Overview

Perched on a hillside above Orvieto, this lovely 14th century farmhouse is surrounded by acres of olive groves and meadows, with beautiful views of Orvieto on one side and rolling farmlands on the other. Recently restored, the main house on one level has been fitted with air-conditioned bedrooms, new kitchens and bathrooms while retaining their old terracotta floors and beamed ceilings. A large dining loggia for al fresco meals enjoying beautiful views of the countryside and of the city of Orvieto. The swimming pool is set a few steps below the loggia on a broad stone terrace furnished with loungers and umbrellas. In the heart of the Orvieto Classico region, this area has much to offer anyone who enjoys good food and wine, interesting sightseeing and long rambles on foot or on horseback.

Clients reviews

La Grande Quercia is beautiful and ideally located in Umbria to enjoy the country hill towns. The views over the valley looking to Orvieto are spectacular. Everything in the house is comfortable and perfect for relaxing. We had the most extraordinary week at La Grande Quercia and would recommend it to anyone who seeks a perfect Italian villa vacation! I thought the service at TN was excellent - it was fast and very thorough.

Lovely peaceful countryside location yet close to Orvieto. The property guardian (Anna) was very helpful and responded to any query very quickly.

The view was spectacular and the pool and garden areas were lovely and extremely well maintained. We loved eating on the terrace with its ever-changing view of Orvieto.

The situation was wonderful, with fantastic views over the town of Orvieto. The spaciousness of the property was really good, especially with a large family.

Views of Orvieto were fantastic, great location for touring, property was extrememly clean and well cared for. Anna the caretaker was very nice and helpful as we were tired and lost on arrival. She met us in Perano and got us to the property. The location was really wonderful and Orvieto itself terrific.

La Grande Quercia's location is marvellous. Sitting in our loggia we admired Orvieto's Duomo. Both the houses are charming, the guest house has a sophisticated living room and master bed room, and the main house is great for whole party to cook together and have meals either indoors or in the loggia. And every bed room had it's own bath room - that is luxury!

Great location, bright, airy with good facilities. Private with great view. Pool was excellent esp for kids. Unusual wooden design of bits of interior was good.
