“Wonderful Base for Exploring Umbria”
Reviewed 20 April 2018 for a stay in September 2017

The Augustus apartment in Casa Spello is a beautifully restored, two level apartment in Spello, just above the wall on the western side of town, near the Porta di Venere. It is a 3-4 minute walk to the main street in town with its restaurants and small shops. Note that the short street the house is on is extremely steep cobbles and brick, so this would not be a good choice for someone with mobility issues, although I managed it using a cane.

The website descriptions and photos accurately reflect the reality.

You climb a short flight of stone steps to a small front porch, with has a bench and stone table, large enough for two (three with a squeeze)to use for dining. The view is down alongside the town, and across to the valley. It is the highway side, so not quite as bucolic or silent as from the other side of town, but you do get glorious sunsets.

Inside on the first floor is a very well equipped kitchen, with stove/oven, microwave, toaster, large fridge/freezer, desk area, and table for four. We found it easy to cook complete meals, and there was a good range of cooking equipment and some staples. The large living room has two sofas and a daybed, and lots of local guides and materials. Our son reported the daybed was fairly comfortable. A half bath also downstairs. Upstairs is a large bedroom, comfortable bed with firm mattress. Washing machine in the hall. Large bathroom with small walk-in shower, double sinks and bidet. Plenty of good towels. A welcome rarity-- all windows have pull-down screens!

Since Spello is a hilltown with limited parking inside the walls, you park about a 10 minute walk away. On our arrival day we drove up into town on the main street, dropped our luggage with one person while the driver continued out of town to park. We found the best parking for us was Lot 4, up at the top of town just beyond the gate leading to via Giulia. Nadia the keyholder will show you on the map. (take via Circonvallazione from the Borgo)

There are three other apartments in the house, and a shared garden down below with table and chairs. Wifi was on the slow side, especially in the morning and evening when the other apartments are all using it. We used a mifi connected to a phone during those times.

The owner and keyholder are both very responsive and helpful. Nadia the keyholder speaks English, helped with our luggage and was always available via text if needed.

We found this to be a comfortable base for a two week stay, and would recommend it. Spello attracts bus tours for short periods of time for people to wander up and down the main street, but at night the town returns to its sleepy self. The village school in the center of town, and residents chatting at the commuter bus stop or shopping at the forno remind you that this is a real, living town. There are a few shops up in town, and more in the modern Borgo at the base-- a good supermarket, forno, fruit and vegetable store, etc. Our best meals in town were at Il Pituricchio, and La Cantina; and L'Orlando Furioso in the Borgo for pizza.

“A wonderful apartment in a fascinating part of Umbria”
Reviewed 4 November 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We spent two months in two apartments in Casa Spello and we wish we could have stayed longer. The apartments are comfortable, clean and very well equipped. The garden is lovely and we spent many evenings on the deck watching the sunset and recounting stories of our day. Spello is the perfect base from which to explore the valley between Spoleto and Perugia. You can cycle and hike, visit vineyards, olive groves and small towns, explore Assisi, Perugia and Spoleto and Tuscany. The train is easy to access as is the highway. The people are welcoming and friendly and keen to share the unique for and wine in the area. We will be back!

“Wonderful apartment with stunning views!”

Casa Spello....what a wonderful place to stay! From the moment we booked with Gina, the promptness of replies, attention to detail and information we were sent was fantastic. Nadia, the key lady who met us was wonderful! Her customer service was exceptional when she offered to made numerous phone calls trying to find my sisters lost luggage. With Nadia's persistence, the courier finally delivered it!
The apartments had everything we needed to cook our own meals and relax in the terrace garden overlooking the Umbrian countryside. We loved the village life and enjoyed going to the little grocer and deli daily to purchase what we needed for the day. There are also some wonderful restaurants in Spello! For two couples, the Marc Anthony Apartment and the adjoining Cleopatra Apartment were perfect for our stay as it gave us extra space.
There is only one taxi in Spello and the driver is fantastic. We booked him for the day to go to Assisi and Montefalco, but we would hire a car next time (yes, we want to go back to Casa Spello again!) so we could experience a lot more of this beautiful area in Italy.

“Great apartment in magical Umbrian village”
Reviewed 13 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We were 4 adults staying in Tiberius. It was a perfect apartment as it had 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms which gave us a lot of room for our 3 week stay. The apartment had everything you could need. Lots of kitchen utensils to make meals and plenty of blankets/towels/sheets/etc. We really enjoyed the garden and the sunset drinks on the deck.
Gina was fabulous and very helpful with information prior to our arrival. Nadia met us to check us in.
We used the local taxi to transfer us from the Rome Airport after a long flight from Australia which cost around E240.00 for 4 adults. A little more expensive than the train but after 35 hours on a plane, we thought it would be easier to get picked up. Casmiro collected us at the airport and transferred us to Spello without any hassles. We also used Casmiro for a few short trips during our stay, he is very conveniently parked in the piazza.
I would highly recommend Casa Spello for accommodation. Spello was a fantastic village. After 3 weeks, we felt like we were a part of the community, everyone is so friendly.

“Quirky!”
Reviewed 4 February 2017 for a stay in October 2016

Six of us stayed at Casa Spello in Oct in the Tiberius unit. Nadia, the keyholder, met us in the town square and helped us get the luggage up the hill. She was available by text anytime we needed her assistance. It was much appreciated. Casa Spello is an ancient building with modern amenities. The kitchen and bathrooms are very well designed. There is not much storage in two of the bedrooms but there is a hall closet available to the twin bedroom. There are lots of extra blankets and towels available. The views across the valley are spectacular. Gina contacted us right away after the earthquake in the area to reassure us that Spello was unaffected. She was also helpful when we had to call her in the night when the fire alarm was going off. The wifi is not strong in most of the unit but cellular reception works near the bedroom windows. This is not surprising with the thick stone walls but each unit would benefit from having its own router.

Management Response

Thank you for your review. Since you stayed with us the fire alarm which went off during your visit has been changed. It was not working and went off by mistake! We have also added a powerful booster to the WIFI in this unit which has been working much better. The booster has enhanced the connection.
Thank you for staying at Casa Spello and please come and visit us again.
Sincerely,
Gina Waldman, Owner manager of Casa Spello Tiberius
