Casa Giardino

Bold colour combinations transform an old Umbrian stone house into a cheerful holiday home. Set on a hillside on the outskirts of the medieval town of Spello, this house is composed of different ancient buildings with the oldest walls dating from the 16th century and the newest from the 1930s. The interior is a mix of vintage pieces, travel souvenirs from various countries, and modern design. The expressive colour concept brings this mix of styles into beautiful harmony. Each room is decorated in a different color scheme: The kitchen’s colour palette, with two anthracite walls and green accents, was inspired by the artwork that hangs above the sofa. The red master bedroom on the first floor has a Japanese appearance, the blue bedroom is reminiscent of the sea, and in the yellow bedroom colors and furnishings from Laos, Cambodia and Burma create Asian flair. But the idyllic garden, complete with a small pool, places it definitively in Italy: It smells of Mediterranean herbs and offers a beautiful view of the green Umbrian hills.

What to do

Walking, cycling, swimming, golf, trips to the towns in the area (Spello, Foligno, Bevagna, Montefalco, Assisi, Perugia)

Why we like this house

The eclectic mix of styles gives the holiday home its unique ambience. In Casa Giradino you live with a view of the valley and the hills, but close to the centre of the medieval village.

This house is great for

Ideal for families with teenagers or for a holiday with fa group of riends, as two bedrooms have separate entrances and can only be reached via the garden.

  1. What an amazing place owned and managed by an extraordinary women, Andrea. Andrea owns few properties in Spello, Umbria and we had the pleasure to stay at the “Casa Giardino. Excellent choice.
    Apartment located at the old city of Spello (parking is not nearby but it’s perfectly manageable). Going up the street and passing through the wooden entrance door, magic happens. The design and decoration are extraordinary. Every way you look you find something special from a different part of the world, and magickly, they all come together to a perfect place. So much though was put on all the big and little items that we felt so comfortable , home away from home. As for Andrea, she is such an amazing host . All the communication before arrival was clear and accurate. During all our stay she kept in touch making sure we have all we need and that we are enjoying the stay and Spello. I have to say that we followed all her tips and recommendations and all were just perfect, leaving us with wonderful memories form that trip. Pictures on web site are exactly what you see when you arrive.

  2. This is the most beautifuly curated home. I’m more of a minimalist but can appreciate how Andrea thoughtfully furnished and accessorised Casa Giardino. Beautiful fabrics, colourful rugs and a lots of interesting pieces. the house is beautiful, the garden and pool an oasis in a very quiet location with terrific views, yet only a few minutes away from the restaurants and shops. It’s the perfect holiday home! Comunication with Andrea was responsive and check in flawless.

  3. “This place is so special!”
    We have had a wonderful week here in Andrea’s beautiful and comfortable house. The views are spectacular – my kid have said several times that they almost feel unreal or as it in a movie – so beautiful and picturesque.
    We loved the pool and spent a lot of time enjoying the garden and the way Andrea has created an outdoor living space to enjoy “La dolce vita”.
    Andrea’s hospitality, warmth and efforts make us feel at home! This place is so special!

  4. Casa Giardino war fuer mich und meine Familie das “ideale” Ferienhaus. Wunderbare Lage (es sind nur einige Gehminuten ins Zentrum von Spello) mit traumhaften Blick ueber die umbrische Landschaft. Der Garten mit Pool ist der ideale Ort um die Seele baumeln zu lassen. Das Haus ist sehr charmant und komfortabel eingerichtet und vielleicht sogar noch schoener als auf den Fotos zu sehen ist. Fr. Falkner eine sehr aufmerksame Gastgeberin die uns viele wertvolle Tipps (Restaurants, Shops, Sightseeing) gegeben hat. Wir werden diese Adresse sehr gerne weitergeben.
