“Perfect for Families”
Reviewed 17 June 2013

After the hustle of Venice, we enjoyed three nights in the scenic town of Orvieto. We loved the bed and breakfast and the quad room is perfect for families. My children appreciated having their own bedroom in the loft with separate twin beds. The unit was clean, large and the breakfast great.

We only stayed for one night, wish we could have stayed longer. Orvieto is a beautiful town, and La Casa di Tufo was a great place to stay. It's located in a narrow, quite street, close to all the shops, restaurants and attractions in town.
The home has been remodeled, is very clean and pleasant. Jasmin, the owner, is very nice and accommodating, and immediately makes you feel at home.
We had a very large room on the 3rd floor for our family of four. Nice furnishings, and lots of closet spaces. The only disappointing factor was that our teenagers had to share a bed, it would have been nice to have the choice of 2 twin beds. The bathroom was large, nice shower. Be sure to bring your own toiletries. The lack of an elevator may be a factor for some people, but the stairs were not a problem for us.
Jasmin prepared a very nice breakfast and delicious coffee. She also recommended restaurants, and looked for answers to all of our questions. We had a wonderful, very pleasant stay. Orvieto was our favorite location in all of Italy !
P.S. Try the Porchetta from La Bottega Del Norcino on Corso Camillo Benso, down the hill past the pharmacy - delicious !

We arrived in Orvieto without a reservation. Not unusual for us. We knew there was a tourist office in the town square across from the Cathedral which turned out to be closed for lunch. When opened, the B&B we had in mind was not available so she suggested a recently opened B&B which was La Casa di Tufo. What a wonderful surprise! It is a long walk from the Cathedral as mentioned in other reviews but the bus service solves that problem (when you learn about it). Do be sure to stay in the city itself for that is when you see the locals out for their evening stroll and get a real sense of the city. The B&B is fresh and nicely furnished with a very solicitous owner and son. They serve a mean breakfast. When we left, she brought her car up to the B&B and delivered us and our luggage to the train station. Now that is service!

This place is very nice and rooms are very well appointed. We were reserved to stay in the smallest room but there was an opening to stay in the much larger family sized room and we were given that room with no extra charge. The room was huge by Europe standards and even had a peekaboo view of the countryside outside of the walls. The bathroom was huge and had a spa-like shower that took a little time to get used to. Breakfast is served every morning by the property manager and consists of coffee, pastries, fruit and fresh cheeses and meats. Fantastic way to start your day. When you arrive in Orvieto, via the funiculare from the train station, make sure you use Bus B that will take you to the other side of the city. The B&B is on the far side of the city and would take 30+ minutes to walk. I wish we would've stayed longer.

Clean, affordable, well maintained rooms and guest area close to Orvieto attractions. This is located on the far side of town, so please take a bus there from the train station. There is a funiculare near the train station, but if you have bags to carry, the B&B is all the way on the other side of town, about one-half mile to a mile away.

The owner was accomodative and served a very nice breakfast with croissants, rolls, cheese, juice, coffee & espresso,as well as fruit. The rooms are large and the shower in our bathroom was something to see! An engineer's dream with more controls than you can imagine.

Orvieto itself is a fascinating Umbrian town, with caves, cathedrals and massive walls built atop the tufa cliffs. One of the best medieval towns we have visited. We prefer it to Sienna.

I stayed at this B&B with my husband, and my parents stayed in another room. It is such a lovely building, within walking distance of all of the sites. The manager of the property is very nice and helpful, accommodating and warm. Parking can be a bit of a hassle during the week but you can drop your things off in front of the hotel and park the car after. Staying inside the walls is an excellent idea - and this B&B is comfortable, clean, and lovely inside.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have exposed brick and wood-beamed ceilings, which are gorgeous.

This B&B was amazing. New blended with old, clean, great suite, beautiful kitchen, walking distance to everything. The owner and her family were very helpful. We will stay there again next time we're in Orvieto and would reccommend it highly to others.
