Hi Lori and James,
I am sorry for the delayed response however after being away for a month it has taken this long to get things somewhat back in order. We would like to thank you both for helping us achieve what has turned out to be a dream vacation. Both villas were wonderful and the people we met connected with both were not only accommodating in whatever needed to be loved after , but personally delightful . We would never for an instant hesitate to return. We have already recommended both villas and you might have already heard from one party.  I am sure we will return and will definitely contact Via Villas of Italy first .
Again many thanks for your advise , and information to all questions it is and was greatly appreciated.

About this Villa

Located in Spello, not far from the famous town of Assisi, this is the latest creation from the owner of Villa Bellini.

Nestled against the town walls, Casa Giardini is situated between the ancient gates of Porta del Mastro and Porta Prato. Built of fine, pink-tinted stone, up to one meter thick in places, the villa is cool in summer, with no need for air conditioning, and warm in winter.

Cooking, living and dining
A light and airy open space; practical and unfussy but pretty and perfectly furnished. On the right, the kitchen and dining area (table for 6-8); to the left a comfortable sofa with old linen and beautiful pillows opposite a flat screen television concealed behind an antique door. The floors are a soft grey resin and the accent colour is green. Chic, cheerful and modern.

The Red Room
The master bedroom is situated on the first floor with a wonderful view on 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. Ensuite bathroom: modern, simple, chic with double shower, bidet and WC.

Blue Room
A bedroom set on the garden level. The spirit of the Aeolian islands echoes in the deep blues and the rich textiles, paired with cool white walls and an old cotto floor. King size bed Ghost from Gervasoni. Ensuite bathroom with double shower and antique marble sink. Beautiful view on the garden.

Yellow Room
From the garden, walk down the broad stone staircase into this oasis: a bedroom furnished with a king size bed from Flou and charming bedside tables from Gervasoni. The yellows and greens dialogue with 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.

Umbria has an excellent climate. Lounging in the open, resting and reading or dining, is one of our greatest holiday pleasures, especially after a long day exploring the region. The house provides the perfect setting. I designed and planted the garden 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 piled with soft pillows, or to spend the evenings enjoying local salami, ham and cheese with a glass of Umbrian wine, around the old table and chairs which I bought in the region's flea markets. The breathtaking view overlooks the Chiona valley. Traffic and noise are distant memories; your eyes see nothing of the modern world - only the Italian landscape at its very best.

Casa Giardini can be combined with Villa Bellina in order to accommodate a larger group of 12 persons.

An in-house cook can be arranged for part or all of your stay by giving four weeks notice.  The cost is 130 euro for preparing the dinner, serving and cleaning the kitchen (about 5 hours work) plus cost of grocery.

Cleaning Fee: 180 Euro to be paid in cash on the premises

Refundable Security Deposit: Euro 500 to be paid upon arrival and refunded upon departure less any unpaid expenses or damages.
