Exquisitely Pretty, Detached Cottage, 9 kms to Central Spoleto...

Bedrooms 4
Space 4,305 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

4 bedrms, 2 bathrms, 1 sitting rm, 1 kitchen, 1 BBQ area, garden + terrace

The private, shared pool, included in the rate, is at our Villa Marianna, 2 kms from Cerro Cottage. To date, it hardly ever gets busy. Sometimes, it is empty !

A private pool in the grounds is planned to be in place by May, 2018 but this cannot be guaranteed, due to Italian bureaucracy !

However, if you book now, you will only pay the rate advertised now.

As soon as photos of the new pool on site are showing, the rate will be increased by up to 700 euros/per week. But, for all of you who have booked BEFORE photos of the new pool on site are showing, you will not pay a euro more !

Further, while we are really optimistic about the new pool being on site by the beginning of May, this is Italy, where nothing can be guaranteed. Nonetheless, the cancellation policy is such that if you cancel up to a month before your date of arrival, then, your cancellation is without penalty..... all monies back guaranteed.

So, you can check on progress with us and cancel at any time (see the cancellation policy), if you become unsure that the pool will be in place and you do not want to use the pool at our Villa Marianna, which is large and very beautiful.

There is also a beautiful public pool at Le Vaie, 1km away, where it costs 5 euros/day to use the pool or 15 euros, if you wish to lunch by the side of the pool.

Cerro Cottage is LUXURY with 4 double bedrooms, 2 shower rooms (1 with tub), 1 large sitting/dining room with fire-place, 1 fully fitted kitchen with dish-washer, 1 BBQ area in covered terrace and 1 large terrace + magnificent views.

Cerro Cottage is a holiday home, owned by an English couple, Ruth and Mike, who are close friends of ours. They are away for much of the year, and, therefore, this beautiful home is available on the holiday rental market when they are not there.

Part of a fortification for the Duke of Spoleto in the 1600s, it is 9 kms from central Spoleto.

Stepping from the blinding splendour of this quintessentially Umbrian world, into this magnificent stone cottage, you enter a state of tranquillity and elegance. A magnificent sitting room and dining area beckons your senses to take a break and to be calm in the cool interior.

The furnishings are up-market, comfortable and practical, all designed to enable easy living!

Up 5 shallow steps is the fully fitted kitchen with work surfaces, a dish washer and all the usual gizmos.

On the ground floor, directly off the sitting/dining room is a double bedroom.

Directly off the kitchen is a study and a shower room.

From the kitchen, up a sturdy spiral staircase, is a corridor, which opens onto 3 more double bedrooms, one of which contains only a sofa bed, so that it can be used as a 2nd sitting room or a double bedroom. On this floor is a 2nd shower room with a tub. One of the double bedrooms, the “bed-sitting” room and the bathroom are all on the flat. The 2nd double bedroom on this floor is down 5 steps.

All the windows have spell-blinding views.

The cottage is fully equipped as a home rather than as a holiday rental. So, staying in this house, you will want for nothing. Indeed, this is the closest to Paradise that anyone could want for.

In the garden are many tempting fruit trees : cherry, plum, apple, fig and pomegranate – all yours for the taking!

From central Spoleto, it takes about 15 minutes to reach this extremely pretty, detached cottage. About 4 miles along a quiet country road, sensationally beautiful countryside tumbling below, as you gently meander skywards, you reach a plateau on the hill-side. Turn left and follow an easily driveable country track for a further mile, along a mountain ridge that joins the tiny hamlet to the “mainland” and skirts a deep valley of vineyards, poppy fields and olive groves between the 2 points.

In a fairy tale hamlet, consisting of just a few other abodes, Cerro Cottage stands alone, all its windows and its large terrace looking out onto yellow seas of sunflowers, illuminating the hill sides with their candescent shimmer, and blood red oceans of poppies that daub the land in vibrancy and drama. On the other side of the vast chasm, the road from whence you came continues to wend its way to the top of purple tipped mountains that soar above the valleys, stretching towards the blinding, deep blue heavens, while casting sun drenched reflections amidst the rippling grasses and searing the landscape with heat and beauty. Enveloped by sun, colour and mesmeric views, embedded in a golden tapestry, as far as the eye can see, this is all “yours” for the duration of your stay.

Assisi, Gubbio, Todi, Orvieto, Trevi, Montefalco, Bevagna, Spello, Perugia are all just a hop, skip and a jump away. Rome is about 1 hr 15 mins by car or 1hr 20 mins by train from Spoleto train station.
