Il Mandorlo at Casale Bellaluce, Canale Nuovo - Orvieto - Orvieto in Umbria

1 bedroom 1 bathroom 2 guests In Resort with Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

Casale Bellaluce is a traditional stone built house, which was completely renovated in 2003 into 4 apartments. The makeover has been done in a very sympathetic manner, keeping many of the original features, yet bringing the property up to date and providing all the expected modern comforts. The large inviting swimming pool is positioned in one corner of the garden; it is completely surrounded by fencing with a gate for safety. The paved pool surround is furnished with sun loungers, chairs and umbrellas. From the pool and garden you have far reaching views across farmland to the rolling Umbrian hills in the distance.

The original farmhouse was built on this plot around 1000 AD, although the current house is much later. It was also at one time a Benedictine Monastry which is why there is the church attached to one side of the building. The area itself has been inhabited for far longer than that, it was during the renovation work that a Roman cistern was found. The property has three separate apartments and a detached cottage. The three apartments are located in the main building and the cottage is located opposite the main house. The largest apartment is on the first floor while the ground floor houses the two smaller apartments. Each accommodation has its own private outside space where you can enjoy dining al fresco. There is a 13th century chapel attached to the left side of the house which has lovely 16th century frescoes inside.  The chapel is still consecrated and at the end of July each year there is a service held to celebrate a local religious festival.

The villa is the smallest of the ones on site being a single building with a kitchen dinning area, a bedroom and bathroom. There is a separate patio, outdoor area off the connecting area between the three rooms. We were the only people at the site for most of the time. It was all very well presented. The owner lives locally and he or his staff were on site every day tending to garden and lawns, cleaning the pool etc. They were not intrusive and if we hadn't been up early would not even have noticed them. The area is relatively quiet with some noise from the restaurant (JOVEZ) about 400 metres away infrequently.

We would definitely return here if we come back to the area. The owner was extremely friendly and more than willing to help with any request.

The apartment lacked a few items such as larger glasses, enough power points or additional sockets and some cooking utensils.
Local attractions The local villages are Lubriano and Bagnereggio, both of which are picturesque and have a number of quality restaurants. We tried several in Lubriano Il Frantoio is in an old cave dwelling within the cliffs off Lubriano. We went twice it was so good.Ristate Vecchio Mulano was also very good and has a great dinning area on their terrace overlooking Bagnireggio.. Lubriano has a good market. Orvieto is well worth a visit. Its another hilltop top town with outstanding views. Other places we visited from here included Perugio, Assisi, Siena and Lake Baleno. The driving was relatively easy and the roads were not particularly crowded.ed
