About the neighbourhood
An oak shaded rural lane leads to our house with the Hobbit House below. Enjoy wonderful walks through panoramic hills, visit the historic village of Civitella del Lago on the hilltop, Etruscan dig nearby, and the Ovo Pinto artistic egg museum.

A bus leaves Civitella daily at 6am to the Orvieto train station, and returns at 2pm. However, if you walk up the hill to the village, you can shop for groceries , enjoy a drink and snack in one of the 2 cafes, or have a pizza. There's also a bakery, a pharmacy,a flower & household product shop, and a gas station. Villagers are friendly and hospitable bu...
