"Historical townhouse with lavish contemporary interiors.” - Reviewed by Deborah
If you have ever wanted to know what it would feel like to live in a medieval town, now is your chance! Villa Castelmuzio is a unique opportunity to stay in a townhouse that is quite literally part of the original city walls protecting the medieval town of Castelmuzio.
Contrary to what you might expect of an historical home, the interiors of this historic property are lavishly contemporary with a unique mix of antiques and modern furnishings from all over the world. This home successfully challenges the conventional rustic style you find elsewhere in Tuscany and brings an urban edge to the property.
You might think that staying in the thick of a medieval town would be noisy, yet here, the only sound to disturb your tranquility will be birdsong, the clock tower and whatever music you decide to play. Thick stone walls and modern windows ensure your contact with the outside world comes on your terms.
The location is certainly one of the highlights of this home with plenty of options for great dining in nearby villages and towns. Likewise, you can enjoy fabulous cycle routes, tailored wine tasting experiences and more.
This stunning home is particularly suited for people who have been to Tuscany before and want to try something unique or for those who want to be in walking distance of a village. One can easily imagine living here for longer periods and becoming part of the close-knit local community. Honeymooners will also find it a suitable love-nest complemented by Castelmuzio’s quaint and romantic ambiance.
