Description

La Casetta is a beautiful 2 bedroom luxury villa in the historic town of Spello in the heart of Umbria. The villa is set within the town's narrow cobbled streets, nestled against the town walls and it enjoys incredible west facing views of the valley, farms and hills. It's central location within the town means guests can walk to a number of restaurants and yet it has the feel of being in the heart of rural Umbria.

Inside, the cottage is exceptionally stylish, furnished with pieces from around the world which have been collected by the owner on her extensive travels. Her attention to detail and eclectic mix of styles has imbued the property with a character and warmth that is rarely found in a holiday home. Originally a simple stone building on the edge of Spello's town walls, it has been completely re-designed and restored so that the overall feel is now fresh and contemporary. 

Guests enter the property via a stylish lobby. A bright Moroccan rug and cushions adds colour. However, the eye is drawn along the stone path and raised flower beds to the spacious garden on your left. Straight ahead a covered outdoor seating area sits adjacent to the open plan kitchen and living area.

As guests enter the property, they will see the pretty, practical but perfectly furnished kitchen and living space. On the right is the kitchen and dining area. To the left there is a comfortable, linen-covered sofa opposite a fireplace with a modern flat screen television set on a low table. A French-style café table and chairs, linen blinds and curtains and a pair of old Belgian metal shutters (hiding china and cutlery) add character to the open-plan space. The floors throughout are a soft, taupe resin finish and the accent colour is Hermes orange. It is a chic, cheerful and modern space.

An arched doorway leads to 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. 

The master bedroom truly is a peaceful and romantic retreat, with breathtaking views over farmlands and the Chiona hills beyond.  The king-size bed has a natural linen cover and the curtains are made from fine Indian saris bought in Pondicherry. Wall hung clothes hooks have been copied from a traditional Italian design and there are linen-lined baskets for folded clothes.  A pair of vintage, red velvet chairs perfectly pull together the colours of the Moroccan rug and the stripes in the curtains. 

Adjacent to this room is the smaller second bedroom. This room is fresh and bright with its red, orange and white colour scheme. The curtains are a mix of sari fabric and white linen. A cosy Tyrol blanket and Etro cushions add texture to this charming room. Clothes hooks and baskets are provided as in the master bedroom.

Both bedrooms share the gleaming white modern bathroom. A large shower, good directional lighting, an oversize hot towel rail and wall mirror combine to make bathing a delight.

Outside, the property has the luxury of a large private garden, enjoying both shaded areas under pergolas or bright sunshine on the green lawns. This is a real rarity in such an ancient town. Rosemary, sage, verbena, thyme and lavender scent the air whilst pomegranates ripen in the trees in the Autumn and climbing roses wind their way up a pergola built against ancient stone walls.

An outside annexe houses a washing machine and tumble dryer, ensuring that the property is both practical as well as luxurious!

Spello itself is an enchanting hillisde town. It has a peacefulness and elegance about it that you can't fail to fall in love with, whilst the town's restaurants are famed for their superb cuisine and excellent wines. It also makes an excellent base from which to explore the wider area. Orvieto, Todi, Citta di Castello, Gubbio and Spoleto are all within easy reach along with the highly praised wine producing region of Montefalco. There are numerous activities to enjoy too including horse riding, hiking, cycling, rafting and sailing as well as cross-country skiing in the Winter, making it an ideal holiday destination all year round.

Please note that this property can be rented along with BFY14500 and BFY14501 to provide space for up to 15 guests altogether.

I very much hope we will be able to return before too long.

My husband and I spent an idyllic week at La Casetta, at the beginning of August, and fell completely in love with Spello and the surrounding countryside. La Casetta is spacious and very comfortable (with a lovely view from the main bedroom window) and had everything in it that we could need. We very much appreciated being within a quick walking distance from the centre of the town. We also very much enjoyed having the private space of the lovely garden to sit in. Andrea was a very welcoming host, and I very much hope we will be able to return before too long.

We had a wonderful time staying in your Casetta for the past week.

We felt like we were at home! It is lovely and we felt very relaxes. We could not wait to come “home” from our day trips and sit in the garden to read and eat. We also want to thank you for all your personal assistance. You made our stay in Spello complete.
