Foligno Umbria luxury period villa - once a defensive castle built in times of turmoil, Torre Guelfa is now a prestigious, luxury villa full of charm and authentic character, set amongst the Umbrian Apennine, within walking distance of the village of Capodacqua di Foligno. A sympathetic restoration, carried out with utmost respect of the original structure, has brought to light some precious frescoes, wooden beams, vaulted ceilings and carved stone blocks, all tastefully complemented by fine antique furniture, statues, tapestries and embroidered curtains to recall the splendours of times gone by. The result is a unique accommodation equipped with all modern comforts such as ensuite shower rooms, under-floor heating, air conditioning, plasma screen televisions and WiFi internet. In this enchanting setting guests will spend an unforgettable holiday at the heart of the peaceful, Umbrian countryside. Three of the four bedrooms are arranged in the tower with stunning views over rolling hills and verdant fields, with the top-floor bedroom accessing a private terrace and the castle battlements. In one of the courtyards, surrounded by the original castle walls is a lovely pool and a large covered terrace offers one of the most stunning panoramic views of the whole estate and its winding pathways through the garden.A short stroll will take you to the charming village of Capodacqua di Foligno for your essential shopping whereas the larger town of Foligno is at a short drive from your villa. Ideally located at the heart of Umbria, Torre Guelfa is the perfect base to visit some of the finest Italian towns and villages, rich in art, history and gastronomic delicacies. During your stay at this villa make sure you include a trip to the Medieval towns of Assisi, Spello and Spoleto where food and music festivals are organised throughout the summer months. For something a little bit different, you can cool down on the shores of

Lake Trasimeno, just one hour away and enjoy your favourite

water-sports.
