The oldest part of the Tower dates back to the 1500s, when it was used by the inhabitants of villa Viani as a watch tower against Saracen incursions. It is painted in its original red colour, while the facade of the top two floors has been left in expose brickwork.
The Tower, with its octagonal shape, rises on four floors.
Three apartments have been made out of it, two of which are on two floors, where predominately eco-friendly materials have been used, such as the interior cladding in natural stone masonry, the walls have been decorated with water based paints and all fabric is of natural fibres.
The apartments are between 45 and 50sq.m, each one having its own independent entrance; they are all different from each other, splendidly decorated and furnished with a particular attention to style, lighting and small detail.
A small vegetable garden allows one to get back in contact with the land , as well as offering the possibility of harvesting seasonal produce all year round; a swimming pool offers a relaxing place in which to spend quality time family and friends.
A unique property where past and present meet perfectly.
