This is a fabulous house that dates back to the 13th century. Entirely renovated and inside the city walls, it has breathtaking views and a large garden. Todi is in the center of Umbria. So it's easy to reach all the other magnificent hill towns. We have just installed a Daikin AC system in all the bedrooms and yes, there are insect screens throughout the house. Oh, and wi-fi is fast and free.

A Romanesque lion's head still in the facade takes you back to the 13th century when this house was built. Our good friend, the great sculptor Beverly Pepper, helped us with the renovation. It is inside the town walls, about 5 min. walk from the main square, so it is conveniently located in terms of shopping. I mean why come to Italy and isolate yourselves in a rural farmhouse? May as well stay in Palo Alto. We wanted to enjoy living amongst the Italians and that is why we chose this house. And yet it is very private and quiet because it is flanked by the apse of the church of S. Prassede on the south-west side, and has a 1,200 sq.ft. garden in front. All the windows have great views of the valley below and the Martani mountains directly east.

Todi is smack in the center of Umbria, one of Italy's most beautiful and artistic regions. (It is much less touristy than neighboring Tuscany.) Todi has about 9,000 inhabitants, with very little industry and rolling hills and farm land all around. It is set on top of a hill, 480 sq. meters above sea level, and is primarily medieval in its architectural make-up.

Another good reason for being in town, apart from enjoying concerts at the theater, exhibitions, cocktails on the square, is the BEST ICE CREAM in the world (as verified by many of our guests). Yes, the Bar Pianegiani, a 10-min. walk up the street.

Six/seven people can sleep comfortably in our home, though over the years we have had many single couples who have enjoyed the space.

If you rent in a season that requires heating we will ask that you reimburse us for the gas and electric consumption which is metered. Same thing in Summer, when the electricity will be metered if you choose to use the AC.

Todi, Umbrien, Italien

Todi is a jewel of a medieval town. Our home is in the Borgo neighborhood, very quiet and secluded. It is the one neighborhood in town that still holds its own celebrations and parades on religious holidays.

My wife, Lynn, and I moved to Italy way back in 1973 after graduating from Beloit College in Wisconsin, where we met. I'm a photographer and Lynn teaches English. For 16 years I was Director of Photography at the Alinari Archives in Florence. I have published many books and have had numerous exhibitions of my work in Europe and in the US. My mother was Italian and I have lots of relatives here. We have two children, William, a pianist/composer who lives in NYC and Alice, a contemporary dancer who lives in London. Both Lynn and I studied English Literature and we still love to read poetry and novels. We love all kinds of music (especially our son's jazz compositions), dance (especially our daughter's), cinema and good food. Lynn is a remarkable chef. We have rented for years and many of our guests have returned to our very special house.

If you rent in a season requiring heat we will ask that you reimburse us for the utilities (gas and elec.) which are metered. Same with Summer if you plan on using the AC. (There are fans in all the bedrooms.)
