Property description


In a hilly position, not far from the Oasis of Alviano, in the walls of the "Castello del Poggio", stone farmhouse with private garden and a splendid view over the valley and Lake Alviano. The property is on three floors: on the semi-basement level there is direct access to the garden and here, a large room currently used for storage, a bathroom and a boiler room. On the first floor, there is a large living room with fireplace, dining room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom; on the second floor there are three bedrooms each with ensuite bathrooms.

The private garden of the house is an ideal place to spend relaxing moments in complete privacy. At the end of the garden, there is a ruin that can be restored and extended.

Built by the Normans in the 1034 AD on a former th century Byzantine fortress, an intricate system of residential buildings and fortifications which have survived the centuries. The Poggio Castle was designed by architect Antonio da Sangallo the Younger.
There are three defence walls in this special castle: entering its large wooden door, there are seven houses, probably dwellings of the ancient mercenaries.
Through another gate you enter the second circle where the old church used to stand and there is a little old vinyard. A third circle encloses around a core building culminating in two ancient towers. In its simple architectural lines its panoramic position, its elegance, its almost secret gardens and majestic rooms make this a magical place.
