Der Zustand der Wohnung hat der Beschreibung entsprochen. Wir wurden von Luana sehr herzlich begrüßt und sie hat uns wertvolle Tipps zu Spoleto und Umgebung gegeben.
Die Wohnung liegt sehr zentral und ist durch die Laufbänder im Untergrund von Spoleto und den Aufzügen sehr gut erreichbar.
Sollten wir wieder in Gegend kommen, werden wir sicherlich wieder mit Luana Kontakt aufnehmen.

Luana was at the meeting point when we arrived and made us feel most welcome. The apartment was as described on airbnb and very centrally located in Spoleto, in a quiet location which felt very safe. Luana gave us good advice on sightseeing and eating out and left a comprehensive range of brochures which we used extensively.
The location was perfect. Right in the center of Spoletto, easy parking at the underground lot half a mile walk. We were late because of various mishaps and I couldn't call because my phone was stolen in Rome. The host's friend had waited 2 hours for us when we finally got to her. The apartment was lovely.
Il Loft di Luana è un vero gioiellino, pulito, confortevole e molto romantico..... è esattamente come lo si vede in foto! La sua posizione ti permette di visitare Spoleto a piedi senza dover prendere la macchina. Lo consiglio a tutti coloro che vogliono scoprire L'Umbria e i suoi borghi. Anna
Grazie Anna, il tuo entusiasmo è coinvolgente, è stato un vero piacere averti ospite.
S', è vero, tengo molto alla pulizia degli appartamenti e alla cura nel dettaglio, quando si è in vacanza tutto deve essere perfetto!
...sono sempre felice quando chi viene si sente a proprio agio e porta a casa un bel ricordo della vacanza a Spoleto.
A presto ; )

About the Host, Luana
Hi, my name is Luana Zangarelli and I'm a property manager,
my Agency called ITALY TO RENT offers lovely apartments in the best Umbrian historic centres, villas and country houses in exclusive Italian locations.
All the properties have a high quality level, perfect locations, elegant interiors, in some cases have outdoor spaces and swimming pool.
I've started in 2009 managing "Spoletium Holiday Apartments", beautiful self-catering apartments to rent in the historic centre of Spoleto and in the surroundings, and I've recently expanded my porfolio including villas and country houses in other Italian locations.
With my Agency I can reserve for guests many activities and tours: guided tours, tasting tours, nature walkings, tickets for events, transfer with taxi, bike rental, horse riding, cooking lessons and much more.
I really love my job because I love art, history, nature and the relationship with other people that this job offers.
About me... I've studied Languages at School and then Art restauration, in the past years I was restorer of ancient books and parchments (I used to work for the Vatican Library in Rome), my hobbies are hiking and free climbing, walking in the forests and mountains.
I try to do my best to take care of every aspect, to offer my guests an unforgettable experience during their stay.
An important element for me is the relationship with guests. The best aspect of my job is to meet people coming from all over the world, exchanging ideas and experiences.
Salve, mi chiamo Luana e dal 2009 di affitti turistici nelle più belle località dell'Umbria. Da un pò di tempo ho allargato il mio portfolio aggiungendo proprietà esclusive fuori dall'Umbria, ville e casali.
Ogni volta che una persona sceglie di soggiornare in una delle proprietà che propongo, sono felice e al contempo emozionata, sento la responsabilità del mio ruolo e faccio di tutto per offrire a chi viene un soggiorno indimenticabile, rilassante e all'altezza delle sue aspettative... perchè il tempo dedicato alle vacanze è estremamente prezioso.
Di solito si vive freneticamente tutto l'anno e quando si sceglie un appartamento in centro storico o un casale immerso nel verde come meta per le vacanze o anche solo per un weekend, lo si fa perchè si ama il fascino pacato dei centri storici o la quiete della natura, perchè ci si vuole immergere in un'atmosfera d'altri tempi, fra arte e cultura, assaporando i prodotti genuini che il territorio offre e magari, per chi ama camminare nella natura, scoprendo la campagna o le montagne circostanti.
Scritte fra le righe trovate le mie passioni: l'arte, la natura, la storia, la danza, la musica, la vita all'aria aperta, i rapporti interpersonali, il dare e ricevere emozioni.
Sono umbra ma spoletina di adozione e amo molto questa splendida parte d'Italia, mi piace condividere la mia conoscenza del territorio con chi decide di soggiornare in uno dei miei appartamenti/casali, mi offro volentieri, tramite la mia Agenzia ITALY TO RENT di pianificare itinerari di visita, percorsi nella natura, tour enogastronomici, degustazioni, brevi corsi di cucina regionale e divertenti corsi di lingua italiana per i tanti turisti stranieri che ho ogni anno.
Il mio motto è... la felicità è respirare a pieni polmoni
