SPOLETO HISTORIC CENTRE/TERRACE/VIEWS/ROME 70 KMS/CAR UNNECESSARY

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Spoleto - Casa Nobile + Terrazza Verde

Self Catering in pedestrian Spoleto/Views/Easy Access to Perugia, Assisi, Sienna

Private pool available, free of charge, 7 miles away, at our Villa Marianna, with private restaurant + bar.

Casa Nobile and Terrazza Verdi are in the Rocca dei Perugini, in the historic centre of Spoleto, a palazzo with a magnificent location in Spoleto. This beautiful villa, which houses some of the most important people of these parts, judges, architects, a chief of police etc, is of immense historical significance for Spoleto because, at the turn of the century, the Perugini conquered Spoleto and built the Rocca dei Perugini as a strong-hold to guard their position and reign over the Spoletini. Fortunately, the Spoletini successfully fought back.

Both these self catering apartments have terraces with very pretty views of hills, mountains, churches, local dwellings + gardens. With SAT TV/DVD + English lang. channels, high speed WiFi, comfortable lounge furniture, while Terrazza Verde is a spacious and cosy apartment with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, Casa Nobile is an enormous, stunningly impressive apartment with frescoed ceilings, an enormous sitting/dining room, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. In addition to a very pretty terrace, Casa Nobile also has a long balcony, overlooking the mediaeval, pedestrian street below.

SO, do you.......

Want to get away from the traffic, pollution and chaos that exists in the usual big city ? Want to be within minutes of shops, bars and restaurants ? Want to be in the most beautiful place in the world? Want to be back in time, where history beckons you at every twist and turn ? Want to walk in the Sacred Mountains and follow in the footsteps of St Francis ?

Want to pause on the most amazing Roman aqueduct ever constructed in the history of the world, gaze in awe at its sharp shadow cast across the forests, a mile below and say a little prayer for all those who have jumped from here, aiming for eternal bliss? Want to sit on the same seat in the Roman Forum that the Emperor sat on when he sacrificed Christians to the lions ? Want to stare up at the Torre Del Olio, where thousands of Perugini were doused with burning oil from above by the Spoletini, desparate to win back Spoleto ? Want to stand beneath the arch, where the brave Spoletini prevented Hannibal from entering Spoleto and saved Rome from disaster ?

Want to savour truffles, the finest wines, thin crusted pizza, pastas drizzled with double virgin, freshly pressed olive oils ? Want to visit olive oil refineries and vineyards and smell the deep, pungent, sexy aromas of the olives, taste the characterful diversity of the famous wines of this area that will set your imagination on fire? Want to learn to cook the best that Italy has to offer ?

Want to dress like a fashion model ?

Want to sit in a street side café, sipping cappuccino, indulging in gelato and people watch ?

Want to be in the very centre of Italy, from where you have easy access to practically anywhere you want to go in Italy, using Spoleto as your base ? The train station is within easy walking distance from most of our apartments.

Well, you can have all of the above and more when you stay in Spoleto and any of our 15 central Spoleto apartments, including Terrazza Verde and Casa Nobile!

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.

WALKING, HIKING OR BIKING: Walk to the top of Spoleto, passing the famous Duomo, and you 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.

About Norma Williams

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 !

Norma Williams purchased this apartment in 2005

A fantastic holiday apartment

  • 5 out of 5
I highly recommend Terrazza Verde to anyone looking for a comfortable, spacious, light, airy, clean, beautifully decorated apartment with a great terrace. We absolutely love the apartment and Spoleto. Terrazza Verde like a luxury home away from home. It is extremely well located, clean and stocked with everything you need to have a wonderful holiday. Here are a few of the best points:

The Location
Terrazza Verde is located on Corso Garibaldi, one of Spoleto’s main thoroughfares. Within minutes of the apartment is everything you need, including a fantastic selection of cafes, bars, shops and restaurants. Just a minute’s walk away is Piazza Garibaldi, one of Spoleto’s lovely main squares lined with lively bars and shops. Just up the road from the apartment is Spoleto’s beautiful historic centre. In Terrazza Verde you are at the very centre of Spoleto and yet inside the apartment is an oasis of peace and quiet.

The Terrace
The terrace of the apartment is large enough for 6 to 8 people to dine, along with sun loungers and a barbeque, and is lined with plants to provide shade and privacy. The terrace is perfect for long leisurely lunches or evenings watching the sun set over drinks or dinner. We have also stayed in the apartment in Winter when it is warm enough to have an al fresco breakfast or aperitivo in the winter sunshine. Heavenly!

The Owners
Laurie and Norma are not only amazing hosts, but very kind people as well. They really care, and they want to make sure your experience is the best possible one. That is why, from start to finish, they are helpful and professional, and go to great lengths to make sure you feel welcome and have everything you need. They always stock the flat with a generous welcome pack and are more than happy to share useful tips and recommendations.

Overall, the apartment is wonderful. There is plenty of space for four people and you could easily fit more. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need, including excellent appliances and cookware. The lounge is very comfortable with leather sofas, a TV with English channels, and a selection of DVDs, CDs and books.

Spoleto itself is a beautiful town full of friendly people, great restaurants and cafes, stylish shops, delightful squares and fantastic historic sights. We are so happy to have discovered this wonderful place, and to have a great apartment to go back to. We are already looking forward to our next visit!

Staying in Spoleto is like staying in a fairy-tale castle, peppered with piazzas, sprinkled with bars, restaurants and shops amidst a maze of tunnelled, cobbled lanes and alley-ways, all leading skywards to the famous Rocca and the aquaduct and, some of the best views in the world. This whole surreal setting is akin to a stage-set in the making, fringed by mountains, olive groves and vineyards and a mixture of mediaeval monasteries, towns, cities and tiny hill-top villages - all beckoning a visit ! However, for me, Spoleto is the ultimate temptress. Once under her spell, you are lost forever in her beauty. You must use all your will-power to leave this place, even for a short while. It is, quite simply, the most captivating city in Italy, never mind Umbria, Venice being on a par – the difference being that Venice has the water and Spoleto has the mountains. Nonetheless, like Venice, Spoleto has a history to be reckoned with.

Easy access to Assisi, Perugia, Orvieto, Rome, Trevi etc.

Other Activities: wine tasting, olive oil tasting, truffle trails, museums, churches, galleries
