Review 4414: La Torriola, Apartment


Review by Peter S from Germany

apartments in a villa near Todi, Umbria


22.08.2009 to 05.09.2009, two weeks


An American study has once described Todi as one of the cities with best quality of life in the world. Much better than that is to stay in Agriturismo La Torriola in Pian di Sa Martino, a small village 5 km from Todi. Torriola’s location is very convenient to make a day trip to Rom or other nice old cites. But not only the nice location and the rural landscape are the reason, why we have stayed in Torriola already several times. In Torriola we can really enjoy the best quality of life.

It begins with the warm welcome by the owner and his wife, who are waiting for us with wines, olive oils, honey and a cake. Everything is homemade. Soon we feel at home.

If we need advice for our day trip or something else, we just need to ask the owner, Maurizio, who comes everyday to Torriola.

The accommodations are very comfortable. In the kitchen-garden we can pick tomatoes with morning dew for the breakfast and fresh vegetables and herbs for the supper. In the daytime we enjoy swimming in the pool surrounded with roses and lavenders. Poolside there is a fig tree. In August we could taste its ripe fruits. When we are back from a day-trip we still have time to lie on the deck chair on the terrace.

La Torriola located on a hillside with olive trees and walnut trees, which also belong to the owner. Lying on the deck chair on the terrace we never tire of viewing the valley of the Tiber with a rural landscape to the town of Todi. In the evening we enjoy the wine of Torriola and a silhouette of Todi in the moonlight. We find ourselves in a peaceful harmony with the world.
