About the Property
Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)
The apartment is decorated with numerous pieces of family antiques, locally made furniture -such as an iron-wrought bed- and some paintings, objects and books gathered through my travels, i.e. Southern France, Ethiopia, Poland.
From the garden, there are postcard views of the medieval town of Spoleto. The Rocca Albornoziana (Castle) towers over the town; it has hosted a succession of governors and even a prison and garrison. In the garden, 2 linden trees provide shade in the summer and a pine reminds you that you are not too far from the Mediterranean sea (Tarquinia, a seaside town, is a 1h 45 min drive.)
You can also contact Lucia Andreini in Spoleto about the property.

Year Purchased: 2004
About: I am a French woman in my mid 40's, whose family has lived in Italy on several occasions. I worked for the UN for more than 10 years and lived and traveled extensively in Central Europe and Africa. I am multilingual (French, Italian, English for starters) and spend my time between Spoleto, Washington DC, and Southern France, where part of my family lives. I am passionate about travel, hospitality and cooking.
Why Spoleto PG, Italy:
When I looked for a place to put down my suitcases I decided on Italy, which in itself hosts more than half of all UNESCO classified sites worldwide, and is incontestably one of the major food and wine destinations worldwide. What attracted me to Spoleto was its rich history, the Spoleto ‘Festival dei due mondi’- an arts and literature festival more than 50 years old-, the diversity of hiking possibilities and parks nearby, and the proximity to two international airports in Perugia (1h) and Rome (2hs).
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The property combines the quiet and charm of the Italian countryside and proximity to the culture and restaurants of the historic town. Every morning I can enjoy the sight of the sheep in the hills across the house. Yet in 15 min I can walk to the heart of the historic center, Piazza del duomo (the Cathedral), or the ancient Roman forum which hosts part of the Spoleto Festival. Some of my favorite rituals: Flip through the pages of Italian magazines at the cafe of the municipal library, hosted in a recently renovated 17th century palace. Drive 20 minutes to the hills of Monteluco, which I can see from my house, and hike for hours among the trails. Browse through locally made pottery, linens and other textiles at shops in Spoleto and surrounding villages and bring back gifts to friends in the U.S.
