All rooms inside the house are big with plenty of open space. You could easily accommodate 2 families with their own space on separate upper floors (We only needed the middle floor to sleep our family). The pool is big and deep with amazing views over the valleys. Only a few hundred metres from the main road, but you feel total seclusion from everyone else if you like your privacy. Maria was absolutely lovely to deal with and left us alone to enjoy our time there. Whenever we did need to contact her, she responded quickly and always made us feel looked after. The town 'Citta della Pieve' is a beautiful and interesting medieval town, with some great places to eat at very reasonable prices if you have kids. We know we will be back, it's perfect!

It is spacious, well laid out, well equipped, pretty and comfortable - we loved it. Its close proximity to Todi was a real bonus - what a lovely town to have on your doorstep. The garden was lovely, the views across the fields stunning and sitting on the bench, with a nice cold beer, watching the shooting stars was very enjoyable! The pool is a great size and the perfect temperature. The games room in the basement was a real plus - nice and cool and the kids (big and small) loved it. There is so much to do in the area. The couple who look after the house were lovely and helpful and it was a brilliant holiday.
