PRIVATE STRUCTURE Set in the absolute tranquillity of the Umbrian countryside, close to the banks of the river Nera, the origins of Podere Torricella are lost in ancient history. It was built at the end of the 18th century on the remains of one of the lookout towers of the Castello di Bufone but, almost certainly, the first construction was the site of a patrician villa, as evidenced by the discovery of a well of the Roman era. A careful and original restoration, completed in 2013, brought to light the old stones and, thanks to some reconstruction and to the right choice of furniture, bestowed on the house an intriguing and evocative medieval ...Read more

Additional Location Information

Podere Torricella is located in Narni, a beautiful medieval town amongst the most characteristic of Umbria: with its terzieri which divide the town in municipal divisions, the town square surrounded by the splendid palaces of civil power, the important cathedral housing old works of art, the churches of the mendicants with their important frescoes, like that of Piermatteo d’Amelia in Sant’Agostino, and the imposing Albornoz fortress which dominates the town still today. Narni should also be seen from inside, in its interior, to discover things that are more secret, mysterious and hidden: this is Narni Underground, a fascinating and evocative route, revealing hidden secrets, such as those kept in the halls of the Holy Inquisition. The surrounding territory still preserves important testimony of Roman times, such as the so-called bridge of Augustus, an impressive work of the first century, and the archaeological area near Otricoli, all that remains of old Ocriculum. Every year in Narni, from late April to mid-May, the Corsa dell’Anello (Race of the Ring) is held: the historical re-enactment of a fascinating joust of medieval origin. Just 6 km from the property is the village of Taizzano, with excellent typical restaurants and a few essential services (bars, food shops, etc..) and 10 km away, in Narni Scalo, are shopping centres, chemists, banks and a convenient railway station, well connected with the major towns of central Italy. Just 13 km from the property is the Magliano Sabina motorway exit which will take you to Rome in less than an hour.
