Casa Magnolia is a town-house style home for 12, featuring six bedrooms and six bathrooms with a heated garden pool and roof terrace. The property is situated on the edge of Spoleto, providing expansive countryside views as well as immediate access by foot to Spoleto's numerous restaurants, shops and services. Spoleto can be reached in one hour from Rome, by train or car, and is convenient to touring the major points of interest in Umbria; Perugia, Assisi, Todi, Orvieto and Gubbio.

These special packages are available only through Homebase Abroad for travel through October 2005. Air travel, car rental and other extras are excluded, including security deposit, additional food and beverages, additional staff services, tips and other on-site extras.

"We are in the business of helping people create life-long memories and have personally treasured our fall trips for the beauty of the landscape, the extraordinary harvest bounty and the relaxed, off-season feel of the countryside. At the core of these trips is the Homebase Abroad villa -- each is a private home. The special activities provide an amplified and uniquely personal experience of Italy's ancient and remarkable culture," explained Mara Solomon, director of Homebase Abroad. "These trips have been structured for those who want an authentic, hands-on holiday meeting local people in local places and want to delve deeply into the character and culture of central Italy."
