Quiet calm property in delightful town

4 of 5
I loved staying here. It was a quiet calming property with plenty of space and a private garden, a real haven from busy city. Cinzia couldn't do more to help and even provided some basic food which is a lifesaver if you've spent all day travelling. There are a few cats around, which I loved, but one should keep in mind if that's an issue. They stay outdoors and do their own thing. Spello is a great place to unwind, charming medieval town with not many tourists - at least when I went in early July.

A truly wonderful villa with perfect hosts

5 of 5
We have just returned from a 10 day stay at this wonderful villa. The hosts Stefano and Simona are lovely friendly people and make you feel welcome throughout your stay. We were a party of ten over three generations, including grandsons of 5, 3, 3 and 8 weeks. The accommodation worked well for us, with grandparents on the main level with a bedroom and shower room and the two families using the four bedrooms and two shower rooms on the lower level. There is a kitchen on both levels (both well equipped) and although there is a lovely lounge and gym/sauna on the lower level, we really spent almost all our time on the veranda, where we had our meals and just gazed at the wonderful views. They are spectacular. We were fortunate to have hot weather throughout and although the pool is not heated it was not a problem. The pool is very deep at one end, but there is an ideal section for younger children at the other end. There is a perfectly adequate supermarket (A&O) in Pantalla, but for a larger selection there is an EMI superstore at Todi. We visited Todi, Perugia, Assisi, Montefalco, Orveito and the waterfalls at Marmore. All were within an hour away and most enjoyable. Researching parking paid dividends. We certainly ate Italian with pizza, pasta and their lovely ice cream. We all agreed it was a wonderful holiday and staying in such a nice villa made it special.
