EXCEPTIONAL HOME WITH GARDEN POOL AND ROOF TERRACE

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday home in Spoleto - Spoleto beautiful home

Luxurious and professionally decorated estate dominated by art collections

Our house offers a distinctive vacation experience that is much more than just a villa rental. This is the private, family home of an exceptionally engaged, artistic and dedicated owner who lives sometimes here and sometimes elsewhere in Europe. Her taste and style are evident throughout, her commitment to offering a nourishing and ultimately inspiring stay in Umbria has transformed our house into both a home of great luxury but also a retreat in the midst of a cultural landscape of significant dimension. One week here is enough only to have a sip of a fine wine rather than a glass. In a month you might be able to enjoy the better part of a bottle.

Spoleto itself, full of vitality, interest and beauty, is part of what makes our house such an attractive vacation rental option. This is a town with depth in a region all too often overlooked or not considered with seriousness. In Spoleto you find an abundance of talents in all fields, the people excited, dynamic and friendly, the coursing of ideas and creativity sweeping you up in its wake. You cannot help but be inspired by such a place. You eat well everywhere and it seems every restaurant you try has an inventive menu of its own design and spirit, presented with care and taste. Invariably the sign boards give you options between theatre, film and music. The shops have fabrics, antiques and objets d'art that do not seem to be imitations of what you have seen elsewhere. The numerous piazzas are each distinct and delightful, the narrow stone streets wander here and there with each turn revealing an exceptional vista and numerous striking architectural details. The critically acclaimed Spoleto Festival is being reinvented by young and energetic professionals and again fills the piazzas and enlivens the midsummer. You can stroll until 1 am enjoying the sights and sounds of Italy reveling.

Set between the mountains of the natural park preserve of Monteluco and the valley of the Topino river, Spoleto is an exceptionally well preserved Medieval town graduates up a hillside with the oldest section at the top. This is where you find our house on the eastern edge of town. This is a townhouse set in a small piazza. Just above - a five minute walk - is the Rocca Albornoziana and beyond the famous 13th century Ponte dei Torri. This footbridge provides you with immediate access to an excellent trail system. You can go for a walk or a run as long as you like, enjoying panoramic views up and down the valley are panoramic. A group of citizens is at work to create a worldwide center for mountain biking based in Monteluco, just one example of how an insurgency of ideas seems natural to this charming town.

Our house is like no other home in Spoleto for size, position and ambiance. The owner has lavished two years on a refreshment of every room, updating fixtures, recovering furniture, rethinking the intention of each room and harmonizing antiques with a modern aesthetic. In particular, the amenities are significant. Our house offers four large and beautifully furnished double bedrooms, each with ample privacy. Three distinct outdoor spaces offer multiple opportunities for dining, playing and relaxing al fresco. A new cinema adds interest for relaxing evenings at home.

The drive from the Rome airport is two hours, no more. You have the option - courtesy of a local Avis office -- to arrange a car rental for only those days you want to go around touring, and can easily use public transportation the balance of the time. Spoleto itself offers more than enough restaurants, markets and services to make your vacation stay easy. Our staff is delightful and helpful and includes an excellent cook as well as the option for formal table service on request.

I live in San Francisco. I am a mom of 4 kids, love the outdoor and art.

Anne Laury purchased this house in 1969

Staying in our property is a unique lifetime experience exposing you, your family and your friends to fabulous art, food, historical settings and gorgeous landscapes surrounding Spoleto.

Beyond Spoleto, there are numerous day-trips within an hour; Todi, Deruta, Perugia, Assisi and Gubbio. Rome can be reached by train in an hour -- and they run frequently so a day trip to Rome is eminently doable.

AMAZING COMFORTABLE YET ELEGANT

  • 5 out of 5
This is a very special home. It is very large yet very comfortable. I can't even count all the bedrooms, sitting rooms. We had a friend/family reunion and adults and children alike love this home. The comfort and decor make it a world class home and Marina is a gracious host. It is also in the old town of Spoleto which makes it easy not to have a car and to go shopping or have a meal out. We'd go back in a heartbeat.

A MAGICAL VACATION IN SPOLETO!

  • 5 out of 5
Spoleto is a beautiful Umbrian hill town. Like Tuscany without many tourists: beautiful art; Roman (and pre-roman) history, food and great walks. The house is one of a kind; full of books, music and sculpture, but with all of the modern conveniences. Great for a group, as there are so many places to gather together, or be on your own in both the house and Spoleto itself. This was my fourth visit!
