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 - â‚¬500 a month
