Torre Avellana is an ancient rural tower transformed into an unusual dwelling that is characteristic, cosy and elegant.
A family-like welcoming, the privacy of such an unspoilt place, the pleasant corners where to relax and the stunning view terrace, make it a perfect shelter for those who seek tranquillity and comfort.
Torre Avellana is an old tower without elevator and the three floors are connected with a spiral staircase.
The rooms are equipped with private bathrooms and have a wide panorama of the valley, the ceilings have chestnut beams and a suggestive wall which is partially dug out from the tufa stone. 'Persiana' shutters make rooms chillingly cool in summer. The rooms have an internal access from the Tower with a spiral staircase and an independent entrance coming in from a characteristic pedestrian lane.
A characteristic, ancient wine cellar dug out of the tufa stone, is equipped with a large table to host max 20 people, a wood – fired oven for pizzas and other traditional dishes and a romantic stone-built fireplace.
