Holiday Rental House
This is a fabulous house that dates back to the 13th century, as witnessed by a Romanesque lion's head still in the facade. It has been entirely renovated (with suggestions and designs by the great sculptor Beverly Pepper). It is inside the town walls, about 5 min. walk from the main square, so it is conveniently located in terms of shopping. I mean why come to Italy and isolate yourselves in a rural farmhouse? May as well stay in Palo Alto (they tell me the landscape is very similar). We wanted to enjoy living amongst the Italians and that is why we chose this house. And yet it is very private and quiet because it is flanked by the apse of the church of S. Prassede on the south-west side, and has a 1,200 sq.ft. garden in front.

All the windows have great views of the valley below and the Martani mountains directly east. Todi is smack in the center of Umbria, one of Italy's most beautiful and artistic regions, so you won't have to drive far to visit all the other wonderful hill towns. (It is much less touristy than neighboring Tuscany.) Todi has about 9,000 inhabitants, with very little industry and rolling hills and farm land all around. It is set on top of a hill, 480 meters above sea level, and is primarily medieval in its architectural make-up. Another good reason for being in town, apart from enjoying concerts at the theater, exhibitions, cocktails on the square, is the BEST ICE CREAM in the world (as verified by many of our guests). Yes, the Bar Pianegiani, a 10-min. walk up the street. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: TTGDRD51P28Z243LMore

Interaction with guests
We now spend most of our time in Florence, two hours drive north of Todi. But we have lovely people paid to meet our guests and, if requested, to pick them up at the airport and accompany them to the house.

Todi is the perfect town to explore Umbria. The town itself is very pleasant and has plenty going on. The house was very comfortable for five. We were able to use the kitchen for breakfasts and also a couple of dinners. Internet access was important...More

How to get there
The person who will meet you at the Bar 'da Mario' in Ponte Rio, at the foot of the Todi hill, is named Paulina. She speaks English. I would suggest you call her (or email me) a few days in advance to let her know more or less what time you will be arriving in Todi. (The drive is about 2 hours from Rome’s airport.) I will provide you with her numbers when you have booked. From Rome: Take the A1 Austostrada (highway) north in the direction of Firenze and Milano for 70 km. Exit at Orte and follow the signs for Perugia and Terni. 20 km from Orte (BEFORE reaching Terni) you must turn off and follow the signs for Perugia. 33 km from that turn off you will see the signs for Todi. Take the second Todi exit, marked also Ponte Rio.
