APARTMENT BELLA DUE: 2 BEDROOMS, SLEEPS 3

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Spoleto - Terrazza Bella + Bella Due

Self-catering in central Spoleto, easy access to Rome, Perugia, Assisi, Orvieto

Large, private, pool available to all our guests, 7 miles away, free of charge, at our Villa Marianna.

In the 14C Rocca Dei Perugini, the stronghold for the Perugini when they conquered Spoleto, located in a pedestrian area, Terrazza Bella + Bella Due are stylish, self catering apartments, 1 with a stunning terrace, both with balconies. Terrazza Bella has a large sitting/dining room with a fitted kitchen along one side + a balcony off both bedrooms. Bella Due has a large sitting/dining room with a separate galley kitchen + a balcony off both bedrooms. Both balconies overlook Porta Fuga. You enter the apartments through a Roman stone passage that leads to the stairs/lift up to the apartments. Here, you are treated to all the advantages of contemporary living. Yet, at the same time, the atmosphere in this beautifully restored palazzo is laced with antiquity. It was here that the battle between the Spoletini and the Perugini raged for 2 years until the Spoletini regained their city.

SPOLETO HISTORIC PEDESTRIAN CENTRE: In the midst of shops, bars and the largest selection of fantastic restaurants, all offering a diversity of dishes from local black truffles to pastas and paper thin, bubbly, crispy crust, piping hot pizzas, Spoleto is not a touristy place and, therefore, prices are good, competitive local prices. The local wines eg Trebbiano, Grecchetto, Montefalco, Orvieto... are to die for. You will hardly notice the price of it on your bill. You can choose from amazing shoe, bag and clothes shops, any shape or size, designer label or otherwise. And, there are churches and monuments on street corners, under arches, through tunnelled alleyways, peppered hither and thither, as you meander along the picturesque cobbled lanes, every angle, a work of art. Fatal to take your camera out. You will obsessively do nothing but take photos ! The local bars are filled with friendly locals and the owners will warmly welcome you. The passeggiata is where everyone meets and is joyful, especially over aperitivi.

BUS, TRAIN OR CAR: From Spoleto train station, a 10 mins walk, it is possible to get to practically anywhere in Italy eg 1 hr 20 mins to Rome, 4/5 hours to Venice and Naples, 30 mins to Perugia.... An easy walk along a flat boulevard road, also stuffed with shops and bars ! From the nearest bus stop, a 5 mins walk, you can catch a bus to Norcia, which will take you on a sensationally beautiful drive along the Valnerina, for about 1 hr 45 mins, passing through mountain scenery, climbing higher and higher. Or, by car, you can continue further to the heart-stoppingly, amazing Gran Piano and see the tiny hick town of Castellucio peeking through swirling mists. On a great plane, surrounded by mountains, the world spilling beneath you, your heart will miss a beat. In Castellucio, you can dine on the finest lentils and white truffles. Nearer to home, by car, it is easy to visit Todi, Gubbio, Orvieto, Perugia, Spello and Assisi, all within a 45 mins heavenly drive.

SPOLETO : WALKING, HIKING OR BIKING: You can walk to the top of Spoleto, passing the famous Duomo, and reach Spoleto's finest 2 monuments, the Rocca and Il Ponte. Takes about 15 mins. Then, you can do a circular walk around the Rocca, which is spectacularly beautiful, as you see Spoleto sprawling below you. Or, you can take the escalator from the bottom to the top of Spoleto. Then, pausing at the bar at the top for a prosecco, you can continue across the famous and stunning looking, arched bridge, directly into the mountains, and, either do another circular walk, passing across valleys, mountains and dales, ending up in Piazza Garibaldi, at the bottom of Spoleto, or, continue up through the Sacred Mountains to Monteluco. Or, you can take the bus from the bottom to the top, which takes about 10 minutes. If you are a cyclist, you can hire bikes locally and cycle along the river bank, all the way to Assisi, passing Campello and Trevi along the way.

We were retired ! We 'fell' into our holiday rental business by accident. It started as a hobby after someone pleaded with us to rent them our house in San Mamiliano, while we were away.

We now have 2 major partners and between us, we offer about 40 very diverse villas, apartments and pool properties, both in central Spoleto and close by. Please see them all on my personal website, the address of which you will find at the bottom of the HomeAway page of this property.

However, we still do not regard ourselves as 'proper business people' because we care far more about contributing to making our guests' holidays fantastic than we do about making money.

We hope you stay with us !

Great location, very comfortable apartment

  • 5 out of 5
Laurie made us feel welcome right from the time he picked us up from the station. Wonderful not to have to find our way to the apartment with our bags. The apartment was well located and very comfortable. Close walk to supermarket, restaurants, bars, shops. It had everything we needed. A nice touch to have milk, wine, past and tea there for us (this did not happen anywhere else in Italy during our trip). Thank you Laurie and Norma for your genuine interest in our stay - right from the moment of booking online. We would have liked to have stayed longer and taken more day trips from Spoleto. Amazing food in Spoleto by the way!

Very comfortable, spotless and great location

  • 5 out of 5
Laurie welcomed us right from the station - wonderful to be collected and not have to find your way with bags! The apartment had everything we needed and was very comfortable. We could have stayed longer and done more day trips. Thank you Laurie and Norma for your genuine interest in our visit - right from the moment of booking online to when you dropped us back to the train station. We hope to visit again one day!

Lovely apartment

  • 5 out of 5
We unfortunately only stayed in the lovely Bella Due apartment for 3 days but we could have stayed weeks. It is a beautiful, clean and comfortable apartment in the fabulous walled city of Spoleto. We had a very close car park and Laurie was a wonderful host, doing everything he could to make our short stay a memorable one. We would recommend this apartment to anyone and only wish we could have stayed longer. Hopefully we may get back some day.

A Super Place to Stay in a Lovely Town

  • 5 out of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in the apartment in
> Spoleto. We though Spoleto was lovely - a really interesting place with so much to see. We are both really keen to come back sometime fairly soon and so some walking. The apartment was great - it had everything we needed and was really well maintained, and so well located in the town. We were really amazed how quiet the street at night - great to be right in the middle of things without being on a noisy thoroughfare. But best of all was the excellent customer care from Norma and Laurie!

Bella Due for the 2 1/2 of us

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at the comfortable and incredibly well-located Bella Due for 10 weeks during the summer of 2009. "We" included a 2 1/2 year old. The apartment is easy walking to everything in town (as long as you can walk up and down hills) including sites, parks, markets, and restaurants. Spoleto is a very charming town and despite being there during the busy tourist time, found it to be more relaxed and less crowded than many other places we visited in Italy. Spoleto was the ideal home base for us to launch extended trips by train to the North (Venice, Florence, Cinque Terre, Luca, Siena) and South (Rome, Naples, Amalfi Coast) as well as day-trips to many towns including Perugia, Spello, and Orvieto.

Norma and Laurie, despite being very engaged in a number of activities, were very welcoming, accommodating, and attentive hosts. They consistently went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Our 2-year old quickly became very fond of friendly Laurie and still asks about him by name, having been back from Italy for two months.

We would love the opportunity to return and would be disappointed if we weren't able to stay with Norma and Laurie.

Owner's Response: Bella Due is one of several lovely apartments that we have in central Spoleto, all advertised with Holiday Rentals. It has a balcony off both bedrooms that overlooks the mediaeval, pedestrian streets of Porta Fuga and Corso Garibaldi. And, its huge sitting/dining room, with its large window, opens onto a pretty area, full of flowers, with a patio.

Very convenient for restaurants, bars and shops, Bella Due is just 10 mins stroll to Spoleto station, from where you can get to practically everywhere in Italy. As our reviewer has indicated, Spoleto is a great place to stay if you want a base in the middle of Italy. Then, nowhere is too far to visit eg Perugia, Spello, Orvieto, Assisi, Bevagna, Montefalco, Gubbio, Trevi...... ! All these places, the very best places to visit in Umbria, are close to Spoleto !!! And, Rome is just 1 hr 15 mins by train or car.

Magical Spoleto

  • 5 out of 5
I have stayed in several historical cities/towns in Toscana and Umbria, and would put Spoleto at the top of the list. It is full of hills, lots of walking to see the sights (which are numerable) and this wonderful apartment right in the middle of the action.

It is located on the main walking street into town where the passagiata happens daily. From the balcony you can see the locals walk and talk the evening away. Or you can join in the fun from the front door.

And walk about 20 steps up the hill to a fantastic restaurant with hand crafted food that can rival any four-star meal at home. Add a local wine and you have an evening in food heaven.

For those of us without a car, an easy walk to the train station from here can get you to several local spots for day trips. I love using the train system and find it very relaxing if I don't have to compete with Italian drivers and limited parking.

Our hosts could not have been more welcoming or accommodating. The apartment was spotless and very well appointed for cooking at home (always important).

I would recommend this apartment, and the properties of this landlord any time.

Strolling within the walls of this fairy-tale city, one can see monuments, churches, towers and all kinds of other buildings of historical interest as well as works of Art galore. Spoleto boasts numerous world famous institutions such as The Italian Centre for Studies on the Early Middle Ages, the Festival of Two Worlds and The Experimental Opera Theatre. And, if you walk for a few minutes up to the Cathedral, you’ll see an example of what is arguably the most beautiful piazza in the whole of Italy, featured in one of Brigitte Bardot’s early films and where her character lived and died.

However, it is not essential to be steeped in history to be able to appreciate the spirituality and awesome beauty of Spoleto. The spirit of its fascinating past is immersed in every stone and cobble. Within this mediaeval setting, you can also enjoy the finest wines, the best truffles, the most mouth-watering olive-oils and the best shopping in the world in a myriad of bars, restaurants and shops.

Other Activities: white-water rafting, ten-pin bowling, wine tasting, galleries, churches, olive-oil tasting
