Orvieto B&B Review

Jump to last reply

Hi all,

We spent 4 nights in early June 2012 at Casa Selita B&B, just outside the walls of Orvieto.

http://www.casaselita.com/en/home

Our group was comprised of DH and I, our then 19 mo old son, and my parents. We had the two rooms adjacent to one another, located in the same building where breakfast is served. These were the only two rooms in this building, so we had the large sitting area to ourselves most of the time which was fabulous. The owners, some of the nicest people we've ever met!!, allowed us to use the kitchen refrigerator to store milk and snacks for our toddler. The B&B is beautifully decorated and the rooms were very comfortable. The bathrooms were small but not tiny; each had a shower (no tub). The rooms each also had a small private terrace with lovely views over the countryside. The rooms had a powerful ceiling fan but no AC. Wasn't needed in June. There is one parking spot allocated per room. Breakfast was very good and the owners even put out a high chair and children's place setting for our little one, as well as stocked the breakfast area with bananas for him (his fave at that age).

Upon arrival, Selita checked us in and spent a good half hour showing us around the property, marking up a map with restaurants and points of interest, and just chatting. Her husband, Ennio, Is a wine expert and he held a wine tasting for all the interested guests one evening (we requested it, I think it was about 20E pp). This couple truly has the gift of hospitality, and we enjoyed every moment we got to spend talking with them. Alas, no wine tasting for me as I was expecting baby boy #2, but the others said it was great. They sell the olive oil from the property for 10E a bottle and it is excellent. I wish we'd brought back more!

The B&B is located just outside the walls of Orvieto, very close to the elevator that takes you up the cliffs into the town. You can either walk a short, steep uphill trail from the property, or walk along the road for ten minutes. We opted to walk the road since we had a stroller. We loved the location. So close to the town, but without the hassle of in-town parking. We were able to do day trips very easily. You could also drive from the B&B to the fee parking lot that is in front of the elevator if weather didn't permit walking.

Feel free to ask any questions!

Best,
TA
