Todi, Province of Perugia, Umbria
Girasole ( Italian for sunflower ) is a lovingly restored farmhouse, nestling on the side of a hill and enjoying spectacular views of rolling hills and fields of sunflowers, cypress trees and olive groves, vineyards and hilltop villages.
This 4 bedroom house also has a beautifully situated pool and offers a magical escape to those who love all the things that make Umbria special: the people, the food, the wine, the scenery, the medieval villages and the Renaissance art.
Girasole is a perfect place to relax amid the peace and tranquility of the countryside. If you want to venture out, you are only 10 minutes drive away from the Etruscan walled town of Todi, which is full of life and locals.
You are also within 30 minutes striking distance of many other lovely places to visit: the hilltop towns of Bettona, Monte Castello del Vibio and Mont...

Girasole is a lovely house. The loggia is the highlight where we ate all of our meals outdoors. We were fascinated by the European bee eaters, which entertained us immensely. The house is exceptionally well equipped. The pool is lovely. We were very private. Todi is a beautiful town. We will certainly go back.

We had a wonderful stay at Girasole with our extended family, consisting of 3 generations. The house has 4 spacious and charming bedrooms with beautiful views of the surrounding rolling hills of the Umbrian countryside, including cypress driveways and sunflower fields. With a kitchen that is equipped for a "Master Chef" candidate and a cosy living room, Girasole is truly...

This is a lovely house, feels very homely and welcoming. The kitchen was the best equipped kitchen I have ever encountered on a holiday let. The house is spacious enough for our teenagers to find places to be away from us when they wanted. We had a lovely time touring the area -Todi and Perugia and Orvieto and then coming...
