Relax among olive groves and green hills, alongside a fortress of the 15th century!
This cottage has a kitchen, bedroom, living room with sofa bed and bathroom, a patio and garden.
The property includes a swimming pool opened May to mid October.

The space

Beautiful scenario, cozy and spacious apartments built in typical regional architecture. Silent and peaceful neighborhood, good food and relax!

Guest access

You can use the big and beautiful evergreen lawn, the indoor swimming pool (only in the summer season) and taste the best of Umbrian cousine (but many other dishes) in our restaurant that is considered among the best in Terni province. We host also weddings (there is a chapel inside the Fortress) and other events.

Interaction with guests

I can be at La Fortezza only occasionally to show you the misterious building and telling you the story of the Templars, Sergio the Ghost and how my ancestors took the Fortress more than one hundred years ago.

Other things to note

I want to stress a couple of things after some complaints we had recently: please do not book our stay if you don't like nature (including small and inoffensive animals going around the garden that sometimes can visit your appartment or make same noise during nights like little birds). We do not use any poisons or cage or whatever, this place is intended to be uncontaminated and original "agriturismo", so if you like fake places this is NOT the place to look for.

My cousin and I stayed for a week and it was paradise - so quiet, so beautiful, so peaceful. We loved stargazing and eating figs and nuts from the trees and playing with Laghi, Rossella's pup! Although the indoor pool, which is also where the internet connection is located, is in another building from the cottage, it was still a lovely time and not a tremendous inconvenience. Also steps away was the restaurant, where we had one of the best meals of our lives! Give a kiss to Laghi for us, Rossella! See you next year ;)

We had a wonderful time at the cottage and it was exactly what we wanted and expected. Nature, calm, beauty, relax. No noise other than that of birds. My friend and I (with two kids) really enjoyed ourselves, and it was great to have a swimming pool, ping pong table and table football to entertain the kids. They also enjoyed themselves picking delicious fruits from the fruit trees in the garden. There is also an excellent restaurant specialized in fish and seafood. I definitely hope to come back to the cottage very soon!

The castle cottage was fantastic! It is ideally located to explore Umbria-- 30 minutes to an hour drive to many different ancient and lively fortress towns. Every day was a new adventure! The cottage was very well appointed and we were taken very good care of.

My brother, his wife and their three daughters had a fantastic time at Antonella's place. Antonella is a very pleasant host and her place is just perfect. The flat was clean and tidy and the garden surrounding the flat is really great, with various fruit trees and quiet places to rest. There was also a swimming pool on the floor below the flat which made the girls incredibly happy. We warmly recommend Antonella's place for families with kids.

We did enjoy the region the house and the swimming pool. Large garden area for kids to play and discover nature! We were lucky and got a private amazing visit of the fortezza by the very kind owner! We recommend!

Petite maison indépendante avec une belle vue aux alentours. Elle contient l'essentiel pour un court séjour. Juste deux petits points négatifs : la literie n'est pas très confortable et la douche pas très pratique. Mais le jardin était rempli de noix et de figues délicieuses ! Nous avons passé un super séjour.

Da quando è nato il piccolo Andrea sono un pendolo tra Roma dove vive la mia famiglia e Avigliano che è dove c'è la Fortezza, bellissima azienda agricola acquistata dal mio bisnonno a inizi '900. E' un posto incantevole, romantico e silenzioso dove trovo subito l'equilibrio con me stessa e la serenità, almeno finchè non torno inghiottita dalla grande metropoli!
Ho pensato che un posto così bello doveva essere il più possibile patrimonio di tutti così oltre ad affittare apriamo la fortezza al pubblico alcuni giorno dell'anno (in genere il 16 febbraio e il 16 agosto) ma anche se ho un pò di tempo qua e là ve lo posso mostrare!
Nell'impresa (in tutti i sensi) di seguire questo posto bellissimo mi aiutano i miei collaboratori Rossella, Leonardo e Martino nonchè le mie irrefrenabili sorelle Francesca e Cecilia e i miei genitori !
Spero di potervi incontrare e conoscere e che appreziate il posto !! e che mi scrivate come siete stati se non possiamo incontrarci ! ci teniamo tutti molto che stiate bene e vi rilassiate ! a presto !
