Next to the house you'll see the English-style lawn (4,000 square metres), two hectares of parkland with veranda, a swimming pool (6 metres x 15 metres) with equipped pergola, and a car park.
Weekly rental ranges from €5330 to €6583. Included in the price is domestic help (five hours a day) for preparing breakfast and tidying the apartment, electricity, water, gas and hot water. Upon request and not included in the price are heating, mediaeval dinners offered in the caretaker's lounge, mediaeval music concerts in the courtyard of the castle or in the chapel, and a cook specialising in Umbrian dishes for your evening meals. Telephone charges and final cleaning must be paid for during your stay.
You'll find the villages of Morre and Collelungo, both of which have good food shops, just 1km away. 15 km away is Todi, with all kinds of shops. Sitting high upon a hill, and with a lovely mediaeval main piazza, cathedral, immaculate palazzi and a very good museum, Todi is well worth spending time getting to know. The piazza should be your starting point. Built on top of the old Roman forum, this square is flanked by the beautiful cathedral and mediaeval palazzi.
Tradition has it this town was built where an eagle dropped a tablecloth stolen from a local family - you'll notice the eagle and cloth on the town's crest - but it has certainly been inhabited for 3,000 years. Like so many of Tuscany and Umbria's hill towns, Todi has grown under the influence of a succession of rulers. The Etruscans, then the Romans, then Todi became an independent comune in the thirteenth century.
The delightful result for the modern visitor is a host of sights, dating back millennia. Thirteenth century palaces such as the Palazzo Del Popolo rub shoulders with the Romanesque-Gothic Duomo, mediaeval but with nineteenth century stained glass windows within.
There's lots more to see around the castle, including Orvieto, 35km away, Perugia 50km away and Assisi 60km distant. You can fly into Perugia Airport or to Rome Airport, 150km away. Spend days exploring the fascinating cities and hill towns of Umbria - then return to unwind in your castle retreat. [Region map]
