Medieval castle in a panoramic position overlooking Todi. Completely renovated, hosts a wide living area, 5 bedrooms, 3 of which are in ancient watchtower, and 5 bathrooms. Private land of 1.7 hectares and 4 agricultural outbuildings.
The Medieval Castle in Todi was built around the year 1000.
The panoramic location, with a magnificent view over Todi, was actually a strategic choice: the Tower of the castle was in fact part of a system of towers made from the alert function in the case of dangers for the city.
Over the centuries the building lost its function and in the late 90’s was purchased, fully renovated, restored with great attention and transformed into a prestigious and comfortable residence.
Todi is just 8 km away, while other important towns of Umbria as Orvieto (32 km), Perugia (50 km) and Spoleto (55 km) can be reached in less than an hour by car, Orvieto and Città della Pieve in just a few minutes.
The nearest airport is that of Perugia, 52 km away, while the international airports of Rome Ciampino (155 km) and Rome Fiumicino (173 km) are located approximately 2 hours by car.
Description of buildings
The property is composed by the castle of gross area (including also the old city walls) of 671 square meters, and four outbuildings of agricultural use of 35, 39, 40 and 50 sqm.
The castle was used as a charming home, is spread over several levels, of which the first three are connected with internal elevator.
The ground floor is the large living/dining room with fireplace, kitchen and a bathroom for guests.
The first floor, reached by internal stairs, with elevator or a separate entrance from the outside, is composed by a large living room divided by a double archway supported by one column.
Still on this level but with independent access from the inner courtyard, we find a private double bedroom with private bathroom.
On the second floor, the sleeping area comprises three bedrooms with private bathrooms and a study / library on two levels from which you can access the tower with a sitting room and bathroom on the third floor and a further bedroom with balcony on the fourth floor.
The four annexes of the surface of 35, 39, 40 and 50 square meters have destination to warehouse / garage tools and are only a short distance from the castle.

The Castle has been restored and is in excellent condition.
Inside we find terracotta tiled floors, wooden and terracotta ceilings, stone fireplaces, even in the rooms, and original wooden framing.
The property is surrounded by 1.7 hectares of land with an Italian style garden, partly bordered by high stone walls. Within it we find the classic elements of this garden type: hedges, fountains and pergolas that, thanks to the magnificent view, create an impressive scenic effect.
In a private position and facing south-west we find the swimming pool of 10x5 m size.

Please, find here the feedbak and review from one of the guests who spent a week to the Castle:
"The Castle and grounds were an extraordinary experience (so much so that we are returning next year to have more time there).
For one week, we had the Castle for just the two of us - choosing one very fine bedroom for sleeping and another (on the same floor) as a dressing room. Then we respectfully, but with pleasure, "explored" the remaining rooms of the Castle and the owners' furnishings - oil paintings, a large Flemish tapestry; fine antique wood furniture; a library of Italian and French books from the 1600s, 1700s, and 1800s; gilded framed mirrors; a vaulted brick ceiling; thick stone walls; large linen tablecloths; white china dishes and espresso cups; art books; and more. Walking barefoot on the ancient tiled floors was a pleasure. The deep stone spiral steps a welcome adventure. The views out each window wonderful and varied. The elevator a convenience with our luggage. We ate breakfast outside and viewed Todi at sunrise and in the changing light. We dined on the expansive terrace facing the cypress allee - and watched sunsets. The fountain in the formal side garden spouted and burbled. The swallows flew in circular sweeping patterns overhead. And we had total privacy and a unique, great experience living in the Castle. Most days, we were out and about exploring the countryside and Umbrian towns. The Castle proved to be a convenient location from which to visit Todi, Perugia, Spello, Montefalco, Bevagna, Assisi, Spoleto, Orvieto, and more. After each day trip, we always anticipated with pleasure returning to the Castle (ideally just in time for a shower, sunset, clinked glasses of wine, and a leisurely dinner). Until the next morning . . . when the sound of birds, the rays of light, the entire Castle and its grounds, and ITALY beckoned. With the Castle as our home"
