Spello House Rental Photos and Description
A charming indepedent house in the town of Spello, a little village in Umbria not far from the famous town of Assisi. Spello belongs to "Borghi piu belli d'Italia" (the most beautiful villages in Italy), an association that comprises only the towns that have succeeded in preserving their monuments and artistic masterpieces in perfect architectural harmony, along with a quality of life that can infuse a new rhythm and taste into our times.
The town is built entirely from the pinkish limestone of the mountain it sits on: as the sun goes down the entire hamlet gleams with an extraordinary pink hue that gives a particular light to the houses clinging to the hillside, the roofs and the ancient walls. Surrounded by it's fortress walls, in its narrow lanes, baskets of flowers hanging off the windowsills and doorways, with charateristic tower houses and lively squares reminicent of ancient times. Each May, the town celebrates the feast of the Infiorata where the streets are carpeted with pictures created by flowers. It is a remarkable event, and draws tourists from around the world.
This lovely little town has roots from Roman times, layered with Medieval and Renaissance architecure lending it to be one of the most romantic and charming villages in Italy. The town itself is a work of art, and this lovely little home has the same magical characteristics, it is a real gem and you will fall in love with this home and its town.
Restoration was completed on this house in July 2010 and is located just 20 meters from Il Sogno Dolci, the owner's first house. It is possible to rent the two houses for larger groups.
Enter from the charming and quiet street into the foyer area where you can hang your coats and then walk across your private garden and open the French door to the open concept living/eat-in kitchen. From the living room a short hallway takes you to a bedroom with queen bed and doors opening to a small balcony and incredible views of the Umbrian countryside. Across the hall is a single bedroom and between them is a bathroom with walk-in shower.
