The Tower room


The most characteristic and unforgettable apartment is the Tower : settle in the upper part of the fortress, this square Keep, built in the early 10th century, is an extraordinary example of defending architecture of that time.

After a neat preservation, the Castle’s Tower became an intimate and lovable space. It is divided in 3 floors, each one 10 sqm large (can you imagine to sleep in a real Tower?).

The entrance of the room is on the midfloor, where is to be found a small living area with corner desk; then down the spiral stairs you reach the bathroom with a whirlpool bathtub.

At 15 meters height, from the mid-floor you arrive in the marvelous “love nest”: a tiny double room, with light pink chests frescoes where two big stone arched window give you the sight of the entire valley: just a sigh, and you’ll feel like sleeping back in the medieval age!

Climbing further up, all the way to the top you reach the open terrace: like the “garrisons”, supervising the valleys and the other Castles of the area you’ll look over a 360° landscape: here it come the second sigh of relief.

The connections between the three levels are a bit steep and tiny, because they have been created on the original openings (especially the bathroom one).

Although the Tower is not so comfortable as the other rooms of the Castle, it throws you back into a fairy tale!
