Castello della Trama
Set in the rolling Umbrian hills, this medieval fortress has been fully restored to 21st century standards while maintaining its unique historical charm
Castello della Trama is an impressive property. Set in four hectares of olive groves and rolling countryside, the ancient hilltop fortress houses a private chapel, a new outdoor pool, lush gardens and a medieval tower within its beautifully restored walls.
Architectural features include carefully repaired stonework, wooden beams, original fireplaces, frescoes, arches, vaulted ceilings, Guelph crenellations and even a lookout from the top of the tower with panoramic views over the surrounding landscape.
The tower originally dates to the late 13th century and a sensitive renovation has resulted in five bedrooms, one per floor with a bathroom each. A modern kitchen with an ancient soaring ceiling and original cotto floor is on the raised ground floor, leading out to a large paved terrace.
The property, with its charming private chapel and pretty gardens, is currently run as a boutique hotel. It would make an exceptional private house and there is scope to convert a further 570sqm within the castle walls into living space.
The castle is well placed for exploring the green heart of Italy and is an exquisite blend of ancient history and modern comfort.
