Holiday home with 3 apartments, set in the middle of the famous vineyards of Orvieto, in Umbria. Excellent position with breathtaking views over Lake Corbara, 10 km from the entrance to the A1, 13 km from Orvieto and 16 from Todi.
"We find it one of the most beautiful locations in Umbria! The position of the house is excellent, the view over the Corbara lake is magnificent. This is holiday!"
Il Belvedere holiday home has one 3 bedroom apartment, one 2 bedroom apartment and a one bedroom apartment. Each apartment has private outdoor sitting and they share one pool in a panoramic position, at the side of the holiday home.
The pool is situated at the side of the holiday home, with a flat grass area and terrace around it. There are sun beds and parasols. The pool is 6 by 12 meters and from 0.90 m to 1.20 meter deep. The views over Lake Corbara are really unique.
Holiday home Il Belvedere is situated 13 km from the centre of Orvieto. Todi is 16 km. Parking your car at the station of Orvieto, you can take a train to the centre of Rome (takes about one hour). Civitella del Lago is a nice town on 5 km from the holiday home, where guests can do some basic shopping. Supermarkets for bigger shopping are close to Orvieto. There is one restaurant on walking distance (one can see the restaurant from the garden), on the shores of Lake Corbara (by the way: swimming is not allowed in the lake). Other restaurants are on 3 and 5 km from the holiday home.
Holiday home Il Belvedere is situated in the middle of the vineyards of the owners. The owners do not live here, but come every day to make sure all is well, to feed the cats (there are two very friendly and well kept cats) and occasionally they have to do some maintenance to the vineyards. However, your privacy is assured even in those rare occasions. The area of Orvieto is world famous for the excellent wines. The white wine made Orvieto famous, but the red wine of this area is excellent as well. The holiday home is situated within the 'parco fluviale del tevere' (the tiber river natural park). One can take a few nice walks from here.
The holiday home Il Belvedere has three apartments. Rosso, Bianco and Rosato (Red, White and Rose). The names refer to the three types of wine. There is wifi internet.

Hello Saskia and Sylvia,
Two consecutive Summer seasons we went to Il Belvedere. We find it one of the most beautiful locations in Umbria! The position of the house is excellent, the view over the Corbara lake is magnificent. This is holiday! We couldn’t find a restaurant with this view in the neighborhood (economic and good), therefor we decided to cook every evening at home. We were the only one at the house, which we didn’t mind at all! The surroundings offer many good possibilities. We surely will come back because we didn’t see everything yet. Mariolina is very hospitable and helpful. She is kind, we could speek to each other in Italian. We had the largest apartment. We were pleasantly surprised with the sunroofs for shade. Mariolina always listens very well to suggestions of guests, like the ants who were everywhere in the house this year. She solved the problem immediately. She finds it important that guests are having a good time. Together with Marta they are the most wonderful Italian women we know. We gave her a list from things we missed in the kitchen. She appreciated it. The apartment itself is ideal for a family with five persons, three large bedrooms, two bathrooms with toilet. Really luxury. We missed some sofa to relax. There is one sofa in the living room, but that one was always occupied! Anyhow we enjoyed our holiday. We’ve spent three evenings together with the neighbors and Mariolina. Thanks to Mariolina we could watch the game Belgium - USA. And during that evening Marta cooked for us a delicious meal. When Belgium played against Argentina we invited everybody to come to watch the game. We cooked, we had a lovely time. We’ve made some friends during our stay. We surely will come back.

Remarks from Villa in Umbria: the owner made covered terraces for the apartments and the entrance road, which is steep, is now completely tarred.
Dear Saskia and Sylvia,
We had a wonderful holiday at Il Belvedere and much enjoyed exploring that part of Umbria. We know Toscana well and had stayed in Assisi but this was our first proper visiti to Umbria.
The apartment was delightful and more spacious (especially the bedroom) than we expected and well-equipped and we were lucky enough to be the only guests staying - if all three apartments were occupied it might feel quite crowded. As is was we had complete peace (apart from the grape harvest for the first three days, which we were pleased to experience) and stunning sunsets. Mariolina is very kind and welcoming, and with her little English and our little Italian we were able to communicate quite well. She was also very happy for our daughter who live in Rome, to come and spend a day at il Belvedere.
It would be helpful to have copies in the apartment of the information on you web-site about local facilities and staying in Italy; not everyone travels with a smart phone or an Ipad. We know Italy well but for people staying for the first time there is no information to hand an you are quite a long way from anywhere!
Thank you for organizing a most enjoyable holiday.
Best wishes, Caroline
We enjoyed our apartment and had a wonderful time. The owners is very friendly. Every morning she passes by to water the plants and to clean the pool. We have no remarks as to what she could improve, it was all perfect.
Best regards, Niek-Willem
The apartment was excellent, all we needed was present. The position was nice to visit Umbria and lovely views. We can only remark that we could hear the neighbors.
Best wishes, Ineke and Peter.
we have enjoyed our trip.The location is indeed extremely beautiful with views over the lake. We received a very friendly reception by the owner, with welcome pack. Nice that the pool is cleaned daily. Small remarks: there was not a lot of shade (umbrella's are not very good because of the wind, a wooden structure would be better). We also thought the wooden chairs were rather hard to sit on.
Best wishes, Wouter and Karen
Dear Willemijn and Saskia,
We have had a very nice holiday in Il Belvedere and we enjoyed the contact with Mariolina, the owner. She is very friendly!
Best wishes, Chantal
Hi Willemijn en Saskia,
we have very much enjoyed our holiday. Especially the view was fantastic. The apartment and pool were totally what we could wish for and the owner was friendly and caring. 2 small issues:
1. the lack of privacy on the terrace, however with the friendly neighbors we had this was really not an issue.
2. the matrasses need replacing.
Best wishes, Connie and Sjef
We once again had a good holiday. Nice house, spacious bedrooms and good bathrooms. The kitchen is good for Italian standards, but for us spoiled Dutch, it was a bit small. However after one day we got used to it. We also had lovely views. We do think this is one of the most beautiful areas. Compared to Todi where we were last time and towards the Bolsena lake. Unfortunately the chairs on the terrace were not very comfortable. We luckily did bring some chairs ourselves because we would not have been able to sit on those chairs a whole day long. Also one umbrellas was a bit little for the whole terrace. Luckily every day there was some wind which made it very nice at the poolside. We were unlucky that after arrival the boiler broke, so we spent the Sunday without hot water. Monday a new boiler was fitted. The owner apologized but at home we would have had the same problem when things break down over the weekend. She gave us some wine when we left to make up for the troubles.
All in all we have had a good holiday!
Best wishes, Ellen
We had a lovely Villa and time in Italy, the owner was both friendly and helpful. We would recommend the villa apartment to our friends. The only improvement we would have welcomed is the track to the villa being repaired following the recent rain damage to it. A bit of a holiday challenge, but did not let it spoil our visit.
Best regards, B. and J.
We really only have positive feedback for Il Belvedere. There was some difficulty communicating our late arrival (due to holiday traffic) to the owner in my limited Italian, but nonetheless she was there to meet us, even though it was late. She was around most days and was always friendly and helpful, even sourcing her own locally-produced olive oil for us to buy. The welcome pack of essentials (coffee, milk etc) was very welcome, as well as having the basics like washing up liquid, dishcloths, towels etc in place – more holiday lets should do this. The only problem, perhaps, was the proximity of the 3 apartments and their terraces, and the fact that Il Rosato is in the middle, necessitating walking past someone whenever we went to the pool / car etc. Luckily both sets of neighbours were quiet and respectful, but I can imagine that privacy might be an issue sometimes.
The situation of the apartments is glorious, with a wonderful view over Lake Corbara and lovely places such as Orvieto, Montecchio and Civitello del Lago to visit. The pool was cleaned early every day and there were plenty of sunbeds, parasols etc. The apartment itself was nicely, if rustically decorated – and the fan a godsend. All in all, we couldn’t recommend it highly enough for those wanting a quiet week away.
Hope this is useful.
Best regards, J. H.
We have had a wonderful time in Il Belvedere!! Beautiful place to stay for us, in Umbria. We will think about this place many times and recommend it to our friends.
Regards, J. and T.
Dear Saskia and Willemijn,
We had 2 fantastic weeks in Umbria. The house was well furnished and the view was amazing. It was quite hot during the night though. There was 1 ventilator for two rooms, maybe an idea to put one in each room. The first week we had the whole complex to our own, what a luxury! Each morning the owner of the house faithfully came by to clean the pool and take care of the plants which made the whole entourage look splendid. She also allowed us to use the washing machine, very convenient. All in all it was great.
Only minor point is that the driveway is a bit steep and has some loose gravel which made the engine of the car work a bit. We are lucky we didn't have any oncoming traffic since passing might have been difficult.
Kind regards, N.V.
Dear Saskia and Willemijn,
We have stayed on two locations in Umbria, A Montefalco and Il Belvedere. We really enjoyed Umbria. An immense green and hilly landscape with beautiful villages and towns, friendly population, delectable food and drink all at gentle prices. Both addresses were at lovely spots, well furnished and with nice pools. The furnishing was completely different, (Montefalco) was bright and modern while Il Belvedere was more characteristic for the area. One thing to keep in mind is that you need a car to get to both locations. Il Belvedere is situated at a few kilometers of the nearest village. The driveway (200m) to the apartments is a steep unasphaltated road with some rocks. depending on the weather the situation might be different everyday. The car is not on a holiday here.
I hope this feedback is of use. We are already considering returning to Umbria next year.
Best wishes, Hein and Marlie
Everything was fine. Good atmosphere, quiet. No particular comments. Say hi to the owner!
We very much enjoyed our holiday in Umbria. The apartment had a good atmosphere and was furnitured with care. When we arrived there was a surprise: we received a small supply of coffee, sugar, cookies and more then plenty towels and toilet paper. Sheets and towels were changed after a week and our host was very friendly and helpful. A bit of English would help her a lot, but it also had its charme to have to communicate in Italian (hands and feet!).
The pool did not have too much chloride - luckily - and was cleaned every day. We very much enjoyed the views over the lake from the pool.
I have no particular comments and would like to come back to Umbria.
With kind regards, Jolanda
A bit of feed back for you: we had a wonderful time in Umbria (Il Belvedere, Agriturismo Gubbio en Agri Uliveto)! Thank you for your help making the reservations and when we had problems with our flight, arriving a day later then planned!
Best regards, Carolien and Mick
We stayed in the apartment Rosato at Il Belvedere. A good apartment with a complete inventory. We only missed a large frying pan. Though we had a good time, we would not recommend the house to friends, because we found the outside space too limited and with little privacy. This was a large contrast with the private terrace we had in Pienza where we stayed the week before. There also were quite a lot of wasps. Hopefully our comments will help the owner to improve the comfort of her guests.
With kind regards, Eric & Annemiek
Reaction Villa in Umbria: Next year the owner will place large pots with plants in between the terraces, providing more privacy when sitting outside.
We had two lovely weeks in Umbria and stayed at the Agriturism Il Belvedere, near Orvieto. What a nice views over Lake Corbara! The apartment fulfilled all our wishes and the pool was larger then we expected. Because of its high position there always was a small breeze and we enjoyed the good views from the pool. The owners had prepared a small welcome package upon our arrival which made us feel at home at once. We saw a lot of the sights in the area: Orvieto, Todi, Baschi and we even went to Rome tiwce. Once by car and the other time by train from Orvieto. We very much enjoyed the local food and the good Orvieto wines! The owner was very friendly. We fondly remember our summer holiday in Umbria.
With kind regards, Laszlo, Simone, Simon, Ariana en Anouschka
Dear Saskia and Willemijn,
We have fond memories of our stay in the apartment Rosato. We had very good weather and were able to use the pool (it wasn't summer). We travelled a lot and saw Orvieto, Todi, Civitella, Civita and Spoleto. We loved the location of Il Belvedere with its views over Lake Corbara. Thank you for making this possible and for the correct information you supplied.
Best regards and who knows until next time. We wish you succes with your organisation.
PS. I forgot to mention that we were completely alone. There were no other guests which made our stay surely more private and special.
From before 2009:
Nos tempo este molto piacere. Grazie e Ciao! Erwin e Barbara
We spent a wonderful week in Umbria. The owner was very hospitable and kind. There even was a basket with specialities on our arrival. The house is nicely situated. Good beds, great shower, lovely swimming pool with deckchairs. Also a kitchen provided with everything needed to cook and have a bbq, in short good. A lot of things to see and do in the area. A side note is the soundproofing in between the apartments. Because there is closed dividing door, there is virtually no soundproofing between the apartments because sound bleeds through this door. We had to get used to it but it posed no problem. Also because we and our holidaying neighbours were considerate.
A tip (if permitted) would be to place a mirror along the road (opposite the driveway) because the exit isn't conveniently laid out and via the mirror it would be possible to notice if traffic is coming from the left or right.
Because we also spent another week in Northern Italy and a week in Southern Germany we are able to make a good comparison and this was the best apartment of all three. In short we will make sure to revisit this area - and there is no reason no to do this via Villainumbria- maybe even the same place.
We hope our comments are helpful.
Kind regards, Monique, Robine, Romée en Koen
Reaction Villa in Umbria: the door has been closed with a wall, therefore there is no longer any noice from one to the other apartment
I will return whenever I can' were the first words I have spoken after my stay at this farm. At arrival we were given a warm welcome, making us immediately feel at home. The apartments are very nicely furnished, basic but complete and very elegant. There are few apartments, making a stay here tranquil and with a friendly feel. The farm is in a beautiful spot, very good views on Lake Corbara. Therefore, I really would like to return here!
Thanks for the lovely stay! We have had a very good stay and enjoyed the views and the excellent apartment. We will certainly come again!
The down payment is 30% of the rental sum. The balance can be paid a month prior to arrival. There is a security deposit of Eur 150.
In Italy the tourism tax has been introduced. Each town can decide independently whether to apply this tax. It is important to keep in mind that the prices on our website do NOT include the tourism tax. Where we received confirmation from house owners that they have to ask for this tax, it is written underneath the price table.
Villa in Umbria is an intermediary and as such rents out holiday homes and apartments on behalf of their owners. When you book we will be sending an agreement in which you will find the bank details for the down payment and the final payment.
We know each vacation rental personally and also the owners of all the holiday rentals we have in our portfolio.
