We spent a delightful week at Casale Campodoro in June 2012 which was also excellent value. The location - about 15 mins from Todi - is well located for visiting different parts of Umbria and both the grounds and accommodation are beautifully presented. The garden is full of flowers and fruit trees with lots of spaces for sitting out, the pool is private with a fabulous view and the accommodation is imaginatively furnished with antiques and quirky ornaments and paintings. Our two-room apartment was spacious, comfortable and well-equipped and had an immaculate bathroom. The
B &B rooms were of similar quality. Our hosts, Piero and Carolina, were friendly and extremely helpful about planning trips and local information such as where to eat and park. We had the breakfast one morning which included home-made bread, yoghurt and jams and we were invited to help ourselves to apricots and cherries from the trees.
This is a relaxed, informal place but one which has been created with style, humour and careful attention to detail. We certainly hope to go again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Campodoro was once a typical, stone-built Umbrian farmhouse, today it's a guest-house surrounded by an ample garden with a swimming pool and many cozy corners where one can sit and relax. We have decorated the rooms with antiques coming from our families, and painted them with the colors of the land: yellow, green, blue. Breakfast is served in the garden during the summer, in a room filled with books during the winter, and all our guests sit together around the table, thus having a chance to make new friends. If you wish, we'll be happy to talk to you about the art-cities and to share with you the knowledge of this fascinating region we have acquired. ... more less
