There is a place between Spoleto and Foligno: it is a castle on a hill dating back to the XI century, just like those you might find in fairy tales. The castle has a triangular wall perimeter and still stands with its three towers - one of which is the stunning pentagonal bell tower belonging to our special property, the deconsacrated church of Saint Benedict with its frescoes dating to the mid 15th century. It is worth mentioning that the hill the Castle sits on is right above the Tempietto del Clitunno, a World Heritage Site of UNESCO. The property has a potential like no other - there is a separate apartment, and the same space on the other side of the Church which could be a second apartment or together with the church, all one and the church itself with its amazing bell tower could be used for events, ceremonies or as a "heavenly" beautiful living space.
At present there is a kitchen, living room, bathroom with mezzanine bedroom adjacent to the church. From behind the altar there is the access to the bell tower where you can go up to the very top and admire the entire valley below extending into the horizon. On the other side of the church there are two other rooms to be converted as pleased.
The entire estate was completely rennovated to high standards and really it is just waiting for some-one to come and take care and love it as the present owners always have.
