ALESSANDRA purchased this Farmhouse in 1991
Why ALESSANDRA chose Todi
Todi is a beautiful Medieval town in the centre of Umbria and our countryhouse is located just 8 km from the historic centre, 4 from the main town, in the old village of Torregentile, few metres from the ancient Medieval castle of Carognola. Thanks to its central location in the middle of Umbria, Todi provides the ideal starting point to reach all the interesting features and typical localities within Umbria, in a short time. Todi offers the traveller a splendid array of art, culture, events and festivals across the region. This, together with the unique Umbrian cuisine offered through a large variety of local ingredients prepared in small trattorie and restaurants, and the celebrated wines, provides many great opportunities for a broad range of interests and activities.

Beautiful farmhouse in quiet county setting
We were two families with 5 teenagers. This property catered for all our needs giving the kids their own private space in a large upstairs room. There are numerous areas outside to sit and we made good use of the large patio with fanastic views to Todi and the umbrian countyside. There is a large BBQ area with more sitting near the pool, plus a shaded area beside the pool for those who dont want to worship the sun. The pool and grounds were kept clean and at end of first week we had a bed change and clean of the house which was appreciated. Alessandra and Leonardo are wonderful hosts and helped us with a few mishaps. We also spent a wonderful day pasta making, sampling wine and eating what we had made. Both of them shared their passion for umbria and its food which really helped our holiday experience.
We would have love to return to this beautiful house and setting.
Superb Country House near Todi
We had an amazing stay at Alessandra's and Leonardo's family home near Todi - there were 9 of us for two weeks (two families). The house is spacious and is in extensive grounds and the view of Todi in the distance from the balcony at night, was second to none. We were located within easy reach of the Umbrian sights and tourist attractions, for example, Trevi, Orvieto, Assisi. Rome was only a drive away to Terni and then a train ride to the city centre. The facilities were modern (dishwasher and washing machine) and every bedroom had its own connected or associated shower/bath room. The house had two excellent areas to eat al-fresco; one of which had a stone barbecue for use. The property was clean and extremely well maintained and is clearly adored by its owners in keeping it modern for visitors but also within their family traditions. The local restaurants were superb and we would definitely recommend the local speciality truffles and the variety of meats. We undertook a pasta making and wine tasting session during our stay led by our hosts which was a fascinating insight to traditional pasta making and how simple ingredients led to an excellent Umbrian meal - it was a real delight to eat the meal that we created and absorb the passion for Umbrian traditions. We would thoroughly recommend this holiday home to anyone who wants to be slightly off the beaten track but have all the facilities of home at their disposal. We loved our stay.
Fantastic restore farmhouse in the heart of Umbria
The property is excellent. It is beautifully restored and kept. The farmhouse is ideally located just outside the hill town of Todi with lots of food and attractions around. The eating spaces out side are well laid out with lots of options. The inside of the property is well appointed and homely. The setting with the Olive trees around it and the views are stunning. Alessandra and Leonardo offer various pasta making and wine tasking experiences. They are both warm and friendly and their hospitality is excellent. The pool is very well maintained.
All 7 of us, 4 adults and 3 children had plenty of room in the house and the facilities we excellent.
I would have no issue staying there again and recommending the property to others.
