In the most antique district of the town of Orvieto, set on the Cliff overlooking the valley and the surrounding hills, we find “Domus Magnifica”. It consists of an eleventh-century tufa building that dominates the western side of the Cliff, with panoramic garden and wide windows that offer marvellous panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. Domus Magnifica, with its architecture and brightness, offers an evocative and charming journey into history.
A real plunge into history, a place full of splendour that charms for its architectural structure and its absolutely unique position: Domus Magnifica was first designed in 1264 as Romanic church, then the work stopped due to the beginning of the construction of Orvieto Cathedral. Within this treasure chest of history, a solid steel structure of more than 1.000sqm on 4 levels has been realised, in order to allow the optimal use of the spaces. The complex was restored in 1977.
In the basement, we find a large reception hall, bathrooms and several accessory rooms. At ground floor, characterised by a wide window with Gothic arch that illuminates all the building, we have one of the 3 rooms used for the events, the professional kitchen, the bathroom and some accessory rooms. Going up a few steps, we reach the upper level, where we find wide multipurpose areas. On the top level we have the main living room, which can host up to 160 seated guests. The building is provided with lift and dumbwaiter too.
The property includes about 1.500sqm of garden, a pizzeria of about 70sqm to be restored and two grottoes to be restored for a total area of about 400sqm.
This prestigious residence is currently used for private events, like weddings, ceremonies and food&wine tastings. It could also be suitable for food service, art exhibits, art ateliers, fashion stores, photo shootings, shows, workshops, seminars, movie location and other events. Possibility to turn it into a private residence.
Domus Magnifica is located in the ancient medieval district of the town, in one of the most panoramic points of Orvieto Cliff, easy to reach from the A1 motorway exit and the railway station. From here, it will be possible to easily reach and visit the major and most characteristic hamlets in Umbria and Tuscany.
Civita di Bagnoreggio (VT), the “Dying town”, is only 24km away. In about 1hour by car, we can reach Bolsena Lake, Todi, Perugia and Assisi.
