Podere Masale was completely renovated in summer 2014 and became a truly wonderful modern/light classic country house for 12 guests in the heart of Umbria, only ten minutes car drive from the well sought town of Todi. After a thorough and careful restoration the house and its direct surroundings are turned into an ideal holiday home with beautiful pool and large surrounding terraces. This house is the ideal mix between history and 2015 style comfort and design. The large, luxurious rooms and areas make it to a very comfortable place to stay. The location on the border of the provinces Perugia-Terni is ideal: privately but not remote in the middle of the Umbrian countryside with views on rolling hills and the small medieval town of Pesciano. The pittoresque fortified town of Sismano is at only two steps distance.

Podere Masale is under fulltime exclusive Special Umbria Property Management.

Why this is Special
Podere Masale is a very comfortable, carefully restored property with a large garden and pool and vast undisturbed views. Ideally located south of the well known city of Todi with good connections to the Motorway for Rome and other large cities.
What our clients say
June 2017: 'We had the BEST vacation ever! The villa was much more than we expected - it was simply WAU when we arrived and saw the house, interior and the view. Every little detail was perfect - we couldn’t find any “mistakes” and we loved staying in such a beautiful home.
Fore sure we will come again!!' MW

Todi is a wonderful old town, very lively, on 10 minutes by car. Here you will find all services, also for daily shopping.

You can visit the wine museum near the vineyards of Torgiano and buy hand painted ceramics at any number of shops in nearby Deruta. You can savor the celebrated red wines of Montefalco and buy the richly textured Umbrian traditional linens available at several shops in Todi itself.

For the more athletically inclined, jogging up and down the hills around around the property provides a most vigorous workout, that is, if doing laps in the pool isn't already enough; but for the best recreation of all visit the restaurants, pizzerias and gelaterias of Todi. They are wonderful enough to entice you back many times for the duration of your stay.

Some small shops and an excellent restaurant are in Sismano; a more broader offering can be found in Todi at roughly 10 minutes drive.
Ideal for long walks directly from the property.
Cooking can be organized by an experienced Italian Chef.
