La Pizzichina is a very charming old stone villa dating from the early 1600's where the time seems to stop.
It is set on a hilltop with a breathtaking view, facing the beautiful medieval city of Todi in the heart of Umbria. Excellent for an unforgettable holiday...

A second sitting room and a television and reading room on the first floor provide alternative areas for lounging.
