Apartment in Spoleto, Umbria, Italy - Holiday House In Beautiful And Tranquil Place, Panoramic View
A mellow, beautiful and tranquil place, the waterfall, the jacuzzi, the manicured grounds, the Bbq area and the infinity pool, all ensure that, here, you will lie back and totally relax. A car is advisable. But, if you are the fit type, used to walking up and down hills, and, not committed to stiletto heels, you can stay here without a car. So, 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. From all of the apartments, there are 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 memorized and to submit to an inner calm.

About the Owner
I live in Spoleto with my wife Carolina and our two children since 15 year.
"The garden", a charming apartment with garden in the old town of Spoleto, is managed by a company named "Pincio Spoleto s.r.l.", and i’m the administrator.
For many year I was a company’ manager, then I was a freelancer and I worked in the hospitality sector in Spoleto, until my wife and I we fell in love for this farmhouse and we decided to transform it in a Holiday House.

Beautiful quiet location with a great pool & view
Lovely place to stay - the outdoor areas are stunning, especially the infinity pool looking out across the gorgeous landscape. The outdoor seating area is fantastically well equipped as well as the BBQ area, and nice touches with the waterfall cascading down too. The accommodation is great too - equipped well and with a nice rustic charm. Roberto was fantastic - really friendly and accommodating, and thanks for the bottles of wine too - they were very much appreciated!! Would love to come back in the future and would highly recommend!!
I would highly recommend these apartments! I am already missing the sun, pool and views!
A typical Italian apartment, in lovely grounds with spectacular views both day and night!
Although there are six apartments, it is never busy and is a very relaxing place to stay!
The owner Roberto was very helpful, especially on our arrival, when he came and got us when we were lost! He also provided us with a hamper that was a perfect start to the holiday!
As the apartments are on the top of a hill I would highly recommend a car! The town of Spoleto is only a very short distance, with supermarkets, shops, very nice Ice-cream shops, restaurants....and well worth a visit. the old town is beautiful.
The apartments are also a good base for visiting Umbria, worth a visit to Spello, Assisi, Perugia, Marmote Falls to name a few... It also only a train ride away from Rome so very easy to visit the city!
I would certainly recommend staying here, it made a perfect base for a fantastic holiday!

From the Owner
“Spoleto by the pool is a unique place of its kind: it situated in a hill in front of the Spoleto town. When you arrive in the house and you turn your head to the right and left, you can see a marvellous panorama, Spoleto, with his mediaeval church and bells, ancient buildings, and behind these, the mountains. When I stay in the house’s garden I think that I’m lucky and I’d like to all the people to feel like me.”

Rome with 2 airports, Fiumicino and Ciampino: 1 hour and 30 min by car.
Spoleto is also well connected with trains, it's situated on the main Roma - Ancona line: trains every 1 hour for Rome (1 hour and 45 min).
Spoleto is 20 km (12 mi) of Trevi, 29 km (18 mi) of Terni, 63 km (39 mi) of Perugia; 212 km (132 mi) of Florence; and 126 km (78 mi) of Rome.
Spoleto is at the centre of a crossroads of natural and artistic beauty.
The artistic beauty in Spoleto: the Roman theatre, largely rebuilt; the Palazzo Comunale (13th century); Ponte delle Torri, a striking 13th-century aqueduct, possibly on Roman foundations; the majestic Rocca Albornoziana fortress, built in 1359–1370 by the architect Matteo Gattapone of Gubbio for Cardinal Albornoz; the Duomo (Cathedral) of S. Maria Assunta (13C); the basilica of San Salvatore (4th-5th century) incorporates the cella of a Roman temple and is one of the most important examples of Early Christian architecture, in 2011, it became a UNESCO World Heritage Site as part of a group of seven inscribed as Longobards in Italy.
The Festival dei Due Mondi (Festival of the Two Worlds) was founded in 1958. Because Spoleto was a small town, where real estate and other goods and services were at the time relatively inexpensive, and also because there are two indoor theatres, a Roman theatre and many other spaces, it was chosen by Gian-Carlo Menotti as the venue for an arts festival. It is also fairly close to Rome, with good rail connections. It is an important cultural event, held annually in late June-early July. The festival has developed into one of the most important cultural manifestations in Italy, with a three-week schedule of music, theatre and dance performances. The “Teatro Lirico Sperimentale di Spoleto” was founded in 1947. Prestigious directors have worked at the “Sperimentale” during its Opera Seasons: Luca Ronconi, Ugo Gregoretti, Gigi Proietti, Giorgio Pressburger, just to mention a few.

“The property is just 7 minutes walk from the city centre and from railway station, where you can leave and to go where you want in Italy: you are in the centre of Umbria and of Italy. Or you can decide to stay one week in Spoleto by the pool and you can swim, sunbathing, to do a whirlpool in the Jacuzzi, to walk in the beautiful garden, read a book in the silence of the universe… and when the evening arrive you can cook a dinner in the BBQ Area and to eat outdoor. You can stay outside in the night and when you go to sleep you will do only good dreams. That romantic place!”
