Set in the heart of Umbria’s countryside, Villa del Falco is an elegant stone-built house including a mediaval watchover tower dating back to the XIV century, protected for its great historical value. Villa del Falco enjoyes a breathtaking view of Todi's historic centre, with bell towers and the huge dome of Santa Maria della Consolazione church.
The name of the villa refers to the presence of a couple of hawks, whose flight can be observed in the quitest days, high in the sky over the park.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPERTY
Villa del Falco is very spacious and elegantly furnished, predominant colors are light cream and purple red, combined with the wood color of the furniture and beams and the neutral colours of the stone walls. Decorations can be found in the wooden-beamed ceilings and the fireplace of the main living room; the study and a beautiful bedroom in the tower, have a wall entirely decorated with medieval or religious sceneries.
