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 This may be if no interest to you but I’ve been awarded the status of SUPERHOST across all 80 of the apts, villas and pool properties I manage (some of which I own) by that well known holiday rental site that is disrupting the world at the moment. So, you can be rest assured you are in good hands!! ACTIVITIES : OUR CHEF LEONARDO : Will Cook for you In your apartment or Villa. Will Prepare a Feast for you in his own home. Will Arrange a Cookery Session for you in his Pizzeria Old Pig. ACTIVITIES FOR ALL AGES : 1. Oil and Wine Tasting with Giorgio Brunozzi. 2. Cheesemaking at The Sheep Farm. 3. Truffle Hunting with Dogs. 4. Visits to Craft Centres and Museums. 5. Yoga at our Villa Tranquility. 6. Boating on Lake Piediluco 7. Late night Ten-Pin Bowling VISITS TO NEIGHBOURING TOWNS WITH CARLO : Places like Assisi, Montefalco, Spello, Norcia and many more. Or even further afield to Florence, Rome, Naples or Venice. FOR THE MORE ACTIVE : 1. Rafting and canoeing. 2. Cycling and Horseriding. 3. Tennis and Paddle Tennis. 4. Woodland Walk with Daniella. FOR THE MORE FIT : 1. Adventure Park in Scheggino. 2. Football Coaching/Training. 3. Boot Camp - Lots of Mud. 4. Pot Holeing and Caving. ANYTHING NOT ON THIS LIST - JUST ASK. More
