And, amongst the many palaces they owned, they also occupied the whole of this magnificent palazzo, which bears their coat of arms. It is this same family who will host you! During a period of change, when Italy became a republic, the aristocrats were legally banned from using their titles. Possessions were seized and many aristocrats fled the country, slowly to return to pick up what remained of their historic and glorious past. Now, Contessa Gabriela, with her husband, the Conte, resides once more in her beloved Spoleto, the fairy tale city, where she was born and raised. And, she lives on the top floor of this 16C palazzo, her ancestral home, in a tower. The Contessa is a beautiful blonde, who reminds me of the legendary Rapunzel, who, from her tower, would let down her long golden hair to allow suitors to climb into her boudoir. No need for Contessa Gabriela to use her locks for such a purpose. Her tower has steps ! Contrary to the image that an Italian aristocrat may conjure up, this aristocratic family is totally down to earth ! Indeed, the Contessa will teach you to cook and/or will prepare a dinner for you on the ground floor of this Palazzo, in her sumptuous gardens, under a large pergola, at a modest cost. Nowadays, the nobility needs to work for a living ! And, this noble family is far from work shy ! I have even witnessed the Conte up a ladder, changing a bulb in a street light, rather than wait for the Spoleto Comune to arrive. When you arrive here, you will receive a very warm welcome. The Contessa Gabriela is keen to please and will do all in her power to make your stay a memorable one ! Can sleep up to 15 persons when booked simultaneously with Spoleto Contessa Grande : ID 9697996 AUTHENTIC ACTIVITIES 1.A visit to Ciarletti oil mill, including lunch and unlimited wine. This famous Italian olive oil was blessed by the current Pope, in recognition of its status as Italy's No I olive oil. 2.A cookery lesson by a local “celebrity' chef at his restaurant, including lunch and unlimited wine. 3.A meal cooked for you in your home by a local “celebrity' chef, including all the ingredients and unlimited wine. 4.A truffle hunt with a local “celebrity' chef, including a truffle lunch and unlimited wine There is a State of the Art gym 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. Further, there is a tennis club. It is 2 miles away and it also accepts day memberships. And, 5 miles away, in the hills, are fantastic riding stables, where you can practice in the paddock or trek in the mountains under the sun or the stars. Indeed, there are many things to see and do in and around Spoleto that we can arrange for you. This is because our small partnership group, ourselves included, own all the properties that we advertise, about 60 in all, from villas with pools to smart town houses to central city apartments. Subsequently, we can organise olive oil tasting, wine tasting, chef at home, eating in chef's house, truffle hunting, picnics with a donkey, cheese making, caving, canyoning, rafting, canoeing, horse riding.....anything.......all at better rates than you get going through the conventional channels. This is because all the aforementioned activities, except for horse-riding, are offered by our partners to ensure you have the holiday of a lifetime ! The olive oil of one of our partners (Ciarletti) was blessed by the Pope 2 years ago, after it had won the top prize in Italy. He, amongst other of our partners, offers olive oil tasting, accompanied by a lunch, at his farmhouse. All our activities are totally authentic, put on by Italians, whose families go back for centuries and who have been in the truffle, olive oil and wine trade for all of that time. We undercut all competition ! All our activities are in house. More
