Nestled into the hillside at 'La Licina', an ancient country estate, 'La Ginestra' 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 or to suggest one of the many restaurants in the area....Nestled into the hillside at 'La Licina', an ancient country estate, 'La Ginestra' is an ideal place to relax.

About the neighborhood
Spoleto is famous for its summer arts festival, drawing participants and spectators from around the globe; transforming its sleepy streets, ancient amphitheatre and piazzas into a buzz of activity for a few weeks each summer. Most of the city centre is closed to cars, so you may wander the winding streets and explore its Duomo, numerous churches and speciality shops at a leisurely pace. It boasts many fine restaurants, for every budget, most with outdoor seating, offering specialities from the area, and wine from Umbria and other regions. Assisi is just 20 minutes away, Orvieto, with it's cathedral and underground caves (cool on a hot afternoon), less than an hour.
How to get there
Nearest airport is Perugia, about 40 minutes away, flights from UK and Europe. Rome is approximately 1-1/2 hours away by train or car. Less than 5 minutes from centre of Spoleto. Easy to find, with signs to guide from the major highways and smaller roads. We can arrange to meet you at the train station. Rental cars available in Spoleto (Sixt, Hertz, Avis), or from Rome or Perugia airports.
