We will be staying at La Locanda della Quercia Calante, a beautifully restored farmhouse and cottages twenty minutes from Orvieto, in Umbria. Rooms are simple and tastefully decorated with wood-beamed ceilings, terra cotta floors, and charming individual porches. There is a cosy living room in the main house, dining room with fireplace, al fresco dining under an arbor of trailing vines if weather permits, a mineral spring swimming pool, beautifully manicured grounds, peaceful garden spots to meditate, a large beautiful yoga room with views of the countryside and a classroom which is a lovely sunroom. The food is delicious, with vegetarian options, and largely from their organic farm. All wines are carefully selected and local. We will enjoy the famous Orvieto wine!
