Torre Avellana is ancient rural tower that, with its cellars, has been transformed into an unusual and characteristic dwelling. From the windows of Torre Avellana you can overlook ranging from cultivations of hazelnuts right up to the Cimini mountains. By walking down ancient lanes and tufa stone stairways, in two minutes you can reach the historical city centre of Viganello, where you can visit numerous places of tourist interest.
The characteristic dining room has been dug out of the tufa stone and is equipped with a table large enough to host 20 people, has a wood-burning oven and a brickwork fireplace.
The rooms are equipped with private bathrooms and have a wide panorama of the valley, the ceilings have chestnut beams and a suggestive wall which is partially dug out from the tufa stone. ‘Persiana’ shutters make rooms chillingly cool in summer. The rooms have an internal access from the Tower with a spiral staircase and an independent entrance coming in from a characteristic pedestrian lane.
