Nestled amid woodland and on top of a hill, the tower, built in the local vernacular stye, can be seen for miles. It is as much a part of the local landscape as the surrounding medieval villages.

The two floors above are both en suite bedrooms reached by a glass lift. Accessed also via stairs from an adjacent tower. On the top floor, recently used as an artists studio there are panoramic views over the surrounding countryside. You can see the Alps in the south west.

There is an adjacent en suite bedroom with a balcony overlooking the lower courtyard. Stairs lead down to the large cantina which is ideal for storing wines. Opening out into the lower courtyard you will find an underground passage leading to the towers’ dungeon. Also there is access back to the upper courtyard.
During winter months the castle is heated by a wood pellet burning Baxi boiler situated in the cantina. Additionally there is a backup gas boiler. In the kitchen the Rayburn can also seperately heat the kitchen radiators, if required. Hot water is provided by a combination of a gas boiler and solar panels on the roof.
