Perfect place, atmosphere and people
we stayed 8 gorgeous nights in this paradise. we usually travel to small italian small towns and stay in agriturismos. this was one of the best. best location to stay if you are going to visit umbria. 200m. to main road E45 and 5km. to Todi. very nice bedroom witha comfortable and big bed. a roomy bathroom and a cozy and charming living room with a small kitchen enclosed for our nightly italian pastas and salads. Gloria and Luisa were very helpful with everything.
Perfect gateway if you are willing to scape from big hotels and stay at the umbrian hills.
wonderful place, amazing hospitality
A nice and comfortable apartment sited in a silent country location few miles away from Todi (reachable in 10 minute by car)
The apartment has a small living room with kitchen and a comfortable bedroom. Perfect place to relax during summer or "pied a terre" for visiting the nearby middle age towns.
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

Esperienza molto soddisfacente, sicuramente da rifare e da consigliare agli altri. La struttura ti catapulta in una realtà fantastica, che ti da l'impressione che il tempo si sia fermato, godendoti così appieno il meritato soggiorno e il relax di cui tanto abbiamo bisogno.

Luogo bellissimo per vacanze di completo relax
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!
incantevole estremamente rilassante
un casale fiabesco, vista stupenda sulle colline umbre estremamente funzionale. appartamento elegantemente arredato dotato di tutti i confort, ottima la soluzione della colazione offerta mettendo a disposizione di ciascun appartamento tutto il necessario... ed anche di più da consumare in piena libertà ed autonomia. deliziosa l'offerta di vino e formaggi locali da gustare appena arrivati. gran relax con la jacuzzi e sopratutto molto, molto silenzio per "profondi" riposi. ottimo il rapporto qualità/prezzo.imperdibili suggerimenti dello staff sui luoghi enogastronomici da scoprire.
The holiday was very relaxed and funny!! The place is next to many cities to visit.
We have a dog: there is a beautiful place for her!
The best would be to have internet!!
Response from Gloria - 09/01/2011
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!

Torre Bertona is like something out of a storybook. Fireflies light up the lane and fields at night. Fairytale vistas. The air is scented by honeysuckle. The gardens are inviting. I understand there are fields of sunflowers in high summer. There's even a dungeon! Todi, an extraordinary medieval (or older) walled mountaintop city, is just a 10 minute drive. This is ideal for complete relaxation or a small retreat/workshop group...long walks in the countryside. The owner, Gloria, provides for your every need and the fresh ricotta and fruit preserves at breakfast are divine. The apartments are sunny, well appointed, newly renovated and the bathrooms (the top thing on my list when I travel) are modern and pristine. Get yourself to Torre Bertano, Gloria will have chilled Grecchetto waiting.
Fireflies, wild poppies, Umbrian wine - Enchanted!
Loved this place. Beautifully sited in Umbria, near major attractions, great place for groups and families. I brought ten graduate students w/me and we had an amazing time. The common room is a great place to work. And the jacuzzi a great place to relax. Everything we needed was provided. At night we walked among the fireflies. In the afternoon dozes in the beautiful garden or went exploring to nearby towns. Warm days, cool evenings. Easy access to supermarkets, banks, but off the beaten track. Can't recommend this highly enough!!!

Case di Torre Bertona - Magnifico!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Case di Torre Bertona. The medieval house, the history, the chapel and the location were all spectacular and just what we were looking for. Gloria is the perfect hostess and we really enjoyed her knowledge of the history of the house and the area. The countryside surrounding the house is breathtaking and we really loved the city of Todi. The locals that we came into contact with couldn't have been more helpful and friendly to us and we were always made to feel that we were part of the Italian experience, and not just tourists. When my wife developed a medical condition, Gloria arranged for her assistant Vittorio to pick up a local Italian doctor and bring him to the house to treat my wife; we couldn't have been more appreciative. If you are looking for a beautiful house in a serene setting with plenty of medieval atmosphere, this is where you want to stay.
Peaceful holiday with hiking
We stayed for a weekend at Torre Bertona in the beginning of april. The property is located amid a peaceful village, and in the walking path. There were several hiking trails and we followed three - for two hours, for five hours, and for three hours. The trails (actually roads) go through natural reserve with some wild flora and fauna.
We woke up to the chirping of birds. The breakfast was home-made bread, locally made cheese, jam, tea and coffee. We could sit out in the open and enjoy the natural beauty. We went to Todi and Perugia for dinner two evenings.
Gloria, the manager is a genuine hostess. She waited for us to check-in, and arranged for meeting on our check out.
We will probably go and stay there again.
