(4 Star Hotels) Spoleto
A miracle, a tannery and a luxury hotel
Three reasons why you'll love it here
- Sweet dreams in sound-proofed rooms with king sized beds
- The delicious al fresco breakfast served in the courtyard
- An intimate little hotel, with a truly fascinating past, in the center of Spoleto
If you like the idea of staying in an intimate 4 star hotel in the heart of Spoleto, surrounded by beautiful antiques and period artworks, you'll love San Luca.
It was back in 1198, that spring waters suddenly surfaced in the gardens of Spoleto's convent, straight into the hands of none other than Pope Innocent III. The waters of what became known as "the holy wellspring" were believed to have healing powers and for this reason, it was ordained that pilgrims could freely draw from the well.
In the 19th century, a tannery was erected on the site. When the business was moved out of town, the building was abandoned and left to fall into ruin. Paolo Zuccari purchased the derelict property in 1993 and set about restoring it to its former beauty and radically transforming its interiors.
Today's guests are greeted in Hotel San Luca's lobby, the floors of which are tiled with traditional handcrafted Umbrian terracotta.
Venetian chandeliers, Frau armchairs and exquisite pieces of 18th and 19th century furniture purchased in the antique shops for which Spoleto is famous, create an elegant yet, at the same time, relaxed and welcoming environment.
At Hotel San Luca, guests sleep sweetly in perfectly sound proofed bedrooms and suites, equipped with the latest in technology and in-room amenities.
The most luxurious of the hotel's bathrooms are decorated with the finest Italian marble and fabulous hydromassage baths.
In summertime, days begin with a delicious breakfast, served al fresco in the hotel's pretty courtyard
Rivolta and Carmigiani linens, Sambonet silverware, Richard Ginori porcelain: Hotel San Luca's restaurant is one of Spoleto's most elegant eateries ever (and the cuisine is as exquisite as the table settings).
