Only a 2 minute walk from the main piazza Villa Splendida was created by its owner from part of a 14th century church. Nestled against the town walls your home in Spello, the villa is situated between the ancient gates of Porta di Mastro and Porta Prato, with large private garden overlooking the valley and a beautiful pool. Private location inside the vibrant town of Spello, walking distance to restaurants, shops, monuments, lots of events during the year, like concerts, art exhibitions and local food festivals. Built of fine, pink-tinted stone, up to 1 meter thick in places, the villa is cool in summer, with no need for air conditioning, and warm in winter.

Nestled against the town walls your home in Spello, the villa is situated between the ancient gates of Porta di Mastro and Porta Prato, with large private garden overlooking the valley and a beautiful pool. Private location inside the vibrant town of Spello, walking distance to restaurants, shops, monuments, lots of events during the year, like concerts, art exhibitions and local food festivals. Built of fine, pink-tinted stone, up to 1 meter thick in places, the villa is cool in summer, with no need for air conditioning, and warm in winter. The owner said “As a frequent traveller myself I understand the many aspects of quality accommodation and the importance of attention to every detail. I have collected interesting eclectic rugs, textiles and furniture on my travels, which imbue the house with character and what I believe is an all-important sense of home.” The garden and swimming pool A low retaining wall across the front of the garden provides unobstructed views of the countryside beyond, especially wonderful at sunset. The pool is set back and to the side of the villa, while lush green lawns, cool underfoot, provide plenty of space for sunbathing or entertaining. Planted with roses, olives and cypress the garden is a quiet contemplative place, an oasis in the truest sense of the word. Living and dining Subtle lighting, ancient arches and stone work provide a palpable sense of history to the spacious open-plan living and dining room. Simply decorated with a large cane sofa, a bright Moroccan rug and with a multi-channel television neatly hidden in an old wall cupboard the living area is cosseting and very comfortable. The dining table with raw silk covered chairs, seating up to 10 people, is raised just a shallow step above the living area. Kitchen A real home-from-home requires an attractive and well- equipped kitchen. Light and airy the style is reminiscent of Sweden and Provence but this is not a basic rustic holiday kitchen. Everything from aprons and a wide selection of table linens to fine Riedel wine- glasses and a mighty La Cornue range cooker are supplied. Master bedroom with en-suite bathroom Situated at patio level and facing over the garden the large master bedroom with kingsize bed feels akin to a private apartment. Shutters can be closed at night for those who want to sleep late but there is nothing like waking up to a gentle morning breeze. An interesting selection of books and magazines are supplied. With a lovely all-white, marble-lined bathroom as well as a walk-in storage and clothes hanging space the suite is calm and restful. Double Bedroom 2 – Ethnic – with en-suite bathroom Set above the master bedroom with the same dazzling country views this bedroom has been designed in a less traditional style using textiles and the warm colours of Morocco and India teamed with cool, limed oak floors and white walls. From the studio room a few steps lead up to a lobby off which is the en-suite bathroom and plenty of useful storage cupboards. The modern bathroom has a large power shower. Garden bedroom, double bedroom with en-suite bathroom Accessed directly from the garden and not the house this charming bedroom is a romantic secluded retreat. Furnished with a metal bed from a family home it is decorated simply and comfortably, Designers Guild fabrics in reds and greens providing colour along with artworks bought in Marrakesh. Within the room is a fully equipped shower-room. Being able to step out of bed and into the garden is a real treat. Studio – 4th possible bedroom, with full size sofa bed and nearby bathroom Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 03383580549More

We stayed at the next door property to Villa Splendida for a week in July. The location of this house is almost it’s everything - I say almost because the house itself and the view are pretty hard to beat. Although in the centre of...More

Thank you Caroline so much for this amazing review. I'm so glad you had a fantastic stay in Spello. I know that Spello is a unique town and that the villa is also unique for having a private garden and pool inside the town walls....More

About the neighbourhood
SPELLO AND UMBRIA Known as the ‘green heart of Italy, the region of Umbria is one of the finest holiday destinations, not only in Italy but also in the whole of Europe. Umbria is a land of spectacular pristine, largely rural landscapes, rolling wooded hills, mountains, valleys and of course sublime art and architecture. Only a 2- hour drive from Rome and just 8 kilometres from Assisi, the birthplace of St. Francis, is the enchanting hillside town of Spello. Quiet and elegant with excellent restaurants famed for typical robust Umbrian cuisine, fine wines and of course historic buildings Spello is the ideal base from which to discover and explore this extraordinary part of Italy.
Getting around
Within easy reach are the famous hill towns of Orvieto, (with its legendary cathedral) Todi, Citta di Castello, Gubbio, Spoleto and the highly praised wine producing region of Montefalco. For those who are adventurous, outdoor activities abound.
