I stayed with my extended family at Torre Palombara for a week in May. We booked 4 rooms and totally enjoyed all that the region had to offer.
The B&B was superb, room finishes and fittings were of a 5 star standard, each room had a picturesque view and self contained private bathroom, the service was especially warm and friendly.
When we were looking for accommodation in the area it was hard to ascertain the standard of several places we looked at on the internet (I have had bad experiences in the past in Italy), and coming all the way from Australia we really wanted the accommodation to be special, child friendly, restful with great views of rural Umbria all around and central so we could do day trips discover the secrets of neighboring villages and towns.
We were so pleasantly surprised when we arrived to find the house had recently been lovingly and painstakingly reconstructed and totally refurbished to a first class standard, with every comfort that we enjoy at home. I shared the ground floor self contained apartment with my husband which was perfect for our little baby, it had a self contained kitchen and large bathroom, sitting area and master bedroom, Grandparents, Uncles and Aunties stayed upstairs in the tower.
Most of our time was spent relaxing under the beautiful trees and grape vines, I especially enjoyed the swimming pool and walking adventures through the countryside.
The weather was faultless and the region really made our dream come true of the perfect Italian "Under The Tuscan Sun" vision.... except in Umbria!
We did a pilgrimage to Perugia, the home of Baci chocolates and experienced the annual Medieval festival in Narni and even had time for a day trip to Rome, which was just over an hour away.
It was not just the region that made our time in Umbria so special, Torre Palombara is a very special place that would be just as suitable for a romantic weekend minibreak or a large family holiday.
We will definitely be back - a very special part of the world, still relatively untouched...
