Description

Large private pool, included in rate, 7 miles away. With WiFi and a very pretty terrace, Terrazza Verde is cute and spacious.

A car is unnecessary because you are just 10 mins easy walk, on the flat, along a tree lined boulevard, lined with cafes, bars, restaurants and shops, to the train station, from where you can get to practically anywhere in Italy. Or, you can catch a bus.

Further, 2 mins walk away, under the famous Torre Del Olio, there is a travellator that consists of a network of moving walkways, escalators and elevators that takes you to every different part of the city.

On your day of arrival and departure, we help you with your luggage to and from the apartment. Indeed, if you are without a car, we give you a lift to and from the station.

Located in the pedestrian, historic centre of Spoleto, buzzing with activity around the many shops, bars and restaurants, you can experience food for the soul as well as every sensory delight.

Located in the pedestrian, historic centre of Spoleto, buzzing with activity around the many shops, bars and restaurants, you can experience food for the soul as well as every sensory delight.

Terrazza Verde consists of 2 double bedrooms with 1 shower room + washing machine, a sitting/dining room that opens onto a very pretty terrace and a separate kitchen.

It is a smart apartment in the famous Rocca Dei Perugini, built by the invading Perugini, who occupied Spoeto for 2 years at the turn of the century, before the Spoletini fought back and regained Spoleto, after a blood-thirsty battle outside the Rocca Dei Perugini.

Walk up Porta Fuga, where Hannibal was apprehended by the Spoletini, thus avoiding the possible downfall of Rome. Or take the outdoor escalator to the top. Here, you find La Rocca, Spoleto's huge and famous castle, now an exhibition centre, and, Il Ponte, Europe's largest aqueduct, which will make you dizzy to look over the side. Walk across this bridge and enter the Sacred Mountains.

In the mountains, a myriad of paths await you, all sign-posted, all following in the footsteps of St Francis, leading you past monasteries, churches and other worshipping spots, hidden hither and thither, behind boulders, built into rocks and amidst tall, craggy trees, the sun striking through their branches at every possibility.

Packed with monasteries, churches, art galleries and ancient monuments, Spoleto is a feast for those who hallow the good life. You can pray, eat, sing, dance, hike, fish, taste the finest wines and olive oils, learn to cook like Mama or like a top Italian chef (what's the difference ?)....or, simply meander through the arched and cobbled lanes, lined by crooked stone walls and faded pink, ochre and sienna washed, higgledy piggledy pallazzos, with ornately curved iron balconies, a deep blue sky punctuating every gap between the silhouetted shapes.....and, marvel at this God given place, a tiny city that predates Rome, where the indigenous inhabitants regard themselves as the ONLY true Italians, apart from the Venetians and the Florentines.

Come here and you see Italy in the raw. Recently, many Italians have settled here, Spoleto having always been a favourite for the Italian, inspite of the snobbish nature of their kin folk. And, thanks to them, Spoleto offers the finest cuisine from every corner of Italy, the locals are the friendliest you will find and the diversity of the Italian populus makes Spoleto a really fun place to stay because all these Italians have brought with them their own local customs and practices from their home towns, whether it be flag waving, ceramics or shoe making, here, you have it all. But, for me, best of all is the wine, the truffles, the olive oil, the gelato, the cappucino, the pizza.......

So much of it is my favourite, it is impossible to single out one thing......maybe the cloudless blue skies, the sun and the purply pink tipped mountains.

You must visit and decide for yourselves.

The gym referred to is State of the Art. It is called Unique, it is 1.5 miles and it accepts day memberships. Here there are weight rooms, many classes, a large pool and a huge sauna.

Location description from owner

The Umbria region

Unlike Tuscany, where Chianti has been dubbed, Chianti-shire, referring to the invasion of the Brits from the British home counties over the past 50 years, Umbria has remained unpolluted by tourism. Indeed, you can drive along stunningly beautiful country roads, over mountains and through valleys, and never see another car ! Naturally, this keeps the prices down since the many restaurants, trattorias and pizzerias, all competing with each other, depend on local trade the year round for their income.

A trip to Umbria is a trip back in time. Mediaeval mists stretch across endless landscapes. A land of traditions and rich culture. A magnificently, unspoiled area of rolling, forested hills, sprawling grassy meadows covered with flowers, olive groves, vineyards, lakes and valleys. Dotted with picturesque medieval villages, perched on hill-tops, Umbria is famous for its cuisine.truffle, boar, porcini mushrooms, fine wines from Orvieto and Montefalco and the friendliness and hospitality of its people. Still, the most important topic of conversation is food. Everything stops for lunch, the most important meal of the day for young and old !

The hot-spots of Umbria eg Perugia, Orvieto, Montefalco, Todi, Spello, Norcia, Casteluccio, Trevi, Gubbio, with Spoleto at their cultural centre, have festivals throughout the year, celebrating truffle, chocolate, various pastas, asparagus and boar all in a context of song, dance, choral music and orchestra. The Spoleto festival is also known as the Festival of Two Worlds.

But, the Spoleto area is the most interesting place to stay in Umbria, not only because of its central location. It combines ancient and modern, simplicity and sophistication, town and country, and, the richest of cultural heritages, bound up in the handful of aristocratic families, who have owned and controlled Spoleto, since the turn of the century, with love and respect for their land. Now, the young ones are in power and are keen to open up Spoleto to the rest of the world, to show off their traditional farming methods, their cuisine and just the sheer beauty of the place.

To stay anywhere else, you risk missing the ultimate experience, the complex mix of food, fashion, religion, architecture, bars, churches, museums, art galleries, arched, cobbled streets, older than Romeall to be found in and around this most famous city of all, Spoleto, the city of the rich and famous and, up until now, Italy's best kept secret !

Central Spoleto

Sport: Tennis in town, Horse riding, Fishing
Great for Walking holidays, City breaks, Nightlife, Cycling holidays

Spoleto is close to Assisi, Foligno, Trevi, Bevagna, Perugia, Todi, Orvieto, San Gemini, and Gubbio. It is about 1.5 hours to Lake Bolsena, Lake Trasimeno, Rome, 5 hours to Venice, 4 hours to Naples and 2.5 hours to Pisa, Sienna and Florence.

A favourite for Italians, the tiny city of Spoleto looks like a fairy tale book, come alive. Just 0.7 miles from Spoleto By The Pool, you can enter the walls of this tiny, exquisite city, meander in its cobbled, arched streets and feel the spirit of Spoleto's fascinating past immersed in every stone and cobble. A place where fantasy meets reality and anything could happen !

Lounge in bars, gelaterie and restaurants or, don your walking kit and set off into the hills, treading in the foot-prints of millions of pilgrims who have trod the trails of St Francis, since the 12C. In 15 minutes, from anywhere in Spoleto, you can be in the mountains, immersed in spectacular scenery. Bright green valleys, hills covered with olive groves, thick woodland, monasteries, castles and tiny villages dotted here and there magical !

There is a flash tennis club in the centre. And, there is pony trekking in the nearby hills. Other activities include swimming, fishing, cycling, cooking courses, wine-tasting, truffle-trails as well as day trips to Florence and Rome.
