Interaction with Guests
We can answer to our guests within a few hours.
Todi is a picturesque medieval hill town in Umbria, surrounded by medieval, Roman and Etruscan walls. The central piazza, originally the Roman forum, has several magnificent medieval buildings. Sights are close together and there are good places to linger, enjoying the views or the ambiance. Todi or the surrounding countryside would make a peaceful base for visiting southern Umbria.
Todi has been classified as one of the best places in the world to live on the basis of its environment, housing and lifestyle. Cars can be parked at the foot of the town from where a funicular lift ascends to the centre in couple of minutes. The views are breathtaking and an extensive range of restaurants, shops, cultural and historical attractions are on hand.
Todi is in the southern part of the Umbria region, the region in the center of Italy. Like neighboring Tuscany, Umbria has a magnificent countryside, dotted with olive fields and hill towns but has fewer tourists. From Todi, it is easy to visit as a day trip nearby historical towns like Perugia (36km), Orvieto (38km), Spoleto (45km), Assisi (66km), Gubbio (90km), etc. Further away but still very accessible are Rome (136km), Florence (190km) and Siena (150km).
Pets are allowed. The house is no smoking but guests can smoke on the terrace. The house and the swimming pool are suitable for children.
The apartment was beautifully clean, with cotton bedlinen and a well stocked kitchen. The view out over the Umbrian countryside breathtaking and the pool gorgeous to swim in. There are countless medieval hill villages and towns to visit nearby, full of interesting things to see and delicious places to eat.
As others have said, the track to the house is a bit bumpy, but we found one wheel at a time in our very modest Ford Fiesta got us through the bumps unscathed!
We frequently had the pool to ourselves and found the peace of the place a real plus. There is a good supermarket just two km away.
Great appartement in a magnificent area.
The contact with Lubja is fast and you get good information about location and quick answers on questions.
The road to the appartement is rather bumpy.
The appartement is well equiped and well maintained. The only thing that can be useful is airco or a fan.
The pool is gorgeous and well maintained. Little children can't stand in it. There is also no fence around it but for us it didn't disturb. Investment in good pool chairs and umbrella is desirable.
Lovely place to stay !
Nice, clean, well located appartment, not far from Rome, good for those willing to explore Umbria or souther Toscano. All our expectations were met and swimming pool was just in time after a long day when its amost 40C outside. Strongly recommended.
Het appartement maakt deel uit van een huis waarin nog 5 gelijkaardige flats. Deze is de meest linkse boven als je vanaf het zwembad naar het huis kijkt. Het uitzicht is fantastisch, over de heuvels van Umbrie, en links zie je Todi op de heuvel liggen, echt heel mooi. Uitrusting in de flat zelf is ook prima, keuken heel uitgebreid, oven, vaatwasser en ruim voldoende en diverse keukengerei. In dezelfde ruimte is ook je zithoek die gezellig en smaakvol is ingericht. De supermarkt EMI is op minder dan 10' rijden in Ponterio.
Wat wij wel hebben gemist is degelijk materiaal om echt van het zwembad te kunnen genieten. Je hebt enkel een klein parasolletje en 2 ongemakkelijke laag bij de grond zitstoeltjes ter beschikking. Met temperaturen van 35° en meer en nergens schaduw is een dagje luieren bij het - overigens vrij grote - zwembad, althans voor ons, uitgesloten. Wij waren echter veel weg overdag, dus dat viel nog mee.
De ligging is uitstekend - centraal in Umbrie - om de streek te verkennen. Je zit er vlak bij de E45 en op minder dan een uurtje rijden van alle interessante plekken in Umbrie.
This was our second stay - this time with baby - and it was as lovely as the first time round, even in 30 something Celsius weather. The apartment's position allows a breeze to give respite from the heat, aided by frequent dips in the pool.
Ljuba kindly provided a cot, while we brought our own travel high chair and bath. The apartment is generally well equipped, though frequent tea drinkers may notice the lack of a kettle.
A fan would also be a worthwhile addition to handle a typical Italian summer ie there is no air con. The only other quibble would be that the dirt road from the main street needs maintenance. It has some steep sections and some significant irrigation furrows to negotiate.
But not to quibble too much. Did i mention the views, sweeping towards Todi which at times seemed to hover on low cloud. Aah!
And the location is excellent for exploring Umbria in general. Most significant tourist sites are no more than 35 min drive away.
I have a feeling we will be back.
Die Unterkunft ist einfach Klasse! Ruhige Lage, schöne Umgebung, alles sauber. Eindeutige Weiterempfehlung!
