  • Beauty, Style and Elegance in a Romantic Italian Town

    "Our week long stay in Spello with friends was relaxing and comfortable in this beautiful home. Andrea was the perfect hostess, welcoming us personally with a smile and a tour of her home. The dining room table was complete with a platter of fresh fruit, a bottle of wine and a copy of Andrea's book containing personal recommendations for restaurants and sights to see in Spello and the surrounding region. When asked about the "truffles" that are so popular and delicious, Andrea recommended a "truffle hunt"... immediately contacting the guide who would take us and setting up a day and time. Since Andrea had never been herself, she accompanied us so that she could experience it first hand. It was a highlight of our trip! We were amazed at the beauty of the countryside, the knowledge of the farmer and the hospitality of his family who welcomed us to their farm and treated us to an authentic, fresh and delicious Italian meal. Every suggestion Andrea made was a success- from the flea market to shops and restaurants. After busy day trips or shopping, our evenings were spent on the terrace, enjoying wine and music as we looked out over the amazing view of the countryside. This restful, sweet town of Spello was a welcome getaway, and Andrea's house was the perfect place to make it complete."

  • A Taste of Heaven

    "What does one say when you come across a physical space that embraces you, renews you and makes it oh so easy to live. Il Conventaccio is a most special and remarkable place to be. I cannot thank the owners sufficiently for the care and effort and vision they had in restoring this 12 century convent property from it ruinous state into the elegant and comfortable home that they have. From the minute you arrive you can only gasp at the beauty of the entire surroundings as you sense the peacefulness within the walls and throughout the land on which it sits. Five of us had ventured from the US for a two week respite and we found a taste of heaven. There is nothing in Conventaccio that was done without great thought and in the most exquisite of tastes. The area is charming and enchanting as one of the many hill towns with its own unique individual history and storied past. All that you read regarding the home's spaciousness and comfort is true but the words cannot capture the deep sense of place and peace it evokes as you spend time there. The mornings are simply wonderful as you awake to the dawn and the sun shows its face, the birds sing, and the neighboring bells begin their toll. You arise to see a stunningly beautiful Umbrian landscape from your window which is calling you to greet another beautiful day in Umbria. Simply breathtaking and the owners have many kind recommendations along with the gracious assistance of their caretaker which makes your stay at Conventaccio so very easy and one which will beckon you to return. WOW"
