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.
"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)
