Locanda Rosati, Orvieto: 357 reviews and 23 photos


We really enjoyed exploring the huge property. It seemed like everyday we found something different.

We did notice the smell of hazelnuts when we were walking in one area of the property. Being curious I asked Giampiero, one of the family, where the smell was originating from. He smiled and took us on another tour. It seems that his farm has many hazel nut trees and after the harvest and shelling of the nuts there is a great many shells left over. Giampiero designed a high tech. boiler that is buried in a shelter out on the grounds. The Boiler heats the farmhouses water and heats the building. Instruments in a closet in the Inn show constant flow and all the vital statistics of the system room by room. It seems that the shells of the nuts burn extremely hot and make an excellent fuel.
