Description from the owner
With high speed WiFi and a shower in the garden, a beautiful mansion house, 1.7 miles from the historic centre of Spoleto, with spectacular, panoramic views and full-time access to our large private pool at our Villa Marianna, 7.5 miles away. Or, you can use a beautiful local pool, just a 5 mins drive away.
Spacious and set in its own huge grounds.....manicured lawns, gardens and shady nooks and crannies, this is a place where you will truly feel away from it all, deep in the heart of the country. And, yet, you are just a 3 mins drive to the very centre of mediaeval Spoleto, heaving with shops, bars and restaurants amidst its arched and...Read more
Spoleto, Umbria, Italy
Additional Location Information
A country environment, within easy access of Spoleto - 3 minutes by car, 5 minutes by car to train station, from where you can get to almost anywhere in Italy. 1 hr 20 mins by car or train to Rome.
Spoleto predates Rome and, consequently, is steeped in history. The 4 most important cities in Italy are Rome, Florence, Venice and Spoleto. However, while the other 3 cities are world famous, Spoleto is a tiny city that has kept itself under wraps. Only the celebrities and royalty visited Spoleto, some even bought homes here, such as Andy Warhole, Brigitte Bardot and Prince Charles.....to name but a fraction, because the rest of the world was unaware of Spoleto's existance. Then, because Spoleto has always been the Italians' favourite, but too expensive for most, some 15 years ago, as the "old brigade" began to die out, the younger Spoletini started to sell off property to Italians from all over Italy. Subsequently, Spoleto is now a dynamic little city, full of shops,bars and restaurants, offering a wide and diverse selection of Italian dishes from across the country.
Most of all, holiday makers are very welcome. And, the main advantage for the holiday maker are the prices of everything. Since Spoleto is not a touristy place, the rates for food, wine, clothes, museums, galleries, bars and theatre are all local rates. No fancy tourist rates here. All great value. Not to forget that some of Italy's finest wine and olive oils are produced in this area - this keeps the rates low. And, as for truffles - all the year round and, again, at great rates.....even the white truffle that you weigh at your table, is easily affordable. Yes, everwhere else, it is worth its weight in gold !!
We can introduce you to truffle hunting, olive oil tasting, wine tasting and cookery classes. We also offer feasts at modest rates in a locally celebrated chef's own home/garden, with unlimited fine local wine.
Perugia, Gubbio, Spello, Orvieto, Montefalco, Trevi, Assisi, Norcia and Casteluccio are all within easy driving distance.....Assisi and Perugia are within a 30 mins drive, for instance. And, you have Marmore Falls, the highest waterfalls in Europe, just 30 mins drive, where you can do white water rafting. You can fish, birdwatch or just ramble. When you enter the walls of Spoleto, continue up to the top to the famous and beautiful Rocca, a wondrous walk, all pedestrian, through arched and cobbled alleys, passing shops, bars and restaurants. At the top, you will see the magnificent Ponte, a huge Roman aqueduct. Cross here and enter the Sacred Mountains. Follow in the footsteps of St Francis and Michelangelo.
You cannot beat Spoleto. It may not have water or beaches. But, perched on top of a hill, it has mountains, history and views to the endsof the earth, it has magic and mystery, but, most of all, it is full of stolen hearts..... Come here and your's will be among them.
