Spoleto and Terrazza Bella are treasures
There is so much to like about Terrazza Bella in Spoleto, Umbria, Italy. The apartment is plenty big for two to four people and is lovely and comfortable. The kitchen area is roomy. There is lots of light in every room, and there are French doors that open onto the terrazza, which is definitely bellissima! Yes, the terrazza is spacious, tranquil, and somewhat private, with well-kept plants and flowers all around. And the view to the hills is both beautiful and calming. On the other side of the apartment, the balcony looks out over the lively Via Porta della Fuga, yet the triple-glazed window-doors keep out the noise from the crowds enjoying the night life below. The location of the apartment is really ideal: within a 20 minute walk to the train station; close to the moving sidewalks and escalators will take you to the top of the city if you don’t care to walk the steep streets; a short walk to several grocery stores; minutes away from many restaurants, bars, stores, butchers, fruit and vegetable markets, and banks.
As for Spoleto, it is a perfect home base for exploring Umbria. We took easy train rides to a day each in Assisi, Perugia, and Spello, and rented a car at very reasonable rates to drive to towns and sites not accessible by train. We definitely recommend visiting Norcia, Bevagna, Montefalco, and the Cascata delle Marmore, in nearby Terni. But there is plenty to see and do and eat in Spoleto itself, which is a lively, cultural, and friendly small city. The Spoleto card offers an economical way to visit museums, the Fortezza, the Roman amphitheater, and many other historical treasures. Among our favorite restaurants were Il Tempio del Gusto, Cava Truffles and Bubbles, Osteria del Matto, and Novecento. Caffe degli Artisti in the Piazza del Mercato is a great place to start the day with a cappuccino, pastry, and free wifi.
We loved our time in Terrazza Bella and have just one complaint. The wifi was inconsistent, sometimes weak, and sometimes nonexistent. If your cell phone works in Italy and has data services, you won’t be bothered. Norma and Laurie provide an extensive list of restaurant recommendations, and Laurie picked us up at the station, and gave us a great tour of the immediate area and introductions to local restaurant owners. Parking was available behind the building.
Thank you for your kind words. We do our very best at all times because we love being able to offer our guests the perfect holiday.
We are sorry about your WiFi problems. I wonder if you drew our attention to it at the time because usually it is something very simple that we can fix immediately eg the router needs rebooting. As a rule, we have no problems with the internet, except on rare occasions, when the provider is experiencing problems. And, if a problem persists after we have rebooted the router, tried our own computers in the "offending" apartment and checked that there is no problem with the provider, then, we call in a techie. Unless it is a Sunday, a serious problem would be fixed within hours, given all the above caveats. And, in the case of a dire emergency, if/when you could not wait a few hours for it to be fixed, either you can use a "hot spot" somewhere else in the Rocca Dei Perugini, where we have several providers, or, you can sit in one of the bars opposite, where they offer WiFi, free of charge.
I would like to add that with all 17 of our central Spoleto apartments, the full-time use of our large private pool at Villa Marianna, 7 miles away, is included in the rate. And, several of our luxury apartments in central Spoleto as well as many of our country properties, most with pools, have air-con and dish-washers. In addition, we can arrange a whole host of activities from wine tasting, oil tasting, truffle hunting to eating in a chef's home and cookery lessons......all at rates much cheaper than the specialist businesses, who are dependent on these services for their livelihoods. We regard such services as "add ons" to our core business of holiday rentals.
Great Home Base
We were two couples travelling together and spent four nights at Terazza Bella after a weeklong stay in Perugia. Laurie met us at the Conrad shopping plaza as prearranged, and we followed him to the apartment located in the lower part of town, just inside the walls, and a short walk from Piazza Garibaldi. In the square, you will find ATM machines, restaurants and a wonderful bakery. As well, there are several large grocery stores nearby, one is within walking distance.
The apartment was well equipped and adequately furnished. One bedroom had double beds and the other twin. It is located along a pedestrian only street which made weekend evenings very noisy even with the windows closed however, the weeknights were quiet. Since the apartment is located in the lower portion of Spoleto, and most of the sites are located in the upper area, we were faced with quite the hike each day, but there is a moving sidewalk nearby that travels to the upper portion and it’s free. Laurie showed us were the sidewalk was located as there is no signage – we took the sidewalk up, saving considerable effort and walked down. The sidewalk closes at 9:00pm. It takes about 15 minutes to get to the top and one can get off at various points.
It is worthwhile to purchase the Spoleto card for 8Euro, it is good for a week and if one wishes to visit all the sites, it would total 40Euro. We also booked the onsite parking and only drove when we wished to visit the countryside. Try to avoid driving and parking in Upper Spoleto, while we were at the Tourist Bureau, we overheard that a couple was facing a 90Euro infraction fee for taking their car into the square. As an aside, it is worthwhile to visit the Tourist Info Centre. It is equipped with informative brochures and suggested walks. Try to spend an evening strolling around the Rocco with all the locals, viewing the Pointe delle Torri all lit up and then stopping at the bar just outside the Rocco for a drink in the evening – the views are outstanding.
Overall our stay was comfortable. We enjoyed eating our meals on the balcony and returning to the apartment for afternoon siestas, or just to regroup before continuing the day’s adventures.
Terrazza Bella, with WiFi throughout, is located in the buzziest part of town, in a pedestrian area known as "il borgo" ie "the village". The travellator is just 2 mins walk : moving walkways, escalators and elevators connect all parts of Spoleto with dropping off points wherever you want to go.
Spoleto is a traffic free city. And, especially between May and October, festivals and concerts take place in various parts of this tiny city. Maybe our reviewers stayed with us during the wine festival, when there is "a white night", where the shops, bars and restaurants never close, life continues for 24 hours and, the streets are abuzz with revellers !
We have 17 central Spoleto apartments, some in quiet alleyways, behind the Duomo, where the only sounds you hear are of the swifts, the swallows and the cathedral bells tolling the time of the day.
Other apartments, eg Terrazza Bella, are in the midst of it all. And, to this end, they are triple glazed. The reviewers talk about hearing noise, “even with the windows closed”. The triple glazing is in both the windows and external glass doors. When you close the windows and the doors, you can hear a pin drop, such is the quietness in Terrazza Bella, even when the carnival is full on.
However, some guests do not like to shut themselves up in order to have peace and quiet. To this end, I recommend you ask for an apartment in a quiet location. Although, it is hard to guarantee total peace in a tiny city, where fun is the name of the game, there is a restaurant at every twist and turn of the cobbled arched streets and the atmosphere is relaxed and mellow. Indeed, total peace is hard to come by anywhere, In the countryside, you have logging machines, dogs barking, roosters crowing and combine harvesters droning.
If peace is high on your agenda, ask for triple glazing ! Terrazza Bella has it !
Very well located
Terrazza Bella has a really good location in Spoleto - really close to the "escalator" to take you up the hill to the Rocca and Sacred Hills and on the main street where the locals walk for their early evening promenade. But the flat was extremely quiet and peaceful even though central. Everything we needed was in the flat including English channels on the TV. The heating and hot water were very efficient and the landlord very helpful - he even picked us up and dropped us off at the railway station. I highly recommend Spoleto as a town to visit - it was even nicer than I expected and wonderful if you like history. I also recommend Terrazza Bella as a place to stay.
Perfect place, in a Fabulous town!
We spent 8 wonderful days in this well-appointed apartment, on the 4th floor of a historic building. Loved the open plan kitchen/living area, with big doors onto the plant-rich patio; golden light and a warm, indoor/outdoor feel. This is a remarkably private and secure place, given that it's in a very busy town. Double glazing means you can shut out sounds from the pedestrian street far below; but for us that was part of being there. Also, it's all so easy thanks to the private parking space (by arrangement) plus elevator. Norma and Laurie are such generous hosts: they will do anything they can to make your stay perfect! But the location really makes it. We loved just walking out in any direction: to a cafe or restaurant, to participate in the passeggiata, to see the wonderful buildings and sights there are in Spoleto... we spent more days in town than planned, simply because we loved 'living in Spoleto', and the apartment makes you feel as if you do. We look forward to returning!
(this is a copy of my trip advisor review - decided it should be on homeaway too!)
We try hard to make our guests' holidays the best. To this end, we offer about 17 central Spoleto apartments, all in excellent locations.
It is a particular delight to us when our guests express their enthusiasm as these guests have done. We very much welcome back our happy guests again. And, we always offer our "returnee" guests a special "mate rate", as well as their friends, if they mention the guest's name, who referred them !!
Tolle Ferienwohnung mit italienischem Flair
Wir haben zu dritt in Bella Due gelebt - ausreichend Platz für alle. Zwei Schlafzimmer, ein Bad, ein Flur mit Küche, ein wirklich großes Wohnzimmer, zwei Balkone zum draußen sitzen - alles liebevoll und mit Geschmack eingerichtet. Wir haben kein Auto - Laurie hat uns mit dem ganzen Koffern vom Bahnhof abgeholt und wieder dort hingebracht (zu Fuß sind es ca. 10 Minuten - ohne Gepack). Die Wohnung ist ein idealer Ausgangspunkt für Erkundungen von Spoleto (wunderbare kleine Stadt, älter als Rom, wie in einem Film), für Wanderungen in den Bergen (zB auf den Monteluco, auf den Spuren von Franziskus), nach Assisi und Perugia, sogar nach Rom...
Einfach wunderbar, eine dicke Empfehlung!
Beautiful Historic Spoleto out your front door
I had the privilege of staying in Terrazza Bella for two months during February and March. The town is quiet this time of year yet there is plenty to do and see in Spoleto and nearby villages and towns. My hosts and owners of the property, Laurie and Norma offered the greatest hospitality from booking to pick upon my arrival until my departure. Laurie even stopped by a grocery store so I could pick up some things before he delivered me to the apartment. They also provided a nice welcome package of olive oil, pasta, wine, coffee, tea etc. During my stay he was a phone call away if needed. The apartment with two bedrooms was spacious, light, comfortable and had a fully equipped kitchen with everything necessary to prepare full meals. There is a lovely terrace off the main living area and a balcony overlooking the pedestrian street off the two bedrooms. The apartment is comfortable for up to 4 persons. There was plenty of room for family that came to stay. Laurie was more than helpful and gracious to pick up family members when they arrived. The train is only a 10 minute walk but with luggage this was a really appreciated service. The location of the apartment with it's close proximity to the train station makes it an ideal location for exploring other lovely Umbrian towns. Assisi was less than 45 minutes by train, It was a favorite destination. Orvieto, Perugia and other lovely towns and cities are easily accessible. Rome is only an hour and half by train. Norcia and Montefalco are great day trips by bus. Beautiful historic Spoleto is enough in itself. It is an extraordinary place and there is more than enough to see and do. There are Roman sites and beautiful churches. The walk up to the top of town, to the Rocca and Ponte delle Torri is worth every step. There is a mobile stairway to get you to the top without the strenuous climb, but if you are able, walking up the narrow streets and past the shops enjoying the sights along the way is worth the effort. The view from the top of the town is amazing and it is a great place to sit and soak in the beauty. Hiking the via Francesco up to Monteluco and visiting the little church of San Francesco was a highlight. I highly recommend a visit to Spoleto. The food is delicious the people are warm, friendly and welcoming. If you stay at Terrazza Bella or any one of Norma and Laurie's properties you will have a home away from home and enjoy every minute. I cannot wait to return.
