A fabulous find, this wonderful 17th Century mountain retreat is so high up in the Umbrian hills above Spello with views along the valley that must extend for 50 miles. The setting is just stunning. The house itself is rustic, charming and simple with a small kitchen but otherwise really generous living space and being built on the side of the hill, the bedrooms are downstairs and therefore cooler in the summer heat. The hot tub absolutely delivers, it’s a fabulous way to spend lazy afternoons just watching the sun pass by the horizon. Perhaps the biggest surprise for us was Spello, an Umbrian town we hadn’t visited before and it’s wonderful, a really stunning Umbrian hilltop town. You are also perfectly placed to visit Assisi which is a really easy 20 minute drive away. And we would also really recommend the hour drive to Mamore falls, literally one of the most extraordinary waterfalls you will see, made all the more extraordinary that it is man made by the Romans by diverting one river down a mountain to meet another river- don’t be put off by the idea that it’s man made, it’s real and it’s incredible! Finally we have to mention that our host Nadia who owns the house is charm and kindness personified, she couldn’t have been more helpful coming every few days to check on the hot tub and maintain the ph levels and always letting us know ahead and never disturbing us. She speaks wonderful English and is very easy to chat to; we would absolutely recommend the property, it was a lovely week.
Spacious house with lovely terrace. House remained cool despite very hot days, and the excellent shutters kept the light out for sleep ins. The kids loved swimming in the pond and exploring the garden. Very helpful owners.
