Manager info

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 PG, Italy:
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.
