B&B La Casa di Tufo
Ranked #12 of 54 Orvieto B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 June 2015

I'd read many reviews about where to stay and decided on La Casa di Tufo. It really paid off.

Jasmine, the owner, was away but the couple standing in for her were amazing! Luoli and Bob (Roberto) were incredible hosts. Luoli found out that I was gluten intolerant and got me some special supplies - so thoughtful. After breakfast she even walked us over to a small beautiful church that we had missed and recommended a great walk. It was also so interesting to hear about their life between Orvieto and Rome. Luoli, I loved meeting you and hope to do so again.

Bob, you thought your English wasn't quite good enough but it was, and we loved your sense of humour - we enjoyed having our romantic photo taken. :)

If anyone reading this is concerned about this BnB being on the other side of town, please don't be. We found this to be the nicest part as it is very old and walking here is stunning and a bit quieter. Transport is fine - we caught a taxi after the funicular as we didn't want to walk with our bags on such a hot day. The taxi was quick and reasonable but Jasmine also provided alternative options and this would have been fine as the town is actually very walkable.

We really regretted only booking the one night. After big cities, Orvieto was a great respite and it has been our favourite place in Italy. Don't miss walking down the incredible well near the funicular. This town has some real gems and this BnB is one of the.

Jasmine, the owner of La Casa di Tufo was excellent and very welcoming. She was so helpful and friendly with restaurants, sights, transport etc. We drove there from Greve in Chianti and had a bit of trouble manoeuvring the car up the narrow streets. Our GPS was very helpful. Jasmine drove with us to the parking lot which was an extra charge (very minimum and well worth it.) It was a struggle getting the bags up the stairs but that's a big part of Italy. The B&B is in an excellent part of the old town, easy walking to everything. Our room was very big with a well equipped kitchen, big bathroom and a cute loft if you had children. My husband and I were travelling with My sister, husband and their grown up daughter. They were very happy with their room also. Breakfast was basic but certainly enough for us. We spent 4 nights there and enjoyed every minute of it. The B&B was very old Italian. Loved it. Excellent Wi-Fi also. Jasmine kept in touch with me before our trip and sent us a little map to help with the driving. Thank you Jasmine.(your English was excellent)

Room Tip: Be prepared for the narrow streets which are also walk-ways. Stairs to carry your luggage up.

Jasmine was a great hostess.She made us comfortable from our initial meeting. She graciously allowed us to use the common area for an impromptu lunch. She also let us use the small washer in the kitchen to wash our clothes. Her recommendation for dinner turned into a wonderful experience featuring local cuisine. The location of this B&B was excellent for exploring the wonderful hill town of Orvieto. The stairs to the rooms were a bit of a challenge for me because I use a cane. But that would not deter me from staying here again, The entire experience was a pleasure. Note: We took a taxi from the Orvieto train station. The only way to go.

Room Tip: All of the rooms were nice. Choose the rooms on the maim floor if anyone has a problem with stairs.

First stop from Rome airport in my trip to Tuscany I had a quadruple room that was confortable and spacious . With my heavy luggage It was a bit unconfortable to the 3 small levels until the room. The owner was very nice and polite with us . Arriving by car was not so easy since the street in front of the building is really narrow and the parking place not so close. Good breakfast and silent sleep with an easy walk to the center of this charming place
