Overview

About the property

Perched on a hillside Villa Alle Querce is a charming, restored stone country property commanding stunning distant views towards the beautiful hilltop town of Todi. Alle Querce is reached via a leafy dirt road climbing upwards and is set against a magnificent backdrop of oak forest, its seclusion providing relaxed and peaceful surroundings . A shaded pergola, overlooking the lawned areas of the garden and large swimming pool, provides a pleasant setting for eating out of doors. The terrace is equipped with its’ own outdoor oven, hob and barbecue area, making alfresco dining a real pleasure. The private gardens are ideal for families and couples alike, with plenty of space and a large pool (17 x 4.5 m.) which is visible from the shaded terrace.

The garden is a profusion of rosemary, lavender and roses surrounded by olive trees, cypresses and oaks. The house is comfortably furnished reflecting the taste of the owner and thoroughly in keeping with the farmhouse aspect of the property.

Todi, is 5 km from the house . The towns of Perugia and Orvieto are both about 30-40 minutes drive, Assisi 45 minutes, Spoleto may be reached in about 50 minutes. The Umbria countryside is the very heart of Italy. An intense calendar of artistic (like Umbria Jazz Festival every July), cultural and enogastronomic events can be experienced in summer time.

About SERGIO ROVETTA

Before retiring I was a doctor and my wife a journalist. We live in Rome and Villa alle Querce is our countryhouse, that we use mostly in spring and autumn

Why SERGIO ROVETTA chose Todi

Many years ago we were looking for a place in the country , not far from Rome, with a nice landscape, near historical town. We wanted to have quiet time, to read , have a pool, grow fruit trees and olive trees. We found all this near Todi, in this place.

What makes this villa unique

The house is surrounded by the wood, the view of Todi is wonderful, sunset heartbreaking, the pergola an invitation to drinking and sociality, the pool an invitation to swim.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

To be honest, I'm a bit wary about singing the praises of the beautiful Villa Alle Querce too much incase it gets so booked up that we may miss out in future!

I am a mum, 3 kids under 9, travelling with my Mother, Aunt & hubby travelling in and out - the house is just perfect for a couple of families or several people - so much space so no one is under each other's feet - beautiful bedrooms + FANS! Thank goodness - considering it was 40degrees whilst we were there. The lawn out the back was my middle boy's dream - cricket, skittles, football, races all took place daily - the pool is stunning, so refreshing and very clean. The pergola out the back was home to our daily lunches and dinners with various friends from around the area - perfect for large parties! Especially when our meals are made up of the figs in the garden, and the tomatoes and basil from the veggie patch.

I have rented a villa every year for the past decade, amongst the Todi countryside, and can easily say this was my and my children's favourite. Perfectly placed for Todi, the supermarket, our friends and of course the lovely Rosa Dei Venti for a sneaky pizza.

I would love to come back and just hope I am organised enough to get in there before anyone else gets in!

P.S. Lorena (who helps around the house) and Sergio were wonderfully accommodating. Thank you!

Marvellous Country House

  • 5 of 5

Villa Alle Querce is a very spacious farmhouse in a spectacular landscape. It offers supreme privacy and a stunning view over the valley to Todi. The large pool (almost 20m) in the back and the cosy pergola invite to relax. Despite the fact, that there is no aircon available, the temperatures inside the house were comfortable, even at 38 degrees outside. The friendly owners welcomed us personally and we felt comfortable from the very first minute.

Over all, we had a perfect relaxing holiday in Italy.

Charming and relaxed. A wonderful house with amazing views of Todi and a fabulous pool and gardens

  • 5 of 5

Arriving from London for a two week holiday we were all over the moon with this house. It is charming and relaxed and very easy to be in. There is a lovely pool and places to sit in both the front and the back. Inside the rooms are cool and there is enough room for all of us. There is a good kitchen with a dishwasher and washing machine. Outside there is another cooking area with a brilliant BBQ.

The house is up a bumpy track which is great fun to drive down. Although we managed one week without a car this meant that we spent the first week at the house as it is quite remote. So a car is needed in order to explore the many towns and cities around the house.

Our group ranged in age from 9 to 50 and everyone had a great time. Our welcome was wonderful and we felt incredibly well looked after. Selfishly I don't want to let anyone else know about this fabulous house!

Owner's Response: Alice and her family have been lovely guest. I think they have really enjoyed the house and the place. Just to specify, when Alice says, that the house is quite remote , it is at 6 km from the center of Todi and 700 mt. from a provincial road, but, I agree with her , is a country house in the quiet of an oak wood and olive trees and a car is of course necessary for reaching the place , visit Umbria's towns and villages and enjoy the staying .

Apart of Todi ( 5 km) all the more attractive towns of the region ( Perugia, Orvieto, Assisi, Spoleto, Montefalco and so on are from 30 minutes to one hour max of driving). The Umbria countryside is the very heart of Italy. An intense calendar of artistic (like Umbria Jazz Festival every July), cultural and enogastronomic events can be experienced in summer time.
