The space

LA CASA DI TUFO is a unique medieval palazzo that was built in the 5th century where you can experience the atmosphere of the past yet have all the modern comforts of today. Each room has marvelous views of a private garden and of the medieval part of town. There is a radio in every room as well as private bath with massaging showers and foot massage. There are stone arches, original wooden ceilings and other medieval architectural elements as well as TV and exceptional WIFI access in the living room. The breakfast is a mix of Italian (pastry and cappuccino) and continental (bread, cheese, yogurt, granola, and fruit).

The house is in the center of Orvieto within a few minutes walking distance to all the famous sights, including the grand Duomo (cathedral) with its famous frescoes of Signorelli, multiple museums, the underground caves, monuments, Etruscan ruins, the famous well of St. Patrick (Pozzo di San Patrizio) as well as many others. If you like archeological places we can organize a guided tour to some Etruscan cemeteries or to the caves of the famous “Fanum Voltumnae,” the most important spiritual Etruscan place, which was discovered in Orvieto after excavations of more than 50 years.

If you want to relax after a morning of walking you can go to the hot water springs in the surrounding countryside of Orvieto (35 minutes by car). After that we can recommend to you a typical local restaurant where you can eat pasta like your grandmother used to make. We can also book a guided tour to a local Umbrian vineyard for you to enjoy wine tastings.

Within Orvieto’s historic center there are many charming intimate restaurants where you can experience delicious authentic Umbrian cuisine which often includes truffles, porcini mushrooms, fresh vegetables, new olive oil and a terrific selection of wines from Umbria and Tuscany. The owner of LA CASA DI TUFO has a truffle dog and if you want she can show you the dog finding truffles in the woods.

If you completely fall in love with Italy and want to stay for a longer visit, you can also learn Italian cooking at a nearby cooking school.

Gorgeous accomm in the medieval end of town. Jasmina is a lovely, warm host and the town is a must visit! We only stayed one night but could have happily stayed for longer. Ristorante Il Cocco is defintely a lovely place for dinner with amazing service and Tuscan food and wine!

We loved Orvieto and Jasmina's B&B was the perfect place to explore it from. Nice room, good shower and breakfast. Thanks Jasmina for a great couple of days.

Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful, especially as the heat made us quite delirious. We enjoyed communicating in Italian and it was lovely to share our stories about Italy and Australia. The breakfast was also excellent.

We had a really amazing stay at Jasmina's place. I've used airbnb a lot, and am shocked how inexpensive it is to stay in such luxury. The bnb is private, quiet, and filled with light. It is an interior decorator's dream with its fixtures and renovated medieval design. It's ro…
