Wij zijn 3 weken in deze villa geweest en hebben hier een fantastische vakantie gehad. De tijd is werkelijk voorbij gevlogen. Het plekje is echt meer dan prachtig. Met geweldige uitzichten, een fantastisch zwembad en de villa is van alle gemakken voorzien. Heerlijke bedden. Bij aankomst 3 heerlijke flessen wijn om de vakantie mee te beginnen. Naast dat de villa geweldig is, krijg je als cadeau er een verhuurder vol passie bij.
Gian, de verhuurder, staat namelijk altijd voor je klaar en is daarnaast zeer aangenaam gezelschap. Hij doet er alles aan om je een fantastische tijd te geven in zijn villa. Weet heerlijke restaurantjes in de omgeving en gaf een hoop tips voor trips die we konden maken. Hij heeft zelfs 2x heerlijk voor ons gekookt. Een heerlijke belevenis.
Ook zijn we samen met hem en onze kinderen (4, 7 en 10) naar Lago Pilato in de bergen geweest, waarbij hij ons begeleidt heeft. Een fantastische trip! Nogmaals bedankt Gian voor de geweldige tijd. Wij hebben er een vriend bij :). Wij gaan hier zeker vaker terugkomen!!
We have been 3 weeks in this villa and had a fantastic holiday there. The time has really flown by. The place is really more than beautiful. With great views, a fantastic pool and the villa is fully equipped. Lovely beds. Upon arrival three delicious bottles of wine to start the holiday with. Besides that the villa is great, you get as a gift, a host with a lot of passion.
Gian, the host, is always ready to help you and is also very pleasant company. He does everything to give you a fantastic time at his villa. He knows wonderful restaurants in the area and gave a lot of tips for trips that we could make. He even cooked twice for us a delicious dinner. A wonderful experience.
We have are also been with him and our three kids (4, 7 and 10) to Lago Pilato in the mountains, where he guided us. A fantastic trip! Gian, again thank you for the wonderful time. We have a new friend :). We will definitely come back here more often !!
100% Satisfied !!
We stayed for 2 weeks in this villa with a group of 9 (4 adults & 5 kids, 14-18y old) and it was GREAT! The villa has enough comfortable bed and bathrooms to easily host 9 people. The beds and pillows are very comfortable !!Seating area outside is equiped both with table + chairs as well as some lounge seats. The kitchen is very convenient and equipped with all necessary goods. Towels have been changed after a week: perfect service!
The pool is very very big and is the place where we spent most of the time when we were there.
From the pool you have an absolute fantastic view on the surrounding vallys, mountains and small villages.
Gian is a great host, who lives in Perugia, not so close to the house, but who is always willing to give great tips on where to enjoy a nice dinner or which villages and towns to visit in the are. Makes you feel very comfortable from the first minute on !!
i would recommende everybody to stay at this house !!
Words cannot describe our time in Umbria at this villa!
The villa is beautiful. We had three couples, but the property could handle five couples. The views are stunning.
The best part of our stay was our experience with the host Gian. Gian provided us with an exceptional introduction to Umbria. His homegrown knowledge was generously provided and very helpful. He was as genuine and caring as a host could possibly be. His passion for the Umbria countryside, his villa, his friends and food was contagious! He was always willing to help, but was never intrusive. Gian invited us for a tasting at his winery coop where we found excellent white and red wines, and he shared his delicious olive oil with us. He arranged restaurant reservations including a fabulous place on a mountaintop. We would never have found this restaurant on our own. He recommended tours, local festivals, sites to see and villages to visit. One particular highlight was the cooking class with Marta and Gian. What fun! We have wonderful memories of this evening.
This was our first visit to Umbria, but it won’t be our last. And we will come back to this villa. Thank you Gian!
What a wonderful stay!!
We were wowed at first sight with the house’s setting, perched high on a hill with 360’ views of the Umbrian countryside and magical Todi in the distance. The house itself is wonderfully laid out for big families or groups, with separate, private living spaces that also include an upstairs apartment and a poolside cottage.
Our family has stayed in HomeAway and Airbnb homes all over the globe and we have never had such a well-equipped kitchen. There's every appliance you could wish for, including an ice maker. And the best part, it came with a cook! Gian arranged for his chef friend to give us a little cooking class, and Gian and his friend prepared homemade Italian pasta -- our favorite of the entire trip -- and taught us how to make fireside bruschetta. Unforgettable! All while we relaxed with family over wine, feeling so at home.
But by far the most wonderful part of our stay at Torre del Mago was getting to know Gian. Most web rentals are just that -- web rentals. This was totally different. Gian was the most warm and generous host we’ve ever encountered. From arranging for a home- cooked meal, to giving us a tour of the nearby town of Montefalco, to his arranging for the meal of a lifetime for our 50th wedding anniversary celebration. His involvement made our stay so personal and we felt so welcomed. We left Umbria with amazing memories and a new friend.
Perfection in Umbria
The villa is perfectly located about 10 minutes outside of the medieval town of Todi... far enough out to truly be in the quiet countryside, but close enough to town if you forget to get milk at the grocery store or you want to pop in to Todi for a casual dinner. There are magnificent views of the Umbrian countryside from the terrace and from each of the rooms. You also have a great view of Todi on the hillside in the distance. We had a treat one night -- the festival of Santa Maria della Consolazione in Todi ended with a large fireworks display -- we were able to sit on the terrace and watch the fireworks while sipping Grappa and eating fresh figs picked from a local tree.
The house is well equipped. We had chef friends come from Sardinia, and with the tools and space available, incredible meals were prepared - grilled meats, hand made pasta, etc.
But the best part about this place is the host, Gian. From the moment he corresponded with us before our arrival to the goodbyes several weeks later, he was a great host, tour guide and new friend. His family has a long history with the property, so he not only knows the region, but is able to suggest many local spots of interest, from area festivals to restaurants worth a visit. He brought us wine from the local cantina that processes his grapes into white and red wine; and gave us bottles of his wonderful olive oil, which we enjoyed throughout our stay.
We had days in which we arose early to photograph the countryside at dawn and traveled to Tuscany; other days, we hung around the house, each person doing their thing: swimming laps, tanning, reading, working on a laptop, visiting the Sunday flea market in Ponterio, the closest market town. There's plenty of space for everyone. The washer came in handy, and the wifi was very good.
It's a great location from which to make day trips. Over a month's stay, we visited Perugia, Orvieto, Deruta, Chianti, Val d'Orcia with Montepulciano and Montalcino; Spoleto, Assisi, Bevagna, Montecastello di Vibio, Montefalco and the cutest little small village across the valley, Ilci.
If you are planning a trip of a week or more to Umbria, Torre del Mago is a perfect home base.
