Activities/Attractions: Todi is a picturesque medieval hill town in Umbria, surrounded by medieval, Roman and Etruscan walls. Although it's a hill town, its center at the top of the hill is flat. The central piazza, originally the Roman forum, has several beautiful medieval buildings.
Sights are close together and there are good places to linger, enjoying the views or the ambiance. Todi or the surrounding countryside would make a peaceful base for visiting southern Umbria.
"We were very fortunate with the consistently good weather, but we were even more fortunate to be in your house, which made our stay in Todi very special for us. We have arranged for rentals before, but we have never had a house that was so comfortable and so visually pleasing that we often had to force ourselves to drive off to visit other places in Umbria. The only way we managed to do it was to remind ourselves that we could count on breakfast and dinner on the patio every morning and evening. The simplicity of the house and the beauty of every detail was a constant pleasure to us, and we valued the quiet surroundings, the comfortable beds, and the spacious kitchen, as well as the extraordinary "touristic" library you provided and your detailed instructions about the house and about what was available to us in Todi and its environs. Thank you for being such a thoughtful and attentive landlord. We hope one day to come back, and in the meantime we will certainly recommend your wonderful house to any friends who want an unforgettable experience of Umbria."
"Want to let you know that my stay in Todi was indeed a memorable one and your beautiful house an integral part of making it so. How very lucky to have found such a perfect place-so pleasing both aesthetically and "comfort-wise." I was also pleased we had a chance to meet. My very best wishes to you and your family."
"We enjoyed corresponding with you and meeting you, enjoying your former home and understanding what excellent and thoughtful service you provided for during our stay."
"Upon entering the house we thought that we had found our own private paradise. Your restoration of the structure is in perfect taste. It combines the truth of the medieval with the modern. The mixture is exquisite. There is no one who would not appreciate the view of the Tiber valley in the morning. In the house everything was welcoming and comfortable. By the second day we felt that we had lived there a long time."
