The breathtakingly splendid 17th-century castle, Castello di Santa Cristina, has been the property of the noble Caterini family for generations and has its own fairy-tale turret!

Over the past ten years, the castle’s nearby 18th century ivy-covered farmhouse and out-buildings have been carefully restored to retain their authenticity and separated into 8 self-catering cottages and 14 bedrooms with Bed & Breakfast for guests, furnished with original pieces it can offer you unique country holidays.
