About the property

Spello

Air conditioned villa with private pool (3 X 5 meters, 130 centimeters depth), sleeping up 6 in 3 bedrooms with private bathrooms, the villa is located on the boarders of Spello, only a 2 minute walk from the main square. Spello is one of the most charming Umbrian towns, with excellent restaurants and Roman/medieval monuments, artistic events and local food festivals throughout the year.

Villa Splendida combines the quiteness, outdoor spaces and scenic views of a country villa, with the proximity to shops, cafes and restaurants. A car is not essential as Spello has a train station. Some of the most important towns and cities of Umbria and central Italy at easy distance: Assisi (Unesco site), Spoleto, Montefalco and the wine area of Umbria, Perugia, Trasimeno lake, orvieto, Todi. Mountains and hills with olive groves are reachable on foot through well marked nature paths of different levels, starting directly from the villa.

Known as the 'green heart of Italy, the region of Umbria is one of the finest holiday destinations, not only in Italy but also in the whole of Europe. Umbria is a land of spectacular pristine, largely rural landscapes, rolling wooded hills, mountains, valleys and of course sublime art and architecture.

Only a 2-hour drive from Rome and just 8 kilometers from Assisi, the birthplace of St. Francis, is the enchanting hillside town of Spello. Quiet and elegant with excellent restaurants and fine wines, the Spello is the ideal base from which to explore and discover this extraordinary part of Italy.

Within easy reach are the famous hill towns of Orvieto, (with its legendary cathedral) Todi, Citta di Castello, Gubbio, Spoleto and the highly praised wine producing region of Montefalco. For those who are adventurous, outdoor activities abound.

Villa Splendida was created by its owner (a trained hotelier who lives nearby) from a part of a 14th century church. Nestled against the town walls of your home in Spello, the Villa Splendida is located between the ancient gates of Porta di Mastro and Porta Prato. Built in fine, pink-tinted stone, up to 1 meter thick in places, the villa is cool in summer and warm in winter.

You owner says "As a frequent traveler I understand the many aspects of quality accommodation and the importance of attention to every detail. I have collected interesting eclectic rugs, textiles and furniture on my travels, which imbue the house with character and what I think is an all-important sense of home "

DESCRIPTION OF THE VILLA, GARDEN AND POOL

The covered patio - your outdoor living room

Entering the garden from the street door (exterior lights switched at the entrance) a panorama of great beauty opens to welcome you to your 'home.' Throughout much of the year it is truly relaxing and cool to be outside under the ancient vaulted arches that form the outdoor seating and dining area. A large table and plenty of comfortable chairs are provided. From the patio there is easy access to the kitchen and living room with a gentle flight of steps down to the garden and pool at a lower level.

The garden and swimming pool

The low retaining wall across the front of the garden offers unobstructed views of the countryside beyond, especially at sunset. The pool is set back to the side of the villa, while lush green lawns, cool underfoot, provide plenty of space for sunbathing or entertaining. Planted with roses, olives and cypress, the garden is a quiet contemplative place, an oasis in the truest sense of the word.

Living and dining

Subtle lighting, ancient arches and stone work provide a palpable sense of history to the spacious open-plan living and dining room. Simply decorated with a large cane sofa, a bright Moroccan rug and with a multi-channel television neatly hidden in an old wall cupboard, the living area is cosseting and very comfortable. The dining table with raw silk covered chairs, seating up to 10 people, is raised just a shallow step above the living area.

Kitchen

A real home-from-home requires an attractive and well-equipped kitchen.

Light and airy the style is reminiscent of Sweden and Provence but this is not a basic rustic holiday kitchen. Everything from aprons and a wide selection of table linens to fine Riedel wine glasses and a mighty La Cornue range cooker are provided.

Master en-suite bedroom

Located on patio level and facing over the garden the large master bedroom with king bed feels like a private apartment. Shutters can be closed at night for those who want to sleep late but there is nothing like waking up to a gentle morning breeze.

An interesting selection of books and magazines are available. With a lovely all-white, marble-lined bathroom as well as a walk-in storage and clothes hanging space the suite is calm and restful.

Bedroom 2 - Ethnic

Double en-suite bedroom

Set above the master bedroom with the same dazzling country views this bedroom has been designed in a less traditional style using textiles and the warm colors of Morocco and India combined with cool, limed oak floors and white walls. From the studio room a few steps lead up to a lobby off which is the en-suite bathroom and plenty of useful storage cupboards. The modern bathroom has a large power shower.

Garden bedroom

Double en suite bedroom

Accessed directly from the garden and not the house this charming bedroom is a romantic secluded retreat. Furnished with a metal bed from a family home it is decorated simply and comfortably, Designers Guild fabrics in reds and greens providing color along with artworks purchased in Marrakesh. Within the room is a fully equipped shower room. Being able to step out of bed and into the garden is

a real treat.

Studio - 4th bedroom + nearby service bathroom

The 'studio' is a large and fascinating mezzanine space reached by a wide stone staircase and lobby off the living room. One wall retains original church figurative painting. With oak floors and vaulted stone walls and ceiling, it was conceived as a place to listen to music or just relax and read. With a full size sofa bed it can be used as a 4th bedroom (however we prefer and recommend to have a maximum of 6 guests in residence, for teh maximum comfort) - there is a bathroom at the foot of the stairs.
