The origins of Torre Almonte date back to the 12th century, when it was built as stronghold to protect the city of Todi. In the middle ages, Todi had a complex system of fortified structures which formed the city's primary defense system and Torre Almonte is just one of a series of old castles and blockhouses which now form part of the architectural heritage of Umbria. Recent subject of an extensive restoration project, carried out in accordance with the strict criteria established by the Italian Historical Society, the ancient watchtower has been transformed in stunning period residence, made all the more appealing by the use of stylish contemporary decor and the careful integration of ultra modern technology.

The original nucleus of Torre Almonte is its imposing square tower, within which the rooms of today's residence have been created. Whilst maintaining an organization of spaces which dates back to the 19th century, Torre Almonte's interiors have been given a surprisingly contemporary feel, thanks to a choice of sleek designer furnishings and artworks which perfectly compliment the rooms' age-old exposed stone walls, terracotta floor tiles, time-weathered wooden doors and romantic open fireplaces. Stylish guest accommodation is provided in two suites and two apartments, each of which affords breathtaking views of the Umbrian countryside.

Torre Almonte sits perched on the top of a small hill, from where it gazes out over the property's secular park. Here, the owners have painstakingly restored the 19th century formal gardens and introduced numerous varieties of antique roses. In the heart of the garden, there is a charming little 18th century chapel, in which religious services are still performed to this very day. The garden's panoramic terrace provides the idyllic setting for Torre Almonte's splendid designer swimming pool and solarium.

Tastings of local wines and gastronomic specialties are held in Torre Almonte's large dining room, located on the ground floor of the residence. Those wishing to learn a little more about the culinary traditions of Umbria have the opportunity to participate in one of the cooking classes held directly in Torre Almonte's kitchens.
