Found this agriturismo through Michelin which is unusual as Michelin lists very few agriturismos. Very glad they did in this case.
Outstanding view of the country side, particularly from the pool & other outdoor areas. Has many facilities not offered by many agriturismos such as a bucci ball area & very well equipped gym.
Take the half board option as it is a great value and the food is wonderful. Rooms are very nice & well decorated. We stayed in one of their out buildings which is new, but the interiors are charming. They have also included nice touches such as mohair blankets in the rooms which came in handly as when we stayed there it was a little chilly & we used them while reading around the pool. It is those touches that make it a superior agriturismo.
The location was good & about a 20 minute drive up in the hills from the interesting town of Orvieto.
The Filippi family are very hospitable, although be prepared for very little english being spoken. I do not consider it a problem if you know at least a little of Italian for the traveler.
