Overview

Description

Map

On a beautiful, winding road between Orvieto, 3km/2 miles from the property, and Porano, 2km/1.5 miles. Both are dramatically located on hilltops: Orvieto is by far the larger, with plenty of shops around its base and great restaurants - and a gorgeous, striped Duomo - on top; Porano is charming and virtually unknown, boasting a fortress, a weekly market, a bank, a few shops, a handful of restaurants and bars, and public tennis courts. Bolsena and Montefiascone, in Lazio, can be reached in less than 30 minutes. Todi is about an hour's drive.

Airports nearby:

Airports: Florence and Rome, under 2 hours.

The villa had everything we needed - it was well provided with kitchen equipment. The house was cleaned mid week, and sheets and towels were changed on the Saturday in the middle of our 2 weeks stay.

We have had a fabulous stay at La Grande Quercia - we loved it! Outstanding for two reasons - Anna Rita's kindness and friendliness - she is so lovely! She cooked us a superb meal one night - the highlight of our holiday. And the views of Orvieto - simply sublime! Orvieto itself is a wonderful city to wander round - we walked just about every street of it, and into every church. We just loved it!

The villa more than lived up to expectations. It was a comfortable environment where we could all relax and have fun. The pool, table tennis and gardens provided everything we needed on site. Anna Rita was a lovely hostess, kind and helpful but never intrusive.We loved the layout and décor of the villa. The view of Orvieto and the cathedral was the icing on the cake!

Perfect villa for a family holiday Accurately answered my questions about the villa. Very good at responding to my enquiries. The division between and the booking and service teams was potentially confusing. A single named contact would be helpful.

Met again, Annarita, we have had a wonderful stay in your villa at la grande Quercia! The view is to die for and the pool is wonderful. Annarita's cooking was restaurant quality and our month water at the memory! In Orvieto, we would recommend Orvieto Underground for an amazing tour of Etruscan, Medieval and WWII caves. PTD

Yet again, Annarita, we have had a wonderful stay in your villa at La Grande Quercia! The view is to die for and the pool is wonderful. Annarita's cooking was restaurant quality and our mouths water at the memory! In Orvieto we would recommend "Orvieto underground" for an amazing tour of Etruscan, Medieval and WWII caves.

Grazie mille Annarita! The villa and the pool were perfect and we much appreciated the meal that Annarita prepared for us. We never tired of the wonderful views of Orvieto from the terrace and the well behaved and charming cats were an added bonus. We would also like to thank Mirko for the fascinating tours of the Etruscan tomb and his explanation of the impressive frescoes. As regards restaurants, we can recommend The Trattoria del Conte and we also enjoyed the treat meal at the Fattoria La Cacciata near Panzano. Arrivederci!

Two lakeside restaurants are also worth of mention: The Rivafiorita on Lago di Vico and the not too hard to find Trattoria di Giggetto on Lago di Bolsena. Lots of excursions mentioned in the house-book, we would recommend the Villa Farnese in Caprola. Arrivederci! Thanks!

We have spent a very enjoyable week. Annarita is an excellent hostess - kind and helpful - and an excellent cook. She provided us with two meals, for one of which some of us helped in preparing pasta, tomato sauce and a chocolate cake. We have mainly stayed close to home with few visits to Orvieto and a tour of the Etruscan tombs with Murto - highly recommend. A visit to Bagnoregio makes an easy excursion. The Osteria del Ponte looks permanentely closed but there is a fair selection of restaurants and bars in the Civita itself. We endorse the recommendation for Trattoria del Conte where we had a good lunch, as we did in the elegant garden of the Sette Consoli in Orvieto. You can get good take away pizza from the pizzeria in Porano - new town. P.S. Did anyone mention the view of Orvieto?

Going home now after spending 2 weeks in this lovely house. we came mainly for the Corteo Corpus Domini in Orvieto which did not disappoint. Having spent many holidays in this part of Italy we weren't pressed to visit about seeing everything and were content to relax at the house enjoying the amazing views and generally chilling out. However we had managed to miss Civita di Bagnoregio on previous visits so were grateful for the top tip about going there early! It's hard to have a bad meal in Umbria and ours varied from plain and simple to fine dining - everywhere a joy. So we had a lovely time here coinciding our visit with haymaking and lots of poppies in the fields. Our hostess was super helpful and attentive to everything and we would visit again especially to watch, glass in hand, the swifts and/or swallows joyfully flying over the pool.

Had a great family holiday in this lovely villa. Annarita was always helpful and cooked an amazing meal for us the night we arrived. Visited lots of places - a few recommendations: Siena (1h and 30mis by car), Civita del Bagnoregio, Lake di Bolsena: Todi and of course Orvieto. Also did a day trip to Rome which was excellent you can get a fast inter city train to Rome in 1hr. Italian food and wine were always good and we ate and drank our fair shave and boosted local gelato sales! In addition to Annarita's excellent meal we would recommend the cafe' bar in Tamburino for cappuccino and the restaurant San Severo. Many other really good restaurants in Orvieto. the cots are lovely. Thank you for a great holiday The Bishops

The view from the patio is unbeatable. The outdoor living, including the pool, fall into the "sublime" category. The hosts (Annarita and Sabina) are extremely friendly and helpful. The accommodation is comfortable. The third bedroom (with the mezzanine beds) is not ideal for adults since access to the bathroom at night requires one to navigate down a staircase.

We have just had five wonderful days at La Grande Quercia move perfect by the beauty of the farm, the breath-taking view and warmth and care of Annarita and Sabina. By popular vote, the dinner which Annarita prepared for us on the patio was the highlight of all our culinary experiences. We really appreciated the La Grande Quercia house book notes which provides all the information we need - and we enjoyed sending this book, getting insight and ideas from other guests' experiences. Thank you for a wonderful stay! Owen and Susan (Cape Town, South Africa) - Norhest, Allan and Robin

Traveling with Cornel and Laura, We agree our expectations were exceeded! It was the perfect place! Gazing over beautiful sunrise and sunset highlighting the magnificent view of Orvieto. The comforts of home after a day of travel to Florence, Assisi, Spleto, Orvieto, Porano - so many places to explore! The Etruscan tomb was very, very special. As was the incredible home cooked meal by Annarita upon our arrival will recommend those experiences to others! We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of your country, spend time in the local market to prepare authentic Italian dishes for our evenings and ate at many great restaurants! The wine was excellent as well!! Our first trip to Italy. It could not have been better!! Mark, Jayna, Robbie and Daniel - Charlotte, NC, USA

Fabulous house near Orvieto. This was our 7th time in Tuscany and Umbria and one of the finest rental houses (clean, fully equipped, perfect location).

We had a wonderful time exploring Umbria and relaxing at the villa. We loved the view, the sheep, the garden and the pool..pretty much we loved everything! We stopped everyday to have a cappuccino at the place in Tamburino and it was the best we have ever had. We hope to come back to explore new wineries and sights as well as rediscover our favorites from this trip.
