The organic farm & guesthouse “Tra Cielo e Terra (Between Heaven and Earth)” is located a few kilometers away from Todi, in the district of Frontignano. In an excellent panoramic position, the building reflects the features of the 16th century Umbrian architecture, consisting of an old rectangular farmhouse whose original nucleus dates back to the early 1700’s, and a higher tower-shaped building, renovated a decade ago, useful at the time as a lookout point. Because of the presence of spring water, the area was called “Vocabolo Orto”, that is to say area for vegetable gardens, for the nearby fortified castle of Frontignano.
The apartments made available for the guests, “Lavanda” and “Calendula-Salvia”, are positioned in the part of the Tower, on two separate floors. Functional and spacious, they have ceilings with wooden beams and exposed tiles, window architraves and antique wooden doors with vintage furnishings. Our structure is surrounded by greenery with 400 olive trees, secular oaks and garden around the salt pool, which is available to the guests. The main goal we set is the wellbeing of our guests. For our structure we received 4 “spighe” (stars) from the Umbria Region.
During your stay with us you can visit the surrounding cities of Todi, Assisi, Perugia, Spoleto. Nature lovers can practice outdoor sports like canoe on the closeby lake of Corbara, horseriding, tours on e-bike or trekking on the Sibilini mountains.
