Il ghiottone umbro

Ever wished for a good friend with a nice house in a medival umbrian hill town with great views over the rolling landscape.

One who knows the way to all the great local restaurants, the best wine producers and historic sights.

One who enjoys the simplicity, honesty and fantastic taste of the italian kitchen and wine.

One who pays attention to every detail and caters to all your needs.

Well - now you have such a friend - Il Ghiottone Umbro...

News from Todi


Introducing the couple weekend - book any long weekend of the year - and enjoy 3 nights stay in double room, the homemade breakfast, welcome dinner and market visit with following pasta cooking lesson....just € 800 per couple.....write to us for more info and available dates.

Summer is still on - but you feel a difference - the August heatwave is over and the nights are getting slightly cooler - slowly the good produce of the autumn is hitting the markets - the pumpkins are here, and first cavolo nero and we might not need to wait too long, before we see the first artichokes.

The wine harvest is in full swing - crate after crate of super ripe grapes are taken to the cantina - this year the grapes are beautiful but small - it has simply been too warm and dry - but the grapes are packed with sugar - so a strong vintage, but low yields and not so much accidity.

Umbria is beautiful in the fall - come and visit us.

Carissimi saluti
