About our home

My beautiful historical Villa Monteporzano in the country of Orvieto (4 km from the city) has been belonging to my noble Umbrian family since it was built in 1800, it has ancient frescoes and family furniture. My grandmother Maria Luisa Fiumi, an important poetess of 1930, wrote in these walls her poems about Umbria. Completely refurbished a few years ago it offers an unforgettable stay. It is on 2 floors and is surrounded by a wide private fenced garden with centuries' old trees, It has two living-rooms with Sky-TV and music devices, one huge full kitchen with fireplace and table for 10. It sleeps 10 guests in 5 wide elegant master bedrooms and 5 bathrooms ensuite. Close to the Villa the guesthouse can sleep 4-6 people in each of 5 apartments. An elegant 'roman' style pool (7m x 14m) with a veranda-patio, garden with roses and olive groves is close to the villa with an amazing view of Orvieto rocks and the Cathedral. These olive groves produce a really delicious organic extra virgin olive oil. Orvieto is a medieval lively beautiful city with nice shops, restaurants/trattoria, wine-cellars, cultural and archeological tours, 1 hour north of Rome and close to the Tuscan border. My Villa is available for swaps from October to April, in the months May/June/July/August and September it is available for rent, and I am glad to offer special reduced rates for LHS guests. Villa Monteporzano is a beautiful place for your holiday in Italy!
