Situated on the first floor of an old stone building that dates back about 100 years ago, Apartment Limone is as much an artful place to stay, as it is a delightful spritz of cheer. “I tried to imbue the home with character,” says owner Andrea, who painted the rooms with bold, uplifting colors and found a vintage rattan sofa that he covered with pillows from Turkey and Asia. Andrea owns a few other properties in the area that have been featured in design magazines, including Barbanera villa, part of the BoutiqueHomes collection.
Take your espresso on the large balcony with French doors and enjoy a stunning panorama of the rolling Umbrian hills. Outside your door, you’re steps away from the central square of charming Spello, a hillside town that slopes up Saint Francis’s mountain, Monte Subasio. Watch the medieval city turn peach at sunset, as the light reflects off the stone buildings, built from the pink marble of the mountain.
Then it’s on to Italian life at its best, whether it be a truffle hunt, cooking class, or wine tasting. A bright and lively apartment in Spello, Limone is a perfect home base for exploration.
