Spoleto, Umbria, Italy
Additional Location Information
In a beautiful setting, above Bazzano Superiore, 7 miles from central Spoleto, overlooking hills, dales, valleys, mediaeval hilltop towns, poppy and sunflower fields....to the mountains beyond, all the way to Assisi.
Close to Assisi, Perugia, Orvieto + Rome. And, Spoleto, teaming with shops, bars and restauranta, is just 7 miles.
A romantic, mountain retreat, above Bazzano Superior, with sensational views, where there is so much space that guests can do what they like, without feeling inhibited. Quiet nooks and crannies for lovers, wide open sandy areas for children, spacious patio areas for dining alfresco, endless pilgrim trails for walkers and cyclists, heavenly views, bird-song, a huge pool for family gatherings, local restaurants with proximity to the Umbrian 'hot-spots' ....Assisi, Perugia, Orvieto, Spello, Casteluccio, Norcia, Trevi, Montefalco, and, Rome, a mere 1.15 mins, by train, or, Spoleto, just 20 mins, by car, via the quiet Giro D'Italia route, a spectacularly beautiful country road. And, while exploring Umbria is a must for most, if you tear yourselves away from this mind-blowingly beautiful and historic villa in the hills above Bazzano, the buzzy, fairy-tale city of Spoleto will satiate a yearning for the bright lights with shops, bars, restaurants and churches, amidst its arched, cobbled streets.
There are many restaurants dotted all over the hills and mountains, all at great local rates, all with exceptionally good foods and wines and all with sensational views.
Spoleto is 7 miles down a quiet country lane, sometimes used for the famous bicycle race, the Giro D'Italia. Akin to a giant, fairy-tale castle. Sprinkled with bars, restaurants and shops, peppered with piazzas, Spoleto sits magestically amidst a maze of tunnelled, cobbled lanes and alley-ways, all leading skywards to the famous Rocca, the aquaduct and, some of the best views in the world. A surreal setting, a stage-set in the making, fringed by mountains, olive groves, vineyards, mediaeval monasteries, towns, cities and tiny hill-top villages - all beckoning a visit, Spoleto is truly a temptress. Succumb to her beauty and you must use all your will-power to leave. Quite simply, Spoleto is the most captivating city in Italy, never mind Umbria, Venice and Florence, being on a par.
Venice has the water. Florence has the Uffici. Spoleto has the mountains. All three have a history to be reckoned with. All three bedazzle us with their rich cultures, their European, aristocratic connections and their sheer beauty. But, Spoleto has the upper hand for the world traveller. It resists tourism with its associated inflated rates and tacky goods on sale ! You are invited to visit Spoleto, but, not as a tourist. You will be welcomed like a long lost member of the family ! Treated like a king. And, you will pay the same rates as all the locals, especially when you pay attention to all our recommended restaurants, bars and gelaterias.
