Why adriano antonioli chose Monte Castello di Vibio
It was a love at first sight; the structure of the farmhouse with an incorporated dovecote tower, the dominant position with a wonderful view of Todi and the surrounding countryside, the easy road connection and the general context. All elements that convinced us to make this property our home of dreams, hoping to ensure even guests unique emotions, as it was for us. Discovering an Italy suspended in time and unique territories.
What makes this Villa unique
We decided to buy this house by car traveling in the area. We had relatives in Umbria and turning among the most beautiful and unspoiled countryside we found this farmhouse to renovate. It took many years, a lot of passion (and also a lot of economic effort!), but it came out a structure that reconciles with the world. Far from the smog, from the incessant rhythms of production, from factories and from speeds, here we enter in another universe, in another order of values and feelings. The stone structure that takes you back to other times, the park outside among olive trees, oaks and fruit trees, which speaks of an authentic beauty. Finally, to crown the whole, the private pool, the comfort of the structure and the beautiful view of the surrounding countryside, among the most beautiful in Italy.

Fantastic property, pool and location!
We were 2 families staying together for 2 weeks in August 2019. The farmhouse is fantastic with plenty of space for everyone to mix as a big group or break out into smaller groups.
It’s location is brilliant, a 20 minute walk to the local village (Monte Castello di Vibio), a 7 minute drive to the supermarket near Todi and less than 15 minutes to Todi itself. Further afield Perugia and Assisi are only 45 minutes drive and Rome/Fiumicino is only 90 minutes.
Back to the Farmhouse....
The terrace and BBQ were well used and there was not one day when we didn’t spend plenty of time in the pool.
There were a few nights when we would have appreciated some Air Conditioning, but this is the only criticism and to be fair the weather spiked at 42 degrees C for a few days.
The owner was very responsive to questions we raised before travelling out which was very much appreciated.
Finally, the housekeeping team were really brilliant, they showed us where everything was, and were often there first thing in the morning making sure the pool was clean and ready to go for the day.
We’ll definitely be back...
Lovely well equipped house
We loved this house and the nearby village of Castello Di vibio, which is a charming very traditional hill top town.
We were perfectly located being no more than 50 minutes drive from umbria best towns.
A lovely house, beautiful gardens and surroundings fields, with a wonderful pool.
The house has been most successfully restored with lots of separate rooms in which to relax in the shade or sleep. The master bedroom and bathroom are particularly attractive. We used the barbeque most nights and ate outside for all meals, making use of trees or the shade cast by the house to rest in the heat of the day. The planting of the pool area is very pretty with the scent of lavender and rosemary wafting through the air as you swim.
A great bonus was the care and attention provided by Francesca and Giancarlo, who not only met us at Montecastello di Vibio and led the the way to the house, but came to our aid after a major electrical storm resulted in a 12-hour power cut, even carried out a mid-week clean of the pool, and brought home grown vegetables. Grazie mille per tutto Francesca e Giancarlo!
The location is excellent for exploring the hill towns of Umbria and we had day trips to Todi, Perugia, Assisi, Montefalco, and Spoleto - all stunning.
Speriamo di tornare presto al questa casa bellissima e di rivedere Francesca e Giancarlo,
We're glad you enjoyed the House and that you had a pleasant holiday.
We hope that the memory of your trip, simplicity and kindness of Francesca and Giancarlo, and the scent of lavender and Rosemary which surround the House, will remain for a long time in your memories, even in York.
Thanks for all.
Phantische Lage, sehr ruhig. Parkartiger Garten mit großem, gepflegten Pool. Frisches Obst aus dem Garten (Feigen, Pfirsiche). Viele Sehenswürdigkeiten Umbriens sind in maximal 1 Std. Autofahrt zu erreichen. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Restaurants in der Nähe.
Wir 5 Erwachsenen haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und wären gern noch länger geblieben.
(Text automatically translated) The house is easily accessible from the E-45 motorway (PERUGIA-CESENA) coming out in Montecastello / Fratta Todina or from the A1 motorway exit at Orvieto and follow the signs to Todi.
(Text automatically translated) The house, whose original nucleus dates back to the '400, is set in an enchanting location at the foot of the medieval village of Monte Castello di Vibio from which you can enjoy the views of the most beautiful of the Italian countryside. Every year from spring to late summer the village is frequented by professors and students of a school of American art just to be inspired by the beauty and charm of the landscape. For those who love good food and good wine will not miss a dinner at the "grotto of Uncle Toto" in the ancient village where Massimo and his family will make you taste the traditional Umbrian cuisine revisited with passion and skill. Another good restaurant in the value for money is "nuts" which is located in the village of Grutti approx. 15 km. away from the house and the "Mulinella" located at the foot of Todi. For other suggestions do not hesitate to contact me, I will be happy to suggest places and things worthy of a visit.
