Castle of Our Own in a Story-book, Idyllic Setting
When my husband told me he had booked us a castle of our own on a hilltop in Italy to celebrate our 33rd anniversary, I thought he was overstating it. Until I saw the online photo. And I soon found that photo did not do the place justice. As most beauty—the camera just does not capture.
We had arrived at Torre del Falco after several days of travel that been exhausting. We were caught in the recent British Airways debacle in London (beginning of our trip radically changed, luggage lost, etc.) and so by the time we got to Spoleto, I was a little emotionally and physically spent. My eyes perked up as we drove the winding road up to the flower-lined driveway and when we got to the top and arrived on the property, my eyes widened and were filled with the glorious, unimaginable view. And that was just when we met Beatrice! Beatrice met us at our car and was the loveliest of hosts. She took us to our castle, made us feel at home and did everything in her power to make sure our stay was the most special it could be. It truly was. My husband and I had the entire tower to ourselves with many rooms from which to choose, and of course, we wanted to stay in the top floor to have the pinnacle. Our view at the top was extraordinary to say the least. When something is indescribably beautiful, I like to say “It broke my eyes.” Torre del Falco broke my eyes and filled my heart. I would recommend Beatrice Panichi’s special, unforgettable place to all my friends and more. I will never forget her or her castle.
Dear Pam, you and John have been the most adorable and interesting guests a host can ever dream about, and I dare say that our friendship is very dear to me!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
most relaxing holiday
When I booked the Falco I obviously read all the reviews and I must say they were spot on. Beatrice is a wonderful host who offers help where needed and freedom when desired. We had the luck that for most of the days we were there (7) no other guests where there so we enjoyed the pool for ourselves, which was very nice and not cold. The rooms were excellent and the kitchen and living room is well equiped. Another plus, at least when you don't mind cats, is that every now and then a cat stroles along for a kuddle and crashes with you on the lounge bed by the pool. Or when bbq'ing sits itself at the table outside to be served diner. We loved it and made friends with a couple of them very fast. The town of Spoleto is surprisingly interesting and a lot of narrow uphill and downhill streets are there to be discovered. Also some very nice restaurants which Beatrice is more than happy to point out. The atmosphere of the place is easy going and has a certain grandeure that makes you experience that you are the king of your own caste in the hills of Umbria. The pictures on the website do not do it just. The bathrooms for example are very pretty in reality with nice glazed tiles and a modern glass sink but on the photo's it looks a bit 70's. Which again is not what it actually is. In short we loved our stay and would go back in a hart beat, life stands still for a moment and allows you to wind down and recharge.
SOGGIORNO FRA STORIA E NATURA
I rilievi morfologici che si incontrano attraversando la Valle Spoletana, luogo che segnò profondamente l’animo di San Francesco per le straordinarie bellezze naturali, sono per me di forte impatto emotivo, così come le architetture medievali di abbazie, pievi, torri e fortificazioni in pietra: sono affascinanti strutture erette sulle alture che dominano la valle. E’ proprio su un altura, a pochi minuti dal centro di Spoleto, che vengo attratto da una torre medievale in pietra denominata ”Torre del Falco”, nella sua totale compattezza e bellezza di struttura architettonica, che emerge nel verde dei secolari alberi. Qui ho ritenuto trascorrere un fine settimana, immerso per incanto tra storia e natura, in compagnia di sorridenti amici al bordo di un invitante piscina che ricorda gli abbeveratoi rurali e i mulini idraulici, tipici del luogo dove l’acqua diventa protagonista. Peccato che i giorni siano volati via ……ma ci tornerò!!!
Definitely my favorite accommodation in Spoleto
I have been to Spoleto many times and stayed in several places but I have to say that Torre del Falco is definitely my favorite one. Furbished in typical local style with some Medieval/ancient flavor, this place is immersed in the nature and surrounded by an enjoyable quiet and tranquility, perfect to rest. At the same time it is few minutes from Spoleto's town and the historical center.
The property includes a tall ancient tower with several floors, spacious rooms and an amazing terrace on the top where it is possible to enjoy breathtaking countryside views..a perfect place for the morning breakfast. It has also a master apartment and a spacious dependence all perfectly and tastefully furbished. Outside there is a spacious open are and a beautiful pool equipped with bed.The whole property is very clean and the landlady, Beatrice, is second to nobody for her hospitality and courtesy. She is very friendly and enjoys the presence of guests. I would strongly recommend a stay in this beautiful and peaceful place, where you can dream to jump back in the past and relieve the stress of your everyday's life,
The property and apartment were a combined spectacular experience. Spoleto itself is amazing, and staying in this fabulous apartment, beautifully decorated and with such a wonderful view made the experience perfect. The property is beautifully designed and tucked away for solitude and overlooking the mountains. I highly recommend a stay here (and bring some tiny treats for the small ponies)>
Everything about Torre del Falco was perfect. The grounds, views, flowers and pool are as beautiful as the photos suggest, if not more so. The pool is long enough for lap swimming, and the mild salt water is much nicer than chlorine. The interiors are finished to a high standard and in excellent taste, simple but very appealing, and very well maintained. It's tempting just to relax by the pool for hours on end, and some of our group did that from time to time, but the location also is ideal for going to any number of wonderful places. Spoleto has a lot to offer and is very atmospheric. It's just a few minutes' drive to the main carpark with moving walkways to the center. The walk from Torre del Falco to town is also very nice, taking only a half hour even for the uphill return, and a moderately fit 65-year-old did not find it taxing. (We didn't try the walk at night, but with a flashlight I think it would be fine.) Daytrips to fascinating and beautiful places, including the Montefalco vineyards as well as the many famous towns, were easy to manage by car or in some cases by train. (Service to Rome is very frequent; we were surprised by how much of Rome we were able to see in a daytrip by train.) But perhaps what makes Torre del Falco most special is the way Beatrice cares for her guests. As we were planning our trip, Beatrice responded very thoroughly and candidly to our endless questions. We sensed that we could rely on her to give us helpful and accurate information, and we were right. From the moment we arrived, Beatrice was very attentive and personable, making us feel like family. She lives on the property and was always available to help, yet was never intrusive. We found that to be ideal. Another thing that made our stay so nice, and which I would recommend to others, was that Beatrice arranged for a talented local cook (I should say chef, as the cooking was of a very high standard) to make dinner for us on 5 of the nights we were there. That arrangement could not have worked out better; Alessandra made wonderful meals emphasizing the local ingredients and traditions, and was very pleasant to deal with despite the fact that she speaks no English and we speak no Italian. Beatrice went above and beyond to make these arrangements, to check that we were enjoying the meals, and to serve as translator. All in all, this was the most enjoyable stay I have experienced anywhere, and our entire group was delighted with it. We shall return!
