Molinella is set in a panoramic position on an Umbrian hilltop at 25 min from Orvieto, offering a stunning view over small patches of fields, the valley below and even the mountains.
The property consists of a farm house (the main villa) and a cottage nicely and traditionally decorated. Molinella offers generous outdoor space and a beautiful garden. Two additional gracious outdoor rooms, defined by straw-covered pergolas shade the sun but let the year-round breezes flow across the property, a lovely byproduct of the setting at 500 feet above sea level. Molinella has an east facing terrace to enjoy the morning sun, a long outside dining... table, facing north and therefore shaded and cool, and a covered terrace facing Lake Alviano, a WWF protected area.
Behind a little olive grove above the main villa, there are the swimming pool (15 x 7 meters) and a private tennis court.
Molinella is a cozy, family style home. The villa has air conditioning and ample rooms. The interiors are comfortably furnished in a tasteful, traditional style.
The surroundings offer great possibilities for hiking or bicycle trips and visiting the typical hilltop towns of Umbria.
A teak stand holds a comfortable rope hammock, wide enough for two, with pillow for afternoon naps. The panorama from these higher elevations are even more stunning.
Molinella can be rented for up to 14 people or for up to 10 people. In that case the guest house will be closed.
