The medieval castle of Castelluccio (literally “little castle”) lies on the summit of a hill on the La Foce estate. The precise date of its foundation is not known, it was probably built in the XIth century. A large, old wooden door opens onto a stone ramp and a pretty courtyard with arches, which in summer are decorated with a profusion of hanging geraniums. Two apartments, Tartaruga and Etrusco, are reached from the courtyard. They were delightfully restored in 2001 with some old family furniture, and enjoy beautiful views of the hills and woods that surround the castle.
The Tartaruga apartment really gives you the feeling of living in a castle. The outer walls are more than a yard thick, the windows look out over the hills or the courtyard, and the terrace provides a cool, romantic rest from the sun and wind without. But none of this detracts from the modern comfort of the facilities and the practical disposition of the rooms.
