Cisterna is a two floor cottage with a beautiful private terrace, overlooking the manicured gardens, full of flowers and shrubs, and, beyond, the mountains. And, a shady patio at the side of the cottage.

Located next to the church, its name comes from the ancient cistern of rainwater on which it was built.

On the ground floor there is a living/dining room with fireplace and a separate kitchen.

On the 1st floor there is a twin bedroom with a bathroom. The landing of this floor opens onto a huge garden, in front of the church.

Beautiful panorama of mountains and woods from the cottage.

Bought by a wealthy Roman, Spoleto Splash is a private village, consisting of 5 luxury cottages, discreetly spaced apart to ensure privacy, restored to the highest standard and equipped with everything you can imagine that befits a mediaeval setting. This arrangement ensures maximum privacy for all the guests. And, none of the cottages is more than a 1 minute walk to the large pool.

Spoleto Splash is locally known as Acquaiura, a hill-top village, along the Valnerina.

There is also a Veranda, in the midst of the borgo, consisting of a large sitting/dining room with a double sofa-bed, a fully fitted kitchen with dish-washer and a shower room. There is a vine-covered pergola, a pizza oven and a BBQ. The Veranda can be used as an extension for your friends who may wish to visit you and stay for a night or so. And/or, it is used by the guests to meet each other on neutral territory and to eat together without messing up their own cottage !!

To date, Acquaiura (alias Spoleto Splash) has been a secret place for world famous celebrities, seeking solace and discretion. Now, however, this private village has been launched onto the holiday rental market, under its stage name of Spoleto Splash, so that you too can experience living like a celebrity – but, not at celebrity rates. Go on, pamper yourselves!

Acquaiura (alias Spoleto Splash) was built around the year 1000 AD along the Flaminia route, which departs from Rome towards the North of Italy. It was populated by countrymen and the site was a refreshment place for the troops and the messengers of the Pope along the route towards the North of Italy and Rome.

In the centre is a church built in honour of San Michele Arcangelo in 1500 AD.

Acquaiura (alias Spoleto Splash) is probably the 2nd oldest inhabited village in Umbria. It is off the Flaminia, the main road that leads directly to the heart of the mediaeval city of Spoleto, 7 kms away, a tiny city that pre-dates Rome.

LOCATION.....

Leaving Spoleto and turning right onto the Flaminia, you follow the beautiful, sweeping curves of the Flaminia, mountains and valleys, dipping below the road, as you wind your way upwards towards Acquaiura (alias Spoleto Splash). After 6.5 kms, you leave the Flaminia and wend your way upwards for a further 5 minutes until you come to a stop at Acquaiura (alias Spoleto Splash).

Acquaiura (alias Spoleto Splash) is at 750 meters above sea level, and, it is surrounded by mountains and woods. It is 120 km from Rome, 200 km from Florence, 50 km from Perugia and 7 km from Spoleto, a medieval town with many works of art, cultural activities and a vast selection of restaurants.

Acquaiura (alias Spoleto Splash) is the ideal location to visit the center of Italy (Umbria, Toscana, Marche and Lazio) and to enjoy a truly natural and exquisitely beautiful environment.

From Spoleto : shuttle service on request.

ACTIVITIES.....

In the immediate vicinity to Acquaiura (alias Spoleto Splash), there are many artistic and cultural events eg the Spoleto Festival and Umbria Jazz in July. Indeed, there are cultural events all round the year.

All within easy reach, are the well-known hill-top towns such as Todi, Assisi, Fonti del Clitunno, Orvieto, Trevi, Spello and, the close by and historically significant Spoleto; Or, further away, there is the outstandingly beautiful Gran Piano and Casteluccio (1 hr 30 mins), passing Norcia (1 hr) along the way.

About 12 kms away, is the impressive Marmore Falls, the largest waterfalls in Europe !

You can ride horses through the mountains, play Golf or go wine and/or olive oil tasting.

Guides and/or drivers are available, by request. Ask for details.

At the edge of the village, a few minutes walk away from the cottages, so as not to disturb, Acquaiura (alias Spoleto Splash) offers the use of barbecues, ping pong tables, exercise machinery and basketball hoops, in a covered, outdoor area.

Daily Tours with a choice of regional tourist guides or a driver (Spoleto, Todi, Narni, Fonti del Clitunno, Castelluccio, Norcia, Assisi, Marmore Falls). Booking, by request.

HOW TO GET TO US.....

BY TRAIN - Spoleto is the main station and it is very close to the Borgo (7 km). High speed train (EuroStar) leaves from Rome and it takes 1 hour and ten minutes.

Verandah, large entertaining space to cook and socialize with friends, who can stay overnight here !

Extensive private grounds to wander in…

Included in the rate is a Welcome Pack with toiletries to start you off.

Car, chauffeur, chef, maid service, bicycles - all locally available for hire - pls ask for details.

There is a private tennis club in central Spoleto that accepts temporary memberships.

Further. there is a State of the Art gym called “Unique" in Spoleto that also accepts temporary memberships. Here there are weight rooms, many classes, a large pool and a huge sauna.

And, in the nearby hills, there are fantastic riding stables, where you can practice in the paddock or trek in the mountains under the sun or the stars.

Indeed, there are many things to see and do in and around Spoleto that we can arrange for you. This is because our small partnership group, ourselves included, own all the properties that we advertise, about 70 in all, from villas with pools to smart town houses to central city apartments.

Subsequently, 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 familes 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 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.

Examples of activities....

1.A visit to Ciarletti oil mill, including lunch and unlimited wine. This famous Italian olive oil was blessed by the current Pope, in recognition of its status as Italy's No I olive oil.

2.A cookery lesson by a local “celebrity" chef at his restaurant, including lunch and unlimited wine.

3.A meal cooked for you in your home by a local “celebrity" chef, including all the ingredients and unlimited wine.

4.A truffle hunt with a local “celebrity" chef, including a truffle lunch and unlimited wine.

Please note :

you can hire our chef, a local Spoleto celebrity by the name of Leonardo. He will create feasts with unlimited fine local wines for you for as little as 30 euros/head (Dec, 2017).

We can arrange for Leonardo to chat with you re your budget and your tastes. ABSOLUTELY NO OBLIGATION TO EMPLOY HIM! But, you will.... because his catering is exceptional value. We have excellent reviews of him, going back years, on that well known review site !

Leonardo also arranges truffle hunts, picnics in the you like that includes food and unlimited fine local wines !! He is famous all over Umbria and knows everyone. So, whatever you desire, from olive oil tasting to wine tasting, he can arrange in any area you wish. And he offers cooking for chldren ! Followed, of course, by the obligatory feast and unlimited fine local wines !!

I arrived here 30 odd years ago, fell in love with the place, my 1st spiritual home. Couldn't wait to move here permanently. Did so. With 2nd husband. Ist husband declined. Was persuaded to rent to someone, whose violinist daughter was performing in a Spoleto festival because she couldn't find anywhere to stay.....and, we happened to be holidaying in Sydney. That's how it started. 15 years ago (at time of writing, 2018). We bought more property here. Our estate agent saw what we were doing. She joined up with us. The person we bought property from saw what we were doing. He joined up with us. Suddenly we were in the holiday rental business, for real ! Sydney lost its appeal as we started to introduce potential guests to the beautiful properties that our small partnership group offers, about 50 in all....apartments, villas and pool properties. It is such a joyful experience to be able to offer people the holiday of a lifetime. Never having been in business before, both of us retired academics, we wished we'd done this all our lives. However, our hard-nosed business friends describe our activity as merely a life-style. "You should charge for this, charge for that, the euros add up", they say. But money is not our goal. Your happiness is.
