About Bardo

Hello ! I am a fashion photographer, I've lived in London , loving it ,for 19 years. Am now in Orvieto and occasionally travelling to Milano, Paris and London for Italian Vogue. My girlfriend, her son (aged 16), my son (aged 13) and myself live on the estate in a totally seperate house. I tend to always think positive (there are never problems, only solutions !). Looking forwards to meet you! P.S. This is a very "fashion pic of me!"

Bardo purchased this villa in 1980

Why Bardo chose Orvieto

Because it has the most beautiful position and view. It also is totally secluded and away from reality !!! I fell

in love with it as soon as I saw it ( one needed an enormous amount of imagination as it was practically non existent.

What makes this villa unique

Total peace, although only 4 miles from Orvieto.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From our guest book summer 2010 ."The booking through internet was made in february , we selected pool , dog , italy ..We never could have guessed that we would end up in paradise ! The view on Orvieto ,the nice atmosphere bardo's olive oil and dinners on the terrace made this holiday perfect !(Rilistus Oosterhuis )

La Carota has such charm ,reminiscent from a place from a bygone world .The gardens, the trees, the setting ...amongst the wild life ,owls, bat, porcupione, deer , wild boar .. and the occasional french girl !( Andrew Oldland)

Dear Bardo I cannot think of a more heavenly place for a holiday or a more green and pleasant one We have adored our stay here ...(Andrew Martin-Smith )

La Carota equals paradise We have had the most wonderful fanmily holiday possible Thank You for letting us share this umbrian heaven (David Shannon )

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 weeks at this villa, using it as a home base for our travels around Italy. The villa had plenty of space for 2 families and Bardo was very responsive when we asked for anything. I recommend to anyone!

Doesn't get better

  • 5 of 5

We just spent ten days with the Duke and couldtn speak more highly of the place. La Carotta has got to have the best View of Orvieto. it is perched at the top of of a rivine overlooking the staggeringly beautiful Giovanni Pisanno Duomo. As the sun goes down the sunlight lights up the jutting sandstone rock face on which Orvieto is mounted. It really is the most beautiful thing to see.

If you wake up early Orvieto hovers ethereally over the mist, it really is magical.

The house is done with style, Bardo the owner is a photographer for Vogue so the place has been done with taste. Its practical and great for kids.

If your lucky Bardo will come down and cook you dinner. He is a hell of a character, and never fails to entertain.

We have had a very happy time, thank you La Carotta!

Magic

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at La Carota a number of times and I can never wait to return to this magical hill-top house with its unforgettable views of Orvieto. My children have always said that staying at La Carota with its

enchanting gardens and beautiful pool was the best family holiday ever.

But La Carota is perfect for adults who just want to relax and explore

the area. Bardo Fabiani, the effervescent owner, is always at hand to help, advise and even to cook. Bliss!

Kids heaven

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful large family holiday at La Carota. Outstanding location, stunning views of Orvieto, quite close to the town and the autostrada for sightseeing.

Extensive well kept grounds and marvellous pool make it ideal for children. Not a modernised house, but spacious and flexible accommodation and exceptionally well equipped kitchen make it excellent for catering for a large group.

Charming owner Bardo always on hand to help, advise, and , in our case, cook superbly!
