Brief description

Historic villa with swimming pool and a park measuring 1.4 hectares, located on a hillside that is less than 1 km from the centre of Spoleto. In good structural condition but in need of restoration, the home consists of large living spaces, 9 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms and a garage. With swimming pool and lift. The property also has an additional basement garage, two canopies and technical rooms under the pool.



Geographic position

Less than 1 km from the centre of Spoleto, in a hilly position and with a beautiful view of the Rocca Albornoziana, Villa Melody enjoys its privacy, albeit at a short distance from town and all of the services it offers.

Spoleto is one of the most enchanting art cities in Umbria, famous for its "Festival of the Two Worlds", which for over half a century has been celebrated on the historical district’s streets during the summer, with its international cultural and art events.

The location of the home is easily accessible. The superstrada highway is two minutes away, and in less than three quarters of an hour it will lead you to Perugia (60 km), Assisi (46 km) and Spello (35 km). Rome is one and a half hours away (125 km), while Florence (210 km) can be reached in less than two and a half hours.

The Perugia airport is the closest (56 km), and about 40 minutes by car. Whereas the airports of Rome Ciampino (141 km) and Rome Fiumicino (160 km) are less than two hours away.

Description of buildings

Villa Melody has a net saleable area of 474 sq.m, in addition to about 68 sq. m of technical rooms, two canopies measuring 34 and 25 net sq.m and a 40 sq. m additional garage.


The villa has three floors; the ground floor consists of the main entrance with a staircase to the upper floors and an elevator, and a beautiful double living room with a fireplace that overlooks a level outdoor space surrounded by woods with breathtaking views of the Rocca. It is ideal for outdoor dining.

The ground floor also has a kitchen with a large fireplace, a bedroom/living room with private bathroom and a bathroom for the living quarters.

From the hallway you can access a large service area, with storage, a bathroom and the garage, which could also potentially be used as a hobby room or a gym.

The sleeping quarters are on the upper floors: There are 5 rooms with private bathrooms on the first floor and 3, also with private bathrooms, on the second floor, where we also find another bathroom with large ante-room.


The swimming pool is located behind the villa, in a raised position and surrounded by a terrace/solarium. Underneath there are technical rooms, with a net saleable area of 68 sq.m.


A short distance away there are also two canopies measuring 34 and 25 sq.m and an additional basement garage of 40 sq.m.

State and finishing

The structural condition of the villa is good, however, due to the lack of use by the current owners over a period of several years, the property is in need of refurbishing.

External areas

Villa Melody is surrounded by 1.4 hectares of private land, which is employed by the park surrounding the house and the parking area. The rest has fruit trees and woods.

In front of the villa, with access from the living room, there is a flat partly paved space from which you can admire the Rocca.

Although very close to the city and conveniently located with respect to the main road, the home’s privacy is guaranteed by the surrounding woods and the gate that limits access to the property.

Use and potential uses

With its size, number of rooms and location, Villa Melody can be a private residence or an accommodation for visitors to the area.
