Location & area
*** UMBRIA: The Heart of Italy! The Umbria region,called The Green Heart of Italy,due to its central location and equal distance from Rome and Florence,is a beautiful,unspoiled countryside area of rolling,forested hills,vast grassy meadows covered with flowers,large olive grove plantations,several lakes and valleys.The landscape is dotted with many picturesque medieval villages,the people of the area are known for their distinctive cuisine,friendliness and hospitality.Food,wine,entertainment are the core of Umbria's charm.
TODI. 5 miles away from the villa, is the old town of Todi, founded by the Umbrians (some cite the date 2700 BC). Situated in ancient times on the border between the Etruscan and Umbrian territories, not far from Rome and Florence, Todi has been defined as the most livable town on earth, the "ideal town" by research of the University of Kentucky for its size, its climate, its hilltop location and for its harmonious relationship to its surroundings. A striking artistic center in a magnificent position dominating the Tiber valley, celebrated for its Roman and Etruscan remains, for its palaces, its churches and its suggestive medieval environment. Picturesque winding streets, stone buildings, medieval wells, arches, sudden ascents and descents that create various prospective and sudden views of faraway valleys, hills and mountains all contribute to Todi's unique fascination. In the center of town is the long rectangular Piazza del Popolo, considered to be one of the most beautiful squares in Italy, onto which face the Palazzo dei Priori, Palazzo del Popolo and Palazzo del Capitano all originally 13th cent. civic buildings, and the 11th-12th cent. Duomo. The Temple of S.M. della Comsolazione (16th-17th cent), built to a plan by Bramante is one of Italy's finest Renaissance Churches. The newly restored Museo Civico e Pinacoteca houses important pieces ranging from rare Etruscan coins to 16th c. Italian paintings. In Todi you can find many cultural events and exhibitions. The annual Todi Festival hosts avant-garde music, dance and film productions. An antiques fair takes place every spring. Many celebrated artists and artisans of the whole world live and have their studios in Todi. The town is rich in art galleries, craft-shops (ceramic,carving,), antiques dealers and restorers. You can enjoy the world-renown Umbrian cusine in many characteristic restaurants (some of the most famous in Italy) and tipycal food shops: truffles/wines/olive oils.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
