Stay in a castle but enjoy all the comforts of the best of contemporary Italian design in this tower home. Two double bedrooms plus a single sofa bed (email hidden), 1 1/2 baths, kitchen, outdoor dining terrace, gardens, pool use and spa pass.

The Space

An elegant home with room for 3-5 in a spectacular setting

Enjoy the wonderful art, culture and nature of Umbria from this beautiful home within the ancient stone walls of the castle of Campello Alto. The tower property opens onto the magnificent old walls and a contemporary garden with lots of outdoor space for dining, sunning and experiencing a privileged stay in this unique location. Throughout the house you will find furnishings featuring the best of contemporary Italian design. The ground floor opens up from the sunny terrace to a modern kitchen, dining room and a living room with fireplace. Up the stairs are a double bedroom with sofa bed and private entrance to the back sculpture garden and a centre room with single sofa bed and half bath. At the top of the tower is the master bedroom with queen-sized bed and en-suite bath with shower. Only three other families still live within this jewel amongst Umbrian castles so you can feel as if the castle were your realm, dominating the olive-clad hills of this world-famous village.

Guest Access

All guests have use of our private pool, just a 5-minute (2.5 km) drive uphill in a beautiful wooded location. The pool is shared only with the owner's family. We also provide one entrance pass for two at a nearby spa which has sauna, steam room, heated pool, etc. Other services are available and we can provide additional passes at a reasonable rate for more guests or additional days. We have bicycles available which are stored near the dedicated biking trail in lower Campello--just ask!

Interaction with Guests

We will greet you and take you up to the castle to show you the house and answer any questions. We live nearby and are happy to help out at any point during your stay.

The Neighborhood

The foot of the hill brings you to the park of the Fonti del Clitunno, the placid waters of which have been written about by poets through the ages from Virgil to Byron and up to the present and from there the waters lead to the Unesco heritage site of the Tempietto--a stunning treasure of the Longobards. The village of Campello lies between the castle and the park and offers all services, shops and easy access to the main highway north and south to all the sights of Umbria, Tuscany and beyond.

Getting around

Parking space is just outside the castle walls--it is possible to enter the castle with a car but we prefer to keep the (email hidden). A car is necessary during your stay but the castle is a great departure point for walks in the surrounding hills. You can reach either the Adriatic or Tyrrhenian sea coasts for a day at the beach or catch the local train right in Campello for a day in Rome.

Other Things to Note

Come enjoy life at the castle and, if you have time for an extended stay in the region, consider an additional week at our apartment in the centre of Assisi or ask about our holiday homes on Monte Conero on the Adriatic coast and in Porto Cervo on the Sardinian coast if you'd like to add a beach holiday to your Italian tour. We also have additional rental homes in the Campello area if your group is larger than five.

  • Casa e borgo bellissimi! Posto davvero suggestivo!
    La casa è molto bella e perfetta per 4 persone oppure 5 (perchè c'è un letto singolo in più). A 5 minuti di macchina c'è un paesino dove trovare il necessario per fare la spesa, anche la posizione è ottima per visitare le zone circostanti davvero meritevoli: Spoleto, Montefalco, Spello, Todi ecc..tutte cittadine bellissime! Mariella e tutta la sua famiglia sono davvero ospitali, come tutte le persone incontrate in Umbria in questi 5 giorni! Grazie di tutto, cercheremo di tornare presto!

  • Probably the best place to stay in Umbria ! A wonderful little castle-village in the hills with lovely people inside, absolutely peaceful, with dramatic views over the beautiful countryside. The house is a little temple for design where you can also enjoy sunbathing on the two terraces. Mariella and Sandro from Loreti Arredamenti are just the nicest hosts you can dream about and you will appreciate to enjoy the pool at Sandro's. Don't forget to visit the restaurant Casaline where truffle meals and lamb meat are prodigious, nor to taste Montefalco Sagrantino wine.

About
I've been living in the Spoleto area for more than 25 years and have been helping friends who have holiday homes in the area find great guests who will enjoy staying here for the past five years. I make sure the houses are ready for your arrival and are always even nicer than you'd expected. I want to ensure you have a great holiday and come to love and hopefully return to Umbria whenever you can. I also have a holiday cottage in upstate New York on a golf course on Otsego Lake, close to Cooperstown, on a property I share with my brother.
