Podere Firenzuola is located a short distance from Orvieto with fantastic views of the medieval Umbrian city. This villa is a traditional, stone, Umbrian villa that has been comfortably furnished and is surrounded by a pretty, fenced and well maintained garden.

Directly in front of the villa is the large pool which is surrounded by fencing and a hedge making it safe for children. At the pool is a pretty pergola with table and chairs for dining al fresco, however there are no views from this part of the garden.

Entering the villa there is a spacious lounge furnished with a double sofa and two armchairs around a large fireplace. The floor is paved with large terracotta tiles.

To the other side of the room is a wooden dining table with chairs. A well-equipped sideboard is against one wall. To the far end of the room is a small guest toilet.

The kitchen is nicely done and well equipped with gas hobs, microwave, oven, fridge with separate freezer and dishwasher. There is a fireplace in one corner, perfect to barbeque on wet days.

Stairs lead from the lounge to the first floor where there is the sleeping area. One of the bedrooms is a room with a full size single bed. This is perfect for children however adults will also be comfortable in it. There is a small, simple wardrobe with mirror, writing desk and chest of drawers.

The master bedroom is a large room with polished wooden bed. In the room is a large matching wardrobe with mirror and a chest of drawers. To one side stairs lead up to a room which is closed to guests. The window of the bedroom looks out over the pool.

Pros We arrived very late in the evening but were met by the very friendly owners Massimo and Serena who showed us around and gave us all the information we needed for a comfortable stay. The house was very well equipped and we were able to relax both inside and outside the house. We enjoyed the pool and lovely spacious garden and its views.
Cons nothing
Local attractions Podere Firenze is well sited for trips to the major cities in both Umbria and Tuscany by car or train. We took the train to Rome about 90 minute journey and drove to Sienna about 2 hours taking the scenic route. The nearby town of Orvetio was a lovely old town to walk around and have a nice evening meal.

Pros tout d'abord, la vue, le calme, la piscine, le confort de la maison, il ne manquait rien, l’accueil des propriétaires très sympathiques et très discret, la proximité de la ville pour les courses et la sympathie des serveurs au petit super marché simply et puis orvieto, une très belle ville perchée, et cette vue magnifique, que de bons souvenirs.
Local attractions A Ovieto, un restaurant à ne pas manquer c'est ANTICO BUCCHERO, un très bon accueil et la cuisine très bonne à recommander l'escalope au vinaigre balsamique, ensuite vous avez de très belle ville à proximité qui valent le coup d’œil comme FLORENCE , SPOLETO,SIENNE, SAN MANIGNANO, TODI, MONTEPULCIANO, PIENZA........... Et, puis à une heure et demie il y a ROME à faire le Vatican vaut le détour. Enfin de quoi passer de très bonnes vacances et de repartir avec de super souvenirs pleins la tête.

Pros Beautiful house, stunning views, very helpful owners. Light, spacious for 5, good kitchen, great pool. Orvieto wonderful town. Supermarket just down the road (Simply) open 8:30 to 8:00 Mon- Sat and morning/ evening on Sunday.
Cons Nothing
Local attractions Orvieto a lovely town. Enjoyed going over to Bolsena for lunch. Disappointed with Citta della Pieve. Grotto & Pergola in Orvieto good and reasonable. Giglio d'Oro good, different but pricey.

Pros Wir waren mit drei Kindern im Alter von 1/2 Jahr bis 6 Jahre und es war von A-Z alles super und wir würden gerne wieder kommen. Vielen Dank Serena und Massimo, Ihr seit großartige Gastgeber! Danke an das To-Toskana Team, es hat alles super geklappt!
Cons Auf das Wetter hat man leider keinen Einfluß...
Local attractions Die Städte Orivieto, Todi und Assisi sind auf jeden Fall ein muss. Ausserdem noch der Lago di Bolsena liegt ganz in der Nähe.

Pros A spacious, comfortable villa situated among vineyards with glorious views in every direction. We agree with other guests that the property is better than its photo's and description suggest. WiFi has now been installed - and works!
Dr Massimo, the gracious and charming owner, responded immediately (at 1030 pm) to a major crisis with the water heater which was fixed by the local plumber early next morning.

Excellent pool, good safety features for children,
Cons Almost nothing! Perhaps the downside of its relative isolation is that there is a 5-10 minute drive to foodshops/restaurants.
Local attractions Orvieto, with its fabulous cathedral, is the main attraction. Whilst catering for visitors, it was not overrun by tourists compared to honeypots like San Gimignano . We also loved Todi, Citta della Pieve and the trip to Bolsena. Recommended restaurants: Taverna del Perugino in Citta, La Pergola in Orvieto for atmosphere, service and good value.

Pros Die Begrüßung der Eigentümer war sehr herzlich! Sehr gepflegtes Objekt, großer Pool, sehr schöner Garten. Perfekt für Familien mit Kindern!!
Auch bei schlechterem Wetter gab es genug Erkundungsmöglichkeiten in unmittelbarer Nähe für die Kinder. (abenteuerliche Höhlen)

Pros Het uitzicht, het complete huis en de ruimte en het goed onderhouden zwembed. OOk het contact met de eigenaar was zeer plezierig en verder was het erg prettig dat de gehele tuin was voorzien van een goede omheining. Voor kleine kinderen toch een must!
Cons Helemaal niets. Of het zou de sprinkler installatie zijn die er in combinatie met de temperatuur voor heeft gezorgd dat beide auto's onder hele vervelende vlekken zitten. Een tip voor volgende bezoekers is dan ook een hoes mee te nemen voor de auto.

Pros Although only minutes away from all services, one would think that you were miles from anywhere, lost in the vineyards, high on a hilltop with magnificent views. Very rural setting centrally located to exploring lower Tuscany and Umbria. Close proximity to Orvieto, our favorite hill city. Hosts/owners were available and respondent to any/all needs. Better than shown on website. Pool was big and the house very well kept and appointed.
Local attractions Lots of great restaurants 7 minutes away in Orvieto. also, since there was a brand new grill near the pool, we grilled and cooked. Full size supermarket only 3 minutes away.
