The house is situated at the end of a private road surrounded by natures and fenced-in, ensuring maximum privacy. In front of the house, facing the valley, there is a large patio with a dining table. Next to the pool a loggia with comfortable garden furniture and barbecue creates the perfect outdoor dining area, a very special feature is the original pizza wood oven.

Views from the swimming pool are of the classic countryside, hillsides, forest and the ancient village of Collelungo, providing twinkling lights at night.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Mario,



I - and of course the rest of the family, inclusive Inga - want to thank you for the very nice time we spent at Pianesante, it was one of our best holidays in the last years.



The house was very nice and comfortable, the swimmingpool was so big we could have a real swim, the staff was nice and very helpful and most of all I loved the view from the terrace. Every day I hoped I was the first one to be awake, so I could sit outside and look at the different shades of grey of the hazy hills without anybody around to distract me with tea or talking.



And then I was very happy to see your work of art. After all, in a way we have been through a lot together, so I was very curious to see what's your deeper reason for living and what kind of artist you are.

We liked what we saw (especially the colours and movement in the photographs.

So there is but one conclusion: you succeeded completely in giving us the ultimate feeling of vacanza.

Pianesante dream

  • 5 of 5
Stayed in Villa Pianesante with 7 friends and couldn't have had a better time. Great views, awesome grounds, great staff and a ridiculous amount of space in the villa.

Mario helped us set up a few wine tours as well as a fantastic dinner in nearby Acqualoreto. He couldn't have been more accommodating!

Highly recommended place if you're into, you know, having an AWESOME time in Umbria.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at the lovely Villa Pianesante at the end of May. The most important thing to mention about our stay is the amazing hospitality and generousity of the owner Mario. We were 2 couples, 2 kids and 1 dog and we had originally booked our stay at the smaller Villa Cipresso, but Mario was generous enough to upgrade us to the huge Villa Pianesante because we were lucky to be the only guests that week. My husband and I are very interested in food and wine experiences and I bombarded Mario with emails and questions, both before and during our stay, and he always responded with excellent recommendations. He also arranged for us to receive a gift of delicous wild asparagus, just because they were in season and he wanted us to try them. This is just one small example of the incredible hospitality at Todi Castle, which is really what sets them apart from others.
We booked the private chef for several meals, including a lovely welcome dinner on the day of our arrival as well as a pizza party for the kids. The pizza party could perhaps have been more hands-on with the kids, but again I think it is really more a question of telling them what you want. Please make sure to book massages by the pool, a great experience. We were also invited to have one of the dinners booked with the chef at the castle, which was an amazing experience with the dinner served in a medieval tower with a huge fireplace and an armor in the corner - the kids loved it.
The villa itself is lovely, old, but modernised Italian style with a comfortable living room and lots and lots of space. It is huge. The kitchen could perhaps have been better equipped with some sharper knives and more bowls, but I think this is a common flaw in rental houses. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the house, considering the size. Everything was spotless.
The grounds and views are incredible. The house is surrounded not by a garden, but rather a park with olive trees and wooded areas - and the entire property was completely fenced in which was perfect for us because of the dog, which could roam freely. The pool was beautiful, if a bit cold at the end of May when the season was just getting started.
The villa is very private, but still centrally located for Umbria sightseeing and not too far from Todi, which is a lovely town. Make sure to have pizza one night at the pizzaria Rosa nearby, the best pizza I have ever had and homemade limoncello, wonderful.
We certainly hope to be back at Tod

Biggest villa of the estate!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a big come-together holiday with the family and this villa was just perfect! There was more than enough room for everybody, also to take some time for your own.
With the big swimming pool, great nature and incredible good pure Italian hospitality, this was a holiday that we'll never forget!
Thanks Mario and staff!!

Absolutely womderful! Hidden treasure!

  • 5 of 5
TodiCastle is Magical! I joined some friends at TodiCastle for a week and loved it. Mario, Sabrina, Katrina and the rest of the staff made it a week to remember. Villa Piesante is an unbelievable 5 bedroom 5 bathroom private villa with it's own pool and spectacular view of the neighboring towns. You know when you pull up you are going to love it, then walk in to find the complimentary welcome basket and it's time to sit down and watch the spectacular sunset. We had dinner in the small town of Fiore at Rosa dei Venti twice and I swear it was the best pizza I have ever had, the other dishes were excellent also. We took day trips to Assisi, Florence, Spoleto, Todi and one of my favorite cities in Italy, Orvieto. If you are looking for any kind of ceramics, Deruta is only 45 minutes away. While some couples flew into Rome and came directly, others visited other parts of Italy the week before then came to TodiCastle to relax. Our final night there Mario hosted a delicious dinner in this beautiful medieval room with a giant fireplace. Mario was kind enough to give us a tour of the castle and we were able to see some of the rooms that are decorated with antiques and family treasures from all over the world... it's like a museum! I am recommending it to anyone visiting Italy and will definitely return. Mi Piace TodiCastle!!!
