CHARMING MEDIEVAL TOWNHOUSE WITH BREATHTAKING VIEWS

Todi Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

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.

Floor Details: The first floor has a formal living-room with lovely 19th-century antiques, 2 bedrooms with 1 double and 1 single bed, connected by a full bathroom. Both bedrooms have fine views.

The second floor has a dining-room with table for six, leading onto a balcony, with beautiful views over the hills to the south and the Tempio della Consolazione church, fully equipped kitchen open to the dining-room on one side and a sitting-room on the other, sitting-room with sofabed, and a single bedroom with half bath.

Everything AND a view!

  • 5 of 5
Came to Todi with a girl friend and stayed here for two weeks. Very comfortable, with all the things I look for in a holiday apartment: pleasant bathroom with good lighting over the mirror, power outlet for hair dryer near mirror, towels and sheets that are no where near their use by date, bedside lamps that one can read by, a workable and well equipped kitchen, including good kitchen knives and wine glasses, and a washing machine. Close to town centre and amenities but not to busy roads. La Gardenia has all this and a VIEW to die for from the balcony, and even from the upstairs 'loo' .
Carlo, the owner met us as arranged at the famous Tempio, and escorted us to the apartment, and kindly assisted us with getting our luggage upstairs. He gave us comprehensive explanations and instructions for all aspects of the apartment, parking information and sight seeing tips.
I made the booking on line and this was all completed efficiently and effectively. I hope to return to Todi again, with my husband, and stay at La Gardenia.

Perfect place to stay in Umbria

  • 5 of 5
We spent 4 nights in this beautiful apartment in Todi. Large, clean and with all the amenities. Wonderful views of the Umbrian hills and a small balcony for sipping the Novello and watching the sunset over the Santa Maria della Consolazione church. The apartment is five minutes walk uphill from the parking lot (easy parking) and another five to the main square (still uphill - it is a hilltown after all). Carlo, our host, was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Todi is a beautiful hilltown and perfectly located for exploring Umbria and he was more than willing to help.

Wonderful week in Todi

  • 5 of 5
Todi is a marvellous medieval Umbrian hill town and staying at the La Gardenia appartment made it very special. La Gardenia is within easy walking distance from the town square's cafes, shops and historic buildings. It really is like going back in time. The appartment interior is comfortable, well equipped and has fantastic views from its balcony. Some upgrading is planned for winter 2011-12 and this would in my opinion give it a 5 star rating. It is worth while saying that La Gardenia is not for anyone with mobility difficulties and you are in a medieval building! Carlo is a wonderful host and we would not hesitate to make a return visit.

Than Todi is the place for you. We were looking to live like the Italians for the summer and we rented this townhouse for almost 6 weeks in the summer and can't imagine doing it any other way. Carlo was very helpful, picking us up from the Train and bus stops and was a great help. His English was very clear, although he always apologizes for his bad English. We were all impressed.
There are many steps up to the apartment, but it was totally worth it once we saw the view. Sitting in bed in the master bedroom, you can look out 2 windows with perfect views of two beautiful churches. My photographs don't do justice to what we looked at every night.
I travelled with a 2 year old and I never felt like we weren't safe in the town or the apartment. He even provided us with a crib for her, which was perfect.
The food was beyond amazing and my toddler even ate raw vegetables daily...something we can't get her to do here in Canada. There was a little tiny ,market at the end of the street and Cinzia who runs it, was beyond helpful. If I needed something, she tried her best to help and her produce was so fresh. One day I needed fresh basil, and she was out. She told me to come back in a couple of hours, and sure enogh, I got fresh basil, picked fresh out of a garden nearby.
Months later, I still miss the daily trips to get our Latte Macchiato's and gelato's and hang out at the highest point in Todi, where there is also a park. We found a public pool which was a short bus ride to the bottom of the hill (we tried to walk thinking it didn't look too far from our balcony. it was a lot further than we anticipated, but an adventure nonetheless) :)
The kitchen in the apartment was small but equipped with everything we needed although, the restaurants were so good, we ended up eating out a lot. My mouth still waters for the Bruschetta and pizza.
We didn't have a car, but managed to figure out the train schedule which was good for us, although if you want to take a day trip to places other than Perugia or Terni, you really need to plan to stay over night as the regional train line doesn't run past 7:00pm.
A few friends of ours came throughout the 6 weeks, and we all agree, that we would go back there in a second. Carlo was amazing and the apartment was very spacious. We will definitely go back at some point, hopefully soon! Thanks Carlo for a perfect Italian vacation.

Top Experience in Todi

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment and although there are many steps in Todi but the great views are worth the effort. Typically narrow streets limit vehicle access but Carlo was very helpful; met us and took us to the apartment from the car park just outside the city wall and delivered us together with luggage to our car after the stay. There are many interesting day trips possible from Todi and a great place to relax and enjoy the Umbrian experience. No problem finding things to do in staying for a week.
