Why The Owner chose Umbria

A few years ago my husband brought me to meet his family in Italy. As I walked through its cobblestone streets, I immediately fell in love with the village he was raised in, Spello! This medieval hill town, nestled amongst silver green olive groves, golden pastures of grain and sunflower fields immediately worked a magic spell upon my heart. Like many towns in Umbria and Tuscany, Spello looks as if it has been taken out of a fairy tale. No matter how many beautiful and exciting cities I have been fortunate to explore, the peace, calm and happiness I feel when in Spello is simply unique. It is my magic place. Out of our love for Spello, we have recently bought and completely restored a medieval house in the historic center. We like to rent our vacation retreat and share it with other people that enjoy the beauty of this part of Italy. I hope you will have fun discovering what is magical about our town. For my daughters it is most definitely the gelato (ice cream!) and the cornetto they enjoy every day at the nearby patisserie - - Desiree -

Great apartment in medieval hilltop town!

  • 5 of 5

Talk about great location to do short day trips around to see Umbria's beautiful hilltop towns. Great comfort too. A/C, tho didn't need it with the lovely thick walls to stay cool. Washer helped, full kitchen equipped with everything. Restaurants plentiful and the town itself lovely to explore. Parking is short walk away, but can drop off things right at apartment door, for short term plaid parking. Terrific atmosphere and ambience. Nice shops. Try the wines, terrific. Especially Montefalco reds.

Total rest and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Spello is the perfect small town to relax while still enjoying everything about vacationing in Italy. The house is close to the train station, but easy parking for a car at the bottom of the hill. House is immaculate and owners will respond promptly if any concern arises. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms are hard to find --and ones that are modern but retain the old city charm. We love the house and town, visited 5 times now!

Spacious and we'll situated

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this house is Spello. It was clean and spacious and in a perfect location. Spello is delightful in itself and a great center for visiting other sights and sites in Umbria (for example Perugia and Assisi). The owners were very quick to respond directly to any questions, and the local caretaker very kindly left us tasty treats. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Una bella casa

  • 5 of 5

This house in Spello was perfect for us. It's charming, clean, well situated, and came with ammenities, such as, olive oil and jam. A nice touch that made us feel very welcome. The parking lot is at the bottom of the hill, which would only be a problem for those who have real difficulty walking.

A true Umbrian treasure.

  • 5 of 5

I shared this lovely home with 2 friends the week of Le Infiorate. What a fabulous event this was and we were in the midst of it all being on the Main Street. This quiet hill town became a high energy place filled with many tourists-mostly Italians which was nice to see. The whole event of watching the floral carpets being made was magical. We had everything we could want in this home. The rooms are very light with big windows and shutters that open to the outside. Everything was immaculate. A joy!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Spello is a charming Umbrian hill town, and this home is in an ideal location within the city walls. We came specifically for Le infiorate which is held annually the 9th Sunday after Easter. This home is on the main street of Spello, so we could watch the religious procession and decorating of flower carpets from the windows of the house. What an amazing event this was!! The house has been newly restored and is very spacious. It is immaculate and is beautifully furnished with a mix of antiques and new furnishings. Having a washer/ dryer is handy if you are staying for more than a few days. Desiree and Giampalo, the owners, live in the US so are very responsive to questions. You will love your time in Spello and will be comfortable in this lovely home. It has 3 floors, so you will get a workout climbing stairs...a good thing to help with all the pasta carbs you will eat! This home is close to wonderful restaurants, and only a 15 minute walk to the train station, so a car us not needed.
