The country house, located at the foot of the Apennines but just 1 km from the historic center of Spoleto, which can also be reached on foot, dates back to around the middle of the 1300s. It was born as a military watchtower and later used as a noble residence and then for agricultural use. This historic building in Spoleto is unique in the whole Umbrian region, as it has the peculiarity of having two twin towers. A stay in the Testaccio holiday house will be like taking a leap into the Middle Ages.
