BORGO AQUAIURA : CISTERNA
Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 3
FANTASTIC ! KATE MOSS (THE WORLD FAMOUS MODEL) STAYED HERE !
A two floor cottage with a private terrace. Located near the church, its name comes from the ancient cistern of rainwater on which it was built. On the first floor there is a living/dining room with fireplace and a separate kitchen. On the ground floor there is a twin bedroom with a bathroom.
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 a 1 minute 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 !

The Umbria region
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 Borgo Aquaiura.
Borgo Acquaiura is at 750 meters above sea level, and, it is surrounded by mountains and woods. It is about 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 wide range of typical 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, by request.
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.
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.
