Spoleto Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Self-catering in central Spoleto, easy access to Rome, Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto

Large, private, pool available to all our guests, 7 miles away, free of charge, at our Villa Marianna.

Terrazza Bella and Bella Due are next door to each other and can be rented together at a discounted rate, to sleep up to 8 persons - please enquire for a quote.

In the 14C Rocca Dei Perugini, the stronghold for the Perugini when they conquered Spoleto, located in a pedestrian area, Terrazza Bella + Bella Due are stylish, self catering apartments, 1 with a stunning terrace, both with balconies. Terrazza Bella has a large sitting/dining room with a fitted kitchen along one side + a balcony off both bedrooms. Bella Due has a large sitting/dining room with a separate galley kitchen + a balcony off both bedrooms. Both balconies overlook Porta Fuga. You enter the apartments through a Roman stone passage that leads to the stairs/lift up to the apartments. Here, you are treated to all the advantages of contemporary living. Yet, at the same time, the atmosphere in this beautifully restored palazzo is laced with antiquity. It was here that the battle between the Spoletini and the Perugini raged for 2 years until the Spoletini regained their city.

SPOLETO HISTORIC PEDESTRIAN CENTRE: In the midst of shops, bars and the largest selection of fantastic restaurants, all offering a diversity of dishes from local black truffles to pastas and paper thin, bubbly, crispy crust, piping hot pizzas, Spoleto is not a touristy place and, therefore, prices are good, competitive local prices. The local wines eg Trebbiano, Grecchetto, Montefalco, Orvieto... are to die for. You will hardly notice the price of it on your bill. You can choose from amazing shoe, bag and clothes shops, any shape or size, designer label or otherwise. And, there are churches and monuments on street corners, under arches, through tunnelled alleyways, peppered hither and thither, as you meander along the picturesque cobbled lanes, every angle, a work of art. Fatal to take your camera out. You will obsessively do nothing but take photos ! The local bars are filled with friendly locals and the owners will warmly welcome you. The passeggiata is where everyone meets and is joyful, especially over aperitivi.

BUS, TRAIN OR CAR: From Spoleto train station, a 10 mins walk, it is possible to get to practically anywhere in Italy eg 1 hr 20 mins to Rome, 4/5 hours to Venice and Naples, 30 mins to Perugia.... An easy walk along a flat boulevard road, also stuffed with shops and bars ! From the nearest bus stop, a 5 mins walk, you can catch a bus to Norcia, which will take you on a sensationally beautiful drive along the Valnerina, for about 1 hr 45 mins, passing through mountain scenery, climbing higher and higher. Or, by car, you can continue further to the heart-stoppingly, amazing Gran Piano and see the tiny hick town of Castellucio peeking through swirling mists. On a great plane, surrounded by mountains, the world spilling beneath you, your heart will miss a beat. In Castellucio, you can dine on the finest lentils and white truffles. Nearer to home, by car, it is easy to visit Todi, Gubbio, Orvieto, Perugia, Spello and Assisi, all within a 45 mins heavenly drive.

SPOLETO : WALKING, HIKING OR BIKING: You can walk to the top of Spoleto, passing the famous Duomo, and reach Spoleto's finest 2 monuments, the Rocca and Il Ponte. Takes about 15 mins. Then, you can do a circular walk around the Rocca, which is spectacularly beautiful, as you see Spoleto sprawling below you. Or, you can take the escalator from the bottom to the top of Spoleto. Then, pausing at the bar at the top for a prosecco, you can continue across the famous and stunning looking, arched bridge, directly into the mountains, and, either do another circular walk, passing across valleys, mountains and dales, ending up in Piazza Garibaldi, at the bottom of Spoleto, or, continue up through the Sacred Mountains to Monteluco. Or, you can take the bus from the bottom to the top, which takes about 10 minutes. If you are a cyclist, you can hire bikes locally and cycle along the river bank, all the way to Assisi, passing Campello and Trevi along the way.

About Norma Williams

We were retired ! We 'fell' into our holiday rental business by accident. It started as a hobby after someone pleaded with us to rent them our house in San Mamiliano, while we were away.

We now have 2 major partners and between us, we offer about 40 very diverse villas, apartments and pool properties, both in central Spoleto and close by. Please see them all on my personal website, the address of which you will find at the bottom of the HomeAway page of this property.

However, we still do not regard ourselves as 'proper business people' because we care far more about contributing to making our guests' holidays fantastic than we do about making money.

We hope you stay with us !

Norma Williams purchased this apartment in 2003

Our Month in Spoleto

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from our 29 day visit to Spoleto in our lovely apartment, La Terrazza Bella. Included for our daily pleasure and enjoyment were:

· 2 spacious bedrooms

· A large bath with shower (and always plenty of good hot water)

· A large, well-equipped kitchen (with full sized refrigerator/freezer and dishwasher) overlooking a charming terrace

· Excellent internet service. With 24/7 internet service and the use of email, we were completely satisfied. Kudos to our hosts for this outstanding amenity.

· A reliable elevator in good working order just outside our front door

· A late model washing machine in good working order

· A rear balcony with a charming view

· A private parking lot with our own reserved parking space

· The use of a cell phone provided by our hosts

· Regularly scheduled linen/towel replacement and apartment cleaning

· A welcoming bottle of wine, cheese, and other assorted goodies for an enjoyable repast upon arrival

And as if all of the above were not enough, we were the grateful recipients of our host's gracious willingness to meet us at the train station when we arrived in Spoleto, drive us to the car rental agency, and even take us to and from the train station on those occasions when we left the apartment for excursions to other parts of Italy. It is difficult to find adequate superlatives to describe the memorable times we had in Spoleto, largely due to the wonderful accommodations provided by our hostess and host, not to mention the warm, personal rapport we enjoyed with both of them. Add in the superb location of the apartment, surrounded by shops, coffee bars, restaurants, and marvelous medieval places of interest and you have an ideal, unforgettable travel experience.

Owner's Response: Please note that for larger parties (up to 8 persons), you can book the apartment next door in addition to Terrazza Bella. It is called Bella Due and it also has Broadband internet, either cable or WiFi. I advertise these 2 apartments, which I call "Terrazza Bella Due" at a specially reduced rate - it is 1 of the 3 units that you see on this advert. If you book Terrazza Bella Due, you get : 4 bedrooms, 2 large sitting/dining rooms, each with fitted kitchens, 2 bathrooms/WCs, 1 large terrace, 1 patio area and balconies off all 4 bedrooms, overlooking the pedestrian, mediaeval streets.

Very well located

  • 4 of 5

Terrazza Bella has a really good location in Spoleto - really close to the "escalator" to take you up the hill to the Rocca and Sacred Hills and on the main street where the locals walk for their early evening promenade. But the flat was extremely quiet and peaceful even though central. Everything we needed was in the flat including English channels on the TV. The heating and hot water were very efficient and the landlord very helpful - he even picked us up and dropped us off at the railway station. I highly recommend Spoleto as a town to visit - it was even nicer than I expected and wonderful if you like history. I also recommend Terrazza Bella as a place to stay.

Beautiful Historic Spoleto out your front door

  • 5 of 5

I had the privilege of staying in Terrazza Bella for two months during February and March. The town is quiet this time of year yet there is plenty to do and see in Spoleto and nearby villages and towns. My hosts and owners of the property, Laurie and Norma offered the greatest hospitality from booking to pick upon my arrival until my departure. Laurie even stopped by a grocery store so I could pick up some things before he delivered me to the apartment. They also provided a nice welcome package of olive oil, pasta, wine, coffee, tea etc. During my stay he was a phone call away if needed. The apartment with two bedrooms was spacious, light, comfortable and had a fully equipped kitchen with everything necessary to prepare full meals. There is a lovely terrace off the main living area and a balcony overlooking the pedestrian street off the two bedrooms. The apartment is comfortable for up to 4 persons. There was plenty of room for family that came to stay. Laurie was more than helpful and gracious to pick up family members when they arrived. The train is only a 10 minute walk but with luggage this was a really appreciated service. The location of the apartment with it's close proximity to the train station makes it an ideal location for exploring other lovely Umbrian towns. Assisi was less than 45 minutes by train, It was a favorite destination. Orvieto, Perugia and other lovely towns and cities are easily accessible. Rome is only an hour and half by train. Norcia and Montefalco are great day trips by bus. Beautiful historic Spoleto is enough in itself. It is an extraordinary place and there is more than enough to see and do. There are Roman sites and beautiful churches. The walk up to the top of town, to the Rocca and Ponte delle Torri is worth every step. There is a mobile stairway to get you to the top without the strenuous climb, but if you are able, walking up the narrow streets and past the shops enjoying the sights along the way is worth the effort. The view from the top of the town is amazing and it is a great place to sit and soak in the beauty. Hiking the via Francesco up to Monteluco and visiting the little church of San Francesco was a highlight. I highly recommend a visit to Spoleto. The food is delicious the people are warm, friendly and welcoming. If you stay at Terrazza Bella or any one of Norma and Laurie's properties you will have a home away from home and enjoy every minute. I cannot wait to return.

Tolle Ferienwohnung mit italienischem Flair

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zu dritt in Bella Due gelebt - ausreichend Platz für alle. Zwei Schlafzimmer, ein Bad, ein Flur mit Küche, ein wirklich großes Wohnzimmer, zwei Balkone zum draußen sitzen - alles liebevoll und mit Geschmack eingerichtet. Wir haben kein Auto - Laurie hat uns mit dem ganzen Koffern vom Bahnhof abgeholt und wieder dort hingebracht (zu Fuß sind es ca. 10 Minuten - ohne Gepack). Die Wohnung ist ein idealer Ausgangspunkt für Erkundungen von Spoleto (wunderbare kleine Stadt, älter als Rom, wie in einem Film), für Wanderungen in den Bergen (zB auf den Monteluco, auf den Spuren von Franziskus), nach Assisi und Perugia, sogar nach Rom...

Einfach wunderbar, eine dicke Empfehlung!

Bella! Bella! Bella!!!

  • 5 of 5

Terrazza Bella was everything promised in the website and so much more. My 78 year old husband and I were here several days,then he left and my daughter joined me. We had a car and explored all the lovely and historical Umbrian hill towns with great ease. The apartment was spacious and well equipped. The terrace proved to be our favorite place for dining, emailing and sipping delicious Umbrian wine. I'm a gardener and was quite impressed with the huge, healthy flowers and herbs filling every corner of the terrace. Truly lovely, and this,in late October. We're grateful to the gracious owners for their great information about local sights, restaurants and shops. We are already planning our next trip, probably renting several of their properties in this same building. Grazie!

A perfect apartment in Umbria...

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Norma and Laurie for your generous hospitality. The apartment in Spoleto was absolutely perfect for us. We loved the roof garden, the well-appointed kitchen and your "welcome pack". Having a parking bay, washing machine, internet access, the lift and being located right in the centre of your beautiful town was "icing on the cake" - and the restaurant and touring recommendations you gave us were "spot on". We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this very roomy, bright, comfortable, well-appointed and spotlessly clean apartment as an ideal location from which to explore Umbria.

Strolling within the walls of this fairy-tale city, one can see monuments, churches, towers and all kinds of other buildings of historical interest as well as works of Art galore. Spoleto boasts numerous world famous institutions such as The Italian Centre for Studies on the Early Middle Ages, the Festival of Two Worlds and The Experimental Opera Theatre. And, if you walk for a few minutes up to the Cathedral, you’ll see an example of what is arguably the most beautiful piazza in the whole of Italy, featured in one of Brigitte Bardot’s early films and where her character lived and died.

However, it is not essential to be steeped in history to be able to appreciate the spirituality and awesome beauty of Spoleto. The spirit of its fascinating past is immersed in every stone and cobble. Within this mediaeval setting, you can also enjoy the finest wines, the best truffles, the most mouth-watering olive-oils and the best shopping in the world in a myriad of bars, restaurants and shops.

Other Activities: white-water rafting, ten-pin bowling, wine tasting, galleries, churches, olive-oil tasting
