DESCRIPTION COMPOSITION

In the middle of the heart of Italy is situated a charming stronghold with a high tower dating back to 1300. Originally owned by the Trinci family, umbrian medieval lords, Torre dei Guelfi is now a superb residence where you can experience a luxurious stay surrounded by a fascinating historical atmosphere. This magnificent structure is divided into 2 complexes which are connected to each other through a wide panoramic terrace. The entrance to the house is through an opening in the medieval wall. Once you have passed through it you will find a nice pathway that will lead you to the church and to the garrison. The careful restoration of the church brought back to light amazing vaults and a 300’s crucifixion which is now being restored. The garrison is divided into two floors: on the ground floor there is a double bedroom and a bathroom equipped for the needs of disabled people while the first floor hosts the wide and homey kitchen.
Through a staircase you can reach the large panoramic terrace that gives access to the solemn tower.  The tower homes a lovely fireplace room, a cozy living room and 3 master bedrooms each of which with ensuite bathroom.
The bedroom on the top of the tower is a big suite with a small sitting area and access to the roof terrace with an amazing view on the village and on the Umbrian hills.All rooms are equipped to allow you the perfect temperature thanks to under floor heating system and fan convectors. Internet access is free, thanks to wireless controllers.
The bedrooms all have plasma TVs with both pay per view and free channels, the mattresses are all orthopaedic while the sheets and the towels are all of high, precious quality. The ensuite bathrooms are all furnished with relaxing shower stalls with a pressurization that emits hot or cold water at your pleasure.

Torre dei Guelfi is situated in a splendid position surrounded by Umbria’s winding hills dotted with the typical umbrian historical villages. Here you can enjoy breathtaking views of the sun as it goes down and hides behind the green hills changing nature’s colors. This makes it also a perfect location for weddings and also for a romantic weekend getaway.

 

10 sleeps, 7 bathrooms, 5 bedrooms

The Garrison

On the ground floor of the garrison is located a spacious double bedroom for disabled people with a bathroom with a box-shower and air conditioner. The high ceiling with wooden beams, the parade bench decorated with the typical Baroque vegetation together with the walnut and oak wooden wardrobes gives you the feel of living the lords’ life during Medieval age. 

On the same level there also is a wide bathroom completely recovered by 18th century tiles and with all the facilities and comforts needed by disabled people.  

 The first floor of the garrison there is a large kitchen. The pots and pans in copper together with the cooking utensils hanging on the walls around the kitchen create a nice and warm atmosphere where you can also dine during the winter time.

The Terrace
 
 As you get out of the kitchen you find yourself on the wide terrace which is equipped with outdoor ceramic vases with colorful flowers, tables and chairs and where you can enjoy a meal “al fresco”, use it as a solarium to sunbathe during the afternoon or simply  just relax listening to the breeze of the wind in the evening.

The Tower (33 mt):

From a wooden staircase on the terrace you can reach the small tower door characteristic of the Medieval age when it was used for defense purposes and made by finely carved stone blocks of the period.

As you enter the third floor you arrive to a large room dominated by a huge fireplace flanked on its left and on its right by to church benches from the last decades of the ‘600.

A wooden staircase leads you down to the living room with comfy sofas and armchairs where you can rest and relax reading, surfing the internet through the internet spot or listening to music with the house’s stereo.

Climbing up to the fourth floor you arrive at the first large bedroom of the tower furnished with ‘700 style with wooden beams.

On the fifth floor there is another big bedroom the same size of the other one with a barrel vault made of brick and stone.

On the sixth floor there is the last bedroom, a bit smaller than the other two but the most fascinating being once the guardians’ recovery room from bad weather. From here you have access to the external walkway terrace with Guelf battlement where you can admire an amazing panorama of the entire stronghold and the beautiful valleys around it.
