About the property

120 Sq. Meters, Ideal For Family Group Or 2 Couple Of Friends

The tower of the doves is one of the 4 independent apartments situated inside a padronal villa, La Palombaia, dating back to 1700. This villa was built around a pre-existing tower of the 1600's, which originally housed doves in the upper floor.

The internal areas are arranged around some splendid walled courtyards. The restoration work was finished in march 2006, respecting the aesthetic quality and spaces of the original building.

THE TOWER OF THE DOVES is composed of a kitchen, a sitting room, two double bedrooms, two bathrooms.

It is perfect for a family or two couples of friends that want to mantain their own privacy (it is divided in two units, each with his own entrance, olny the kitchen is a real common area).

The apartment has a little private courtyard and a garden, equipped with deck chairs, summer umbrella, table, seats and a barbecue; private parking.

In another courtyard there is a solarium space, a round pool and vegetable garden.

There are bicycles for the use of guests; near La Palombaia there is a good cycle track from Spoleto to Assisi and many other country or mountain paths.

It is also possible to have meals starting from 15 euros per person (local dishes produced olny with our extravirgin olive oil).

About Cinzia Pauselli

After I graduated I started working in promoting the region and its own produces. After the restoration work of the villa I decided to rent holiday homes.

My companion helps me, most of all looking after our son.

Cinzia Pauselli purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Cinzia Pauselli chose Spoleto

This is my family's property. Here I was born and I grow up.

What makes this apartment unique

We restored the villa and his barn respecting the large spaces and their own character. You'll not find here anything false or cloying, but genuine antiques joined with the comforts of modern life. Also, some rooms are decorated with the antique furniture and paintings of great value, thanks to the work of my uncle, a good painting restorer now retired.
