In the popular, lower, historic centre of Spoleto, conveniently located next to the escalator that joins the bottom of Spoleto to the top, Spoleto Gold is a spacious, luxury and contemporary apartment.
Perfectly located in an area where the shops, bars and restaurants are more concentrated than in the rest of Spoleto. It is immediately inside the wall, in the lane, Interna Dell Mura. And, it is a 10 mins stroll to the train station.

Part of a group of 6 luxury apartments (refurbished to luxury – Dec 2014), with a large private, infinity pool, 0.7 miles from the historic centre of Spoleto, Spoleto By The Pool:APT 5 and APT 6 totally occupy a 1 storey cottage besides the pool, separated from the pool by a lawn. APT 6 is the most private of all 6 of the apartments. Magnificent views from all its front windows of mountains, pastures and the pool.
While a car is not necessary to access Spoleto By The Pool, we do recommend one, unless you are the fit types, used to walking uphill and do not wear high heels.
Spoleto By The Pool (APTs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 + 6) is situated on a hill, with sensational views, and is 10 mins walk to the train station.
SPOLETO CENTRAL: With its 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, 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, stuffed with shops and bars ! The local buses take you to nearby villages and/or you can even 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 radius.
WALKING, HIKING OR BIKING: Walk to the top of Spoleto (20 mins), along the higgledy, piggledy arched and cobbled lanes, passing the famous Duomo, and you reach Spoleto's finest 2 monuments, the Rocca and Il Ponte. 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 brand new escalator, which starts outside the entrance to Spoleto Gold, 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 Sacred 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 !
