A 900 year old, 6 Bedroom, mystic medieval watch-tower with exquisite contemporary design.
Umbria Villa 12
This tower, an ancient stronghold built in the 12th century on top of a hill, is one of the many towers that have overlooked the city of Todi since the Middle Ages and one of the very unique design properties in central Italy. The castle, listed since 1954, has recently been restored with rigorous philological methods and transformed into an enchanting place of hospitality. The historical residence has in fact everything it takes to offer a magical retreat for a dreamlike getaway, together with a contemporary touch in furnishing and choice of colours and use of spaces. Intimate, comfortable and evocative, this charming property strikes for the purity of its architectural lines that merge and blend with a graceful contamination of design furniture and glamorous accent pieces: as seen today, the castle is the result of skilful structural renovation, with interiors organized to meet today’s demand for modern accommodation. For relaxing outdoors the tower offers on its top of 24 meters in height a panoramic and striking terrace from which admiring Todi and the surrounding countryside. The tower boasts 6 double bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, of which two feature a hot tub and 1 features a shower, a sauna and a hot tub. In the heart of the region that spawned Saint Benedict and Saint Francis, just 8 kilometres from the city of Todi, the tower is also a superb starting point for a visit to Umbria: Assisi, Perugia, Spoleto, Bevagna, Montefalco and Orvieto are all within 30/40 km, and it takes less than two hours to reach Rome and Florence by car or train.
