About this listing
a warm and cozy apartment on the main street of Spello - Via Giulia was the border between the roman village and the "new" medieval quarter - restored only 8 years ago and refurbished with all the modern amenities.
this 2 bedrooms + 2 private bathrooms apartment is located right in the hearth of the medieval city of Spello, 10 minutes far from Assisi ( by car ) and close to every important and historical place in Umbria. The tuscan borders is only 45 minutes by car and in Spello there is also a train station if you prefer to travel by train. The view from the apartment is breathtaking...ove the Spello roofs and with an overview to the amazing country side and the rolling hills of Spoleto and Montefalco.
The apartment is completely furbished and ready to host you for your unforgettable stay.
NOT ok for people unable to climb stairs. The apartment is at the 3rd floor, large and comfortable stairs but....stairs ;-) WIFI included. Parking in the street for free and easy to reach ( less than 3 minutes)
Spello is famous in the world for the art, culture, wine and food, and the extraordinary extra virgin olive oil.
Inside of the village there are many restaurant where you will find yummy local food, bruschetta, hand made pasta, black truffle, fresh vegetables and superb wine. WIll be a pleasure for me to suggest you the best place for your meals. If you love trekking from Spello there a number of trails and also the "Saint Francis trail" that is the most important path in this part of Italy.
no pets allowed. NON smoking apartment. Free wi-fi with speed connection. There are not special rules, the only rule is to respect our apartment, this is not a second house for us but our soul place, so we love to share it but please be respectful
Try do not waste energy and water when in our apartment...the environment will thank you and also Max and Cris
This apartment was located in a fantastic position. The village was beautiful and a great base for exploring Umbria. Max met us in the town square and guided us to the apartment where he gave us lots of information on what to see while we were in Umbria. There was also lots of books and reference material for us to look at. The apartment was very comfortable and the view was awesome but it is on the fourth floor with no lift. The stairs were very easy to climb and they provided a good source of exercise which was essential given all the wonderful food we ate. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this apartment.
Abbiamo passato in questo appartamento un mese, sia con riposo che con lavoro legato ai nostri studi, e Spello ci manca giá da quando siamo arrivati a casa! All'arrivo Max ci é venuto a prendere alla stazione, e ci ha fatto vedere come funzionano e dove si trovano le cose, e da questo punto l'appartamento lo avevamo a nostra disposizione. Appartamento spazioso, carino, pulito e molto ben attrezzato, non mancava nulla! É confortevole anche per soggiorni piú lunghi. Il panorama é veramente incredibile, guardando il paesaggio dalle finestre non ci si sente di stare al pieno centro di un borgo, si vedono le bellissime colline e montagne della zona. Infatti, é comodissima anche la posizione centrale. Insomma, se potessimo, ci torneremmo volentieri nel futuro!
siete stati veramente gli ospiti ideali e mi piacerebbe veramente potervi riavere a Spello e magari poter passare un po' di tempo insieme.
Per la luce in sala, ci avevamo già' pensato e questo inverno faremo delle modifiche per cambiare l'illuminazione.
A presto e salutami tutti.....ho la cartellina di tuo padre in auto e mi fa piacere ricordare bella gente.
beautiful house suitable for six people with all the comfort and owner friendly and helpful. a pleasant experience to advise
Cozy, spacious apartment in a charming village--the apartment has a great location right in the center of where you want to be. Spello is a very quiet, low-key, very pretty town to visit (but Assisi is just a train stop away if you need some hustle-bustle). The apartment is spacious and comfortable. Nice details, feels like a much-loved home. The kitchen is wonderfully-stocked, lots of pots and pans to cook up big dinners. Max was a friendly host, greeted us promptly at the train station (much appreciated as we were with two small children).
Can tell why this apartment is well loved by guests and hosts alike!
BY FAR the nicest/friendliest/helpful couple we have stayed with through airbnb.com. For starters, the town is beautiful! The apartment was spacious and can easily fit 4 adults. Chris met us in the piazza, helped with our bags and then showed us where to park for free, told us about restaurants and any other questions we had were answered too. They also had coffee, juice, tea, milk, snacks and a homemade ...... Well, I forget what its called in Italian, but basically a delicious pie! To top our wonderful trip off, I ran out of gas on the freeway (yes, that happened, and Im not proud) BUT Christina & Max were so helpful and arranged for us to be rescued and taken to a gas station even though we had already checked out and were halfway home! I think we would still be somewhere on A14 today, if not for their help! Overall...we give it more than a 5, especially in kindness and hospitality;) I will be staying here again for my next trip to Umbria!
We loved our stay in Spello. Max met us at the station and even paid for a taxi to get all 6 of us plus bags up to the apartment. There are stairs to climb, but we found them to be OK, especially as we only had to do it once with luggage. The apartment was clean, warm and comfortable. Max was very helpful with information about the area (ie where to buy food etc). As a place to be based for day trips, or just to explore the town itself, we would stay here again. Thanks!!
Max met us at a local enoteca when we arrived and showed us to his lovely apartment in the center of Spello. He has a great sense of humour and offered some good recommendations for places nearby. We really loved the apartment and the location was ideal. We were minutes within walking distance to the best restaurants in town. There is free parking a 10 minute walk away, wifi and a fully equipped kitchen. We felt right at home and would definitely return to this place again. Spello was one of our favorite hill towns that we visited during our 3 week trip through Tuscany and Umbria! I highly recommend the town and the apartment!
About the Host, Max & Cristiana
Ciao my name is Max and I'm a travel agent and a photographer. I love my country and mostly I LOVE Umbria and Tuscany and the local life style.
I think that in this part of Italy there is a kind of perfect balance, great locations, friendly people, good quality of life, safe cities, medieval villages, superb food and wine....a kind of paradise ;-)
We own a couple of houses/apartments and the one in Spello is our secret place, cozy and warm . Spello is a real jewel, narrow medieval streets, wonderful restaurants, good wine and olive oil, together with a thousand of great locations to visit in less than 30/40 minutes of driving
If you decide to come to our place for me will be a great pleasure to suggest you itineraries, place to visit and share with you a bit of real italian life. Hope to meet you soon
