“Our third stay in Terrazza Bella in 6 years- a wonderful apartment with a great location!”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We have been booking with Norma and Laurie for more than 10 years now and have stayed in a number of their amazing properties. As other reviewers have noted, they provide a level of service and true concern for their guests that I have found is quite unique in my extensive travels around the globe.

We love this apartment. It's on the second to top floor of the building and has a great big terrace furnished with a good-sized table for 4-6, lounge chairs, and an amazing assortment of container flowers -- It's like a garden wonderland up here (I am typing this from the garden, using the handy WI-FI).

The kitchen is very nice (but who comes to Italy to cook??) with a good sized refrigerator (even by American standards!), a four-burner gas stove, a dishwasher, microwave, toaster, and lots of dishes and serving utensils. It is very complete. A good sized living room looks out onto the patio (two doors open to the patio) and has comfortable leather sofas and a new TV, plus a desk where we always set up our ipads and laptops. Both wired and wireless internet is provided free of charge.

The bathroom is also very nice with a shower head that lights up when you turn it on...! I've never seen that before! The washer is essential for longer stays and works well.

So why do we keep returning to this specific apartment? All of the above, plus it's so convenient. There's parking in the back, and elevator (with ramp from parking, no steps!) to bring up your luggage, then out the front you are in the middle of Spoleto..... everything is right there, from coffee shops to restaurants. We always have a car and drive all over Umbria and even Tuscany from this apartment but it's wonderful to sometimes just leave the car parked and enjoy "our" wonderful town.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

“LOVELY apartment, the best of hosts in a charming Umbrian town”
Reviewed May 23, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

At this very moment, my friend and I are sitting in the living room of the beautiful Bella in Spoleto. Late afternoon light is flooding in the glass doors and double windows, warming the view of the green hills and scattered tile-roof houses beyond our terrace. Yet, we step out our front door into the heart of things.
Everything here has been made easy by hosts Laurie and Norma. They helped arrange a driver from Rome airport, Laurie gave a great briefing and packet of information upon arrival and they have been helpful and responsive throughout our 3-week stay. The apartment is as well-provisioned as any we've seen; small and thoughtful touches abound. The elevator makes our coming and going a breeze.
Spoleto and Bella are the perfect place to relax into Umbria or sightsee beyond this charming city. People tend to come here and either return for more time the following year or yearn to purchase a home here!

“Great apartment in medieval centre with the best hosts you could have”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 for a stay in March 2013
1
person found this review helpful

I can't speak highly enough about this apartment or the hosts. Want to imagine you really are living in Bella Italia? Stay here. A spacious, renovated apartment with large terrace in the medieval centre of magnificent, Spoleto: an Umbrian hilltop city full of art and history, that includes a castle resided in by Lucrezia Borgia, and a city gate that was visited by Hannibal and his last elephant. Laurie and Norma are the best hosts you could imagine, there are personal touches and colourful EXTRAS in this apartment that make your stay sublime, you can feel the passion and care in what these two do, and they offer great tips re local restaurants and outings. But hey, what am I telling you for? I want this place again for ME next year...and the year after...and the year after that. Fortunately Norma and Laurie manage lots of great rental apartments (because you will have to fight me for this one :)
