Wonderful medieval stone tower for 12 guests, surrounded by a lush rose garden and immersed in the peace of unspoilt woods, just 1.5 miles from beautiful medieval Spoleto.Relax by the pool or explore Umbria with its treasures of art, nature and food.

The space

“Torre del falco”, “The hawk’s tower”, is a beautiful, ancient stone tower located on the outskirts of the medieval town of Spoleto, a place full of history well known all over the world for its charm and beauty as well as for the many cultural events, first among all the “Festival of Two Worlds”.
This ancient stone tower has been fully restored in the past years, with a careful eye to maintaining the original looks. The interiors have been totally redecorated in the winter 2008, and a new swimming pool 56 x 16.5 ft has been added to the property.
The special flavor of this ancient building makes of Torre del Falco one of the prime locations in the holiday house rental landscape of Spoleto.
The Tower can accommodate up to twelve people in its beautiful spaces. A large, fully furnished kitchen is located on the first floor; you can decide to take your meals inside or to choice the gazebo on the side of the pool. The beautiful, bright sitting room takes the whole second floor, with its comfortable sofas, gorgeous fireplace and panoramic windows overlooking the pool and the surrounding woods. Each of the 3 upper floors is composed by two double or twin bedrooms and a bathroom, all offering relaxing views of the surrounding country, for a total of six bedrooms and three bathrooms. On the top floor you will find the finest place of all: a cozy kitchen opening on a gorgeous terrace commanding a 360 degrees view of the surroundings. Among plenty of colorful flowers, shaded by the gazebo, you can have your breakfast, lunch or afternoon drinks while admiring the amazing views, or dine in the candlelight enjoying the smooth breeze of the night.
The property also includes two other beautiful, independent accommodations: The Nest and The Falconer, for two and four guests, giving the chance to accommodate parties of 18 guests on its grounds.
Chaise-longues, sunbeds and large sun umbrellas are available around the pool for your hours of relax and suntanning.
Bikes are available if you wish to try yourself for a spin on the hills or into town.
A 20 minutes walk or 5 minutes drive away there is Spoleto, a beautiful, charming medieval town internationally known for the Two Worlds Festival. Spoleto has a tradition in History and art which goes back to the ancient Roman civilization. You can spend time visiting the castle, the many churches, one of which is included in the UNESCO world heritage, exhibitions, getting lost in the narrow streets punctuated by artisan shops, discover the Umbrian tastes and flavours in the typical, cosy restaurants, and end the day attending one of the many cultural happenings typical of this town. And when you get tired of human artefacts, you can just walk for hours on end in the surrounding woods and mountains, immersing yourself into the beautiful nature; go for river rafting along the Nera river in beautiful Val Nerina, or for horseback riding along the mountain paths.
You can also explore the many breathtaking towns within less than 30 minutes by car: Bevagna, Trevi, Spello, Montefalco and Foligno; or in one hour you can reach Assisi, Orvieto, Deruta, Perugia, Todi, Cascia and Norcia. Rome is 1h 20’ away by train, and Florence is just two hours by car.

We spent a wonderful week at the tower with its rural views, large salt pool and fascinating history. The pool especially enjoyed be the teens in our party. Spoleto has lots to offer in in terms of architecture, history and ice cream. The house is well kitted out for large parties and very clean.

Beatrice is a wonderful host. Relaxed and welcoming. Beatrice helped us with lots of information and advice. The accommodation is tasteful, comfortable and generous. The swimming pool is lovely and large enough for everyone to enjoy. Spoleto is a very beautiful and special place, a perfect base for enjoying the very best of Umbria. We're already planning a return trip.

We were two families of a total of 10 pp that visited "Torre del Falco" in august 2015. Our kids range 8-17 yrs. The Tower is a fantastic place and Beatrice is an even more fantastic host. The house is very comfortable and the different floors makes it easy to stay several families with good privacy. The garden and pool area leaves nothing to wish for, beautiful flowers, a very useful outdoor dining place and a very large and fresh pool. It is a stretchy walk (or 5 min drive) down to Spoleto but well worth it. The town is great with interesting things to see, good restaurants and is very beautiful with roman-midieval architecture. The surroundings are nice for walking, biking and of course sight-seeing. Beatrice was very helpful and a fantastic person. She helped us organize as well catering, tips on excursions as well as fixing practical stuff that we needed help with. I give the Tower and Beatrice my warmest recommendations for families or anyone else. You will have a great time. We already long to go back!

Words almost literally can not describe how fantastic this property is. The views, the pool, the quiet, it was perfect. We were 7 adults and none of us wanted to leave. Beatrice is an excellent host. She was extremely responsive and helpful - the best kind of Airbnb host. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat. It really does need to be experienced.
