Full description:

Dating back to the year 1100, an impressive castle to restore.

Steeped in history, a beautiful example of a fortified castle with church, outbuildings and agricultural land that passed through several important Tuscan families. Originally on the Francigena pilgrimage route, the property has had conservative work done to the roof but requires total renovation.

This property combines amazing architecture, important history and a strategically interesting location with views of the Medieval village of Monteriggioni. Suitable for those wanting to create a Boutique Hotel or some form of tourist activity with a total of 1830 sqm on 4 floors forming the main part of the castle with a further 5 outbuildings.

The castle was hospice for travelling pilgrims and needy people in the 12th cenury and the owner, Lady Sapia, became a character in Dante's Divine Commedy.
Surrounded on all sides by arable land with some vineyard for a total of ca 22Ha, (of which 4 Ha of vineyard) comprising some woodland, olive groves and pasture) the property is close to the Florence - Siena superstrada and the old Cassia road to Siena.

Many of the original features have remained intact like the vaulted ceilings, columns, open loggias on 3 floors, family crests, old brick floors and the original wine cellar, making it a wonderful restoration opportunity.

There are 2 corner towers, a colonica of 270 sqm, an annexe and a charming barn to restore set away from the main castle. The chapel is 16th century.

This property maintains a totally genuine atmosphere and provides an interesting project for the buyer desiring a fascinating building close to Siena.

Energy class F. 179.86kWh/per sq m/per annum

Just a few kilometres from Siena and with Monteriggioni, an impressive hilltop town on the horizon, this castle is in an ideal location for reaching Florence at 50 kilometres, Chianti at 30 kms and many other medieval towns throughout the area.
