In an ideal geographic context, very quiet, nice and completely renovated, the accommodation is situated in the historical center of the medieval village of Spello where you can visit, walk, monuments and churches of great historical and architectural as well as enjoy of particular views offertidai streets of Spello, masterfully decorated with flowers and plants, especially during the 'Corpus Domini'.
This was our second time staying at this house. We love it. Right at the base of this beautiful town built in the city wall. Nori is so kind and helpful. The house was fully stocked....above and beyond what we expected. Two bedrooms, very comfortable and a great place to stay for touring the area.
Nori - we would like to thank you for our stay at Casa Flora in October
2015. We found the accommodation to be very good. Your welcome was
informative and having Valentina with you to assist with translation was
thoughtful and helpful.
For those who are interested Casa Flora is a large apartment spread over
three levels and part of an apartment complex with other permanent
residences. The apartment is secure with an external locking door and an
apartment dead locking system. The apartment has three main areas, a
comfortable lounge room with television, a kitchen with very thing you
would need (no microwave but that is not a worry) and a bedroom area
which has a main bedroom with a comfortable double bed and a single bed
in a separate room which is accessed through the double bed room. The
bathroom has plenty of room with an excellent shower!
So apart from this general information we found Casa Flora clean and
very well serviced with all the linen required. All bathroom and kitchen
items are provided. The breakfast was plentiful and although we stayed
for 3 nights the provision left by Nori were more than adequate for the
Nori was very helpful when we had trouble with the Internet which is
somewhat restrictive but more then adequate.
We would highly recommend Casa Flora to anyone planning to add the
lovely quiet Spello to their Umbria travel plans!
Thanks Nori we loved our stay with you.
We loved our stay in this charming cottage. It was comfortable, attractive and very well located in the old town of Spello. The owner, Norrie, went out of her way to ensure we had everything we needed for a very relaxed and enjoyable stay. She even met us at the station and arranged to pick us up when our 3 day stay was over. The cottage was immaculately clean and Norrie also provided ample breakfast and snack supplies. There is also a lovely little terrace area to sit in.
We loved Spello - a beautiful medieval village with plenty of charming places to eat and beUtiful old churches and stunning views of the Umbrian countryside.Less than a 10 minute walk away outside the walls in the new town, is a big supermarket. Assisi is 10 minutes by train and while we enjoyed very much our time there, we were so glad we were staying in Spello where there are very few tourists.
Thank you Norrie for a very relaxed and happy time in your lovely cottage. We would certainly recommend it - and Spello - to anyone wanting a retreat from the more hectic pace of the big Italian towns.
We had a wonderful time staying in Nori's apartment in Spello. The location of the apartment is perfect and the town of Spello is lovely. It's a great base to tour the area and see all the towns of Umbria.
The apartment was as advertised, exceptionally clean and comfortable. The amount of food and drink Nori provided would have lasted us two weeks rather than the week we stayed. While the apartment exceeded our expectations the service by Nori was what we remember most.
When we arrived we called Nori to let her know we were in the parking lot but couldn't find the apartment. She had her friend Valentina who spoke excellent English call us back. We were in the wrong parking lot. Valentina drove around until she found us then led us to the correct lot (it was easy to get in and out of and always had space). Valentina then hauled our luggage up to the apartment, our car was too big to get closer. When we asked about a supermarket Valentina and Nori drove us to the market and waited while we shopped. The second night Valintina called us to make sure we had no problems.
Nori gave us recommendations and directions to several restaurants that were very good. When several items were left in the apartment when we left Nori offered to drive halfway to our next destination to return them.
You might find a better apartment but you will not find better service.
This was our second fortnight's stay in Mansion Spello and every bit as relaxing as our first, with everything to the same high standard we had enjoyed on our last visit. An even more comprehensive "welcome pack" of food and drink awaited us on our arrival this time round.
Nori really spares no effort to make you feel very welcome.
We came mainly on a walking holiday and enjoyed a good number of walks straight from the door using, a lot of the time, the excellent Club Alpino Italiano local walking map which was available in the apartment.
