The stunning town of Orvieto, which sits perched atop a cliff, entices legions of visitors ever year, who are blown away by the beautiful views of the Umbrian hills from its lofty position and entranced by the sublime medieval architecture of its buildings. This vibrant town’s rich historic attractions include the stunning Duomo di Orvieto cathedral, the impressive Pozzo di S. Patrizio well with its striking spiral staircase, and the subterreanean tunnels carved that were beneath this fascinating settlement in ancient times. Its community of traditional artisans also provide a cultural link to the past, and the area’s culinary specialities —such as wild boar and truffles— ensure foodies will also find much to enjoy. But where to stay when exploring this beautiful town just an hour outside Rome? These top Airbnb vacation rentals are some of the best options available.
Combining a spectacular historic setting with stylish modern decor, this superbly reviewed property would make for an excellent romantic getaway for two. Located within a medieval palazzo, this private bed-and-breakfast room enjoys lovely garden views, and boasts a range of charming historic touches, including wooden ceilings and stone arches. Despite its centuries-old setting it comes with such mod-cons as air conditioning, TV and WiFi access. Its central location also places it within easy reach of local restaurants, which will come in useful as there’s no kitchen. The host can also arrange guided tours of a local vineyard, so wine aficionados should take note. Former guests raved about the “fantastic” location close to local amenities and the “wonderful” host.

This light and tastefully decorated one-bedroom flat is another property that will delight guests with its location on the town walls, for it enjoys beautiful views across the valley from right outside the front door. Indeed, former guests gave its position a five-star rating and admitted to being left speechless by the “breathtaking” views. Perfect for couples, but capable of sleeping a third person thanks to a sofa bed, the property includes air conditioning —which will come in useful during the summer—, WiFi access and a full kitchen. There’s also free parking on site, should that view tempt you into a little exploration of the wider area by car.
