CISTERNA/KATE MOSS, THE FAMOUS MODEL, STAYED HERE!
Rome is 1 hour, Spoleto just up the road !
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE MAP REFERENCE IS NOT CORRECT BECAUSE I CANNOT FIND AQUAIURA, 7 MILES FROM CENTRAL SPOLETO, TOWARDS TERNI....
A two floor stone cottage with a pretty private terrace and a large garden with sensational views.
Located next to the church, its name comes from the ancient cistern of rainwater on which it was built.
On the first floor there is a living/dining room with fireplace and a separate kitchen.
On the ground floor there is a twin bedroom with a bathroom.
The mediaeval, pedestrian city of Spoleto that predates Roma is 7 miles away, along the beautiful Flaminia. Here you will find a private tennis club that welcomes day memberships, several gyms, amongst which Unique is the best, and, a little closer to you, fabulous riding stables, where you can participate in moonlit, mountain hacks or simply train in the paddock.
We also offer a range of services, from a diversity of cookery classes : peasant dishes eg sausage and cheese making, high class truffle and porcini dishes, pizza and pasta making etc, picnic treks with a donkey, truffle hunts and chestnut gathering in pretty woods, then, cooking and eating alfresco, dining at a chef's home at whatever level you require, including sampling an olive oil, the best in Italy that was blessed by the current Pope in recognition of its worthiness.
Importantly, we have ensured that all these activities are done "in-house" within our small partnership group, thereby, undercutting by a long chalk, the often exorbitant rates charged by independent "activity" businesses, who rely on these activities for their living. For us, such activities are "add-ons" to ensure the perfect Italian holiday; we charge no commission; and, our partners are able to work on minimal profit margins because of the volume of guests that we, Umbria Holiday Rentals, attract.
Having been in the holiday rental business for 15 years or more, our partners, some of whose ancestors owned and controlled Spoleto and Umbria since before the 8C, alongside our combined experiences in knowing how best to present culinary delights, accompanied by the best wines and olive oils, means only one thing. GUARANTEED SUCCESS !! And, ALWAYS at affordable rates !
Lastly, in response to an enquiry, you will receive a list of restaurants, walks, bike rides and/or hiring, round trips, places of special interest, beauty spars, gyms, day trips with a chauffeur etcâ€Ścompiled over the years, and, updated each year, on the recommendations of all our guests.
If you have a pet, it should be house-trained, quiet and well-behaved.
If you have mobility issues, you should advise us so that we can advise you as to which of the cottages is most suited to your requirements.TripAdvisor property ID 2932056...Read more
