Description from owner

Description

The building, located at the foot of the Apennines but just one kilometer from the historic centre of Spoleto and then easily reachable on foot, about half of the 1300. As a military Watchtower fortress then used as a noble residence and later in agricultural use. This historic building, part of the artistic heritage of the municipality of Spoleto spread, is unique in the whole region, because it has the peculiarity of having two towers bi-nate. A stay at the castello di Testaccio will be like taking a leap in the middle ages. The recovery of this centuries old building was used all the art and wisdom of restoration and great technical knowledge-the owner (trader within the restoration works with the Soprintendenza ai monumenti d ' Italy). The property, it will appear almost equal to what must have been in medieval times. Have been restored even the existing walls that surrounded the Castle. So how was the restoration of the remains of a round tower, independent from the main building.

The property, it will appear almost equal to what must have been in medieval times. Have been restored even the existing walls that surrounded the Castle. So how was the restoration of the remains of a round tower, independent from the main building.

The property consists of a surrounding land of about 3.5 H partly fenced forest. The whole geographical area is classified as: a very naturalistic Area.

Around the building there is a natural park, with wild plants typical of the area as well as the turf. Present a characteristic swimming pool, created by retrieving what was once a watering hole for cattle. What does a vacation at the castle of Testaccio and who are comfortable with?

In general, it is suitable for everyone, including children, but only if supervised by an adult and not left alone, given the type of building and the geographical area in which it is located.

The customer who stay will have ample opportunity to choose what to do and there are many. Way of example you go from "dolce far niente, in: excursions, using the numerous marked trails that develop from the Valley to the mountains (walk; by bicycle or on horseback); cayoning; rafting; Canoe; climbing; paragliding; golf; tennis, fishing in lakes and rivers (all sports that you can practice in the area); visit the towns and places of art of which the region is rich; taste wines by visiting companies that produce them (the most famous being the Sagrantino di Montefalco) and typical gastronomic products. Or attend the famous: Festival dei due Mondi.
