Early September 2008 at Torre Palombara will be etched in our memories forever. Although at first the setting seemed rather rustic, tucked in the middle of beautiful Umbrian hills, the location was actually perfect for us. Terni and Narni are just 15 min. away for town dining and a variety of roadways are just waiting to take you to amazing historical towns, vineyards, Maremore Falls, and Etruscan and ancient Umbrian structures. Torre Palombara sits on a hill overlooking fields and forests, with a picturesque view of Narni. The restoration of the 13th-14th century dove tower is impressive, as are the suites, terraces, lounging and dining rooms, and outdoor living spaces. We swam every morning (incredible views) after a lovely breakfast in a serene setting. Our host, Leonardo, along with his gracious mother, introduced us to so much more than an incredible place to stay. Their generous spirits and sincere love of Umbria gave us a unique experience that included talking about cars, food, grapes, wine production, Umbrian history, and so much more. We learned where to shop for the best ceramics, linens, olive oil, etc. and were able to explore every day with our rental Alpha Romeo and return to fabulous outdoor dining with Narni's lit tower across the valley. Our week at Torre Palombara was one of the most relaxing and enchanting times of our lives.
