Alessandra&Leonardo were excellent hosts and the villa very lovely. The communication was clear about keys and everything else. They were really welcoming and easy to talk to hosts. We were 10 and there were nice sleeping places and toilets for everybody, the kitchen and dining table got pretty crowded inside though. The kitchen was well equipped and the pool area nice. Because we were there at the end of season, there were minor problems with hot water, gates and slightly damp smell in one room. The speed of Internet connection varied a lot. The villa is located in a quiet village close to Todi and you can have nice walks around area of the villa.
Hi Petra and thank you for your feedback. It's important to us to offer our guests a perfect stay. Regarding your useful notes, I'd like just to underline that the hot water was perfectly working as the water heating was simply turned off when you arrived (our housekeeper forgot to turn it on). Leonardo has immediately solved it as soon as you told us, just turning it on. Our wi fi system (free of charge) has been set for supplying a domestic normal use of a family, giving that this is a real private house. We mention in our description that the house is perfect for max 8 adults guests (+2 children), although I was very happy to host other 2 adult friends of you (without any extra cost).
The second gate's remote control unit has not worked for some days because of the storm we had during your stay. The main gate remote control worked for all your stay and we also provided immediately another extra remote control unit to the other members of your group. As we explained you when you were here, this year we had an unusual and exceptional rainy season before and during a part of your stay that sometimes can cause some natural humidity in the countryside. We're happy that we have solved all the little (possible) issues immediately. Happy to be considered excellent hosts.
Thank you again for your feedback. Best, Alessandra
Allesandra and her brother Leonardo were there to greet us when we arrived, part of our party arrived earlier than expected and they were able to deal with this no problem. Instructions for the house were clear, and easy.
The house is big, clean and well furnished with everything that we needed. The beds are very comfortable, the rooms cool even in the full heat of the summer. Lots of different outside areas to sit, relax and eat. We were very happy having the run of such a great house and it's pool, fruit trees and olive groves. It was a pleasure to wake up every morningin this quiet location and take in the views and the sounds of the Umbrain countryside.
We did lots of walks along the country roads and visited many of the fabulous towns and churches that are in easy reach. Returning to Todi town frequently to make use of all the wonderful restaurant suggestions Allesandra left for us.
As stated in the description of the house it is 8kms from Todi in the countryside so a car is a must.
This countryhouse was the perfect place for a great holiday in Umbria. We were two families (4 adults and 7 kids) travelling together and we enjoyed all the space in and around the house. The pool is fantastic and the view stunning. The house is very much like what you see in the pictures. Very tasteful, clean and a great kitchen for cooking. The area around the countryhouse is beautiful and there are lots of places to visit.
Alessandra and Leonardo were the perfect hosts - very helpful and easy to get in contact with. They made a book for the house, were they wrote a lot of helpful information about places to go and places to eat ect. We used that a lot.
We will very much recommend this place to everyone who are looking for a great holiday in Umbria and we will definentely be back.
Belle maison à proximité des principales destination touristiques d'Ombrie, très pratique pour rayonner dans la région. Accueil très sympathique avec quantité de produits de première nécessité et régionaux ! Leonardo a été très disponible - tout en restant discret - et est une mine d'informations et d'(website hidden). Nous recommandons cette adresse et ces hôtes !
Great place to stay, really good accommodation and lovely gardens and pool. We had a fabulous time eating on the terrace out of the sun. Plenty of seats and loungers around the pool. The welcome pack was perfect, tea, coffee, jam butter and most importantly wine. Everything was comfortable and clean. Alessandra and Leonardo were very welcoming. It is very near to Todi on winding roads and fabulous views. Would certainly stay there again.

We had a lovely holiday in Todi with our daughter and son in law and three grandchildren . The farmhouse is large and comfortable with plenty of bathrooms and modern kitchen. We lived outside on the large balcony with fabulous views down the valley and across to Todi. The pool was a special favourite with the children ( and a couple of the adults) and hours were spent there as well as the beautiful garden and olive grove . The Umbrian countryside and hilltowns were within easy reach and with some creative driving we explored several of them. Thank you to Alexandra and Leonardo for making their marvellous family home available to us. We had the holiday of a lifetime.
