About this listing

Torre Gentile is a hamlet about five kilometers south of one of Italy's most beautiful hill towns, Todi. The map places it incorrectly in another position.

The space

This airy three-room stone house, like its medieval neighbor The Poet’s Place, has been home to numerous writers and artists. Just 50 meters below the church, it sits on the main road of a tiny farming village of authentic charm. Its large rooftop terrace offers splendid views of Todi and the Umbrian hills, where hikers can discover Roman roads and crumbling castles, spectacular flora and luxurious villas.

Barry is a great host ! This was a last minute booking request and he was immediately responsive to our questions and help with directions. After we booked he did everything he could to make our stay comfortable, including an invitation to a wonderful breakfast of coffee, pastry, and conversation. The location is convenient to Todi in a quiet village. As others have said, the rooftop view is spectacular. The middle floor living room area is spacious, airy and comfortable. Downstairs is the bedroom, bathroom and kitchen, which is a little small, but totally functional, and the bed is super comfortable. We would definitely stay there again. Thank you, Barry !

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the annex. The location is out of the way and quiet without being too out of the way. While the inside of the home is great on it's own, the true star is the rooftop terrace. Day or night, the views are spectacular. Do yourself a solid and have a quiet dinner there at least one night during your stay. Barry is a fantastic host. He will answer any question you may have. We took advantage of his local knowledge on several occasions.

Our stay in Torregentile was simply amazing. The house was just as beautiful and rustic as we had imagined and the views where just breathtaking. Barry, the owner of the house was a truly fantastic host. He was so helpful and it felt like he really wanted us to have the best vacation possible. The areas around Todi was beautiful and there's so much to discover. There are lots of great restaurants and places to discover. I can't stop thinking about the view. It even made me ask my girlfriend to marry me. She said yes btw! We simply had a great time!

I have no words to describe our experience in Torre Gentile / Todi / Kind Tower. I want to tell the world how amazing this place is and at the same time, I want to keep it our little secret. To say this experience is life changing is not an understatement. We loved it so much that we ended up staying 2 extra days! Trust us - you will not be disappointed in the views, the adorable Poet's Annex, and the attention that the host(s) provide. Umbria as a whole is under-appreciated and I am so happy we took a chance on Barry and The Poet's Annex! Thanks, Barry! If I could give 10 stars, I would.

Our host Barry was wonderful. When we arrived, he made us feel welcome in his home with a glass of red wine. His home is perfectly simple and prepared for guests. Some basics in the fridge, a few bottles of wine and a cellphone for us to use whilst staying at his place. A great little collection of travel books and other books for reading whilst staying at his place, which really helped us slow down and enjoy our stay. The home was beautiful and tastefully decorated. The village was very quiet and out of the way. Perfect if you want to really unwind but not far enough away for day trips out. We fell a little bit in love with Italy, Umbria and the Italian way of life and staying at Barrys home was the perfect end to a wonderful holiday.

It's not good to go into a situation with high expectations. We did. After the amazing photos and the comfortable correspondence we had with Barry, how could we not? Poets Corner didn't disappoint - in fact it exceeded our expectations. We planned to stay for 4 nights to relax and unwind mid-way through our 4 weeks in Italy - we couldn't have chosen a better place. I tried to pass my time by reading and only got through a couple of pages - which I will have to read again because the view demanded my focus. Describing it as magical would not do the view justice. We felt so at home here we didn't really want to leave. We couldn't speak more highly of the house and we didn't even wait until we left before we started talking about returning. Do yourself a favour and stay at Poets Corner! Molto grazie Barry!
