Welcome to the Umbria Towerhouse

The perfect holiday destination to celebrate some of the joys and beauties of life.

Umbria Tower House

The Umbria Tower house is the perfect holiday rental house with sleeps up to 10 people, in the beautiful Umbria. This ancient farmhouse with beamed ceilings, fireplaces and terracotta floors has grown room by room over many generations of farming folk. It once housed some fifty people and their animals. The tower dates from as far back as Dante. Easily reached but secluded, its rural character is intact in spite of microwave, central heating and Wi-Fi. There are nooks and books for quiet and solitude even during large family gatherings; a grand piano and a guitar for the musical. It is a little paradise for children who can jump from the waterfall in the gated pool and cavort in three garden areas at different levels, these furnished with a barbeque, benches, outside tables, hammocks and a croquet set.

Umbria the other Tuscany

Still relatively undiscovered, not yet plagued by dense summer crowds, Umbria is the other Tuscany. But it owes nothing to the original in the beauty of its countryside and towns, the richness and variety of its history, art and architecture; of its museums, theatres and music festivals.
