About the property

Stunning 360 Degree Views and Tranquillity in the Heart of Umbria

We built this villa with our hearts after we fell in love with the location and the views - you will as well! All materials and fittings have been crafted by local artisans, from the handmade cotto floors, to the typical timber and cotto ceilings and hand forged railings, beds and lamps. The new build ensures all mods and cons including underfloor heating, new plumbing and an electrical system that will not blow on a regular basis! The house is built so as to take full advantage of the breeze to cool it in the heat of summer. Outside the garden area is fenced off to ensure your little ones will not wander off, while allowing access to the olive grove and fields above the house. The 11 x 5m infinity pool has stunning views of Todi and the Apennines with poolside lounging & eating areas. There's a shop 2km away in Quadro & full range of shops & supermarket 8km in Todi. The house is ideally placed for sightseeing with Perugia and Orvieto 40 mins by car, Florence and Sienna 2 hrs, etc.

About Orietta Fioroni

Hello, my name is Orietta and I was born in Italy; I have two children who were born in Russia. My parents and siblings are scattered across Europe and our extended family across the world. We love to travel, meet new people, sample different cultures and cuisines. We are also active sportspeople, my favourite is diving, my son's skiing & sailing and both children will turn their hand at anything new and exciting! Crans is a place I have been visiting since 1963 and many of my happy childhood memories come from here.

Orietta Fioroni purchased this villa in 2009

Просторная вилла с головокружительным видом на Тоскану.

  • 4 of 5

Прекрасная вилла с очень красивым видом на горы и город Тоди. Реальный вид из сказки про горы. Просторная вилла, все новое и ухоженное. Приветственное вино и напитки порадовали нас. Прекрасный бассейн. Мы были в засушливый месяц, иногда пропадала вода в доме, это было непривычно. Минус, что вилла не оборудована интернетом. Orietta решала проблемы. Мы хорошо отдохнули семьей.

Excellent property in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Our group of six people spent a glorious week in this beautiful villa. The rooms are spacious, the beds are comfortable, and the pool area is inviting and has a spectacular view over the surrounding hills. The villa is clean with modern amenities and is well-maintained. The nearby towns of Todi, Orvieto, Assisi, Narni, and many others are easily accessible and offer lots of opportunities for day trips. Highly recommended!!

Amazing place for a calm vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and our friends stayed here for a week of our summer vacation. It was the perfect villa for a relaxing holiday for two families.

The villa is located high on a hillside facing south and has a stunning view of Todi. The infinity pool is perfect and is surrounded by areas with grass, which is great for playing and sunbathing. The house is really beautiful with nice bathrooms and bedrooms in different levels.

Cristina, who takes care of the house and welcomed us at our arrival, is very service-minded, even though she only speaks Italian. We had trouble turning on the light in the pool one evening and wrote a text-message to her - five minutes later she came by to help.

Thank you Orietta for letting us stay at your great villa - we would love to come back again som time :-)

Lovely family villa in marvellous location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I are regular visitors to the region and this is one of the best properties we have stayed in. A large roomy villa with great sized bedrooms, spotlessly clean and well maintained. My kids voted the swimming pool as the best. The villa is within easy reach of all local amenities and has a magnificent vista of Todi and the surrounding countryside. A fabulous place!

Great house with a fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

This is a very functional and charming house.

The surroundings is lovely and the view from the porch is fantastic.

The kitchen is well equipped and with the grill outside, you can cook great Italian food :-)

Very nice with the pool.

We spend 2 weeks in this lovely spot…and enjoyed every minute

The best place to go to for nautical pursuits is Lago Trasimeno, only 1 hr away by car just past Perugia. Here you will find sailing, wind surfing, jet skiing and water skiing.

If you are hankering for the sea, drive west to the famous island of Argentario, 2.5 hours away. And for the adrenaline junkies amongst you, how about rafting or canyoning on the Cascata delle Marmore?


There are a number of airports which you can use as the gateway to your holiday in Todi. Rome (either Fiumicino or Ciampino) only 2 hours away, Perugia (direct flights from London with Ryanair) 40 mins, Florence 2hrs and Pisa 3hrs. Due to the rural position of the villa car hire is essential, especially if you intend sightseeing.


The beautiful medieval town of Todi is only 8km from the property. There are fabulous walking routes set up by the tourist office (one just outside the property), and just a short drive will allow you to discover untold breathtaking panoramas, small borgos or unmarked churches with beautiful frescoes. Further afield Perugia is 40 mins by car, Rome and Florence 2hrs, Sienna 1.5hrs, Cortona 1hr, Orvieto 45 mins, Assisi 45 mins, Gubbio 1.5hrs.

Further Details:

Quadro, 2km up the road, has a church, bar, restaurant and small shop. All your food shopping, banking, medical etc. needs can be met in Todi, only 8km away. Marsciano and Perugia and their extensive shopping opportunities (including outlets) are 20 mins and 40 mins respectively. We have taken it upon ourselves to sample as many of the local (within 30 min drive) restaurants as possible and a full listing with comments is waiting for you at the villa, as well as hints on the best suppliers of local produce.
