Description from owner

Distances: in historic centre of Roman and Medieval Todi, about 180 m from main square Piazza del Popolo and all shops, banks, chemist’s, restaurants; 50 m from nearest bus stop, from free car park for residents, about 600 m from free town car park ; 4 Km from Todi train station and exit of the E45 highway that crosses Umbria; about 40 Km from major Umbrian towns like Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto, Spoleto and Gubbio; about 50 Km south of Perugia airport; 120 Km north of Rome and 200 Km from Rome Fiumicino airport

Description: This apartment is included in a 3-story Roman and Medieval house that hosts only 2 apartments in total and which is set back from the street in a small nice courtyard, a 3-minute walk to Todi’s main square, with its 12th century cathedral, town hall, clustering of outdoor cafes and frequent cultural events. All of Umbria stretches out below you from the windows. Owned by an Italian painter in early 20th century who decorated the ceilings of the majestic buildings in the square and then by a great Pulitzer-prize poet, the house still keeps the charm of the Roman and Medieval times: the nice outdoor landing in front of the main door where you can sit and enjoy the view of a typical Medieval street and courtyard, the old arches, vaults and the Roman well in the basement, the imposing century-old wooden beams and terracotta tiles of the ceilings and floors. People love the house not only for its charm but also for its privacy while being so close to the square. The apartment and the whole house were restored in 2006 by retrieving all original materials, such as terracotta tiles on the floors, massive wooden beams on the ceilings, stone walls, stone fireplaces

FEATURES: from the main street a few steps lead down into the typical courtyard and back up to the communal 7- sq m large outdoor landing/balcony (with nice wrought iron table and chairs) and the main door

The Apartment 130 sq m NET area (first/second floor)

On the ground floor the main door to the apartment leads to the upper floor to through the typical original terracotta staircase.

LEFT WING: Spacious living/dining room with leaning roof and visible wooden beams, local white stone fireplace and panoramic windows overlooking the rolling hills that stretch towards Perugia, splendid town that on clear days can be seen from here.

Next to the living room is the double/twin bedroom. A few steps lead to the "tower" hosting the marble bathroom (bath tub, large shower, sink, bidet, WC).
