Michelle's apt in the heart of Ovieto was wonderful. It's a 5+ star apt

  • 5 of 5

The apt was so beautifully restored and the location excellent. Orvieto has many great museums, shops, history, restaurants, views and underground caves. It's Etruscan history and relics are pre-Roman. Michelle is easy and quick with communictions. Roy Driver, the local property manager was so very helpful with everything, including getting us a taxi at 1:00 am. We all loved it.

Near perfection

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in the apartment and can affirm that it is a lovely and high-end accommodation in a perfect location in Orvieto. The following comments are not criticisms but are simply observations of features that are outside of the owners' control but that affected us none the less. We were aware of these features ahead of time but didn't anticipate that we would grow tired of them, and so decide to leave a day early. First, the apartment's location in an historic building in an old town means natural light is limited. The owners did incorporate interior lighting as well as possible. Second, while we enjoyed the generous and comfortable balcony, days of looking at the uninspired enclosed courtyard below and the wall of the building across the narrow street became somewhat oppressive for us. Again, I stress that these features are inherent in hill towns and our observations about them are purely subjective.

Were we rating the apartment alone it would get five stars without question. But, the setting of the apartment, though unchangeable, was part of our experience so we must give a four-star rating.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. This is a very old historic town. Stone tufo buildings are close together and streets are narrow. Our apartment is in the historic center located close to everything and is part of a 16th century palace. The terrace is large and fully furnished so that you can enjoy the outdoors. Most guest are busy during the day exploring the area and town so small gatherings or relaxing in the evening on the terrace have never been described as oppressive. During the summer months when the heat is intense the cool stone interior and shady courtyard are often considered a blessing.

Perfect Stay in Orvieto

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this was perfect for me, from start to finish.

Apt is in a perfect place, right near Piazza del Reppublico. Restaurants, shopping, piazzas all within easy walk.

The apt is beautiful, extremely well done. A super kitchen & great room. Master bedroom delightful. Very nice porch & lovely old building.

Roy & Deb were helpful & friendly. Can’t wait to come back next year.

A gem of a place to stay in Orvieto

  • 5 of 5

We and another couple rented Michelle's fantastic place in Orvieto for a week. Every aspect of this place is top notch including the personal attention that Michelle took to make sure our entry went smoothly. Great kitchen, comfortable beds, peaceful ambience, large bathrooms and the magic of Orvieto is steps outside your doorway. This town is one of those places that should really be savored. I can't imagine a better place to do that from. Highly recommended.

What an amazing Home in Orvieto

  • 5 of 5

Wow..what an amazing home. Plenty of space for two adults and three kids under 4. Beds were super comfortable and the bathrooms were very luxurious. Also the Kitchen! What an amazing kitchen. We ended up making pasta and pizza, and cooking for Easter Dinner in it. Has everything you need. The location is amazing. Steps away from everything. Roy, the property manager met us outside the city and guided us in. He also assisted in finding parking garage. If you are spending a week in Orvieto, this is the place to stay if you want to relax, live comfortably, and live as an Italian. Hard to be beat.

The Duomo di Orvieto is a famous cathedral, containing design elements from the thirteenth to twentieth centuries. The large rose windows, golden mosaics, bronze doors and beautiful paintings are all apart of this magnificent church. It is considered by some to be the finest Cathedral in Italy.

In the old town you can visit St.Patrick’s Well, built in 1527 based on a plan of Antonio da Sangallo il Giovane. Not far away you can visit the Palace of the Seven from 1300, the Palace of People (12th Century), Saint Andrew’s Church (12th Century), Saint Domenic’s Church (12th Century) and Saint Giovenale’s Church (11th Century). Museums in the area include Soliano Palace museums: the Museum of the Opera del Duomo and the Museum of Modern Art (Museo d’Arte Monderna Emilio Greco). Live entertainment can be enjoyed at the Mancinelli Theatre (1866) throughout most of the year. Ancient history can be explored through the Underground City and the Necropolis of the Crucifix of Tufo dating back to the Etruscan period. All of these amazing sites are within the town of Orvieto.

In keeping with Italy’s jazz tradition, the Umbria Jazz Winter Festival is held every year in Orvieto and has become a global platform for jazz artists.

Every season offers something wonderful for the visitor to Orvieto.
