2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5
Nestled into the hillside at 'La Licina', an ancient country estate, 'Il Tartufo' is an ideal place to relax.
Just minutes from the centre of Spoleto, famous for it's summer arts festival, its restaurants and its picturesque winding medieval streets. Away from traffic and the main roads, it is a haven of quiet and privacy, yet close to all services and attractions.

Steps away from your door, set among a four hectare olive grove, is the swimming pool; with a shallow end perfect for children, and lounge chairs for sun-bathing or reading in the shade.

With only one other apartment on the large property, your privacy is assured - yet the helpful English-speaking owners are nearby to assist you; with directions to nearby attractions, arranging a tour or cooking class, or to suggest one of the many restaurants in the area...

La Licina is a wonderful place with incredibly hospitable hosts! We spent two lovely weeks there! The apartament was very comfortable and nice.

We stayed in Il Tartufo, a well equipped apartment which sleeps 5. La Licina is a fabulous base for exploring Umbria. It's only 10 minutes drive from the beautiful city of Spoleto and other lovely towns such as Bevagna, Montefalco, Assisi and Spello are all within an hour's drive. Francesca and Ludovico were fabulous hosts who made us feel incredibly... more

Umbria is, of course, beautiful, as is Spoleto and the surrounding towns, villages and countryside. It's almost a given, and La Licina was the perfect oasis of calm and relaxation. But, without Ludovico and Francesca, our holiday would have been incomplete. They are the best hosts imaginable and we all miss them a great deal. We really could all unwind... more

Grazie Mike! all the best to all of you, we hope to see you again, Ludovico e Francesca more
