- A Traveler Recommendation:
It was the magnificent view across the Tiber valley to Todi nestling on the hilltop that first drew us to La Torriola. The charming reception afforded to us by multilingual owner Maurizio Giannini and his family, the quality of the facilities, including a beautiful pool, firm and comfortable beds, and the tranquility of the location have drawn us back again and again – for 6 consecutive years. There are five apartments set in spacious and well-tended grounds and the property has its own olive grove. The owners live in Todi. Maurizio – a lawyer by training – worked for many years in regional development and their love of Umbria is reflected in a host of recommendations for places to see and delightful local restaurants that no tourist guide has yet discovered. The inestimable attractions of Todi are 5 minutes away by car – not for nothing was this place selected in a U.S. study as offering “the best quality of life” anywhere on earth. But there's nothing quite like waking up to find a panoramic view of the place from your bed!
