Description

Go through the entrance of this magnificent property, step on its brick-and-stone staircase and you know that your expectations will be exceeded. You can't help but be dazzled by the atmosphere that reigns here. Recently and completely restored, this magnificent castle, once crumbling, is now living again its previous medieval grandeur. Perched on a hilltop and offering sweeping views of the Umbrian unspoiled countryside, this 12th century fortress has taken on all the allure of a welcoming manor house. Only 20 minutes from Perugia, the luxury castle offers tastefully decorated rooms with fine antique furniture and sumptuous materials, which are an oasis of comfort and tranquility. This large 17th century villa complex is one of the most ancient private homes on the island of Capri, full of history and a lot of personality, about a 20 min. walk from the town center. This villa, built on ancient Roman cisterns, lies below the ruins of Villa Jovis, which belonged to the Emperor Tiberius. This villa is accessed from the private gate through a walkway of Doric columns and stairs leading through the garden up to the entrance of the house. The entire villa is furnished with antique wood furniture and is adorned with Moorish niches, several antique pieces of a great cultural and historical value, marble statues, and ornaments completing the style of the house. The restoration of the castle was as authentic as possible and this mission is reflected also in the furniture of the living spaces on this floor, decorated with period art, tapestries, architectural fragments, furnishings and fabrics to give the castle an original vibe. The great hall, typical room in a castle, features an antique open hearth fireplace, 18th-century French armchairs upholstered in leather, a table draped in a luxury fabric, and the tapestry is 17th-century Flemish. The dining room has three big windows that allow the natural lights to enter and it showcases an impressive 18th-century Spanish table; a cozy fireplace completes the room. The impeccably maintained five hectares estate that sits atop a hill offers dramatic 360-degree views of the surrounding countryside. Outdoor panoramic lounging is also guaranteed from two spectacular terraces, and sun-bathing in style on the deck of the private heated swimming pool, lined with Bisazza tiles. Dining al fresco is possible in one of the two panoramic terraces of the castle where a stone BBQ is also available for succulent meals from the grill. The splendor of the bygone days has been authentically recreated in this elegant and luxury residence. The property is secluded in tranquil parkland and it is the ideal starting point to explore Umbria and Tuscany during the day and enjoy your exquisitely decorated spaces full of serenity the rest of the time.
