The small tower can accommodate two people comfortably, nestled in the Umbrian and Tuscan countryside, in a protected area for the natural scenic beauty. The splendid view of Lake Trasimeno will be the setting worthy of your holiday.

The space

The tower is created out of the restoration of an old abandoned stable situated in the centre of a small countryside hamlet called Sanguineto. This place takes its name from the famous bloody battle of 217 BC fought between the Roman army and the Carthaginian army (led by Hannibal). Today this area is classified as one of outstanding natural beauty, where traditional farming methods are still very much in evidence, the major crops being olives and wine grapes. The property have been luxuriously finished using traditional building methods and materials combined with the latest technology. It has its own independent liquid propane gas (LPG) central-heating system, with the boiler located outside the building, as well as its own electricity. A pergola, and a private garden giving out onto the surrounding landscape, offering a magnificent view over Lake Trasimeno, complete the building. The tower has two floors, one bedroom, a living room with kitchenette, one bathroom, private garden, and pergola. Swimming-pool.

Guest access

The tower and the private garden with sun loungers, barbecue, pergola with table and chairs, reserved parking space. The pool is shared with the other guests of Borgo Sanguineto.

We absolutely loved our stay at this tower! The view was especially amazing and the tower itself was perfect. It was such a special little place to stay, there was also such good amenities for us to use for cooking and bathroom essentials. The garden also has an amazing pool with a beautiful view but unfortunately was closed as it was october. We would definitely return if we ever visit again and 100% recommend this accommodation. The host were also very sweet and were lovely to meet!

The Tower is beautiful! The setting is wonderful too. Michele provides everything you need to have a comfortable stay. The location also provides good access to suitable roads for travelling to see the sights and towns.

What a beautiful setting and fabulous accommodation-everything we had hoped for when we booked. We would highly recommend a stay at Michele's place. Lovely extra touches with cake and items in the fridge. We've already told several of our friends it is well worth a visit.

Fantastic view over Lake Trasimeno and a large garden area to yourselves. The tower was well equipped inside. There were lots of activities possible nearby and we hired kayaks and bikes to explore the Lake. The Terontola Cortona train station is a 20 minute drive away and allows travel further afield - we went to Florence which is an hour and a half. The friendly cat who pays regular visits to the garden is a bonus!

This creative conversion of what was a storage tower has everything two people need. Michele' instructions how to get there are excellent. There us plenty of info about things to do and places to visit, albeit little about the Tower itself..but Michele or his mother Anna/wife Katia are readily to hand. Eggs oil and wine from next door agri-turismo, fine and mostly private pool (may be used by people from nearby apartments), lovely outside sitting area and absolutely stunning views. Wonderful for relaxation. A&O supemarket 3km away, many restaurants close by. There is air conditioning upstairs. Very good wifi. Large bed. Katia left cake, milk, coffee, tea for our arrival.
