Country Home - Restored in Todi: Castello Medievale a Todi - XSUF |€ 2.200.000 - $2,390,080 - £1,903,220
The Medieval Castle in Todi was built around the year 1000.
The panoramic location, with a magnificent view over Todi, was actually a strategic choice: the Tower of the castle was in fact part of a system of towers made from the alert function in the case of dangers for the city.
Over the centuries the building lost its function and in the late 90’s was purchased, fully renovated, restored with great attention and transformed into a prestigious and comfortable residence.
Todi is just 8 km away, while other important towns of Umbria as Orvieto (32 km), Perugia (50 km) and Spoleto (55 km) can be reached in less than an hour by car, Orvieto and Città della Pieve in just a few minutes.
The nearest airport is that of Perugia, 52 km away, while the international airports of Rome Ciampino (155 km) and Rome Fiumicino (173 km) are located approximately 2 hours by car.
