PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Torre di Paciano stands at 492m above sea level, dominating the amazing natural scenery of this area between Tuscany and Umbria, which stretches from the magnificent, well-kept garden, with its effulgent vegetation, to embrace the plain that extends in front, with Lake Trasimeno in the foreground, and then to end up on a corollary of numerous small villages that surround the property; at night, seen from the poolside or from the highest point of the tower, they form an alluring constellation of lights. Its walls narrate a thousand-year old story: the Torre di Paciano, part of the old Castle of Paciano Vecchio, was originally a watchtower located strategically along the historic route that connected Perugia to Chiusi and, over the years, was subjected to many, documented ...PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Torre di Paciano stands at 492m above sea level, dominating the amazing natural scenery of this area between Tuscany and Umbria, which stretches from the magnificent, well-kept garden, with its effulgent vegetation, to embrace the plain that extends in front, with Lake Trasimeno in the foreground, and then to end up on a corollary of numerous small villages that surround the property; at night, seen from the poolside or from the highest point of the tower, they form an alluring constellation of lights. Its walls narrate a thousand-year old story: the Torre di Paciano, part of the old Castle of Paciano Vecchio, was originally a watchtower located strategically along the historic route that connected Perugia to Chiusi and, over the years, was subjected to many, documented dominations. Today, linked to an 18th century building which forms the central nucleus of the house, it is an historic, old-style residence suitable as a country retreat, with a collection of antique furniture and impressive chandeliers that dominate the high ceilings and spacious living areas on the ground floor and which fit in perfectly with the architectural style of the building, which is completed by a dear little consecrated chapel, suitable for wedding ceremonies. In the park surrounding the house is a large lawn for children to play on, set up areas for alfresco dining with a large barbecue and various seats in antique stone, shaded by old oaks and surrounded by the scents of the undergrowth. The property stands just outside the tiny borgo of Paciano, in a quiet, discreet location even though it is less than a kilometre from the village. From here, short and easy trips will take you to all the major towns in Umbria (Perugia, Orvieto, Todi, Assisi) and Tuscany (Montepulciano, Cortona, Pienza, Siena): a unique full immersion in a land rich in history, art and culinary traditions, that will satisfy the eyes and palate of curious, enthusiastic travellers. Additional amenities include: baby cot, sky decoder with card, iron and ironing board, american coffee machine, fans in the bedrooms, mosquito screens in the bedrooms and in the kitchen, complimentary toiletries, hairdryer, moka.

I stayed at La Torre with a large group of family and friends in August 2014. The building and grounds were as spectacular as we had hoped. The agent and the owner were a delight. We had fresh veggies from the garden left at the...More
