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.

Things to do

-Historic sights: It’s dark, dank and fun. Orte Underground is a subterranean guided tour inside the cliff under the town. Beneath the streets there is a maze of tunnels that used to bring water to Orte. Many of the tunnels are open to the public and can be walked through. Above the ground, the historic sites includes churches founded in the 9th, 12th and 17th centuries.

-Museums: Among Orte’s prominent museums are The Museum of Religious Art located in a deconsecrated 11th-century church and the Archaeological Museum. Divided into three sections, this museum features Etruscan, Roman and Middle Age relics from excavations in and around Orte.

-Relaxation: Visitors with holiday villas in Orte can take advantage of the premier relaxation of the town’s spa. It is fed by sulphur waters that flow at a constant temperature of 30ºC. There are also two large swimming pools and a parkland with oak and conifer trees.

-Festivals: Every year during the first two weeks of September the town hosts a huge party, L’Ottava di Sant'Egidio, dedicated to its patron saint. There are medieval folk games, arts and crafts fairs, historical parades, theatrical and musical performances and an archery competition. Here, seven archers, one from each of Orte's districts have to shoot arrows through progressively smaller rings.

A great garden and a great swimming pool

5 of 5
We had a wonderful recreation in Izzalini. Everything was exactly like the description of the facility. We were 2 families with 2 children and stayed most of the time in Izzalini because one car broke. We had a big joy swimming in the large swimming pool and liked to play Boule in the huge garden every night. You can sit outside in front of the house for every meal, and we did so. Try the icecream in the small village of Izzalini!

An idyllic holiday

5 of 5
We were so lucky to have found this beautiful house. The space was perfect for two families. The surrounding countryside is lovely and peaceful. There is a small village close by and a mini supermarket, so you are not isolated but you really feel like it is the countryside. The pool and outside space is fabulous. We loved the big kitchen and the pizza oven. It was a wonderful holiday and Cristina the manager could not have been a better host.
