Palazzo Spello

Luxury and spacious holiday rental in the centre of Spello, one of the jewels of Umbria's rich history. Staying in this holiday home means being part of Italian village life: have a cappuccino at the local bar in the morning, get your bread at the local bakery and have dinner in one of several restaurants in Spello.

"The apartment is spacious and we loved the terrace and garden. The views are outstanding, despite the fact that you are in the city centre of Spello."

Spello is a fantastic medieval town to stay and enjoy the best of Italy. Set in the middle of old olive groves, looking over the fertile valley, Spello is culturally rich and breathes an unforgettable atmosphere.

The Spello rental is on the ground floor in the centre, with a large terrace and beyond it a lovely flowering garden filled with antique roses and a few shady trees. The vacation rental is filled with light, accentuating its space and the ancient vaulted ceilings. It can sleep 2 + 2 guests in 75 square meters. The ancient walls are thick and keep the temperature inside cool in summer and warm in winter.

Spello is built against the 'Monte Subasio', surrounded by age old olive groves. The valley Spello looks down on, starts at Assisi and ends at Spoleto. A better area is difficult to find for somebody interested in culture, nature and Italian cuisine. Spello itself has many churches, museums and a well preserved medieval centre, less known than Assisi but apart from famous churches, Spello offers at least as much.

The 25 meter swimming pool of Spello is situated on 1 km from this Spello accommodation. An easy walk for those wishing to refresh themselves on a warm summer day. This public pool is usualy open from around half June to early September.

The Palazzo Spello can be a good choice if you are traveling by train, without a car. The railwaystation is at 10 minutes walking.

Hello Sylvia en Saskia, we're back home.

After some lovely days with friends at the Bolsena Lake and a 2-days stop in Siena, we arrived with high expectations in Spello.
And ..... we had a great time.

The reception by Monia was just fine, the house is marvelous and the garden with terrace make it complete. The house was clean, everything funcioned well, there was enough light, the bed is good, the shower is warm... good work! And Spello itself is a lovely little town!

We just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic holiday.

Best regards from Ike and Janwillem (Holland)


Hello Saskia and Sylvia,

We very much enjoyed our holiday in Umbria and Palazzo Spello. Upon our arrival we got a warm welcome. The apartment is spacious and we loved the terrace and garden. The views are outstanding, nonetheless you are in the city centre of Spello. After a couple of days we had some problems with the heating, but after sending a sms, Monia came directly to solve the problem. That was fine! Spello is authentic and interesting. Worth a visit. There are many restaurants in the centre where you can eat well! We made nice walks from Spello to Assisi, and to the small village Collepino. In short: recommended! This is the second time that we booked a holiday through the Villa in Umbria website, we have no complaints at all. You are doing a good job. Thank you again for everything.

We liked our time in Umbria. Spello is a wonderful town and we had a great holiday in Palazzo Spello. In particular, we enjoyed the lovely terrace and garden. Signor Bagliani was really friendly, even showed us his fine motobike collection. Thank you very much! Even though my knowledge of Italian is limited, we understood each other very well.

In the past we have been several times in Italy, but this was the first "villa in Umbria" house. We are satisfied with the service and we also can recommend you to our friends

Best regards, Elsa from Finland

Beautiful, clean, benevolent. Good inventory, good beds. Friendly and helpful owner, mr. Bagliani. Lots of information about Spello and surroundings, maps to go for a walking or hiking. Wifi worked fine (don’t forget to ask when arriving because something needs to be activated!) A wonderful city apartment on a good spot in Spello (you may have some noice from neighbours and passers by but that’s inevitable in the midst of town). A good starting point to also visit the surrounding area.

Hello Willemijn and Saskia, hereby our feedback:

Our luxury apartment with big garden, Palazzo Spello, was wonderful, in the middle of the medieval village of Spello. Nice shops, contact with the locals, we did a very good cooking course in our apartment and we really cycled a lot up and down the hills. We had lovely meals and tasted great wines …. yet we lost weight because of the hilly cycling. The best experience of all however was booking through Villa in Umbria, very personal. To be repeated.

Best wishes, Pim

Hello Willemijn and Saskia,

We have had a very good time in Spello, loved being in the centre of town. The first weekend was the infiorata and the second the Oleo-gastronomia, so we really felt to be a part of the town and we took part in the Italian live. Had we been in the county side, we would have missed this. The apartment is beautiful in a lovely town. With some more attention from the owners (a bottle of wine upon arrival, making sure all things are in good working order) this is an excellent place to reside. We also enjoyed meeting you. We hope this info is of help to you and in case you do add it online, then only write the positive because that is what we remember when we think back on our Spello holiday.

Best wishes from Wateringen, Peter and Wil

From 2011:

Palazzo Spello is an extremely pleasant and well appointed town house. Benefitting too from a large terrace and garden area in the heart of one of the nicest Umbrian hilltop towns,it allows the visitor to experience life like a local. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Palazzo Spello to anybody who loves Italy. A.G.

Hello Saskia and Willemijn

Our holiday in Umbria was a real success, lovely weather and beautiful surroundings. The apartment was perfect, spacious fresh and with a beautiful garden and terrace. Spello is very attractive and has surprisingly much to offer. The owner was also friendly and gave us good advice about things to see and do.

We had small problem with the dishwasher. The moment we found out what was causing it the electricity came back and that was the most important.

We should have asked for more information at the Spello Tourist info, we saw the final day they had more information behind the counter, not on display.

Best wishes, Annemiek

From 2010:

Dear miss,

We were very content about townhouse Spello which remained pleasantly cool in the heat. We loved the garden. I also would like to compliment you on your great service, speedy response and friendly communication.

Kind regards, A. N.

Hello Saskia and Willemijn,

We stayed two weeks in cassa spello. We had chosen this place because being in a village it enabled us to go to the baker, restaurant and kiosk on foot. Spello is a pretty and clean village with friendly inhabitants, many restaurants in all price classes and shops. Since it is a medieval village the house sport very thick walls which keep it cool in summer. The terrace and garden are very pretty and one can always find a shady or sunny place. The house itself is rather large, it is no standard holiday cottage. It clearly is a romantic Italian house with multiple spacious high rooms. Once you have fallen for its charm small inconveniences are easily forgotten. We also liked the garage we had rented. Had a very good time.

Best wishes, M. and P.S.

Off course we would like to give feedback.

Great choice! For this holiday we decided we did not want to stay in a house in nowhere land on top of a mountain but wanted something where we easily could get a drink in the evenings while not having to deal with hordes of tourists. The apartment is situated in a great spot inside the town walls of old Spello. The garden is delightful, spacious and the fig trees bore big ripe figs when we were there. The owner is incredibly helpful and kind. When our laptop decided it didn't want to communicate with the wireless internet, the owner (easy to get hold of by phone) lend us a laptop just like that! Try to find that in other places. Very complete house, good bed and ample kitchen with dishwasher.

Spello is Spello, incredibly beautiful even to Italian standards. Tranquile but not to much with enough bars and good restaurants at walking/crawling distance and two pools closeby (the swimming pool of Spello at a few minutes walking distance and the 50 metres one near Assisi, with its splendid location on the mountain at a few minutes by car) We stayed for a week and time flew by way to fast.

Regards, L. and B.

From 2009:

Dear Saskia and Willemijn,

We had a very good time in Spello. The owners are very helpful and friendly. Really an address to remember. Thank you for finding it for us.

Best regards, Riet

Dear Saskia and Willemijn,

Our stay in the Casa Spello has been very satisfying. Even for italian standards, Spello is of a particular beauty and staying at the Casa Spello gave us a good opportunity to explore and enjoy the town. Very attractive is the closeness of cities like Perugia and Assisi and at the same time the open country side of Umbria. The train station is easy to reach. The house is spacious, well equipped and situated in the centre of town.

We wish you succes with you business and thank you very much for organising this holiday for us.

Regards, Jurgen


We were in Spello, and it was SUPERB! Often pictures on websites are very overdone, in this case it was the contrary. If we decide to return to Umbria (or better: when we retrun to Umbria), it won't be hard to choose our accomodation. WE have recommended the house to several friends already.

With kind regards, Monique & Bram

Dear Saskia and Willemijn,

We had a lovely week in the down town apartment in Spello. The contact with owner Sig. Bagliani was good and inspiring. Something to think about, though not meant as criticism: The owners have a very busy life and surely not the time to check out the whole house before every arrival. After cleaning the house some defects may not be seen. There was a mixer that did not function. No problem at all for us, but better to simply throw it out. The toilet cover needed to be fixed. We had wanted to tell the owner ourselves, but got lost every time in interesting and inspiring conversations. Again: the small defects did not in any way disturb our joy in staying at Casa Spello.

Regards, Hans

Dear Saskia / Willemijn,

We very much enjoyed staying in Spello: what a lovely village! I have no comments about the house: spacious, fresh even on hot days, nice private terrace in a lovely garden. If I do have to give a negative comment: the sofa smelled of wet dog!

With regards, Willem

Comment owner: the sofa will be professionally cleaned during winter season.

Dear Saskia and Willemijn,

We very much enjoyed our stay in Casa Spello.

We do have a few comments, though:

Upon arrival the first thing we did was cleaning the house. We are not particularly clean and neat, but the house really was not clean. We immediately mentioned it to the owner who was extremely friendly.

IN the fridge were still the remains of the recent inhabitants. We completely cleaned it. The cupboards in the kitchen were really dirty. We washed up what we needed and left it outside the cupboards. Like was mentioned in the past the bin was really to dirty to touch. We cleaned the shower for about an hour. It was clear that it hadn't been cleaned for a while. We did not pay the extra for the cleaning. The owner didn't ask for it either.

This all sounds very negative, but we also had a very good time in "our little house". We just hope this information can be helpful to you and any future guests.

With kind regards, Saskia

Comment owner: he has instructed the cleaning lady to better do her job.


We have been home one week now and stayed in Spello. What a wonderful week we had! In a wonderful location: neat, spacious and centrally located. Everything was perfect. The owner is a friendly man and has very interesting travel tips for his guests.

Thank you, this was worth repeating!

Lieve and Rob

From before 2009:

Hi Saskia and Willemijn,

the holiday-appartment in Spello is spaciously laid out, with a central hall, a big living room, a middle room, bedroom and a kitchen. It borders on a big terrace with an indoor garden were it is very serene and great to while away some time. If the bustle of the village slips from ones mind.

Not that it is that busy in Spello. It is a very old, pretty village situated on a hill so one is always climbing or descending during a walk. Lots of little streets and alleys with brick paving and no cars because they simply aren't able to squeeze there way around. There are soms streets where cars can pass and where they do so but it remains fairly quiet. The village is visited by a lot of tourists but most of them have left come evening.

You are not allowed to park your car in front of the apartment but there is ample parking space just outside the village, a few minutes by foot. You can park the car in front to offload your luggage. That is rather convenient. You get easily used to the fact that the car is parked a bit further along.

The house is luxuriously decorated and provides all necessary amenities. The owner is very kind and helpful. He lives in the village as well, a couple of houses from the appartment, his garden adjacens the one of the appartment but he is rarely spotted. Only when one needs him.

Spello is favourably located, in an area where there is a lot to see and do. The only drawback we encountered was the weather The last two weeks of May 2008 we encountered quite a bit of rain and it wasn't all that warm. fortunately we also had a few nice days. The nadir was our excursion to Rome were it didn't so much rain as came pouring down the whole day. We were soaked!

Nevertheless Casa Spello is warmly recommended.

Anita & Peter

Dear mrs.

The Umbria part of our holiday was very enjoyable. The house in Spello as offered by you is very attractive. A special place. The owner, a doctor is very attentive and maintains an agreeable distance, you barely notice he lives in the back garden. Wireless network is provided, wonderful. If you happen to hear from him please greet him from us as we didn't have the opportunity because we left early.

Regards from a wet Belgium, Ward

Good evening Willemijn,

We had a wonderful holiday in Spello, our compliments for the lovely address.

Kind regards, Tinus

Hello Willemijn and Saskia,

We really liked the house in Spello. Ample (storage)space and a nice garden. Nice owner who had some tips regarding the surrounding area.

A few minor details: the cleaning of the house, especially the kitchen should be done more thoroughly. The fridge was filthy on the inside and i cleaned it myself before dared placing my own stuff inside. The cupboard with the built-in waste-paper basket was also dirty.

Furthermore the use of carpet in a rented house isn't very  practical: difficult to clean.

A very small detail: when you come home at night it is quite dark in the alley wich makes that you have to grope for the lock. I did see a lamp above the door, but was not able to find out how to put it on (maybe broken?).

Besides that I had a lovely holiday!

Kind regards, Maaike

Note Villa in Umbria: the owner says he and his wife are always taking care of the cleaning in depth. They regret the guests did not mention anything while there because they would have taken care of any problem immediately, as they always do. The carpet is being cleaned thoroughly at every change over and regularly it is cleaned professionally. The owners ask any guest to be in touch immediately when they notice something or have a complaint.

Thank you for your sms-message. We regret that we could not say good bye to you. We had to leave early because we were to visit friends in Ostra on our way home. We really enjoyed our stay in Spello. Your accomodation is excellent en leaves hardly any room  for further wishes. We enjoyed it thouroughly.

Best regards, M. 

We have just arrived home this morning.  Once again thank you so much for an excellent job in organising our trip to Spello, especially our wedding which went so very well.  I received all the photos, thank you, and so did my friends and family.  That was great.

Best wishes, Shirley and Ted

Sorry not to write to you earlier but we have been very busy. We had a wonderful holiday at Casa Spello in excellent weather. The apartment was delightful and the terrace and garden made such a difference. The owner was a most friendly and interesting host. He even showed us his collection of motor bikes in the cantina and then took us to his house for coffee and a look around!  Spello was one of the most beautiful small towns we have ever seen. The Roman and Mediaeval architecture, the frescoes and the flowers were wonderful.

One practical point: There is a good supermarket only 400 metres from the Piazza Kennedy on the Foligno road. If we had known this on our way to Spello, it would have been much easier for us than Ipercoop at Collestrada.

Thank you for your help over the past few months.

Best wishes, Judy and Mike

The downpayment is 40% of the rental sum. The balance has to be paid one month before arrival. There is a security deposit of Euro 200.

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.

You can read more about us on the 'About Villa in Umbria' page.
