Castle for sale in Umbria

Have you ever wanted to own your own castle in Italy? Today we saw a stunningly located ruin of a 13th century castle for sale in Umbria, built in an octagonal shape, with 360° views over the Tevere Valley all the way to Assisi and Monte Subasio. The castle has 10m high walls and various buildings to be recuperated, including a 400sqm farmhouse and 2 churches. The castle has been ruin for over a century, and was further damaged by Allied bombing during WWII, when the position would have afforded a remarkable view of activity in the valley below. The sale comes with the whole hilltop and is has a private access road. A grand Italian property restoration waiting to happen!
