Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Open the pretty painted door from the street and a stylish, white-painted stone entrance lobby sets the scene. A bright Moroccan rug and cushions add a dash of colour and a collection of practical shopping baskets is lined up under a bench. Opposite is a coat and hat rack. One’s eye is drawn along a stone path and raised flower- beds to the spacious garden on your left; ahead is the cane-covered outdoor seating area adjacent to the kitchen-living room.

Cooking, living and dining

One’s first impressions are of a light and airy space. An arched doorway leads to the 2 bedrooms and bathroom. On the right is the kitchen and dining area, to the left a comfortable, linen-covered sofa opposite the fireplace. A French-style café table and chairs, linen blinds and curtains all add character to the open-plan space. The floors throughout are a soft, taupe resin finish and the accent colour is Hermes orange. Chic, cheerful and modern.

Master bedroom

With breathtaking views over farmlands to the hills beyond this is a very romantic retreat. The wall hung clothes hooks were copied from an old design and there are linen-lined baskets for clothes. A pair of vintage, red velvet chairs pull together the colours of the Moroccan rug and the curtains. Nothing of the modern world is to be seen from this wonderful room - just the Italian landscape at it’s very best.

China’s room – single bed

Smaller but not tiny the 2nd bedroom is fresh and bright with its red/orange and white colour scheme. A cosy Tyrol blanket adds texture to this charming room. Clothes hooks and baskets are provided as the master bedroom.

Bathroom

Both bedrooms share the gleaming white modern bathroom. A large shower, good directional lighting, an oversize hot towel rail and wall mirror combine to make bathing a delight.

The cottage has about 55 square meters

The garden

100 square meters

Umbria has an excellent climate where being outside, dining or resting and reading is one of our greatest holiday pleasures, especially after long days exploring the region. Andrea has designed and planted the garden to allow plenty of space to sunbathe or to recline on a shady day-bed piled with soft pillows. Evenings are ideal to enjoy a glass of excellent wine on the terrace. For many people the most vivid holiday memories are those of warm evenings, spent with family or friends in a scented garden.

Keywords: LA CASETTA (The Cottage)

Just a few steps up the old cobbled street from Villa Buonanotte Barbanera and the main square "Piazza della Repubblica" sits a guest cottage of great charm which has been completely re-designed and restored in a fresh contemporary style by Andrea Falkner Campi.

“Like the Villa I have created a home-from-home using my favourite palette of colours and decorative items found on my travels.” Although the Cottage is available for a minimum of 3 days with flexible arrival and departure times it is nonetheless fully equipped for much longer stays.

It is also ideal as extra accommodation for a larger party taking the Villa.

About Andrea Maria Falkner

“As a frequent traveller myself I understand the many aspects of quality accommodation and the importance of attention to every detail. I have collected interesting eclectic rugs, textiles and furniture on my travels, which imbue the house with character and what I believe is an all-important sense of home.”

Andrea Maria Falkner purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Andrea Maria Falkner chose Umbria

Because it's so close to my other property Buonanotte Barbanera.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Spello and La Cassata. It is a beautiful hilltop village of real quality in presentation, amenities and particularly great Umbrian food. Andrea was rightfully very proud of her house and very responsive to any needs of her guests. A wonderful way to enjoy the beauty of Italy and this region. No hesitation in recommending.

Perfect little hideaway...

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully decorated hideaway right in the very centre of charming Spello. Andrea is wonderfully warm and welcoming and her "tips and suggestions" book absolutely invaluable.

If I could I would move right in!

A little slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very overdue review. I stayed here for four nights with my daughter and her best friend. This little cottage was just the absolute highlight of our three weeks travelling together. Spello was the most beautiful village and we really felt like locals after a day or so. The cottage is just a block from the town centre and we could wander back and forth and explore. We couldn't fault the cottage, it is exactly as the pictures depict and we loved the way Andrea had decorated! We had wonderful picnic lunches in the beautiful garden! Everything was just perfect and Andrea was such a lovely friendly host who made us feel so welcome! I will definitely be back one day and if anyone is visiting Spello this is absolutely the best place to stay.

Charming Cottage in Authentic Umbria

  • 5 of 5

Last summer, my husband and I stayed with friends in Andrea's gorgeous larger villa in Spello. When my daughter and I decided to return this fall for a shorter visit to Umbria, I knew immediately I wanted to stay in La Casetta. It did not disappoint: The cottage reflects Andrea's unique style that pairs chic with comfort and every convenience. The house is situated on a quintessential Umbrian cobblestone street, just blocks from the town center, and nestled next to a charming, private garden. From the front windows you can view the expansive countryside below. Andrea is the most gracious host, eager to share information about the town, nearby attractions (Assisi and Perugia are nearby favorites within easy driving distance, or you can hike up Mt. Subasio to the fairytale town of Collepino). Andrea even arranged for a excellent private tour to local vineyards for us. We loved Spello for its beauty, less-known attractions, and friendliness (when my Italian failed me, one of the shopkeepers actually WALKED us to where we wanted to go). We can not wait to return to this magical place.

Beautiful La Casetta in Spello

  • 5 of 5

We experienced a magical stay of 5 nights at La Casetta. The house is beautifully and sumptuously styled, with incredible thought in all of the details. It is bright, and nestled amongst beautiful gardens, amid the enchanting upper Spello, with views of the countryside. We explored near (local restaurant La Cantina merited two visits), and far (Spello is centrally located and provides easy access to multiple Umbrian villages/towns of interest). I will always remember La Casetta as "The Happy House" - we are sure to be back as guests of the lovely owner Andrea.

Un angolo di paradiso a due ore da Roma

  • 5 of 5

Non sempre è necessario andare lontano per trovare un posto stupendo nel quale rilassarsi e stare bene. La Casetta di Spello è stato un luogo ideale per riposare e rigenerarsi, aiutati dalla bellezza della casa, del giardino, dei luoghi, dal buon cibo e dall'ottimo vino. La Casetta è così come la vedi sul sito, e abitarci è davvero piacevole come si immagina, forse anche meglio. I consigli di Andrea su ristoranti, negozi e mercatini sono fantastici.

C'è un unico risvolto negativo: andare via sarà tanto, tanto difficile!!!
