Fortezza di Spinola sleeps up to ten guests in a magnificently restored medieval fortress that also offers an atmospheric and romantic venue for weddings and other special events.
As you wind your way through olive groves and fields of sunflowers toward Fortezza di Spinola, you are already in view of its medieval watchtower standing proudly above the valley as it has done for almost a 1000 years. At the very top of this tower is an unbelievable honeymoon suite, with it's own private terrace offering unrivalled views of the entire region.
This property stands out for its ability to provide the upmost luxury without sacrificing the character of this ancient military fortification. The kitchen is decorated with a sea of copper pans and golden ornaments, the entire complex has been left with exposed stone work and original teracotta tiling, and baroque period furnishings carved from thick oak and walnut. Yet still, the building is equipped with under-floor heating, plasma TV's, orthopedic mattresses and a private swimming pool.
When you arrive you are met by a talented maid who will help you settle in and assist with whatever you require, and there is a whole host of other staff available should you desire a more catered experience. Why not take in the tranquil silence of the valley while you dine al-fresco, sampling the regional wine, olive oil and truffles that can all be specially selected and prepared for you.

Features

The complex consists of two main buildings connected to each other by a large terrace. Arriving by car, parking at the back of the tower, you get inside the court thanks to an opening in the wall that leads the guest on a central path that gives the chance to reach the church, the garrison and through stairs connected to it, the terrace which gives access to the tower.

The church thanks to the restoration got back to its original appearance seconding artificial plaster walls, which brought to light, in addition to the wonderful vaults with selected ashlars, also part of a fourteenth-century crucifixion under restoration.

The garrison consists of two levels connected by an internal staircase connecting: the ground floor, with room for disabled guests accessible by a branch of the central path can be covered without architectural barriers and the first floor which houses the kitchen.

The room, characterized by high ceiling with wooden beams, is decorated with antique bench parade, decorated with typical plants of the Baroque period, with a cabinet / wardrobe made of walnut and very thick oak. The bathroom, covered with old tiles of late eighteenth century has all the comforts and responds to the needs of the disabled.

All rooms are equipped with autonomous heating and cooling for the independent management by the host to get the favorite temperature thanks to under floor heating and fan convectors, shower stalls are relaxing with a pressurization of the groups that emit hot or cold water under high pressure, plasma TVs and all are equipped with both a pay per view and free channels, mattresses are all orthopedic while sheets and towels are of high quality; Internet access is free, thanks to wireless controllers.

The kitchen can play in wintertime, the function of a dining room, thanks to its large size, with its collections of kitchen utensils in copper and ceramics, displayed on the walls which create a warm atmosphere. Getting out the kitchen, you enter the terrace with terracotta jars, chairs and tables for external use, useful to enjoy the cool of the typical summer in the evening and can be used as a solarium during the day.

From a wooden staircase, you enter the door of the tower that for the past defensive purposes it is very small and has been made of finely carved stone blocks which highlight the period of construction. The environment that you access is dominated by the huge fireplace flanked left and right by a couple of church benches of late '600. From this room, a wooden staircase leads to a relax room with Internet Point, TV, telephone, stereo, furnished with sofas and chairs suitable for reading, relax and be together, considering the large number of seats. Going up to the fourth floor you enter the first bedroom of the tower, equipped with all amenities mentioned above, characterized by sober furniture of late ‘700. Going up to the fifth floor, you enter the second bedroom, very similar to the first for sizes and furniture differentiated primarily by roof slab, in this case with a barrel vault of brick and stone, while of wooden beams in the other.

Going up to the sixth floor you enter the third bedroom, housed in what was the recovery room from the bad weather for the soldiers on guard in the tower. Although of modest size, in height and extension, it has a special charm as a result of the access to the walkway external terrace Guelph battlemented, which offers unsurpassed views of the castle and the valley.
