HILLTOP MEDIEVAL ESCAPE WITH PANORAMIC VIEW OF COUNTRYSIDE

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.

Great Rental in a Great Town

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 21, 2014
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
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.

Charming Spello

We stayed at Casa Spello - in the augustus unit-for a week in late September and found this to be one of the best rentals we have ever encountered. It's even better than the photos The owners have done a beautiful job creating not just a place to stay but a very comfortable home. Spello is a charming hill town that has great restaurants and shops, is not overly touristy, and a perfect base to explore the many wonderful sights of Umbria. Highly recommended!

My husband and I stayed at Casa Spello this September and loved it. We were so happy in Spello (truffles and wine) that we added two days on to our visit moving from the garden apartment to the Cleopatra. Nadia and Gina made the move effortless. Very comfortable attractive apartments, wonderful views from the garden and we enjoyed the fresh figs we picked to have with our morning cappuccinos. We'd stay here again anytime.

A charming stay at Casa Spello

"A charming stay at Casa Spello"

My husband and I stayed in July 2013 at Casa Spello and we loved it. Our townhouse was charming and quaint. It had everything we needed. Casa Spello is nestled in the mountain and has beautiful views of Umbria. It also has the most lovely garden with plum trees and capers and rosemary bushes. It was a joy to sit in the garden and see the beautiful view of vinyards. Our stay at Casa Spello was very comfortable and enjoyable. We met the owner and she is lovely and always very helpful. We can't wait to come back. G & A from NYC (Galit)

MAGNIFICENT UMBRIAN APARTMENT

  • Submitted: Sep 20, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
My husband and I stayed for 4 nights in May in the upper apartment. The apartment was comfortable (the 1/2 bath on the first floor was convenient), the kitchen more than adequate for cooking and the bed and full bath were very nice.
Nadia, the wonderful woman who meets you in the square to escort you to the Casa, is more than helpful. We arrived with too much luggage and she carried the big ones! She also maintains the apartments so that they are very clean.
Spello also has some excellent restaurants and the people of the town are helpful. It's a good place to stay while making day trips to the many surrounding hill towns.
