I have been visiting Umbria and Italy for over 20 years and conducting artists' workshops at Acquaviva and elsewhere in Italy for over 10 years. I can say without hesitation, that Massimilliano and Alessia at Acquaviva near Todi make for the best accommodations and hospitality that we have ever received. And this is saying something, because throughout Italy, all of our hosts are wonderful. At Ac
quaviva, Alessia and Massimilliano go out of their way to help us with all the details and logistics of transportation and reservations etc., which are often times rather challenging. It is their personal care and love for their cuisine, land and culture that make our stays their truly memorable. Alessia makes each meal a work of art and the dinning becomes an education as she patiently explains about the ingredients and preparation of each dish. The dinning at Acquaviva is truly to die for. Discovering new vegetables and wines makes for a great immersion in all things Italian.
The setting and community room at Acquaviva are perfect for our art classes and even dancing in the evening. The location offers incredible views of Todi and their is an abundance of inspiring landscape within easy drive. We love the access to art history in the area as well. Every year we visit the great art of the Italian Renaissance and Etruscan history in nearby Orvieto, Spoletto, Assisi, Perugia and many other cities.
In short then, Acquaviva offers the quintessential way to experience an authentic and personable stay in the heart of Umbria.
