“Fabulous experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

The setting, a small, ancient-appearing village, looking like it was carved from the face of the cliff it sits on, the decor, warm tones and tasteful, comfortable furnishings, but most of all, the generous, warm hospitality made our experience at Misia outstanding. Our host, Georgio, couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. As just one example, he recommended restaurants that we would not have found otherwise, and which gave us an authentic taste of Umbria. Our room was very private and comfortable, furnished in the same warm earth-tones found throughout the resort. An ample breakfast buffet, with pastries, breads to toast, fresh fruit, cereals, cold cuts and cheeses - and cappuccino - was served in an attractive dining room. While Misia is set in the Italian countryside, we found it an easy drive to Orvieto and the incredible Medeaval town of Civita di Bagnoregio.

Amazing location, delicious home-made breakfast, great people! I recommend - a must if you are in Orvieto area! The Rocca that overlooks it is extremely suggestive. The rooms are spacious and decorated in the most relaxing tones. Be assured your holiday will be a real vacation!

This is a new hotel, built into ancient stone walls, on a rock overlooking the Umbrian valley and the town of Orvieto. We chose it because we like places outside the city center, and Misia is really outside! It is difficult to find, and they need to put good driving directions onto their website. Once you do find the place, it is lovely. The owner is the designer and decorator, and it is beautifully done. Ultra modern decor which contrasts well with the old exterior. The rooms are large and comfortable with nice touches like real linens on the beds. They hope to open a restaurant on the property soon, but now you can have a superb dinner at the restaurant just up the hill. Once you know your way around the area, it is easy to get to the old town of Orvieto, where you can easily spend a day or two exploring the duomo, underground excavations, and lovely streets and shops. Nearby Civita de Bagnorregio is a must-see day trip.

Room Tip: Our rooms were across from the main building, and they were quite large with goo views.

We are just finishing up a three week stay in Italy, and Helena and Misia Resort provided us the absoulute best accomodations. Everything was top notch - the room and bath - clean, comfortable, nicely decorated. The breakfast provided had plenty of good things to eat and great coffee. Helena gave us a map, and great advice on how to get into Orvieto and where to eat. She was very friendly and helpful. Misia even had a few channels of english TV! If you are going to Orvieto, don't pass up a chance to stay in this wonderful resort!

Room Tip: We had room 1 and it was great - didn't see any others, but can't imagine they would be any...

This hotel is in a class of its own. A fabulous contemporary hideway located in the hills over Orvieto. The owners and operators of this hotel, Giorgio and Helena, have left no detail undone. Our suite was spacious, comfortable with all the modern conveniences you could ever need. The quality of the bedding and amenities were all first-class. The hospitality shown by the owners was really beyond what you would find at any other hotel. They provided a warm welcome and a sincere concern in helping in any way possible. They offered great recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing. If there is one area for improvement, it would be the breakfast buffet. Although totally adequate, it could use a little more variety. According to the owners, they will soon have a full spa to complement the rest of the hotel. I look forward to staying at Misia again on our next trip to Orvieto. I would highly recommend this hotel without reservation.

We stayed here with two rooms, one for my 60 + year old parents, and one for me and my four year old son. The hotel has undergone an extensive reonovation, in which the quality of materials used was a+. The rooms are very nice, great bathrooms and wonderful linen sheets. The staff/owners are lovely and accommodating. It felt more like a private retreat than a hotel. Got great recommendations for off the beaten path restaurants to eat in Orvieto. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
