We stayed at Torre Palombara for 4 nights over the May bank holiday and after seeing the pictures on the website we could not wait to see it for ourselves.
Torre Palombara is about an hour drive from Rome. When we arrived we were stunned; the villa, grounds and location are beautiful. Walking up to the house past the swimming pool we were met by our hosts who throughout our stay were extremely charming, friendly, helpful and welcoming and happy to share their local knowledge and provide any help we needed. The villa has been beautifully restored and is tasteful and elegant. We stayed in the lovely apartment “La Colombaia” at the top of the house and were lucky enough to enjoy our own private balcony overlooking the lush Umbrian countryside.
During our short stay we explored Umbria as much as possible visiting Assisi, Spoleto, Marmore waterfall and the nearby ancient hilltop town of Narni (a 10 min drive away). Our stay in Narni coincided with a medieval festival which saw the town lively with people and street entertainment. We found our stay in Torre Palombara very restful, secluded and tranquil, yet within very easy reach of nearby towns and some amazing restaurants.
Basically - great villa, great location, great hosts, great food… we loved it so much we have booked again for September and are already counting the days!
