16C VILLA, LARGE POOL, FANTASTIC VIEWS, 7.5 MILES TO SPOLETO CENTRE

Photos and Description of this 7 bedroom holiday villa in Spoleto - Posto Del Sole nr Spoleto

Near to Assisi, Perugia, Orvieto + Todi, a mountain retreat, relaxing + romantic

A beautifully restored 16C stone house, with an exclusive, private pool, a house that has seen centuries of life, it sits amidst the dreamiest of atmospheres, its large windows in every room bearing testament to the natural environment that pervades every sunbeam and shadow in the house.

Posto Del Sole stands in a clearing on a hillock and is sun-lit all the time. Any of the 4 large sitting rooms can be converted into bedrooms, by request.

The pool is for the exclusive use of the guests at Posto Del Sole.

Very easy access to Orvieto, Assisi, Perugia, Trevi, Foligno, Bevagna, Montefalco, Norcia, Castelucia and the Gran Piano. Rome is just over 1 hour by train. And, of course, the jewel in Umbria's crown, Spoleto, is just 7.5 miles away.

Many tracks criss-cross each other over mountains that go on forever. This is a walkers’ paradise!

Even better mountain biking country! You can hire mountain bikes in Spoleto and 'do' the Giro D'Italia bike race route close by.

Details for holiday villa Posto Del Sole-Country House, 7 Bedrooms, Sleeps 14, 4 Bathrooms

A light and spacious 16C stone cottage, fabulously restored by a local famous builder, who has restored much of historic Spoleto, consists of 3 self-contained apartments. However, we only ever rent out this cottage as a whole and do NOT rent out the individual apartments by themselves. We find that groups of friends and/or relatives, seeking a reunion, value the possibility of privacy that this arrangement allows. Each apartment is furnished to the highest specification with comfy seating, a fire-place, large windows, all with views, beamed ceilings throughout and each with a fully equipped, fitted kitchen. In addition to the verandah, there are several places to relax and chill around the villa, under the trees, or, by the side of the pool. And, there are sun-loungers, tables and chairs scattered around the grounds to allow plenty of privacy and, the wide borders around the pool afford lots of space for everyone.
Suitability:
  • pets considered
  • wheelchair accessible
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

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 !

7.5 miles from Spoleto historic centre, close to Assisi, Perugia, Orvieto, Gubbio, Spello, Trevi, Montefalco etc, Posto Del Sole is in the heart of pilgrim territory. The Valico Dei Pellegrini, just 5 min up the lane, is the mid point of the oldest religious trail in Umbria, passing from Assisi to Rieti. The significance of this point was recently honoured by the Bishop of Spoleto, who blessed and marked it with a ceremonial stone. Along this 60 mile trail, you find monasteries, churches and outdoor alters, all used by St Francis in a bygone era. Norcia is 30 miles along a quiet road of outstanding beauty, used by the famous Giro D'Italia bike race. A little further is the famous Casteluccio on the Gran Piano. Everywhere, you find truffles, fine wines and the the best olive oils in the world. The restaurants, the shops and the local people are a joy. You are immersed in the most sensational landscape in the world. Here, you will find Italy at its finest. And, at modest prices.

Other Activities: Wine-tasting, olive oil tasting, truffle trails, antiquing, museums, churches

Notes:
The pool is for the exclusive use of the guests at Posto Del Sole. The private, 1 mile drive-way leading to Posto Del Sole is a dirt track that has been flattened in order it be drivable. We drive along this track often in a Peugeot Estate car, which is about 2 inches off the ground. So, if we can drive it, anyone can !! So long as you don't drive like Michael Schumacker ! There is a restaurant, from June until the end of August, using all our own fresh produce, at our Villa Marianna, 1 mile away, a beautiful drive or walk through the woods.
