Todi apartment description

“Casa del Gelso” is the ground-floor apartment of a beautiful villa in Todi (Umbria). The house was built in 2006, over the remains and in the style of a historical farm. The house provides all the comforts of vacation living, and is in a delightful location. At only 50 meters from the medieval walls of the town, and 150 meters from the Porta Perugina, it stands at the Center of an estate featuring aged oaks, walnut trees, olive trees, and fruit orchards. The owners, Paola and Giovanni, live in Davis, California (USA) and love coming to the Villa for their vacations with their 3 children. During the rest of the year the villa is available for rent from the owners.
The villa is composed of two fully independent apartments: one is on the ground floor and the other is on the first floor. “Casa del Gelso”, is the apartment on the ground floor. The other apartment on the first floor, 'Casa del Pero'', is owned by Giovanni's Brother Francesco and also available for rent.
The “Casa del Gelso” is fully furnished and fully equipped, including an HD Cable TV, high speed internet, a microwave, a blow drier, a Webber barbecue and a washing machine. The patio in front of the entry door can be used for dining (there is a portable wooden table that can be set there) or for relaxing, browsing the web, or having a drink. The master bedroom opens to a terrace with a spectacular view of the Umbrian Hills. The apartment sleeps 4-5 persons in total, 2 in a queen-size bed in the master bedroom and up to 3, in single beds in the other room. The house has outdoor parking space for 2 cars.
Peaceful and secluded, the house is very conveniently located near the historic center of Todi. It provides the ideal location for day-trips to places of very high artistic, historical, natural and religious interest. In less than one hour drive guests can reach Orvieto, Perugia, Spoleto, Assisi (St. Francis), Spello, Cortona, Trevi, Lake Trasimeno, the Carsulae Roman Ruins, Arezzo (Piero della Francesca Frescoes), Norcia, Cascia and many other Umbrian and Southern Tuscan Towns (Siena is 90 minutes by car, Florence and Rome are 2 hours ). Also within one hour drive there are exceptional naturalistic sites such as “Cascata delle Marmore” (the largest waterfalls in Italy), Monti Sibillini and several natural parks.

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About: The Villa was built in 2006 by our family, on the site of an old Umbrian farm. Our family has lived in Todi for 3 generations. Our grandfather first built his home in the center of Todi. Our father has built this Villa. The owners, Giovanni and Paola, consider Todi, the town were Giovanni was born, their second home. They live in Davis, California with their three Children. Our family built this house in order to be our vacation home, caring for every detail and loving every corner of it. We enjoy every moment in the summer when we can spend time here. We welcome our guests very warmly and we are excited that they can enjoy our home.

                  Why Todi:
                  This property is unique. It i surrounded by olive trees and fruit trees. Still it is walking distance from the center of the city of Todi. It is ideal for people who like doing cultural, artistic and religious tourism in Umbria and Tuscany. It is ideal in the summer (breezy and not too hot), in the fall (harvesting season) in the winter (for the wonderful holidays decorations and activities in the small umbrian towns) and in the spring (Easter is a great time to be in Todi).

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  The home is ideal to relax in the front patio, to enjoy the view of Umbrian hills from the bedroom terrace or to take leisurely walks to the wall and to the center of Todi. It is a fantastic base to visit Umbria, Tuscany, Rome, Latium, Florence, Siena and many other great locations.' Moreover it is a great location for day-trips to historic and artistic towns. If you like sipping your Cappuccino in your bedroom, you can have it there and enjoy a great view of the Umbrian hills. If you enjoy a stroll and you like to have your cappuccino in Piazza you can just walk to Todi's center.
