VILLA ROSASPINA FROM 1700'S. PRIVATE POOL, AIR-CONDITIONING, JACUZZI, DSL/WI-FI

Todi Villa Rental Photos and Description

Ideal Hideaway, privacy, stunning views, between Florence and Rome

Villa Rosaspina is a traditional old oak-beamed Umbrian stone villa dating from the early 1700s. 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. Surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and its own woodland with centuries-old oak trees is a perfect place for those who love privacy. From the windows you can admire the view of the stream flowing through the valley below. This villa comes with its own private 12x6m pool, set in magnificent rural surroundings for your exclusive use. You can sit under the gazebo by the pool and share the day’s discoveries with your friends via the villa’s DSL/Wi-Fi. The air conditioning in the bedrooms and the anatomical latex mattresses will keep you cool. The warm-welcoming atmosphere created by traditional materials and furnishings, beautiful antiques and paintings, will make this a truly relaxing holiday.

INTERIORS & GROUNDS: A spacious air-conditioned sitting room with fireplace has large glass door leading to the lawn. A glass door also leads from the kitchen out to a shady dining veranda with a stone BBQ, which lends itself to long al fresco meals with unforgettable views over the Umbrian hills. A terraced garden with lawns, fruit trees and rockeries surrounds the house and leads up to the pool area, set 25m/80 feet from the house. The broad lawn with oleanders leads down towards a paved terracotta terrace with a private large swimming pool, 6x12m/20x40 feet, loungers for sunbathing and a gazebo for reading or siestas in the shade.

GROUND FLOOR: Fully equipped kitchen with dining table, sitting room with fireplace, both of which air-conditioned & with mosquito nets. One double air-conditioned bedroom (which can be converted into a twin-bedded room) & ensuite bathroom with shower suitable for disabled guests. FIRST FLOOR: 3 double air-con bedrooms with ensuite bathroom (1 has a Jacuzzi bath + shower).

TODI : 5 miles away from the villa, is the old town of Todi, 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 atmospheric medieval environment. Picturesque winding streets, stone buildings, medieval wells, arches, sudden ascents and descents that create various perspectives and dramatic views of faraway valleys, hills and mountains all contribute to Todi's unique appeal.

TODI ATTRACTIONS: In the centre of town is the long rectangular Piazza del Popolo, 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 cent. civic buildings and the 11th-12th cent. Duomo. The Temple of S.M. della Consolazione (16th-17th cent), 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 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-renowned Umbrian cuisine in traditional restaurants & food shops: truffles, wines, olive oils.

COMMENTS FROM OWNER GUESTBOOK

Well what a marvellous place, the villa and pool were fantastic. The local towns were very pretty, each in such different ways. The scenery was truly breathtaking, there is just so much to see and do. An absolutely perfect base for our travels, thanks for your advice. Although at the end of our touring we could never wait to return to the villa and its cosy atmosphere. That was only when we could drag ourselves away in first place. We really enjoyed your friendly hospitality. The villa was perfectly private and secluded and the pool was always immaculate just ready for a dive in!- *Annette and Dominic (UK)*---
WE have had a wonderful 2 weeks in Rosaspina, the pool was wonderful, peaceful and never have we heard crickets like these! We've had wonderful meals in the restaurants in Todi and here at the house: Monina's cooking for Sarah's birthday made it perfect. Truly a place to recharge the batteries. You have created a very special place Bruno.-*The Hammond family (Hertfordshire, UK)*

DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED

  • 5 of 5
Our group of eight stayed for a week in June 2014. We were entirely content. The villa is in a quiet location, yet within an hour's drive of lots of interesting places. Bruno and his daughter Rosa are excellent hosts, providing an occasional pleasant surprise. The four bedrooms are roomy. The pool is great.

There is an EMI supermarket at the Todi/Orvieto exit, ten minutes away. The kitchen is well-equipped, but at least when we arrived there were no kitchen basics (e.g., salt, sugar, etc.). We surveyed the kitchen before heading off to EMI, which you might want to do as well.

One of the four bedrooms is on the main floor, thus handicapped accessible.

A PEACEFUL RETREAT NEAR TODI

  • 5 of 5
We had a very pleasant stay on Bruno's "little estate" (there are three houses in close proximity, two of them for rent, with Bruno in the third). The stone house is well equipped and the pool is excellent - shallow throughout so ideal for pool games. Bruno is a charming man, and was very helpful, though discrete. There are no nearby shops or cafes but Todi is 10 to 15 mins away. The area is peaceful with lots of birdlife and a lovely walk with views across to Todi (though none from the house). I warmly recommend this house. The Figes family and friends.

AN AMAZING HOLIDAY DESTINATION!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at Villa Rosaspina for a week, and the only problem was that we wished we could have stayed longer! The house is spacious and well laid out - we were 4 adults and 4 kids (4-7) - with a great outdoor eating area, a great view of the valley and a wonderful pool. Rosaspina is secluded without being remote, and only a 10minute drive to Todi and an easy drive to regional attractions. Bruno was a perfect host and I would highly recommend Rosaspina as a base for exploring Umbria and/or for a relaxing holiday.

STUNNING LOCATION FOR A RELAXING BREAK

  • 5 of 5
Villa Rosaspina is a stunning, peaceful location for a relaxing break. The description and photos are accurate, and all facilities were excellent and well maintained. It is perfect for 2 families with young children, or for 4 couples. It was close enough to visit nearby towns, but the villa and pool is so lovely you may not stray far. The pool is slightly away from the house which worked well with young children from a safety perspective, and ensured quiet siesta time for those not swimming. The owner was very helpful and provided good recommendations for restaurants etc. The house was serviced twice during the week, and the owner's daughter cooked us a lovely meal (highly recommended). Our only regret is that we were unable to stay longer. Highly recommended.

ALL THAT THE DESCRIPTION SAYS

  • 5 of 5
This is a fabulous property--comfortable, well equipped, great location very helpful owner/manager. A gorgeous pool, impeccably kept. Magnificent flowers all around. Who could ask for more? It is all that the description says and more. I have rented many villas in Europe and this one is a star. The location is terrific--Todi is a charming town, about a 15 minute drive. Ideally situated for day trips to Orvieto, Assisi, Perugia, Spoleto and more. I recommend this property with enthusiasm. We also recommend the in-home "welcome dinner" if it is available.
