Spoleto, Province of Perugia, Umbria
Nestled into the hillside at 'La Licina', an ancient country estate, 'La Ginestra' is an ideal place to relax.
Just minutes from the centre of Spoleto, famous for it's summer arts festival, its restaurants and its picturesque winding medieval streets. Away from traffic and the main roads, it is a haven of quiet and privacy, yet close to all services and attractions.

Steps away from your door, set among a four hectare olive grove, is the swimming pool; with a shallow end perfect for children, and lounge chairs for sun-bathing or reading in the shade.

With only one other apartment on the large property, your privacy is assured - yet the helpful English-speaking owners are nearby to assist you; with directions to nearby attractions or to suggest one of the many restaurants in the area.

We have been coming here for six years now. It is still as good as ever, except that the weather is drier and hotter! Unusually, they have vacancies in July and August, so why not come and enjoy. And even at current exchange rates, food and wine are cheap. This part of Umbria has been hardly affected by last year's...

Francesca served as a guide for our group of friends in Rome and in Spoleto. She is a superb guide, brilliantly integrating history, art, nature. Easy and fun to be with. She invited us to come for a snack at La Licina. What a spectacular spot! The fruit trees were fruiting, the position is romantic and peaceful. The location is...

We loved our stay here. Ludo and Francesca were really welcoming and very helpful. They recommended places to eat and places to visit, all of which we enjoyed hugely. They booked us tables and Ludo escorted us to the bike hire on his moped! The apartment was roomy, well-equipped and tastefully decorated. The garden outside was spacious and tranquil.

Thank you, we are so happy that you had a good time and we hope to have you again at La Licina, Arrivederci, Ludovico e Francesca

It boasts many fine restaurants, for every budget, most with outdoor seating, offering specialities from the area, and wine from Umbria and other regions.
