About Dori Phaff

We very recently purchased this house fulfilling a 30 year-old dream of owning a house in Italy. We have travelled to Italy a lot as a family and always rented houses. Happily we are moving towards retirement years and see this as a wonderful place to spend some months at a time-- it puts us closer to friends and family who live outside the US-- affording us the opportunity to host them in our home.

Dori Phaff purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Dori Phaff chose Todi

Because this property is in a gated community of only 12 houses, it is so very peaceful and looked after. There is a caretaker for all the properties who lives very close by and makes ownership so easy for us. No one lives full time in this borgo (hamlet) and is, therefore, peaceful and quiet. The house is located on a gorgeous hill with sweeping views and one heck of a garden. I take no credit for its beauty as the previous owner created this garden with olive trees (one of which is 350 years old), pomegranate trees and other ornamental and useful shrubs. The views from the balcony and the terrace are breathtaking.

What makes this cottage unique

I love the placement of the house within the borgo. It is safe and secure, being in a gated community. It is easy to drive to anywhere you want-- a short drive to many places. It is centrally located --Rome 2 hours away and cities in Tuscany also not far and easily done in day trips. Todi-- a fabulous city with cafes, bars, restaurants and amazing views is a 15 minute drive, Perugia is 45 minutes, What I love most is that the house is centrally located making so many places easily accessible.

Lovely private house in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

Ginestre Due is exactly as described. It is well furnished and equipped, very private location with a shared pool at the end of the garden. The pool is not heavily utilised, we had it almost to ourselves most of the time. There is also a tennis court on site. It's an ideal place for a relaxing holiday in the Umbrian countryside. It's a 15 min drive to Todi, the nearest reasonably sized town, and Perugia, Orvieta and Assisi are an hour or so away, ideal for day trips.

The house is ideally sized for 4-6 people, the outdoor covered area is particularly nice for eating or barbecues, or just sitting out, being sheltered from direct sun, but still in the open air.

The onsite caretaker is never far away for any issues that arise, and the owner is very helpful and responsive, replying to emails within a couple of hours at the most.

There is also a lot of useful information provided about activities, trips and so on in the surrounding area.

We enjoyed it very much and would not hesitate to return again.

Idyllic!

  • 5 of 5

The location and property itself were everything we had hoped for. The owner has thought of everything so the villa is excellently equipped and spotlessly maintained and clean. The area is stunning, peaceful and quiet. The pool area, too, was very clean and not over-crowded. We all had a wonderful stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the property, area and all concerned. The owner was more than helpful and responded to any questions with promptness and complete efficiency. We would love to return!

Beautiful house in the gorgeous Umbrian countryside

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved the house, the furnishings and decor (great design!), the large pool, the expansive garden, and covered patio. The house is beautifully and functionally furnished, everything was very clean. The internet worked better than home, and the satellite tv was a plus. We would stay there again. 5 stars!

The Perfect Italian Villa

  • 5 of 5

Having anticipated our visit for more than a year, our expectations were very high and our beautiful villa exceeded them by far! The newly decorated furnishings were comfortable and very much in style. The pool was great and very much appreciated after busy days touring the Umbrian countryside. The villas central location in Umbria made day trips to Assisi, Orvieto, Bolsena, Perugia, and Todi easy and unhurried. Unequaled shopping and dining within a few easy miles. The caretaker, Kumara, was extremely helpful with getting settled in the villa and answering all our questions. Peace and quiet in a gorgeous setting after several days visiting busy European cities was the perfect end to our trip. Don't miss this gem on your trip to Italy.

A Relaxing House Rental, Very Secure, in Gorgeous Hills of Umbria

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the house, and the group of a dozen houses, felt safe and well-run. Even a gateway to keep the property private. The house itsellf is beautiful, newly furnished and not cluttered with any old things like so many rental villas. Good taste, everything one needs to relax and to prepare food -- for eating indoors (big table) or outdoors. The owners (very cooperative and reachable by e-mail) say they will place a pair of tennis racquets in the house, and that is good. The pool is just behind the big rear garden of this house, so cooling off is convenient and pleasant. The two-storey house is easy to enjoy, incl. satellite TV and other mod cons. Even in summer we did not need to use the air conditioning, but the lovely glass-surrounded sitting room does have AC. The garden is lovely. Above all, this part of Umbria is glorious: beautiful hills as seen from the house, fun sites and restaurants in very nearby Todi, a bit farther to Orvieto, Perugia, Assissi, and even to Spoleto and Florence -- or a day trip to Rome in the hire (rental) car was no problem. Mercifully, the earthquake this month did not affect this house or group of houses in Asproli at all. When driving to the house, get famlliar with the driving directions beforehand and pay attention to be on E45 and then SS3bis heading toward Perugia (but get out at "Todi-Orvieto"). It is easier to come, for the first time, in daylight -- but after the first time it is not difficult to find the house. Two hours from FCO airport in Rome, or just 40 minutes from Perugia airport. We were very relaxed and satisifed indeed!

Wonderful villa surrounded by the beauty of nature, perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

My family spent beautiful holiday there ! We enjoyed it a lot and very recommend it!

The house is located in the beautiful region of Italy - Umbria, where you can find a lot of interesting places to visit them.The villa is surrounded by the olive grove and old forest, it is also far away from the nearby village, so it is perfect place to stay for everyone, who wants to spend the holiday in the quiet place with breathtaking views and garden!

The house is very well-equipped and also the style of the interior is beautiful - we like it a lot - nice colours, confortable and useful furniture - that makes that our stay was unforgettable. Everything what is needed in the kitchen is of course there - new pots, dishes and whole equipment (like dishwasher).

The pool is very nice, always clean - even though it is not private, you don't feel it is crowded place.

We also love the garden - it is very big with typical mediterranean flora and also fruit trees - it is charming!

The caretaker, Mr Kumara, was always very helpful for us. He attended to all our needs.

The owner sent us a lot of information about the house and the area. We found this also very helpful. The contact with the owner was always efficient.

The nearby city - Todi - offers everything you need - supermarkets, cafe, restaurants and other local shops, it is also very interesting place to sightsee with ancient churches and old houses.

We recommend it a lot - perfect place for families with older children. One of the most beautiful place, where we spent our holiday time!
