Two classy little apartments just off the main square of one of Italy’s finest medieval hill-top towns. From the narrow pedestrian street (parking a five-minute walk) stairs lead to the top of the old pale stone and brick building where these ingeniously designed living spaces look out over roofscapes, rolling hills and mountains. All is sleek, chic, modern and inviting. Whitewashed beams and pale-tiled floors give an airy feel; open-plan living rooms have wood-burning stoves. Apartment One can sleep four: the living space (with sofabed) can be separated from the master bedroom by a frosted glass sliding wall. The well-equipped kitchen areas have marble worktops and seating for four. Bedrooms are calmly attractive; bathrooms have marble-lined walls, huge shower heads and fluffy towels (Apartment One has an elegant free-standing bath). Each has a balcony for two to sit with a cappuccino in the morning sun. You’re a meander from good restaurants and can be in Perugia, Assisi or Cortona within an hour. Book early for the Terry Gilliam-inspired July Film Festival when a giant screen is set up in the piazza.
