Sehr ruhige, abgeschiedene, aber trotzdem nah an Orvieto gelegene Unterkunft; wunderschöner Garten

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben zu viert (2 Erw. und 2 Jugendl.) 12 sehr erholsame und entspannte Tage in Sossogna verbracht. Die Unterkunft ist genau richtig für Menschen, für die Luxusausstattung nicht vorrangig ist, die aber Einfachheit und Ursprünglichkeit mögen und zu schätzen wissen! Die Räume sind mit alten schönen Steinböden gepflastert und mit schönen alten Möbeln, aber einfach eingerichtet. Die Ausstattung der Küche ist gut und man kann gut darin kochen. Das Badezimmer ist schon etwas alt, aber alles ist sauber. Insgesamt ist die Unterkunft sauber. Im ersten Moment riecht sie leicht moderig. Mein Eindruck ist, dass dieser Geruch, den wir nicht als störend empfunden haben vom Kamin kommt, der im Herbst und Winter immer noch genutzt wird. Wir haben täglich viel gelüftet, so dass der Geruch kaum noch wahrnehmbar war. Wunderschön ist das weitläufige Gelände mit dem so schön angelegten Garten, den Wasserquellen und dem Pool. Es ist kaum ein Zivilisationsgeräusch zu hören und morgens wird man von Vögelgezwitscher wach. Raffaele, der nebenan wohnt, ist immer im Hintergrund und ansprechbar, wenn man Unterstützung braucht. Für mich ist es einer der schönsten Orte, die ich kenne, auch wenn die Unterkunft einfach ist. Ich würde sofort wieder hinfahren und beim nächsten Mal gerne länger bleiben. Es gibt von Sossogna auch eine eigene Internetseite.

Anregen möchte ich, dass es gut wäre, wenn es im Bad einen Abzieher mit langem Stiel gäbe, damit man den Boden nach dem Duschen besser trocknen kann. Außerdem könnten ein paar mehr Gläser, Tassen und Essbesteck in der Küche nicht schaden.

Schönes altes Haus, gut ausgestattet, stimmig möbliert in einer idyllischen ruhigen Umgebung, gleichzeitig sehr nah an Orvieto und somit auch zu Einkaufsmöglichkeiten. Wunderschöner Garten mit Trinkwasserquelle, Teich und Bach, großem Blumenbeet und einfachen Bänken an verschiedenen Stellen im Garten platziert. Kommunikation mit Vermieter auf Deutsch und Englisch gut möglich. Wohnung hätte etwas sauberer sein können (Spinnweben, Boden), Geschirr war auch nicht ganz sauber, Bad und Küche, sowie bereitgelegte Wäsche aber einwandfrei. Etwas störend war auch der leicht muffige Geruch im Haus, was bei einem alten Haus mit alten Möbeln aber wohl eher normal ist. Würde wieder hinfahren

Sossogna is an ancient farm features:

from the house in stone with terracotta floors and chestnut beams in the area, from 'large garden that surrounds it, from' garden and the old fig trees, chestnuts and walnuts, dry stone walls, from the sources natural and well-maintained forest that surrounds it.

In the vicinity of the house a path branches running through the hills that open the magical view of Orvieto and the nearby village of Rocca Ripesena.

Along the path, through a rich landscape of forests, springs and lakes meet castles, villages and medieval monasteries. Along this path that skirts also Etruscan and Roman archaeological sites, in about 4 hours of walking we arrive at Orvieto.

Getting in Orvieto, 8 km from the farm is like a blast from the past, its streets its narrow streets and then as a miracle the Cathedral; and its churches, squares, palaces, museums, the theater and the views enjoyed by its walls that still speak of history and the magnificent nature that surrounds it.

With trips that rarely exceed l 'hour's drive you can reach many important cities of' Umbria: Todi, Assisi, Perugia .. but also of Tuscany Pitigliano, Saturnia or Lazio Bolsena, Bagnoreggio, Viterbo and Rome 100km. A convenient way to visit Rome is by train, you park at the station of Orvieto and in about an hour we arrive at

Termini Station from where they easily reach the most famous sights of the city.
