The building itself had been derelict for over 45 years and part of it was in a state of collapse. It comprises of three medieval towers, which had originally been individual palaces dating back from the 1500s. After acquiring all the relevant permissions; a complex process since it is listed as a Grade A listed monument (The same grade as the Coliseum in Rome), the restoration process itself took less than a year to complete; The result is beautiful, sensitively restored home that clings to the edge of the hill.
