Amazing Spoleto Centre Apt Car Unnecessary Italy

Prices from €490 per Week
Spoleto centre, just over an hour to Rome and 30 mins to Assisi, fabulous open plan, self-catering apartment with 1 double bedroom (including large double bed), 1 twin bedroom, 1 sitting/dining room, 1 shower room, air conditioning, internet/WiFi access and huge sunny terrace. Included in the rental rate is unlimited use of our large private pool at Villa Marianna, 7 miles away. Albeit quite a distance, Villa Marianna is well worth a visit, if only for the restaurant/bar, as well as the pool, where you can dine on truffles, steaks, porcini mushrooms drizzled with our own organic olive oil (officially stamped as such) as well as sample fine local wines, all at great rates. If you do not have a car, then, you may be able to hitch a lift from my husband, Laurie, who goes there regularly, and hitch a lift back from someone already there. Or, we can arrange private transport for you at a small cost. Or, Leonardo, the chef, might pick you up, providing you are booked in for lunch or dinner. Up until now, it had always been too expensive to stay in Spoleto and, holiday-makers were forced to find apartments outside of Spoleto and drive in. However, we have changed all that and, in effect, we have "unlocked" central Spoleto, having launched several apartments in central Spoleto at rates that are competitive with our "out of town" apartments, making Spoleto affordable for you, at last ! Terrazza Splendida (130 sq mts) has a huge, oblong-shaped sitting-dining room with a very smart fitted kitchen at the end. At the front end of this huge room are 1-way glass large windows and 1-way glass doors that open up on to an equally huge terrace. It has 2 double bedrooms, both with French windows, (1 a twin but the twins can be joined) and 1 large shower room with a washing machine. This is THE most impressive apartment we have in terms of “wow” factor, simply because of its space and the terrace. The views from its terrace are of the old buildings that surround it (but, they are not close), roof-tops, a church, hills and the mountains beyond. The furniture in Terrazza Splendida consists of high quality fixtures/fittings, bleached blonde, wooden bedroom furniture, fabulous “Italiana” lighting throughout, a huge wrap round L-shaped, squashy sofa with poof/foot rest, a sofa, beautiful wooden dining furniture for 6 with padded chairs and a large flat screen High Definition SKY TV on the wall, which has documentary/film and news channels in English as well as a host of other programmes eg National Geographic, Animal Planet etc. Terrazza Splendida is in the prestigious Rocca Dei Perugini, a very beautiful palazzo, which houses some of the most important people of these parts.......judges, architects, a chief of police….. And, this famous palazzo is of immense historical significance for Spoleto because, just after the turn of the century, the Perugini conquered Spoleto and built the now-named Rocca dei Perugini as a strong-hold to guard their position and reign over the Spoletini. These were bloody times, indeed, for both the Spoletini and the Perugini because the Spoletini fought back by occupying the Torre Del’Olio just a few metres up the hill, a lane called Porta Fuga, and, there, they watched for the Perugini as they passed below, immediately dousing and killing them with burning oil. Just 2 years, and, many deaths by burning oil later, the Spoletini regained power in Spoleto and, ever since, Spoleto and Perugia have had an uneasy relationship ! All the apartments in the Rocca dei Perugini, a listed building, are serviced by a lift as well as a staircase. And, we have a private car space right next to the lift, in a private car-park that you can hire for 50 euros/week – the rate we pay the owner of the car-park. Having said that, it is quite easy to park in the nearby lanes, just a few minutes walk away. The Rocca dei Pergini is in “il Borgo” ie the village, in the very centre of things so that you only have to step out of the Roman Corridor entrance to the palazzo to find restaurants, bars and shops, all waiting to entice you in and sample their goodies. And, the local rates are very reasonable indeed, especially if you stick to the places we recommend on our information sheets that we leave in each of the apartments for all our guest. Please see more photos of Rocca Dei Perugini and its immediate locality : Of particular interest to our guests with children is the fact that, apart from our free pool at Villa Marianna, there are several pools around, all within easy reach. And, for those people without a car, the nearest pool is very large with picnic areas and a bar; and, there is a bus that takes you directly to this pool, which takes about 10 minutes. It stops at various points throughout Spoleto so that wherever you are staying, there will be a bus-stop conveniently placed for you. We are extremely excited about all our apartments and we think that once guests have experienced staying in any of our apartments, particularly those in Rocca dei Perugini, not to mention Penthouse On The Park or Il Parco (all excellent value and in fantastic locations) then, they will never want to go anywhere else on holiday, ever again !!!!
