Description

Inside, the cottage is exceptionally stylish, furnished with pieces from around the world which have been collected by the owner on her extensive travels. Her attention to detail and eclectic mix of styles has imbued the property with a character and warmth that is rarely found in a holiday home. Originally a simple stone building on the edge of Spello's town walls, it has been completely re-designed and restored so that the overall feel is now fresh and contemporary.

Guests enter the property via a stylish lobby. A bright Moroccan rug and cushions adds colour. However, the eye is drawn along the stone path and raised flower beds to the spacious garden on your left. Straight ahead a covered outdoor seating area sits adjacent to the open plan kitchen and living area.

As guests enter the property, they will see the pretty, practical but perfectly furnished kitchen and living space. On the right is the kitchen and dining area. To the left there is a comfortable, linen-covered

However, the eye is drawn along the stone path and raised flower beds to the spacious garden on your left. Straight ahead a covered outdoor seating area sits adjacent to the open plan kitchen and living area.

As guests enter the property, they will see the pretty, practical but perfectly furnished kitchen and living space. On the right is the kitchen and dining area. To the left there is a comfortable, linen-covered sofa opposite a fireplace with a modern flat screen television set on a low table. A French-style café table and chairs, linen blinds and curtains and a pair of old Belgian metal shutters (hiding china and cutlery) add character to the open-plan space. The floors throughout are a soft, taupe resin finish and the accent colour is Hermes orange. It is a chic, cheerful and modern space.

An arched doorway leads to 2 bedrooms and a bathroom.

The master bedroom truly is a peaceful and romantic retreat, with breathtaking views over farmlands and the Chiona hills beyond. The king-size bed has a natural linen cover and the curtains are made from fine Indian saris bought in Pondicherry. Wall hung clothes hooks have been copied from a traditional Italian design and there are linen-lined baskets for folded clothes. A pair of vintage, red velvet chairs perfectly pull together the colours of the Moroccan rug and the stripes in the curtains.

Adjacent to this room is the smaller second bedroom. This room is fresh and bright with its red, orange and white colour scheme. The curtains are a mix of sari fabric and white linen. A cosy Tyrol blanket and Etro cushions add texture to this charming room. Clothes hooks and baskets are provided as in the master bedroom.

Both bedrooms share the gleaming white modern bathroom. A large shower, good directional lighting, an oversize hot towel rail and wall mirror combine to make bathing a delight.

Outside, the property has the luxury of a large private garden, enjoying both shaded areas under pergolas or birght sunshine on the green lawns. This is a real rarity in such an ancient town. Rosemary, sage, verbena, thyme and lavender scent the air whilst omegranates ripen in the trees in the Autumn and climbing roses wind their way up a pergola built against ancient stone walls.

An outside annexe houses a washing machine and tumble dryer, ensuring that the property is both practical as well as luxurious!

Location description from manager

The Umbria region

Known as the 'green heart' of Italy, Umbria is a stunning area to visit. It's rolling hills, dotted with vineyards snd olive groves, are a picture of peace and tranquility. Visitors to the area shouldn't miss vibrant Perugia with its 'underground city', the Roman remains in Spello, Orvieto's Duomo or the Basilica of S. Franceso in Assissi.

In fact there are many wonderful towns and cities across Umbria, all of which are worth a visit during your stay. One such town is Gubbio, one of Italy's best preserved Medieval cities. Another Medieval town but on a much smaller scale is Citta di Castello. The town contains an outstanding art collection and trio of fascinating museums.

Todi, Montefalco, Bevagna, Spello, Trevi, Norcia, Narni, Orvieto and Foligno are also all worth a trip.

Bevagna has very much preserved it's medieval appearance but it's clear to see it's Roman roots in the layout of the streets and visitors can catch glimpses of the Roman outer walls.

Montefalco is a town at the heart of wine production in this region, with the cultivation of vines dating back to Roman times. If you fancy learning more about the wines, try and time your visit to coincide with the 'Terre del Sagrantino' held at Easter time. You'll not only be able to sample all the wines at this event but also all the other wonderful products of the area including honey and olive oil. Alternatively, come on the last Sunday in May when you can enjoy 'Cantine Aperte,' a chance to taste the wines directly in the vineyards and cellars where they are produced. Or come during 'Montefalco August,' three weeks of celebrations in the area, or during the 'Festival Calici' in December, a series of events revolving around Italian passiti (raisin wines).

Trevi is a town set on top of a hill surrounded by olive groves and very much views itself as the 'oil capital' of Umbria. The October Sagra festival is worth seeing here where you'll also get the chance to taste another of the area's gastronomic treats - a unique variety of black celery. Also held in Trevi in October is the Palio dei Terzieri. This is a unique event held annually, where over 300 participants dressed in costumes from the 1200s, race 3 wagons through the streets. The winners are the team that reach the keys to the civic Tower first and ring the bell. It's a great opportunity to experience the local culture and understand one of Italy's great traditions.

Spello is a town dating back to ancient times and still retains archways dating back to the Augustan era. Like Trevi, it also has some extremely interesting annual events. The most impressive artistically is surely the Infiorata of Corpus Domini when artists gather in the streets to produce stunning works of art using only flower petals and leaves. Artists start work at the same time on the Saturday and work on through the night to complete their masterpieces with an award then granted for the best creation.

Foligno offers an extensive list of annual events for vistors to enjoy througout the year. The renowned Palio della Quintana at Foligno is a colourful and exciting event, re-enacting a jousting tournament with knights on horseback. Ten horsemen, each representing one of the city's wards, face off in a ring joust. On three successive runs, the horsemen must gallop along and insert their lance into the rings shose diamater shrinks with each run. There are three joust events each year - the Baroque Carnival in February, the June Challenge and the Rematch in September. Foligno also holds, among other events, the 'First Courses of Italy' across September and October each year, where top chefs, food critics and maunfacturers all converge on the town in a celebration of Italy's favourite foodstuff - pasta. In June the town holds a jazz festival, in July there is the 'Canti and Discanti' music festival and across February and March, the Sant' Eraclio carnival.

The region offers visitors a whole host of sights to see, some of the best attractions in Italy and wonderful things to do... Please contact us for more information about what to see and do during your stay.

Spello

It's central location within the town means guests can walk to a number of restaurants and yet it has the feel of being in the heart of rural Umbria.

Spello itself is an enchanting hillisde town. It has a peacefulness and elegance about it that you can't fail to fall in love with, whilst the town's restaurants are famed for their superb cuisine and excellent wines. It also makes an excellent base from which to explore the wider area. Orvieto, Todi, Citta di Castello, Gubbio and Spoleto are all within easy reach along with the highly praised wine producing region of Montefalco. There are numerous activities to enjoy too including horse riding, hiking, cycling, rafting and sailing as well as cross-country skiing in the Winter, making it an ideal holiday destination all year round.
