    Views from the tower

    September 25, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    And the reality of living in a 12th century castle converted into 21st century living quarters:
    - septic toilet
    - uneven tread and rise of stairs is disconcerting
    - the sloping ceilings in certain rooms mean you bump your head a lot (ie: I stoop to sit on the loo and by the time I finish my pee I forget to duck when I stand up and bang my head on a ceiling beam)
    - the very steep ladder-like stairs to our bedroom mean it is too dangerous to go to the loo in the middle of the night

    BUT, the setting is unreal, the village is cute as and the views are incredible.

    OK, this is our "castle". The tower to the left is the one where the other photos are taken on top of. The floor below that is the bedroom Craig and I are sleeping in (ie: part of the tower). The big main doors are remote controlled and we drive through that to park in the square on the other side. The window to the slight left above that is the bedroom Glen and Jeff are sleeping in, the one to the right with the white curtains is in the main bathroom, and the one with a person in it (Jeff) is in the dining room area where Kate is sitting in a previous photo.
