CASA GIARDINO

"Stunning views of the Umbrian countryside"

We stayed at Casa Giardino for a week in July. The location of this house is almost it's everything - I say almost because the house itself and the view are pretty hard to beat. Although in the centre of Spello, and a few minutes walk to many excellent restaurants, Gelaterias and a small but well stocked supermarket, this house offers complete privacy and tranquility. The garden has stunning views of the Umbrian countryside and a small pool to cool off in the midday heat. The house is decorated in great taste and offers privacy to everyone. Each double bedroom with en-suite has its own private access. The living space and kitchen are pleasant spaces and are supplemented by outdoor living area. I cooked dinner on the one evening that we didn't eat out and the kitchen was well stocked with all utensils that I needed and the space for eating for 6 was plentiful. There is also an extra toilet in addition to the en-suite bathrooms which we found handy to have. You do need to be prepared to get tour luggage up a steep hill to the house, as parking is a couple of minutes away, so make sure your bags are wheeled! Andrea, the owner, could not have been more helpful. Check in was easy and welcoming and she spent a considerable amount of time on the phone on out behalf sorting out a car hire issue that we had. Throughout our stay Andrea was on the end of the phone offering restaurant suggestions and advice on places to visit. Assisi is within 15 minutes drive and Spoleto 30 minutes away. There is a train station just outside the city walls that some of our party we used to take a train back to Rome Fiumicino Airport when going home. Spello is such a beautiful place and we found the novelty of not driving so persuasive that we stayed within the town for most of our trip.

CASA GIARDINO

"The most charming villa we have rented so far"

Casa Giardino is the most charming villa we have rented so far. We loved everything, the decoration, the location, the views and last but not least the garden and pool. Spello is beautiful and we loved discover the many little shops and trattorias. The food is excellent and compared to Tuscany much cheaper. It is our first time in Umbria and we will definitely come back, this region has so much to offer and Spello is still unspoiled and the most beautiful village. We loved also the flea market in Pissignano (1st Sunday every month) and our days trips to Montefalco, Bevagna, Spoleto, Assisi and Perugia.

"Our own private oasis"

Casa Giardino our own private oasis - we enjoyed very much ourselves in Umbria. Casa Giardino is perfect, it's the first time have stayed within a hill town and we loved it. We are so close to the town and its restaurants and shops and yes the garden and pool are so quiet. We visited Perugia and Assisi but to be honest Spello is the most beautiful village in our opinion.

"Unique experience!"

Beautiful setting in an authentic and attractive village with super good restaurants and wine bars. The house is decorated with much love and very comfortable. Because of the heat, we used the air conditioning in the bedrooms at night. The pool is small, but fine for us with our children aged 1, 6 and 9 years. Andrea is very hospitable and likes to help with tips and reservations. For us an unique experience that we remember with great pleasure!

"Breathtaking Villa + views!"

It's not easy to find a place to start when talking about Spello or Buonanotte Barbanera. First, the property is absolutely breathtaking. Each space from the master bedroom to the kitchen have each detail finely attended to. It feels more like home than a vacation space. Second, the views and surrounding village make you feel like you're in a book, nothing compares to the scenery, quaint cobblestone streets and lovely people. Lastly, you will not want to leave. After seven days of staying in Spello and visiting surrounding cities, we set off for Firenze. As we took our last drive (of the trip) down the hillside, I feel like I left a little piece of myself in Spello. As for the technical details - the villa and garden house slept our family of 9 comfortably, we didn't need to use the yellow room. Nabil, the chef which was arranged for us, provided two delicious dinners during our stay. We had a welcome basket of delicious fruits. Cleaning service was provided daily (week days). On Thanksgiving, Nabil made a delicious traditional Italian dinner which we ate on a beautifully set table by our host and owner, Andrea. Each place setting was complete with a gift for each guest! The town is within walking distance of the villa - coffee, grocery, restaurants, gelato and more! We are looking forward to our next visit in July where we can enjoy warmer weather and the pool. I've always traveled to the more touristic destinations but after this trip I will always look for the road less traveled. Do yourself a favor and do not miss out on Spello and Buonanotte Barbanera on your next vacation!

"Beautiful stay in Spello"

This is a wonderful option if you're looking to rent a house in Spello. The house itself is beautiful and the location is really great. It feels secluded and is quiet but is also very close walking distance to the restaurants and shops of Spello--very convenient! It is extremely clean and tidy and when you rent the house it includes daily professional cleaning (bedrooms made up and bathrooms cleaned), as if you were in a hotel. Andrea, the owner, is great and attentive and really wanted to do everything she could to make sure we had a perfect stay. We were a group of 6 and had more than enough space. I would definitely recommend staying here!

"Amazing stay!"

We had the most relaxing and enjoyable stay at Buonanotte Barbanera! It was truly magnificent. The house is simply gorgeous, the attention to detail is quite something. It's obvious that every part of the home has been carefully thought of to ensure that guests have the most comfortable and pleasant stay. Andre's kindness and hospitality was remarkable. I look forward to visiting Spello again, only for the pleasure of staying at such a great house. Spello, of course is beautiful. The shops are quaint and the town so pretty, with friendly locals and delicious food. I look forward to going back, and in the meantime will miss the peace and tranquility of what it had to offer.

BUONANOTTE BARBANERA

"Wonderful! Beautiful! Thoughtful host! A perfect home base!"

We rented Villa Buonanotte Barbanera for the week of October 10th through 17th for a family vacation. 3 couples, mother and father and their two 20's daughters with finance and boyfriend. The setting is gorgeous. Imagine your dream of a house in Italy - ancient stone, a fresco, places to lounge, a well equipped kitchen, the feeling of complete serenity and privacy yet less than a 5 minute walk to the small town center - that's Buonanotte Barbanera and more. Andrea, the owner and host is warm and accommodating and knows everyone in town and surrounding areas and is a fountain of great suggestions and inside tips. The house includes daily maid service which is a gigantic plus. SO nice to return each day to a tidy house, remade beds, cleaned bathrooms and kitchen - even new linens on the table each day and cookware put away. What a treat and unusual plus in a weekly rental. The master bedroom is huge, light and airy with a beautiful bathroom. the upstairs bedroom in the house is also very large though the area of the bed has a lower ceiling, perhaps 5'10 or 11", so best if the tallest person doesn't stay there. Also en-suite bathroom. The third bedroom is entered from the garden so it feels like a separate cottage. It is the smallest but has old vaulted arches and is charming. the bathroom is also en-suite but has more of partition walls so best for a couple that is very close :-). This bedroom does not have a window but the screened door can remain closed while the heavy wooden outer door is open. The pool looked lovely but was understandably being closed down for the winter (it did get chilly in the mornings and evenings when we were there. We so enjoyed cooking in the kitchen - we had everything we could ask for and more. Hanging out in the living room was so much fun, as a group, we never even made it to the upper lounge area. Even in the rain, we could eat outside on the covered patio/dining area. Spello is charming. Better prices on ceramics than Deruta and more finely detailed. Some good restaurants (trust Andrea's recommendations), nice markets and nice shops. Best of all, enjoy the walks throughout Spello. Interesting neighboring towns are a very short drive away. Buonanotte Barbanera quickly feels like a dream home and Andrea like a good friend.

"This place is so special!"

We have had a wonderful week here in Andrea’s beautiful and comfortable house. The views are spectacular - my kid have said several times that they almost feel unreal or as it in a movie - so beautiful and picturesque.
We loved the pool and spent a lot of time enjoying the garden and the way Andrea has created an outdoor living space to enjoy “La dolce vita”.
Andrea’s hospitality, warmth and efforts make us feel at home! This place is so special!

"The house is a perfect retreat: a calming and colorful bundle of joy"

It was 3 years since our last real family holiday and we couldn’t have wished for a better stay.
What a little gem Spello is!
The house is a perfect retreat: a calming and colorful bundle of joy while at the same time a perfect spot for relaxing, reading and cooling down.
Just a step or 2 away from the picturesque center with all the divine wine and rich food and yet you also have the feeling of being away from all the hustle and bustle.
We will definitely return here.
Thanks Andrea for your great hospitality!
