ENCHANTING HISTORICAL MEDIEVAL TOWER ON THE MAIN STREET OPPOSITE THE CATHEDRAL

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Sansepolcro - Medieval Tower of Uguccione

Amazing terrace with breathtaking and outstanding views over the city center

The Tower of Uguccione, an early 13th century Condottiero, is in the center of Sansepolcro with its entrance on the main street, just 50 meters from the central “Torre di Berta” square.

The Tower is the perfect place to spend an unforgettable holiday in a real medieval tower located in the heart of Sansepolcro.

You enter the apartment through a medieval door.

On the first level are the kitchen/dining room and a bathroom. A large bedroom studio is located on the upper floor with a double bed, a sofa bed for a child and large windows overlooking the roofs, the towers and the church steeples of the town.

The terrace on top of the tower offers a stunning 360-degree view over the Tiber valley. It is also the perfect spot for tanning under the Tuscan sun, and having aperitifs and alfresco dinner.

A free Wi-Fi Internet connection is available.

The house has a new heating and air-conditioning system and provides all the necessary amenities for a perfect summer and/or winter stay.

The Tower of Uguccione is the perfect place to spend an unforgettable holiday and, at the same time, to enjoy the elegant city boutiques, shops, bars and restaurants.

The Tower of Uguccione della Faggiola is very close to the central “Torre di Berta” square and is one of the oldest standing structures of Sansepolcro (XIII century). It is an integral part of the harmonious setting that enables you to feel like you’ve returned to a distant past. Reaching the penthouse in the old, hidden tower is the culmination of this unique experience; you can almost hear the sound of the brave knights courting beautiful dames.

The apartment has been completely renovated in 2009. It was refurnished with piece of furniture from the historic period which the building belongs to.

All the details have been selected to allow you to feel like you had come back to an ancient past but, at the same time, to access to all modern comforts and facilities.

The Tower of Uguccione, being located in the main street (50 meters from the central square), allows you to enjoy all the highlights of Sansepolcro without the need to use the car.

At the same time, in case you reach Sansepolcro with your own car, unlimited free parking lots are available at walking distance from the apartment.

The peculiarity of the apartment is, without doubt, the extraordinary and spectacular terrace on the roof of the apartment. It represents a unique and matchless place. From the terrace it is possible to dominate the city center of Sansepolcro and the Tiber valley.

From the terrace it is possible to overlook the beautiful façade of the Cathedral and the other surroundings historical buildings.

The terrace is equipped with comfortable deckchairs to enjoy the warm Tuscan sun in a unique and amazing place.

The terrace is particularly suitable to have an alfresco aperitif and dinner while overlooking the red roofs, the towers and the church steeples of the town, absorbed in the peace and stillness of a sunset.

I live in Sansepolcro and I’m fond of it. I spend most of my free time in the town.

I work with an Italian company involved in aviation security as sales engineer and I have many opportunities to see new places during my business trips.

I always do my best to offer an outstanding service and quality to my guests and I’m very happy and satisfied when I receive congratulations from them at the end of their stay in my property.

Andrea Antonelli purchased this apartment in 2009

The apartment was purchased by my parents around 20 years ago.

Then, we took care to renovate it completely in 2009 and make it an unbelievable and extraordinary place to live.

We were able after such long restoration works to see realized what we often thought was only a dream. Now we can offer to the expert and educated travelers an unique and unforgettable experience and we are proud of it.

A VERY GOOD HOLIDAY IN A WONDERFUL PLACE!!!

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I have spent four days during this summer in the “Tower of Uguccione”.
The apartment was exactly as described in the listing and everything was in good shape, clean and in order. The owner has been very kind with us and gave us all the information and support we needed during our stay.
A very big advantage of the house is its location that is wonderful: just few steps from the Cathedral and “Torre di Berta” square. Exiting from the main door of the building you are in the main pedestrian street (Via XX Settembre) which is plenty of good restaurants, bar, pubs and boutiques.
During our stay, we had the possibility to enjoy alfresco aperitifs at sunset in the roof terrace: the atmosphere was so nice that we would have spent the complete night up there. I just mention that the “Tower of Uguccione” is not for elderly people with physical disabilities since it is on top floor of a medieval building with no elevator.
However I want to recommend this amazing and unique place.
Nowadays it is very rare to find similar and so fascinating apartments. We had the possibility to spend a really romantic holiday in an old charming tower.
We hope to come back soon but with one difference this time: we will stay longer.

WHAT TO SAY: OUTSTANDING AND EXTREMELY GOOD!!

  • 5 out of 5
We were spending our holiday in Florence when we decided to explore the remaining part of Tuscany. By chance, we have found the “Tower of Uguccione” and immediately we fell in love with the place. Few days later we were there and the best part of our holiday was about to begin.
Everything in the apartment was as we expected or even better.
The overall quality of the apartment and available services were excellent. The price was affordable.
We never had before the opportunity to spend a vacation in a so old, fascinating and peculiar place as the Tower: that was for us a so nice experience that we would repeat for sure.
It was really worthy to spend part of our holiday in this medieval Tower.
The view from the terrace was extraordinary: overlooking Sansepolcro city center from a different perspective is something to be experienced once in a life.
No doubt: we would recommend this place!!!

Car: not necessary

Sansepolcro is a medieval town located on the beautiful hills of the Tuscan Apennines on the Umbria border.

Walking along the ancient streets of Sansepolcro or sampling its food and wine will be unforgettable experiences. You can also visit its churches and museums where you will admire some of the most famous works of “Piero della Francesca”, the Renaissance painter born in Sansepolcro.

Sansepolcro is easily accessible by AutoRoute E45. It is only one hour and fifteen minutes far from Florence airport and three hours from Rome.

Sansepolcro location is a perfect starting point for an endless list of discoveries, like Arezzo, Siena, Florence, Cortona, Urbino and Perugia while the mountains offer great hiking trails.

A particular and enchanting event in Sansepolcro is the “Palio della Balestra” which takes place in the central “Torre di Berta” square.

“Torre di Berta” square becomes the arena for the historical competition between the crossbowmen from Sansepolcro and those from the close town of Gubbio. Both teams wear Renaissance costumes, inspired to “Piero della Francesca” paintings. The challenge has a very old origin: it is already mentioned in a document from 1619.

During September, it is also easy to find along the ancient streets of Sansepolcro local foodstuffs like olive oil, wine, jam, honey and handicraft.
