NEW OPENING 2020
The apartment is located on the first floor of the main building of the Manor and offers a kitchen, living room with sofa-bed, bathroom and a master bedroom: it owes its name to the Watchtower that was originally used for the medieval fort and which today is instead only an architectural element of the external fortification walls.
The external part of the old tower is still clearly visible from the kitchen window of the apartment which overlooks the wall boundary but also from the inside in the living room area: extraordinary detail is the ancient support capital of the tower which at the epoch was an integral part of the fort and of the medieval walls themselves which are still present in the master bedroom.
The rustic tuscan masonry kitchen consists of a grit sink, a large countertop and an induction hob: the refrigerator and the dishwasher are located in the wooden built-in kitchen where you will also find pots, microwave, kettle, toaster and everything you need to prepare a beautiful tuscan dinner! The beautiful period showcase masters the kitchen which overlooks the surrounding countryside with a picturesque window.
The Living Room, owes its name to its historical function as a room, then adjacent to the medieval tower, where the racing pigeons were kept. The location is extremely striking today given the high ceiling characterized by chestnut beams and terracotta bricks: the living room is very bright thanks to the window overlooking the courtyard. The large leather sofa, comfortable to enjoy the TV corner, becomes a king sofa bed if necessary to use the living room as a possible second bedroom: the comfortable size of the sofa bed makes it perfect for resting both adults and children . The living room is embellished with old prints and a centenary cupboard where, for centuries, bread was put to rest and which is a typical element of rustic tuscan houses.
The Messenger’s Room
The master bedroom is a location of extraordinary beauty: in the Middle Ages it was the residence of the Messenger responsible for sending the racing pigeons. The large four-poster bed masters the room directly obtained in the exposed stone fortification walls. You can notice the overlap of different types of stone to confirm the construction of the fortification walls of Vicopisano in several historical periods: the first layer dates back to the first Roman settlement.
The play of lighta and shadows of the wrought iron lamps create a magical and evocative atmosphere that envelops its guests taking them back in time: sleeping here is truly a unique experience, indescribable in words! A period wardrobe of great value embellishes the location together with a characteristic period trunk and sink under a ceiling of exceptional beauty with a crossing of ancient chestnut beams.
