PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Casale Sally is a romantic farmhouse in the hills between Orvieto e Todi, characteristic Umbrian medieval towns visited by tourists from all over the world for the beauty of their monuments. Casale Sally is in a splendid panoramic position overlooking Lake Corbara; inserted in the Tevere river park, is the ideal refuge for those who wish to spend their holidays in total relaxation away from the chaos of the city, discovering the benefits of a healthy country life. The farmhouse, built entirely in stone, is situated in a large olive grove and park of about 3.500 square meters. The ground floor has terracotta tiled floors whereas the first floor has wooden floors. The ceilings are in wood and the house is furnished simply but elegantly with accessories creating a romantic but functional atmosphere. Basic shopping can be done in the nearby village of Civitella del Lago while the proximity of the motorway exit of Orvieto gives easy access to the important historical centres of central Italy such as Rome, Florence, Perugia, Assisi, Siena, Cortona and Montepulciano.
Externally, on the ground floor, there is an ample furnished patio which overlooks the Tuscan and Umbrian hills, from which one accesses into a large living room sub-divided into conversation area, furnished with comfortable sofas, TV and fireplace, and dining area, with table for six people, a kitchen, pantry and laundry room. There is also a twin bedroom and a bathroom with shower on this floor. From the living room a staircase leads to the first floor with two bedrooms, one double and one twin, and a bathroom with tub.
Casale Sally is surrounded by a gently sloping land of about 3.500 sqm consisting of parkland and ancient olive trees among which benches have been placed for admiring the enchanting views and sunsets of Umbrian countryside.

The position near the top of a large hill, gives this villa an excellent location, near enough to Orvieto to shop, but a quiet location, with stunning views over the lake. The accommodation is exactly as it looks in the photos, but having a large log burning fire place was a bonus, which was used several times during our stay and added to the rustic charm. The pool is cleaned every day and the gardens are lovely, so crack open a bottle and just chill by the pool or on the terrace.
The owner was extremely helpful, we sent a shopping list of food to be there when we arrived and she organised all of our list and where all delicious. The list was especially difficult for them, as one of our party required Gluten Free food and she managed even the GF bread.
The owner was full of local knowledge and a generous host, as because it was unseasonably cold for the time of year, she gave us logs for the fire, which made the place very cosy.
I would certainly recommend the Villa to couples or families without small children (garden not really small child friendly).
