1 Full bath
A wonderful alternative to a hotel! Continental breakfast is included.
Four historic, renovated units ranging in size from large studio to 3 bedroom/2 baths. Located in the scenic hilltop village of Spello in the region of Umbria.
Once a residence for a wine and olive oil-producing family for generations, the property has been recently transformed, with the help of a local architect, into 4 separate units having all the convenience of modern amenities while retaining unique historic charm. There is a lush terraced garden available for your use, which has a view of the surrounding countryside. Each unit is beautifully furnished, and is equipped with full modern kitchen and bathroom, high-speed internet, etc. Ideally suited for weekly visits or long-term stays (discounts for longer terms)
Centrally located for day trips throughout Italy -- just a 10 minute drive from Assisi; 30 minutes from Perugia; one hour from Siena; two hour train or car ride from Florence and/or from Rome.
The town of Spello has an authenticity that has not yet been spoiled by tourism. It sits on the Southern slope of the imposing Mount Subasio. With a population of only 6,000 inhabitants, Spello has a rich history which dates back to Roman times. It is an ideal place for foreigners to experience the charm of a small medieval Italian village and to live like a local, experience local festivals and roam the antique / outdoor markets. Casa Spello is equally well-suited as a home base for day trips or weekend excursions to many of Italy's most popular tourist destinations (such as Perugia, Montefalco, Bevagna, Foligno, Assisi, Lago Trasimeno to name just a few).
Rome and Florence are also accessible by train - they distance between one and a half to two hours from Spello.
Within walking distance to public transportation (including a train station which connects to Florence, Rome, and beyond), local bakery, grocery stores, cappuccino bars, restaurants, post office, and churches. Tours of Roman ruins, cooking classes, horse back riding and spa visits can easily be arranged through a local travel agent in Spello.

My wife and I concluded our one month stay with two weeks in Spello, Umbria at Casa Spello. The experience was perfect in every respect. We loved the apartment for it's charm and rustic feel. All of the appliances worked perfectly and it was very helpful to have a thorough booklet prepared by the owner giving us very helpful hints on side trips, a "how to" guide for the particularly different appliances. and how to deal with the mosquito population. The in-country employee was priceless. We had a mild medical issue that required a doctors visit. Nadia made an appointment and walked to the office where we were immediately see by a very gracious and thorough doctor. We went to pay and the doctor told us it was complimentary as guests of Spello.
“Beautiful views, lovely terrace, enchanting town.”
We liked Spello and we were ready to be in side the small hill town so Casa Spello was well situated for that. Be aware that you cannot have your car brought to the site. Nadia the housekeeper was very helpful and met us at parking lot a short few twists and turns away and helped us bring our luggage. Kitchen was well equipped.
“A little slice of heaven”
We spent five days at Casa Spello in April and it is hands down, one of our favorite vacation rentals ever. Upon our arrival, Natalie greeted us promptly and was extremely helpful and accommodating. The apartment is absolutely beautiful, tastefully decorated, and spacious. Spello turned out to be a fabulous location for exploring Umbrian hill towns and visiting our oldest daughter who is studying at the University of Perugia. We cannot wait to return!
“The quintessential Umbrian experience.”
Spello is magical and exactly what we were looking for as a base for exploring Umbria. We enjoyed every minute of our week long stay, always happy to come back to our wonderful apartment and relax after a busy day visiting nearby towns and villages. There are many terrific restaurants in Spello and all within easy walking distance of the apartment. If you want somewhere to stay that is free of the city tourist crowds, exudes charm and warmth, offers numerous sumptuous restaurant choices and a beautifully appointed apartment then Gina's place is for you. We will go back.
“No kidding, this was the most perfect week of my life!”
The highlight of our recent Italian vacation was a week in the Augustus unit of Casa Spello. Everything about our experience was perfection. The apartment was beautifully appointed. The views were beyond imagination. The location, tucked into the charming streets of Spello, allowed us to fully enjoy this special town and proved to be a great base for launching into the surrounding Umbrian countryside. We had grand adventures -- thanks, in large part, to Gina's helpful guidance. If you want to fully experience Italy's wonderful charm, find your way to Casa Spello!
Thank you Gina for a wonderful place to stay in Umbria it was more than expected and felt like home as soon as you walked in the door! I would not hesitate to recommend your wonderful accommodation to anybody wanting to stay in that area a fantastic base to explore all of Umbria. We hope to return soon!!!!
“Outstanding, a must visit”
We were a group of four friends and we lived our stay at Casa Spello and would highly recommend it. The accommodation was of high order with lots of space and a great kitchen if you like to do some self catering. The beautiful curved stone vaulted ceiling is a highlight. The town of Spello is a wonderful place to relax and explore and a one train stop to Assisi. Definitely a five star experience all round and we want to come back.
“Fantastic find in Spello”
Well equipped, gorgeous, comfortable stone apartments in the heart of Spello. Panoramic views and a private garden where you can enjoy a glass of wine in the afternoon as you watch the sun set over the Umbrian countryside. Gina was wonderful, adding enormously to the enjoyment of our trip with her tips on restaurants, places to see in Umbria and local festivals and events. To say it is like a 'home away from home' sounds a bit cliched .. but it is truly what Casa Spello delivers. There is even a washing machine in each apartment - such a bonus when you are traveling!! We stayed for 8 nights and would return in a heartbeat!
Response from the owner Thank you so much for coming to Casa Spello twice within 2 weeks. We are starting to have repeat guests who have come 5 and 6 times! It was my pleasure to host you. We continue to try our best to make a home in Italy for our guests. Most of our guests have said that the list of recommendations we give them are better than any guide books. My husband Dan and I travel all over the world and we always try to think of useful things to add to Casa Spello. Please come again, Casa Spello is waiting for you.
“The Italian dream vacation, old world charm, comfort and care.”
My BFF and her 7 year old joined me for this relaxing and delicious stay at Casa Spello. We were thoroughly briefed by owner Gina beforehand . She covered transportation local sightseeing and of course food! Spello is a walking town so we walked all over, a necessity after all of the yummy gelato, cappuccinos and truly amazing food. sorry I don't remember the name but fabulous place just up from the church , it has red awnings and outside tables. I loved going to sleep in my comfy bed and waking up to make breakfast , important for the 7 year old picky eater in our party. The beautiful old hand hewn pink stones in the house and stunning views were magical. Grazie mille, Casa Spello
“We stayed three months and loved it and plan on returning.”
Wonderful apartment furnished to a high degree. Exactly as advertised, first class all the way Great
