This XIII century fortified house with its 700 m2 and 17 hectares of enclosed land enjoys a unique location. Although in times gone by it was used for defensive purposes, in recent centuries it has always been inhabited and recently underwent extensive refurbishment. The atmosphere of this unique residence is one of peace and privacy. The patios around the property treat visitors to a stunning view of the area and the communal parts of the house are spacious and well-furnished, blending an historical atmosphere with modern comfort. Visitors will enjoy admiring the star-studded skies on clear nights or relaxing by the pool listening to music.

We stayed at this house in May half term and had a brilliant time. The owners couldn't have been nicer and were there to show us around on arrival. The house, views, pool and everything was as wonderful as we hoped. We can also recommend the water park, 5 minutes away (only at weekends off season).
We also had two very nice meals in an Argentinean restaurant Molino Nuove on the main road 15 minutes drive away.
Highly recommend this property (although loathed to tell everyone as it wont be available if we want to go back )
