Review 2924: Bed and Breakfast Valentina, Apartment


Review by Pat and Henry from KS who is a SlowTrav Contributor

2bed/2bath apartment in Orvieto, Umbria

Living room, photo by


March 2007, 3 days


Valentina’s bed and breakfast also offers an apartment. On her website the bottom picture is the two bedroom, two bath apartment that I rented. In the center of Orvieto this is a great location.

The apartment has two bedrooms with comfortable beds and dressers and closets. There are windows and skylights that make the apartment very bright. There is a bath off of one of the bedrooms which has a shower only and another off the hall between the bedrooms which has a tub, this one also has a washing machine. A full kitchen with dishes and cookware make cooking easy but with all the great restaurants in town there may not be much cooking.

There are in my opinion two negatives. One the apartment is up two flights of stairs and since it is directly under the roof, the ceilings in the bedrooms slant so that I at six foot two inches, could not stand at the bedroom windows. I slept on the ‘high’ side of the bed and had no trouble and my wife who is ‘vertically challenged’ slept on the low side and had no problems. This is offset by having skylights in the bedroom and living room, which makes the apartment bright in the day and makes it possible to watch the stars at night.

Valentina speaks wonderful English and is very sweet. She does her best to make guests feel comfortable and will make recommendations and reservations for places to eat. Since Valentina lives on the first floor she is available if there is a problem or you just need a taxi to the train station.

I have stayed in the B&B rooms and have recommended them now I can recommend the apartment. I paid €150 a night in March and thought it was a great value for the five of us.
