About Torricella

Torricella enjoys far reaching views, a stunning private pool, gardens, woodland walks, tranquility and beauty. It is suitable for families or groups.


This sympathetically restored hilltop farmhouse has sweeping views of the valley below. Torricella offers the perfect Italian villa experience, with its beautiful farmhouse kitchen, adjoining loggia for eating al fresco, a wonderful drawing room with enormous fireplace, and a stunning pool.

Restored by a local builder and craftsmen, using reclaimed materials where possible, the house incorporates energy saving systems to minimize the impact on the environment.  While remaining true to its Umbrian farmhouse roots, Torricella provides luxurious holiday living, and is equipped with all the modern amenities.  Very spacious, with plenty of communal areas, it has four main bedrooms, and two additional rooms with sofa beds.  For children there are cots, high chairs and a buggy, as well as an abundance of games for all ages.  The grounds surrounding the house are wonderful for walking in.

For those who like to combine relaxation with sightseeing, there are many picturesque towns within easy driving distance such as Cortona, Città di Castello and Perugia.

For the adults, think of wine tastings, cooking courses and so much more.


About The Owners

Torricella is owned by Iain and Sophie and their three children.  We were lucky enough to be posted to Naples for three years and immediately fell in love with Italy.  It was towards the end of our stay there, after having travelled all over Italy, that we decided Umbria was where we wanted to put down roots.

Torricella, even in its dilapidated state, was all that we were looking for in an Italian house.  A four-year restoration project brought it back to life and has given us a family home in the most wonderful setting.  Although we currently live in Brussels, we intend to live permanently in Torricella one day, sharing this special place with family and friends.

Torricella provides the perfect holiday location for families with young children or teenagers, and for groups of friends.
