Why Owner chose Spello
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 -
Sports & Adventure Activities
A fine stay
We visited Spello a year earlier and found Spello, nearby towns (like Montefalco, Bevagna, and Assisi) and the surrounding landscape (olive trees, vineyards, rolling hills) wonderful.
Returning home, we decided to rent a place in Spello the following year and looked online at many options - from hotel rooms to homes for rent. We chose to rent "Our House in Spello," and it proved to be a very good choice. We highly recommend it to you.
Although the house can accommodate additional people, we rented it for just the two of us. This gave us a master bedroom (which was thankfully air conditioned and extremely quiet), a second bedroom (also air conditioned, where we kept our suitcases and which we used as a dressing room), and the full use of the kitchen (also air conditioned), sitting area, and two bathrooms.
Much better than any hotel room, and very reasonably priced!
The house has a wonderful location in the town. There is a welcome basket of extra virgin olive oil, jams, and other goodies in the kitchen. There are also basic "provisions" in the house like soaps, shampoos, laundry detergent - making your arrival and stay that much easier.
Everything works, and every room is immaculate. The kitchen appliances, kitchen drawers, cabinetry, silverware, and pots are absolutely spotless (which is not always the case with rentals). The bedrooms, bathrooms, floors, linens - all clean and cared for.
Renting this home gave us the location we wanted, multiple rooms to
use, an extremely quiet bedroom, a spacious kitchen, and the air conditioning that we needed in key rooms (because it was unseasonably warm in Umbria this June).
The tiled, spiral stairs between each floor were manageable for us, but anyone considering renting this property should be aware that bringing suitcases up these stairs can be challenging, and going up and down the spiral stairs requires a certain level of fitness.
All of our communications with Desiree - from start to finish - were a pleasure. Reasonable, informative, helpful, responsive, friendly, and honest.
Check-in and check-out were super simple (the key was waiting for us in the lock-box at the front door on arrival, and we were told to just leave the key on the kitchen table when we departed).
Altogether, a very good experience - and we recommend it to you!
Great apartment in medieval hilltop town!
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
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
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.
Perfect in every way!
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.
A true Umbrian treasure.
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!
