Full Description: Medieval Castle near Todi
A fascinating Medieval Castle near Todi dating from around the year 1000. Views over Todi. Completely renovated, with large living areas, 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms. 17 hectares and 4 outbuildings.
The panoramic location, with a magnificent view over Todi, was actually a strategic choice: the Tower of the castle was in fact part of a system of towers made from the alert function in the case of dangers for the city.
Over the centuries the building lost its function and in the late 90s was purchased, fully renovated, restored with great attention and transformed into a prestigious and comfortable residence.
