    What else ...

    My name is Simona , I am a private chef, cooking instructor, Sommelier and Gardener! I am originally from Rome and I moved in the Umbrian country years ago . I love it here, very peaceful and welcoming. The farmhouse is located near by a small medieval village and only 20 minutes driving from the beautiful town of Orvieto. Orvieto is located between Florence and Rome, so definitely few trips that you MUST enjoy during your staying.
