Agriturismo L'Elmo
Ranked #23 of 43 Specialty Lodging in Orvieto
Reviewed April 24, 2012 via mobile

This was an amazing and beautiful few days. The rooms are enchantingly rustic and the food exquisite. The people could not have been more welcoming. We travelled with 20 students and were treated with the same courtesy as special guests.

My wife and I booked our first big trip of a life time with ten days in Italy this summer. We stayed two nights in five locations and L'Elmo was our third stop. We absoulutly loved it ! We were greeted on Sunday by the owner of the farm with a big smile and a warm greeting of " Wine or Water"? So thoughtfull considdering the heat and we felt so welcome to his home. We spent the afternoon at the beautifull pool with an incredible view and quiet. We joined them for dinner and being myself a professional chef, I found the meal was wonderfully prepared and the service by the family was delightfull. They were easy to engage in conversation with a little english from them and a little italian from us and we learned a great deal about the farm, the dogs and the surroundings. We took a day trip to Todi and then to Orvietto enjoying the views and cheese farm stops along the way. The familys son Giulio was a great host ! and Rock, the Peesh dog, I mean Sheep dog accompined us on our nightly walk through the Hazelnut groves. This is the place to get away and relax with a book by the pool and enjoy the beauty and quiet. Thanks again L'Elmo

My family and I had a wonderful stay at L'Elmo in Umbria, Italy. We were there for one night and never wanted to leave!!!!!! This is a fantastic place to get away form all the hustle and bustle of the City and really enjoy how beautiful the country side of Italy is.
Besides the beauty of the hotel's surroundings they have wonderful service, clean cozy rooms, a nice restaurant with a complimentary breakfast, and many activities such as swimming and horseback riding.
After leaving we traveled on to Pompeii and we wish we would have stayed longer in Umbria. Compared to the congestion of a large city where people treat you like stupid tourists, and try to scam you. The L'Elmo hotel was very peaceful and we were treated as people. I recommend you take the time to stop and stay at this wonderful farm house in the mist of all your travels for some relaxation and i hope this review helps you in your decision.

I read the previous review, and if true, the owners have learned their lesson. The dogs were put up every night, and we slept very well. We were put in an outbuilding which was converted to rooms. The rooms were very comfortable and nicely decorated. The main house was built around 1773.

The food that they served was excellent, and the owners were very friendly. Although we didn't go swimming, the pool looked very nice too.

The previous reviewer's complaint about the agriturismo being too far out of Orvieto is unfounded, in my opinion. First, I would think you would expect a farm or vineyard to be out of town. The drive to Orvieto probably took about 15 minutes, so it was not a problem at all.

I recommend L'Elmo.

During our 3 week Tour of Italy we had planned to stay one week at this Agriturismo. We left after 4 nights.

The Farm is not of a high standard, it is OK but verging on the shabby side. The key problem however was the 4 dogs they owned, which at night were allowed to roam freely as Guard Dogs. As the farm is right next to a road, the dogs howled furiously anytime a vehicle passed. We complained following the second night of no sleep. They said they would lock them away that night, which they did and we all slept well. The fourth night however they let them out again. After being awakened at midnight and still being awake at 5 a.m. we called it a day the next morning. What surprised us was that the owners were surpised we left (and expected the full seven nights payment!).

What was good about it? A pretty relaxed location, a great swimming pool, and pretty good rustic cooking in the evenings.

What was not so good? It was advertised as being near Orvieto. Thats a matter for conjecture. IT is probably around 10 kilometres away, up a ridiculously twisting road. You had to consider whether it was worth going out at night (Orvieto being the only placeyou would be likley to go to, as there isnt really anything else in miles) as the chore of driving back really took the edge of it. Also, whilst the swimming pool was great, being a farm means that you were liable to being buzzed by flies whilst you were near the pool.
