DESCRIPTION The tunnel leads you into an ancient amphitheatre, which is one of the many terraces of the Villa with its nearby charming private swimming pool made of travertine stones, deriving from an ancient roman bridge dismantled in North Africa. The property has several furnished outside areas where you can relax and enjoy the captivating views of olive groves, oak woods, the Mountain and the Umbrian Hills.
Inside the villa the antique furniture, paintings and magnificent features have been preserved by the owners who have added modern amenities to provide first class comfortable and informal accommodation with style. The central part of the villa is the 13th Century tower which accommodates five rooms with amazing high ceilings. After a few centuries the tower was complemented by an adjacent villa which was recently restored by the present owner following the true Tuscan tradition with terracotta floors and shuttered windows.
The surrounding natural woodland gardens have terraced walking paths and the gardens with meticulously cured lawns have olive and lemon trees every now and again with pretty gravel paths around. The flower beds are filled with roses, irises, geraniums and lavender. There is a raised pergola which is partially shaded and seats approximately 14 people. The gravel courtyard which is lined with cypress trees also has a 14 seating dining area with a hammock.
The town, only a few minutes' walk from the castle offers you the possibility to have everything you need at your disposal.
This magnificent Castle crowning a quaint little Tuscan town dates back to the 13th Century and has a distinctive tower that is one of the defining features of the Villa. The property is rich in history and some parts of the property date back to the Etruscan times. At the top of the driveway through the arched, dramatically lit tunnel you commence your entrance into the past.
