A nice place to stay if you are visiting Orvietto. The B&B is located is a quite part of town. The owner is very helpful and gladly gave us hints and directions which made the trip more enjoyable.
Breakfast is the typical fare for that part of the world and the quality of it was very good

Stayed: May 2016

Nestled on a back street away from crowds, this place was lovely. Breakfast was wonderful - croissants, yogurt and the room spacious, bathroom very clean and modern. Wifi worked well. Jasmine was a wonderful host. It's an easy walk to all of the sites.

Charming place to stay. La Casa di Tufo is in the old part of Orvieto up on the hill. You can take the Funicular up the hill and then walk the rest of the way. It is a challenging walk if you have luggage. The street is cobbled so luggage does not roll that well. The B&B is also on the far side of the town so you have to walk up hill across town. It is a pretty walk but can be tiring with luggage. You might want to take the bus or a taxi.

The room is nice size and very clean. The bathroom had toiletries provided and a really nice shower. We stayed in room Serancia. The window overlooks the garden and there is a little clothes line with pins outside the window in case you want to hang laundry out. Watch the window, it is made so the whole window can pop out. If you are not watching you could drop & break it. I loved the old brick work in the room. The bed was firm but comfortable. If you have an issue with steps I probably would not stay here. You do have to walk up a few flights to get to the breakfast room and to get to the guest rooms. The room's WiFi worked well.

Get good directions and make sure you take the phone number with you in case you cannot find it (or it doesn't hurt to have a gps). Once you know where it is it is no issue but we found most places a challenge to locate in the old Italian towns. The road signs are normally high on the buildings.

Breakfast was good, the coffee even better. Jasmina has a large world map in the breakfast area showing where everyone who stays with her comes from. Make sure you put your pin in. It is cool to see how far people have come from. Jasmina (the owner) was friendly and full of good advice. She helped us find the post and taught us how to buy bus tickets and find the bus. They don’t really have a bus stop. We kind of just stood in the square and the driver stops for a minute to see if anyone makes eye contact or is heading his way.

We rented a car in Siena and drove through Tuscany to Orvieto. We chose Orvieto because it is a smaller town that we could drop the car rental off, stay the night and then take the train to Rome the next day (I do not recommend driving in Rome). There is plenty to see in Orvieto, it is a lovely old town and a great place to spend a day & night. If you choose La Casa di Tufo you are guaranteed a nice, clean & quite place to relax in a lovely city.

Room Tip: We enjoyed room Serancia

This bed and breakfast is the best of both worlds - fully modernized rooms in a space that retains wonderful features of the medieval building out of which they have been carved. Not one, but two wardrobes to hang my clothes, each with a full-length mirror. The nicest bathroom I have ever been blessed with on any of my B&B travels - great shower, newer modern style sink & medicine cabinet with storage - lots of electrical outlets, comfy bed with lots of pillows and blankets. Breakfast was bread, cheese, cured meats, cereal, yogurt, fruit and cappuccino. The owner, Jasmin, was very welcoming and friendly and she referred me to a wonderful fish restaurant, Cibreo, where I had possibly the best meal of my entire stay in Italy. La Casa di Tufo is a short walk from the Duomo - a little confusing the first time, but perfectly straightforward once you get there. Thank you for everything, Jasmin. If ever I make it back to the beautiful, charming and relatively peaceful town of Orvieto, I will definitely take up residence at the Casa di Tufo.

We had a deluxe accomodation...small apartment on upper floor..2 levels with a large convenient kitchen and bathroom...wooden ceilings..comfortable bed and impeccable taste in furnishing. The hostess Jasmine was gracious and helpful. Breakfast was basic and coffee was good. we actually tried to stay longer but there was no availability..next year we will book ahead and stay longer..we loved it!

Room Tip: all good but there are stairs so if you have problems climbing do not choose upper floor
