“Absolutely fantastic!”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Staying at Torre Palombara is a wonderful experience! The owner, Leonardo, and his mother was incredible, as was the luxuriuos accomodation and surrounding villages. We went for 3 nights and will definitely stay over here again if we every have the opportunity. Leonardo helped us with places to visit and we had fantastic dinner(s) in Stroncone at a true Italian restaurant (we went back on the last night). Narni had a midieval festival on the Saturday evening which was entertaining.

Torre Palombara has excellent facilities to relax and wind down (a fabulous pool area, wireless internet and a lounge area). The rooms, the pool, the vineyards, the hospitality... we will visit again in the near future!

The owner, Leonardo, was incredible, as was his villa....his staff created an incredible meal the first night...we sampled wine from his vineyard and he even drove us to a local restaurant one night so we wouldn't get lost.

Ive never stayed in a more beautiful setting....the pool, the rooms, the view of the vineyard and rolling countryside.....i cant wait to go back

This hotel is absolutely fantastic. We loved here everything, even our search of the hotel for 3 hours worth it! We spent a week traveling allover Lazio and Toscana and fell in love only with Torre Palombara. It has special family atmosphere. Leonardo is very hospitable owner and good person.
We’ve booked two-storeyed room with terrace and romantic view for 230 euro. Breakfast was very delicious ala carte and buffet with appetizers, fruits and pastries. The hotel doesn’t have its own restaurant, but nearby there is a great small town called Narni. Thanks to Leonardo who recommended us visiting this fantastic place. During this period (beginning of may) in Narni is arranged a medieval festival and it is really breathtaking.
I recommend this place for everyone!

If you should feel a little bit wary reading all those rave reviews, you needn´t be. Staying in Torre Palombara really is a wonderful experience. For one thing, the surrounding countryside and vistas are truly wonderful, and the place itself has been lovingly reconstructed by Leonardo and his family. We had fantastic time and Leonardo provided every kind of advice one might need and kept us company during evenings, proving to be a magnificent host in every kind of way. If you are planning to spend time in Umbria, you shouldn´t miss Torre Palombara.

We stayed here for 4 nights in early May and agree wholeheartedly with all the previous rave reviews. For some of the time we were the only guests which meant we had the undivided attention of Leonardo and nothing was too much trouble. The spread on the breakfast buffet was sumptuous.
The only problem for a light sleeper is the volume of birdsong which wakes you at dawn!

This is going to be difficult to write without sounding hysterical, but this has been the most pleasant stay I've ever experienced. The property itself is family-owned and run. It has been authentically renovated, but doesn't feel stilted; it's cosy and welcoming. Our room was a superior room; it was hard to leave.
When we were there, the weather was terrible, so we couldn't take advantage of the many patio areas facing onto the green Umbrian countryside. We were given invaluable advice for restaurants and towns to visit, and it was needed. Suffice to say, we'll be back. I have to try that pool!

Tip: You need a car in Umbria; (we kind of forgot that) but there is car rental available in Terni, which isn't too far away

The one thing we knew we had to do after coming from our Italian vacation is to write something about Torre Palombara where we stayed and used as base while visiting the Umbrian region. Our whole family is still reminiscing about its breathtaking views, comfortable suites, beautiful landscaping and magnificent pool. It is perfectly situated on a hilltop surrounded by orchards and farmland. Our 2 boys who are ages 8 and 6 loved the pool and enjoyed running around the property looking for the family cat. Torre is such an oasis; we felt safe with them exploring on their own. Our experience at Torre was made even more special because of Leonardo's exceptional hospitality. He is very knowledgeable about the region and gave us advice on how to plan our sightseeing. He sent us to a restaurant in Strancone where we had the most delicious dinner of our Italian trip. He went out of his way to make us feel welcome and shared the history of the building and his family with such pride. He was so helpful he even took a trip to Terni to buy an Italian charger for one of our son's Nintendo DSI when he found out the charger we brought wasn't working. The one thing we regret is not having stayed 2 or 3 more days longer. We can't wait to go back next time we're in Italy!
