BORGO AQUAIURA : TORETTA :
from £107 /night help
Tower | 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 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 !
A tower with a private garden, on 2 levels, that in a bygone era formed part of the ancient walls of the borgo.
On the first floor, there is a living/dining room with fireplace and a separate kitchen. A mezzanine floor, above the living room, is equipped with a bed and an armchair. On the ground floor there are two bedrooms with two bathrooms. This floor opens onto a private garden, very close to the pool. From the tower, there is a beautiful panoramic view of mountains and woods.
"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 to 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
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 far 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 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.
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 and trek 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.
