B&B Casale Hortensiae

Vocabolo Resano, 6 - 01028 Orte - Viterbo - Italy

Near Orte and half an hour from Rome, Viterbo and Orvieto, an ecological b & b surrounded by nature with views of the Tiber Valley, swimming pool, garden and organic and veg breakfast. Stay in half board starting from the second day.

An eco-sustainable bed & breakfast where you can experience the countryside, the real one: with dogs, cats, scratching chickens, braying donkeys, and flower beds gnawed by goats. You will appreciate the family welcome, the fireplace for the winter, the beautiful garden with swimming pool for summer days, real wool mattresses to rest on, and a rich organic veg breakfast.
An ideal starting point to visit the main tourist areas of central Italy, the b & b Casale Hortensiae is only 37 minutes from Rome (easily reached by train from Orte) and half an hour drive from Orvieto, Viterbo, Lake Bolsena, Bomarzo, Amelia, Narni and many Etruscan archaeological sites. B&B Casale Hortensiae is located just a few minutes from the A1 exit of Orte, even if it does not seem: around the house only nature and open view on the Tiber Valley.

You can taste vegetarian, organic and local cuisine, go to explore beautiful cultural, archaeological, and thermal itineraries between Lazio, Umbria and Tuscany. In all periods of the year there are cultural events, food and wine events, folk festivals and historical re-enactments of great interest.
The Casale Hortensiae is also located along the Via Amerina, which winds through the Umbrian and Lazio countryside and can be traveled on foot, by bicycle or on horseback.
It can be reached by walking a few hundred meters of slightly bumpy road - the first necessary step to slow down the pace.
Sustainability and harmony with nature are principles that inspire our daily life from well before they became "fashionable": we heat water with solar energy, use water and electricity sparingly, try to reuse all the our waste so as to produce as little waste as possible, we use seasonal vegetables, grown or harvested by us (wild herbs). Nature gives us what we need at that moment.
If all this is for you ... we are waiting for you with open arms!
The house, furnished with charm, has 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, with the possibility of accommodating up to 11 adults and 2 children. On the ground floor there is a large kitchen / dining room with a 6-person table and a fireplace, a living room with fireplace and a large veranda overlooking the garden and, raised by five steps, a room with an adjacent bathroom. On the first floor, two double rooms with private bathroom and two family rooms: one with a single bed and a double loft, the other with two beds + two mezzanines. Shared bathroom with bathtub. Going up another few steps there is another double room with private bathroom. The house is completed by a large porch equipped with a table for 12, overlooking the garden and the swimming pool (12m x 6). The house is equipped with satellite television (in case of exceptional event) stereo, internet access in common areas (which usually goes off at night) mosquito nets on the windows. In the garden, in addition to the pool, there is a ping pong table, swings and a wood-burning oven.

    Bellissimo casale immerso nella natura. Ricco di ricordi di una vita dei padroni di casa che da subito ti fanno sentire a proprio agio.
    La cucina è sana e basata sui prodotti dell'orto e a Km zero. Ottimo il pane fatto in casa!
    Colazione e cena tutti insieme come ad essere in famiglia.
    Dal Casale Hortensiae si possono raggiungere diverse interessanti località da visitare. In soli 30 minuti in treno si può raggiungere Roma.

    Posto reale, autentico. Collocazione spettacolare con vista sulle colline. Arredamento di gran gusto, tante cose vecchie e ben accostate, della tradizione contadina italiana come di quella... brasiliana! Accoglienza calorosa, come si fosse di famiglia.

    It has been noticed: Organic or Local Food.

    Mi fa molto piacere che abbiate apprezzato il nostro posto. Non è da tutti… :)
    A presto!
