  • Fabulous Apartment, Fabulous Town

    "My husband and I recently spent 2 weeks in this apartment. It was absolutely wonderful, as was Spello. The apartment was extremely neat, clean, and furnished nicely. Everything was comfortable, and we lacked nothing. The host left us his own olive oil, as well as fruit and wine. That was especially welcomed, as we arrived rather late at night. The host was also available to answer any questions we had or help us with problems. We had trouble locating one piece of luggage, and greatly appreciated that he was available to help us. The bed was comfortable, with plenty of bed linens and towels. There is a full bath, and another half-bath - a real bonus in an European apartment. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need - plenty of dishware, utensils, appliances, etc. The second bathroom is very large. It has an awesome shower, and there's a clothes washer in the bathroom as well. The apartment is located in the historic center of Spello. It was an easy walk to everything. There are the usual array of shops you find in Italian small towns: butcher, baker, cafes, bars, osterias, enotecas. There are also small souvenir shops, ceramic shops, and gift shops. We were very, very pleased with how beautiful Spello is, and enjoyed walking around town every day. A bonus was that Spello is located only about 5 minutes from the "big road", making travel to other locales extremely easy and fast. Spello is only minutes from Assisi and other significant Umbrian towns. We truly found everything to exceed our expectations and highly recommend Spello and this apartment. It was a joy to stay there, and we certainly would return."

  • Unbelievably beautiful - Amazing family vacation

    "This is what is must be like to summer at an old family place at the top of a Tuscan hill town. The views were spectacular from all sides of property. The place is even more beautiful that in the pictures. Angelo and Martina were wonderful hosts. Don't miss using the pizza oven -worth the euros to have Angelo spend 3-4 hours firing it up (a hot and messy job!). We found pizza dough at the larger grocery store near the train station - it's sold in long rolls in the refrigerated section, not the dough balls I was expecting. We had absolutely everything we needed either at the villa or within walking distance - including the oft-mentioned gelateria at the end of the drive. Cappuccino bar is just a little further up the main road on the left. Another don't-miss is the walk through town to the 180 degree overlook. There's not much in town itself (no touristy shopping for example) but it's unbelievably picturesque. A few notes/recommendations: This property is so charming and truly ancient in some parts. However, the inherent unevenness of steps/flooring and frequent level changes in the house made it a little treacherous for those with mobility issues, especially in the middle of the night. Not a criticism, just a note for those who might need to worry about that. The beds are hard. There's no way around it. I should be used to the Italian standard mattress by now but....ouch. No way to avoid a car rental. The drive down the hill to either the A1 or the train station is about 15 minutes and not walkable. We found that there was more variety and frequency of trains if we drove to Orvieto train station - about 20 minutes away. Orvieto should be a required stop regardless for anyone visiting this part of Italy. One of the most spectacular towns in Europe."

  • Gorgeous house in gorgeous Spello

    "My wife, her sister and I had 3 lovely nights in this lovely property and found it exceeded our expectations in terms of quality, fixtures & fittings as well as location. We visited Gubbio, Perugia and Assisi and also enjoyed the Hispellum Festival that was actually on in Spello during our stay. We would thoroughly recommend Desiree's lovely house to anyone planning to visit Spello."
