This apartment is included in a 3-story Roman and Medieval house that hosts only 2 apartments in total and which is set back from the street in a small nice courtyard, a five-minute walk to Todi’s main square, with its 12th century cathedral, town hall, clustering of outdoor cafes and frequent cultural events. All of Umbria stretches out below you from the windows. Owned by an Italian painter in early 20th century who decorated the ceilings of the majestic buildings in the square and then by a great Pulitzer-prize poet, the apartment still keeps the charm of the Roman and Medieval times: the nice large outdoor landing in front of the main door where you can sit and enjoy the view of a typical Medieval street and courtyard, the old arches, vaults and Roman well in the basement, the imposing century-old wooden beams and terracotta tiles of the ceilings and floors. People love the apartment not only for its charm but also for its privacy while being so close to the square. The apartment and the whole house were restored in 2006 by retrieving all original materials, such as terracotta tiles on the floors, massive wooden beams on the ceilings, stone walls, stone fireplaces

Famous for: Perugia chocolate (“Baci Perugina”), jazz festivals, cuisine (simple genuine cuisine based on truffles, porcini mushrooms, asparagus, cicoria, hand-made pasta, roast game), wines (Umbria produces Italian wines of excellent quality non only thanks to a natural predisposition of its lands but also thanks to the handicraft it has in the cultivation of vineyards and wine harvest acquired along the times by its producers. Among the best Italian red wines we surely find: the Rosso of Torgiano, the Rosso of Montefalco and the Rosso of the Colli Amerino. Moreover, we should mention the Sagrantino of Montefalco that is without any doubt a protagonist of the not only Italian but worldwide gastronomic and wine scene.
