Great place to stay
The booking process and communication with the owner Irit were smooth and timely.
We had a warm welcome from Marcello and Fanny who were helpful throughout the week
The villa is charming. The location is delightful with far reaching views of rolling hills . The pool was a great size for a family of five and, although unheated, felt surprisingly warm. There was always a gentle breeze which was welcome in the 37 degree heat of late July.
We had a few table tennis tournaments in the basement which was nice and cool.
If I could make one change to the villa it would be to have better mattresses and pillows
The nearby town of Todi is beautiful and we had good food at Ristorantes Cavour and Scalette both of which have stunning views on their terraces ( book to avoid disappointment).
There is a stunning waterfall, Cascata Delle Malmore, about 40 mins away which is well worth visiting. We also loved Perugia, the regional capital which has great shops as well as architecture!
Thank you for staying with us, we will be happy to host you again!
Lovely villa, awesome viewa
Our week at Casa Canonica was lovely despite unlucky weather. The views are spectacular, the beds comfortable and the pool is fantastic. Fanny and Marcello were lovely. Would love to go again when the sun is shining and without the road works which were unfortunately going on outside the house while we were there which was no ones fault but disturbed the peace and tranquility a bit and caused a power cut - but that was quickly sorted and the owner was very responsive and helpful when it happened.
Thank you for your review, I am sorry for
the inconvenience caused by the work in the street pipes
and by the weather, we will be happy to host you again
in the future!
thank you for staying in Casa Canonica
Wonderful house in a beautiful setting, the pictures don't do it justice
Just back from a wonderful stay at Casa Canonica, with a trip to Rome added either side of the trip.
The pictures don't do the house or its setting justice - but I think you have to be stood out on the hillside looking out at the Umbrian countryside with your own eyes to really appreciate it. The house is well equipped, and clean. The view out from the kitchen to the outside dining area is particularly special and we really loved the large kitchen table. The pool area is wonderful, we were worried that the unheated pool would be too cold but it was fine- particularly in the hot sun. Plenty of shady areas meant we had wonderful lazy mornings in and out of the pool, and no one got too much sun. We really enjoyed watching the clouds bubble up in the afternoon just as the day threatened becoming too hot, and then hearing thunderstorms boom around the valley. A short, sharp shower and then back to sunny afternoons - huge fun! Another lovely thing to do was stroll through the olive grove with a glass of wine.
Todi nearby is a gem - and we visited other nearby hill towns including Orvieto and Cortona in Tuscany.
By way of balance, we did find the bedrooms a little too hot (the fans in each room helped). We were reluctant to open the windows as we felt the shutters wouldn't give effective insect protection. We did get rather eaten alive by mosquitos! insect blinds on the windows would have helped. The basement games area is fun, but could be improved presentationally.
All in all, Casa Canonica exceeded our expectations. Thank you Marcello for letting us stay in your wonderful house in Bella Italia!
Dear Gemma,Thank you, we were happy to host you, and hope to see you again!
Lovely pool and beautiful views.
The villa has easy access and is close to good road network. Supermarket is close and is of a high standard. The villa itself was very clean and quite well equipped. Outdoor seating is great for eating outside and comfortable near the poolside. The lounge is small for the number of people it supports but most time was spent out of doors. The upstairs bedrooms were very hot even using the fans that were provided. Good showers for all bedrooms.
The pool is great even if not heated! The depth makes it great for swimming and was used by everyone.
The view from the villa was superb and olive trees surrounded it.
Thank you for choosing Casa Canonica, and for your comments
Fabulous house in a lovely area
This house was pretty 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.
Thank you,we will be happy to host you again in the future!
Fantastic house in great location
We have just packed up and are sadly leaving Casa Canonica. What an ideal 'slow travel' location near unbelievably beautiful hilltop towns filled with great food and few tourists. We were two families with two kids each (8 and 5) and the house was the perfect size. The pool at the house was amazing during the hot days we were here and the house itself gets a constant gentle breeze. The covered Terrace off the kitchen was magical, especially at night Todi is beautiful and has some very good restaurants, and we also visited Orvieto, Assisi and other local towns, as well as a local winery.
Overall, this house and Umbria in general is a great place to visit if you want a relaxing getaway replete with great food and wine. Will definitely be returning.
We are happy to hear you have enjoyed Casa Canonica, hope to see you again in the future!
CANONICA is often referred to as the Beverly Hills of Todi thanks to it southerly exposure, wonderful views and proximity to many historic sites.
TODI, according to legend was built by Hercules, grew as a border city (Todi comes from Tutere = border) of the Etruscan dominions and was finally conquered by the Romans in 217BC.
The city flourished in the 12th and 13th centuries as a 40,000 inhabitants powerful and independent Comune. It was annexed to the Papal States in 1367 and remained part of the Church dominion until the unification of Italy in 1861.
The Ideal City
At the beginning of the 90’s, the University of Kentucky, based on a series of qualitative factors, elected Todi the “Ideal City”, a place in which nature and man, history and tradition combined to a point of world-wide excellence. Todi was unexpectedly chosen as the most livable city in the world.
