Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Orvieto, Italy your home away from home

Orvieto is a wonderful sight, especially from a distance as the town stands on top of a sheer sandstone cliff, which appears to glow pink in the evening light. There is no escaping the long and turbulent history of Umbria, Italy, when you arrive in a villa in Orvieto, as there are fascinating monuments to eras gone by at almost every turn. Orvieto is world famous due to its stunning cathedral and deliciously smooth Orvieto wines, and there is plenty to entertain visitors to an Orvieto villa.

Things to do on holiday in Orvieto, Italy

The countryside which surrounds Orvieto is a spectacular mix of river plains, Apennine foothills, volcanic formations and wooded hills, providing an ideal and unspoilt habitat for many of Umbria’s native creatures. Walking and cycling holidays throughout the Orvieto region thrive, as the quality of life and nature is so high. The national parks of the area further protect the natural inhabitants of the Orvieto region, and also create fantastically picturesque leisure areas for locals and visitors. The Lake of Corbara National Park is a wonderful place walk and hike, as well as fish. Canoeing along the calm water surface with a fishing rod is an unbeatably relaxing experience, and if you want to get the adrenaline flowing again, try gushing through the Forra di Prodo gorge in a white water raft.

The many vineyards which adorn the lower slopes of the Apennine foothills provide the grapes from the famous Orvieto wines which you will undoubtedly try during your stay in an Orvieto villa. Orvieto wine is a favourite on the global market, and is still made with traditional methods. Wine tours of Orvieto villas and wineries are available from many vineyards.

Almost every village or town you stumble across during your time in a self catering Orvieto holiday rental will hide an ancient monument with some degree of importance to the historical development of Umbria, Tuscany or Lazio.

There is a festival or event in the city during almost every month of the year, meaning that there are never two Orvieto holidays the same. Late June until early July is possibly the most popular time to take an Orvieto villa as the Orvieto Musica Festival swings into town, a huge celebration of chamber music which attracts musicians from across the globe.

Truly, an exceptional place to stay! Quite simply, everything was perfect.

5 of 5
Where to begin? With Ornella and Piero's kindness and thoughtfulness! Wonderful hosts, thinking of everything, though without intruding on our wish to relax and to have a simple, quiet time. The apartment is stunningly situated, both apparently on top of the world, with all Umbria beneath it but also is a part of the little collection of fine medieval buildings of San Giovenale, as well as a stone's throw from everything we could wish for in the way of cafes, restaurants, specialist food shops, churches, palaces, museums, historic wells, caves and numerous other sights and views. We spent a week wandering this way and that and were always finding something new to interest us. The apartment itself is charming. It is a cool refuge from the heat of the sun, fully and thoughtfully equipped and we could have happily prepared our meals there but in fact chose only to drink wine and eat peaches from the market at home, preferring to be thoroughly lazy and to try out many of the very many fantastic eating places around the town. We had such a relaxing holiday. Thank you so much to our hosts!

Perfect holiday at Pratelle

5 of 5
Needless to say that the setting and layout of the Pratelle villa is perfect. With woods around it, on a hill of 450m high, we enjoyed a nice breeze even during the hottest days. We were there for a week (what a shame, should have spent more time), 11 people, four generations spanning ages from 91 to 7 months. The rooms were spacious, well equipped and clean, the facilities and amenities were as you would expect form a villa at this level. We enjoyed and made good use of the built-in barbecue and pizza oven and of course of the nice swimming pool. Liliana, the local manager was very friendly and forthcoming during the whole stay. Orvieto is really close for a nice tour or for shopping for groceries, but Morrano Nuovo can also provide closer and immediate needs with a small store and a nice family restaurant. All in all, Pratelle is highly recommended.
