Additional Location Information


Dear Norma and Laurie,

Every year we try to find a special place or house or nice region to spend our holidays. For two years we stayed in Pozzuolo near Castiglione di Lago and visited Orvieto, Assisi and Perugia. The most beautiful landscapes of Italy. This year we would go to the south-east of Umbria. Spoleto is a perfect place in the middle of many interesting places . An apartment at the countryside is nice, but in the middle of a historic city can be spectacular.

Searching on the internet and the site of Homeway, which is for me a very good site, I found the apartment Bella Due. After sending you an email, your answer was that it wasn't free, But you had a special offer for us. Terrazza Cathedrale in the middle of Spoleto nearby the Duomo and the Bishop's Palace. You wrote us that the entrance to the apartment had 14 steps to reach it. You scared me a little bit.

I thought that you were an Italian and perhaps you means stairs instead of steps because last year during our stay at the Amalfi Coast, we have to take 80 steps and about 200 meters to reach our apartment. Very, very heavy. But your answer was when I say steps I mean steps. That was good for us, we booked Terrazza Cathedrale. You were right from the front door of the apartment to the living it was 14 steps but from the street level to the living is was 40 steps. At the end no problem at all.

After booking you send us several pages with information, How to come to Spoleto, where we have to call Laurie en where he should wait for us. Nothing can go wrong anymore.

Saturday 3th of August, quarter past six. Laurie is waiting for us at the petrol station near Spoleto South an d we followed him to the parking ( € 5,-- per day ), We stepped in his car and went to the apartment near Piazza dei Mercato. After a 100 meters walk we reached our apartment. Always exciting when you get in a new place to stay, because you don't know what there is. Sufficient for 3 people. Nice bedrooms, a kitchen with more than enough equipment and a bathroom. The living was nice but we stayed there not very often. The most important place to be was the terrace. Not to large but the view. Marvelous, outrageous, extortinate, super, magnificent. In the morning en the evening till mid-night I've looked over the old city en the valley. You could see Assisi, Montefalco, Trevi and Campello Alto, one of the most beautiful places I've seen in Italy.

The first week of August it was hot in Umbria, until 40 degrees. But we have done everything we would do.
Walking through Spoleto, a very marvelous city, friendly, cosy, a nice atmosphere. Special the Piazza dei Mercato is the place to be in Spoleto, nice terraces and little alimentaries. We have visited the Roman house, the cathedral, the Rocca. Nice, nice, nice.

The other days we went to the waterfalls near Terni and drove to Labro, what a wonderful place. Spello, the Fontana del Clitunna, Piano Grande and Norcia, Montefalco and Trevi and at last Todi. All visits in an about an hour from Spoleto .

But our most nice experience was the dinner party at your friends, Daniela and Luciano a place in the hills near Spoleto at thursday night. A first it was a little exciting, because you don't know what people joining the dinner table. We don't speak Italian or very much French. But the evening was perfect. The dinner was delicious. The hosts were very kind en friendly en perfect cooks. And the company couldn't be better. A nice couple from Canada, Jeff and Eileen and their daughter Beth, who had worked all over the world en the American couple from Seattle.

We left at half past eleven and ate en talked whole evening, it was a good and very pleasant stay. We will never forget this evening.

The walk from the apartment tot the parking takes about 6 minutes to reach there. Couldn't be better.

A week in Spoleto is to short. Saturday at 10 a.m. Laurie came to the Piazza dei Mercato to bring us to the parking. In the beginning and at the end we spoke very short with him. A very nice, kind person he is. In the couple of minutes we met we laughed a lot. Norma it's a pity, we haven't seen you.

Spoleto, is one of the nicest city's I've been in Italy. Old, much history, A great atmosphere, and friendly. A place to visit again. And an apartment with such a wonderful view. It could not be better.

Spoleto, a place to visit again.

There is only thing to say: Partir, cést mourir un peu, the French say when your stay has been perfect.

We are leaving Spoleto and driving to Arqua Petrarca up the hills in the Colli Euganei to visit Venice end the Veneto area.

Thank you, and perhaps see you again.

Indeed, it is reported by our reviewer that there are 40 steps up to the apartment from street level, which, as you see above, they say were no problem. If you do not have mobility problems, the steps are in stages and very easy to handle.
