Villa L'Arco is a perfect holiday destination. A lovely, well equipped villa with air conditioning available at extra cost in all the bedrooms and a plentiful supply of modern bathrooms. The terrace is a wonderful place to relax and the pool was perfect for the boys. Rosa is a friendly and helpful host and her cakes were delicious.
Wonderful Villa L'Arco
From the moment we arrived, we felt at home in this delightful villa. The setting was idyllic...overlooking a typical Umbrian scene with the lovely pool in the foreground and surrounded by carefully tended and beautifully planted gardens. Our host Rosa was a delight! An accomplished cook and generous in her attention to detail, making sure at all times that we had everything we needed make our stay even more special. The location was perfect and we would highly recommend this villa to anyone!!!
A perfect place to celebrate my 70th birthday
I couldn’t have chosen a better place to celebrate my 70th birthday with my family.
I did a lot of research beforehand to find the perfect place and I certainly found it with Villa L’Arco.
It was ideal for us as I didn’t want a party, just wanted to be with my family and have a week in Italy that I would remember for the rest of my life and I certainly did that.
There were 6 adults in all and the villa was extremely spacious as shown in the Homeaway photos so there were many places you could just relax by yourself and have a nap or read a book. Lots of lovely walks to go on too.
The property is in a beautiful, peaceful, rural setting, olive trees and fruit trees everywhere, very homely, immaculately clean and well maintained. It’s very close to the town of Todi which is a lovely little town, certainly worth seeing. There is a large supermarket not far from the villa so we were able to stock up on food as soon as we arrived. They had everything we needed.
It was still quite warm while we were there so the beautiful pool was well used, especially after a day of touring around.
Rosa, the owner was excellent and was always nearby and available if we needed anything and she even helped me find a doctor when I developed a sudden medical problem. In addition she spoilt us with some of her home baked treats. It was a lovely surprise to return after a day of touring a find Rosa had baked something for us.
On my actual birthday we took advantage of Rosa’s offer to prepare a dinner for us at the Villa and what a wonderful feast it was.
For dessert she made an incredible Tiramisu which was to die for.
Thank you Rosa for everything!
We will never forget the week we spent in Umbria and certainly hope to return one day. Just a shame Australia is so far away!
2nd Visit Just As Fantastic As Our 1st
We have just enjoyed our 2nd fantastic stay at this excellent villa. We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage sons and we all had a very relaxing and extremely enjoyable week here.
Villa L'Arco is set in the most peaceful and relaxing location you could wish for but is also only a 10 minute drive to the huge EMI supermarket which stocks everything you could ask for and does some very high quality food as well as all the basics. Todi itself is about a 15 minute drive and parking is easy as we used the car park at the bottom of the hill before you enter the town. The usual small railway/lift to the town was out of action this time but the local authority had laid on a minibus to the top which seemed to be available every 10 minutes or so at most. Brilliant.
Our favourite restaurant in Todi was Le Scalette, which is down a few steps off of the small road leading tho the town centre. Brilliant food with great variety and friendly service. We were given an outside table with fantastic elevated views of the surrounding area on each of the two occasions we visited.
Back to Villa L'Arco....this really is an amazing place to stay. The pictures speak for themselves and are an accurate description of the facilities. Everything is very clean and well maintained, the air conditioning throughout is very welcome and the pool is perfect. Our favourite place was again the veranda where you can sit looking over the beautiful gardens, pool and surrounding hills. Whether enjoying a game of cards, reading or having dinner outside on the lovely warm evenings, sitting at the table on the veranda is just perfect.
And finally our host, Rosa.
You couldn't ask for a happier, more friendly, hard working and helpful owner. Always on hand if you need anything but never intrusive. Rosa, thank you once again for another perfect holiday. It was lovely to meet you again. The two dinners you made for us were again perfect and as for the cakes, it really is very hard to decide which was the best ! Thank you.
We highly recommend Villa L'Arco and look forward to staying here again in the future.
Highly recommend this property :)
The pictures on this site are lovely, but in reality it is even more beautiful.
The area is idyllic. Hard to ask for more peace and tranquility. Our 'host' Rosa was so very welcoming and kind. We lost count of the beautiful home baked cakes she would drop by with. The villa is stylish and large. Lots of space and sunlight. The gardens are meticulously kept and the pool is great.
Thank you so much Bruno and Rosa for helping make our holiday a great experience. x
Definitely recommend the people, the property and the area. (all lovely)
Beautiful villa in idyllic location
We received a warm welcome, and treats from Rosa, who was a wonderful source of support when a family crisis occured.
The villa is delightful and is immaculately maintained.
We hope to return.
