While Carpini Valley heats up under Italy’s scorching sun, the surrounding hills rise towards the refreshment promised by altitude. Not far from the natural reserves of Lake Trasimeno and Mount Cucco, historic Perugia and its surroundings exude serenity today after centuries marked by royal conflicts. A vestige of this past, Tower Guardialina now contemplates a peaceful landscape where crops and forests flourish.Learn more
Caressed by lavender and olive trees, its 12th century stone walls are extended by four terraces where a 25-metre swimming pool, sun decks, a shady outdoor living room and dining room offer unbeatable views over the whole valley. At the heart of this six-hectare property where fruit trees mingle with oak trees, the recently renovated tower is characterised by a vast range of spaces, protected from prying looks.
Once you step inside, a huge living area – heated in winter by the fireplace, cooled down in summer by the thick medieval walls – can host up to twenty guests. The latter also have access to their own living rooms in each of the seven suites in the residence. Here, white walls and visible stone urround light-coloured sofas in contemporary designs – a marvellous marriage of the vestiges of yesterday and the comforts of today.
In five of the Tower’s suites that all open up directly to the outdoors, the bedroom is located on a semi-open mezzanine level, taking advantage of the fine volumes of the local architecture. In the two remaining suites, night and day areas are found on the same level under medieval arches that act as an invitation to intimacy. In each of the seven suites, spacious bathrooms blend the charm of stone and contemporary fittings, with showers and large bathtubs.
From east to west and from north to south, the whole of the Perugia province will delight guests as they look out of the windows and from the terraces of this former watchtower. No doubt that Tower Guardialina will persuade guests to go off to conquer this region of Italy as Bonaparte once did, seduced by the history and nature of Umbria.
