Review by Angie & Tony from CO

4bed/3bath villa near Todi, Umbria


When

August 2001, 2 weeks

Location

The villa is in the hills near Todi. The setting is picturesque, with view of Todi and the countryside. Although there are other homes nearby, it is quite private.

Nearby Amenities

Driving is required to get to everything, but the trip to Todi and the surrounding towns can be accomplished on country roads.

Garden

The garden and pool area are nicely landscaped and we spent the majority of the afternoons and evenings swimming and enjoying dinner outdoors.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

The carefully chosen furnishings accommodated our group quite comfortably. Every need has been anticipated.

Bedrooms/Bathrooms

The bedrooms and bathrooms were well supplied and our group of 8 had plenty of privacy.

Problems or Bonuses

The local woman who serves as caretaker is pleasant, honest and helpful. The owner referred us to an auto rental agency which couldn't have been more accommodating. For a reasonable fee, we were collected in Florence and returned there at the end of our stay. We also rented a car from the agency while we were at Le Rondini. Since we were traveling with small children, this assistance with the "difficult" parts of the agenda was invaluable and made the whole adventure simple.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

Note from SlowTrav: The owner has a web site for the house, Rent Le Rondini but it is booked through Italian Vacation Villas, a SlowTrav Favorite agency: www.villasitalia.com.

The American owner of this villa is a regular on our Slow Talk message board.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

Le Rondini is one of the most beautifully serene places we've been. It's perfect for a family or group in search of a quiet place to relax in the Italian countryside.

Things to do in this area

Once again, the owner has detailed where to go for everything from restaurants to fine linens. We traveled extensively, with Le Rondini as our base, and found the area charming.
