Il Bacio del Lupo is part of an old farmhouse or 'casa coloniale' that used to house several generations under one roof with their live stock. The house is situated in one of the most beautiful valleys around the medieval town of Todi with views on the river Tiber and medieval village Montemolino. In the 7,000 m2 property you'll find a salt water pool and a beautiful garden to relax. There are plenty of hiking opportunities at your doorstep. La Crescionda is in the middle of peace and quiet but on the other hand conveniently close to nice little restaurants, shops and markets. Beautiful cities as Todi, Orvieto, Assisi, Perugia and Gubbio are within a one hours drive range. Rome, Florence, Sienna, Montepulciano and many other gems are within 1,5 - 2 hour range by car. Whatever it is you're looking for, it is within your reach. Our property borders to an organic farm run by our good friends and neighbors where you can get fresh veggies, fruits and jams.

About Stella Bronwasser
Until 2016 we have been entrepreneurs in Brooklyn, NY before we moved back to Europe, Italy. Originally from Amsterdam, we owned a Dutch bike shop - Rolling Orange Bikes - in Brooklyn and set up a guided bike tour company Rolling Orange Bike Tours, that is still thriving under new ownership. However much we will always love the big City, we're really happy to let our roots down in this beautiful part of Italy. We purchased the house end of 2016 and set out to renovate it immediately to make it a vacation and retreat home for guests from all around the world.

Why Stella Bronwasser chose Province of Perugia
Il Bacio del Lupo is situated in the beautiful rolling hills of Umbria so you can really enjoy peace and quiet, mesmerizing views, long walks and catching up on your reading. If you want culture though, it's also within reach. Orvieto, Perugia and Assisi are less than 45 minutes away. Medieval Todi and Monte Castello less than 15 minutes. Also nice shops and small restaurants are within a 10 minutes drive from the house. The property is an example of Italian gardens from a long time ago with mostly trees, plants and flowers that are native. It also has an intriguing dove tower from the 1700's where families used to keep doves for consumption. In our opinion we found the spot that has it all: great outdoors, an antique beautifully restored farmhouse and great culture all in one. Not to mention the great local food, wines and liquors you have access to. Our next door friends and neigbors run a organic agriculture.
What makes this Cottage unique
La Crescionda is a spacious and bright apartment with a porch and a terrace to enjoy early coffee or late nite drinks and everything in between. From your doorstep you walk straight to the salt water pool that you mostly have all to yourself. The view from your apartment and the pool on the valley and river is downright stunning. The house may be old, the inside has been renovated and been brought up to date. We furnished the home with our own furniture from all over Europe and the US. You won't find an empty nest furnished with Ikea stuff, but a home that is supposed to really make you feel at home. We just hope you'll love it as much as we do.

Amazing Property, Wonderful Hosts, Great Location, Good Value!!!
We have been traveling to Italy every year for 15 years, and this is one of the nicest properties we have ever stayed in.
It is a very beautiful old stone house, tastefully updated with modern features (such as large walk in shower, salt water pool). Overall the accommodations were very spacious, yet cozy. The master bed was a true double (rather than twins pushed together), and extremely comfortable. You could actually fit quite a few people in the house, but it didn't feel too big for just the two of us, either. One of the things we really liked about the house is that there were all sort of nooks to settle into, so that you didn't feel all on top of each other. The view from the property is of the breathtaking rolling hills of Umbria. It is especially nice to enjoy a sunrise or sunset by the pool. The property is centrally located and we found it easy to get to all of our day trip destinations in an hour or less. There is a large supermarket 5-10 minutes away if you need snacks or would like to eat in.
Stella and Marc were perfect hosts, friendly and available if needed (or just to chat), but also low key if you prefer to be left alone. They have two adorable and friendly cats we enjoyed (but if you are allergic, don't worry, they are not allowed in the rental property). They also had thoughtful recommendations for places to visit and restaurants to dine at (true local gems).
We would highly recommend this property to anyone and plan to stay again many times in the future.
Mille grazie. We're very happy to have hosted you. You have been wonderful guests. Please come back. Un abraccio, Marc & Stella
