The villa and pool

Villa | 7 bedrooms | sleeps 14

Key Info
  • Swimming pool
  • Great for children of all ages 5
  • Car advised
  • No pets allowed
  • Private garden

This is a charming family villa only 7 km from fairytale Todi and just a little over an hour's drive from Rome airport. Set on the very edge of the tiny hamlet of Fiore, you are just a couple of minutes' walk from Fiore's excellent bar-trattoria “La Rosa dei Venti” - a great spot and open all hours. From an early morning coffee to an afternoon beer or a brimming bowl of pasta in the evening, they'll welcome you whatever the hour! The view from their panoramic terrace is almost as lovely as Villa Gelsomini's, so you can enjoy watching the sun go down by your pool or linger on their terrace for a meal after a busy day sightseeing. The bar is so close (and the area so safe!) the young will love being able to wander up the road to buy a coke and lounge on the terrace with the "local talent".

The lower floor of Villa Gelsomini sleeps up to 8 in stylish comfort as you can see from our photos. Add the optional upper floor to your booking, and hey presto you've got a fine villa sleeping up to 14. The upper floor is an optional extra available only if you are already booking the lower floor - your group's privacy (be it larger or smaller) is guaranteed, along with your exclusive use of the swimming pool.

Further details indoors

The villa has been refurbished in superlative good taste, using traditional Umbrian materials. You'll see there's even a pretty suite at one end of the lower floor accommodation. By simply closing the door in the corridor, those who occasionally need a quiet retreat, will be delighted with the comfort and privacy offered by their very own sitting room with dining area and kitchen! There are three kitchens in total at Villa Gelsomini, so even a large group will never feel under pressure when it's time for a cup of tea!

The Umbria region

There are endless wonderful sights to be seen from your villa. Orvieto, with its cathedral as fancy as a tiered wedding cake, its fascinating Etruscan museum, glorious art and local cantinas offering some of Umbria's best wines is a must. Perugia is Umbria's capital city and bursts with fine art, enticing shops and handsomely sophisticated bars. Both Orvieto and Perugia are within an hour's drive. Assisi (twinned with Jerusalem) is only a bit further away and is another absolute must for your sightseeing list! Saint Francis rests in the beautiful cathedral of this important hill town. Pilgrims from the entire world drop by to pray for peace in this imposing, but nevertheless homely feeling place. The splendid frescoes of Giotto and the three dimensional marquetry on the choir stalls are well worth seeing for those who have no wish to pray but who will still enjoy marveling at the soaring arches and cerulian blue ceilings decorated with golden stars. The southern Umbrian towns of Spoleto, Norcia (Umbria's “truffle capital”) and Amelia and Narni all make happy, easy day trips too.

Todi

You could spend a full week just getting to know Todi. It's said to have one of the finest piazzas in all Italy and is regularly voted one of the best places to live in the world. Villa Gelsomini is just 7 km outside Todi. As well as access up the E45 highway to explore the rest of Umbria, the location is brilliant for taking a train to Rome. (You don't want to drive into Rome!!)

"A wonderful, relaxing, Italian experience"

We've just come back from a week in Villa Gelsomini. On arrival we got a warm welcome and the villa was sparkling clean. The villa is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The outside space… More
