Set on a panoramic and sunny hilltop, the Tower of Montanaldo is a refined and substantial country house in Umbria, just off the art city of Gubbio. The original structure, a medieval watchtower dated XI Cent. of which rests are still clearly visible, eventually turned to a farmhouse in the Renaissance period. Nowadays it is a sophisticated example of architectural recovery thanks to the greatest attention of the owners to valorize and use the original stones and materials. A meticulous and work of art renovation with the goal, perfectly achieved, to create authentic warmth and atmospheres of an Umbrian farmhouse.

The dépendance, a typical independent old farmers tiny home (of about 750 sq ft) features a living room with kitchen corner and bathroom, on the ground floor, and a bedroom with direct access to the outdoor equipped area on the upper level.
In perfect condition the property offers astonishing features such as the original antique stone claddings, as well as the doorways and architraves; the ceilings with solid wood beams; the handmade terracotta floorings; the reproduction of both antique bathroom fittings and the knobe and tube wirings .
