2 - 12岁


A century-old oak tree stands sentinel at the entrance of this property, located at the meeting place of Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio. It is owned and directly rented by a couple – American wife and Italian husband - who fell in love with its strategic location and its terraced, tree-shaded grounds.
The Property: The house is set in a 2 acre terrain populated by a variety of trees: olives, cypresses, oaks, pines, hazelnuts, apricots, cherries and apples. The terrace in front of the house has a wisteria-covered pergola equipped for elegant rustic dinning, bordered by a riotous garden of roses, lavender and hydrangeas. A path winds down to the pool, surrounded by a terracotta pavement, which looks out over the Tiber Valley to the mountains and hill towns on the other side.
The Interior: The house has been restored with careful attention to both tradition and modern comfort. The interior was completely refurbished in 2012. The ceilings have original wooden beams and the floors are paved with terracotta tiles. The living space is composed of two apartments that are united when the entire house is rented. The smaller ground floor unit sleeps two in a double bedroom. It also includes a living/dining room with a fireplace and a sofa bed sleeping two, a kitchen and a bathroom with shower. The main unit has a large ground floor country kitchen-dinning-living room with a fireplace, and a separate area where the refrigerator and washing machine are located. A broad stone staircase leads up to the second floor with two double bedrooms (each sleeping two), a study with a sofa bed sleeping two and a bathroom with a bathtube. The thick stone walls keep the heat out during the summer. All the bedrooms have screens and fans. The house is equipped with central heating for the winter months. The furniture is tasteful and the kitchens are fully equipped.

- UP to 8/(9) pers: Euro 1,250/Week

Other amenities: The house contains a well-equipped library of guidebooks, maps and novels, games, a LED full HD television and a HiFi + HomeTheater System with a collection of CDs and DVDs. Renato and Nora are on call to help you plan your visit and make local contacts. They have drawn up their own lists of sights, eating places, contacts. The property is a paradise for families with children, with lots of space for them to play safely. It features a host of different nooks where you can retire to read a book, sip a coffee or a glass of wine, or just relax. Commuter trains from Orvieto station make carefree day trips to cities like Rome or Florence, where you don’t need or want a car, a good option.
Seasons: This is an all-year round holiday house. In Summer the days are long and golden, but spring and fall are also beautiful. They allow you to witness nature's rebirth, the harvesting of its fruits, and the traditions that accompany them. In Winter the warm house and blazing fireplaces are a pleasure, and the holiday season brings religious celebrations, music festivals and feasts.

We had a great day and thoroughly enjoyed the villa. It could have not been better for the use of our two families. We've never spent so much time in a pool in one week! The location is within a convenient drive from Rome and all necessary services can be found within 10min drive from the villa. You might not want to choose a sports car as a rental because the last km is a bit rough. Here you will have privacy and nature at hand and you will return home reborn. The villa is well equipped with everything you would need and Renato was very helpfull in arranging extras for our special needs.

We were a quite large group of ten (9 adults and one child, thanks to Renatos flexibility) staying in Renatos lovely old stone house in june 2017. We really enjoyed the house, the pool, the calm and the beautiful view. It is in the countryside and you definitely need a car to get around. But with a car its close to so many wonderful places to discover, like Civita della Bagnoregio and Lake Bolsena. Its also easy to take the train from nearby station Alviano to Rome. Some days we went on different daytrips, other days we just relaxed by the pool. Almost every night we gathered at the house, made italian dishes and ate outside under the pergola. We really hope to come back some day to discover more of Italy. We havent had enough! :-)

We (5 adults and 3 children) spent ten lovely days at the Old Oak House. Before our trip Renato sent us a detailed description how to get to the house and it was easy, with the help of the instructions, to drive there from Rome, Fiumicino airport. Renato was at the house meeting us upon our arrival, welcomed us warmly and introduced us to the house and the amenities of the house. The house is spacious, comfortable, clean and it has two very well equipped kitchens. The pool area is great with a wonderful view and we spent many hours at the pool, just relaxing and swimming. Renato was a great, very friendly and thoughtful host and he provided us with all necessary information about the neighbouring areas, where to go shopping and where to get local products. He really took good care of us :) The house is located in peaceful and quiet countryside, but still it is close to many nice places, small towns and from Orvieto you can easily take the train to Rome for a day trip.

Amazing house. The area is beatiful and the house is outstanding. Renato was an amazing host and made a lot of suggestions what to visit during our stay. The pool is WOW - and the kids loved it :) I can highly commend it :)

We had an amazing 6 days at the Old Oak Villa near Orvieto in July 2015! Renato welcomed us warmly, explained the ins and outs of the house and even provided us with necessary staples and some treats! Our party of 8 felt very comfortable at the house, with the children taking over the lower apartment and the adults in the grand rooms upstairs. We made great use of the gorgeous pool due to the extreme temperatures (37 oC most days) and enjoyed walking around the property and nearby vineyards. The kids enjoyed downtime watching the many DVDs available. Shopping at nearby Castiglione in Teverina was easy as were our day trips to Orvieto, St. Gemini and Baschi. All in all a wonderful holiday in Lazio/ Umbria!

We loved being at the house, and especially outside - lovely terrace for the early morning sun, shady space for eating and a wonderfully sunny and private pool. Good side terrace facing east - great for early morning yoga or meditation. Plenty of space for 6 of us, well equipped and a very nice welcome from Renato. It's quite isolated, which was great for us, and we also enjoyed excursions into Orvieto (fascinating underground city as well as the old and attractive city above ground), Rome and also Todi - about an hour's drive to a beautiful mediaeval hilltop town. Very adequate shops in the nearest town (a short drive away).

The old oak house is great! We were four adults and one child aged six who rented both units and spent one week there. We were fortunate to have wonderfully nice weather and even though we had plans to make daytrips to Sienna and Perugia we ended up spending most our time relaxing and enjoying the beautiful house and garden with views over the olive trees, green fields and grape canes, with the sounds of bird singing and sheeps in the distance. We drove from Rome and with Renatos perfectly detailed driving directions it was an easy access. Renato was kindness himself and he offered to buy us some groceries to get started with. He is based in Rome but met us at the house to show us around. He also made sure that we would not hesitate to ask if we had questions about anything and would gladly help with tips to plan our trip as we were not familiar with the area. The beds were comfortable and provided with towels. The very functional kitchen also had basics like spices, oils, tea, coffee, dish soap and more. The house was nice and clean and comfortable with every facility that was needed, but if we were to stay longer I guess we would need a vacuum cleaner. Thank you Renato. We would love to stay there again!
