Spoleto Splash, known locally as Acquaiura, is a hill-top village, along the Valnerina, 7 kms to central Spoleto, a small walled, pedestrian city, buzzing with shops, bars and restaurants in a context of immense historic significance.
Bought by a wealthy Roman, the private village of Spoleto Splash, set in magnificent and extensive private grounds, is 7 kms from central Spoleto, a fairy tale, pedestrian city that predates Rome, a myriad of arched and cobbled lanes, teaming with shops, bars and restaurants.
Spoleto Splash consists of 5 luxury cottages + a Verandah, restored to the highest standard and equipped with everything you can imagine that befits a mediaeval setting.
5 luxury cottages, all with WiFi, at discreet distances from each other, in the private village of Spoleto Splash. Known locally as Acquaiura, the village consists of acres of private land with sensational views all around.
Plus, you have a large Verandah with bed-sitting facilities, bathroom, kitchen + large communal area, both inside and outside, with pizza oven + BBQ, where everyone can congregate, socialize and eat together.
This sensationally beautiful private village is 750 meters above sea level. Surrounded by mountains and woods, it is 120 km from Rome, 200 km from Florence, 50 km from Perugia and 7 km from Spoleto, a medieval, walled, pedestrian town with many works of art, cultural activities and teaming with shops, bars and restaurants.
A groundsman and his small family live on site in order to maintain this vast and unique property. They have looked after this property for at least 15 years and so are extremely experienced in hospitality. Nothing is too much trouble for them. They are on hand should you need anything. They will get takeaways for you from the huge local restaurant (set in splendiferous gardens, 0.5 kms down a steep hill - walking distance, but only for the fit amongst you !). Otherwise, they remain unobtrusive at all times.
The owner, the President of the largest winery exporter in Italy, is a truly lovely person. He has his own cottage in the village but he doesn't live there. When he is not travelling, he lives in Rome, where he owns a bijoux, luxury hotel in the centre of Rome. Hospitality for him is his middle name. He is committed 100% to creating the holiday of a lifetime for you, when you stay at Spoleto Splash.
Indeed, several years ago, the famous model, Kate Moss, stayed here with her entourage, to celebrate the wedding of her agent. And, they had their festivities at the aforementioned restaurant, 0.5 kms away.
Each of the cottages is at a discreet distance from the other so that privacy can be maintained at all times.
Besides the pool is a pool house with showers and a WC.
In the grounds is a covered games area with a ping pong table etc.
