Full description:

A wonderful opportunity to escape the cool, Northern European, climate and spend time in your own castle, just east of Rome. In the lovely village of Gagliano Aterno, this castle, dating from 1328, commands views over the rooftops and dominates the entire valley with its beauty. The castle is unique, as it is one of few in Italy which is private and so well preserved. Architecturally, the castle is particular because of its irregular shape. It is possible to imagine how knights and princesses have walked here, as there are protective walls, towers, arrow slits, balconies with beautiful frescoes and a large banqueting hall. In the public areas there are activities for both adults and children with various games, tennis and swimming pool.

Before the castle took its present form in 1328, the original castle had a distinguished lodger in Francesco D'Assisi. Today many Italian pilgrims choose to follow the same walk through Italy, as Francis of Assisi did. At the castle, however, they cannot gain access as it is private and closed to the public.

All common areas are superbly maintained by the castle's caretaker These include a church, the great hall, large living room, games room, sauna, tennis court, swimming pool and a large park for walks. In addition there is a guest room that is available for rent from the residents' association for potential guests. The castle garden has several entrances for cars and ample parking.

The castle is used as a "Residence" for 16 families, and there is a strong sense of community amongst the families. They make a point of eating together in the beautiful palace garden or in the great hall. There are associated services available for residents, too, including cooking, cleaning and laundry.

The apartment itself is at the top of the castle which can be accessed by elevator. The apartment is very special because it is over several levels and includes a high loft with fireplace, living room/bedroom and a lovely view from bifora window. Additionally, there are 3 other possible bedrooms, two bathrooms, a beautiful walled kitchen well suited to the style, and a living room and dining room with high ceilings.

The apartment is sold furnished.

Service and maintenance fees for the communal areas - €500 a month

About Abruzzo Property Italy, London

What we do
We help you realise your Italian property dreams by providing exceptional, friendly and personal service. This is delivered in the selection of suitable properties to meet your initial brief, followed by arranging property viewings. Our network of specialists will guide you throughout the sales cycle with financial, translation and legal services until purchase completion.
An optional, post sales property management package, provides ease of mind while you adjust to your new culture and environment. We are always focused on your priorities and needs.
Our properties
We work with key residential and licensed agencies in Italy. Each of our associates brings to us a large and varied portfolio of properties. This allows us to provide you with the widest selection of properties in the Regions of Abruzzo and Molise and across all price ranges.
We market these properties on our website and Rightmove which gives them exposure to both a UK and worldwide audience. From a holiday home on the Adriatic coast to a permanent house in the historic town of Penne, we can find your ideal property. We can also suggest restoration projects and land allowing you to build your own.
Our services
We market property for sale in Abruzzo and Molise on behalf of our network of Italian estate agents, all of whom are registered with the FIAIP (Federazione Italiana Agenti Immobilliari Professionali). We also market property for sale on behalf of private property owners who wish to deal with us directly rather than through an Italian Estate Agent. We market property through a combination of our website, Rightmove and more recently social media channels such as Facebook and LinkedIn.
Once we have been contacted by a client who wishes to purchase a property, our sales team analyse our clients’ detailed property requirements before conducting a thorough search of all the properties for sale in Abruzzo that might suit. The next stage in the process is normally a trip to Abruzzo and Molise to view a selection of properties. This is a very important part of the purchase process. Not only do we advise on property viewings but we also facilitate the entire viewing trip with recommended places to stay and areas to explore.
Once a property is decided upon, we leverage our local network of professionals to assist our clients through the process of obtaining tax certificates, opening bank accounts, validating property deeds and local planning consent, through to the necessary translation of documents, obtaining the best possible currency rates for the purchase transaction and the organising of mortgage arrangements if required.
