a cosy apartment in a lovely spacious garden

  • 4 of 5

We had a very warm and Sunny fortnight at Sossogna.The garden is lovely , the pool was of great help to keep cool. The apartment is comfortable , the only disadvantage is the kitchen which is rather small.

Apart from that : it was a lovely holiday thanks to the care of the very friendly owners!

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.
