About the property

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 (length is 160cm), a cot for a baby and large windows overlooking the roofs, the towers and the church steeples of the town. The bedroom can accommodate 2 adults, 1 child and 1 baby.

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 an air-conditioning and electrical heating 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.

Lovely place in a lovely town

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a super holiday in this property.

The tower was magical and the roof terrace even better. We felt like Lords looking out over the town from the roof. Everything needed was provided and we would love to go back sometime.

Sansopolcro is a lovely town and there were plenty of places to visit in the area.

A perfect place to discover Sansepolco

  • 5 of 5

An atmospheric and cosy tower on a charming street with great shopping and restaurants. Everything is spotlessly clean, the bed is comfortable and the roof terrace breathtaking! Andrea's communications were perfect, as was his welcome. He gave us lots of information so we made the most of our all too short visit. Hope to visit again.

A superb and unique vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation in the Old Tower was excellent and very romantic.

The location is unique.

Being in the heart of the town and, at the same time, in a so peaceful and ancient place is really amazing.

The apartment is very well done and clean.

Andrea has been very kind with us: many tips and suggestions for restaurants and places to visit were given.

The view from the top roof terrace is unbelievable.

Sansepolcro is also located in a preferred location to visit surrounding towns such as Anghiari, Arezzo, Cortona, Monterchi, Citerna, Caprese Michelangelo, Perugia, Urbino and Gubbio.

We strongly recommend this place and we hope to come back soon!

Superb location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is beautifully furnished and the views from the roof terrace of the town are gorgeous - the location is perfect, the bread shop is across the way and the lady who sells English newspapers a little way down the street. There are a lot of stairs and the climb would not suit everyone, but as long as you are prepared for that it is not a problem. It is quiet, comfortable and as good as they get.

Simply amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a couple of days in the apartment/tower during this summer and everything was perfect!

The apartment with its roof terrace is really amazing: the view from the top of the building is unbelievable.

The place is very romantic too: admiring the starry sky and the view of the city from the roof terrace at night is a priceless experience.

The quality/price is very good.

I really recommend this place!

A very good holiday in a wonderful place!!!

  • 5 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.

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.
