A property with the richest of histories, with state archives recording the castle’s presence for over 1000 years.
The castle’s two towers dominate the surrounding countryside and views from the external rooms of the castle, and indeed from the towers themselves, are the most breathtaking of views.
The castle is centred around a charming courtyard and has approximately 5000 sq.m of floor area and land covering 94 hectares which includes 18 established vineyards, olive groves, arable land and extensive woodland
The main body of the castle has been fully restored providing a high level finish typical of Tuscan residence including terracotta floors and beamed ceilings and comprises 19 en suite bedrooms, grand state rooms, extensive cellars, staff accommodation, offices and 300 sq.m of rooms that have not yet been restored. The property lends itself for use as a hotel, events venue or indeed as a working wine estate with private residence for corporate and/or private entertaining.
The 94 hectares of land encircles the castle, allowing absolute privacy and security including a swimming pool. The land is divided as follows: 12 hectares of vines with a further 6 hectares recently planted with vines, 15 hectares of olive groves, 30 hectares of arable land (of which 6 hectares could be planted with vines), the remaining land is woodland.
At present the vines are producing between 70,000 and 90,000 bottles per annum with the possibility to increase this volume to between 120,000 and 150,000 bottles per annum once the newly planted vines are producing. Production of the wine is managed by a local winery however a winery could be brought on site.
There are 300 sqm of agricultural rooms which could be restored to create further accommodation and the separate ‘tinnaia’ offers further potential as guest or staff accommodation.
The rural location of the castle provides absolute tranquillity as well as some of Tuscany’s most breathtaking views. A short distance from the castle there is a small village with basic services and a choice of a couple of restaurants. Further afield one can reach Florence in just 35 minutes, Siena in 45 minutes and Pisa airport in 1 hour.
