A land of thousand-year-old traditions and varied landscapes, from the gentle rolling hills that dive into the embrace of alluvial plains to the majestic volcanic formations superbly symbolized by the magnificent cliff of Orvieto. Here, set among decades-old olive trees, rich vineyards, verdant woods, and sunny fields, lies an exquisite historic home boasting four hundred years of history: Antichi Casali di Charme. The estate, which occupies about 78 hectares, is located just three kilometers away from the center of Orvieto and is, therefore, the perfect location for exploring this lovely city and the innumerable beauties of its surroundings while experiencing the memorable and unique experience of an exclusive stay in a place full of charm and magic. The Casali, an integral part of the estate owned by the Ciaffardini Family, is composed of four structures entirely built of stone and recently renovated, furnished using warm colors and natural materials, surrounded by green gardens and rolling hills, within which dreamy tourists will begin their journey across nature, food, and art from the top of a hill overlooking the beauty of the entire area. Guests can choose from four apartments and two suites featuring a rustic yet refined atmosphere, with pastel colors that make the rooms comfortable and relaxing. To make it all more precious, there is a romantic infinity pool with salt water, ideal for enjoying a good glass of wine while admiring the spectacular sunsets and great starry skies. All around are the rich olive groves where no less than seven varieties of olives grow and the great vines that cover 16 hectares. The love for the land of the Ciaffardini family stems the vegetable garden, which, thanks to its favorable location with plenty of breezes and light, yields all those genuine and healthy products that characterize the delicacies offered by the facility to its guests. Starting with breakfast, featuring warm bread, cream-filled krapfen, cream-filled maritozzi, pan brioche, cookies, ricotta pie from the Marceddu farm, jams, custard, local honey, hazelnut cream, organic juices, organic extracts, a selection of herbal teas, organic teas, and coffee. A la carte eggs, organic and homemade, selection of cheeses, local cured meats, and toasted bread with different types of toppings. Upon request, it is also possible to enjoy these delicacies served in the gardens or terraces of the rooms while enjoying the unparalleled view of Orvieto's fortress. Also, upon reservation, guests can enjoy lunch and dinner from two different menu options: classic or vegetarian. Both are prepared by chef Federica Ciaffardini and are made exclusively with local products and vegetables from the organic garden. Guests can rent electric bikes to take suggestive rides in the vineyard or among the olive trees, riding along paths offering incredible scenery and cool streams. And yet, guests can enjoy body treatments performed by trained professionals and custom massages in their rooms or outdoors while enjoying beautiful views and sights that will remain forever engraved in their hearts' memories.
