Information

 

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.

Villa del Falco is a spacious villa for families or friends holidaying together, ideal for intimate events and anniversaries in the undisturbed countryside.

Its peaceful setting is conveniently close to Todi (9,5 kms - 15 minutes drive), Orvieto (40 kms) and Perugia (50 kms) for restaurants, shopping, art galleries and nightlife; to Montefalco (40 kms) and the wine district of Umbria and to Spoleto (50 kms) and Assisi (60 kms), for medieval architecture, white truffles, olive oil production and Franciscan itineraries trough woods and hillside retreats of hermits.

Nearest restaurants are 2 kms away (4 minutes drive): Ristorante Rosa dei Venti is one of the best restaurants of the area. Restaurant la Cruccola, same distance in the village of Acqualoreto, is a family restaurant very appreciated by our guests. Nearest bar is 4 minutes drive, the supermarket is 10/15 minutes drive.

In Todi there is also a connection to free motorway E45 leading to the South (Rome) and the North (Perugia, Tuscany).

 

 

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.

The house consists of 2 parts: the main villa (sleeps up 11+1) and the annexed dependance (sleeps up 2+2).

The entire property can comfortably accommodate up to 13 people inside and outside, extra beds can be provided if necessary.

The dependance is on ground floor and is ideal for people with restricted mobility or for guests looking for more privacy, having an independent entrance. It can be reserved at an extra cost.

It is possible to rent just the main villa; in that case guests staying in the villa would have exclusive use of the park and pool, none would stay in the dependance.
