We stayed as a family of five in one of the first floor apartments. The most comfortable bed I had in our 2 weeks in Italy. Ernesta is a very kind and genuine host and works incredibly hard - which is evident from the standard of the accommodation and breakfasts. The pool was just lovely and the surrounding countryside is... More

We spent 3 nights during June 2015 at Agriturismo Il Barco and enjoyed our stay very much. The house is located outside Spello (about ~8 minutes drive by car, partly in dirt roads, not accessible by public transportation) and is surrounded by crop fields. The beautiful house has a lovely garden filled with fruit trees, some chicken, and even a... More

Our stay at Il Barco was one of the highlights of our recent trip to Italy and Europe. Around 5 km from Spello, the agriturismo is located on a small farm reached via a series of small country lanes. It comes complete a host of animals including chickens, ducks, cows and one very relaxed dog. We stayed in the Pomegranate... More

Just 5km from pretty Spello is Il Barco. A small 20 acre farm run by - Antonio & Ernesta. Antonio takes care of the property, and speaks fluent English, Ernesta runs the accommodation. We rented Promagranate - a very large 1 bedroom apartment with a huge terrace which looks onto a newly built swimming pool and the lovely Umbrian landscape.... More

Nice agriturismo about 10 minutes from beautiful Spello village. My Satnav eventually got us to the house, but via a devious route – better ask the owners for directions (or follow the directions on the website). The mini flat included kitchen/sitting room plus bedroom and bathroom, all spacious and well equipped. It’s not up in the hills but down on... More

A real agriturismo with animals and great food produced by the owners. Although we only had the benefit of breakfast, since it was off-season and we were the only guests, we would love to go back for their other meals. The hostess is a great baker and with her husband friendly to the point that you felt like a relative.... More

If you are looking for the perfect base camp to visit Umbria, Spello is about as central as you can get. At Il Barco you can see both Spello and Assisi from your bedroom window. You are in the middle of the countryside but just a few minutes away from some great restaurants. That is if you actually wish to... More

I stayed at Il Barco with my brother and his wife Sept. 25-27 and we all agree that our stay at Il Barco was a delightful experience. First of all, the owners of Il Barco, Antonio and Ernesta are very friendly, welcoming individuals and they have done a fantastic job in creating such an interesting yet relaxed setting. Ernesta is... More

Our family of four (including 2 teenagers) loved this agriturismo. We stayed for 4 nights in one of the apartments. Overall we loved our stay here and would highly recommend it. In terms of location: - Only a few minutes from Spello which is worth a visit - Centrally located in Umbria to visit a number of other locations: Perugia,... More
