Torre la Cupa

(x 6 people)

Sleeps 6 | Bedrooms 5 | Bathrooms 3 | Near Todi, Umbria

Independent villa | Private pool | Maid included |

Overview

Torre La Cupa has been growing, room by room, since the 14th century. Originally constructed as a lookout tower, the building later came into use as a colonica, a farmhouse, and each successive generation of farmers added on space as needed. The result is a charming country home full of unexpected corners and pleasant for both small and large parties. Inside its thick stone walls the book-filled rooms have preserved their beamed ceilings and terracotta floors, and have been very tastefully decorated in a warm and welcoming style. A pretty flagstone courtyard outside the kitchen is furnished with a dining table for al fresco meals. Beautiful views of the hills around Lake Corbara, between Orvieto and Todi, can be seen from the windows, the garden and the lovely pool area set at the edge of the garden.

Clients reviews

There are not enough words to describe our visit to Tore Le Cupa. From the moment we reserved this slice of heaven, it was an experience. The owners were wonderful to work with. This was my daughter's first trip out of the States, and my husband and I work in Afghanistan. I wanted somewhere magical for Charlotte and Will (daughter and son-in-law), and we spent months pouring over rentals, but we kept coming back to Torre. From the moment we arrived, I could let down my hair so to speak and relax, 2 weeks here, cooking, wandering the grounds, playing in the pool. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to be where there is peace and quiet. The owners made such an impression on my child she has asked friends to go together .......It was the best vacation I have ever had.

The house was restored perfectly, while maintaining its 1700 Umbrian style.

Thank you so much for a wonderful week, all too short, and we wish we were staying longer. Our first experience of Umbria has been made all the more memorable by the warmth of your welcome and the opportunity to share your wonderful home….Thank you so much for the drinks - we thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to put the world to rights….We hope it is not to long before we see you again.

Words cannot begin to express the joy and beauty of this place. Truly "heaven on earth" We have absolutely loved every minute of our stay. Your warmth and friendship from the moment we arrived adds an extra "bonus" to our memories. We all said at dinner last night that our cocktails with you two were the highlight of our time here. We now wish we could extend our stay another week. We love your home and we love Umbria. Thank you so much for all your kindness (especially to Dan when he was sick).

We don't quite know how to put our feelings into words when it comes to how much this holiday and your home have meant to us. After spending literally months of searching we found what we hoped would be an ideal villa for our time in Italy; what an understatement that turned out to be. On arrival the tears in my mum's eyes said it all; your house is truly breathtaking, and has played a huge part in our enjoyment these past two weeks. We have devoured books from your library, we have enjoyed cooking and dining al-fresco.suffice it to say your home has been like our home and for that and your wonderful hospitality, we thank you. Away from the house we have all loved exploring Umbria and, on occasion, Tuscany. I think that all 6 of us will each have our own special and favourite memories.We fell in love with Orvieto in particular, but even driving up and through the mountains was a journey of discovery - everywhere you turn you find beautiful villages, scenery and people. We could not have asked for anything more from our first trip to Italy. We hope to see you again,

What an amazing home you have. Your location is ideal with lots of land, lovely gardens and a fantastic pool. We were disappointed that we didn't get to meet you, but hopefully we will be able to return and meet you in the future. Being here in this house has made this trip one that we will all remember forever. As soon as we walked in we felt like we were at home, and we fell in love with your home. Thank you both so much.

Our expectations of the villa where blown out of the water as soon as we set foot through the door- FANTASTIC! What a treat to stay in a home, not a holiday house. We have so enjoyed the house and gardens and all the wonderful surprises the house has to offer. We fell in love with the place at first sight and dread our departure! The house and garden are magical and we have enjoyed just being here as well as visiting some of the surroundung villages and towns! The swimming pool has been a joy and a friendly "battleground" for our ball game! A truly wonderful week.Many thanks It's going to be very hard to leave, we definetely hope to be back.

We returned to crisp days of autumn in New York, but the memories of torre la Cupa and the mountains of Umbria glow warmly inside us still. What a lovely holiday we had. (...)The villa was everything we had hoped it would be- charming and tastefully appointed, without feeling overly formal or precious in any way. Morning swims in the pool were an invigorating start to our days and sunset cocktails on the terrace brought our adventures to an appropriately pastoral conclusion.

The location was really great for our day trips to the hilltowns of Umbria. The house was filled with wonderful antiques and beautifully decorated. We really enjoyed meeting the owner only to find she was leaving a day after our arrival.
