Vacation rentals in Italy (villas, farms, estates, agriturismo, apartments)
Review 3323: La Torriola, Apartment
apartments in a villa near Todi, Umbria
September 2007, 3 days
La Torriola is in a stunning location, just in front of the hill of Todi. It is a secluded property surrounded by woods where one can walk on well designed paths.
It is at walking distance from a small village with grocery, coffee bar, church, post office. If you prefer a supermarket it is less than 3 Km.
It was a villa recently restored, and subdivided into five self-catering apartments. Quiet and peaceful, I had a good time relaxing, swimming and hiking.
There is a garden well maintained, with garden furniture and a communal patio. Every apartment has its private portion of garden. The communal pool is quite near the villa.
Everything is really new, well kept and clean. We were two people in our apartment and had place to sit and dine for four.
The beds were comfortable, according to my view (I prefer a pretty hard mattress). The bathrooms were nice and comfortable, with good quality tiles.
There was a full kitchen, where it could have been possible to cook everything: there is also an oven. But I preferred to go to the restaurant, as my stay was very short and wanted to taste the local food.
Problems or Bonuses
Good surprise: the place is ideal for families, but I had my good time and privacy with my girlfriend and had the opportunity to swim and having relaxing massages.
Bad surprise: whenever I tried to get connected to the Internet to download my mail, I had to fight with a poor and slow connection.
Agency and Representatives (and price)
I booked directly from the owner, and paid €100 per night (all included).
Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?
I am sure I'll go there again, for a longer stay in spring or summer.
Things to do in this area
Mountain biking, swimming, relaxing in the hot tube.
