KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
One can date the villa "La Castellaccia" from the architecture of its unique tower, which was constructed around the year 1000 AD. Subsequently, several additions have been built around the tower. The main entrance archway is of "serena" stone and is inscribed with the date 1614 and the interior private chapel, dated 1700, gives one the feeling of bygone centuries. The Villa is situated on the gentle slopes of the Tiber valley, on the border of Tuscany and Umbria.
The gated entrance leads you into the grounds of this elegant Villa, now remodelled into two separate wings. One wing accommodates the owner and a two room bed and breakfast. The remaining wing of the Villa is completely self-contained and whilst the architectural features and antique furnishings reflect the centuries old style of the Villa, it possesses modern bathrooms and central heating. A walled park with mature trees and its own vineyard surround the estate, offering great privacy. A swimming pool lies just below the villas terrace and is for the exclusive use of guests renting the self-catering wing of the villa.
