“Amazing Place”
Reviewed 11 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The cottage is charming with fantastic amenities, outdoor space and incredible views. We rented cars to explore the area and there are several towns and attractions to visit in the vicinity. Although with the amazing views and with the town a short walk away there is limited need to leave the area. The restaurants in the town are lovely and the gelato perfect and all within a 10 minute walk. We ventured to a nearby lake also where you can rent boats during the summer which was a lovely day out. The hosts are lovely and would be able to help you plan your visit to get the maximum out of your stay in this fantastic Italian retreat.

“Could not be nicer!”

Surrounded by antique urns and lovely furnishings, this cottage is totally special. The lovely terrace with views for miles is a wonderful place to sit for breakfast and for wine in the evening. Our hosts - Elizabetta & her husband - were gracious, helpful & generous with their hospitality. I sang with Marcello (their long-time friend) and ate grapes from the arbor. We bought fruit and vegetables at the little market in Town and went to the Coop for our groceries and wine! We usually had a wonderful lunch out in whatever town we were visiting and then something light at 'home'. We truly loved this cottage.
Soriano is a happening little town but not full of tourists, mostly locals. A short drive from the cottage. Each day we drove to another lovely hill town. One day we went to Bagnaia to see the Villa Lante - a real highlight - a 1567 water garden. Montefalco was also lovely and we had a delicious lunch there at Locanda del Teatro in the Piazza Del Comune - Pasta with truffles! We should have made arrangements to tour a winery in that area but did not plan far enough in advance. However we were able to taste & purchase the wines of 2 wineries in shops in the Town.
We had a delicious lunch in Orvieto under the awning at the Ristorante Antico Bucchero. Both truffles and Porcini mushrooms were in season!
On our way to our next stay in Firenze, we stopped in Montepulciano and had a delicious lunch at Ristorante Al Quattro Venti in the Piazza Grande way up in town - the best lasagna!
We drove thru Umbria which is totally untouristy. Stopped in the Moscatelli Tartufi in Norcia for some fabulous sausages and prociutto and dried truffle pasta to take home.

We did rent a GPS for the car and could not have lived without it. Getting around the towns can be tricky and confusing.

Arrevederci!

“Fantastic stay in a unique setting”
Reviewed 11 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We spent a wonderful 7 days in this lovely cottage. The views across the valley from the terrace are amazing - it's easy to do nothing but soak it all up. We had a number of lovely meals at Ai Tre Scalini in Soriana and at L' Osteria del Viccolo in nearby Viterbo. Elisabetta is a lovely and generous host - we had everything we could want to make our stay memorable. Highly recommended - we hope to come again.

“Ideal place to relax and keep cool in the heat of the summer”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I stayed in the little cottage in August and I couldn’t have chosen a better place to stay if I wanted to! The weather was ideal throughout, I expected it would be too hot in the heat of the summer but I was pleasantly surprised. It was perfect, warm and sunny but also fresh and cool in the shade. I spent many days reading and relaxing on the porch of the little cottage and marvelling at the breathtaking view, overlooking the little villages of Lazio. We went on a day trip to Bomarzo, home of the famous Parco di Mostri, a park with hidden statues in the shapes of gnomes and monsters. Rome is also only an hour and a half away so we had the chance to look at the galleries and famous architecture of the capital too! During our stay we visited Rome twice as it’s really easy and cheap to get to. All in all, Soriano is the best of both worlds, you can relax and enjoy the calm of the country life but can also hop on the train and be in the heart of the cultural capital easily. The host, Elisabetta, was always smiley and welcoming and helped us with everything during our stay, she recommended us restaurants to visit and sights to see. We would like to thank her for everything and can’t wait to see her again next year!!

“Beautiful house and location”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed in this delightful house in the heat of August, yet its location up in the hills was cool and comfortable. Our hosts were so friendly and welcoming, and made us feel really at home. We visited extraordinary places, such as the Etruscan tombs at Tarquinia and Cerveteri, the peaceful Lake Vico, the beautiful woods on Mount Cimino and many more. It was always lovely to come back to the terrace with its stunning views for a glass of wine and supper. Many thanks for a wonderful stay.

if you are going to italy to be a part of italy this is the place for you. beautiful doesn't even describe it. it is more than sufficient for two. three would be tough and i wouldn't want to share the space with another. if you are only going for a short stay, town center is very close with good places to eat. Tre Scalini (ask for the pork dish not on the menu) or go to Due Cimini and have a shot of limoncello with Gigi. For a long stay then go to the market and cook for yourself. sit out on the patio and melt with the views. You will be welcomed and cared for. definitely a treasure. we will return!

“A wonderful stay with fantastic views.”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This is an unusual property with lots of character. The views from the terrace are amazing and change in mood according to the weather and time of day. It was easy to find and is located just on the edge of the lovely old town of Soriano. We could walk downhill from the property into the town in around ten to fifteen minutes and find a variety of good eating options. Our favourite was Ai Tre Scalini. Not having to drive meant we could partake of the local wines, a great bonus. The owners were so welcoming and friendly, providing extra bedding when the weather was cold and advising us on restaurants etc. We relaxed immediately. They also gave us good guidance on how to organise and make the most of our day trips into Rome . Travel to Rome was easy, a half hour drive to the station and then a 40 minute train ride. You can purchase a return ticket called a' Birg' which also allows you on and off buses and the underground once in Rome. We would advise a trip to Baita La Faggeta, a restaurant situated in the middle of a forest about fifteen minutes drive away.We also went to the medieval town Civita di Bagnoregio which we visited in the pouring rain and it was still beautiful. Don't make the mistake we made and eat in a mediocre trattoria outside the town. There are some beautiful looking places to eat in Bagnoregio, one which had a real fire blazing, very tempting to have a second meal given that we were soaking wet. Also visit the monster gardens at Bomarzo.
All in all, this charming studio cottage was a great place to stay and explore the lovely region of Lazio and Rome itself without having to stay in the madness of Rome. We thoroughly recommend it.
