Perched on a limestone cliff, the Umbrian town of Orvieto never fails to impress first time visitors. Art, history and culture blend together to make Orvieto one of the most important tourist destinations of this region. It is a popular destination for those seeking luxury real estate properties, whether it’s an apartment in the historic centre or a prestigious farmhouse in the countryside. Another attraction is its proximity to the main centres and well-known towns in both Umbria and Tuscany such as Perugia, Città Della Pieve, Siena, Rome and Florence. Orvieto represents an attractive investment opportunity for those seeking a bit of peace and tranquility while still enjoying the comforts of the city. Foreign buyers who come to the city are looking for charming properties that are well appointed, stylish and can be renovated to suit individual tastes. With regards to the farmhouses in the countryside, buyers are looking for elegant and refined farmhouses in prestigious locations with a particular style and a beautiful view. The most important factor when choosing to buy in Umbria, however, is that the properties must be easily accessible, not too isolated, yet with a degree of privacy. We are talking about people who are looking for second homes where they can have relaxing holidays and chill out away from the stress of big city living.
