What you should know about this house

Amenities and special features of this house

The Castello del Poggio in Guardea is one of the oldest castles in Italy. It is perfectly preserved and stands out from its dominant position in a context of particular beauty, above a protected area, bordering the wildlife oasis of the lake of Alviano. The Castle was built for defensive purposes around the year 1000 on a pre-existing Byzantine fortress.
In the following centuries, interventions were made to enlarge the original nucleus (composed of the central and Male body) which gave it the current rectangular shape and the creation of the real treasure of the castle: a central patio with loggia and stairways that is attributed to the prestigious mind of Antonio da Sangallo il Giovane. Many inscriptions and awards confirm the high value of Castello del Poggio, whose historical events are linked to names such as those of Princess Donna Olimpia Pamphili, Federico I Barbarossa, Carlo V, Cesare Borgia and Galileo Galilei.
Today this complex develops into three walls that enclose various living spaces, comfortable for residential and representative uses. The set of spaces is however harmoniously organized thanks to the recent renovations carried out in a workmanlike manner under the direction of the Superintendency of Perugia.
This combination of fortified and austere elements, together with the harmonious and sweet lines, gives an undisputed charm and unique characteristics to this complex, hard to find elsewhere.
It is also a comfortable and charming location for various types of events: concerts, conferences, seminars, weddings.

Further Properties: Location and surroundings of this property

The strategic position in which the castle stands explains the reason why it has been the subject of many disputes over the centuries: it is in fact located in southern Umbria, near Lazio and Tuscany, very close to Rome but also to all the most important locations of central Italy such as Assisi, Orvieto, Florence, Todi, Gubbio. The etymology of the town of Guardea suggests how, since ancient times, this place was an excellent sighting spot. Today its native defensive function is found in the tower, to be restored, which should be raised by a further 9 meters. The harmonious "Dimora della Signoria" is contrasted by the delightful "houses of the village" arranged in double order along the walls and the severe "Fortress" with the houses of the Guarnigione. The castle is immersed in a three-hectare park with oak woods, where it is possible to collect precious mushrooms, truffles and wild asparagus.
Geographically, the castle is 20 km from the Orvieto A1 motorway exit from the North and 20 km from the Attigliano exit from the South. The Railway Station can be reached in 10 minutes from the Castle for local trains, 20 km instead for the Orvieto railway station.
