Torre Bertona's Domus Picta is located in a charming historical building just a 5 minute drive from Todi. With beautiful views of this historical town, it boasts a peaceful location among olive groves, ideal for creative thinking, but is at the same time freeway-close and absolutely convenient for visiting central Italy. The tower (Torre), transformed during the 16th century in a summer residence, belonged for centuries to a noble family who used to spend there the hot season. The apartment is bright, elegant and finely decorated with great attention to details , and can comfortably accommodate up to four people. You will enjoy the wide panor...amic terrace with its old pergola, ideal for al fresco dining or for reading in a context of quiet and beauty, the beautiful swimming pool in the nice terraced garden with aromatic herbs and old roses, the fresh ground floor lodge and the Jacuzzi spa situated in the elegant relax room opening on the patio.
Torre Bertona is the ideal location for a romantic vacation for couples!
The community sporting center at Pontenaia (about 2 ml) offers tennis courts, a football pitch and other sport facilities. Some other tennis courts are in Todi, near the main Parking called Porta Orvietana. Horse riding is very popular and you can go to the Circolo Ippico Tuderte (2 ml) for horseback trekking or riding lessons. Torre Bertona is also part of the Tiber Natural Park and of 'Circuiti del Paesaggio' / 'Landscape Circuits' of Todi and a starting point for easy walks and horse trekking. From the historical nearby village of Pian di San Martino (0,5 ml) also starts a cycling circuit called 'Tevere ring' : the river Tevere (Tiber) is indeed very close to it, and a nice trip is the one to the river canyons.

Host service is friendly and take car of your need in an excellent way, especially to tell you how to reach the place.
Spa service is small but cozy and perfect for couple relaxing. Don't miss it

Gli appartamenti di Torre Bertona sono veramente bellissimi. Ci siamo trovati molto bene nei nostri 3 in Umbria. L'accoglienza è stata delle migliori e il servizio è veramente impeccabile. Speriamo di tornare presto ad alloggiare in questo posto meraviglioso. Grazie!
we always welcome well behaved pets!
Torre Bertona features a WiFi Internet connection. Sometimes, due to the thickness of the stone walls, the connection upstairs can be feeble or absent, but in the common room on the ground floor, whose key is given to every guest, the WiFi connection is always available

La struttura si trova in campagna, immersa nella natura e nella pace, a pochi passi da Todi. E' l'ideale per godere di un sano relax e allo stesso tempo per potersi spostare nelle località vicine senza fare troppi km. Abbiamo alloggiato nell'appartamento al primo piano: ampio, luminoso e davvero ben arredato e accessoriato. Ogni particolare è stato curato con la massima grazia e cortesia, la stessa cortesia che abbiamo riscontrato nella sig.ra Gloria e nel suo collaboratore Vittorio, sempre disponibili ad ascoltare le esigenze del cliente e a suggerire mete e locali dove andare.
Nella struttura non manca niente e si gode della piena autonomia nell'utilizzo del locali comuni (come la zona benessere con Jacuzzi!) e del giardino circostante..davvero un piccolo paradiso in terra!
Per chi volesse trascorrere delle vacanze a Case di Torre Bertona non potrei che dare solo un suggerimento: preparare la valigia e partire!
