Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Villa L’Arco is a recently renovated typical Umbrian villa. Standing on the hills of Todi, in the Tiber valley natural park, it lies at the centre of one of Italy’s areas of greatest historical, artistic and cultural interest and outstanding natural beauty.
The villa is surrounded by olive-groves, vineyards and its own woodland with centuries-old oak trees and is a perfect place for those who love privacy. The villa’s interior is airy and spacious and its beautiful, large windows, with typical arches, let in plenty of sunlight and provide spectacular views of the hills of Todi from every room.
The property has been tastefully yet comfortably furnished with wooden handcrafted furniture and some beautiful paintings. Its wooden floors and pastel-coloured rooms create a warm atmosphere of relaxation and well-being, while air-conditioning throughout the whole house and anatomical latex mattresses (anti-allergenic) will keep you cool even at the height of summer. The spacious living room with a fireplace and the well-equipped kitchen have large glass doors leading to a vine-covered veranda which offers a shady spot for relaxing with tremendous views of rolling hills and distant villages.
You can enjoy long al fresco meals on the spacious veranda (35 m²), which overlooks the private swimming pool with hydro-massage area and the beautifully tended gardens.
Broad lawn full of roses, perfumed by the lavender and rosemary bushes, surrounds the house and leads down towards a paved terracotta terrace with an alluring swimming pool, where sun loungers await, beckoning to keen sunbathers.
Whilst relaxing by the pool, thanks to the Villa's Wi-Fi connection, you can use your laptop to send photos of the stunning views and beautiful sunsets to family and friends back at home, or if not, just kick back and relax, revitalising yourself in the whirlpool area of the swimming pool.

The Umbria region
Umbria: The Heart of Italy!
The Umbria region of Italy has been called "The Green Heart of Italy", due to its central location and equal distance from Rome and Florence. Umbria is a beautiful, unspoiled, countryside area of rolling, forested hills, vast grassy meadows covered with flowers, large olive grove plantations, and several lakes and valleys. The landscape is dotted with many picturesque medieval villages, and the people of the area are known for their distinctive cuisine, friendliness and hospitality. Food, wine, and entertainment are the core of Umbria's charm.
Founded by the Umbrians (some cite the date 2700 BC). Situated in ancient times on the border between the Etruscan and Umbrian territories, not far from Rome and Florence, Todi has been defined as the most livable town on earth, the "ideal town", by research of the University of Kentucky for its size, its climate, its hilltop location and for its harmonious relationship to its surroundings.
A striking artistic centre in a magnificent position dominating the Tiber valley, celebrated for its Roman and Etruscan remains, for its palaces, its churches and its suggestive medieval environment. Picturesque winding streets, stone buildings, medieval wells, arches, sudden ascents and descents that create various prospective and sudden views of faraway valleys, hills and mountains all contribute to Todi's unique fascination.
In the centre of town is the long rectangular Piazza del Popolo, considered to be one of the most beautiful squares in Italy, onto which face the Palazzo dei Priori, Palazzo del Popolo and Palazzo del Capitano all originally 13th c. civic buildings still used as such today, and the 11th-12th c. Duomo. The Temple of S. Maria della Comsolazione (16th-17th c), built to a plan by Bramante is one of Italy’s finest Renaissance Churches. The newly restored Museo Civico e Pinacoteca houses important pieces ranging from rare Etruscan coins to 16th c. Italian paintings.
In Todi one can find many cultural events and exhibitions. The annual Todi Festival hosts avant-garde music, dance and film productions. An antiques fair takes place every spring. Many celebrated artists and artisans of the whole world live and have their studios in Todi. The town is rich in art galleries, craft-shops (ceramic,carving,), antiques dealers and restorers. You can enjoy the world-renown Umbrian cusine in many characteristic restaurants (some of the most famous in Italy) and tipycal food shops: truffles, olive oils, wines
