Todi chateau / country house description

Big villa with 13 meter pool on secluded hillside. Comfy chairs, sofas, beds, patio furniture. Close to medieval towns, vineyards. Fabulous restaurants nearby, and great ingredients to cook in the excellent kitchen. Swimming, walking, sunning. Ideal for readers, writers, artists, for getting away or discovering Umbria. The house will suit a party of friends, 2-3 couples, 2-3 small families or one big one.

Go on an outing to Todi, Orvieto, Amelia, Assisi, Deruta, Spoleto, Perugia, or other spots, have a lunch of wild mushrooms or asparagas, come home to cool off in the pool, cook dinner in the great kitchen while you start sipping the local wine...look skyward.

Suggested dates are from May through October. Beginning in November, it gets too cool and wet. Umbria gets lots of rain in the winter and spring, so it is very green but we don't advise going before May 1. The summer days are clear and hot in the afternoon -- but the house stays cool. And the nights are cool and perfect, usually with great star gazing.

Birders: you are sure to see the Hoopoe.

Keywords: Big traditional villa for 2 to 9 set into hillside and surrounded by fields. This is a totally private and quiet escape where you can medidate alone or entertain a crowd -- hike to town or do laps in the water.Take your coffee to the patio, chop garlic at the island in the open kitchen, sink into an easy chair with a book, enjoy the reverse sunset from the pergola, get to Todi for dinner and shops, cool off in the pool. Very comfortable, very beautiful.

                              • The villa is located in a rural area just outside the tiny Umbrian mountain village of Toscolano.

                                Had a perfectly wonderful month in Umbria. It's quite rural, and it was nice to tool around the back roads and look in on tiny (and not so tiny) villages such as Orvieto, Assisi, Perugia, Terni, Todi, etc. It was also nice to just sit home on one of the sunny patios, sip a drink, and listen to the hum of happy insects in the fabulous lavender bushes. Thanks for a great time and I can't wait to return.

                                My husband and I absolutely loved staying here. It is a beautiful, comfortable, well-furnished house with everything you need to settle right in and enjoy your stay. Cooks will especially love the huge kitchen with modern appliances and a word burning fireplace. We made many a delicious meal in that fireplace! The villa is deep in the countryside, totally secluded and private. The nearest town, very charming, has fewer than 100 inhabitants. Still, it is easy to get here from Rome, and within striking distance of Orvieto, Todi, Deruta, and other attractions. The charm of the place though is being far from the tourist crowds, and having the chance to be part of Umbrian country life. The owners know all the best spots for provisions, and restaurant meals and shopping, so using the notes and guides they've left in the house you can quickly get into the rhythm of life here. The bedrooms are comfortable, pool is great, the views are amazing-- it's a real oasis!

                                This rental exceeded my expectations. It is a meticulously restored farmhouse - without being "precious" - and situated on a lovely property with beautiful vistas from each of its windows.The large property is very private and blissfully quiet yet quite close to a charming, small village. Its interior is more spacious than the typical renovated Italian property, very comfortable, and tastefully furnished, with all the 21st century amenities one could hope for. There were six of us in my party and we had more than enough space to peel away for solitary time. The home is perfectly situated for day trips to Umbrian/Tuscan hill towns and a "foodies" kitchen to return to and cook your own Umbrian dinners. Just the view from my bedroom window has me longing to return - which I definitely plan to do. My only hesitation in writing this review is that others will discover what a treasure it is and make it harder for me to book.
