DESCRIPTION

This is a unique property because of its position, opposite the famous 'Duomo' of Orvieto, its architectural features (entrance attributed to Scalza 1583) and because of the ancient remains found on the road to one side of the property. But above all this property is unique because of its large reception room hung with beautiful painted tapestries from the 18th century and the windows overlooking the Duomo, so close that you feel you can reach out and touch it.


The property, which has been beautifully renovated and is in an excellent condition, consists of a first floor apartment of approximately 280 sq.m., 113 sq.m. of terrace again with a view of the 'Duomo', a small garden (135 sq.m. suitable for parking up to 5 cars with access directly from the square in front of the 'Duomo' and a garage space for 1 car in the condominial parking lot.

This property would make an ideal upmarket B&B due to its location, the wonderful terrace, ideal for serving breakfast on in the summer, the marvellous dining room with its painted, vaulted ceiling for breakfast in those cooler months and the wonderful tapestry reception room where the guests can sit just soaking up the atmosphere. Each bedroom has its own bathroom and there is that all important parking on the premises. A truly wonderful opportunity.

LOCATION

Umbria is known as the green heart of Italy, it has a spectacularly dramatic landscape where can be found lush green forests, rolling hills, sleepy little hill towns and peaceful valleys. 

Among Umbria's most interesting towns are Orvieto, with its medieval charm and magnificent cathedral, Perugia with its cobblestone streets, Deruta just south of Perugia, considered by many to be the ceramics capital of Italy, Todi a beautiful medieval town, Assisi still as peaceful as when St. Francis lived there and Gubbio, the beautifully preserved hill town that pre-dates the Etruscan. 

The city of Orvieto stands on a rocky outcrop in the centre of a green valley. A medieval city, extremely charming, rich in art and very impressive. The landscape, the architecture, the cathedral, the old town, the well of Saint Patrick, local crafts, a city not to be missed. It is also a city full of events … to name just one, for fans of good music and jazz, the Umbria winter jazz festival.

Lake Bolsena, is also only a short drive away, with its medieval towns on the lake's shore and its sandy beaches, ideal for a day of relaxation. The A1 motorway is about 15 minutes away making trips to both Rome and Florence possible in about 90 minutes.
