Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This beautiful 2bedroom- accomodation is located in the upper part of the historical centre of Spello in the second Nunnery dedicated in times to Saint Claire. Offering all comforts, services and a breathtaking outside space, it is perfect for who is searching for a reenergizing romantic base from which to explore the umbrian valley.

The space
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 light and suggestive, but especially particular is its terrace located on the top of the bell tower, with a breathtaking 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 and wardrobe, The second bedroom features a working desk for who needs to be busy or keep contacts while abroad. The livingroom offers a romantic fireplace and comfy sofa with flat satellite TV rather than a newly remodeled and well equipped kitchen and dining area. Our guests have dishwasher, stoves and oven such as a fridge, toaster and electric kettle on their disposal. The modern bathroom comes with a shower cabin, hairdryer and essentials made by a local producer.
All the windows have flyscreens and WIFI is perfectly functioning in the whole structure.
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). Tables and lounges are inviting to relax and enjoy a lazy day or to think back of what our guests have explored in the umbrian valley.
Public free parking is available at a distance of 150m.
A general cleaning and change of bedlinen and towels are offered weekly.

Guest access
Our guests have access to the courtyard and all the relaxing areas they find outside. The washing mashine is in common and located in the courtyard in a seperated laundry room. Iron and iron table are offered by the apartment.
The Nunnery offers enough space to host our guests' bikes, and we'll be happy to rent bicycles or e-bikes from a local renter.
Furthermore, the Cantina has a ping pong table set up, which - on request - is on disposal of our guests.

Other things to note
Like to try Umbria's wine or be introduced to the secrets of local kitchen? Want to discover Spello and surroundings in bicycle or participate at the Infiorata Festival? This is a new service we are offering to our guests. Kitchen classes or visits at some of Umbria's most particular wineries, a truffle hunt up on the mountains or bike tours in a group or by yourself - our local assistant will organize everything for you.
If then you want an "italian mamma" to come over to your house and cook for you, this will just make your holidays an unforgettable trip...

Location

Spello, Umbria, Italy

The quiet village of Spello offers excellent restaurants, bars, cafés and craft stores, all in walking distance from the Nunnery.
The town hosts the Infiorata Museum and VMS - the newly open roman villa of mosaics with amazing rests of its past.
For relaxing walks through nature, we suggest the beautiful trail along the roman aqueduct which leads up to a tiny medieval fortress up on Mount Subasio called Collepino. Furthermore, the mountain and hilly landscape surrounding Spello are offering great hiking and biking trails to Assisi.
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-enologic, fun and free time opportunities and happenings at Spello throughout the year, search key words: spello, comune, festa romana, festa della bruschetta e dell'olivo, incontri per le strade, via dei presepi.
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.
Since Spello is in the neighbourhood of Assisi, Trevi, Spoleto, Bevagna and Montefalco, there's certainly always a full programm garanteed for our guests.

The Spello Nunnery Appartment is run by me, Paolo, and my wife Anja. Anja is from Germany but came to Italy for her law-studies, and that's where we met. I am a lawyer in the meantime while Anja is working as a translater and looking after our little sons, Giulio and Pietro. Together we live in the Nunnery which is an old convent from 1200 right in the middle of the historic Centre of Spello where I've lived with my family ever since. While the Nunnery Appartment is set up in the old bell-tower, we are living downstairs. There's indipendent entrances of the homes shared by our private courtyard on the inside of the building. So if our guests want to get for example further informations about Spello, Umbria or also about the italian-lifestyle or just need to get in contact for anything else, it's possible to just meet us outside or knock on the door. With the guests we had until this day, we often exchanged experiences and points of view. We love to get to know things about different cultures and styles of living, also because we're travelling, now that the boys are small, more in our mind than for real. Personally we love to do sports and enjoy everything Spello is offering such as the possibility to go on long walks on the Mount Subasio Spello is next to, or going on Mountain-bike or run, or also participate at the different events throughout the year as there is the Infiorata-Flower Festival, the roman Festival, Incontri per le Strade, the Festa of the new olive-oil and the tour of expositions of Christmas Cribs.
