Located in the ex bell tower of a XIII century nunnery, completely and recently remodeled, the 2 bedroom apartment offers luxurious accommodations in the centre of the 2500 year old Umbrian village of Spello, that shows many evidences of its glorious past (roman and medieval archs, mosaics, churches and walls).
The whole apartment is very luminous and suggestive, but especially particular is its terrace located on the top of the bell tower, with a fantastic view on the countryside and, in the distance, the cities of Spoleto, Montefalco and Trevi.
There are 2 bedrooms, both of them with a master king size bed with cotton sheets. There is a fireplace, a newly remodeled kitchen and a modern bathroom with shower.
The apartment opens up to a private courtyard full of flowers in the middle of the nunnery (which is not inhabited except by the landlord's family.)
The quiet village of Spello offers relaxing walks through the nature and excellent restaurants.
There is a medieval walking/ bicycling trail to Assisi and a beautiful trail along the roman aqueduct which leads up to a tiny town in the mountains called Collepino.
During springtime Spello's visitors can pick up wild asparagus, herbs and mushrooms to fix delicious regional dishes or meet the inhabitants while collecting the flowers to use for the famous "Infiorata". That is the most important event every year during the weekend of the Corpus Domini, in which the people from Spello are all involved in creating beautiful flower-carpets all along the streets of the town (search key words: infiorate, spello).
For all the other many cultural, religious, gastro-oenologic, fun and free time opportunities and happenings at Spello throughout the year, search key words: spello, comune.
And if all this is not enough for you yet, or if you just look out for a place to relax and once do nothing, you might just stay in and "rent an italian mamma" to cook for you or teach you whatever you especially prefer of the italian kitchen.
The landlord's family will organize all this for you.
