WITH BEACH weather hitting our shores once again today now could be the perfect time to book your very own live-in SAND CASTLE holiday home from just £22 per night, per person.
Castello sulla Spiaggia is a renovated castle that dates back to the 16th century and sits on the edge of a sandy beach in Torvaianica, Lazio, Italy.
Stunning images from outside the property show the castle sat just strides from the golden sand which it is separated from by a fence bordering its private garden.
Photographs from the interior show the gorgeous open and airy living space in addition to the seven bedrooms that sleep a total of 14 people.
The property is the perfect location for enjoying the region’s famous sea and sun and is situated in the heart of a nature reserve, adding to the already outstanding beauty of this location.
Inside, in addition to the seven uniquely decorated bedrooms, the property also benefits from two spacious living areas, a kitchen and five bathrooms.
The kitchen comes with all essential mod cons including cooker, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher and fridge whilst guests will also benefit from Wi-Fi access throughout the property.
The exterior of the castle features a stunning well-kept garden where guests will find a large outdoor space equipped with a gazebo and tables adjacent to the castle where you can spend hours sunbathing in total privacy or enjoying long evening meal times.
Alternatively, if you were to fancy a small change of scenery then why not head up to the first-floor terrace where guests can enjoy a fabulous sea view between two crenelated towers.
The friendly but discreet owner of the castle lives in an outbuilding and is always on hand to offer local expertise and advice during your stay.
You can get tips on the places to visit in Torvaianica, a frazione of the commune of Pomezia, which has plenty of bars, shops and restaurants for guests to enjoy.
There is also the amazing Zoomarine water amusement park just a couple of miles down the road, making for a fun day out for all the family with various rides and sea life experiences on offer.
If that wasn’t enough to keep you occupied, the property is less than 20 miles south of the Italian capital of Rome where you can tread the traditional tourist hotspots of the Colosseum or visit its famed fashion districts for a spot of shopping.
