Spacious, elegant apartment – rate includes 4 persons....

SPOLETO : PEDESTRIAN, HISTORIC CENTRE /car NOT necessary. Train station 10 mins easy walk.

Arrival/Departure dates flexible, subject to availability.

One of the most impressive features of Terrazza Bella is the opening of both sets of French windows + the large window, enabling the sunny terrace with its pretty hill views to become one huge indoor/outdoor space.

1 double bedroom + 1 twin bedroom - beds can be joined, by request/1 shower rm/WC. Sleeps 4. Both bedrooms open onto a balcony with views of pedestrian, mediaeval lanes.

The rate includes 4 persons. However, It is possible to sleep up to 1 extra person in large sitting/dining room or in one of the 2 bedrooms at 50 euros/per week extra.

With free WiFi internet access, Terrazza Bella, a fabulous apartment, is in the historic centre of Spoleto, buzzing with shops, bars and restaurants as well as ancient monuments, churches and museums at every twist and turn of Spoleto's arched and cobbled streets. It is located in Porta Fuga, one of Spoleto's oldest mediaeval streets. The whole area is pedestrian. The best location in central Spoleto !

A car is NOT necessary as you are just 10 minutes walk from the train station and the bus terminus or a very short bus-ride. From the train station, you can get to practically anywhere in Italy. And, from the bus station, there are myriad of really interesting journeys you can take from little local rides around the hills, visiting a diversity of hill-top villages, to places as far afield as Castelluccio and Norcia - spectacular rides !

Specific features.....

Terrazza Bella (90 sq mts) is at the top of the Rocca Dei Perugini, with views from the kitchen/dining room and the terrace of the hilly countryside, dwellings scattered around and nearby roof-tops. It also has a long balcony off both bedrooms, overlooking the pedestrian, mediaeval lanes. So that, while your immediate surroundings are modern, the context you are in dates back to the days when Spoleto was a Latin colony and Roman community.

The large sitting/dining room is complete with TV/DVD. It has 2 double sets of dark, wooden patio doors (1 of them all glass) and a large wooden shuttered window - all along the front of the room. The doors lead onto the large terrace - an absolute luxury in the historic centre of Spoleto – looks really great when the large window and both double doors are wide-open onto the terrace as the terrace becomes an extension of the room.

The terrace, while private, is open plan; about 5 metres away to the side of the apartment, is the beginning of another large terrace that belongs to the other apartment that is a twin of ours, except in reverse. There is also a tiny balcony in the apartment above that diagonally looks down onto our terrace - it is too small to sit on so isn't intrusive. However, if you are shy about being seen in your bikini then, using a large unbrella, sunbathing can be done "privately". But, in the hot weather, certainly for Italians, modesty really doesn't come into it !!!!

Big terracotta pots full of colourful bushes, shrubs and flowers decorate the terrace. Wooden, garden, dining furnture seats 6. And, there are sunbeds and lounge chairs to snooze on.

All mod cons in a mediaeval palazzo.......

The Rocca Dei Perugini, one of 33 listed buildings in Spoleto, was originally built in the 6C as the strong-hold of Perugia to watch over the citizens of Spoleto, whom the Perugians, alias "the Barbarians", had just conquered! However, while the building itself is ancient, parts of it were irreparable. Hence, the entire centre of this ancient building has been replaced by modern apartments that cannot be seen from the outside. Very clever and very beautifully designed.

Here, you have all the advantages of contemporary, open-air living while still experiencing what it's like to live in the most ancient and beautiful part of Spoleto. Porta Fuga is pedestrian, as are many of the tiny streets immediate to the apartment. Meander at ease through the ancient streets, past flower shops, wine and truffle shops, many boutiques and shoe shops, bars and cafes and, of course, a myriad of interesting restaurants - cheap and "expensive" (nothing here is expensive compared to other city prices)… up to the famous La Rocca and the Duomo.

The entrance to Terrazza Bella is through a wide Roman stone passage with a luxury all glass business centre on the left and those in-built small glass alcoves displaying small luxury items on the right.

All the apartments in the Rocca dei Perugini, are serviced by a lift as well as a staircase. And, we have a private car space right next to the lift, in a private car-park, that you can hire for 50 euros/week – the rate we pay the owner of the car-park. Having said that, it is quite easy to park in the nearby lanes, just a few minutes walk away, for free.

In this building, there are only a few apartments with large terraces (all ours !) - and all the other apartments have just tiny balconies.

Handy tit-bits !

Terrazza Bella is handy for the train station and the bus station from where you can get to practically anywhere in Italy by train or bus from Spoleto. Though, if you prefer to have a car, it is possible to park in one of the lanes just a few minutes walk away. Or, you can hire our secure car-parking space right outside Terrazza Bella for 50 euros a week - the rate we pay the owner of the car-park.

Please ask at the Spoleto tourist office if would like advice re the various activities on offer....eg pony trekking, white water rafting etc.....

So, if you are interested in being in the historical centre of Spoleto, surrounded by some of the world's most famous monuments, churches and sites and, at the same time having easy access by local transport to places like Asissi, Perugia, Orvieto, Montefalco, Trevi, Todi and Rome, not to mention the gastronomic treats, famous (and cheap !) local wines…..and designer shops, then this is the place for you !

There are the full range of local shops, restaurants, supermarkets, banks and cash machines - everything you'd expect to find in a sophisticated city centre - just scaled down since Spoleto is more a large fairy-tale village and has the advantage of everything you could wish for within easy reach....especially, ice-cream, cappucino, great wines and truffles !!! The clothes shops ! Not to mention the galleries, museums, theatres and churches that are dotted all around you; and, you will find yourself entranced by the beauty and sprituality that pervades every cobble-stone in every one of its medieval street.

For the sporty, there is a flash tennis club within walking distance of almost anywhere you are staying – or, it is a short bus-ride from Piazza Garibaldi.

And, there is pony trekking that takes place just outside of Spoleto. The stables are placed in a exquisite environment and, you can either go on long treks into the mountains or just do an hour or so in the nearby woods – all supervised, the level of supervision depending on your level of expertise.

PARKING....

You can park nearby. Or, you can hire a private car space, next to the elevator, up to the apartment.

The weekly rate is 50 euros, or 8 euros/day, the rate we pay the owner of the tiny car-park.

FOR THOSE WITHOUT A CAR - WE CAN RECOMMEND THE RELIABLE TAXI SERVICE OF CARLO!! He has a fleet of cars, busses, people carriers and will undertake all journeys, however long or short and to anywhere you wish.

This may be if no interest to you but I’ve been awarded the status of SUPERHOST across all 80 of the apts, villas and pool properties I manage (some of which I own) by that well known holiday rental site that is disrupting the world at the moment. So, you can be rest assured you are in good hands!!

Response from the manager Terrazza Bella, with WiFi throughout, is located in the buzziest part of town, in a pedestrian area known as "il borgo" ie "the village". The travellator is just 2 mins walk : moving walkways, escalators and elevators connect all parts of Spoleto with dropping off points wherever you want to go. Spoleto is a traffic free city. And, especially between May and October, festivals and concerts take place in various parts of this tiny city. Maybe our reviewers stayed with us during the wine festival, when there is "a white night", where the shops, bars and restaurants never close, life continues for 24 hours and, the streets are abuzz with revellers ! We have 17 central Spoleto apartments, some in quiet alleyways, behind the Duomo, where the only sounds you hear are of the swifts, the swallows and the cathedral bells tolling the time of the day. Other apartments, eg Terrazza Bella, are in the midst of it all. And, to this end, they are triple glazed. The reviewers talk about hearing noise, “even with the windows closed”. The triple glazing is in both the windows and external glass doors. When you close the windows and the doors, you can hear a pin drop, such is the quietness in Terrazza Bella, even when the carnival is full on. However, some guests do not like to shut themselves up in order to have peace and quiet. To this end, I recommend you ask for an apartment in a quiet location. Although, it is hard to guarantee total peace in a tiny city, where fun is the name of the game, there is a restaurant at every twist and turn of the cobbled arched streets and the atmosphere is relaxed and mellow. Indeed, total peace is hard to come by anywhere, In the countryside, you have logging machines, dogs barking, roosters crowing and combine harvesters droning. If peace is high on your agenda, ask for triple glazing ! Terrazza Bella has it !
