À propos de ce logement
With panoramic views across the rolling Umbrian hills, two detached rural houses close together on the same land. They are furnished full of traditional local character. Ideal for small groups to relax in serenity and nature in all seasons. Lovely base to visit Umbria, Lazio and Tuscany.
Two separate and welcoming houses full of traditional Umbrian character. The houses are situated on three acres of land surrounded by olive trees which provide refined oil, apple, quince, plum, pomegranate, walnut trees, blackberry bushes, vines with Trebbiano grapes for wine-making. All this scenery creates some breath-taking panoramic views.
Opportunity to rent both houses together in any season or to rent just one house for a lower price. Please do send us a quick message via AirBnB enquiringly about the availability before trying to book. Thank you.
In addition to three double beds in the bedrooms there are also a portable child's single bed and two double sofa beds for any additional guests. You can easily host 6-11 people easily.
Please note children under 5 do not pay.
This is a rural house built in the 1940's charmingly decorated in a traditional Umbrian style with stone, exposed wooden beams and terracotta tiled floors yet fully furnished with modern conveniences for your comfort.
There are two large double bedrooms each with picturesque views and king sized beds. The master bedroom has a working fireplace for winter and a large colonial style ceiling fan for summer. Two spare single beds are also available to add to either bedroom.
Listen to some music and relax with some books or games in front of the log burning fire in the large lounge. Here there is a comfortable king sized sofa bed, chairs and other traditional olive wood furniture. There is also a TV, DVD player, stereo and a selection of English and Italian DVDs and CDs for you.
There are two bathrooms - one internal and one external - and a third toilet in a utility room.
The cellar is under the lounge and contains wine-making and olive picking equipment.
Visit a local food market and cook up a wonderful feast in the fully equipped country style kitchen which includes a traditional open oven and a range oven. This is a home from home for you to enjoy cooking and entertaining in any season.
There is a beautiful large terrace with outdoor furniture and a gas barbecue perfect for al fresco meals whilst you enjoy the tranquil views.
Relaxing listening to the crickets and watching the views at sunset -under the oak tree - perhaps with a glass of chilled local Orvietto wine is one of our favourite things to do.
A 360cm diameter and 80 cm deep inflatable pool, table football and other outdoor toys are available for children ( and adults!) to have fun with.
There is private parking.
This house can be rented separately or with the smaller house.
Smaller house or lodge
This is a separate independent smaller charming house about 20m from the main house, restored and renovated in 2009 in a traditional style with stone, exposed beams and terracotta tiled floors also.
There is a double bedroom with a king sized bed and a double sofa bed for extra guests in the spacious lounge. This house can sleep 2-4 people comfortably.
There is also a working log fire in the lounge.
The kitchenette is fully-equipped with a sink, hob, fridge and utensils for you to enjoy self-catering if you want.
There is also a separate bathroom with shower, toilet, bidet, towels and a hairdryer.
There is another terrace at the front of the lodge where you can enjoy eating al fresco whilst enjoying the peaceful views.
Again this house is available to rent separately if you prefer.

Échanges avec les voyageurs
We live in England but we are always available for advice and support by phone or email or in person if we are in Italy as we really enjoy meeting our guests.
I speak fluent English in addition to native Italian.
As we live abroad, we rely on our friendly and helpful next door neighbours, Rosalba and Desiderio to welcome our guests at check-in.
They are happy to assist with any immediate needs as they are very familiar with the houses, the surrounding land and region.
If you would like to see more photos and information then please do "like" our (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) page "Valle Figliola Casa Vacanze" and browse through the content there.
We are trying to have a swimming pool in by 2017 although we have the large inflatable pool you are welcome to use in the meantime. There are also three local swimming pools and sports grounds with football pitches and other sports - two in Otricoli and one in Calvi until then.....
We will pay for professional cleaning before and after your stay but please leave our home clean and tidy anyway.
Please remember to empty your waste and recycling in bins before the end of your stay. There is an A4 sheet of paper in the kitchen which explains which day you will need to put each bin outside the gate between 5-8am for collection later that day.
Please be careful not to leave any rubbish outside as the birds or animals will rip it apart and make a mess.
Most importantly have fun and we hope you enjoy the houses as much as we do!
