Stylish apartment located in the heart of Spello: probably one of our best apartments in an historic town.
The apartment features a large rooftop terrace with great 360° views.
It is on the top floor of a period building, with elevator. It has been recently restored, perfectly appointed, spacious and sunny. The bedrooms are air conditioned.
The property combines tradition and modernity: resin floors combined with wooden beams and terracotta tiles of the ceilings, modern kitchen, modern bathrooms and some furniture coming form antique markets.
1 bedroom with double bed (the bed can be split in 2 single beds, if needed) and 1 double bedroom (queen size bed); 2 bathrooms with shower (one with shower and tub). Large living room with fireplace and skylight, dining room with sofa area and windows with scenic views, fully fitted kitchen (oven, microwave, kettle, toaster, dishwasher).
In the large terrace, during the good season, there is a table and chairs, a large comfortable sofa with cushions and vases of flowers. The property owners are not allowed to put umbrellas or gazebo for security reasons (the apartment is right in the centre town and an accidental fall of the umbrella, could be very dangerous for people walking in the square below), but is possible to ask for a sun umbrella to use temporarely and close after each use. The rooftop terrace is perfect for a brekfast or a dinner admiring the amazing views overlooking the entore historic town and the countryside all around.
Highlights: Elevator, air conditioning, high quality finishings, located in the most beautiful area of Spello, close to everything: restaurants, shops, artcrafts, museums, monuments, nature walks. Free and safe parking nearby. Very central but quiet. Car not essential, Spello has a train station connecting the town to the most important Umbrian cities and towns, to Rome (central station and airport station) and Tuscany. Car driver service can be provided, on request.

Spello, is a charming stone town 8 kms away from Assisi, it is a sort of valuable book composed of many pages of which to browse quietly. Starting from the south (the area of "Borgo") climbing up to Porta dell’Arce (the "Belvedere"), you can visually cover the history of a place where you can breathe in the ancient Umbrian, Roman, Medieval and Renaissance presence. On top of a medieval tower stands an olive-tree, symbol of peace and of the most typical local product, the extra virgin olive oil.
The town fascinates with marvelous architecture, compressed in a rather tiny area.
The Medieval town was built on the Roman foundations. The hikers love to get lost in the town’s streets web. In summer its streets get decorated with hundreds of flowers and justly is called one "of the most beautiful villages in Italy". Spello is all texture—rose coloured stone walls, crumbling terracotta roof tiles, stone pathways, and weathered wooden doors.
Wherever you will go, it will lead you somewhere nice. Actually, it is even recommended to get lost in the streets of Spello – it enables you to feel the spirit of the village. Friendly and hospitable locals are always ready to chat and direct you.
To experience the countryside you can hike along the Roman Aqueduct above town, the path takes you through peaceful olive groves with amazing views of Spello in the distance.
A great time to visit is in June during the INFIORATA FLOWER FESTIVAL when the streets are covered with intricate flower designs.
These days, more than 2000 people work for about three months in preparation for the all-night labor before the feast day. They now lay out 80 glorious floral petal carpets which will cover the streets and piazzas of medieval Spello on the morning of the Feast of Corpus Domini.
Another great period is in September, October and November, when the olives are harvested and is produced the famed extra virgin olive oil, celebrated in many local food festival in Spello itself and in the surrounding towns. "Frantoi Aperte" Open olive mills, is the name of the most beautiful festival of the autumnal period, in Spello and other locations, including olive mills and olive groves, there are events, demonstrations, olive oil and food tastings, tours and concerts. That is also the period of the wine production. Olive and wine are some of the most genuine and appreciated products of this area of Italy.
It is possible to reach the building by car and there is a spacious lift in the building, however from the entrance door of the apartment to the living and sleeping floor, there are 19 steps. They are comfortable steps, quite large, however we don't recommend this property to guests with severe mobility restrictions. In addition, from the living area there are a few more steps to reach the rooftop terrace. The apartment itself is spacious and comfortable, on one level.
Spello is the perfect base for exploring Umbria, with easy access to other towns by train and car.
