This former medieval fortress has dominated the valley of Capodacqua di Foligno in Italy's central region of Umbria since the 1300s. Today, La Rocca Antica has become an exclusive residence, offering luxury in the heart of antiquity.
The castle, surrounded on three sides by the original fortress walls, is located in the heart of Umbria in the valley between Fosso del Colle and Fosso della Valle di Collelungo. The fortress was built on a hilltop to protect a then strategically important route to Colfiorito. Through its history, this fantastic space has passed through the hands of many noble families as a summer residence.
The fortress is centrally located for those seeking expeditions beyond the castle walls. The castle is located just minutes from the center of town. Additionally, Florence is just 200 kilometres; Rome 170 kilometres; Bologna 280 kilometres; and Perugia a mere 47 kilometres. For those wishing to take refuge within the castle walls, there is a relaxing sundeck, a furnished gazebo, a gorgeous pool, and beautifully maintained grounds.
This magical estate can welcome up to ten guests. A restored, pentagonal Guelph tower houses four of the five bedrooms. From each bedroom, guests can enjoy a breath-taking view of the valley below. All the bedrooms, decorated to emphasize the original architecture, contain double-beds, air-conditioning, plasma screen televisions, and en-suite bathrooms. In addition, the estate includes a fully equipped kitchen, a cosy living room, a tower with a scenic terrace, a sundeck, and a swimming pool. In addition, there is a consecrated chapel on the estate, with vaulted ceilings and a 14th century crucifix.
Savour the fairy-tale atmosphere of this 14th century in this historic castle surrounded by the lush Umbrian hills of central Italy.
