Appartamento Olmo

Appartamento Olmo is a lovely vacation cottage with view on Spoleto in the South of Umbria. The holiday apartment is a cosy home for maximum 3 guests, well located to explore the wineproducing area around Montefalco and Spoleto is a lively little town with many shops and restaurants.

"It absolutely exceeded our expectations. The view and the hosts hospitality. Anyone who wants to be close to Spoleto with a stunning view this is the place."

The cottage has a private terrace with nice views and some trees and bushes around, making it a lovely enclosed space with good privacy. The owners live on the grounds as well, but their house is on the other side of the cottage, leaving the terrace private. The owners also run a B&B in a beautiful building towards the entrance of the premises. Guests are welcome to use the pool, which is also used by the guests of the B&B.

The pool, 12m by 6m and 1.40m deep, is situated next to the B&B near the entrance to the premises. Behind it the owner has olive yards and amongst the olive trees donkeys walk around. The pool is fenced by a thick hedge and two gates that can be closed.

Anybody interested in yoga, stress relieving treatments and other alternative relaxing body therapies could take some classes at this ecological holiday villa. This is not included in the price. Read our blog post to know a bit more about this.

Dear Saskia and Sylvia,

thank you very much for your mediation of the vacation rental.

We enjoyed our holiday in the cottage Olmo. It exceeded all our expectations. The cottage is spacious, there is a good bed (finally!) and a pleasant shower. The interior is cosy. We've spent two cold nights inside the cottage at the fireplace but there was plenty of fire wood. Privacy is guaranteed, als on the lovely shady terrace. The view from here is stunning. We cannot mention any issue about the cottage. Maybe because the owner onze lived in the apartment herself? Everything was perfectly maintained. The cottage, the interior, the towels. the property, the garden ecc. And all this together was a real fine experience! We would love to come back.

Dear Saskia and Sylvia,

yes we had a beautiful time at Appartamento Olmo. It absolutely exceeded our expectations. The view and the hosts hospitality. Being Yoga teachers we were even surprised to find a Yoga studio on the property. We managed to have a dip in the pool, delight in the donkeys and to walk the country roads. Anyone who wants to be close to Spoleto with a stunning view this is the place.

With warm regards Rachel and John


Hello Saskia and Sylvia,

Yesterday we arrived home from our holiday at apartment Olmo in Spoleto. We had a very good time. Beautiful surroundings, good weather and the apartment was cosy: breakfast with view, luxury swimming pool voor the both of us!

Bye, Bert Holland

Dear Saskia and Sylvia,

We love Umbria. The website is beautiful, the route description excellent, the extra information about Umbria is useful. The apartment was comfortable, clean and a nice terrace with view. We liked the barbecue where we could grill some meat. Also the swimming pool in the beautiful garden we enjoyed a lot. We got some good tips for walking tracks and restaurants from Elisabettta. We will surely recommend your website to others.

Best regards, Margriet Holland

Hello Saskia and Sylvia,

We really enjoyed apartment Olmo in Umbria. Beautiful position, privacy, romantic apartment with stone walls and wooden beams. It is possible to light the fire in the evening, which creates a romantic atmosphere. From the terrace there is a beautiful view. It was 25 degrees in October, we still could swim in the pool! The position is perfect to visit other places in Umbria: Assisi, Perugia, Spello, Spoleto, Montefalco and the Marmore Falls. We recommend anyone a holiday in Umbria who has the love and passion for culture, good (slow) food, wine drinking and relaxing. By the way, the olive oil we bought from Elisabetta is excellent!

Greetings, Daphne and Alessio Italy


Our stay was excellent. Everything about the accommodation was first class. Please pass on our thanks to Elizabeth for being an excellent host.

Best Regards

Dear Willemijn and Saskia,

We really liked Appartamento Olmo. In real life it is much nicer than the pictures on your website. Beautiful position and very tranquil, lots of privacy which was fully respected by Elisabetta, the owner. The apartment itself is nicely furnished and cosy, one immediately feels at home. In case of cold weather you can light the fire, which we did (we were there in May). The terrace is wonderful, the garden surrounding the apartment also.

The only remark we can think of is that the kitchen is rather small and not very well equipped. We really missed wine glasses!

The pool is really wonderful and the olive grove with grazing donkeys completes the image.

We would certainly return to this apartment and can recommend it.

I hope this feedback has been of use.

Best wishes, Astrid - Belgium

The booking deposit is 30% of the rental sum and the balance should be paid a month before arrival.  The owners ask a security deposit of Eur 150.

In Italy the tourism tax has been introduced. Each town can decide independently whether to apply this tax. It is important to keep in mind that the prices on our website do NOT include the tourism tax. Where we received confirmation from house owners that they have to ask for this tax, it is written underneath the price table.

Villa in Umbria is an intermediary and as such rents out holiday homes and apartments on behalf of their owners. When you book we will be sending an agreement in which you will find the bank details for the down payment and the final payment.

We know each vacation rental personally and also the owners of all the holiday rentals we have in our portfolio.
