“Great stay, wonderful welcome”
Reviewed January 18, 2009

Our weekend in December was another pleasant stay at this owner run Hotel. We have stayed there many times over the last 5 years and have never been disappointed. This time it was in the red suite. Our favourite rooms. We love the personal welcome, and nothing has ever been a big issue or problem. If you love Italy want a quiet hotel, with English spoken, a pool, close to Todi with good rustic Umbrian food from Local produce.... Then you can't do anything better than Villa Sobrano.

Villa Sobrano was a disappointment. From the website and publicity, which highlight Villa Sobrano's menu, my husband and I expected to be staying at an agriturismo, a working farm at which we could eat local food. But when we arrived and asked what time dinner was served, the owner told us without explanation (or apology) "We are not serving dinner this week." She was quite brusque and dismissed our obvious disappointment by pointing to a paper with recommendations for two restaurants in Todi (a lovely hill town).
Villa Sobrano is a small hotel with spacious rooms and lovely grounds adjacent to catering facilities which seem to occupy the owners' attention far more than guests in rooms. The housekeeper and the groundskeeper were both warm and helpful, which helped mediate the rudeness of the proprietress. Breakfast both mornings consisted of recycled stale pastries from the previous day. Not a good sign about what dinner would have been, so maybe we were fortunate that it wasn't being served?
If you want to see Todi and stay at an agriturismo with excellent food and a warm welcome, I recommend Antica Fattoria del Colle, outside of Deruta. It was everything Villa Sobrano is not.

  • Liked — the grounds and views the Umbrian countryside
  • Disliked — brusque treatment by the proprietress

Beautiful villa near Todi. Our stay in the green room was wonderful. It is spacious with great old world charm. Lidia the owner is gracious and helpful. Florie, her housekeeper was kind and loved to bake wonderful treats. Todi is a beautiful hill city and close to Perugia, Assisi, Spoledo, Orvieta. October, November is a great time to visit. The weather was still warm and the tourists are gone! This was our first time travelling without children and it was a perfect time of year. Museums are not crowded and it is easy to find great restaurants etc. It was nice having a base and not moving luggage from town to town.

Lidia had great recommendations for local restaurants and she is revered by the towns people. It was really nice to stay in a smaller hill town and get to know the local restaurants etc.

It was a very comfortable place to stay...
