Description from manager

Description

Rest your head in one of the most historic – and unique – accommodations in Umbria, just a few minutes away from a quaint local village. This ancient fortress, which now features well-appointed bedrooms in its pentagonal stone tower, combines original construction with modern amenities such as a pool, lovely alfresco dining area and a rooftop terrace that was once a guardsmen’s lookout.

The grounds are housed within a fortress, which contains a chapel, former garrison (now home to a bedroom and the kitchen), pentagonal stone tower (now living and sleeping quarters) and a swimming pool (open May to October) flanked by sunbeds. There are grassy areas with tables and chairs. On the first floor, just outside of the kitchen, there is a terracotta terrace with sun beds, flowers, a barbecue and covered dining area with a table and chairs for 10.

The two main buildings are connected by an external staircase.
