For centuries a private residence, today the castle is open to the public, offering accommodation in its bedrooms, and in apartments in the farmhouses of the estate, which boasts more than 100 hectares of vines, olive groves and woods.
Its fortunate position, lying between Florence and Siena, makes it a perfect base for excursions throughout Tuscany.
Staying at the castle means enjoying comfort and refinement blended with the warmth of a family home. The atmosphere is welcoming and informal, all the rooms of the castle are open to guests, who can enjoy some reading in the drawing room, take the tea in the cloisters, or the garden, and enjoy an aperitif in the shade of the pergola after drying off in the sun at the poolside.
Eleven large, comfortable but individual rooms remain unique, each with its own narrative, creating different emotions. The bedrooms are divided into different types, according to size: Junior, Standard, Superior, and Suite.
All the apartments, elegantly furnished with all modern conveniences, are equipped with a fully fitted kitchen, and enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the beautiful hills of Chianti: olive trees, vines, woods and cottages as far as the eye can see.
Visits to discover the magical medieval villages of Chianti and its wineries or the historical art cities of Tuscany (Florence, Siena, Lucca, San Gimignano..).
Those who love nature and sport can find an infinite number of paths for trekking, and itineraries to cover by mountain-bike, or enjoy the delights of one of the most picturesque golf courses.
