Terrazza Bella/air-con, Spoleto Central, 10 Mins Walk/train Station, Rome 1 hr
DISCOUNTED RATES FOR 5, 6 OR 7 DAYS !! INSERT NEW DATES. THE LONGER YOU STAY, THE LOWER THE DAILY RATE! A car is not necessary because you are 10 mins easy walk to the train station, on the flat, along a wide boulevard, again, with shops, bars, restaurants, gelaterias and a park, along the way. A glamorous 2 bedroom apartment with terrace, Wifi, dish-washer + air-con, on the 4th floor with an elevator, Terrazza Bella has a pretty terrace, full of shrubs, bushes and flowers with mediaeval roof-top and hill views. With Wifi throughout, it has an open-plan sitting/dining room with a fully fitted kitchen, inc dish-washer. And, both bedrooms open onto a long balcony, overlooking pedestrian, mediaeval lanes. In a buzzy, pedestrian area, which is quiet at times, especially during the hallowed siesta period, you are surrounded by shops, bars and restaurants. And, for those interested in history, Terrazza Bella is housed by the famous Rocca Dei Perugini, constructed by the warring Perugini at the turn of the century, who occupied Spoleto for 2 years. The turning point came when a bloody battle commenced outside the Rocca Dei Perugini between the Perugini and the Spoletini, the latter of whom also doused them with flaming oil dropped on their heads from the top of the Torre Del Olio, 2 minutes walk up the lane. The history of this specific spot makes what happens in the Game Of Thrones look like a walk in the park ! Further, Spoleto opened a travellator at the beginning of 2015, an underground network of moving walkways, escalators and elevators, that connects all parts of Spoleto together. One of its entrances is 2 mins walk away. Diagonally opposite Terrazza Bella is a food shop that sells salami, cheeses, truffles, prosciutto, savoury cakes, biscuits, olive oils and specialist and all at great rates. Very handy. Next to it is a takeaway pizza place, which also offers every type of ready cooked goody you can imagine. There are fresh fruit and veg shops. And, amongst the nearby bars, there is the Chocolate shop and a specialist gelateria. With full catering facilities, you can cater cheaply at home. There is a supermarket, 5 mins walk away. However, the nearby restaurants are extremely good value - all local rates. No touristy rip-off rates here ! With an elevator and the possibility of a car space for an extra 50 euros/week, Terrazza Bella is in the best location if a buzzy context is what you are after. Surrounded by shops, bars and restaurants, busy at times, quiet at others, especially during the afternoon, when all shuts until 4 pm. Our small partnership group, ourselves included, own all the properties that we advertise, about 60 in all, from villas with pools to smart town houses to central city apartments. Subsequently, we can organise olive oil tasting, wine tasting, chef at home, eating in chef's house, truffle hunting, picnics with a donkey, cheese making, caving, canyoning, rafting, canoeing, horse you at better rates than you get going through the conventional channels. This is because all the aforementioned activities, except for horse-riding, are offered by our partners to ensure you have the holiday of a lifetime ! For instance, the olive oil of one of our partners (Ciarletti) was blessed by the Pope 2 years ago, after it had won the top prize in Italy. He, amongst other of our partners, offers olive oil tasting, accompanied by a lunch, at his farmhouse. All our activities are totally authentic, put on by Italians, whose familes go back for centuries and who have been in the truffle, olive oil and wine trade for all of that time. And, because all the activities we offer are "inhouse" we can undercut all the "professional" businesses, for whom it is their livelihood. Such activities are not our livelihood. Neither are they the livelihood of our partners. We and our partners offer these activities with the aim of enriching your holiday. Also, included in the rate is a Welcome Pack : pasta, pasta sauce, olive oil, wine, tea, coffee, sugar, milk + toiletries to start you off. This may be if no interest to you but I’ve been awarded the status of SUPERHOST across all 80 of the apts, villas and pool properties I manage (some of which I own) by that well known holiday rental site that is disrupting the world at the moment. So, you can be rest assured you are in good hands!!
