In the medieval heart of Orvieto, “Il Tufo nel Cielo” is an apartment that combines the living comfort and the authenticity of a property in the very historical centre. On two levels, it is set on the second and third floor of a perfectly restored townhouse. It covers a total area of about 230sqm and is composed as follows: on the first level, we find a large and cosy open space living area with open kitchen, and two spacious bedrooms, each with en suite bathroom; going up the beautiful stone staircase, characterised by design lighting and recesses framed by a splendid tufa arch, we get to the upper floor, where we have a hallway, a large and bright bedroom with en suite bathroom on a side, a sleeping area with bathroom on the other side and a utility room.
“Il Tufo nel Cielo” combines tradition and design, thanks to the careful restoration that preserved the original beauty of the ceilings (part with wooden beams and cotto tiles, and part in all wood).
The entire apartment is also characterised by tufa arches and recesses, perfectly restored.
A very charming living unit, to live in the heart of the Etruscan town.

The property is already inserted into the vacation rentals market, so it could easily provide an income. Anyway, it could also be used as main residence or second home, considering its proximity to the main transportation routes.

Great Estate Group, through the owner’s specialist, draws up a due diligence on each property, which allows to perfectly know the urbanistic and cadastral situation of every property. The due diligence can be required in case of real interest in the property.

The property is owned by private individuals and the purchase will be taxed according to the current laws.


The property is provided with all the necessary utilities. The rooms are provided with smoke alarm, air conditioning, dehumidification system, double-glazed windows, ADSL and fiber optic. The autonomous heating system is fuelled by methane.


The apartment was entirely restored and completed in 2008, concerning both the systems, the internal layout and the finishing. The pavements are in cotto-effect single-fired tiles.


“Il Tufo nel Cielo” is located in the medieval heart of the town of Orvieto, on the top of a tufa cliff full of history and art. The A1 motorway exit and the railway station are about 5km away from the historical centre. The town is full of amenities and cultural activities all year round. Thanks to its vicinity to Rome (about 1hour) and Florence (about 2hours), Orvieto is an ideal place to live and to explore the marvellous surrounding territory.
