Villa Rosmarino is a traditional oak-beamed Umbrian stone villa, sympathetically renovated and restored with all the modern up to date expectations but still retaining the old stone, wooden beams and charm.
Standing on a hill just south of Todi, in the Tiber valley national park, it lies at the centre of one of Italy’s areas of great historical, artistic and cultural interest, not forgetting outstanding natural beauty.
The villa is surrounded by its own olive grove, vineyard and woodland with century old oak trees and is perfect for families, friends holidaying together and in general, for people who love privacy.
