About the Owner
About Iain Laurie
Jane and I bought this house in June 2009 after several years of searching in the area. Umbria is known as the green heart of Italy and it is beautiful. We love Italy, traveled it extensively and wanted a family property for ourselves and our family. We hope you enjoy it and the region as much as we do. The house has been set up as a family home and please enjoy it as such. Both our daughters got engaged here. One under the Mulberry tree and one under the portico. So magic things happen in Umbria. But above all we hope you like the relaxed atmosphere and beautiful panorama.

Why Iain Laurie chose Umbria
We love Todi and have made good friends there. The view of Todi from the house was such a bonus. Each day and time makes for a different panorama. We love the location and its easy to get to. With Orvieto, Rome, Assisi and Spoleto all within easy access there is plenty to see.
