A note from Jo
We think that this Tuscany castle is a magical place to stay. Italy is filled with historic buildings but it's rare that guests are able to actually stay in one. This castle boasts enormous rooms with high ceilings and authentic furnishings in keeping with the age of the property making it a phenomenal space to mark a special occasion, be that a wedding, an anniversary or birthday. If you want to experience how it must feel to live like royalty, this is the place for you!
