Perched between the sky and the green Umbrian countryside, the LUXURY COUNTRY HOUSE with infinity-pool boasts a spectacular position overlooking the valley and the Medieval centre of Todi which, with its bell towers and domed churches, stands out on the landscape between the farmhouse itself and the far off horizon.
The landscape, that guests can admire from the garden dining alfresco or having an aperitif at sunset, looks like a XV century painting and is a combination of pristine nature and the patient works of mankind who, over two thousand years, has laid the roads that have been in use since Roman times, cultivated the fields, the olive groves and the vineyards, and has constructed a series of hilltop villages.

Reached by an exciting drive through winding roads and hairpin turns, this ancient city is an unexpected delight. Described as one of the 'most liveable towns in the world', Todi has retained much of the original features and charming character of the town's diverse historical periods in the face of passing time. With a rich history that dates back to around 1300 BC, Todi was settled by the Umbri, an ancient pre-Etruscan people who gave it the name Tudere.
