Tuscany, Italy · Villa - Tuscan coast · 10 - 13 Bedrooms · 20 - 26 people

This splendid historical castle is situated on the Tuscan coast, just opposite the island of Elba, with views over an olive grove, and within easy reach of many artistically and historically interesting Tuscan towns. Built during the first decade of the 16th century, it has been the residence of many Tuscan Grand Dukes over the years. In 1860, it passed into the hands of a noble Tuscan family, who transformed it into a historical house, open to all those who wanted a unique holiday experience on the Etruscan Riviera. Subsequent renovations, supervised by the Italian Monuments and Fine Arts Office have been carried out since 1900, and today it represents one of the most important monuments in the region, offering guests the chance to rent a castle and live in a historical residence in Italy, while enjoying all modern comforts.
