“We didn't want to go home!”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

In just a handful of occasions in life, one happens across a very unique location and very special people. Both of these qualities were fulfilled when my wife and I had the pleasure of staying for two wonderful weeks with Alessia and Massimiliano at Agriturismo Acquaviva, Near Todi in Umbria, Italy. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel so welcome and looked after. Alessia and Massimiliano often went the extra mile, helping us whenever they could in arranging visits, such as to vineyards (my Italian needs improvement!), suggesting good walks and chatting with us about the history and culture of the locality.
The accommodation is excellent, very comfortable, well facilitated and so very peaceful. There are extensive grounds to explore, which are beautifully landscaped. Daytime there is a plethora of wildlife to enjoy and at night the skies are full of stars, we even saw fireflies flashing their lights around the trees. The views are stunning and offer an endless supply of subjects for artists.
If you choose to have breakfast included, Alessia's cooking is wonderful and will keep you fuelled for most of the day!
If you like to really get away from it all, find real peace, meet wonderful people, then Agriturismo Acquaviva is for you!

We spent a few days at the Agriturismo Acquaviva and had a fantastic time! The landscape was truly breathtaking, the rooms were really comfortable and exceptionally clean, the view of the Umbrian countryside from the swimming pool would be enough to make one want to stay!!! We would definitely recommend this place to anybody in search of a romantic getaway or who wants to get a feel for just how beautiful Italy can be...

Everything about Agriturismo Acquaviva is beautiful--the location, the people, the food, the view, proximity to other locations. We made it our central lodging and took day trips. The owners, Alessia & Massimiliano, are wonderful hosts, going above and beyond making us feel like part of the family. Betsy & Mircea, USA

Room Tip: All the rooms are great.

My sister and I visited Agriturismo Acquaviva in June of 2010 and stayed 4 nights. We visited the surrounding areas...Todi, Perugia, Bevagna (our favorite), and Orvieto. It was the most beautiful, comfortable, and peaceful place I've ever stayed. Simply awesome!

Agriturismo Acquaviva is our favorite place to be in Italy, where we have traveled 5 times. The setting, with Etruscan/Roman/Medieval Todi across the valley and silhouetted against the hills, is truly stunning. The buildings have been lovingly restored and are both beautiful and comfortable. Anna, Alessia, and Massimiliano are brilliant hosts, providing great tips of food, wine, and tourism as well as the history of the land and the region. Umbria is truly the green heart of Italy and should not be missed on any trip. With a car, wonderful towns such as Montefalco, Bevagna, Spoleto, Deruta, Orvieto, ... are all within easy reach. Each presents unique attributes of architecture, food, wine, and culture and I cannot imagine a better place from which to explore them than Acquaviva. If you are going to Italy and plan to spent some time outside the big cities then you owe it to yourself to consider staying several days at Acquaviva.

I have been visiting Umbria and Italy for over 20 years and conducting artists' workshops at Acquaviva and elsewhere in Italy for over 10 years. I can say without hesitation, that Massimilliano and Alessia at Acquaviva near Todi make for the best accommodations and hospitality that we have ever received. And this is saying something, because throughout Italy, all of our hosts are wonderful. At Ac
quaviva, Alessia and Massimilliano go out of their way to help us with all the details and logistics of transportation and reservations etc., which are often times rather challenging. It is their personal care and love for their cuisine, land and culture that make our stays their truly memorable. Alessia makes each meal a work of art and the dinning becomes an education as she patiently explains about the ingredients and preparation of each dish. The dinning at Acquaviva is truly to die for. Discovering new vegetables and wines makes for a great immersion in all things Italian.
The setting and community room at Acquaviva are perfect for our art classes and even dancing in the evening. The location offers incredible views of Todi and their is an abundance of inspiring landscape within easy drive. We love the access to art history in the area as well. Every year we visit the great art of the Italian Renaissance and Etruscan history in nearby Orvieto, Spoletto, Assisi, Perugia and many other cities.
In short then, Acquaviva offers the quintessential way to experience an authentic and personable stay in the heart of Umbria.

It is not uncommon to spot wild animals as well.
