Description

The large pool is totally private for you, when the owners and their family are not in residence, which is most of the year. But, family members may drop by, while guests are in residence. However, rest assured that the estate is large, their huge residence is cited totally independently of Il Gelsi and the pool is large enough to accommodate everyone without compromising privacy.

There are 2 bathrooms and a Cloakroom/WC.

5 miles from the historic centre of Spoleto. In the charming hill-top village of Bazzano Superiore, below the snow-line, on the edge of the world, a tapestry of vineyards, olive groves, poppy and sunflower fields, hazy swathes of blue cornflowers, suffused into a vast plain of coloured strips and squares of green, blue and purple. And, in the reflection of your eye, I see the mountains beyond and I see myself in Assisi, Gubbio and Spello, a swathe of famous cities, all within a spectacular 1 hour drive.

Behind you, stands the stately Manor House, a holiday home, used mainly from July 25 until the end of August, by the owners, a global strategist, and, his wife, an astrophysicist, specialising in the surface of Mars. Crossing the courtyard from the Manor House to the old coach house, the luxuriously converted Il Gelsi, a spacious, detached cottage, overlooking the vast gardens, the pool and the spiritual visions below.

With Wi Fi, Il Gelsi has 3 bedrooms : 1 twin bedroom (beds can be joined), 1 double bedroom (with walk in closet), 1 single bedroom with small double bed and ensuite shower room, 1 bathroom with full sized tub, 1 large sitting/dining room with fire-place, 1 separate fully fitted kitchen with dish-washer + 1 cloakroom (with WC + washing machine + ironing facilities).

Stepping outside Il Gelsi, down 8 steps and you are on the large covered terrace, seats 8, with sensational views of the world unfurling below.

Dazzlingly beautiful gardens, with walkways alongside an ornamental fish pond, red fish darting through the blue, green and yellow rippling images of flowers, trees and sky, and, through private woodland, dappled sunlight, playing on your skin. A small bus stops opposite the grounds of Il Gelsi, next to the church, 5 times/day, 8 am to 8 pm. It trundles around all the hill-top villages on its way to Bazzano. From here, it takes just 20 mins or so to arrive in central Spoleto.

2 miles away, down a swirling, empty country road, is a fabulous restaurant, set in sumptious grounds, where, in the summer, you will find upwards of 300 diners eating everything from pizza to truffles to pasta and steak, washed down by great local wines. And, always at modest rates. Because this is a local restaurant. No matter that the occasional VIP drops by. Everyone is very discreet.

Please note that Il Gelsi can be booked with The Priest House, 3 mins walk away, directly across the lane. The Priest House is a luxury detached cottage/sleeps 4, set in large private grounds. It has Wi Fi, 2 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with hydro-massage shower + a large sitting/dining room with a dish-washer. Please ask for further details.
