With free WiFi internet access, this fabulous apartment is in the historic centre of Spoleto, buzzing with shops, bars and restaurants as well as ancient monuments, churches and museums at every twist and turn of Spoleto’s arched and cobbled streets. The whole area is pedestrian. The best location in central Spoleto !

A car is NOT necessary as there is easy access to the train station and the bus terminus. From the train station, you can get to practically anywhere in Italy. And, from the bus station, there are myriad of really interesting journeys you can take from little local rides around the hills, visiting a diversity of hill-top villages, to places as far afield as Castelluccio and Norcia – spectacular rides !

While your immediate surroundings are modern, the context you are in dates back to the days when Spoleto was a Latin colony and Roman community.

Staying in this elegant townhouse, you have all the advantages of contemporary, open-air living while still experiencing what it’s like to live in the most ancient and beautiful part of Spoleto. Meander at ease through the ancient streets, past flower shops, wine and truffle shops, many boutiques and shoe shops, bars and cafes and, of course, a myriad of interesting restaurants – cheap and “expensive” (nothing here is expensive compared to other city prices)… up to the famous La Rocca and the Duomo or down to “il borgo”, the main shopping drag of Corso Garibaldi and Piazza Garibaldi with all its bars, a restaurant, a hairdresser, a chemist, a butcher, a baker, a cake shop and the most ancient church in town, San Gregorio !

So, if you are interested in being in the historical centre of Spoleto, surrounded by some of the world’s most famous monuments, churches and sites and, at the same time having easy access by local transport to places like Asissi, Perugia, Orvieto, Montefalco, Trevi, Todi and Rome, not to mention the gastronomic treats, famous (and cheap !) local wines…..and designer shops, then this is the place for you !

There are the full range of local shops, restaurants, supermarkets, banks and cash machines – everything you’d expect to find in a sophisticated city centre – just scaled down since Spoleto is more a large fairy-tale village and has the advantage of everything you could wish for within easy reach….especially, ice-cream, cappucino, great wines and truffles !!! The clothes shops ! Not to mention the galleries, museums, theatres and churches that are dotted all around you; and, you will find yourself entranced by the beauty and sprituality that pervades every cobble-stone in every one of its medieval street.

For the sporty, there is a flash Gym, UNIQUE and a tennis club, the latter within walking distance of almost anywhere you are staying, both of which offer temporary memberships.

And, there is pony trekking that takes place just outside of Spoleto. The stables are placed in a exquisite environment and, you can either go on long treks into the mountains or just do an hour or so in the nearby woods – all supervised, the level of supervision depending on your level of expertise. 14 is the minimum age to be unsupervised.

You can park outside the walls, free of charge. Or, you can hire a car space within the walls for 50 euros/week.

The private, shared pool at Villa Marianna, included in the rate, is 7 miles away, along a spectacularly beautiful and quiet road, occasionally used for the famous, once a year, Giro D’Italia cycling race.

Spoleto is akin to a giant, fairy-tale castle. Sprinkled with bars, restaurants and shops, peppered with piazzas, Spoleto sits magestically amidst a maze of tunnelled, cobbled lanes and alley-ways, all leading skywards to the famous Rocca, the aquaduct and, some of the best views in the world. A surreal setting, a stage-set in the making, fringed by mountains, olive groves, vineyards, mediaeval monasteries, towns, cities and tiny hill-top villages – all beckoning a visit, Spoleto is truly a temptress. Succumb to her beauty and you must use all your will-power to leave. Quite simply, Spoleto is the most captivating city in Italy, never mind Umbria, Venice and Florence, being on a par.

Venice has the water. Florence has the Uffici. Spoleto has the mountains. All three have a history to be reckoned with. All three bedazzle us with their rich cultures, their European, aristocratic connections and their sheer beauty. But, Spoleto has the upper hand for the world traveller. It resists tourism with its associated inflated rates and tacky goods on sale ! You are invited to visit Spoleto, but, not as a tourist. You will be welcomed like a long lost member of the family ! Treated like a king. And, you will pay the same rates as all the locals, especially when you pay attention to all our recommended restaurants, bars and gelaterias.

Subsequently, Spoleto is in demand with those in search of “the authentic Italian” experience, love beauty and who wish to base themselves in the centre of Italy because, from Spoleto, you can get to practically anywhere else in Italy easily and cheaply within minutes to a few hours.

Until now, it had always been too expensive to stay in Spoleto. Holiday-makers were forced to stay outside of Spoleto and drive in. We have changed all that. We have “unlocked” Spoleto, with our range of centrally located apartments and town houses, at rates that are competitive with our “out of town” apartments, making Spoleto affordable for you, at last !

The beaches of Bolsena lake are 90 minutes drive and of Trasimeno, 2 hours drive. It also takes about 2 hours drive to reach the Adriatic coast. Piediluco beach is about 1 hours drive. The drives to all these places take in sensational views especially the drive to the Adriatic, which passes Norcia on the way – and, if you detour to the left on the way for a further 20 minutes, you can also visit the famous Gran Piano, famous for its natural flower displays in Spring and the white truffle.

The nearest airports are Rome and Ancona – about 90 minutes drive to Spoleto – and Perugia – about 40 minutes drive to Spoleto.

Assisi, Foligno, Montefalco, Spello and Bevagna – 30 minutes drive away, Perugia – 45 minutes, Todi – 1 hour and 30 mins, Orvieto – 1 hour, San Gemini – 30 minutes, Trevi – 20 minutes, Rome – 1 hour/10 mins by train, Florence – 2 hours and 30 mins, Naples – 3 hours and 30 mins and Venice – 5 hours (best by train).

We also cater for large parties of between 8 to 40 person re our 16 central Spoleto apartments - please ask for details.
