Overview

About the property

Up to 16 guests in two units. En-suite bathrooms. 100% quiet, charming, comfy

Facing the suggestive, breathtaking view of Valle dei Calanchi, Le Grotte is situated amongst green meadows and shady woods (wildlife such as deers, wild boars, porcupines etc. can be spotted at times) near the amazing town of Civita di Bagnoregio, between Orvieto and Viterbo, the very heart of Tuscia. This beautiful country house consists of 2 independent, well-furnished and cozy units of different size comfortably sleeping a total of 16.

The farm lays on 50 hectares of fodder cropping and olive groves, with selected rearing of competition horses breed. Along with natural farming, we produce honey and a delicious extra-virgin olive oil which we make available for our guests to purchase. Le Grotte is very well connected with the Milan-Bologna-Florence-Naples A1 highway (the backbone of Italy) and represents the starting point for naturalistic, historical and cultural itineraries to Umbria (Orvieto, Todi, Assisi, Spoleto and Perugia) at only 15 km., Lazio and Tuscany, with Viterbo, Bolsena lake, Bomarzo, Villa Lante, Castel d'Asso, Tarquinia, Siena, Florence, Rome and the prettiest Tyrrhenian shores at a stone’s throw.

Several features such a very well-kept, fenced swimming pool, a deck, a large garden equipped with tables, chairs and a barbecue – so you can swim, relax, cook and eat outside – make of Le Grotte one of the most comfortable, relaxing places to spend your holidays.

Le Grotte is situated at approximately 500 meters above the sea level and is sheltered from excessive summer heat by the rich surrounding vegetation – plenty of scenty herbs in season. Both the house and the pool are independent and for individual use only. Furnished with elegant antiques and crafts, the property has been restored with extreme attention to the original structure and design and is now one of the prettiest properties in the area.

The main unit is on two floors and comfortably sleeps up to 12 people. The ground floor features a livingroom, a very large sitting-dining room, a fully equipped kitchen with a fireplace, whereas the first floor is made of four bedrooms, each with its own bathroom and a view over the breathtaking Calanchi Valley and/or the garden with the pool.

Comfortably sleeping 4, the smaller unit features a fully equipped kitchenette and 2 bedrooms, each with its own bathroom (shower).

The property is being rented to one party at a time and would be reserved for your exclusive use.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"This property is perfect for large groups looking for a relaxing stay away from the cities. It is kind of remote but close enough to shops, nature (Lago di Bolsena, Cascata delle Marmore) and within an hour drive from very nice cities (Orvieto, Todi, Siena,...). The house can comfortably accommodate up to 18 people. Each room has its own bathroom which is a major plus. Eating is possible inside and outside for the whole group. The swimming pool is well equipped. The park is magnificent with deers all around. For the equipment nothing essential was really missing. The owners are responsive and friendly, always available (Didier C.). We stayed at Sallegrotte in June 2014 and totally enjoyed it. The rural setting is wonderful and the view of Civita di Bagnoregio right across the valley absolutely breathtaking. Great pool, total comfort both inside and outside, large rooms, clean, cozy house. Absolutely recommended (The Levines).

Lovley Villa with dreamlike setting. Spacious, clean and with good beds. Large pool!

  • 4 of 5

Lovley Villa with dreamlike setting. Embedded in green hills. Divine birdsong in the morning. Spacious, clean and with good beds. Large pool with impressive cleaningsystem that didn’t smell of chlorine. Large kitchen. Pizzaowen on the backside of the house that we used - fun!

On the downside: very businesslike owner. - Keen on charging extra.

- No freebees: ex soap in the toilets/ a small wellcoming gift ex bottle of water+whine/she will buy breakfast but also charge for it

- Electricity going off several times/24hrs esp nighttime. Has been troublesome when food in fridge has’nt stayed cold.nd TV wasn’t functioning at all during our 2week stay. ( Not a word about compensation)

- Most troublesome was although that she kept textning me about these problems throuout our stay and that really spoilt my vacation.

So in spite of a perfect setup for a relaxing holiday the owners harsh attitude didn’t make it come true

Owner's Response: [ Manager response ] === Thank you. This issue was thoroughly investigated and the facts ascertained as such: = In order to accommodate the guest's own request for a late check-in (after 1:00 AM) the owner had to hire two persons. The amount paid for that service was charged to the guest upon arrival (4:30 AM). Same for some groceries the guests had asked the owner to buy in order to have breakfast at home that same morning. Both charges had been previously notified and accepted. = After the guest's reporting of electric shortages an electrician was called. Apparently a cable slack up outside the property boundaries was causing occasional electric shortages. Such a damage was fixed immediately. = Quite a few sms messages - to which the owner responded - were actually sent by the guest in the first place (date and time of the messages have been checked). = To make up for the discomfort the owner offered the guest some goods sold in the owner's shop (lotions, soap, olive oil, produces, more) that the guest gladly accepted as a compensation. * Finally, as all of the properties managed by Proprietari Associati LE GROTTE successfully took the 2018-2019 Proprietari Associati Quality and Reliability Test so being awarded the 2019 Q&R Certification. LE GROTTE is therefore to be fully trusted in terms of quality, comfort and owner’s reliability.

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

The house itself is lovely with a fantastic kitchen, comfortable beds and a great sense of style. The outside space is equally fabulous with a large pool, plenty of loungers. The house and pool were so lovely that we didn't explore an much as we'd planned, but we did manage trips to Bolsena and Capodimonte for swimming, and to Civita di Bagnoregio and Montefiescone for evening walks. The pizza oven was an added bonus; due to gluten intolerance in 2 of our party we opted to make our own dough (we were able to source the ingredients easily from the local supermarket and the one in Bagnoregio) which worked surprisingly well. One earlier review had commented on the access road to the house, and I should just say that we found the unfinished track to be no problem at all in a standard estate car. To sum up, we had a fantastic week here and hope to return for a longer break soon... Thank you :)

A very nice stay

Hi from Germany! This is a beautiful villa, deep-in-the-green, quiet, fascinating, with a great view for an even greater price. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The house is fully equipped, clean, with excellent bedding and a wonderful pool. Warmly recommended.

Fabulous! A fascinating atmosphere villa

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly located in the heart of the Tuscia region this villa is ideal for those who want to explore Central Italy at ease. It is clean, spacious, well kept and the view over Valle Calanchi and Civita Bagnoregio is truly breathtaking. Nice, wide rooms with excellent beds. Large, well equipped kitchen. The woods surrounding the property are fascinating (we spotted little deer at times) and the pool is large, safe for children and in perfect working order. Stores and shops are about 10 minutes walk. Absolutely recommended.

Top accommodation - Great hosts

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row that I have stayed at this beautiful house. This will be my go to place when I travel to Tuscia. The house is immaculate and feels like home, with a true magic atmosphere as it's surrounded by woods where wildlife can be spotted at times. Close to Viterbo and only one hour to Rome. The views, especially from the master bedroom, are amazing. The owners and her family are most welcoming and provide everything needed for a short or long stay. Highly recommended.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this rental. Lara was a great host and her villa was everything we expected. Immaculate, beautiful views, tremendous fireplace that we used every night and a short walk to amazing places. Very romantic, charming house and surroundings. Bagnoregio and Civita, Lake Bolsena and Viterbo made for an amazing end to our honeymoon. Thank you!

Car: necessary

- Coast/Beach:

At Le Grotte your choice is between the lake (Bolsena, about 9 kms.) and the seashore (Tyrrhenian, about 70 kms.). Both great - and you can decide on the spot where to spend your day at the beach.

- Travel:

Even though Rome is by far the best choice for flying to Central Italy, the nearest airport is Perugia at 68 kilometres. The nearest motorway is Orvieto at 12 kilometres and so is the railway station. Obviously a car is highly recommended.

- Distances:

Le Grotte is very well connected with the Milan-Bologna-Florence-Naples A1 highway (the backbone of Italy) and represents the starting point for naturalistic, historical and cultural itineraries to Umbria (Orvieto, Todi, Assisi, Spoleto and Perugia) at only 15 km. and Lazio and Tuscany, with Viterbo, Bolsena lake, Bomarzo, Villa Lante, Castel d'Asso, Tarquinia, Siena, Florence, Rome and the prettiest Tyrrhenian shores at a stone’s throw.

- Further Details:

Nearby activities and features are mountain biking/cycling, rafting, horseback riding, archery, archeology (several Etruscan and Roman sites in the nearby), windsurfing, vineyard and wine making farms, olive oil mills, tennis, hiking, spas, flea markets and antique shopping, more. You would not have enough time to see it all!
