What makes this Apartment unique
The home is ideal to relax in the front patio, to enjoy the view of Umbrian hills from the bedroom terrace or to take leisurely walks to the wall and to the center of Todi. It is a fantastic base to visit Umbria, Tuscany, Rome, Latium, Florence, Siena and many other great locations.' Moreover it is a great location for day-trips to historic and artistic towns.

We loved our apartment just outside of Todi. It had everything we needed to cook in and was close to many restaurants in Todi if we chose to go out.
The apartment was very clean and comfortable and sat among olive and fig trees. The grounds were gorgeous as was the pool.
Adele was helpful with everything we needed.
Todi is close to the center of Umbria so it was very convenient to drive to the many wonderful towns and villages.
Il Gelso is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday in Umbria
We spent the most wonderful week at Il Gelso. The apartment was superb and everything that we could ever have needed was there inside. Two things made our holiday really special though: the outside space and Adele, the owner. The pool area really was amazing and we swam everyday - and most evenings too. The views were beautiful, out across the olive grove and to the mountains in the distance. It truly was such a peaceful place to read, relax and swim. Adele was so kind and courteous; she gave us great restaurant ideas and even booked a table for us one evening, but she was always so discreet too and let us just get on with enjoying our holiday.
Todi was a great base for sightseeing; there are so many lovely towns and villages within an hours drive. We did, however, think that Todi was the best of them all, and to be able to walk there (uphill!) to look at the shops, monuments and to just sit in a cafe and watch the world go by was such a pleasure.
I can only think of positive things to say about Il Gelso and Todi - going there for a week of relaxation was the perfect end to our holiday in Italy.

Perfect spot in the heart of Umbria
Having stayed in numerous properties throughout Italy I am happy to say this is one of the best. Adele is a great host and is more than happy to give advice and insight into the area. The property is beautiful in a beautiful setting. The pool is great and it’s unusual to have so much space so close to a great town. See you next year 😊
Our family had an amazing time in Todi - thank you Adele, your insights and hospitality were greatly appreciated!
The most gracious host I've had ever stayed with
Stayed at Adele's property for almost 3 weeks with my family. As it turns out one of our favourite family vacations. Todi is a great town with lots of amenities. Other sites within Umbria are just a half hour away which sent us exploring every day.
Over the years we have stayed in many self catering units this unit and the location is ideal.
Adele is always on hand to help she is the best host I've stayed with and would not hesitate to stay again or to recommend her accommodation. Thank you Adele for a great experience.
The house provides all the comforts of vacation living in a delightful location. Only 50 meters from the medieval walls of the town of Todi it stands at the center of a garden and an olive grove, a fruit orchard and vegetable gardeb. The owners, Paola and Giovanni, live in Davis California (USA) and love coming to the Villa for their vacations with their 3 children.
