"We recently stayed at Casa Spello, located in the hilltop village of Spello in Umbria, near Assisi, for a few days after being in Rome for two weeks. I work for a local lifestyle magazine here in the Bay Area, and have stayed at many charming hotels - but this is different - and better.
Casa Spello worked its magic on us the minute we arrived. We took an easy two-hour train ride from the Termini Station in Rome, rolling along scenic terrain with charming hilltop towns dotting the countryside.
It is an easy walk into town from the train station at Spello. The caretaker, Nadia, was there to meet us upon arrival and insisted upon toting our suitcases along the charming cobblestone streets. We instantly felt "at home" in Spello. The people are so nice and friendly - very different vibe than in Rome.
Casa Spello occupies a prime corner lot in the town of Spello - with sweeping views of the Umbrian Valley. The unit was so well-thought out and cozy. Best news - had all modern conveniences without being intrusive. T.V., wi-fi, well-stocked kitchen - all the modern amenities encased in an amazing medieval home.
(NOTE: We were staying at first-rate accommodations in Rome, but, it had nothing on the shower in our unit at Casa Spello. It is a rare and beautiful thing to have a shower that strong in italy!)
After Nadia showed us all the conveniences of our apartment, we set out on foot to explore. There are a lot of little stores and restaurants, with breathtaking views at each turn. The town is very manageable to navigate, and has won prizes for having the most beautiful flowered pathways in Umbria.
We took an evening drive about 20 minutes away to the hilltop town of Collepino. The La Locanda bar is a MUST - and the local restaurant, Taverna San Silvestro, offered literally some of the best food we had ever tasted. Order the lamb and pasta with porcini mushrooms and truffles, and tell them you are guests of Gina Waldman at Casa Spello. Everyone seems to know and adore Gina! We were treated like family.
We had a SECOND dinner that evening in Spello at La Locanda del Postiglione at via Roma 5. Again - never tasted a truffle crepe so delicious in our lives. Hands down the winner of all dinners throughout Italy - and right there in Spello. Again,be sure to mention you are staying at Gina's home at Casa Spello. They will be thrilled.
The next couple days, we toured Assisi and Perugia - both just 30-40 minutes away from Spello. Both very quaint and pictures"

"Osvaldo's apartment was the most well-stocked, thoughtfully equipped one we've stayed in. Plenty of room and storage, light-filled rooms and an extremely central location. Osvaldo himself was a lovely, welcoming host. Spello had plenty of restaurants and cafes, beautiful streets, and was in a great position to visit other towns and villages in the area. The aqueduct walk to Collepino is lovely, with a great restaurant at the end, but be warned the last 15 minutes is pretty steep."

"Was für eine Wohnung... Alles wirklich alles ist perfekt. So schön haben wir noch nie gewohnt. Wir sind von der Eigentümerin Monia begrüßt worden und sie hat uns ihr wunderschönes Casa del Cantico vorgestellt. Sie hatte ein typisch italienisches Dinner für uns vorbereitet - perfekt nach der langen Anreise. Nach einer ausführlichen Erklärung zum Haus fuhr sie mit uns zum nächsten Supermarkt, Obsthändler, Bäckerei, Bank, Apotheke... Endlich den Urlaub beginnen ohne lange nach Lebensmitteln usw. suchen zu müssen.
Im Haus ist alles für einen perfekten Urlaub vorbereitet: Duschgel, Badeschwämme, Kaffee, Wein, ein kleiner Computer mit Tipps für die Umgebung - sogar ein kostenloses Handy stand uns zur Verfügung. Der Raum mit dem Whirlpool ist wie eine kleine Wohlfühloase.
Das Haus ist komplett sauber - geschmackvoll eingerichtet und läd zum wohlfühlen ein. Die Aussenbereich ist sehr schön bestückt mit Stühlen, Tischen, Sonnenliegen und einem Baldachin zum Schutz gegen die Sonne.
Bei Fragen stand Monia immer helfend zur Seite - sie gab uns Tipps für Restaurants, Tickets für diverse Besichtigungen in Assisi ( so brauchten wir für Eintrittskarten nicht anstehen), Weinproben...
Eine herrliche Woche haben wir hier verbracht und bedanken uns ganz herzlich bei Monia für die schöne Zeit in Casa del Cantico... CIAO Elke, Tilo und Dude"
