PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Torre di Paciano stands at 492m above sea level, dominating the amazing natural scenery of this area between Tuscany and Umbria, which stretches from the magnificent, well-kept garden, with its effulgent vegetation, to embrace the plain that extends in front, with Lake Trasimeno in the foreground, and then to end up on a corollary of numerous small villages that surround the property; at night, seen from the poolside or from the highest point of the tower, they form an alluring constellation of lights. Its walls narrate a thousand-year old story: the Torre di Paciano, part of the old Castle of Paciano Vecchio, was originally a watchtower located strategically along the historic route that connected Perugia to Chiusi and, over the years, was subjected to many, documented dominations. Today, juxtaposed to an 18th century building which forms the central nucleus of the house, it is an historic, old-style residence suitable as a country retreat, with a collection of antique furniture and impressive chandeliers that dominate the high ceilings and spacious living areas on the ground floor and which fit in perfectly with the architectural style of the building, which is completed by a dear little consecrated chapel, suitable for wedding ceremonies. In the park surrounding the house is a large lawn for children to play on, set up areas for alfresco dining with a large barbecue and various seats in antique stone, shaded by old oaks and surrounded by the scents of the undergrowth. The property stands just outside the tiny borgo of Paciano, in a quiet, discreet location even though it is less than a kilometre from the village. From here, short and easy trips will take you to all the major towns in Umbria (Perugia, Orvieto, Todi, Assisi) and Tuscany (Montepulciano, Cortona, Pienza, Siena): a unique full immersion in a land rich in history, art and culinary traditions, that will satisfy the eyes and palate of curious, enthusiastic travellers.

Interior

The house is formed by a main body with two floors and the tower, with a further two floors. The main entrance on the ground floor leads into the living area with the rooms connected one to the another, a typical built-in kitchen with 2 marble sinks and dining area with direct access to the outside, an elegant dining room connected to the living room with original fireplace and direct access to the garden. This floor is completed by a bathroom with shower and laundry area. A stone staircase leads up to the first floor with two single bedrooms sharing a bathroom with shower, a double bedroom with queen-size bed and ensuite bathroom with tub, and another double bedroom with king-size bed and ensuite bathroom with shower; the latter communicating with a study/reading room (with access to an outside terrace) and with the stairs leading to the upper floors of the tower, each with a double bedroom with private bathroom. A wooden staircase leads up to the second floor, consisting of a double bedroom with king-size bed and ensuite bathroom with shower. On the third floor is the last double bedroom, also with ensuite bathroom with shower and connected via a flight of stairs to the top floor of the tower, with two single, joinable beds. This room has two French windows leading outside to a long corridor going round the tower with a panoramic, 360° view.

Park

The property covers an area of about 3 hectares, in part covered by accessible woods while the rest is made up of the park around the house, ensuring privacy and tranquility. Just past the entrance gate is the well-kept garden with lawn and various trees - pines, holm oaks, cypresses, medlar and figs - a lovely holly bush and lots of vivid blooms, particularly roses and hydrangeas, which transform the garden into a colourful “living area”, equipped for relaxing in at any time of the day, with a shaded dining area where you can sample the typical dishes in the open air. All along the garden, with orchard, vegetable garden and a long pergola shaded by vines for strolling in the shade, outdoor sitting areas have been set up, in the coolest and most secluded places where you can just sit and relax. In the vicinity of the pool area, in a strategic vantage point overlooking the pool and the surrounding area with the neighboring villages, another dining area with barbecue has been set up.

Swimming Pool

The pool area is located in a well-delimited area of the garden, placed on a slightly lower level than the tower and in a beautiful panoramic position. It is reached across the lawn and down a flight of stone steps. The pool measures 17x9 m with a depth that varies from 90 to 220 cm. Large steps on one side, or a metal ladder, lead into the water It is lined in clear PVC with a stone border; sunbeds and umbrellas are set out along the perimeter paved in terracotta and on the large manicured lawn that stretches to a terraced area with table and chairs and barbecue, ideal for poolside meals. Next to the pool is a cold-water shower and down a short flight of steps is a bathroom with shower, changing room and kitchenette with sink and refrigerator. The pool is purified with chlorine and is open from the last Saturday in April until the first Saturday of October.
