Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Spoleto - 3 Central Spoleto Apts

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.SEE MY PERSONAL WEBSITE FOR MANY, MANY MORE PHOTOS OF ALL THESE PROPERTIES : www.umbriaholidayrentals.com

Terrazza Bella and Bella Due are next door to each other and can be rented together at a discounted rate, to sleep up to 8 persons - please enquire for a quote.

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, BOTH 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.

Terrazza Carinissima is opposite, in another ancient palazzo.

A quiet apartment on 2 levels, Terrazza Carinissima has 2 double bedrooms, one, the Master, is ensuite, up a short flight of steps, with a balcony for 2 persons, the other with twin beds (can be joined), on the ground floor, next to the 2nd bathroom.

With an arched, covered terrace that seats 4, overlooking the mediaeval, pedestrian Porta Fuga, and a balcony, where you can sunbathe, overlooking roof tops and across to the Rocca and the mountains, Terrazza Fontana is a jewel of an apartment. Beautiful interior and very cute. With WiFi and air con, this apartment is perfect for a romantic couple with up to 2 children or for 2 couples. Privacy is gained via the bedrooms being on different levels, each with their own bathroom.

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.

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 !

Like home away from home, only you're in ITALY!

  • 5 of 5

I visited many towns in Italy while I stayed in Spoleto with Norma and Lauri, but Spoleto was always my favorite! Norma and Lauri bent over backwards to accommodate me during my 6 week stay, even purchasing an American drip coffee pot and buying a Chromecast adapter for the TV so that I would be able to get Netflix and YouTube while I was there to watch movies at night.

I loved the beautiful flowers that grew outside my flat! It was on the fourth floor with a great view and on the days when I felt kind of tired from walking I could take the elevator. The bus, train, grocery store, and covered traveling sidewalk are all within short walking distance. The main Piazza at the foot of the town was only about a 2 minute walk from where I live, and that's where it all happens in the evening!

Lauri also arranged some outings with several other people who rented from him and Norma, and it was great fun to make contacts! We traveled with some of these friends during the latter part of our trip. The price was quite affordable, and so is living in Italy. I definitely plan to go back again and will stay with Norma and Lauri when I do!

Bella Due - bella vacanze

  • 5 of 5

Located in the historic centre of Spoleto, on the fourth floor, Bella Due is a great apartment. We have stayed there previously and just had to come back. Laurie, pleasant and relaxed as ever, met us at the station as usual and filled us in on the changes in Spoleto over the past few years. Bella Due was as we remembered - comfortable, neat, small and basic kitchen where we could prepare our versions of Italian meals, great bed, and a small balcony where we enjoyed a few lunches in the sun - ideal for us. Returning to Spoleto felt like returning home and Bella Due just added to that feeling.

Great location, very comfortable apartment

  • 5 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 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 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 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!

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
