their children!). Both came to about 28 Euros/head. Porcelli Tavern does great takeaway pizza (and great eat in pizza) as well as crepes. Student-y vibe and cheap. Slow service. Worth a night. Pizzas 7-10 euros, crepe is 4 euros. Osteria Monte del Grano in Sab Vito was a pleasant surprise for Sunday lunch - 60 euros/head for 4 courses and copious wine - brill local experience. All child friendly. Stefano/Isabella are helpful and understanding. Recommend.

Lovely and friendly owner and really helpful guide when we arrived and during our stay. Thank you both. A beautiful home with a stunning view. Great pool and lots of really well thought out spaces to enjoy and make the most of the weather and view. Really restful.
