Villanova - (Sleeps 10)

Villanova is a stunning stone villa that sits on a promontory once the site of a 12th century village. It boasts a picture postcard view of Todi- one of Umbria's premier hilltop towns- which is framed by a pair of giant oaks. The garden is laced with the remnants of medieval walls and a tower where roses and clematis climb. Villanova was lovingly restored and furnished by its current owner and the project was overseen by a well-known Italian architect whose work in the area has been featured in "Architectural Digest" and other publications; the house is featured prominently in the book Restoring a Home in Italy. The house has also received rave reviews as one of the architect's best works in a well-known American design blog called Willow Decor.

INTERIOR: The house is decorated with English and French antiques and Oriental rugs: the emphasis is on style and comfort. There are terracotta floors and high wood-beamed ceilings and original art. The spacious kitchen is the house's focal point: its raised fireplace warms the kitchen on a cold evening. Our treasured housekeeper will always put a smile on your face with her gracious hospitality. She is happy to cook delicious country meals for guests upon request.

LAYOUT: Villanova can comfortably sleep ten people. The villa has an uncomplicated yet flexible layout so it is perfect for two families and even additional overnight guests. It is also ideal for a romantic retreat.

Bedrooms: There are four bedrooms upstairs: one master bedroom suite, two doubles and a room with two single beds. Downstairs there is a guest suite, which comprises a sumptuous bedroom with an en suite bathroom plus an adjacent sitting room/bedroom with two daybeds and a fold out sofa bed.

Bathrooms: 3 1/2 total; two of these bathrooms are en suite, one upstairs and one downstairs. The two double bedrooms upstairs share an ample bathroom and there is an additional powder room downstairs.

The Umbria region

UNSPOILED: Todi lies in the green heartland of Umbria, Italy's only landlocked region and one of its most charming. Todi has been hailed as Italy's most livable town due to the beauty of its setting and the authenticity of its culture and cuisine. Umbria is a region that still feels relatively untouched by the flocks of foreign tourists drawn to its better known neighbor, Tuscany. Todi is still largely inhabited and run by the Italians who grew up there. The surrounding countryside- though dotted with splendidly restored villas and castles- is still tended mostly by families who have tilled the soil and looked after their olive groves and vineyards for generations.

SIGHTS AND FESTIVALS: Many of the region's architectural and artistic highlights are in Assisi, Perugia, Orvieto and Spoleto and Spello, all an easy drive from our house. Most towns are reachable by car within an hour or less. In many towns you will find Romanesque or medieval churches tucked away inside a meandering warren of cobbled streets that spill down hillsides; you will discover frescoes, oil paintings and art treasures that rank with Italy's finest. In each town you can enjoy locally produced fine food and wine before setting out to visit the sights. You can duck into local craft or wine shops, or enjoy a panoramic view of swathes of sunflowers in the warmer months. Music and dance is celebrated at world famous outdoor summer festivals: there is Umbria Jazz in Perugia and The Festival of Two Worlds in Spoleto. There is yet more jazz played live in Orvieto in December. You can visit the wine museum near the vineyards of Torgiano and buy hand-painted ceramics at any number of shops in nearby Deruta. You can savor the celebrated red wines of Montefalco and buy the richly textured Umbrian traditional linens availalble at several shops Todi itself.


Villanova is near the tiny hamlet of Torregentile, just 7 km south of Todi in the Umbrian countryside. Todi is ideally situated in the heart of the rolling hills of Umbria, which are covered with olive groves, fields of nodding sunflowers and vineyards. It is equidistant from many of Umbria's famous hilltowns (Assisi, Spoleto, Orvieto, Deruta and Perugia) and is very conveniently situated for touring the region. It is an easy one hour 45 minute drive from Rome airports. Ryanair flies from Stansted to Perugia, which is an easy 35 minute drive to our house.

"Charming and elegant stay in an amazing setting"

The house and location were exactly what we were hoping for. Our party of 10 was very comfortable in the spacious house, and we enjoyed the yard and pool tremendously. Views are amazing. The location is remote, but trips to many hill towns are very manageable. The style and comfort of the home is exceptional.
