La Palombaia - Holiday Homes
Ranked #28 of 54 Specialty Lodging in Spoleto
Reviewed June 20, 2013

We stayed for 4 nights in June 2013, following a recommendation from a family of 7 that had stayed in 2011. What a beautiful location! Poreta is a small village, just a short drive away from many places to see. The house itself is comfortable and tastefully furnished, surrounded by beautiful gardens. Chinzia the friendly owner greeted us with a basket of local foods and was extremely helpful with information about the area. Her recommendations for places to go visit and for restaurants were perfect. You will need a car to see the many villages in the area, but you are also welcome to borrow bikes from the house just to toodle around the neighborhood. Added bonuses: each apartment comes with its own washing machine; there is a small pool if you come with kids; outside the door is a shop run by Chinzia's mother with everything you might need to cook;and bigger stores are a 15 minute drive away in the city of Spoleto.
We are already dreaming of returning someday!

Room Tip: There are 4 apartments in the converted farmhouse. We stayed in Il Portico which has high ceilings...

Not what we expected. While a very pretty setting, the service and attention given were minimal. Would not return.

We stayed at La Palombaia in 2007, and we loved it so much that we came back in 2009. It looks like we will return again in 2011 - this is how much we love the place. The rental is owned by an old family, and managed by the niece of the owner . She is just wonderful. She left us alone, but at the same time, she was attentive to our needs. Some mornings, we would find fresh tomatoes and basil on our doorstep. She and her uncle makes delicious fig and prune jam and generously shares them with the visitors. In the morning, we wake up to bells from the local church, which is wonderful, but begins to sound lonely as the date of our departure draws near. We also love the fact that the place does not have a swimming pool. We feel that adding a swimming pool would take away from the historic integrity of the place. The building also houses the town's only grocery store and cafe (owned by the manager's mother), and we loved hearing the various gossip and conversations between Mama and the customers. Mama will also cater for you and her food is excellent (and reasonably priced). The place is clean and well managed and it is a short driving distance from Spoleto, where you can get groceries. The town of Trevi (birthplace of the slow food movement) is nearby-you can even borrow bikes and tool around town. There is so much to do in the area, but at the same time, it is a great place to relax. We really can't say enough good things about La Palombaia. We highly recommend this place to anyone.
