Cottage La Casetta
A few steps up the cobblestone street in the historic village of Spello is a charming guest cottage re-designed in a fresh contemporary style, a a home-away-from-home with a beautiful colour palette and objects found from around the world.
The Casetta is available for a minimum of three nights and fully equipped for longer stays (3 pax and a baby) . It is also ideal as extra accommodation for a larger party taking one or more of the other properties: Casa Giardino, Apartment Limone, Apartment Il Cortile, Buonanotte Barbarena, Casa Giardino.
The Entrance: Open the door and a stylish stone lobby sets the scene. Bright Moroccan mementos add a dash of colour and a collection of practical shopping baskets is lined up under a bench. Your eye is drawn along a stone path and raised flowerbeds to a spacious garden.
The Garden: Umbria has excellent climate, and dining or resting en plein air is one of our greatest holiday pleasures – especially after a long day exploring the region. Recline in the shade of a tree or under the pergola on a day bed piled with soft pillows. Enjoy a glass of local wine on the terrace. For many people the most vivid holiday memories are those of warm evenings spent with family or friends in a scented garden.
Kitchen and Living room: The Casetta welcomes you with a light and airy open-plan space. On one side is the kitchen and dining area, on the other a linen-covered sofa facing a fireplace. The floors are of soft, taupe resin. The accent colour is Hermes orange: cheerful and chic. An arched doorway leads to the two bedrooms and the bathroom.
Master bedroom: The clothes hooks were recreated from an old design and below them are linen-lined baskets for clothes. The red curtains go hand in hand with the Moroccan rug and the vintage velvet chairs. Open the window blinds onto a breathtaking view over farmlands and hills. Nothing of the modern world is to be seen from this romantic retreat – only Italian landscape at its very best.
China's room: The orange-and-white second bedroom is fresh and bright, a smaller and cozy room. Ideal for a single person or as a children's room. There are hooks and baskets for your clothes and a beautiful Tyrol blanket adds texture. (Baby-cot available upon request)
Bathroom: The bedrooms share a modern bathroom. Large rain-shower, good directional lighting and an oversized heated towel rail make your morning routine a delight.
Spello is a medieval village on the slopes of a hill in the beautiful landscape of the Umbrian countryside. Spello is officially classified as one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. As well as the village itself and the Roman and medieval monuments there are many important artworks, o.a. a fresco by Pinturicchio in the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore which is the most important sight in the village. However, much of the pleasure of staying in Spello is simply wandering through the narrow streets of old town, taking in the atmosphere
On request: Cooking classes in a nearby farmhouse, truffle hunt, baby-sitting service, wine or olive oil tastings. Baby cot and high chair available on request €75 per week
Living like a local: It's such a unique experience to live in this historic village and feel like a local. In the morning pop down to the bakery a few doors down, have a coffee standing at the bar and feel like you are part of the community.
