Seven comfortable, characteristic apartments in the medieval hamlet of Proceno, whose origins date back to the Etruscan era. The town of Proceno (once on the border between the Papal States and the Grand Duchy of Tuscany) is in the area where Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio meet. A short distance away are the spectacular landscapes of the Val d'Orcia, with its many towns and hamlets, some of which are also renowned for their thermal baths (San Casciano dei Bagni, Bagno Vignoni, Sorano, Saturnia, etc.). The apartments in the old hamlet sit in the shade of the historic 16th fortress, which has been completely renovated and today houses cultural events. Below the town walls there is a large park of about 2 hectares and a pool at guests' disposal. The apartments have welcoming interiors, and each offers a fireplace and a small, private equipped outdoor space.
This unique property is directly managed by the owners, who in addition to the apartments and the fortress also have an original, characteristic restaurant-wine bar inside of the town (during the summer season the restaurant moves to the park, next to the pool). The castle organizes music festivals and events dedicated to Proceno's history along the Via Francigena (that connected Europe to Rome).
This property is ideal for those looking for a comfortable place to stay in town that has the outdoor spaces of a house in the country.
