La Torre


From its stunning vantage point, La Torre is an exceptional property that offers sensitive modern design and comfort within its grand, ancient walls.


La Torre is an impressive medieval square tower. Built at the end of the 12th century and added to in the 14th century, it is one of a number of such fortifications surrounding Todi. Today, it is a five-storey property that maintains its original architectural features while cosseting guests in its comfortable, light-filled interior.

There are six double bedrooms and seven bathrooms, spread over three floors, with three separate kitchens, five living rooms, three dining rooms and a lift between levels that can carry you up all 24m to the roof terrace. Here, the panoramic view stretches over the quintessential cypresses and olive groves of the rolling Umbrian hills.

The property has terracotta and white travertine floors, exposed beams, gentle archways and sandstone fireplaces, as well as modern, high-spec kitchens, and furniture that cleverly matches family heirlooms with design pieces.

Outside, the garden has been replanted according to 19th-century records with an emphasis on old rose varieties. The beautiful pool has a decked surround and you can swim with a backdrop of lavender bushes and olive trees.

La Torre lies within easy reach of some of the most culturally rich towns in Umbria and just a ten-minute walk uphill to the nearest bakery. With its thoughtful design, flexibility of space and rich history, it’s ideal for several families or groups of friends to enjoy together.

Kitchen

Five-burner gas hobs are built into sleek stainless steel, a bright orange gloss cupboard run and a shiny grey island, while all the necessary fixtures and gadgets are available to help you enjoy cooking, using the abundance of local produce. Alternatively, you can ask for a chef to cook you fresh, regional food as per your party’s request.

Your villa and Covid-19


To prevent any possible spread of Covid-19 and to enable you to enjoy a safe and relaxing holiday, all our villas are cleaned to the highest standard possible, and according to the latest Italian health and safety regulations.

Perfect hygiene: to ensure an exceptional level of hygiene in all our villas, we’ve worked with our owners to create a Covid-19 villa management protocol. Based on recommendations from the World Health Organisation, and in compliance with current Italian national law, this protocol goes above and beyond our usual rigorous cleaning standards.

Prior to arrival, your villa will have been fully sanitised, including all surfaces, objects, kitchen items, curtains, sofas, throws, pillows, toys, and in and around the pool. You are welcome to ask for a detailed list of the entire cleaning procedure we do after each departure and before welcoming new guests to the property.

The owner of this house has complied with the following standards:

  • To ensure the necessary information concerning social distancing and the use of masks is available to all guests
  • To guarantee availability of and accessibility to hand hygiene systems with hydro-alcoholic solutions and soaps in all inside areas of, and pertaining to, the villa
  • To guarantee cleaning and disinfection of all areas according to national authority guidelines. Further information is available on request
  • For the swimming pool: to guarantee the efficacy of the water treatments, while respecting legal limits (the parameter for free active chlorine in the pool is between 1.0 – 1.5 mg/l; combined chlorine ≤ 0.40 mg/l; pH 6.5 – 7.5 or equivalent oxygen)
  • For air conditioning systems: to guarantee the air re-circulation function is switched off and, according to the manufacturer’s instructions, with the plant in off-mode, to clean the air filters of the heating/cooling plants that use heat pumps, fan coils and convectors, at the end of each stay
