Spoleto house description
Poreta is a small village overlooking the Spoleto Valley below a Medieval Castle along the famous Pilgrim's route of St. Francis of Assisi.
We've been living in this little hamlet for many years in a house just around the corner from 'Il Borghetto' with a sweet little garden and pool. You are welcome to use this space whenever you feel like taking a dip.
As we are working architects who adore restoring old stone properties, we decided to purchase the 70 sq meter property near our house to use for our guests, family and friends. We've created a small outdoor space off the large eat-in kitchen with a wood fireplace and a roof terrace perfect for breakfasts or a glass of wine at sunset.
Although the sofa bed can sleep an extra person or two, we consider the apartment perfect for a couple since there is only one bathroom with a shower. It's simply but tastefully furnished and has everything you need during your stay. You'll have your own parking space just behind the house for day trips to towns like Spoleto, Assisi, Montefalco and Perugia but you can easily hike to the nearby town of Campello or walk down the road to our local cafe which also sells essentials like fresh bread, milk and vegetables.

A Bit of Heaven in Umbria
A Bit of Heaven in Umbria
The VRBO pictures are beautiful. Now, imagine it even 10X more beautiful than the pictures - because it is. Those of us from other parts of the world, thought a place like this only existed in travel magazines. The hosts and their wonderful assistant Bianca will make your stay everything you could want. Get prepared for a steep drive up the mountains - by the third time, it will be a "piece of cake."
