When in Rome do as the Romans do…..but while in Umbria, why not discover life in a medieval town? Castel Rinaldi, founded in 1161, offers visitors a true view into the past for those eager to experience a piece of Italy’s historic castles. Pope Clement VII stayed in Castel Rinaldi on March 30, 1533 on his way to Rome from Bologna. This castle village still remains a fortified medieval town. Castel Rinaldi has undergone extensive restoration in order to preserve its cultural importance for future centuries. Its recent preservation activities include the discovery of an ancient fresco which lay hidden within the town’s church. The “Chiesa” or church in Italian, sits a few steps from the castle tower. The tower served as a defensive structure in Castel Rinaldi's rich history.
The castle tower for your vacation rental has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The family room boasts a brick vaulted ceiling brilliantly crafted centuries ago and restored to its original form. Every effort has been made to restore the tower to luxurious standards, while maintaining the charm and authenticity of its past. Two very large working fireplaces warm the kitchen and family room. The kitchen adorns the charm and character of ancient times while integrated with today's conveniences. It has a dishwasher, gas appliances, refrigerator and freezer, a custom carved travertine sink, as well as, a fireplace which has the ability to work as a wood burning grille. Natural light fills the tower enhancing the beautiful hues of the stone walls, tile flooring, wood beams, and iron railings. The guest sleeping areas enjoy new, custom appointed bathrooms with oversized showers, bidets, heated towel racks, and tumbled marble tiling. Two TV’s with VCR’s and satellite access will keep you linked with the 21st century during your trip into one of Umbria’s historical treasures.
The castle tower (il Torre Uno) awaits your visit in order to introduce you to Italy's past.

Amazing Authentic Italian Experience
Amazing Authentic Italian Experience
My wife and I had the great pleasure of staying at Castel Rinaldi this past year. We wanted to immerse ourselves in the Italian culture and this property, in this beautiful area was the best experience of our trip. Set within a quaint medieval village in the Umbrian countryside Castel Rinaldi has all the modern comforts imaginable. The furnishings and decor are luxurious and the view from our bedroom was magnificent. We stayed over a Sunday and the church bells rang out that morning adding to the charm of the experience. The kitchen is fantastic and it made me want to cook on vacation! The location is only a short drive to the beautiful town of Todi where we enjoyed the most scenic sunset of our trip, overlooking the valley just off the main square. My wife loved the sidewalk cafes and local shops. We found a great restaurant just on the outskirts of town called Ristorante Gardinia Blu which was populated almost exclusively with locals (I think we were the only ones who spoke English). We also did short day trips to Orvieto and Spoleto which were easy to get to from Castel Rinaldi and made for a wonderfully diverse trip. Castel Rinaldi is truly a hidden gem in Umbria and we are already planning our next trip. This time we will stay longer and perhaps I really will cook this time!!
