Overview

About the property

4 persons. 0.7 miles to central Spoleto and train station. Plus WiFi.

6 beautiful, air-conditioned, 2 bedrooms/1 bathroom apts with pool + Jacuzzi, each apt sleeps 4, car recommended, 10 mins walk to train station.

APT 1 has a covered terrace -seats 4, APT 2 has 1 long balcony – seats 4 + 1 short balcony – seats 2, APT 3 has a large terrace – seats 8, APT 4 has a terrace – seats 4, APT 5 has a patio – seats 4, APT 6 has a patio seats 4.

APTS 1, 2, 3 + 4 are in the 2 storey cottage – APTs 1 + 2 are on the upper floor (APT 1 is accessed at ground level around the corner) and APTs 3 + 4 are on the ground floor. APT 3 has the largest sitting/dining room and is the only apartment with a separate galley kitchen.

APTs 5 + 6 are in the 1 storey cottage besides the pool, separated by a lawn. APT 5 is the closest to the pool. APT 6 is the most private.

All the apartments share the same spectacular views from their front windows, patio, terrace or balcony. However, when you are sitting down on the terrace of APT 3 or 4, you can no longer see the pool but you can see the rest of the views….mountains, pastures etc.

Spoleto By The Pool is locally known as IL PINCIO, named after the hill it stand on.

The rate includes a lift, free of charge, to and from the station, on arrival and departure days, if you are without a car. This offer is subject to Laurie, my husband, being available and the car being OK. To date, we have always been able to provide this service !

Arrival/Departure dates flexible, subject to availability.

Impressive features of Spoleto By The Pool are the infinity pool, the Jacuzzi, the grounds and the spectacular panoramic views from the windows, balcony and terraces of all the apartments.

Standing on a small hill, outside the city walls, Spoleto By The Pool is the nearest and largest pool property to central Spoleto. Add to that, a stunning and convenient location – simply unbeatable !

0.75 miles to the train station, from where you can get to practically anywhere in Italy.

This location is the best ! Spoleto centre and the station within spitting distance and the mountains are all around you. Spoleto By The Pool is a tranquil place with easy access to all the hot-spots….Assisi, Perugia, Trevi, Spello, Norcia, Perugia, Todi, Gubbio and, just over an hour to Rome.

Both these 16C cottages were originally inhabited by farm workers; and, the whole of Il Pincio, the hill that Spoleto By The Pool stands on and is locally known as, was owned by the next door neighbours. Delicate negotiations over several years enabled a local builder to buy and develop the land, whose aim was to sell both cottages to passing millionaires. But, financial challenges resulted in this wonderful development falling into our hands and, instead of being privately owned by yet more rich people, you can enjoy what it is like to live in a sought after area, so close to historic Spoleto.

While all the original features have been preserved eg beams, arches and cubby holes, neither of the cottages has lost its traditional appeal. Simply and practically furnished, both cottages are child-friendly and equipped fully with everything you could need on a holiday.

If you like heights, then APT 2 is the best. If you have babies, then, APTs 5 and 6 open onto a lawn.

This absolutely brilliantly designed group of self catering apartments is not just an aesthetic delight and completely authentic, Spoleto By The Pool is perfectly placed for those who want the best of all possible worlds. With a large pool, a Jacuzzi and expansive gardens, atop a hill, outside the city walls, amidst resplendent grounds, immersed in acres of wondrous countryside, a romantic and glamorous setting, these 6 self catering apts, all with Wifi, are complete with original features…arches, beams, exposed stone and tiny nooks and crannies.

At the end of your lane, just a few minutes walk, there is a bus-stop from where you can hop on a bus to reach the top of Spoleto and the famous Rocca and Il Ponte. Very convenient if you only fancy walking down-hill, through the pretty, cobbled and arched streets of Spoleto, passing the myriad of shops, bars and restaurants along the way, pausing only for a flute of chilled prosecco, a gelato or a cappuccino or all three !

A mellow, beautiful and tranquil place, the waterfall, the jacuzzi, the manicured grounds, the BBQ area and the infinity pool, all ensure that you can lie back and totally relax. One moment you are floating in the pool and the next you are wandering in the fairy-tale city of Spoleto, through arched, cobbled streets, exploring alleyways and byways, admiring frescoes, browsing museums, visiting churches and indulging your senses in the many shops, bars and restaurants, sampling the finest that Italy can offer and, far more cheaply than touristy places such as Venice, Todi or Florence.

Umbria’s most up-market supermarket is just 5 min walk down the lane. At the bar, sipping your proseccho, you can spot famous faces from all over the world, Yet, lounging in the landscaped grounds, you are unaware that the local facilities are so close.

There is no traffic on the lane leading to the apts, except for the cars belonging to the owners of the other 2 villas along this lane. Here is tranquility, a choice of town or country, at the same time.

The glamorous pool (100 sq mts) is the largest and closest pool, either private or public, to the historic centre of Spoleto. With lots of sun-loungers placed around a wide patio area surrounding the pool, guests can sunbathe and relax without undue disturbance from other guests. A wide patio area forms a complete border around the pool and, therefore, it is easy to retain absolute privacy, should you wish to.

The grounds are expansive with nooks and crannies where you can sit in privacy. So you never have to be “friendly” with anyone else staying there if you don’t want to be. If you want solitude, it is easy to “hide away” with a book.

And, from the terraces, the balconies, the front windows of every apartment, indeed, from anywhere in the gardens, are the most stunning panoramic views of the pool, the pretty grounds and the countryside beyond, truly magnificent views across swathes of crop fields, distant dwellings, and, mountains fringing the horizons. Here is a place to just be, to allow yourself to be mesmorised and to submit to an inner calm.

Beautiful pool, great location, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful stay in apartments 5 and 6. These set in beautifully kept gardens with a communal BBQ area, that we made good use of, with a gorgeous view from the lovely clean pool.

Norma and Laurie were great hosts and recommended a few places to eat as well as a wonderful private chef who came to cook for us one night (also highly recommended)

A great relaxing place close to the town

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was everything we'd hoped for - clean, well equipped, a lovely welcome pack, and lots of information. The location was great - up a hill just outside the town - a lovely pool with fantastic views across the valley. Lots of choice of sunny or shady places to admire the view. And at the bottom of the white road, a supermarket, and a short walk into the town. We used Laurie and Norma's recommendations for restaurants and had some truly memorable meals - especially at Osteria de Matto.

If you're going to be energetic and walk into town in the evening, as we did, I strongly advise you to bring a torch for the walk back!

3 weeks in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay in apt #6. The property was well maintained and the pool was great! The description of the property is very accurate with all the pictures etc. You know what to expect. The only thing that needs improvement is the shower cabin. It did not quite match the level of everything else.

Spoleto is a nice small town with many good restaurants. The ones Norma and Laurie recommended, were very good.

Car is necessary. We did many lovely daytrips, e.g. visited Lago di Trasimeno area. Very beautiful, would recommend to everyone! If you like shopping, Valdichianna outlet village is worth the visit.

I am sure we will come back some day!

Every facility you could wish for, you will find either in Spoleto or close by.

Spoleto is one the most un-touristy places you will find. Extremely popular with Italians because, not only is it beauitful, but, the Spoletini have remained faithful to their traditions. Here you will find live theatre, operas, concerts, ballets and plays, all year round. But, be prepared to hear only Italian spoken. Unlike, tourist traps, the indigenous Italian has never bothered to learn English. Nonetheless, foreigners are welcomed. Sign language still prevails. And, the language of food, wine and clothes is universal. Further, in Spoleto, as well as the surrounding villages and hill-top towns, sagras take place throughout the year, celebrating the harvesting of truffle, asparagus, olives, grapes, maize, tomatoes……. Halloween and various saints’ days. Big spreads are provided, free of charge (or almost), as a kind of offering to the gods, a thanksgiving of good fortune, except that you will be the recipients and not the gods ! Indeed, any excuse will do for a celebration !

Spoleto is the Italians’ favourite place in Umbria – some say in Italy. Now, Italy’s best kept secret has been revealed. And, Spoleto is enjoying its new found fame. The locals are so friendly. Once here, you are bound in a kinship of love and worship of all that is most precious to the Italian….. sculpture, architecture, works of Art and, above all, food ! Not to mention wine, shopping and the most famous of all activities – the passeggiata ! The bus, at the end of the lane, goes to the top of Spoleto, the famous Rocca and Il Ponte. Very convenient if you fancy walking back home, down-hill, through the pretty, cobbled and arched streets of Spoleto, passing the myriad of shops, bars and restaurants along the way.

0.75 miles to the train station, from where you can get to practically anywhere in Italy.

This location is the best ! Spoleto centre and the station within spitting distance and the mountains are all around you. Spoleto By The Pool is a tranquil place with easy access to all the hot-spots….Assisi, Perugia, Trevi, Spello, Norcia, Perugia, Todi, Gubbio and, just over an hour to Rome.
