See review(s) at end….
11 kms to Spoleto central. Nearest village with all the facilities is Baiano, about 3 kms.
NEWLY RESTORED. OWNED BY ONE OF THE MOST ILLUSTRIOUS FAMILES IN THE AREA – THEY BUILT THE LOCAL CHURCH, 600 YEARS AGO ! HERE YOU EXPERIENCE THE PURE HISTORY OF UMBRIA !
With WiFi, 2 fully fitted kitchens + a large public pool in the country, 5 kms away, with a restaurant. A beautiful walk !
My place is close to art and culture, great views, restaurants and dining, and family-friendly activities. You’ll love my place because of the outdoors space, the neighborhood, the light, the comfy beds, and the 2 kitchens. My place is good for families (with kids), big groups, and furry friends (pets).
Unique rock pool 3 mts by 1 mt, fed from natural fountain in the nearby woods. It is not a clear water pool because the fresh water oxidises as soon as the sun shines on it. This is a totally natural and harmless process. Indeed, the Romans frequently bathed in green water because it is very good for the skin. The rock pool is continuously replenished with fresh water. So, enjoy living like a Romans did !
Public swimming pool with restaurant 5 kms from Rock Pool Cottage, in country – a beautiful walk or car drive. Daily rate for pool is 5 euros or 25 euros/week. The rate includes everything….sun-lounger, brolly etc.

1 hectare of private land
This is a luxury property, owned by a local family, going back centuries.
Please note the following :
1. The rock pool is usually filled from underwater springs. However, sometimes, in hot weather, the trough dries up. In such circumstances, the trough will be replenished with water from another source.
2. The car park is shared by an Italian couple, who have a small neighbouring property that is inhabited from time to time.
NO SWIMMING POOL NOR LEISURE POOL ON SITE….
There is only a fresh water rock pool that in a bygone era was a fresh water trough for the farm animals.
PUBLIC POOL + RESTAURANT NEARBY…

La casa è accogliente e fornita di tutto il necessario, compreso un locale lavanderia/stireria. I proprietari sono molto gentili e disponibili e ci hanno fatto trovare un cestino con prodotti locali. Il terreno che circonda la casa è un uliveto molto grande. Il giardino a ridosso della casa è ben tenuto e fiorito. Magari sarebbe bene organizzare una doccia esterna vicino alle sedie a sdraio. La proprietà è isolata e questo è da considerare nella scelta. Per noi andava bene. Unico neo: non eravamo stati avvertiti dall’Agenzia che ci sono dei vicini (persone peraltro molto gentili che vivono nello stesso fabbricato), poichè abbiamo cani che avremmo voluto lasciare liberi. Infatti nelle mail di richiesta avevamo specificao che cercavamo una casa solo per noi.
