Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
I am a human rights advocate. I live in San Francisco, California. I have been awarded several prizes for my human rights work. The work I do for human rights is pro-bono. My husband and I travel all over the world. I speak English, Italian, Francais , Espanol and I love hosting people from all over the world in my Casa Spello. I have family in Italy and family in the USA. My husband Dan has a property management company based in San Francisco, but he lets me manage Casa Spello. He is also involved in civil rights causes and served as a volunteer in the Peace Corps in India for two years. Of course when I have serious issues with Casa Spello regarding a frozen pipe or anything to do with the building, I consult with him. But, I deal with all the bureaucracy in the Italian government offices. Casa Spello for us is a "labor of love" and a pride of ownership.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Owner chose Spello
My husband Dan and I bought this property because we fell in love with its magnificent views and the fact that it was built in hand carved stones from the nearby Subasio mountains. Spello took us under its spell and in fact this medieval villas has recently been declared by Smarter Travel as one of 11 of the most beautiful secret villages in Italy.
What makes this Apartment unique
The property offers breathtaking sunsets from our windows and sweeping views from our beautiful garden. Sunset watching in our garden enjoying a glass of local wine and an appetizer is a must and this is what our guests love the most. The inside of the units are in hand carved peach color stone which gives the interior a warm glow. This warm soft light creates a very romantic atmosphere.

Magnificent Casa SPELLO!
We loved this property, especially our most gracious and generous hosts Gina & Dan! The apartment is well located, clean, well equipped with full kitchen air conditioning, free wi-fi, amazing views, washing machine and garden clothes line for drying clothes. Patio overlooks the entire valley and is quiet and private-off the beaten path. Gina and Dan showed us their favorite spots including driving us to a special restaurant and sharing our birthday/anniversary dinner! I highly recommend this property! Grazie Grazie!!!!!

Your hosts Dan and Gina
This apartment had awesome views from the windows, good Wifi, and spacious and comfortable rooms. The kitchen was great as it allowed a break from eating out all the time. Spello itself is a very beautiful city. You will definitely enjoy the stay. The only little inconvenience is the parking in that it's far away. But it's a nice walk. Can't complain.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. All medieval villages have their charm because the Historic villages like Spello has very narrow alleyways which do not allow for cars to drive in. In order to preserve the historic structure and architecture of the village, we all have to walk a little to get to our homes.
Yes you are right there is about a 7 to 8 minute walk from the parking, but it is a lovely walk. People enjoy walking and saying hello to the locals and stopping for a cappuccino or a gelato on the way home to Casa Spello. Thank you for choosing Casa Spello as your vacation home in Umbria.
We hope to see you here soon again.
Lovely location in town, comfortable apartment, well equipped kitchen and comfortable living area. Gina and Nadia were very helpful and a pleasure to communicate with and there were lots of wonderful suggestions about exploring the area and restaurants. Spello is a remarkable town, full of life, very clean and well located for day trips!!
Thank you so much for your wonderful review and for recommending our property to other members of your family. We are always here to make our guests experience a special one. Hope to see you soon again and we are honored that you chose casa spello for your home in Umbria.
Relaxing and cozy
Great view of the Umbrian valley and easy access (5 min walk) to restaurants and shopping. The apartment we enjoyed was well equipped and clean, with lots of room for 2 people.
It was a pleasure having you stay at Casa Spello. Thank you so much for you lovely review. All of our four apartments at Casa Spello are as equipped as the Augustus where you stayed . I am a cook and always like a well equipped kitchen when I travel. This allows our guests to enjoy cooking with local ingredients such as truffles, wonderful olive oil and great vegetables and home made pasta.
Hope to see you back at casa Spello and feel free to recommend us to your friends.
sincerely, Gina Waldman, your hostess
Look No Further for a Place To Stay!!
What a Gem!
Perfect location with a Killer View! Beautiful 2 level apartment within the castle walls of Spello. Our apartment was absolutely charming with tons of character and only a few blocks down or up to food, bars, shopping and most importantly....gelato! This town even has a wonderful Enoteca. Our hostess Gina was fabulous. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area and places to go and we were never disappointed. We will never stay anywhere else when we return to Umbria Region!
Thank you for your wonderful review. We are so lucky to have one of the best views in Spello from our property and from our beautiful garden where our guests can enjoy such incredible sunset year round and have meals and a glass of wine al fresco. Yes you are right, we are also located so conveniently close to all the wonderful restaurants that Spello has to offer and it is so easy to visit other nearby villages as the access to the freeway is very convenient from Spello.
We hope to have you come again.
A PERFECT, RELAXING STAY
AS SOON AS I WALKED INTO CASA SPELLO (TIBERIUS APARTMENT), I WAS ENCHANTED. HERE WAS A 700 YEAR OLD BUILDING (FASCINATING!) THAT HAD BEEN METICULOUSLY RESTORED WITH ALL MODERN CONVENIENCES AND COMFORTS. WE LACKED NOTHING! BE SURE TO HAVE AS MANY COFFEES AND LUNCHES ON THE GARDEN TERRACE - IT IS BREATHTAKING . FILLED WITH FLOWERS AND A GORGEOUS VIEW, YOU'LL WANT TO SPEND A LOT OF TIME OUT THERE. AND GINA AND DAN ARE THE PERFECT HOSTS - THEY INTRODUCED US TO SOME LOVELY PLACES, WHERE WE HAD AMAZING MEALS, GAVE LOTS OF GOOD ADVICE ON WHERE TO EAT AND VISIT, ETC.
WE TRAVEL A GOOD BIT, AND THIS IS DEFINITELY ONE OF OUR BEST VACATIONS EVER! THANK YOU, GINA AND DAN.
It was an honor to have you and your husband stay with us at Casa Spello.
I hope that you will come and visit us again. Yes the sunsets in our garden terrace are special and we hope to have you with us to share them in the future.
Now that you have found so many vegetarian wonderful gourmet meals, you no longer have to worry about finding great dishes on the manus in Spello restaurants which are totally vegetarian and vegan. Those wonderful
home made fettuccine with tartufo will be waiting for you!
Best wishes and thank you so much for your lovely review,
Your hostess Gina
