This offer is subject to Laurie, my husband, being available and the car being OK. To date, we have always been able to provide this service ! Arrival/Departure dates flexible, subject to availability. Impressive features of Spoleto By The Pool are the infinity pool, the Jacuzzi, the grounds, the ornamental water fall and the spectacular panoramic views from the windows, balcony and terraces of all 6 of the apartments. Standing on a small hill, outside the city walls, Spoleto By The Pool is the nearest and largest pool property to central Spoleto. Add to that, a stunning and convenient location - simply unbeatable ! 0.75 kms to the train station, from where you can get to practically anywhere in Italy. This location is the best ! Spoleto centre and the station within spitting distance and the mountains are all around you. Spoleto By The Pool is a tranquil place with easy access to all the hot-spots….Assisi, Perugia, Trevi, Spello, Norcia, Perugia, Todi, Gubbio and, just over an hour to Rome. Once upon a time, there were 2 farm cottages... Both these 16C cottages were originally inhabited by farm workers; and, the whole of Il Pincio, the hill that Spoleto By The Pool stands on and is locally known as, was owned by the next door neighbours. Delicate negotiations over several years enabled a local builder to buy and develop the land, whose aim was to sell both cottages to passing millionaires. But, financial challenges resulted in this wonderful development falling into our hands and, instead of being privately owned by yet more rich people, you can enjoy what it is like to live in a sought after area, so close to historic Spoleto. While all the original features have been preserved eg beams, arches and cubby holes, APT 4 has not lost its traditional appeal. Simply and practically furnished, APT 4 is child-friendly and equipped fully with everything you could need on a holiday. This absolutely brilliantly designed group of 6 self catering apartments is not just an aesthetic delight and completely authentic, Spoleto By The Pool is perfectly placed for those who want the best of all possible worlds. At the end of your lane, just a few minutes walk, there is a bus-stop from where you can hop on a bus to reach the top of Spoleto and the famous Rocca and Il Ponte. Very convenient if you only fancy walking down-hill, through the pretty, cobbled and arched streets of Spoleto, passing the myriad of shops, bars and restaurants along the way, pausing only for a flute of chilled prosecco, a gelato or a cappuccino or all three ! Staying here, you want for nothing ! A mellow, beautiful and tranquil place, the waterfall, the jacuzzi, the manicured grounds, the BBQ area and the infinity pool, all ensure that you can lie back and totally relax. One moment you are floating in the pool and the next you are wandering in the fairy-tale city of Spoleto, through arched, cobbled streets, exploring alleyways and byways, admiring frescoes, browsing museums, visiting churches and indulging your senses in the many shops, bars and restaurants, sampling the finest that Italy can offer and, far more cheaply than touristy places such as Venice, Todi or Florence. Umbria's most up-market supermarket is just 5 min walk down the lane. At the bar, sipping your proseccho, you can spot famous faces from all over the world, Yet, lounging in the landscaped grounds, you are unaware that the local facilities are so close. There is no traffic on the lane leading to the apts, except for the cars belonging to the owners of the other 2 villas along this lane. Here is tranquility, a choice of town or country, at the same time. The glamorous pool (100 sq mts) is the largest and closest pool, either private or public, to the historic centre of Spoleto. With lots of sun-loungers placed around a wide patio area surrounding the pool, guests can sunbathe and relax without undue disturbance from other guests. A wide patio area forms a complete border around the pool and, therefore, it is easy to retain absolute privacy, should you wish to. The grounds are expansive with nooks and crannies where you can sit in privacy. So you never have to be “friendly” with anyone else staying there if you don't want to be. If you want solitude, it is easy to 'hide away' with a book. From anywhere in the gardens, there are the most stunning panoramic views of the pool, the hills and the countryside beyond. Magnificent views across swathes of crop fields, monasteries and mountains fringing the horizons. Here is a place to just be, to allow yourself to be mesmorized and to submit to an inner calm. FREE PARKING.... There is a private car-park adjacent to both the Spoleto By The Pool cottages.....More

About the neighbourhood
A glimpse into Spoleto life... Spoleto is one the most un-touristy places you will find. Extremely popular with Italians because, not only is it beauitful, but, the Spoletini have remained faithful to their traditions. Here you will find live theatre, operas, concerts, ballets and plays, all year round. foreigners are welcomed. The language of food, wine and clothes is universal. Further, in Spoleto, as well as the surrounding villages and hill-top towns, sagras take place throughout the year, celebrating the harvesting of truffle, asparagus, olives, grapes, maize, tomatoes....... Halloween and various saints' days. Big spreads are provided, free of charge (or almost), as a kind of offering to the gods, a thanksgiving of good fortune
