Overview

Wedding Venue Pool Ideal for Kids Pets Welcome Walk to Village All Bedrooms En-Suite Ideal for Parties Stag/Hen Allowed

Fortezza di Spinola sleeps up to ten guests in a magnificently restored medieval fortress that also offers an atmospheric and romantic venue for weddings and other special events.

As you wind your way through olive groves and fields of sunflowers toward Fortezza di Spinola, you are already in view of its medieval watchtower standing proudly above the valley as it has done for almost a 1000 years. At the very top of this tower is an unbelievable honeymoon suite, with it's own private terrace offering unrivalled views of the entire region.

This property stands out for its ability to provide the upmost luxury without sacrificing the character of this ancient military fortification. The kitchen is decorated with a sea of copper pans and golden ornaments, the entire complex has been left with exposed stone work and original teracotta tiling, and baroque period furnishings carved from thick oak and walnut. Yet still, the building is equipped with under-floor heating, plasma TV's, orthopedic mattresses and a private swimming pool.

When you arrive you are met by a talented maid who will help you settle in and assist with whatever you require, and there is a whole host of other staff available should you desire a more catered experience. Why not take in the tranquil silence of the valley while you dine al-fresco, sampling the regional wine, olive oil and truffles that can all be specially selected and prepared for you.

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • The hilltop location and old stone floors can be tricky on foot.
  • A car is quite a necessity if you want to make day trips to the many wonderful surrounding towns.

Region

Umbria has best of Italy to offer: rolling landscapes, wine, beautiful towns and villages, olive oil, expansive lakes and the food, glorious food. A holiday here can be as lazy, active, cultured and as delicious as you like.

This region is scattered with pretty, picturesque villages, while the area has a rich cultural heritage. From thermal pools to medieval cathedrals and olive oil museum, Umbria has an intriguing amount of history to discover.

Both Rome and Florence are accessible within a day trip, while the closest towns of interest would be Orvieto, the old town which is a fascinating series of winding streets, piazzas and a colourful weekly market. 

History lovers will be spoilt - from the first century Roman amphitheatres to the twelfth-century duomos, to the fourteenth-century hilltop fortresses,  the glut of remnants from the medieval and Bronze Age that punctuate the region is impressive.
