Our home

La Carraia enjoys a beautiful location in the Umbrian countryside, situated between olive groves, vineyards and cypress trees with views towards the Appennines mountains and lake Corbara. Although the house is attached to another property, it is approached via its own private drive. La Carraia is itself divided into two with the owner, who lives in Rome, retaining a small apartment for his own very occasional use. The spacious living accommodations with large windows and French doors leads on to a covered terrace overlooking the garden. Doors from the kitchen lead to a further patio area. A converted stable next to the swimming pool is equipped with table tennis and barbecue oven and creates a shady corner for lunch or dinner. A new kitchen and refurbished bathrooms have been completed for 2001.

La Carraia is still active as a farm, producing excellent olive oil and wine which guests are able to purchase. The two storey house is approached by a well maintained unmade road about 1 kilometre from the asphalt road.

Maximum – 7 persons. Solar heated swimming pool (4.5 x 9.5 metres). Ground floor – kitchen, living room, dining room, shower/wc. First floor – 1 double bedroom with en suite shower/wc, 2 twin bedrooms, 1 single bedroom (a second bed can be added at an additional charge), bathroom/wc. There is a washing machine, dishwasher and telephone. A baby cot can be provided. Maid service weekly. Full time gardener.

Who we are

  1. We are 3 adults and 3 lovely girls (14, 11, 11), looking for a sunny place in California to relax and study English.
    Our desire would be to find a nearby International School for summer courses.
    It is our second home exchange experience with the same formula and it was really exciting.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Approximately 3 km away from La Carraia stands the village of Porano, which offers the possibility to shop and for horses lovers there’s a manège.

For those who like to relax there's a spa in Viterbo, le Terme dei Papi, open the all year round, with its warm thermal water swimming pool at a 30 minutes ride. 20 km away from Viterbo there's Sutri with his golf club “Le Querce” one of the most beautiful greens of Italy in Sutri.

Thanks to its strategic position Orvieto is the ideal waypoint for reaching in a short time many interesting art cities such as Rome, Florence, Perugia and all those typical Tuscan/Umbrian villages such as Arezzo, Cortona, Siena, Città della Pieve, Gubbio, Todi and many more…

Furthermore two beautiful and famous lakes are near by La Carraia: lake Corbara and lake Bolsena are only 15 minutes away.

We do strongly recommend to visit the village of Civita di Bagnoregio, it's only 10 minutes away from the manor and it really worth the visit: its beauty is breathtaking!

Just 10 minutes from Orvieto junction of the autostrada, La Carraia is served by shopping facilities in Porano and Canale as well as a large supermarket in Orvieto Scalo. The house is ideally situated for excursions including Lake Bolsena where are many good fish restaurants.
