“View from tower wonderful... BUT”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

The hotel is easy to find and staff were very gracious, we stayed in the tower, worth paying for, for views, it is a MUST , we did have dinner in the hotel and at 50 euros we were seriously ripped off, the food to be honest was dreadful, I never complain but it was it cold served in such a way that the staff really didn't want be be there, we couldn't see what we were eating and felt that we were putting them out.
Breakfast, to be honest is quite basic and took ages to be replenished , the location is lovely but....
Maybe it was a bad day?
They do have a pool...

My partner and I had the pleasure of staying here for 9 nights. It was completely fantastic from beginning to end. Luigi and Anna are the perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble.

The villa sits 5 mins drive (1 mile) up the hill from Spoleto and the views are amazing. We had breakfast in the sunshine on the terrace in the mornings, with a cool breeze blowing and looking out over the town below. It really was picture perfect.

The breakfasts were excellent, we had museli and yogurt (try the pappa reale, it's fabulous), fresh juice, tea, salami, cheeses, bread, croissants (cake sometimes). There is no wonder I put on weight here, despite swimming in the gorgeous pool. As the hotel was quiet when we stayed (just after the festival) we had a personalised breakfast. Talk about being spoilt and indulgent.

We really enjoyed our stay and didn't want to leave, but we will be back again as soon as we can.

Having stayed in Tuscany a few times, Umbria was a first for us but it didn't disappoint one little bit, we were enchanted with Umbria, Spoleto and most of all with Villa Milani.

Room Tip: We stayed in Antares which is beautiful, cool and opens out onto the terrace.

We spent 4 nights at Villa Milani in September. Upon arrival, we were unable to find the Villa and called the hotel for directions. The owner, Luigi, immediately drove into town to lead us back to the Villa. The staff were waiting to greet us and we were given a small tour of this fabulous Villa. A lovely lunch was prepared for us and enjoyed on the terrace. Our room was very large and well appointed with gorgeous views of town. The bathroom was also quite large. Breakfast was served in a small dining room whenever we were ready. Although it was too chilly for swimming, the pool looked lovely. The Villa sits high above Spoleto but is only 5 minutes from the town. Spoleto was fun to expore with lovely restaurants and reservations were made for us by the Villa. Villa Milani took the place of honor on the cover of Karen Brown's Guide to Tuscany recently and we have found that these guides are a treasure for travelers. Also, Paul Simon was a guest here a few years ago so I think we could not have done better for a place to stay in Spoleto. We loved every minute of it.

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
