From wood-beamed ceilings, to pigeon-holes transformed into delightful look-outs over the medieval hill town of Narni, owner Leonardo has lovingly restored this residence, accentuating the property's antique details. Once a 15th-century 'dove tower', this elegantly remote stay offers easy connections to nearby towns, Todi, Spoleto and the Eternal City of Rome, so you can experience all the comforts of southern Umbria at your own leisure. The villa's beautifully natural and idyllic setting makes it an exquisite location to host and celebrate unforgettable days and family retreats. Dine on the panoramic terrace, dip in the serenity of the swimming pool, or marvel at the unique architecture that surrounds you. Encounter warm Umbrian hospitality at its finest.
This Umbrian getaway encourages you to revert back to the natural pace of the countryside. The sound of cooing doves can still be heard at the very top of the now renovated Dove Tower, transporting your mind and soul to the very heart of the charm and beauty of the hillside town of Narni. The landscaped swimming pool and panoramic terrace offer unprecedented views across the hamlet, for both peaceful reflection and relaxation.
Surrounded by blossoming Umbrian countryside, this family-run bed and breakfast is a rural dream. Offering superb views of the medieval town of Narni, named after C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia, this villa is perfectly situated to enjoy views from a distance or for exploration up close, with towns in easily accessible distance. Discover a Benedictine church, a Roman cistern, an aqueduct, a Holy inquisition courtroom and a jail cell, all within discoverable radius.
With a romantic vibe weaved throughout the seven suites, all showcase the original and intricate architecture of the dove tower, with the upper rooms boasting original terracotta bird ledges. All rooms are named after their unique character and views over the gardens so that you're transported to the very heart of Umbrian hospitality that radiates throughout the villa.
Although, there is no formal restaurant within the property, the hotelier will be delighted to make dining arrangements with the small family owned restaurants in the area or organise meals on the terrace using locally sourced produce from the surrounding fields. Enjoy a daily buffet breakfast with sumptuous homemade cakes and Italian coffee under the Umbrian sun as it rises blissfully over the villa.
