Overview

Umbria 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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)*

Grazie mille Rosa, Bruno!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

After weeks of searching for just the right villa in a great central location in Umbria, my girlfriends and I kept coming back to Villa Rosaspina, and so glad we chose to stay here! It was even better than the pictures and description, we spent a lovely week in this beautifully restored, tranquil and relaxing villa. Rosa was such a delight, very helpful and a great cook! The villa is rustic and simply but so tastefully decorated, and very well maintained. We enjoyed the beautiful landscape and the pool was a wonderful way to enjoy the warm afternoons. Todi is charming and just a ten minute drive with great little restaurants. The local EMI grocery store is also quite close with everything you need. We have already recommended this place to others, and would not hesitate to stay again! We had a great girls vacation and Villa Rosaspina was truly the highlight!

Perfect vacation villa

  • 5 of 5

It was our fiftieth anniversary celebration and we couldn't have spent it in a more wonderful spot. Our family of six rented this lovely villa for a week of celebrating, bonding, relaxing,cooking, exploring, eating (our cooking and the wonderful Umbrian cuisine), no drinking the local wines. We were delighted to find the ideal place to make it happen. This charming well appointed, lovingly reconstructed 18th century farmhouse is a jewel set in a magnificent setting. The view, the pool, the location, the appointments and comfort are hard to beat. The icing on the cake is the Bucci family. Rosa is a doll who is not only beautiful but is also a great cook. Both Bruno and Rosa are helpful and most kind. We will definitely be back again.

La Dolce Vita

  • 5 of 5

It was a dream realized - two weeks under the Umbrian sun with seven dear friends in a private villa! The magical element of this dream was Villa Rosaspina. We couldn't believe our good fortune in finding such an amazing property. The tranquility, the privacy, and the incredible location immediately transported us into the very heart of Umbria. The villa itself is simply yet elegantly designed, with all the basic amenities. The outdoor covered terrace and the pool area, where we spent most of our time when we weren't touring all the easily accessible sites of Umbria, were perfectly positioned to take advantage of the stunning surrounds. We particularly appreciated the fact that each of the four bedrooms had its own ensuite, and each was of comparable size and comfort. The "democratic nature" of this arrangement meant there was no need for any couple to feel like they had to compromise or make do. But the real essence of the place comes from the care and love that the owner Bruno, and his effervescently charming daughter Rosa have put into the stewardship of this piece of paradise. They are the soul of this place, and their utter devotion to the land is evident everywhere. If you've ever wondered what love looks like, this is it.

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.
