Description
The impressive castle has an intriguing architectural layout and incorporates 9 en-suite bedrooms , a splendid fully equipped kitchen and several large imposing reception rooms. The guest-house set within the parkland has a further 4 bedrooms ( ideally suited for the custodian’s house ). The castle is laid out in the form of a “V” and consists of two separate parts both unique in their own architectural styles. One wing has the main original entrance or barbican with the original crest of the Barberini family still in place. Between two rectangular battlement towers sits the original wooden drawbridge. The second wing is more rustic and simple in its architectural style with the battlements still retaining their arrow loopholes and circular bastions. Within the defensive walls, through the drawbridge, we find the internal courtyard surrounded on three sides by the domestic areas where are located the fitness / spa and theatre and is totally dominated by the imposing fortress. On the eastern side of this beautiful courtyard we find the military guard house for the defence of the castle whilst on the western wing we find the cellars ,the old grain stores and other general store rooms. Leading from the main entrance room including a large fireplace with the” Barberini” family crest we enter into the “Salone d’Ornore” with its fireplace adorned with the symbol of the” Soderini” and paintings by Rosa da Tivoli, Spagnoletto ,Fieravino and a large canvass by Luigi Garzi.On the same level we find a drawing room incorporating a small collection of antique porcelain and a kitchen with decorated ceilings. Notable is the fantastic library decorated in the Venetian style with a further room dedicated to a collection of military armour and weaponry. Leaving the courtyard winding your way via various pathways we find first the garden and park full with rare plants and shrubs, the second accessing a ramp we arrive inside the keep accessed by means of the drawbridge. Inside are found the military quarters , with ammunition storage areas , firing postions and indeed an area used in the past for carrying out executions. At the foot of the keep are located the ancient prison cells. Most noteworthy on the southern side of the courtyard is the clock tower dating back to the time of the Barberini.
