Pool furniture is in pool room next to private shared pool. Take what you like and put where you like ! Terrazza Grande with WiFi : 2 double bedrooms, 1 bathroom + 1 sitting/dining room with a fully fitted kitchen. PLUS LARGE TERRACE ! A spacious apartment with sofabed in sitting room. Simply furnished, an extremely competitively priced apartment, in the most exquisite and unique of contexts. With 2 beautiful pools to choose from (one private/shared, the other public, 3 mins walk), both pools included in the rate, plus a restaurant and a trattoria, you can forgive the lack of soft furnishings. This is very much an outdoors context.....for walkers, nature lovers, sunbathers, animal lovers who want to bring their pets, romantic couples, families and groups of friends. Please note that at Fogliano, you leave a tarmacked road and proceed onto a country track, which is easily driveable. NOT a white road, full of stones and holes. NOT a dirt road. It is a flattened earth road. Indeed, it is a beautiful country drive through woodlands and chestnut groves, perfect for nature lovers and conservationists alike. A 5 kms long spectacle of pure tranquility. You may come across some ramblers. And, maybe a car. But this would be rare because this is the driveway, directly to the castle !! Then, you arrive......to a magical place, until now, hidden from the world. A 9C beautifully restored, walled castle, full of higgledy piggledy tiny, cobbled lanes and arches, with 2 piazzas and a church. Located between Spoleto and Aquasparta, in the midst of lush countryside. Bought and restored by a local Macerino man, the adorable Romeo! Neither he nor his wife, a marriage of 45 years, believe in old age, because they say that Macerino Castle casts a special “buona salute” spell on those who desire it. Maybe it’s the natural spring water. Maybe it’s the up and down lanes to navigate. Maybe it’s the captivating quality of this Harry Potter place working its white magic on our souls. Certainly, you will leave Macerino Castle a changed person. It transforms bad to good, ugly to beauty and complicated to simple. After a stay here, you will feel totally restored. Immediately outside the walls of this tiny castle, is a trattoria, a very simple place for locals that does exceedingly good food. In addition, there is a rather flash restaurant + bar in front of a very glamorous public pool. Spectacular mountain views embrace a landscape peppered with olive groves and vineyards. ALFRESCO EATING ? While this apartment has no outside area, there are several open areas immediately outside the entrance to the apartment, within the castle walls, which are very sunny, where you can erect a table and chairs for alfresco eating. If this is your wish, please advise and we can arrange a table and chairs to be available outside, usually on the sundeck besides the pool. There are no residents inside the castle walls so you may have the place more or less to yourselves !! PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING : THERE IS A SHARED UTILITY ROOM WITH A WASHING MACHINE ETC. CONVENIENTLY PLACED IN THE CASTLE. PLEASE ASK TO BE SHOWN IT ON ARRIVAL. IRONING FACILITIES, HAIR DRYERS, COTS + HIGHCHAIRS ARE NOT LEFT IN THE APARTMENT BECAUSE WHEN LARGE GROUPS STAY, THEY TEND TO MOVE THESE THINGS AROUND AND THEY GET LOST !! SO, IF YOU WISH TO HAVE ANY OF THE ABOVE IN YOUR APT, PLEASE REQUEST THEM PRIOR TO ARRIVAL. GOLF CLOSE TO PERUGIA TENNIS + HORSE-RIDING CLOSE TO SPOLETO BIKES CAN BE HIRED VIA THE INTERNET AND DELIVERED TO THE CASTLE OTHER ACTIVITIES ! We can organise olive oil tasting, wine tasting, chef at home, eating in chef's house, truffle hunting, picnics with a donkey, cheese making, caving, canyoning, rafting, canoeing, horse riding.....anything you like.......all at better rates than you get going through the conventional channels. This is because all the aforementioned activities, except for horse-riding, are offered by our partners to ensure you have the holiday of a lifetime ! For instance, the olive oil of one of our partners (Ciarletti) was blessed by the Pope 2 years ago, after it had won the top prize in Italy. He, amongst other of our partners, offers olive oil tasting, accompanied by a lunch, at his farmhouse. All our activities are totally authentic, put on by Italians, whose families go back for centuries and who have been in the truffle, olive oil and wine trade for all of that time. And, because all the activities we offer are 'inhouse' we can undercut all the 'professional' businesses, for whom it is their livelihood. Such activities are not our livelihood. Neither are they the livelihood of our partners. We and our partners offer these activities with the aim of enriching your holiday.More
