where we are

Conveniently situated in the peaceful countryside, Villa Il Leccio, this charming stone house of the 18th century (reachable by 2,5 km of white road), with its own private swimming pool, stands invitingly in the unspoilt area of Benano Valley, only 10 km from the magnificent hill-toptown of Orvieto, Umbria. In the small village of Castel Giorgio you we’ll find shops, banks, supermarkets (5 km drive).
The medieval towns of Assisi, Perugia, Todi, Spoleto, Arezzo can be easily reached by excellent road links, and also Siena, Pienza, Montalcino, and the beautiful Val d’Orcia are less than one hour and half away. Bolsena lake is at twenty minutes drive and the Monte Argentario coast, one of the most famous seaside in Italy, is just one hour twenty far away. Even Rome and Florence can be reached by train from Orvieto in one hour. The villa is well situated to reach in one day excursion more than one of the fascinating Etruscan and Medieval precincts of the Maremman hills:  Tuscania – Civita di Bagnoregio – Sovana – Pitigliano.
