La Gardenia is a traditional stone-built house, dating from the Middle Ages. It is located in the heart of Todi, voted the most livable town on earth and the setting for the classic 1965 film The Agony and the Ecstasy.

Situated on the upper 2 floors of the building, the apartment, which is recommended by Lonely Planet the Tuscany/Umbria edition, offers stunning views over rooftops, churches and town monuments. From the balcony, which is large enough for a small table and chairs, one can enjoy the clean air and the peacefulness of the surrounding hills. Furnishings range in style from the distinguished 19th-century tea room, to the early 20th-century, and are elegant and comfortable.

The owner is a native of Todi and can offer assistance in English with everything, from sightseeing to maid service on-request.

And included in this package is free one-day entry for two people to Roccafiore Spa and Resort, only 5 minutes by car from the apartment. At Roccafiore you'll enjoy access to a beautiful outdoor swimming pool with an incomparable view of Todi as well as to the indoor pool and Jacuzzi. A robe and slippers are provided for each guest, and luxury treatments include Turkish bath, steam bath, sauna, scented showers, Kneipp products, colour therapy and a quiet corner in which to relax with complimentary refreshments.

The Umbria region

Umbria, often called the 'green heart of Italy' is found in the centre of the country, and is a region of extraordinary beauty and spirituality, with a lush and gentle landscape of hills, mountains and lakes. Its towns, most of them situated atop hills -- Perugia (the capital), Assisi, Spoleto, Orvieto, Montefalco, Spello, Gubbio, Deruta and Bevagna -- are justly famous and all are within striking distance of La Gardenia in Todi.


Todi is equidistant between Rome and Florence.

For the sports-minded, there is good walking, swimming, hot-air balooning, cycling and golf. There are also fabulous museums, tiny historic theatres, jazz and blues festivals and local opera. Ther excellent local wines include the unique Sagrantino and the gourmet cuisine is based around local produce including truffles, olive oil, polenta and farro (or spelt).

La Gardenia in Todi: 2 wonderful weeks

We spent two wonderful weeks at La Gardenia in May, 2013, and this was one of our best vacations ever. The apartment is even better than we expected. It is spacious, well furnished with fully equipped kitchen and comfortable beds, and has a balcony with a fabulous view. You can easily walk to any shops in Todi, including places to buy great seafood and freshly made pasta. Parking was also convenient.

We took the train from Rome to Orvieto, where we rented a car. Todi is only a short drive from Orvieto, and Carlo met us upon our arrival as planned. He was most gracious in showing us around the apartment and giving us tips on places to go. The apartment has WiFi, which was very convenient for planning our outings in the surrounding towns, such as Assisi, Bolsena, and Deruta.

This was the first time we had rented an apartment, and everything was just like Carlo's description. We will return soon.
