Are you looking to rent you own private and exceptional castle? Here it is! Castello del Falco is an authentic and impressive castle dating back to medieval times. The sturdy 11th century tower is definitely its most striking feature and can be seen from the far off distance. It is situated at a hilltop and surrounded by the smaller buildings of its own quaint little hamlet. The stones with which it all has been built have been laid many centuries ago and are silent witnesses to times long gone by. The atmosphere is truly unique and somewhat magical, with arches, passageways, a little old church, staircases left and right and with beautiful roses ubiquitous throughout the gardens.
During a full scale renovation the complex has been transformed into an utterly charming and welcoming accommodation. It has been divided into six independent units, each with a private entrance, living with fireplace, kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms, with a maximum occupancy of 22 people. In the main building there are various communal areas: a spacious fully equipped kitchen with adjacent a lovely dining area and sitting room with a both grand and great fireplace. Just out the door there is a covered porch with a large dining table, looking out over the heated pool which itself enjoys a view of the surrounding countryside. The BBQ and wood oven are conveniently located around the corner. The former church can still be used for weddings or other ceremonies, and the vibes that still linger in the air from gatherings that have been taking place there for hundreds of year are sure to have you experience some goose bumps.
The interiors are a remarkable mixtures of lovely antique furniture and modern fittings. From the ancient tower to the romantic bedroom with en-suite jacuzzi in the Priest's house, each unit is unique and original. Beautiful beamed ceilings and terracotta tiled floors blend in seamlessly with the natural materials and the soft colors used.
This very exclusive property is located in the northern part of Umbria, in the triangle between Arrezzo, Umbertide and Lago trasimeno. Close to both Tuscany and le Marche it is easy to explore the treasures of all three provinces during easy day trips.. Perugia, Assisi, Cortona, Siena, Florence but also endless lists of small picturesque villages and vineyards are nearby and waiting to be explored.
At Castello del Falco the entire property is always exclusively yours, units that will not be occupied by your party will remain empty. Visitors have expressed nothing but enthusiasm for this very special place!
