There is a large pool (120 sq metres), 7 miles away, at our Villa Marianna, that is available for your use, free of charge. Here, there is also our 1st class, private restaurant, where truffles, steaks, pastas and pizzas, local wines are all offered at prices less than you pay even in the cheaper country restaurants ! In the Spoleto area, however, if you are a foody, you are spoilt for choice.
Terrazza Tetto is a spacious, contemporary apartment. Light and airy, with 2 bathrooms/WCs, it has French windows that lead directly from the sitting/dining room onto a terrace that overlooks a patchwork of roof-tops, church spires of mediaeval Spoleto, silhouetted against the hills, olive groves, vineyards and mountains beyond.
Located in the best part of Spoleto village, the pedestrian centre, amidst shops, bars and restaurants, this quiet apartment is in the famous palazzo of Rocca Dei Perugini, constructed at the turn of the century, when Spoleto was occupied by the Perugini for 2 years !! Fortuntely, the Spoletini fought back, dousing their enemy with burning oil, tipped from the top of the equally famous Torre Del Olio, a few metres up the lane, terminating with a fierce battle that took place in front of the Rocca Dei Perugini. This is how the Spoletini regained Spoleto and why since that time, there remains an unease between the Spoletini and the Perugini, the former believing Spoleto should be the capital of Umbria, NOT Perugia !
So, enjoy a stay in a comfortable apartment, immersed in history, step into the street for your gelato, cappuccino, truffles, fine wines, pastas, clothes to die for, walk for 15 minutes to the top of Spoleto to Il Ponte, possibly the largest Roman aquaduct in the world……and, so very beautiful, cross the bridge and arrive in the foothills of the Apennines, spell-blinding beauty at every twist and turn. No wonder Prince Charles declared Spoleto to be his favourite city in the world.
Spoleto is pure magic, where fantasy meets reality and, each day will unfold to reveal ever increasing delights. If this is the kind of holiday that attracts you, the friendly Spoletini await you !
