This Medieval Castle is For Sale with Engel & Völkers Assisi-Spoleto
“Prestigious medieval castle recently restored with large indoor and outdoor spaces, suitable for ceremonies, receptions and tourist accommodation.
The Castle of Sant’Apollinare is a small village of high medieval origin that preserves its feudal structure intact. It is located in a landscape of high quality a few kilometers away from Perugia and Lake Trasimeno. Its medieval origins are visible in the crenellated keep and the two courtyards, probably built to defend the city of Perugia. The part of the village in sight is the entire east wing of the castle which extends for about 1,575 square meters on five levels and consists of 54 rooms including bedrooms and suites, 11 bathrooms, three kitchens and various boardrooms of various sizes. A large terrace of 60 square meters offers a spectacular view of the panorama below. There is also an independent apartment of about 200 square meters which is accessed by a Guelph crenellated tower, an integral part of the property.
Externally, the property includes a comfortable flat garden, adjacent to the entrance to the castle, of 2500 square meters with a rainwater collection tank and a large parking lot in a lower and therefore less visible position. In the part below the parking lot, a wood with secular trees completes the property.
The Castle of Sant’Apollinare is part of a network of fortified buildings which, in the Medival era, were built to defend the city of Perugia. The traces of that era are preserved in an excellent way in this carefully restored fortress and brought back to its ancient splendor that is well suited to various uses: residential, tourist accommodation or intended to host events and receptions.
The convenient and quiet location is the added value: halfway between Perugia and Lake Trasimeno, it is only 40 km from Assisi and an hour and a half from Rome.
