LUXURY with 4 double bedrooms, 2 shower rooms (1 with tub), 1 large sitting/dining room with fire-place, 1 fully fitted kitchen with dish-washer, 1 BBQ area in covered terrace, 1 large terrace + magnificent views plus a beautiful pool with sensational mountain and valley views all around.

Cerro Cottage is a holiday home, owned by an English couple, Ruth and Mike, who are close friends of ours. They are away for much of the year, and, therefore, this beautiful home is available on the holiday rental market when they are not there.

Part of a fortification for the Duke of Spoleto in the 1600s, it is 9 kms from central Spoleto.


Please note that one side of the pool, where you see the rail, there is a steep drop. This means that children must be supervised around the pool at all times.

6 X 3 metres large

1.2 metres deep

With wide sunbathing/lounging space around 2 sides of the pool


From central Spoleto, it takes about 15 minutes to reach this extremely pretty, detached cottage. About 4 miles along a quiet country road, sensationally beautiful countryside tumbling below, as you gently meander skywards, you reach a plateau on the hill-side. Turn left and follow an easily driveable country track for a further mile, along a mountain ridge that joins the tiny hamlet to the “mainland” and skirts a deep valley of vineyards, poppy fields and olive groves between the 2 points.

In a fairy tale hamlet, consisting of just a few other abodes, Cerro Cottage stands alone, all its windows and its large terrace looking out onto yellow seas of sunflowers, illuminating the hill sides with their candescent shimmer, and blood red oceans of poppies that daub the land in vibrancy and drama. On the other side of the vast chasm, the road from whence you came continues to wend its way to the top of purple tipped mountains that soar above the valleys, stretching towards the blinding, deep blue heavens, while casting sun drenched reflections amidst the rippling grasses and searing the landscape with heat and beauty. Enveloped by sun, colour and mesmeric views, embedded in a golden tapestry, as far as the eye can see, this is all “yours” for the duration of your stay.

Assisi, Gubbio, Todi, Orvieto, Trevi, Montefalco, Bevagna, Spello, Perugia are all just a hop, skip and a jump away. Rome is about 1 hr 15 mins by car or 1hr 20 mins by train from Spoleto train station.


Stepping from the blinding splendour of this quintessentially Umbrian world, into this magnificent stone cottage, you enter a state of tranquillity and elegance. A magnificent sitting room and dining area beckons your senses to take a break and to be calm in the cool interior.

The furnishings are up-market, comfortable and practical, all designed to enable easy living!

Up 5 shallow steps is the fully fitted kitchen with work surfaces, a dish washer and all the usual gizmos.

On the ground floor, directly off the sitting/dining room is a double bedroom.

Directly off the kitchen is a study and a shower room.

From the kitchen, up a sturdy spiral staircase, is a corridor, which opens onto 3 more double bedrooms, one of which contains only a sofa bed, so that it can be used as a 2nd sitting room or a double bedroom. On this floor is a 2nd shower room with a tub. One of the double bedrooms, the “bed-sitting” room and the bathroom are all on the flat. The 2nd double bedroom on this floor is down 5 steps.

All the windows have spell-blinding views.

The cottage is fully equipped as a home rather than as a holiday rental. So, staying in this house, you will want for nothing. Indeed, this is the closest to Paradise that anyone could want for.


In the garden are many tempting fruit trees : cherry, plum, apple, fig and pomegranate – all yours for the taking!
