Antique tower located in the heart of the village of Forio, on a small promontory with a dominant view of the characteristic historic center and the sea. The strategic place has been chosen for the construction of part of this wonderful property, characterized by this watch tower, called Costantina, built in the mid-sixteenth century, with the aim to protect the coast from the attacks of the pirates. The rest of the property, on the other hand, consists of a villa on 3 levels: on the ground and first floor one can find the main residence; on the basement floor, with an independent entrance, there is a two-room apartment with kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. The property has an enchanting garden of about 900 square meters with sea viewing, featuring fruit trees, cacti, prickly pears, hydrangeas, olive trees and a splendid stone colonnade. There is a driveway and with a private parking for 2/3 cars. The tower entrance from the garden takes place through a small external portal in tuff stone that leads onto a paved step, until one can reach a priceless terrace overlooking the sea and the historic center. The Tower, with a circular surface, is on 2 levels: the ground floor opens with a wonderful living room. The kitchen, although small, is well conceived in its lateral position, set in the wall and totally open to the living room. The sleeping area, reachable via a wooden staircase, is located on the upper floor and has a wonderful bedroom with a hemispherical wooden ceiling. A small bathroom equipped with shower completes this floor. The villa has a lovely living room completely paved like the rest of the house, with splendid hand-painted majolica. From the living room it is possible to admire through the arched window, the entire elevation of the Tower with the iconic masonry crown. On the mezzanine there is a double bed with a bathroom. The livable kitchen adjacent to the living room is simply fascinating, the hob is made of masonry and is covered with wood and majolica. The environment is very bright thanks to the 4 windows, painted in an elegant British green that overlook the external wooden pergola, where we find a dining table. A further double bedroom with en-suite bathroom is located on the upper floor, and can be reached via a stone staircase from the kitchen. The property is just 2 steps far from the center and the tourist / commercial port where there are connections with the mainland. The nearest beach, Chiaia, is 1 km away, while the bay of Citara with the beach and the renowned Poseidon Thermal Park is about 2 km away.
