Todi house description
Throw open the shutters and smell the roses! Luxurious farmhouse in the Green Heart of Umbria. Beautifully appointed house with private pool in 12 acres of fenced, meticulously tended grounds boasting rose gardens, a sea of lavender, an olive grove and fruit orchard.
Casale Melograno (Pomegranate House) is the Italian farmhouse of your dreams. Completely private but only one hour from Rome and Perugia, the house sits on a hillside that overlooks green valleys of oak and chestnut trees and the charming medieval hamlet of Tuscolano.
Built in the 1800s, this stone farmhouse was completely renovated in 2001 and, while the original character of the place was conserved, it now offers every modern convenience. Oak beams and terracotta floors are featured without. The decor is both elegant and inviting. Decorating is a passion of the owner and his wife and this is reflected in the many beautiful pieces of furniture, art and dishes they have collected.
On the first floor there is a full bath with shower, three bedrooms and another bathroom are located on the second floor. The first floor has a great room featuring a kitchen/living room/dining room. A pretty hall which doubles as a quiet reading room leads to the largest of the terraces which looks over the rose garden and pool down to the chestnut woods at the back of the property.
Ample terraces on three sides of the house will tempt you outside and are favourite places for dining and reading. The large terrace looks down the garden to the pool. Comfortable chairs, tables and everything you need is provided.
The grand piano-shaped swimming pool is artfully landscaped and surrounded by a rose garden (containing some 200 bushes!) on one side, rows of lavender on the other and a large lawn. A pool house with two showers, changing rooms and a selection of chairs, loungers and pool toys are at your disposal.

A little piece of heaven
A little piece of heaven
The peace and beauty of this place refreshes the weariest soul! We had completed a 70 km bike ride before heading here and this was exactly what we needed to restore our bodies and souls. One evening we had Paolo cook for us and it was absolutely delicious. As good as any local restaurant without moving an inch. Another evening, he and his wife took us to a tiny, jewel of a town with a charming restaurant we would have never found on our own. They know every inch of the area! We will definitely return.

About the owner: I was born and raised in Rome and still live there most of the time as I run my own business. My wife and I love to entertain - I do most of the cooking! - and Casale Melograno provides the perfect place for getting together with friends. It is the antidote to the stress of city life and I enjoy nothing more than sharing the magic of this place with friends and family. The simple pleasure of using the olive oil produced by our trees and eating our homegrown vegetables gives me immense satisfaction. My wife is an expert at ferreting out the most unique restaurants, towns and shops. We always surprise our friends with our latest find!
Why the Owner Chose Todi:
We have friends in the area and knew it quite well before buying. The unspoilt countryside and the proximity to the highway provide the best of both worlds. Within five minutes of seeing this beautiful, solid, stone farmhouse, we knew it had to be ours.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The peace and quiet of the countryside. Lying in the big hammock by the pool listening to the birds. Dining on excellent local specialities on one of the three outside terraces.
