As other reviewers have said, this apartment is PERFECT. Located in a charming, historic building, it is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Monica is a thoughtful and helpful host. And, the village of Spello is lovely. If we were to return to Umbria, this would definitely be our first choice for accommodations.
We visited Spello for a weekend, and I was amazed by the beauty of this apartment.
It has a two double bedroom, one with an ensuite bathroom and the other one with a family bath just next to it. There is a large lounge/dining room with the kitchen and a terrace with a stunning view of the all village. The kitchen has everything you will need for your stay, something for breakfast and a few snacks. Also a bottle of wine and some beers.
The apartment is furnished with shabby chic, which makes it a beautiful place to spend a balmy evening sipping some prosecco with friends.
Also the place is basically in the centre of Spello with lots of restaurants and bars on your doorstep.
I would like to write a few words about the owner, Monica. First of all she is one of the best host I ever encountered on my many travels. Before getting to Spello she told us where to go and what to do, also she came to pick us up from the airport and she also drove us back.
We had plenty of water, juices etc….in the fridge and gave us a bottle of olive oil as a gift. To me this is going above and beyond hosting, and I will definitely go back to Spello House the next time I will visit. If I could I would give six stars….but I guess 5 will have to do!!!!!
I hate to repeat what other reviewers have already said, but this place is perfect! Monica is a wonderful host who thought of everything to make our stay comfortable- food in frig, home baked cake, Kleenex(rare in Europe), a flashlight by the bed! The only things that might be a concern are: 1). The apartment is located at the entry gate to the town. This means that there is a fair amount of foot traffic in the area, which results in voices, sometimes loud, until late at night. After the first night, to remedy this, we turned on the AC which provided cool air and drowned out any voices so that we could sleep comfortably. 2). The apartment is on the top floor - 3rd floor by American standards, so be prepared to carry heavy luggage up. 3) the free parking lot that used to be close to the entry gate is no longer free except from 7:00 pm - 9:00 am. You can pay to park during the day. We opted to park for free at the lot that was about a three block walk away. I tell you these things only for your own information. It's personal preference if they would be a bother or not. For us, the positives far outweighed any inconvenience of these items. We would gladly stay again!!
Where do I start. Firstly it was really hard to get my husband to go on this holiday and after staying in Spello at Spello House (Altana) he did not want to leave. Location is excellent everything at your doorstep, restaurants, groceries and beautiful friendly people. This medieval village is very special very close to Speleto and Assisi. Monica (the owner) was the best, her hospitality was beyond excellent. When we arrived the cupboards were full of food and she had even baked us a beautiful cake. We stayed for 10 nights in her gorgeous villa and during this time she was only a phone call away for anything we required even offering to drive us around. Half way through our stay she knocked on our door with another home made lemon tart, awesome. Monica also had excellent recommendations for different places to go she has a list in the villa of wonderful places to visit. Even making bookings for us for different restaurants and outings. Thank you Monica for sharing your amazing villa with us and Thank you for all you did for us to make our stay extremely memorable. We will definitely be back.
We could not have been better welcomed and looked after. Spello is a delightful place and Umbria a wonderful region. Monica (and her father) made it all the better for us and our friends, who had flown all the way from Australia to join us.
Gorgeously furnished and decorated apartment with a rooftop terrace that provides a stunning view of the medival town of Spello. The apartment has all the necessary appliances and the lovely landlord, Monica, was even kind enough to fill up the fridge and pantry with goodies for our stay. We thoroughly enjoyed dinner and wine on the rooftop and lounging in the living room. Would, however, not recommend for elderly travelers as it involves climbing two flights of stairs. Other than that - perfect! Would definitely recommend it.
This apartment is chic, but certainly not shabby! Light and airy, with quirky but stylish decor and furnishings in cool and sophisticated pastel shades. A great feature is the roof terrace, which has amazing rooftop views over Spello - one of the prettiest of the Umbrian hill towns (and there is plenty of competition on this score). Parking is difficult in Spello, but the apartment's situation near the entrance to the old town (one of the original Roman arches is overlooked by the apartment) means that you can leave your car in a public car park just 2 minutes' walk away. Monica is a very friendly, helpful and thoughtful owner; the variety of food she left for as us a "welcome pack" was amazing.
