The castle was built in the 14th century, over 1,000 years ago! Of course it’s had some updates since then, but it’s not The Hilton. The furniture is authentic and the decor is typical Tuscan. The bathrooms are quirky and small and if you want to enjoy the amazing views in the tower expect some steep stairs.
Our beautiful pool is filled with natural spring water from our mountains. Refreshing in the hot summer.
