Our old rustic country house, located on a green hill just a couple of minutes from the charming village of Civitella del Lago, overlooks the lake of Corbara and almost the entire valley of the Tiber. The view is breathtaking! We bet it will be challenging for your gaze! The fabulous view stretches from Monte Fiascone to the Lake of Corbara, form Monte Argentario to Monte Amiata.

 

The ancient materials such as stone and wood have been carefully renovated and restored. The House is a gateway that leads to the past and our conservative hard work warranties the splendour of the past centuries.
The fields of olive trees, the surrounding wheat fields and the huge Mediterranean garden surrounding the property will envelop your senses with the perfumes carried by the wind. The interiors are furnished with great taste and simplicity, respecting the style and the charm of the place. The ceilings with wooden beams and the terracotta or wooden  floors are characteristic of the area!

 

The spaces are organized on several levels:


- Ground floor: living room with fireplace, kitchen with dining area, outdoor terrace and bathroom.
- First floor: two double bedrooms, living room with fireplace, second kitchen connected to another outdoor terrace, bathroom.
-Second floor: two double bedrooms, a little living room and a bathroom.

 

The villa is surrounded by paved terraces located on different levels and furnished with tables and chairs. Our guests will find a huge and very well maintained Mediterranean garden furnished with chairs and benches just located in the shade of large pines, oaks and cypresses. There is also a nice swimming pool with sun loungers! This part of the garden is slightly above the house level and from there you can enjoy an amazing view during a refreshing swim. We also taught about our younger guests: you will find swings, a jumping trampoline and a volleyball/tennis net.
We also produce and sell a first quality extra virgin olive oil!

 Surroundings

Civitella del Lago :
Old medieval town built on pure white travertine blocks with breathtaking views overlooking the ancient walls of the castle of Civitella and all the Valley of the Tiber: Amazing!

 


Lake of Corbara:
The Lake of Corbara, a great scenic spot, is considered by fishermen one of the most interesting lakes of central Italy for carp fishing. Have a trial!

 


Gole del Forello:
A great natural scenery: the landscape is characterized by high rocky walls of travertine, often open cavities and caves, which descend steeply down to the Tiber running through the narrow valley.

 

Montecchio:
Montecchio is located in a panoramic position from which you see the underlying lakes of Alviano and of Corbara. The Etruscan - Roman origins of the village are testified by the remains found in the area of the Necropolis that nowadays is one of the most important area of Touristic interest.
A few kilometres from the town, you will find the ruins of the Castle of Carnano, whose history is linked to that of the lords of Baschi who extended their power in this are too.

 

Civita di Bagnoregio:
History, art, culture and traditions are the main features of a place that seems to have stopped in the past. Civita di Bagnoregio is an example of unique wonder.
Connected to the world by a long and narrow bridge, the 'dying city', has long been named in this way because of slow landslides of the old stone walls. The old town has only a cluster of medieval houses and a population of a few families.
The town overlooks the immense valley below, giving the visitors the chance to experience  an enchanting and unforgettable scenery.

Benny A. - 10/11/2015

The house itself fully complied with our expectations. It is perfectly modernized and the surroundings are stunning. The view from every window or terrace was very beautiful. The location on a slope in between small villages gave an excellent view over the Umbrian landscape. The owners were very friendly and quick to respond to our queries. The only changes we could suggest to improve the stay would be to provide some fans in the bed rooms during the nigths in the hot season. Further, the swimming pool will need some upgrading to make it level with the high quality of the house.

Peter S. - 10/11/2015

We spent 3 weeks with our 3 children in this great house in a very nice surrounding. First to mention is approaching the house: you will drive some 100 meters and this way is already part of the facilities. The olive grove you see on the pictures are belonging to the house, so as you might imagine it is quiet, nice and outstanding spacious. If your children are playing in the pool ... it's still quiet at the terrace. If you like walking, it sounds a bit strange, but for a short walk basically you could do it without leaving the property. The house: The owner is an architect, he loves proper details and you will see it everywhere. It's far over average in many aspects: Lots of nice rooms all a bit different, comfortable beds, oversize oven, lots of places to sit, all technical equipments (light, water, whatever ...) working and fine. So it is above lots of standards we have seen or rent before. You are not disturbed at all by somebody. The great view is mentioned in the house description ... yes! And you can find many places around the house to get this view. When we rent the house the pool on the photos looked a bit basic, as there had not been a platform. Good news: They build one before we arrived, so now even the pool is fine and the platform is potentially one of the nicest places to look over the olive trees to the Tiber. The owners have some hints and tips and I only can recommend following them. Again some comments on the house if you are now a bit closer to your positive decision: It is quite spacious and there is no "counted but 2nd class" room there at all. All rooms are very nice, have really comfortable beds and can be used and counted as full usable rooms. Getting there: You will have to drive some serpentines to get there ... it is typical for the whole area, and it is part of the nice location. Never seen any truck or lorry (even if it will not disturb you, the street is hundreds of meters away from the house). The advantage is that e.g. Civitella del Lago (the closest village) and many other villages or small town close to it are very very nice, have all great views and old centers. (In some of them you could set up medieval scenes). Touristic aspect: The location is some kilometers from Orvieto which by the way is worth a visit anyway in Umbria. Oh, end of max. text length ... I could proceed easily writing nice things about this house. Try it on your own ... it IS certainly nice!

Meredith M. - 03/08/2016

We were warmly greeted at the house by the owner Claudio and he couldn't have been more hospitable! The house is incredibly clean with spacious bathrooms and bedrooms. We loved cooking in the well-equipped kitchen...with the Estate's own olive oil - the best we tasted in Italy! Thank you. The pizzas at Civitella del Lago were fantastic and the view from their terrace was spectacular, but what we loved the most was relaxing in the fabulous gardens and by the pool. Claudio also recommended visiting very close by Orvieto, Todi and The lake at Bolsena which we did, and strongly suggest you don't miss these beautiful towns. We completely ran out of time....so much to see and all so close. Would not hesitate to reccommend this glorious property and the service we received from Claudio, Angela and Charme holidays.

We could not have been happier with our accommodations in Umbria! Having never been to the area before we didn’t know what to expect and were stunned by the beauty and the amazing views of the Umbrian countryside. We arrived at this house after touring Rome so the relaxed, uncrowded setting was a sheer pleasure. The house itself was fantastic – coming from the United States we simply don’t have anything that old or with so much history so it was a great treat for us. Having the modern conveniences combined with the old-world charm was much appreciated. The layout was perfect for two families (2 bedrooms on each of the upper floors) and the kitchen was exceptionally well-appointed so we could cook as much as we pleased (especially with the delicious house made olive oil!). Kids and parents alike enjoyed many hours relaxing in the pool enjoying the beautiful views of Umbria. When we weren’t relaxing in the pool we visited Orvieto, Todi and Civita de Bagnoregio, all of which were incredibly picturesque and not to be missed. We also enjoyed a few evenings in the local village (Civitella del Lago) where we ate delicious pizza with the most amazing view anywhere (especially at sunset). The owners were very responsive and checked in several times to make sure we had everything we needed. We also loved that the pool was maintained during our stay and the garbage was collected. In the US, Umbria is considered a ‘hidden gem’ and I am so glad we found it! I would absolutely recommend this home and this friendly area of Italy to anyone looking for a relaxed and amazing vacation. My only recommendations for improvement: 1) fans in the bedrooms and 2) more water glasses - with 8 people we had to wash often.

Patrice B. - 04/09/2016

Notre séjour dans cette demeure a été à la hauteur de nos attentes voire même plus. La petite ville de Civitella del Lago est adorable. La maison bénéficie d'une vue sur la campagne Ombrienne absolument éblouissante. Tout le confort souhaitable est à disposition dans une maison au charme authentique. Aucun supplément, aucune surtaxe comme on le voit bien souvent en Toscane par exemple. La maison semble habitée et tout simplement prêtée pour quelques jours. Aucun luxe ostentatoire, simplement une magnifique maison qui pourrait être la notre tant il est facile de s'y installer et de s'y sentir bien. Le propriétaire sont aux petits soins et présents pour toute question. Nous y reviendrons. Aucun doute.

Amanda S. - 07/11/2016

My husband and I took a weeks summer holiday with 2 other couples here - it was amazing. It fully excelled our expectations as a country rustic farm house, and the pool was amazing. The views from the kitchen terrace (where we ate breakfast, lunch and dinner) and from the pool house (a 30 second trot up from the house, lock house when you go up there as you don't have sight of the house) were absolutely amazing! Car hire is necessary, to get to the place and to get about to see stuff - which we didn't do a great deal of as we were so content hanging by the pool! The sisters that own/run the house were so lovely, and left us some amazing mozzarella and other kitcheny bits upon our arrival, and were helpful in letting us know about the local area. The kitchen is very well stocked with equipment so it is easy to cook there, and there is a lidl 15minutes drive down the road. Two decent bathrooms, and 3 bedrooms (2 doubles and a twin, we pushed the beds together, but they are different heights). The rooms all had fans in to keep you cool, and plenty of windows to let a breeze through. I have since recommended the house to my family and plenty of friends, and would definitely return there. The views over the valley are amazing!

Nicky F. - 04/07/2018

This farmhouse has heaps of character and one of the loveliest views. The welcome basket of fruit, pasta, wine and breakfast items was a greatly appreciated touch. The pool - also with great views - is perfect for cooling off after busy days of exploring. An authentic Umbrian experience and thank you Daniela for sending my laptop on to Rome.

Maarit H. - 04/07/2018

We had a lovely time and would happily recommend the experience to anyone. The house was charming and very comfortable for 8 people. The garden and grounds around the house are beautiful and we enjoyed reading in the shade, hanging out at the pool and dining outside on the terrace. There is a lot of nature around and it was very peaceful. I especially enjoyed waking up in the morning and listening to the birds in the garden. The house itself very nice and clean, particularly the linens and towels seemed fresh (even new). The owner is very helpful and showed us around the house at check in. She was also very helpful with any questions we had during our stay. The village is conveniently located and has basic services. Though cute, it is not large, so I would recommend visiting the nearby towns for restaurants and grocery shopping. But it's nice to walk up for pizza or gelato. Driving to nearby towns is fairly convenient and Todi and Orvieto are only a 20-30min drive away. All in all it is the perfect Umbrian getaway, we would happily return.

Peter D. - 04/07/2018

ust as promised! Two couples spent the week in Claudio's house. The grounds were lush with spectacular views, just what you might imagine Umbria to be. The house was very comfortable, including the beds, the large bathrooms, the kitchen and the many outdoor spaces. Claudio had left lots of brochures with recommendations for places to visit, shop and eat out at. The countryside is full of quaint towns within one hours' drive. We were usually able to visit one of them and still make it back with plenty of time to read (which usually resulted in a nap) or lounge poolside before making dinner which we would eat outside as the sun went down. We felt like we got a real feel for the relaxed Umbrian way of life. We highly recommend this property.

Penny R. - 02/09/2018

We had a wonderful stay. Claudio and Susan were at the villa to greet us and were easily contactable if we needed any help. The villa was very spacious and the kitchen was very well equipped. Everything was charming inside. The views were lovely, especially from the swimming pool where you could see for miles. There were several areas to eat or sit outside in the shade and enjoy the quiet of the countryside. A very large supermarket was available at Orvieto but there were also nearby towns with smaller food stores. We were sorry to leave this beautiful area.

Rana L. - 02/09/2018

Susan and Claudio were so lovely upon greeting us! They provided anything we needed . We had an amazing stay on this heavenly property and villa. We cooked lovely meals with the local fresh groceries and used the herbs grown on the property. The villa was comfortable! And had everything we needed. And the pool was refreshing with amazing views! We explored surrounding towns and loved upper Orvieto! We dined out locally and drank amazing wines. We would highly recommend this property ! 5 of us stayed in the villa and had lots of space . We will always remember our patio dinners and watching the breathtaking view and the sun going down. We have fond memories of this amazing stay! Rana , Hugh , Lorette , Nathan and Samantha —- Kelowna , Canada
