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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our four week stay in Casa Spello met all our expectations. The apartment had a great atmosphere, fantastic views, and was beautifully warm. We enjoyed cooking many of the local foods which were readily available in nearby shops from some lovely people. Gina, the owner, was always available via email and provided very helpful information before and during our stay. Nadia (the key-holder) and Casmiro (Spello's taxi driver) were on hand to assist with queries that we had. Overall, an enlightening and unique experience.

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.

Charming Spello

  • 5 of 5
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!

Casa Spello

  • 5 of 5
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.

An Italian Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
"An Italian Home away from Home"

My friends and I recently spent five days at Casa Spello. The unit exceeded our expectations. The rooms were comfortable and having two bathrooms was great. The travel books and helpful hints Gina provided were a wonderful asset when we took day trips. Some of our favorite moments were sitting out in the garden and enjoying the breathtaking views with a glass of wine. The town of Spello is a wonderful central location that enabled us to take day trips all over Umbria without spending too much time in the car. Our last night in Spello Gina took us to one of her favorite restaurants and we had an amazing meal. It is so nice to have a place when you travel that feels like home and that is exactly what Casa Spello was to us. Thank you again for a wonderful experience. I am sure we will be back!! Tracy J.
