Set amidst the gentle backdrop of central Tuscany, this spectacular 19th century castle offers magnificent views of the region’s hills and valleys. Located midway between Florence and the Adriatic Sea, the castle was built in medieval style by Italian poet Giovanni Giusti, a lover of medieval culture. The 35-room castle features the essence of the era, with arched windows, wrought iron gates, a pillared open-air entry hall, coffered ceilings, stone stairs, vaults, spiral staircases, and original frescoes on the ceilings.
The castle is surrounded by an Italian garden with a wide variety of foreign and domestic Italian plantings. Driving up the cypress tree lined drive, your first hint of the grandeur to come is the magnificent main gate in the middle of the facade. A matching gate leads out on the opposite side of the castle. Overlooking the pillared indoor courtyard is a double arched window on the second floor and pointed arched windows on the third and fourth floors above.
The castle has eight bedrooms and eight baths and has been divided into three separate apartments used by the owners. With a little renovation and modernizing some of the systems in use, the castle could be a fabulous Airbnb or be used as a wedding site or event venue. It even features a small chapel which was customary for medieval palaces. The property consists of approximately five acres of private park, 20 acres of vineyards and arable land, certainly room enough to install a swimming pool if the new owner would like one. The four floor castle measures 1,800 square meters (19,375 square feet) of living space.
The castle is in the center of Tuscany, a few kilometers from Siena, an hour and ten minutes to Florence, an hour and a half from the Perugia airport, and fifty kilometers to the sea.
