We'd heard great things about Antica Olivaia, but our recent experience there was even better than we expected. Daniella and Marco were the perfect hosts and their restored farmhouse is beautiful in every respect -- clearly a labor of love on their part. What was particularly nice were the personal touches that Daniella and Marco provided -- wonderful meals (including wild boar -- a special request), and lots of helpful information for places to go -- including some that were off the beaten path but worth every minute we spent there. Perhaps the most satisfying thing of all was the zeal and energy Daniella and Marco put into it. They obviously love what they're doing and it adds a great deal to what was already an outstanding experience.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Agriturismo Antica Olivaia is a charming 17th century stone farmhouse nestled in a protected nature reserve and located near the ancient hill town of Orvieto. This recently restored country inn offers its guests six spacious rooms with en suite bathrooms, a beautiful private pool and breathtaking views of Orvieto and the Umbrian countryside. Conveniently located between three of Italy's most beautiful regions, it is the ideal place from which to discover the extraordinary Umbrian countryside and many towns such as Civita di Bagnoregio, Todi, Perugia, Assisi, Montefalco, Spoleto, Montepulciano, Montalcino, and Pienza. The owners, Marco and Daniela, prepare dinner 3 times a week for their limited number of guests and meals are eaten together family style on the veranda under the stars. Informal cooking lessons can also be organized in the afternoons usually in conjunction with dinners. Marco, Daniela and their furry friends look forward to welcoming you to the Antica Olivaia...A slow farm for a slow life! ... more less
