Situated in a beautiful spot in the heart of the old hilltop town of Spello, Villa Giardiniera is only five minutes walk to the main square of Piazza della Repubblica, where you'll find a huge range of shops, bars and fantastic restaurants.

There's an abundance of outdoor activities to enjoy in the area (including fishing, hiking and trekking) all found conveniently near to the beautiful hill towns of Umbria. Explore fantastic towns and landscapes around Spoleto, Perugia, Montefalco, Gubbio, Città di Castello, Orvieto and Todi, as well as Assisi, the jewel in Umbria's crown, which is a mere 5km away from Spello!

Lounging in the wonderful garden spaces, taking up your time enjoying resting, reading and dining, is one of the greatest holiday pleasures - especially after a long day making the most of exploring wonderful Umbria!

Villa Giardiniera provides the perfect setting, with the garden specifically designed and planted to allow plenty of space to lie in the sun as it moves from east to west, or to recline in the shade on a day bed. The breathtaking view overlooks the Chiona valley, and thanks to the property's location traffic and noise are distant memories - the only thing before you is the Italian landscape at its very best.

For larger parties it is possible rent sister properties Villa Buona (sleeps 6) or La Casetta (sleeps 2-3) - please follow links for more information.

Oliver Approved

What Oliver loves…

  • The villa enjoys a fantastic location - at the foot of medieval hilltop town, great for exploring one of the most beautiful regions in Italy!
  • The wonderful garden offers unique views and a fantastic place to relax
  • The modern and chic furniture will give your holiday a really sumptuous feel!
  • Complimentary daily cleaning is included, which is seldom the case with villas in Italy.

What you should know…

  • The property is not suitable for guests with walking difficulties and wheelchair users
  • The pool is quite compact (3 x 6 meters) as the property is found in the historic centre where pool sizes are limited accordingly
  • Spello is a quiet village - if you’re looking for a party house, another property would be more appropriate
  • There's no parking in front of the house (but it's only a three minute walk away)

Property Features

Private Pool Internet Air-Con Cable TV Heating

Villa Giardiniera was formerly a simple stone house on the edge of Spello's town walls. This space has been carefully redesigned and restored in a fresh, modern style, where the atmosphere encourages guests to completely relax!

One of the villa's best features is the lush private garden, which offers an inviting pool and wonderful views out across the Umbrian hills. The owner has created a sumptuous home-away-from-home feel, decorated in a carefully chosen palette and adorned with decorative pieces from around the world.

Inside, the kitchen and dining area contains a table that seats up to eight guests. To the left of this is a comfortable sofa opposite a flat screen TV, artfully concealed behind an antique door.

The Red Room: The master bedroom is found on the first floor and offers a wonderful view across the garden and the Umbrian hills. The colours of the Moroccan rug rhyme with the red king size bed from Minotti, and the curtains are made from fine Indian cotton. The en-suite bathroom is modern and chic, containing a double shower, bidet and WC.

The Blue Room: This fantastic bedroom is set on the garden level, and echoes the spirit of the Aeolian islands with deep blues and a range of rich textiles that pair beautifully with the cool white walls and cotto floor. The room contains a king-size bed and en-suite bathroom with double shower and antique marble sink. Better yet, you get a superb view of the lovely garden!

The Yellow Room: Accessed from the garden, guests will walk down a broad stone set of stairs into wonderful oasis - a bedroom furnished with a king size bed and bedside tables from Gervasoni. The yellows and greens that adorn the room are complimented by souvenirs found in Laos, Cambodia and Burma. Within the room is a fully equipped shower room. Being able to step out of bed and into the garden is a real treat!

Please note that the unique layout of the property is not suitable for families with small children.

Umbria is the 'green heart of Italy', one of the finest holiday destinations in the whole of Europe. It's a land of pristine rural landscapes, rolling wooded hills, mountains, valleys and, of course, boasts some of the most sublime art and architecture in the world.

Spello, where Villa Giardiniera is found, is only 20 minutes drive from Perugia airport and within a stone's throw away from Assisi, the birthplace of St. Francis. It's a quiet and elegant little town with excellent restaurants famed for the typically robust (and undeniably delicious) Umbrian cuisine, fine wines and raft of historic buildings. Spello is an ideal base from which to discover this beautiful and characterful region of Italy.

Within easy reach are the famous hill towns of Orvieto (with its legendary cathedral), Todi, Città di Castello, Gubbio, Perugia, Spoleto and the highly regarded wine region of Montefalco.
