Torre Valnerina, a unique 600-year old watchtower in Umbria close to Spoleto and Assisi.
Umbria, Italy’s green heart and sibling of close-by Tuscany, has preserved its nativeness, art treasures and outstanding cuisine. Torre Valnerina is situated in panoramic setting on a mountain ridge in a side valley of famous Valnerina and offers breathtaking views towards the mountains and the valley below.
The extensive restoration respecting the demands of the Antiquities and Monuments Office lasted a few years and was finished in 2009.
The tower’s living area stretches on four floors. The building was thoroughly and elaborately restored, incorporating the historic preservation agency’s guidelines and features very-well preserved walls in natural stone. While restoring, the tower’s statics were renewed, taking contemporary guidelines into account. An extension in natural stone adds considerable flexibility.
The surrounding hamlets are approx. 800 – 1000 m away. Access to the property is via 300 m private road. Shops with basic supplies are in the vicinity.
Well-thought-out interior design created two independent apartments with separate entrances. Now, the property is ideal to be used for holidays or permanent habitation with friends or guests. The current layout offers an eat-in kitchen on the ground floor, a living room with fireplace on the first floor and a bathroom (designed around the old water cistern), all in the tower’s lower part.
The second apartment comprises a living-/bedroom with fireplace on the third floor, a bedroom, eat-in kitchen and a bathroom on the second floor as well as a laundry/storage with a second shower on the first floor. Several terraces around the tower offer panoramic views in all directions.
