Garden and Pool: lush green lawns, cool underfoot, provide plenty of space for sunbathing or entertaining. The pool is set like a gem in the grass. It is the perfect place from which to admire the countryside, beautiful in the day, enchanting at sunset.

Living and Dining: subtle lighting, ancient arches and stone work, you'll feel the sense of history when you walk into the open plan living and dining room. Simply decorated with a large can sofa and bright Maroccan rug, this space is cosseting and comfortable. An expanding 1960's rosewood table with raw silk covered chairs, seats up to 10 people. Behind the table an old Chinese cupboard houses candles, cards and games, a rustic wall cupboard hides a multi channel Sat TV from Bang&Olufsen. A set of glass doors open onto the covered patio while dining area is close to the kitchen.

Kitchen: a real home - away - from home requires an attractive and well equipped kitchen. Although the style is reminiscent of Sweden and Provence, this is not a basic holiday kitchen. Everyhting is provided. From aprons to a wide selection of the table linens, to fine Riedel glasses and a mighty La Cornue range cooker.

It features a king size bed, an ancient fireplace and a grand old library flanked by a pair of antique chairs. Satelite TV

Ethnic Bedroom: set above the master bedroom with the same dazzling country views, this bedroom dons a less traditional style. The spirit of Morocco and India enchoes in the warm colors and rich textiles, teamed with cool, limed oak floors and white walls. The bedroom is on 2 levels. The lower area is furnished with an Indian charpoy daybed; on the upper area a beautiful Indian marriage quilt covers the low bed, which, instead of a headboard, features an exotic wall deocration. Satelite TV; En-suite bathroom with large shower.

Garden Room: walk across the garden to access the charming bedroom - a romantic secluded retreat. Furnished with a metal bed from a family home it is decorated simply and comfortably. The reds and greens of Designers Guild compete in color with artwork bought in Marrakech. Within the room is a fully equipped shower room. TV. Being able to step out of the bed and into the garden is a real treat.

Studio: (4 th bedroom):

from the living room, walk up a broad stone staircase to reach the large mezzanine space. Oak floors and vaulted walls and ceiling. One wall retains an original church figurative painting. The studio was conceived as a place to listen to music or just to relax and read. With a full size sofa bed and its own bathroom at the foot of the stairs, it can easily be used as a 4th bedroom.

About Andrea Maria Falkner

I am a trained hotelier who lives nearby. As a frequent traveller myself I understand the many aspects of quality accommodation and the importance of attention to detail. I have collected eclectic rugs, textiles and furniture on my travels, which imbue the house with character and a warm sense of home. I am happy to organize private cooking classes and wine tastings or anything else (Shopping Sightseeing etc)

Andrea Maria Falkner purchased this villa in 1995

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a second 3-week stay at the villa. As the villa is situated on Spello's wall it offers you both spectacular views as immediate access to a genuine Italian village. The villa is beautifully decorated - a true home away from home with all the modern facilities inside an ancient chapel. There is nothing like it. And let's not forget the great outdoor terrace and garden. Spello itself is a truly charming village with some great restaurants, bars, shops and monuments. Touristic but certainly not to much. In the surroundings there are many other incredible places to visit - Spoleto, Assisi, Castelucio... assuring the best possible holiday combining a wonderful home to relax at and the possibilities for many activities.

The Villa is outstanding and is perfectly located with a magnificent view. It is an ideal place to explore Umbria from. It is equipped with everything to make your stay really enjoyable.

Andrea is a very caring and organised owner and went out of her way to make our stay very easy. I have no hesitation in recommending the Villa.

We had the most wonderful week here in Andrea's beautifuland comfortable house. The views are spectacular, my kids have commented several times that they are almost feel unreal, so beautiful and pituresque. We loved the pool and spend a lot of time enjoying the garden, Andrea has created an outdoor living space to enjoy "la dolce vita".

Andrea's warmth and hospitality made us feel welcome and home and very special. We will be back soon.

Simply Delightful Villa

  • 5 of 5

If living in a beautiful villa in a small hill town in Italy is your dream, Buonanotte Barbanera is where you must visit. Andrea Falkner, the villa owner, is dedicated to making sure her guests are comfortable and happy in her lovely home. In the past three years, we have had the privilege of spending a total of six weeks in the villa. Each year Andrea’s warmth and her desire to provide the best home-away experience has grown exponentially. The villa is beautifully decorated, lovingly maintained, comfortable, and inviting; in all, a wonderful Italian experience. Again, this year, I left part of my heart in Buonanotte Barbanera and one day soon, I hope to return to retrieve it. Grazie Mille, Andrea.

A property not to be missed!

  • 5 of 5

Three weeks of luxury living at Buonanotte Barbanera in Spello left us feeling like we had had the most wonderful love affair with Umbria. We were fortunate to be able to share this experience with two of our 30 year old children who found the entire stay equally amazing. Armed with our "Walking in Umbria" guide book we experienced day after day of memorable treks across fabulous landscapes and through marvellous hilltop villages. To be able to return each evening to this superb property was an absolute gift. We cannot recommend a stay at Buonanotte Barbanera more highly. Thank you Andrea - we will be back!

A little paradise in beautiful Spello

  • 5 of 5

Another fantastic stay in another of Andrea's beautiful houses. It was the perfect setting to celebrate my Mum's 60th birthday, which was made even more special but the little touches of magic from Andrea, thank you for making our trip so memorable! Such a beautiful house, with incredible views set in the heart of of the old town - what more could you ask for!
