Todi Villa Rental Photos and Description

Privacy,Stunning Views to the River Tiber Valley Below,between Florence and Rome

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 & 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. The villa's interior is airy and spacious,its large windows with typical arches let in plenty of light and provide spectacular views.Its wooden floors and pastel-coloured rooms with handcrafted furniture and some beautiful paintings create a warm atmosphere of relaxation and well-being. Air conditioning throughout the whole house and anatomical latex mattresses will keep you cool.You can enjoy a meal on the spacious veranda which overlooks pool and gardens or just revitalize yourself in the Whirlpool area of the Swimming Pool and then send photos of the sun setting to your friends via the villa’s Wi-Fi

You can enjoy long al fresco meals on the Spacious Veranda(12m x3m) which overlooks the private pool & the beautifully tended gardens.Broad lawn full of roses, perfumed by lavender & rosemary bushes, surrounds the house and leads down towards a paved terracotta terrace with an alluring Pool with Whirlpool area, where loungers beckon to sunbathers & you can sit with your laptop & send photos of the sun setting behind the hills to your friends via the villa’s Wi-Fi.

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

WE enjoyed our stay at this beautiful Italian villa in the hills of 'heart of Italy.' The accommodations were spectacular and the serenity was great. Monina and Bruno Bucci were the perfect hosts. We had the best time and look forward to returning. The people of Italy were so friendly and the walled cities around Todi were magnificent. If you want a great vacation this is the place to stay.*Robert Dorsa (Las Vegas, NV USA)*
TWO weeks of sunflower glory: starting from one bloom on the first day, the holiday, with the field behind, just grew in beauty. We have so enjoyed such a beautiful house, a gorgeous setting, and our trips - to Todi, Orvieto, Assisi, Gubbio, Spoleto, Montepulciano...a very special time. We'll remember your kindness + generosity, the tranquility-and chasing balls round+round the pool! Many thanks for the use & this home full & warmth + life, and for the glorious nodding heads which greeted us each morning.* Roderick & Patricia- Hug & Bridget Watkins (UK)*

WONDERFUL VILLA IN A BEAUTIFUL SETTING

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 7 (family of four + 3 guests) had a truly wonderful stay at Villa L'Arco. The home is impeccably furnished, spacious and very comfortable.

The common areas are terrific (veranda, living room with satellite TV, swimming pool/deck) and the kitchen was well-equipped.

The very accommodating owner, Bruno, is around if/when you need him and the lovely Rosa comes by to clean the pool and to check if you need anything.

As has been stated by others, this Umbrian villa is very well-situated for day trips. We visited Orvieto, Gubbio (outdoor market on Tuesday mornings), Assisi, Viterbo (don't miss the spectacular gardens at nearby Villa Lante), Montefalco, and even Siena (in Tuscany).

Restaurants in Todi are somewhat hit-or-miss. We enjoyed Antica Hosteria de la Valle and Pane e Vino, and highly suggest that you dine at Tenuta di Canonica, the lovely inn at the top of the road.

Bravo, Bruno!

CHARMING VILLA

  • 5 of 5
This is a truly wonderful villa. Set in beautiful surroundings, with charming owners Bruno and his daughter Rosa, this really is an excellent villa for a holiday. We made the mistake of not taking Rosa up on cooking dinner until the last night, something we regretted not having done sooner - it was delicious.

The house is great, the pool lovely and the surrounding area is stunning. Perfect for a family or two families with young children. We definitely hope to return and have already recommended it to other friends. So continues our love for Italy.

STYLISH HOUSE IN A COUNTRY SETTING!

  • 4 of 5
Stylistic, very clean home with great décor and personal touches that really enhanced our stay. The view is amazing and the ambience very relaxing as the house sits off a country road. We really enjoyed our outdoor family dinners sitting on the veranda, sipping wine and eating Rosa’s delicious homemade dinners. Highly recommend the ‘arrival night’ meal as it makes for a very relaxing start to a vacation given the nearest supermarket is ~20 min away. Centrally located to Assisi and Perugia (must-see’s) - and near one of the ‘best small towns to live in’ (Todi) - we really enjoyed being far enough away from the big towns, but close enough to everything we needed. After a little warming up to, we appreciated Bruno who took the time to mount a toddler swing on the swing set – the children loved the play structure and the pool. The only issue we experienced with the house was very little water pressure, making it impossible to take more than 1 shower/bath at a time. This was further complicated because we were 2 families with a total of 10 people. Bruno responded immediately to our request to find out what was wrong with the pressure, but was unable to resolve the issue during our stay, but will surely be able to fix it with more time. Overall, I would definitely recommend the house!

Owner's Response: I thank really much the guest for his accurate description, that confirms what is reported in my own website.
I can add to the nice description that in September we improved the wellbeing experience in the veranda with a new relaxing corner furnished with sofas; at same time we completely renewed the dining corner in the veranda with a stylish table and more comfortable armchairs.

About the little water pressure, it's true, during their stay it was a decrease in the pressure.
At moment I could not fix it, because everything was in order in the water system of the villa and could not imagine the reason of the problem.
Later I called the service of the municipal aqueduct for a checking of their pipeline.
The service found a progressive clogging in the filtration system of the municipal aqueduct, which had reduced slowly the water flow. After that they fixed the problem and the water now flows with the right pressure.

A DELIGHTFUL VILLA NEAR TODI

  • 5 of 5
A lovely villa in beautiful countryside with stunning views. Bruno and Rosa are good hosts unobtrusive but always available if required. We asked for a meal on our first night as we were arriving at the end of the day; we were totally blown away by how good the food was. Rosa is a marvellous cook who prepared a typical Umbrian meal with local ingredients it is well worth having one of her meals; much better value than a restaurant meal. Despite mixed weather we were able to enjoy many trips to ,inter alia, Rome, Assisi, Orvieto and Perugia all of them within easy distance (except Rome). Careful planning over parking, using the town maps provided, pays dividends as most places have car parks with escalators/lifts to the town centre. We took the train from Orte when we went to Rome and it worked well. All in all a very good experience which we can recommend to anyone. We have often taken villa holidays and found Bruno and Rosa very fair in all their dealings with us.

L'ARCO "OUR VILLA IN UMBRIA"

L'Arco "Our Villa in Umbria"
  • 4 of 5
Villa L’Arco is a beautiful well-kept villa in the hills of Umbria. It is approximately 25 miles east of the Orvieto train station and a short distance from the town of Todi. We found a vehicle to be a necessity. The villa will sleep nine (9) without a worry. There are three (3) bathrooms, two (2) with a shower and one (1) with a shower and bathtub. The kitchen is well equipped. The villa with its beautiful surroundings and spacious veranda will give you plenty of enjoyment and privacy. Unfortunately, at the time of our visit in early May, the weather was too cool to take advantage of the beautiful pool, perhaps next time. Our rental experience with the owner of L’Arco was exceptional, we found him to be very accommodating and his vast knowledge of the Umbria Region was helpful.
We would love to call Villa L’Arco “Our Villa in Umbria
