It has been one of the best place we visited in Italy,we just feltl like writing something about this gorgeous place,immersed in the country side of Umbria.My and my wife really appriciated the wormth of the family owner,we felt like beeing part of them,they gave us the chance to ride their Horses with the help of Giulio, their son . Language was no problem.The room was large and comfortable ,We had many dinner there which were delicious.For the first time in life i had Tagliatelle con Cinghiale ,so good!!!It was also very easy to reach the main town such as Orvieto with his beautiful Duomo, hope to go there again soon, We add our names to the long list of very satisfied guests!

My family and I had a wonderful stay at L'Elmo in Umbria, Italy. We were there for one night and never wanted to leave!!!!!! This is a fantastic place to get away form all the hustle and bustle of the City and really enjoy how beautiful the country side of Italy is.
Besides the beauty of the hotel's surroundings they have wonderful service, clean cozy rooms, a nice restaurant with a complimentary breakfast, and many activities such as swimming and horseback riding.
After leaving we traveled on to Pompeii and we wish we would have stayed longer in Umbria. Compared to the congestion of a large city where people treat you like stupid tourists, and try to scam you. The L'Elmo hotel was very peaceful and we were treated as people. I recommend you take the time to stop and stay at this wonderful farm house in the mist of all your travels for some relaxation and i hope this review helps you in your decision.

Stayed January 2006

I read the previous review, and if true, the owners have learned their lesson. The dogs were put up every night, and we slept very well. We were put in an outbuilding which was converted to rooms. The rooms were very comfortable and nicely decorated. The main house was built around 1773.

The food that they served was excellent, and the owners were very friendly. Although we didn't go swimming, the pool looked very nice too.

The previous reviewer's complaint about the agriturismo being too far out of Orvieto is unfounded, in my opinion. First, I would think you would expect a farm or vineyard to be out of town. The drive to Orvieto probably took about 15 minutes, so it was not a problem at all.

I recommend L'Elmo.

During our 3 week Tour of Italy we had planned to stay one week at this Agriturismo. We left after 4 nights.

The Farm is not of a high standard, it is OK but verging on the shabby side. The key problem however was the 4 dogs they owned, which at night were allowed to roam freely as Guard Dogs. As the farm is right next to a road, the dogs howled furiously anytime a vehicle passed. We complained following the second night of no sleep. They said they would lock them away that night, which they did and we all slept well. The fourth night however they let them out again. After being awakened at midnight and still being awake at 5 a.m. we called it a day the next morning. What surprised us was that the owners were surpised we left (and expected the full seven nights payment!).

What was good about it? A pretty relaxed location, a great swimming pool, and pretty good rustic cooking in the evenings.

What was not so good? It was advertised as being near Orvieto. Thats a matter for conjecture. IT is probably around 10 kilometres away, up a ridiculously twisting road. You had to consider whether it was worth going out at night (Orvieto being the only placeyou would be likley to go to, as there isnt really anything else in miles) as the chore of driving back really took the edge of it. Also, whilst the swimming pool was great, being a farm means that you were liable to being buzzed by flies whilst you were near the pool.
