Private villa in Umbria, near Todi: situated in the very heart of the Umbrian countryside,in approximately five acres of enclosed grounds comprising olive groves and well maintained gardens, Domus Romana is an exceptionally elegant country Italian villa with stunning views and an excellent location for visiting several lovely villages and towns.
Stylishly furnished with country antiques and period furniture reminiscent of its rural tradition, Domus Romana offers flexible accommodation split between the main house and separate annex. Full of character and original charm, this villa boasts exposed beamed ceilings, open fireplaces and handmade terracotta floors, so typical of the region. From the terrace and pool area guests can enjoy marvellous 360-degree views over rolling hills and wide open countryside: a blissful backdrop to dining al fresco on meals prepared with fresh ingredients from the vegetable garden.
Although in a secluded location off the beaten track, Domus Romana is well positioned for visiting many of Umbria and southern Tuscany's most fascinating towns and picturesque villages, ensuring many enjoyable day trips to less well-known places. Such towns would include Spello, Trevi, Gubbio, Spoleto and Bevagna - all within easy reach. The nearby village of Casemasce has two small groceries, two small bars for the odd cappuccino and pastry, and a handy petrol station too.
“If you want real luxury in the middle of extensive grounds, unforgettable views and a beautiful, large infinity pool, you cannot go wrong with Domus Romana.
If you base yourselves at this villa you will find it quite easy to visit a number of Italy's best-known towns and cities, all of which offer much to see and do. The pictureque hill town of Todi is only a few miles away: from the villa head down to the Tiber river (a 15-minute drive), then up again to this splendid medieval town (another 5 minutes). Come in July for the spectacular two-week international ballooning competition, or later in the season for the big arts Festival (end of August). If you are here in June or September, go and watch the Quintana, a spectacular costumed jousting tournament in Foligno. If you miss the seaside, head west to the Lago di Bolsena, a crystal clear lake formed in the crater of an extinct volcano. The water is pure enough to drink and the lake teems with fish, some of which are served at the lakeside restaurants. There are volcanic sandy beaches to enjoy, as well as swimming, sailing and boat trips to the islands in the centre of the lake. The crowds haven't discovered it yet, so you won't be struggling through hordes of tourists! Understandably, this villa gets booked up quite quickly.”

We enjoyed our time at Domus Romana enormously
We enjoyed our time at Domus Romana enormously - we think it's a very special place and our guests all thought the same - from our 25-year-old daughter and her boyfriend to two 70-year-old friends who joined us for a few days. There is so much that is special here - the exquisite Umbrian landscape, the wildlife, the sympathetically appointed house, the beautifully landscaped garden, the large pool and its surrounds, the mulberry tree, the swifts and martins over the pool in the late afternoon, the wagtails that come to drink and paddle, Todi, Enoteca Oberdan, Giuseppina, Francesca, Mario ... I could go on. We are packing up today - reluctantly - and we will say a fond farewell tomorrow - we hope until next year.
We loved the villa
We loved the villa as it is very spacious and beautifully decorated. The views are simply stunning. We did not want to leave the property as we enjoyed the pool, the garden and the views too much!
Domus Romana Stay
The villa was more beautiful than the pictures on the website led us to expect. Everything was clean and well-functioning.
