If you are seeking an intimate experience with Nature, fun and frolics by the pool, within easy reach of “the bright lights” of Spoleto, then, Villa Marianna is for you. The pool is NOT open to the public and, therefore, is NOT available for those members of the public who use the restaurant. The pool is for the exclusive use of our holiday rental guests only. And, please note to date the pool is often quiet and sometimes empty, the majority of our guests preferring to explore historic sites than to lounge by a pool!

GENERAL INFORMATION: A Welcome Pack includes wine, pasta, pasta sauce, olive oil, tea, coffee, milk……plus toiletries to start you off. Our small partnership group, ourselves included, own all the properties that we advertise, about 60 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 you 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 can 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.
