if you book before 1 march 2015, early birds discount 10% The cottage/gîte is located in a romantic park of 2 ha.(5 acres) on a historical site, which is named by the owners 'al settimo cielo' (in seventh heaven). Traces of the Etruscans who lived here 3000 years ago are still around, and their caves on the premises remain in use, for example as communal kitchen. The site is perfect for relaxing, reading, thinking, dwelling around, playing and cooking together. Beloved by families, who want to strengthen the family ties, which suffer from the daily rush of working life. It is quite the opposite of Disneyland or some busy camping. On the site itself you will find a heavenly peace and quiet. Are you looking for more bustle and the activity of the city, many possibilities are at disposa...if you book before 1 march 2015, early birds discount 10% The cottage/gîte is located in a romantic park of 2 ha.(5 acres) on a historical site, which is named by the owners 'al settimo cielo' (in seventh heaven).

On the site itself you will find a heavenly peace and quiet. Are you looking for more bustle and the activity of the city, many possibilities are at disposal. The site inspires your creativity in a compelling way. If you are not yet a fine arts practitioner, your career will start here! The owners will gladly provide you fine arts materials and, upon request, an art teacher, if available. Price to be agreed in advance. For many of our guests, our personal and extremely flexible approach is a compelling reason they choose to stay with us. As for meals e.g., you can take care of your self or enjoy our care. In the latter case, we provide fresh bread in the morning. Twice a week you can subscribe for our table d'hôte with heavenly home cooked meals, and wine from the barrels of Bacchus(25€ per person). By the way the name of the cottage/gite 'Vista Sul Mare' is a real misnomer nowadays because – funnily – since ages there is no sea in sight in Umbria. However, during the glacial period there used to be sea in this area. Now stunning views of a fantastic landscape and some walls on the property consisting of 'sabbia di mare' (seasand) are the relics of this period. You can see the famous cathedral of Orvieto . Although the cottage/gite can lodge 4 to 6 people it is cosy enough for only 2 persons. Things to do: Sightseeing & shopping, e.g. Orvieto, Città della Pieve, Todi, Parrano. Rome and Florence are 1 and 1,5 hrs away by train. The nearest shops and restaurants are at 4 km / 2.5 miles distance. Bathing and swimming in two big lakes and several thermal baths in the vicinity. Walking / hiking and biking. Loads of art and culture. The owners will gladly take you to hidden places that you will not easily find on your own. Apart from admissions, pay us what our tour guide service is worth to you. If you prefer to go on your own, there are many small towns and villages nearby as well as Etruscan excavations, museums, churches, sculpture parks etc.More

About the neighbourhood
Vista sul mare, located in the parc of in seventh heaven, is in the countryside of the ‘borgo’ Ficulle, near Orvieto in the south of Umbria. Life and food are still slow here. Far away from the daily stress, volatility and superficiality. In Ficulle (appr. 1500 inhabitants) itself are shops like two small self service shops, two butchers, two restaurants, three bars, a doctor, a dentist, a pharmacist, several hairdressers. In the nearness you can find bigger supermarkets. The lively and somehow tourist city of Orvieto is within a stone’s throw. It has the most wonderful gothic cathedral you can imagine. Besides you could visit a lot of lesser known but even more beautiful small cities, within half an hour’s reach: Parrano, Monte Leone, Città della Piève for example. By train Rome as well...
How to get there
How to arrive in the seventh heaven, Strada Cipolla 1, Ficulle(TR)? By airplane: most airline companies fly to Rome. In our experience – from the UK to Rome - Ryanair to Rome Ciampino is the cheapest one. After your landing at the airport you can either rent a car or take the shuttle bus, which will bring you to Rome's central station 'Roma Termini'. There you can take a direct train towards Orvieto. After you are settled down in the train, you may call us and we will pick you up in Orvieto. The train journey will take less than one hour. A few tips: 1. in our experience internet booking is the cheapest way of car rental (easy when you book your flight); 2. travelling with Ryanair better not buy a buss ticket for the Terravison bus in the plane. It is more expensive but – more important...
