“A great escape, stunning views, a wonderful break”
Reviewed 20 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We stayed for a short break and were impressed by the property, the stunning views and the wonderful pool. A great place to unwind and relax
Would recommend it to anyone wanting to enjoy the tranquility of the Umbrian countryside yet be close to the sites.

“Lovely property with stunning views”
Reviewed 10 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed in La Torretta for 14 nights recently and loved every minute of our time there. We were the first guests to swim in the lovely new pool. The house is beautiful, really well equipped amongst amazing surroundings. The view from the terrace at night with the fireflies lighting up and the lights from Papiano and the Tiber valley in the distance was so relaxing.
It is a great base to travel to all the nearby towns, Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto, Gubbio, Marmore falls, and there are many more.
Dealing with the owners, John and Janet, during the booking process was a pleasure.
We will definitely return to La Torretta, we have lots more places to visit in Umbria.

“Somewhere to relax”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 for a stay in August 2013

person found this review helpful

We had a fantastic 2 weeks at La Torretta in August 2013.
It was a great base to explore Umbria, and the surrounding area.
The highlights were Perugia, including a great tour of the Perugina factory, Spoleto , Assisi and Siena.
We also enjoyed a day trip to Rome, driving down to Terni and catching the train into Rome from there.
But most of all La Torretta was a place for us to relax, sit out on the terrace with a good book and recharge the batteries, in stunning surroundings.

“A gorgeous property with an amazing view!”

We thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay at La Torretta. The house sits on a hilltop overlooking the medieval village of Papiano and has an amazing view up the valley. It was extremely well equipped and an excellent base to visit Perugia, Orvieto, Todi, Terni and the Marmore Falls. It was our first stay in Umbria and hopefully it won't be the last.

“Amazing property”

This is a wonderful property in a stunning location. It is a very spacious almost new villa that has been furnished and fitted to a very high standard. The views all round are beautiful and the terrace is a perfect place to sit and enjoy them with a glass of wine. We loved every minute of our stay here and only wished we had booked for longer. There are so many places to visit in the area and all very convenient to the villa. We hated to leave at the end of our holiday and hope to return some time in the future.
