Just home from Carlo's apartment in Todi. The apartment is in an absolutely charming and friendly town in Umbria. The apartment is inside the old City wall a short distance from theCentral square . It is a beautiful apartment with lovely decor but the wow factor are the views...especially from the balcony. To top it off Carlo is a super host who gave us great recommendations for restraints and days out. We would highly recommend the apartment and the town of Todi for your trip to Umbria
This beautiful townhouse is in a very old building on a quiet street in Todi, which is a perfect base for exploring Umbria. Carlo has renovated and decorated the apartment impeccably. It has much more space than we expected: two bedrooms, a formal salon with historical furniture, and a bathroom on one level, and a modern living room, dining room, large kitchen, half bath, and balcony on another level. The balcony does indeed have breathtaking views of church bells, rooftops, and the countryside beneath Todi. The main bed has a new and very comfortable mattress. The kitchen is well appointed, including a washing machine, and can accommodate full meals. The best feature is Carlo, who is enthusiastic, welcoming, and a gold mine of suggestions, maps, and guides. Highly recommended.
We absolutely loved staying in Carlo's apartment in Todi. The view is unbelievable (almost every window has an incredible view). We spent a lot of time on the balcony relaxing at the end of each day. Carlo is a perfect host. He really goes out of his way to make sure you are happy and comfortable in his home. When we booked the apartment, we thought that it might be too big since it is just for two of us. We never regretted our decision. It was such a treat to have some extra room to relax in. The location is perfect. We visited several of the medieval hill top towns in the region during our five night stay and we agreed that Todi is our favorite. So charming and a central location to so much to see and do in the area. We walked everywhere in Todi. There was no need for us to use our car once we returned from our many day trips. The highlight of our trip was a cooking class with La Lingua La Vita school. If you are looking for an authentic experience with an Italian family, we highly recommend doing this.
My husband and I stayed at this wonderfully appointed townhouse with friends and it suited us perfectly. It was conveniently located within the historic city center, close enough to walk to everything Todi has to offer but also a short, easy walk from free perimeter parking.
It is beautifully decorated with art and antiques and has a well-equipped kitchen.
The little balcony off the dining room is a lovely place to sip coffee in the morning or enjoy a glass of wine while taking in the sunset.
Carlo is a knowledgeable, warm and gracious host.
You can't go wrong with the rental.
My husband and I have stayed in Italy in numerous places over the last fifteen years and Carlo's place is the best place we have ever stayed in! Unlike most places within a town it is exceptionally private and filled with light. There are beautiful views from every window and the place is spotlessly clean. Beautiful art covers the walls and the bookcase is filled with guidebooks and novels. Carlo has lost of great suggestions for half day and full day trips which we made use of. Todi is a great base for getting around Umbria as it is quite central. It feels like a real town with real people living in unlike some of the Umbrian towns which feel like they are only still in existence due to the tourists flocking in.
One word of advice - plan out your days at the start and check opening times of things you want to see. We missed a couple of things that were closed on our last day as we hadn't done our research. We'll just have to come back again!
