You can do something truly special and stay at a fully restored castle boasting commanding view of the Tiber valley in the beautiful Umbria region of Italy.
Although the castle has stood there for hundreds of years, you can relax in comfort following a sparkling restoration which has produced eight bedrooms in a lovely spot bordering Umbria and Tuscany. Each suite has all the luxuries of the modern world, with the charm of an interior designed to take you back in time.
A retreat from everyday life, there are fireplaces in each room, velvet drapes, renaissance tapestries, frescoes, artwork, furniture and of course there’s the view.
The restoration began in 1980 and has now been completed to provide 2000 square metres of living space. There is one living room, one dining room, wine cellar with a private dining room, bar, two outdoor terraces available for dining and a professional kitchen.
Plus you can enjoy a swimming pool, a fitness centre and massage rooms.
The eight bedrooms all come with ensuite bathrooms and one of the bedrooms is equipped with a Jacuzzi and free pool towels are provided and changed every day. All utilities are included together with under floor heating so you don’t get chilly during the colder months.
You can take advantage of a private chef, waiters and maids if required and included in the cost of the rental of the property is an estate manager, security guard, gardeners and cleaning staff.
If you want activities, it’s possible to arrange private cooking classes, truffle hunting, wine tasting, biking and hiking, and also water colour painting classes.
