The fortified fortress is not only a beautiful historic mansion. It is considered an art piece, absolutly unique, and renowned within the area for it’s particular beauty and for the very important roman ruins that lay in the property. The Castle, situated in Maremma, in south Tuscany, has been built by the Spaniards (who occupied the area in the sixteen century), upon the ruins of a roman villa of the 1st century BC.
The castle has been restored in the seventies becoming National Monument and it is still in perfect conditions with the marvellous paving of old hand made “cotto”. Now it is also part of the association of the Italian Historic Mansions. The dining Room has a beautiful original brick vaulted roof from the 18th century.
The rental has a huge dining room and a big kitchen. You can also have a private cook on request.
