DETAILED DESCRIPTION :
With WiFi + private shared pool, included in the rate, 7 miles away at our Villa Marianna :
Private car space included in the rate.
A huge luxury apartment with Wifi, 4 double bedrooms (1 of which is a bunk bedroom), 5 sitting rooms, 1 of which is a huge sitting/dining room, 3 of which contain large comfortable and substantive sofabeds, 3 bathrooms, 2 kitchens with dishwasher, washing machine etc + a huge and fabulous terrace with panoramic views + remote control blinds all around.
On the pedestrian street of Corso Mazzini, in the beating heart of the tiny, mediaeval city of Spoleto, occupying the whole of the top floor of a grand palazzo, with dizzily electrifying, panoramic views of turrets, bell towers, spires, domes and mountains, we offer you Terrazza ROYALE Plus!
On the top floor of a palazzo, many steps and no elevator, this luxury apartment is not for those who have mobility issues. However, it being in the very centre of the historic heart of mediaeval, pedestrian Spoleto and close to the entrance to the travellator that connects up the whole of Spoleto, you will find you can access the whole of Spoleto from the top to the bottom or vice versa, easily, even if you are mobility challenged !
The crowning glory of this enormous apartment is its terrace that can seat 12 persons. It has remote blinds that even have side “walls” to increase the privacy for those who do not wish to be “papped”.
This is an extremely large 4 bedroom apartment that can sleep 10 persons.
In addition to the huge sitting/dining room, Terrazza Royale Extra has 4 other living rooms, one, a study with a very comfortable double sofabed, the other, a bed-sitting room with a 2nd fully fitted kitchen…and a comfortable double sofa-bed, and, another sitting room with yet another large substantive sofa-bed plus a medium sized sitting room next to the kitchen, opening onto the terrace.
This is an apartment that you can get lost in ! And, please note that the 3 sitting rooms that contain sofa-beds are private. They each open onto a corridor or into the huge main living/dining room.
ALL 3 of the sofabeds are substantive and very comfortable.
Incredibly artistically decorated, the walls are lined with portraits of Spoleto saints, paintings and lithographs of Spoleto. The owners of Terrazza Royale Plus, a young couple with 2 children and another on the way (July 24, 2016), are direct descendants from the old-guard aristocratic families, who, in a bygone era, ruled and controlled Spoleto with an iron rod. Of course, all that is over now. And, this young couple, both lawyers, work hard and full-time in Bologna for a living. La Royale is their holiday home. And, we are extremely lucky to have them share it with us !
In the midst of shops, bars and restaurants, 5 minutes walk upwards, past the splendid Duomo, a park, restaurants and bars and you are at La Rocca, Spoleto’s grand palace and its crowing glory. 2 minutes further, you are on Il Ponte, the magnificent aqueduct that takes you directly into the Sacred Mountains, following in the footsteps of St Francis of Assisi and Michelangelo.
Walking downwards for 5 minutes through the arched and cobbled lanes, again passing gelaterias, specialist food shops selling fine wines, truffle and cheeses, amazing clothes shops….and you reach the main throbbing shopping area of Corso Garibaldi.
Throughout the city are churches, lined with frescos and ornate statues, piazzas, where you can sit with your aperitivi and people watch and non stop cultural events from sagras to world leading opera, ballet and live theatre, some of it taking place in the old Roman forum, where in days of yore, Christians were thrown to the lions – the cages and chains remain as a reminder of Spoleto’s barbaric and, indeed, aristocratic past.
