Interaction with Guests
We will meet you with the keys and show you over the house. Feel free to ask us questions via phone or email at any time!
The very heart of the old town centre means the last daily farmers market is a one-minute walk away, as are all the specialty shops and great restaurants on the market square. Museums, attractions and events are all just a few steps further (don't miss the mosaics in the Roman House which is just across the street).
Regular bus service connects the center of town with the train station and the connecting buses running through the town and to nearby towns and villages. The Spoleto train station is on the Rome-Ancona line so a day trip to Rome is easy.
Other Things to Note
The Festival of Two Worlds, the Spoleto Summer Festival, the Stagione Lirica Sperimentale, Opera, Dance, Theater and lots of Music are available throughout the year and especially in the summer months. Hiking, bike rentals, horseback riding, truffle hunts, wine tours, olive oil tours: the Spoleto area is host to many events and activities.
Please don't smoke in the house, thank you! Please leave the house in order and respect the nature of a private home, which your hosts also use when you are not visiting. Please no loud music or television after 11 PM. Please let us or the housekeeper know as soon as possible if you have any questions, problems or need any assistance. We look forward to having you return to our home whenever possible.
From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 4 nights.
We enjoyed a week at Sophie's lovely apartment at Spoleto.
The position is perfect, in the historic centre, near the Duomo, and we were delighted with Spoleto.
Sophie' apartment was everything we hoped for, roomy comfortable , and quiet. Their were many beautiful pieces of furniture.
We plan to come back next year.
We had a lovely stay in casa leone and in spoleto and Sophie was most helpful beforehand and in making sure all was ready for us. It's all exceedingly charming and restful. We're keen to come back!
This apartment is even more gorgeous than the photos suggest. It has a wonderful mix of antique charm and modern convenience, and is beautifully furnished and decorated. Its location cannot be beaten. It is right around the corner from the Duomo and a quick walk to the Rocca Albornoziana fortress. Sophie was very prompt in answering our questions, helping us with everything from parking lots to WiFi passwords. The woman who let us in and to whom we returned keys, Natascha, was also very helpful. Highly recommended!
Una casa pazzesca in un luogo straordinario.
Una bellissima esperienza a cento passi veri da una delle cose più belle al mondo: il duomo di Spoleto.
Al centro dell'area pedonale, in una atmosfera di grande fascino dentro e fuori.
Niente da aggiungere. Solo da ricordare e raccomandare.
This was a beautifully restored and tastefully designed living space that had every convenience needed for a wonderful stay. The designer decor and quality furnishings were a feature. We particularly enjoyed cooking and dining in the up to date kitchen and on one occasion, watching the Merchant Ivory classic film Room With A View on the excellent home theatre system. The place is exceptionally well located. Highly recommended.
My friends and I spent 3 weeks in this lovely, charming house. The three bedrooms and 2 bathrooms gave us the room and privacy we needed, and the lovely modern kitchen made eating 'alla casa' almost every night a real joy. After day trips out, we felt very much as if we were 'coming home' in the evening, able to relax in the very comfortable lounge.
Sophie and Natasha were very welcoming. We had a very minor technical problem with the tv system, and Sophie was great in getting it sorted.
We found Spoleto a wonderful base for day trips in Umbria, the public transport system served us very well. We would certainly recommend Spoleto, and this lovely house, which is very centrally located. Walking up and down the steep streets made plenty of gelato eating possible!
Making a long story short, we loved our stay in Sophie's house, in Spoleto. The house is absolutely fantastic: Beautiful (of a luxurious elegance that makes you feel good), well equipped and perfectly located (in the heart of Spoleto's "centro storico" - one of the most incredible towns in the world!), it was just perfect for our family of 6! Communication was very easy and everything was arranged to make our stay memorable. We will certainly come back and we cannot recommend it more!

About the Host, Sophie
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.
