We found Misia a wonderfully run villa hotel nestled in the shadow of a large volcanic tufa rock (Rocca Ripesena). Stone steps and a path lead to a garden on top of the rock with panoramic views of Orvieto and the surrounding countryside. While the outside of Misia looks delightfully rustic, the rooms have all the modern amenities - air-conditioning and heat, new fixtures in the bathroom and well designed windows that open either from the top or the side. The charming hosts – Giorgio and the beautify Alexandra were very helpful and made dinner reservations for us at the nearby agroturismo restaurant and helped us plan our visit to Orvieto. If you are driving in from Rome follow the directions explicitly. We didn’t, relying on an iPhone and Google maps and found ourselves “temporarily mislaid”. This was not a huge problem as we discovered a winery and a rough back road route to the Rocca! Misia is just a few kilometres from the parking lot for the stairs/escalator to the old city of Orvieto. It is also conveniently close Bagnoregio, Lake Bolsena and the back road to the coast via Pitgliano.
