Overview

Spello Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Casa Spello's convenient location in the heart of the historic center and its outstanding panoramic views are what makes this historic medieval property one of the most desirable in the region. Staying at Casa Spello is an experience. As our guests put it: 'It oozes charm'.

Over 500 years old, Casa Spello is a newly renovated medieval property, located in the historic center of Spello, a hillside village with a rich history which predates Roman times. The property, nestled within the ancient city walls, boasts one of the most panoramic views in all of Spello; on a clear day, you can see the church towers of Assisi, Perugia, Montefalco, Foligno and the rolling hills covered in olive groves and vineyards which surround Spello. Our large garden/orchard, surrounded by an 1800 year old Roman wall, is an ideal setting for al fresco dining, sunset watching over a glass of Montefalco wine, or sipping coffee before the day's adventures.

The property is over 500 years old, restored by a local architect to provide it with all the modern amenities, while preserving its genuine medieval ambiance. It once was a home with two large 'cantinas' (cellars) where the family used to make wine and press their olive oil. It is now available for rent on a short-term or long-term basis.

Originally it was built with hand carved mountain stone - a beautiful peach color stone which came from the nearby Subasio mountain.

The apartment is elegantly furnished with antique-style and rustic furnishings, and has a fully equipped kitchen for your cooking pleasure. There is also a fireplace. It is tastefully decorated with Umbrian handcrafted fixtures such as hand-blown glass, tiles and hand-painted ceramics from nearby Deruta. This apartment sleeps two to four people. The convenient location of Casa Spello makes it easy to walk to the wonderful local restaurants, markets, boutiques and train station in this quaint village.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Magical is only one of the words to describe our time in Spello.

Thank you Gina for sharing your beautiful home. Nadia for our warm welcome. Spello made us feel at home and the food is indescribable! Our first trip to Italy will not be our last. Ciao

Perfect trip to Umbria

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to Umbria could not have been better. First, we booked our rental on Home Away at Casa Spello. Gina was professional, helpful and really started our trip off right before we even left the U.S. When we arrived Nadia met us and took us to our enchanting home away from home. It was just as pictured, very spacious ,the garden is the perfect place for a meal or sharing a bottle of wine and looking out over the gorgeous mountain view with the sunset every evening. We had the same view from our bedroom. The town of Spello is like a picture book. It is safe and friendly and we just loved it. Very close to Assisi and easy travel to all the surrounding towns by train or taxi. I would absolutely recommend Casa Spello!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from the most perfect week at Casa Spello. Our home while in Spello was Augustus and "home" is best way to describe the feeling of this spectacular apartment. It was appointed with everything we needed. Its location was ideal for exploring the charming town of Spello and surrounding Umbrian villages. And the sunsets?! Wow. We relied heavily on Gina's recommendations and, as a result, enjoyed some unique adventures and fine dining we never could have found on our own. From Nadia's warm welcome to our final goodbyes, we couldn't have asked for a better experience. We'll cherish our memories of Casa Spello for the rest of our lives ... and hope to return again one day.

What a great find

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this accommodation it is everything that is advertised and a bit more as well. The owner provides you with good information and it feels just like home! So comfortable and the little extra touches are great. We stayed in Augusta with great views from all of the windows. We hopefully will return soon it is a great base to explore Umbria.

Must Visit Town and Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is my second visit to Casa Spello. The first was for a few years back In the winter. We had a wonderful time in this beautiful apartment and in the historic and equally lovely town of Spello. This time my family and I returned in the summer and was charmed again by Spello itself as well as the ideal location and views offered by this apartment and the gelato!

Fabulous Spello Apartments

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped, gorgeous, comfortable stone apartments in the heart of Spello. Panoramic views and a private garden where you can enjoy a glass of wine in the afternoon as you watch the sun set over the Umbrian countryside. Gina was wonderful, adding enormously to the enjoyment of our trip with her tips on restaurants, places to see in Umbria and local festivals and events. To say it is like a 'home away from home' sounds a bit cliched .. but it is truly what Casa Spello delivers. We stayed for 8 nights and would return in a heartbeat!

Great Rental in a Great Town

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in the Augustus unit of Casa Spello this past October (2013). The unit was large and comfortable and provided everything we needed especially WiFi and a clothes washer. The unit was in a spectacular location on the edge of town overlooking the lovely valley below. We also enjoyed the fact that we shared a beautiful garden and patio area with the other units. It was a great place to share travel stories and sip wine while we watched the sun set. Spello is a beautiful town with great restaurants and friendly people and is a great base for exploring Umbria.
