A CASTLE TOWER ABOVE THE SPOLETO VALLEY: ITALIAN DESIGN AND POOL/SPA ACCESS

Spoleto Castle Rental Photos and Description

An elegant home with room for 3-5 in a spectacular setting

Enjoy the wonderful art, culture and nature of Umbria from this beautiful home within the ancient stone walls of the castle of Campello Alto. The tower property opens onto the magnificent old walls and a contemporary garden with lots of outdoor space for dining, sunning and experiencing a privileged stay in this unique location. Throughout the house you will find furnishings featuring the best of contemporary Italian design. The ground floor opens up from the sunny terrace to a modern kitchen, dining room and a living room with fireplace. Up the stairs are a double bedroom with sofa bed and private entrance to the back sculpture garden and a centre room with single sofa bed and half bath. At the top of the tower is the master bedroom with queen-sized bed and en-suite bath with shower. Only three other families still live within this jewel amongst Umbrian castles and you can feel as if the castle were your realm, dominating the olive-clad hills of this world-famous village. The foot of the hill brings you to the park of the Fonti del Clitunno, the placid waters of which have been written about by poets through the ages from Virgil to Byron and up to the present and from there the waters lead to the Unesco heritage site of the Tempietto--a stunning treasure of the Longobards. The village of Campello lies between the castle and the park and offers all services, shops and easy access to the main highway north and south to all the sights of Umbria and beyond. Our guests have access to our private pool just a 5-minute (2.5 km) drive uphill in a beautiful wooded location. We provide one complimentary entrance for two to a nearby luxury spa and can provide you with additional entrance passes at very favorable rates--just ask. We have a second rental property adjacent to the tower so please let us know if your group is larger as we can accommodate up to 9 adults or 10 guests total at both properties. We have another apartment in the village below so that you can spread out if you are as many as 12 people travelling together--please ask!

Come enjoy life at the castle and, if you have time for an extended stay in the region, consider an additional week at our apartment in the centre of Assisi or ask about our holiday homes on Monte Conero on the Adriatic coast and at the exclusive Porto Cervo resort on the Sardinian 'Emerald' coast if you'd like to add a beach holiday to your Italian tour.

Not all the Accommodation and facilities on the list were available at the house like internet, bikes or barbecue, but overall the experience was very positive and recommendable for anyone looking for a relaxed and peacfull atmosphere.

Owner's Response: We're very glad to hear how much you enjoyed your stay at the Castle, but sorry to know you didn't find everything you'd expected. The barbecue and bicycles aren't left at the house as there's little storage, so we bring by the barbecue and leave the bicycles down at the Fonti where there is an excellent bike path nearby. We encourage our guests to please let us know what they would like and we're always happy to respond!

A MAGIC PLACE IN A SURREAL ATMOSPHERE

  • 5 of 5
I spent my past New year vacations with my friends in this fantastic apartment.
Newly restored , new furnitures mostly of design,comfortable, warm, accessible, stylish. We were really positively surprised when we arrived there. With the day light from Campello Alto you can have one of the most beauty views of Spoleto Valley.
The village itself is antic, all houses in stones, beauty hills around and the few people living the village were really warm and friendly.

Lovely vacation although in winter ...I will have to plan to come back next summer.
Many thanks to the owners

ASSOLUTAMENTE FANSTASTICO

  • 5 of 5
Abbiamo trascorso con la mia famiglia una splendida settimana in una location veramente di pregio. La perfetta ristrutturazione con l'arredamento di design di altissima qualità crea la sensazione di vivere in ambiente davvero speciale.
La tranquillità di vivere all'interno di un antico borgo praticamente da soli nel silenzio ci ha fatto pensare a come si poteva vivere centinaia di anni fa. L'accoglienza, la gentilezza e la disponibilità dei proprietari è stata veramente insuperabile.
Consigliamo vivamente questa location vicina anche a molti luoghi di interesse culturale e paesaggistico.

PONTE DELLE FAVOLE

  • 5 of 5
Siamo stati in questa bellissima terra con nostro figlio piccolo e un'altra coppia di amici con figli.
La casa è bellissima, arredata con gusto e attenzione, ed è in un piccolo gioiello di borgo quasi tutto per noi dove regnava la pace e i rimuri più forti erano uccellini e rintocchi delle campane.
I proprietari, gentilissimi, ci hanno dato tenti suggerimenti e fatto godere un pomeriggio da sogno in Spa! Ci avevano anche invitato a restare...magari averlo potuto fare! Ma il lavoro chiama...
Ci torneremo sicuramente dato che ci sono intorno tante cose belle da vedere e dell'ottima cucina da assaporare (il tutto è nato dalla visita che volevamo fare a Giorgione!!!), magari senza bimbi per goderci la casa ancora di più e accendere il caminetto!!
Consigliatissimo per rilassarsi e fare un intervallo...ancor più se romantico!!!
