This is a small hotel - in a gorgeous tiny village on the top of a hill outside Orvieto. It provides a great alternative to staying in a town while being only about 10 minutes drive away.
The rooms are beautifully designed - the building are old village houses but have been tastefully renovated.The bed was one of the most comfortable we have slept on in Italy and had linen sheets and good pillows.
The bathroom is gorgeous - we had just a shower but again it was the best we had come across in Italy, as was the hairdryer.
Helene is charming and made booking for us at AltoRocca for dinner. This dinner was a highlight of this trip and the restaurant is only a few minutes away. We drove but walked back after a few glasses of wine! Although a torch would have been good, it was not difficult and there was no traffic.
Breakfast is very Italian.
Helene arranged a car to take us back to Rome airport - the driver was great and let me drop off our hire car at Hertz at Orvieto Railway Station before hitting the expressway. It was only about 90 mins to Rome airport.
This is a charming place and good value with truly hospitable hosts. We wish we had a extra night there. Highly recommended.
