My husband, sister, dog, and I enjoyed our short visit at Cioccoleta tremendously. It is very convenient to Orvieto, but also provides tremendous opportunities for walking among the vineyards or relaxing with a good book amidst the beautiful rolling Umbrian hills. Our hostess was incredibly attentive and kind, and her homemade breakfast was the best I've had in Italy. Thank you for a lovely visit, we hope to return soon!

We definitely made the right choice in booking at Cioccoleta. Angela looked after our every need. It was no trouble for her to prepare an American breakfast for us. The accommodation is excellent, very clean, great breakfasts, a beautiful pastoral setting overlooking the beautiful city of Orvieto. Her father-in-law was very charming and gave us a hand up in the old city. We have fond memories of our stay there last June and would, without hesitation, recommend this B & B to everyone.

Room Tip: A room facing the town of Orvieto would be excellent, otherwise any room would be wonderful.

Even though Angela (who speaks English) could not be there, her Uncle and Mother (who do not speak English) took very good care of us.

This place is beautiful, nice rooms, and is very reasonably priced. Only complaint is the bed was very firm.

You will love this place.

We were planning to stay in Orvieto but after experiencing traffic problems in other small towns opted to stay at Agriturismo Cioccoleta . We are so pleased we did as Angela really looked after us in all areas of hospitality. Rooms are spacious & clean. Orvieto is a short drive of 5 minutes away and the restaurant recommended by Angela (Le Grotte del Funaro ) was very good. Our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer as we were due to fly out the following day. Would have no hesitation in recommending this establishment to anyone visiting this charming area.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Cioccoleta in Oct 2011. It was everything we had dreamed of! This beautiful Italian farmhouse exceeded our expectations in many ways, and at a reasonable price! Thank you, Angela and family, for warmly welcoming us and for adding to our wonderful memories of our time in Italy!

We especially enjoyed the freshly made breakfasts (farm fresh eggs, cappucinos, amazing variety of homemade baked goods). What a wonderful way to start the day! We also appreciated all the time taken to provide us with directions and suggestions. Agriturismo is a wonderful way to experience life in another country, as long as you have a car - so much more charming than a boring hotel!

Room Tip: All are gorgeous!

We enjoyed our stay in this charming, fresh and comfortable inn. The country side is lovely and we enjoyed hearing about the farm and its history, and meeting Angela and her family. We are a family of four, and our two adjoining rooms were convenient and spacious. Breakfast was delicious and ample, and we enjoyed tasting the various homemade jams and other treats. We wish that we had been able to stay more than one night and further explore the area. But lacking more time this was a wonderful base for a short visit to Orvieto on our way from Tuscany to Rome. We recommend it.

I highly recommend this gorgeous place, we wish we had been able to stay on longer. The building and gardens are postcard perfect, peaceful and idyllic, and with the hostess Angela's excellent directions, not that hard to find, even late at night at the last minute, which is when we were coming.

Angela was extremely good at making us feel welcome and cosy straight away, and even though it was quite late at night when we arrived, she kindly showed us around, offered us a choice of two rooms, provided us with glasses and plates for an impromptu dinner we put together from grocery items and local wine, on a lovely balcony with fairy lights, looking out over the garden under the stars.

The interior design and landscaping are really beautiful and well thought out, and there are gorgeous little nooks and crannies throughout. The breakfast was also delicious and generous, and at no point did we feel rushed or hurried on our way.

The area of Orvieto is really pretty, but not far from mod cons like petrol and groceries. We used it as a stop off between Rome and Florence, but it really deserved more time. We enjoyed it as a couple, but it would also make a great friends, solo, or family stay.

Our plan now is to win lotto and offer to buy the place! Just gorgeous, can't rate it highly enough. Thanks so much, Angela.
