Cute 1-bedroom garden apartment

Stay in Umbria

The Sara apartment is one of our most popular Umbrian vacation rentals. It is a charming 1-bedroom farmhouse apartment with rustic charm. The living room and dining room are combined with kitchen facilities in one large room that also features a fireplace. The double bedroom has an en suite bathroom and french doors that open on to a private garden and outdoor sitting area.

This vacation rental is located on a farm owned and run by the Zappelli family. Wanda and her daughters speak some English and are warm and friendly hosts. The grounds are lovely, filled with flowers and herbs in season. The original cobblestone walkways that cut through the property can be uneven in spots. The farm has harvested olives for generations. A swimming pool is on the property, tucked in among the olive trees. Trevi is 10 minutes away, Spoleto is a 30-minute drive, and Assisi and other hill towns are easy day trips. Other vacation rentals on the same site include Maria and Alessandra.

Trevi, Italy - Umbria, Home of Sara

Our Trevi-area apartments are located in the countryside, outside of town, a 5-minute drive away. Trevi is a beautiful, sleepy little town with a hometown feel. Ringed with olive groves, Trevi rises above the convenient Via Flamminia, just 30 minutes north of Spoleto and 30 minutes south of Assisi. In town, you can visit a modest painting gallery and the Church of St. Francis. The small Flash Museum hosts cutting edge, international art exhibits – an unlikely bit of avant-garde in a quiet Umbrian hill town. The town is lovely, with a lively piazza and numerous small produce and grocery shops, cafés, barbershops and a small selection of good restaurants and coffee bars.

Nearby Spoleto is a beautiful town that dates back to Roman times. Sites there include an ancient Roman theater, the Duomo, the castle and museums of archeology, sacred art and modern art. Because of its annual performing arts festival, it has a cosmopolitan feel, with good shopping and a nice selection of restaurants.

Umbria is often called Italy’s “Green Heart,” making the beautiful area around Spoleto the perfect base for a 2-week stay. The rugged Umbrian hills give way to sweeping views of olive groves. And the small towns carry on, unchanged by time, and largely undiscovered by American tourists.

The Trevi-area apartments are about 5 minutes south of town and about a 25-minute drive north of Spoleto. Assisi is about a 25-minute drive and Perugia is about 45 minutes away. By express train, Rome is about 90 minutes away.


This farm is one of our most popular sites in Italy, mainly because of the warmth and hospitality of the its owners, the Zappelli family. Wanda and her three adult daughters live on the farm and work hard running it. They are lovely people and gracious, caring hosts. They all speak some English and welcome guests as if they were family. Our Umbrian UnTour staff person is always available by cell phone if guests have problems or concerns. Please note the farm will no longer offer meal service as in past years.
