Overview

About the property

Spoleto Splash, known locally as Acquaiura, is a hill-top village, along the Valnerina, 7 kms to central Spoleto, a small walled, pedestrian city, buzzing with shops, bars and restaurants in a context of immense historic significance.

Bought by a wealthy Roman, the private village of Spoleto Splash, set in magnificent and extensive private grounds, is 7 kms from central Spoleto, a fairy tale, pedestrian city that predates Rome, a myriad of arched and cobbled lanes, teaming with shops, bars and restaurants.

With aircon, dishwasher, Wifi, private terrace, set in large manicured grounds, outstanding mountain scenery wherever you look, a cool lap pool, a games area and a communal verandah (large bed-sitter that can be used for overnight guests or spillover) with bread oven, BBQ, to seat 20 persons inside or out, what more could you want !

The private village, Spoleto Splash, in Aquaiura consists of 5 luxury cottages, restored to the highest standard and equipped with everything you can imagine that befits a mediaeval setting.

Each cottage is at a discreet distance from the other and has its own private garden and/or terrace. This arrangement ensures maximum privacy for all the guests. And, none is more than a 1 minute walk to the large pool.

There is also a Veranda, in the midst of the borgo, consisting of a large sitting/dining room with a double sofa-bed, a fully fitted kitchen with dish-washer and a shower room. There is a vine-covered pergola, a pizza oven and a BBQ. The Veranda can be used as an extension for your friends who may wish to visit you and stay for a night or so. And/or, it is used by the guests to meet each other on neutral territory and to eat together without messing up their own cottage !!

To date, Aquaiura has been a secret place for world famous celebrities, seeking solace and discretion. Now, however, Aquaiura has been launched onto the holiday rental market so that you too can experience living like a celebrity – but, not at celebrity rates. Go on, pamper yourselves!

CASA VICOLO… for 4 – 5 persons

Located in the Borgo, in the heart of the village, but still only 1 minutes walk from the pool and the gardens – very private – in the small square in front of the Church.

On the ground floor there is a kitchen with fireplace and a big living/dining room with fireplace.

On the first floor there are two bedrooms (one double room + 1 bed-sitting room) with two bathrooms.

A very pretty terrace looks onto a beautiful panorama of mountains and wood.

PLEASE NOTE THERE IS NO RESTAURANT HERE - THE NEAREST LARGE RESTAURANT IS 0,5 MILES - KATE MOSS, THE FAMOUS MODEL, HAD A RECEPTION PARTY THERE, WHEN SHE STAYED WITH US. GREAT LOCAL RATES FOR AUTHENTIC UMBRIAN FARE !

However, 2 kms away is the village of Strettura, where you can find a butcher, a baker and a grocery store plus 4 restaurants !

WE OFFER MANY ACTIVITIES FROM TRUFFLE HUNTING THROUGH WINE TASTING AND OLIVE OIL TASTING TO CHEF AT HOME, COOKERY CLASSES AND PICNIC WITH A DONKEY, ALL FOLLOWED BY A LAVISH FEAST WITH UNLIMITED WINE – AT VERY MODEST RATES, AROUND 30 EUROS/HEAD (DEC, 2016).

Acquaiura was built around the year 1000 AD along the Flaminia route, which departs from Rome towards the North of Italy. It was populated by countrymen and the site was a refreshment place for the troops and the messengers of the Pope along the route towards the North of Italy and Rome.

In the centre is a church built in honour of San Michele Arcangelo in 1500 AD.

Aquaiura is probably the 2nd oldest inhabited village in Umbria, after San Mamiliano. Both these villages are off the Flaminia, the main road that leads directly to the heart of the mediaeval city of Spoleto, a tiny city that pre-dates Rome.

Leaving Spoleto and turning right onto the Flaminia, you follow the beautiful, sweeping curves of the Flaminia, mountains and valleys, dipping below the road, as you wind your way upwards towards Aquaiura. After 6.5 kms, you leave the Flaminia and wend your way upwards for a further 5 minutes until you come to a stop at Aquaiura.

Acquaiura is at 750 meters above sea level, and, it is surrounded by mountains and woods. It is 120 km from Rome, 200 km from Florence, 50 km from Perugia and 7 km from Spoleto, a medieval town with many works of art, cultural activities and a vast selection of restaurants.

The Borgo is the ideal location to visit the center of Italy (Umbria, Toscana, Marche and Lazio) and to enjoy a truly natural and exquisitely beautiful environment.

From Spoleto : shuttle service on request.

In the immediate vicinity to the Borgo, there are many artistic and cultural events eg the Spoleto Festival and Umbria Jazz in July. Indeed, there are cultural events all round the year.

All within easy reach, are the well-known hill-top towns such as Todi, Assisi, Fonti del Clitunno, Orvieto, Trevi, Spello and, the close by and historically significant Spoleto; Or, further away, there is the outstandingly beautiful Gran Piano and Casteluccio (1 hr 30 mins), passing Norcia (1 hr) along the way.

About 12 kms away, is the impressive Marmore Falls, the largest waterfalls in Europe !

You can ride horses through the mountains, play Golf or go wine and/or olive oil tasting.

Guides and/or drivers are available, by request. Quotes given in advance.

At the edge of the village, a few minutes walk away from the suites, so as not to disturb, Borgo Acquaiura offers the use of barbecues, ping pong tables, exercise machinery and basketball hoops, in a covered, outdoor area.

Daily Tours with a choice of regional tourist guides or a driver (Spoleto, Todi, Narni, Fonti del Clitunno, Castelluccio, Norcia, Assisi, Marmore Falls). Booking, by request.

BY CAR – take A1 motorway direction Florence, exit Orte, go towards Terni + Spoleto. After the tunnel called “Valico della Somma” 7 kilometers from Spoleto, exit on the 1st turning on the right and follow the sign to Acquaiura.

BY TRAIN – Spoleto is the main station and it is very close to the Borgo (7 km). High speed train (EuroStar) leaves from Rome and it takes 1 hour and ten minutes.
