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.
