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.
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.
Casa Spello was 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 Cleopatra apartment sleeps up to 4, two in double bed and two in couch. This unit is as intriguing as its name; it is a “monolocale” - one large open space which comprises a bedroom and living room space – a small kitchenette complete with most amenities – a small dining room area. The ceiling in the green tiled bathroom is carved into the rock. A second apartment doorway gives direct access to the garden.
For larger parties, the Mark Anthony (1 BR, sleeps 4) and Cleopatra (large studio, sleeps 3) apartments can be opened to each other. This creates a contiguous space of approximately 1,300 square feet.
