“Girl Time”
Reviewed 24 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

I found Francesca's apartment in Rick Steves' guide book. I coordinated arrangements via email with Francesca. Upon arrival in Orvieto, my daughter who had been studying abroad in Orvieto, walked to meet my mother and I at the Funacolare (transit that takes you from the train station to the top of the hill), we phoned Francesca and she sent her husband to pick us up from there. I couldn't have been more happy with our stay. The apartment felt very homey, and Francesca provided many options for breakfast, eggs, pastries, yogurt, etc. It was quite hot outside during our stay and the apartment doesn't have a/c; however, it was comfortable. We kept the windows closed during the day while we our out enjoying the town. At night we opened the windows and stayed cool. The apartment is located on a quiet street within walking distance to shops, restaurants, and sites. The first night of our stay there was a small street party just down road from our apartment-there is a small courtyard where a musician, a few local vendors and a food truck were setup. It was a nice gathering and felt like we were part of the community. Francesca also gave us a map of the town and marked points of interests and places to dine. As you walk around town you'll see many pieces of wood carvings incorporated in the decor of the town that were made by Francesca's family. We don't speak Italian, but Francesca knew enough English that we managed. Can't wait to return - will definitely stay again. Grazie, Francesca

“Charming apartment in quiet street”
Reviewed 28 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We had a one night stopover in this lovely apartment. It was very clean and nicely decorated with lots of breakfast provisions. Francesca allowed us to arrive early which was much appreciated. The family has a number of apartments available and also run the timber business that make the interesting carvings you see around the town.

“Without a doubt, one of our best travel experiences!”
Reviewed 14 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We actually found Francesca's apartment in Rick Steves' guide book. We are so happy that we decided on his recommendation. If you ever find yourself in Orvietto, I suggest you dial up her number. The apartment is beautifully decorated, with many homey touches. It is in the town, but very quiet-we felt a part of the community. It is fully equipped for cooking and Francesca supplies more than you would want for breakfast! Sweet rolls, cereals, eggs, sausages, yogurt, tea, coffee, hot chocolate. Amazing! She actually parked our rental car!! The streets are VERY narrow and the garage (we paid slightly extra for parking at the apartment) already had one car. She jumped right in and whipped it into the garage! She called it "Francesca's Taxi". Very helpful on restaurants, markets, where to shop (I was looking for ceramics), and places to see. We speak some Italian and she has some English, so communication was not a problem. Cannot recommend this respite from traveling enough! We will be back!! Thanks, Francesca!

“Best place in Orvieto - great apartment, great proprietor!”
Reviewed 2 June 2015 for a stay in April 2015

My wife and I had the good fortune to meet Francesca M and her family while staying in their lovely apartment. It is close to the center of activity in town but on a quiet street. The apartment is lovingly decorated and well equipped. We ate in as often as we visited the restaurants. If we had questions or needed help on making arrangements (taxis to catch an early train, hair appointments, laundry, etc.) Francesca was quick to answer the e-mails and help us. (Note: Google translator on the iPad is a great, quick way to avoid being misunderstood). Staying at B&B Michelangeli is close to joining the family - great town, great people, fantastic apartment. Train connections are great for visiting Sienna, Asissi, Florence, Rome, etc.

“Best Place in Orvieto”
Reviewed 9 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

We are staying in a lovely apartment in Orvieto. Very quiet, very well furnished, lovely owner – Francesca. The apartment has two bathrooms and two bedrooms. Perfect for three adults (married + single) or two adults and a child/teenager. Owner is very helpful and the apartment is located in the center of town but on a quiet street so the visit was peaceful at night. Francesca can help you with travel arrangements and anything else you might need. Perfect location to get to Rome, Florence, Siena for day trips.
