Lovely private location a couple of kms from Spoleto. We stayed in Il Tartufo; a converted 16th century farm building close to the hosts. They speak English very well and are on hand, but not intrusive. The second appartment has a more private entrance and if you wanted to see Francesca and Ludovico less, you could book that one. Pool is lovely and clean and our teenagers loved it. There is the advantage that you only share it with one other family.

“Warm welcoming host Ludovico!”

We visited Spoleto in the beginning of March, not exactly the best time for visiting because it was quite chilly with temperature falling around 0C at night, and the rain. But the warm welcome of the owner Ludovico and his 3 little cats has lightened up our visit.

We stayed at Il Tartufo for 4 nights. We arrived after dark and were kind of lost on our way searching for the property. Luckily, Ludovico was only a phone call away. He came to pick us up right away and knowing that it was too late for us to get dinner, he kindly offered us the very tasty cheese & apple tart made by his sisters. He even prepared us breakfast in the next morning with fresh brewed coffee and bread n jam!

Ludovico offered many good advices on places to visit. He even accompanied us on a trip to a nearby winery where we tasted some great wines from the famous Montefalco area.

The property is a 16C farmhouse surrounded by olive groves and with a nice view of Montefalco. It has been restored by Ludovico after he inherited the property from his late uncle. The 2-bedrooms house is cozy and spacious, but not exactly pristine clean. The kitchen corner is well equipped with cooking utensils and a full set of dining wares for 4 persons.

Overall, we had a comfortable stay at Il Tartufo and we deeply appreciated the fantastic hospitality of Ludovico!

“Fantastic place - we'd go back.”

We loved La Licina: incredibly friendly and helpful owners (every restaurant Ludovico recommended was excellent, he even drove us to a hard to find pizza place), great pool, rustic but comfortable apartment. Our kids loved walking to the local restaurant as the path is through a field with very friendly donkeys, the cats were also a big hit. If we stayed again we'd probably choose the other apartment as the outside space was better, but we loved our time there.

We spent eight days here and it was a perfect base to explore the major sites and small towns in Umbria. The apartment is clean and well furnished, located on a quiet farm just a couple km outside Spoleto. It is on a hill with a fantastic view from the patio--you can see all the way to Montefalco. We cooked breakfast and several dinners there. The owners live next door and are ready to give good travel advice to see some of the smaller, lesser known towns in the region or to suggest and book restaurant reservations. There is a large supermarket a short ways away for any essentials. We found that the apartment provided the perfect place for our vacation stay.
