Additional Location Information

This location is the best ! Spoleto centre and the station are within spitting distance and, the mountains are all around you. A tranquil place with easy access to all the hot-spots….Assisi, Perugia, Trevi, Spello, Norcia, Perugia, Todi, Gubbio and, just over an hour to Rome. Spoleto is the Italians' favourite place in Umbria – some say in Italy. Now, Italy's best kept secret has been revealed. And, Spoleto is enjoying its new found fame. The locals are so friendly. Once here, you are bound in a kinship of love and worship of all that is most precious to the Italian….. sculpture, architecture, works of Art and, above all, food ! Not to mention wine, shopping and the most famous of all activities – the passeggiata ! The bus, at the end of the lane, goes to the top of Spoleto, the famous Rocca and Il Ponte. Very convenient if you fancy walking back home, down-hill, through the pretty, cobbled and arched streets of Spoleto, passing the myriad of shops, bars and restaurants along the way.

PERFECT SITUATION: A mellow, beautiful and tranquil place, the waterfall, the jacuzzi, the manicured grounds, the BBQ area and the infinity pool, all ensure that, here, you will lie back and totally relax. A car is advisable. But, if you are the fit type, used to walking up and down hills, and, not committed to stiletto heels, you can stay here without a car. So, one moment you are floating in the pool and the next you are wandering in the fairy-tale city of Spoleto, through arched, cobbled streets, exploring alleyways and byways, admiring frescoes, browsing museums, visiting churches and indulging your senses in the many shops, bars and restaurants, sampling the finest that Italy can offer and, far more cheaply than touristy places such as Venice, Todi or Florence. From all of the apartments, there are magnificent views across swathes of crop fields, distant dwellings, and, mountains fringing the horizons. Here is a place to just be, to allow yourself to be mesmorised and to submit to an inner calm.

THE COTTAGES: Once upon a time, both these 16C cottages were inhabited by farm workers; and, the whole of Il Pincio, the hill that Spoleto By The Pool stands on and is locally known as, was owned by the next door neighbours. Delicate negotiations, taking several years, enabled a local builder to buy and develop the land, with an aim to selling on both cottages to passing millionaires. However, financial challenges resulted in this wonderful development falling into our hands and, instead of being privately owned by yet more rich people, you can enjoy what it is like to live in a sought after area, so close to historic Spoleto. While all the original features have been preserved eg beams, arches and cubby holes, neither of the cottages has lost its traditional appeal. Simply and practically furnished, both cottages are child-friendly and equipped fully with everything you could need on a holiday. If you like heights, then APT 2 is the best. If you have babies, then, APTs 5 and 6 open onto a lawn.

TRADITIONS: Spoleto is one the most un-touristy places you will find. Extremely popular with Italians because, not only is it beauitful, but, the Spoletini have remained faithful to their traditions. Here you will find live theatre, operas, concerts, ballets and plays, all year round. But, be prepared to hear only Italian spoken. Unlike, tourist traps, the indigenous Italian has never bothered to learn English. Nonetheless, foreigners are welcomed. Sign language still prevails. And, the language of food, wine and clothes is universal. Further, in Spoleto, as well as the surrounding villages and hill-top towns, sagras take place throughout the year, celebrating the harvesting of truffle, asparagus, olives, grapes, maize, tomatoes....... Halloween and various saints' days. Big spreads are provided, free of charge (or almost), as a kind of offering to the gods, a thanksgiving of good fortune, except that you will be the recipients and not the gods ! Indeed, any excuse will do for a celebration !

Other Activities: Wine-tasting, olive oil tasting, truffle trails, museums, antiquing, white-water rafting.
