About The Experience
Rest your head in one of the most historic – and unique – accommodations in Umbria, just a few minutes away from a quaint local village. This ancient fortress, which now features well-appointed bedrooms in its pentagonal stone tower, combines original construction with modern amenities such as a pool, lovely alfresco dining area and a rooftop terrace that was once a guardsmen’s lookout.
Location Description

The villa is located near the tiny Umbrian town of Capodacqua, in an Apennine Valley between Fosso del Colle and Fosso della Valle di Collelungo. The town center – which is home to a restaurant, bar and grocery store – is a 5- to 10-minute walk away and can be reached on foot along a road with a pedestrian walkway. The medieval town of Assisi is 29 kilometers away. Assisi is home to San Francis birthplace, beautiful basilicas, several other churches and museums. Day trip destinations can include visits to Perugia, Spello, Monte Subasio park and Lake Trasimeno.

Perugia: 47 km/29 mi
Assisi: 29 km/18 mi
Foligno: 16 km/9.9 mi
Capodacqua Town Center: Approximately 400 m

Exterior Description
The grounds are housed within a fortress, which contains a chapel, former garrison (now home to a bedroom and the kitchen), pentagonal stone tower (now living and sleeping quarters) and a swimming pool (open May to October) flanked by sunbeds. There are grassy areas with tables and chairs. On the first floor, just outside of the kitchen, there is a terracotta terrace with sun beds, flowers, a barbecue and covered dining area with a table and chairs for 10.
