Overview

This top quality townhouse in Umbria is a dream — life in an adorable Italian village with all the modern amenities, yet full of old world charm — with beamed ceilings, beautiful antiques, and terra cotta terrace with a breathtaking panorama over the hills and valley. The house is located at the very edge of the town, which allows it such fabulous views of the countryside.

Casa Carina is close to the train line in Fabro (5 minutes away, local train) or in Orvieto, where you can park free and take the express train to Rome (45 minutes). The village is centrally located, and many day trips are possible, including Todi, Spoleto, Perugia, Siena, Montepulciano, Montalcino, San Casciano dei Bagni and Cortona. Florence will take longer but is also doable.

Cozy and loveable, yet elegant and sophisticated, Casa Carina is cleverly designed to take maximum advantage of space. Beautifully furnished with antiques, American mattresses, Ginori china, beautiful linens, and travertine counter tops in the kitchen, the house has all of the modern amenities. All three bathrooms have showers (no tubs).

Step out the door and you are right in a village with friendly Italian residents as well as a grocery shop, fruit and vegetable shop, coffee bars, a couple of restaurants and other services.

For those guests renting a car, there is also a free parking lot that is a 2-3 minute walk downhill. Because the town market is held on the first Sunday of the month, cars must be moved to another parking lot nearby on Saturday night and can be returned on Sunday afternoon.

Although technically there is sleeping space for up to eight guests, Casa Carina is really ideal for one or two couples, with the occasional visitor.

    Hi Kit,
    We are back safe and sound, still with the rolling hillsides in our minds' eye. Thanks for all your arrangements. Everything went quite smoothly.

    The little village of Ficulle is such a lovely surprise and happily the kind villagers were able to understand my Italian, mixed tenses and all! It was wonderful to have everything we needed so close to home! Michael fell in love with the Tenuta Vitalonga Vineyard, and so we enjoyed lunch there twice, and some wine is on the way to Philadelphia.

    Fortunately the weather cleared up the last two days so we could sit out on the terrace — what an amazing view!

    We were surprised by how crowded it was in both Siena and Florence, but fortunately we had an excellent guide in both places. She was recommended by a friend, and I will send you her card.

    I even enjoyed cooking because the kitchen is so pretty

    Thanks again for all of your advice and suggestions and your help in making our plans. I really could not have done the trip without you and I will happily recommend you to anyone who is even thinking about a trip!

    Best wishes,
    EH

  • Bedroom with French bed (larger than a twin, smaller than a double)
  • En-suite bathroom with shower. You can stand upright in the room and around the bed and in the shower, but to use the sink you have to be short or very careful

Because of the open stairs and elegance of the furnishings, this property is not appropriate for young children or very elderly adults.

Guests staying on the third floor should not be tall because of the eaves on the third floor.

Although technically there is sleeping space for up to eight guests, Casa Carina is really ideal for one or two couples, with the occasional visitor.
