Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
FANTASTIC ! KATE MOSS (THE WORLD FAMOUS MODEL) STAYED HERE !
Bought by a wealthy Roman, the tiny village now consists of 5 luxury suites, restored to the highest standard and equipped with everything you can imagine that befits a mediaeval setting.
Each suite 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 2 minutes walk to the large pool.
To date, Borgo Aquaiura has been a secret place for world famous celebrities, seeking solace and discretion. Now, however, Borgo 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 !
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.
Private terrace with lovely panoramic mountain views. Communal washing machine. Ironing facilities available, by request. "Staff" consists of a house-keeper and his wife, who live in the village, tend to the grounds and respond to any maintenance issues that may arise.
The "Meals Provided - Booking Possible" refers to the possibility of asking the house-keeper to get take-aways for you from the nearby restaurant. This possibility will be at his convenience but, mostly, it is possible, especially if you are arriving late and have no shopping. However, there will be some provisions left for you in the apartment tide you over.
The coffee maker is a traditional coffee pot and not a machine. The pool is slightly heated. The fitness room and the games room are the SAME room, in an outdoor area, away from the suites, where you can play physical games or use exercise machinery, without disturbing the peace and tranquility of the village.

The Umbria region
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.
