About the owner: Born in the U.S., I lived in Italy from a very early age; returning to the States to attend college. It seems that growing up in Rome marked me with a kind of longing for 'home' that could be assuaged only by having a home of my own in Italy. It is a place most special to us, and happily to our guests and friends.
Why the Owner Chose Todi PG, Italy:
The great age of the ruined, abandoned convent was highly appealing to us. And the views out over the Tiber Valley and up to the town of Todi are spectacular. We had long wanted to own a home in Umbria; and after 6 years of searching; this was the one. The work to restore the property took another 5 years as it was all done by hand; taking care to preserve as many of the original features as possible. A true labor of love.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
'Conventaccio' offers the best of two worlds: an authentic stone country house in a spectacular setting, surrounded by gardens, orchards and fields; yet so close to town that everything is just a short walk away. Just 3oo meters from the entry gates to the property is the funicular terminal which is the preferred way to reach the center of Todi. The ride is free, as the town wishes to discourage cars in the center-“centro”- and in any case, parking is almost impossible. Todi offers many outstanding dining opportunities. The local cuisine is hearty, flavorful, entirely seasonal, and inexpensive. When in season, menus feature local truffles and game; especially wild Boar. The produce is excellent, the local wines delightful. Weather is mild. Views incredible from every window and the many terraces. A perfect location to simply relax and de-stress, or as a home base from which to tour the cultural and artistic treasures of Umbria. During the work to restore the property, the entire building was made "earthquake proof" with steel reinforcing rods in walls and ceilings. Glad we did that!
