- SQM 200
In the valley below Spello this authentic country house has been stylishly refurbished into a comfortable holiday home with private pool. It is a central location to explore Umbria. Spello, Assisi, Foligno, Montefalco and Bevagna are all at a stone's throw.
The Villa Spello is situated along a quiet country lane in the valley between Spello and Cannara. Spello is one of the oldest towns in Umbria where recently Roman remains have been discovered. It is a lively little town and famous for its flower festival at Corpus Domini when the whole town changes into a carpet of flowers.
In the flat garden is a spacious pool of 4 by 16 meters, 1.50 meter deep. To one side is a shallow end. Its dark colour makes it almost invisible in the surrounding landscape with organic crops. Wooden sun decks have been created next to the pool. From the covered terrace you look out over the garden and pool area. There is a large barbecue and a pizza oven. You can just imagine the long evenings by the pool enjoying the authentic Umbrian food and a good glass of wine in the company of friends and family.
In a corner of the garden is a small basketball court that both adults and children will surely enjoy. The position of the house lents itself very well for guests that like to bring their bike. In Canara at only 5 kilometres a bicycle path passes by that connects Spoleto with Assisi.
Distances from the house:
Spello 8 minutes, Cannara 8 minutes, Assisi 20 minutes, Foligno 20 minutes, Bevagna 15 minutes, Montefalco 25 minutes, Perugia 30 minutes, Todi 45 minutes, Spoleto 50 minutes, Lake Trasimeno 45 minutes.
The ground floor of the villa has a living room and kitchen. It is all furnished in a rural chic style. The kitchen has a dishwasher, a cooking hob, an oven and a large refrigerator with freezer. Every morning the owners will make sure that their guests find everything here for a good breakfast to start the new day. There is a daily maid service as well as pool maintenance.
Furthermore on the ground floor is an extra room that can be used as a television room or studio, but can also be turned into a bedroom with either two single beds or one double bed. This room has an ensuite bathroom with shower.
