An exquisite medieval castle set in one of the most unspoilt, pristine areas of Tuscany. The Castle is located under Monte Amiata, in a valley made up of a magnificent patchwork of farmland where wine and olive oil has been produced for centuries. Each room is individually styled in the Tuscan period and classic decor with exquisite fabrics, colours and ancient wood.
This is a working wine estate with Olive groves. The Winemaker has been producing wine in the area for over twenty years, and through the help of the distinct microclimate and biodiversity of the Amiata Valley, she has been able to grow three of the most sensitive varietals – Sangiovese, Pinot Noir, and Alicante.
Bought and restored in 2000, the castle today is a dynamic cultural centre. Ideal as an off-season travel venue, it hosts guests, events, weddings and courses all year round. The ethos of the family, is concerned with the sustainability of how we inhabit a place and relate to it physically and mentally.
As a 21st Century Castle, they are helping to preserve the land and continue traditional agricultural practices. Guests are encouraged to enjoy the wide variety of activities in and around the Castle. Whether it’s one of our summer concerts in the courtyard, observing a Tuscan butchery demonstration, foraging for wild asparagus, or simply a swim in the pool under the shade of the ancient olive trees – we hope that those staying with us will engage with this miraculous place.
We have 8 rooms in the main villa of the castle and three self-catering apartments within the castle walls all decorated with family heirlooms and furniture found in local antiques markets.
The hosts also run a wide variety of courses designed to allow you to immerse yourselves further into the Tuscan landscape, whether it be through writing, painting and photography retreats or baking and WSET wine tasting courses, or simply yoga classes, our experts can help you to see the best of Tuscany.
Alternatively just to enjoy the valley on foot with someone to help you identify the wild orchids, a pasta making masterclass, a cheesemaking display with our local shepherds, or a visit to the local Michelin-starred restaurants we can help you organize a stay that you’ll never forget.
