“Come and discover the wild beauty of Umbria — Tuscany’s hidden next door neighbor and the green heart of Italy”
A few kilometers from the enchanting hilltop town of Orvieto lies the Agriturismo Antica Olivaia. This 17th century stone farmhouse is nestled in a protected nature reserve where animals run freely and where olive trees have thrived for hundreds of years.
The Antica Olivaia offers its guests a relaxing farm stay along with breathtaking views of Orvieto literally floating atop its ancient tufo rock formation with its imposing cathedral dominating the surrounding countryside and three diverse regions.
In fact, Orvieto itself is at a crossroads between three of the most beautiful regions in Italy – Umbria, Lazio and Tuscany – and this charming six room country house is the ideal point from which to discover the extraordinary Italian countryside.
This quaint bed and breakfast in Orvieto is located only fifteen minutes from the main “autostrada” or highway which connects Florence to Rome. From this base, a myriad of medieval towns and enchanting villages are located within easy reach including Civita di Bagnoregio, Bolsena, Todi, Città della Pieve, Montefalco, Spoleto, Perugia, Assisi and Montepulciano.
A vacation at the Antica Olivaia will give you the chance to do things you have never done before.
A chance to drizzle extra virgin olive oil on a piece of toasted bread while sipping on a glass of Orvieto Classico wine as you watch the sun set.
A chance to truly experience an Italian farm stay in a family atmosphere where you arrive as a guest and leave as a friend of the family.
A chance to experience the real taste of a September fig picked right off the tree or pop a sun-ripe cherry tomato in your mouth.
A chance to savor traditional Umbrian cuisine prepared with home grown organic vegetables and fruit.
A chance to take a break from everyday city life and literally “unplug” yourself from it all.
A chance to indulge in the Italian way of life and truly experience the “slow life”.
But, above all, a real chance to rediscover yourself.
So…are you ready to take that chance?
