My husband I spent three wonderful days with Daniela and Marco at their little piece of heaven on earth! Great company, wonderful food, comfortable bed...and peace and quiet with the option to explore in nearby Orvieto, Civita di Bagnoregio, Assisi, Siena and Florence. Daniela and Marco fixed us delicious meals, offered recipes, tasty wine and after dinner treat of limoncello. We stayed up way later than intended sitting around the cozy dining room table chatting about food, family, art, music and politics!
Rome was beautiful, Orvieto quaint and friendly, Florence visually overwhelming but the best part of our vacation was with Daniela, Marco, Miles, Quilt and Lucy. We left feeling as though we added new members to our family!
Until we meet again...
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Agriturismo Antica Olivaia is a charming 17th century stone farmhouse nestled in a protected nature reserve and located near the ancient hill town of Orvieto. This recently restored country inn offers its guests six spacious rooms with en suite bathrooms, a beautiful private pool and breathtaking views of Orvieto and the Umbrian countryside. Conveniently located between three of Italy's most beautiful regions, it is the ideal place from which to discover the extraordinary Umbrian countryside and many towns such as Civita di Bagnoregio, Todi, Perugia, Assisi, Montefalco, Spoleto, Montepulciano, Montalcino, and Pienza. The owners, Marco and Daniela, prepare dinner 3 times a week for their limited number of guests and meals are eaten together family style on the veranda under the stars. Informal cooking lessons can also be organized in the afternoons usually in conjunction with dinners. Marco, Daniela and their furry friends look forward to welcoming you to the Antica Olivaia...A slow farm for a slow life! ... more less
