Casa Gelsomino, a farmhouse in Umbria, sits high on a hillside with magnificent views towards Todi and its duomo. Aptly named after the profusion of Jasmine flowering around the house in Spring and early Summer this house is truly out of this world. The property is a recently restored 400-year old farmhouse, complete with traditional exposed beams and hand cut terracotta brick floors. A key feature is the beautiful large terraced garden filled with herbs, fruit trees, olives, and even a well-stocked vegetable garden for the clients' own use. Escape from the heat to the well decorated comfortable cool interiors and you'll feel relaxed and at ease immediately. The peace and tranquillity behind the pretty green shutters soothes and helps you to unwind from the pace of modern life.

Past clients adored the large pool set just below the villa, which provides wonderful views and catches the sun all day long. Just above the pool, with doors opening out from the dining room, is the terrace; a superb vine covered pergola that is the perfect place to sit, play cards, enjoy a glass or two of Orvieto Classico or just watch the spectacular sunsets over the Umbrian hills. For clients who like seclusion, but still want to be within easy reach of all the major towns in the region, Casa Gelsomino is an excellent choice.

Ancient walled Todi is an impressive hilltop border town made famous by its palazzos, cathedral and central Piazza; one of the most picturesque in Italy and is often used as a movie set.

Local distances: Just 5 km from the hamlet of Canonica (no shops), and only 12 km from Todi, there is a wide variety of shops and restaurants within a very short drive. Perugia 42 km, Orvieto 32 km, Assisi 54 km, Bolsena (lake and fish restaurants) 49 km, Bagnoregio 36 km, Deruta (ceramics) 28 km.

About this location

The Umbria region

Anyone visiting one of our villas in Umbria, in the green heart of Italy, will be captivated by the beauty of its lush countryside and abundance of medieval towns and villages perched on gently rolling hills.

Umbria's central location, peace, rural simplicity, history, art and culture are some of the many reasons why our villas in Umbria remain so popular.

Whether you regularly choose Umbria or are travelling to Umbria for the first time, there is plenty to occupy your time in Italy's best kept secret. For those who want the mix of culture, history, and modern shopping that Florence offers, but like to avoid the high prices and oppressive heat of the city-centre in summer, Perugia, Amelia, Terni and Foligno are excellent alternatives.

Perugia has everything a shopaholic could wish for (including the Perugina chocolate outlet shop!), all set on a hilltop in Etruscan surroundings. It also has the only external escalators in Italy as the hills were so steep and it made more sense to have them. Assisi is a centre for pilgrimage the world over and is a few short miles south of Perugia and well worth a trip.

Although the region is extremely rural, there are many luxury villas in Umbria, all with pools. In fact many of the Villas in Umbria are second homes with the owners also living there outside the main holiday season which often helps to add charm and charater to our properties.

Similar to Tuscany, each of the Umbrian hill top towns basks in the sun, the gently rolling hills flower with poppies, vetch and wild thyme in May, fields burst with sunflowers in June, olive groves dot the hillsides and even one or two vineyards add a note of colour in the southern areas. Try the Sagrantino di Montefalco as it is unique, the vines won't grow anywhere else.

Passito a type of sweet red desert wine is also made across Umbria but the more famous whites from Orvieto and full bodied reds from Torgiano also hit the spot. A tip? Try the red wine from the Fanini estate near Petrignano del Lago as it is a Montepulciano so called “Super Tuscan” but can't be called that because the Cantina is in Umbria even if 90% of the vines aren't.
