“We saved the best for last...”

Fabs' home high on a hillside above Todi was our fifth and final B&B stop and we discovered we had saved the best for last. Although we fully enjoyed the prior stops, his home created that ultimate setting that was romantic and comfortable with the feeling of being at home.

Fabs is an excellent host. He lives in Spain but is always available by email or phone. He is responsive and flexible and has strong communications skills. A friend lets you onto the property and shows you around the house.

The home is on the outskirts of the small hillside village of Canonica about 4 or 5 miles from Todi. It stands at the end of a long dirt driveway off a paved road. The house itself is a centuries old handsome stone structure but the interior has recently been modernized.

The rooms are spacious and comfortable and created a feeling of being at home right away. The old blends with the new throughout (most of the furnishings are new but Fabs left family heirlooms to remind us of the countryside setting). Everything we used was nicely functional. His photos are accurate. There is wi-fi that works very well.

There is a single neighbor about 100 yards away but otherwise his location is quite isolated. There is no grocery store, cafe or gasoline in Canonica (but Todi is a bustling little town) so you should plan accordingly.

The home sits on a large property. There is an old olive grove and a large tilled field but otherwise we were surrounded by the vast stillness of the heavily wooded hills. There are no street lights so it's pitch black at night. For us gentrified city folk it was simultaneously scary and romantic. We were simply in awe of the thick canopy of stars. That's a sight we never see in Los Angeles.

As I drove out on our way to Rome, my wife summed up our stay, "I want to come back to Fabs' castle."

Liked best: Blend of very old furnishings and keepsakes with modern conveniences
Liked least: We loved the beauty & location of the property but there are no conveniences (gas, groceries, eateries) nearby. This wasn't a big deal to us because we had a car and had planned to drive but it might be a disadvantage to someone less mobile.

“Intimacy and beauty in a natural state”
Reviewed August 12, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

I was looking for shining days, beautiful landscape, tasteful food, silence and intimacy. The house has it own personality, we have this open groud space to have dinner outside, and at night you can take your time to see the north pole star.... it was very relaxing ... I could desconect from outside and just apreciate the moment.... the vacation.... the present.
