Susan's villa is amazing!!! I was there with my family ( we were 7 people!) for the Christmas Holidays and we had a wonderful experience. Thev illa is very clean, big, warm and has a spectacular view (when is not foggy!) the bedrooms are very spacious and the living room and the fireplace are perfect for chilling and hang out all together. The kitchen is very big and super equipped, perfect to cook for many people. The house has a lot of charm and it's located and the middle of a breathtaking view country side. It's very intimate and quite isolated but just 20 minutes drive for the charming town of Todi and the walking distance from the cute Middle Ages village of Sismano. Looking forward to come back in the summer to enjoy the pool! thank you Susan!

We stayed at Susan's house (Fondo Le Teglie) for almost a week in July 2012. The house is fantastic - quietly nestled among rolling hills, fully equipped with modern fixtures, abilty to accomodate babies (crib, highchair), plenty of amenities (pool, massages, garden, etc)... It was great. We particularly enjoyed visiting nearby areas of Todi and Orvetto and have having pizzas made by Dina. Susan was a proactive and very helpful host. Her attention to detail is great and we would actively look to stay at one of her properties next time we're back in Umbria.
