This romantic property of 5 villas has excellent views of the Umbrian hills covered with wheat fields that surround it. In the well maintained gardens there is a large pool with hydro-massage and sun-beds from which you can admire the stunning views.

In the garden there is a communal barbeque. Although each villa has its own furnished terrace near the barbeque there is a communal outside eating area with a table and 4 chairs which has night time illumination and pretty views over the pool and to the hills beyond during the day.

There are many activies easily accessible from Villa Alfina, some of these include sailing lessons on the Bolsena lake, horse riding in the nearby village called Porano, clay pigeon shooting, and walking. The property includes a covered parking for the guests use.

The owner’s villa is a few hundred meters away through the trees from Villa Alfina. He is a doctor and will be happy to provide you with all the information you require about the area.


The owner has a well behaved dog that occasionally visits the property, therefore pets are not allowed here.

Pros Vrijwel alles! Allereerst de prachtige reis erheen langs Orvieto, het warme onthaal door de eigenaars, het hoogwaardig ingerichte appartement met waterval douche, het aankomstpakket, de prachtige omgeving (nabij grens Toscanae/Umbrie/Lazio) met vele bezienswaardigheden, het grote zwembad dat goed schoon werd gehouden. Het taartje op de laatste avond. De tuin met de grote oude boom en het bankje eronder met uitzicht over Umbrie voor een rustig moment...ik wil zo weer terug!
Cons Er is voor ons slechts 1 minpuntje geweest en dat was dat naar onze smaak de matrassen te zacht waren...
Local attractions Favoriete restaurant: met kop en schouders La Fontana in Montefiascone, vooral de pasta van het huis! Verdere bezienswaardigheden: Orvieto, prachtig, prachtig. Civita di Bagnoregio voor het prachtige uitzicht, Montefiascone voor de wijn, restarant en ligging, meer van Bolsena en omgeving

Pros The central location of Villa Alfina to numerous attractions : Rome, Florence, Siena and Perugia. Additionally it was tucked away in a beautifully quiet rural location but within a 15 minute easy drive to all of the local facilities, shops, restaurants, etc
Cons Because it is high up in the mountain, it can be colder than expected in the evenings..which we were a little unprepared for.

Quels ont été les point forts de vos vacances? - Un pays très accueillant et riche de traditions (cuisine ) et de cultures ( peintures, Histoire...)
- Une maison très bien équipée et décorée avec gout ,
- Un parc et une piscine magnifiques et très bien entretenus,
- Un endroit très reposant et bien situé entre Rome et Florence
Quelle est votre impression générale concernant l'hébergement? Notre impression est excellente; Cet hébergement, les équipements, la situation ainsi que l'accueil sont de très bonne qualité.
Avez vous eu de mauvaises surprises? aucune.
Avez vous d'autres commentaires? Nous sommes ravis de notre premier séjour en Italie et nous comptons bien y retourner.
Nos enfants ont aussi adorés cette semaine à Mélo : la piscine, les petits déjeuners sur la terrasse, les copains rencontrés et même une connexion wifi pour notre adolescente...
Un grand merci à Silvia et Césidio pour leur accueil très sympathique et attentionné.

What were the highlights of your holiday? Orvieto, civita de bagnoregio, the cascades at Terni, Montefiascone, and the food!!
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Really lovely conversion of an old house into apartments. Melo was comfortable and had everything we needed. The grounds were well kept and beautiful and the pool and poolside were lovely. Only comment would be that the plastic loungers were THE MOST UNCOMFORTABLE we had ever sat on. I also think the information folder in the house was a little short on information - and some of the leaflets were in Italian so hard to follow.This is a minor point as we like exploring anyway but some people might like to know a bit about some of the fantastic places near at hand -such as civita de bagnoregio, which is stuning and a must see.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? just the cost of everything -but that is due to the recession.
Do you have any other comments?
