“'Long Weekend'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2011

Staying in Villa Milani was a real joy. The reception rooms are small and intimate, with doors leading onto the terrace and gardens, with views of the town and hills, exquisite by day and night. The terrace area was transformed from breakfast to evening drinks. The rooms are extremely comfortable with beautiful furniture and spacious bathrooms. We spent time on the loungers around the pool which is well positioned with beautiful views across the valley.
Luigi, his wife and staff could not have been more knowledgable of the area and made sure our stay was special in every way and we left saying it was one of our most memorable breaks.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor, have their own terrace outside space

A few friends went to stay at Villa Milani for a long weekend and we certainly weren't disappointed.
The villa is set on the hillside above the beautiful town on Spoleto so there are magnificent views over the valley and down onto the town. The town itself is a joy to visit with its extraordinary Duomo full of exquisite paintings. If you're a Filippo Lippi fan then the frescoes of the apse are a must.
The villa itself is a real treat. The food was excellent and eating breakfast leisurely on the terrace until at least 11am every morning was wonderful. The staff were all so friendly, helpful and couldn't do enough to make our stay very special.
Luigi is the consummate host with any request being dealt with efficiently and with enthusiasm and interest. You felt that you were his personal guests and no request was too much trouble.
I would go back there like a shot if the opportunity arises.

We took a party of friends to Villa Milani in June - 2011 - and had the best stay of our lifetime. We go to Italy at least once a year and are used to high standards in this type of hotel but Villa Milani exceeded them all. The setting is magnificent and so convenient for Spoleto itself. We had 2 superb meals on the Terrace and in the Garden of the Villa cooked by the superb chef at the Villa. The owner and his staff were so attentive and kind and di everything possible to make our special occasion a joy.

Set up above the town, the views are amazing. Peace, calm and tranquil. breakfast on your own terrace was superb and Luigi was an excellent host. Nothing was too much trouble from sorting out a hire car and train ticket details. He makes your stay very special. We stayed three nights as part of our honeymoon and hope to go back one day

Luigi is the perfect host and speaks excellent English. His 10-room family villa and pool is elegant with stunning views of the Umbria valley, Spoletto and Montefalco. It's perched on a mountain but a convenient drive to the highway and downtown Spoletto. Excellent food and service and just a wonderful overall experience!

This was our second visit to this wonderful villa ,having stayed there three days last year . This year it was a must visit on our tour through Italy and we stayed for a wonderful four days . The villa is absolutely beautiful and kept very clean . Luigi is a wonderful host and nothing is to much trouble . We intend to work our way through all the rooms and eventually one day stay in the tower , what a plan !
Breakfast on your own terrace with a view that takes your breath away makes it just one of the very special efforts the staff here go to and the pre dinner drink in the outstandingly furnished drawing room is a perfect start to a romantic evening .
Our only small gripe this time was because of the recession the prices had been lowered making the villa more affordable to families and at times our peace was disturbed by screaming children playing at the pool , having had children we are now at a stage where we pay a little more for peace and quiet .
However this would not stop us going again .
Go , you wont be disappointed .

Stayed for two nights in the Tower room. The view - WOW. The hotel sits on a hill and the room has no walls - just windows all around - fantastic.

That said, you should be reasonably fit to book this room. As soon as you open the door to the room there is a flight of stairs to a small landing. Off this landing is the bathroom and a small closet. Then, another flight of stairs up to the tower bedroom and the, I just have to repeat myself - the WOW view.

We were fine with this but be careful with the steps at night in particular. This room doesn't have a shower, just a hand-held thing you use in the tub.

The area is terrific to explore. There are also some nearby restaurants if you choose to eat off-property.

We would absolutely stay at the hotel again and I don't know how we could stay in any other room. Although, I guess there is a small separate cottage room too :)
