Property description

Extraordinary 14th-century castle located close to Florence in the beautiful landscape of Impruneta in the heart of Tuscany. Undoubtedly one of the most fascinating castles in the region, perched on top of a hill with a splendid 360° view over the Chianti landscape.The 3300 sq.m estate consists of the residential part, with the castle and frescoed rooms (100 sq.m), and the rural part, with evocative stone buildings, including a romantic belvedere loggia from which it is possible to admire splendid sunsets in summer.The gardens of about 1850 sq.m surrounding the castle contain the Italian-style garden with the romantic berceau and the wisteria pergola. A walk along the walls leads to the large swimming pool with the lemon house and the old wine cellar.The castle is surrounded by 155 hectares of land, a beautiful olive grove, a vineyard and a large centuries-old forest, where hunting and fishing trips were held in the past.The organic farm produces an extra virgin olive oil that has received very important awards, including international ones, and an excellent Igt Toscana red wine. As far as organic production is concerned, from the two hectares of vineyard it is possible to produce about 120-140 quintals of Igt Toscana wine (the same blend as the most famous Supertuscans: 70% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet) and from the 13 hectares of olive groves of the frantoio, moraiolo and leccino varieties an average of 12 quintals of oil is produced.The castle has two beautiful historical cellars on two floors (one is ideal for creating a spa, as it has a separate entrance) and an ancient oil mill, which today is a museum, perfectly preserved.In the small consecrated and richly decorated private chapel, it is possible to celebrate civil unions with full legal value.The castle is not bound by the Monuments and Fine Arts Office and is currently successfully used for exclusive rentals, mostly combined with the organisation of weddings and events. It can host up to 140 people in the new 160 sq.m event hall and can accommodate up to 20 people in 7 apartments, including two suites located in the main body of the castle.This exclusive castle for sale on the outskirts of Florence enjoys the relaxing atmosphere of the Florentine countryside while being only a few minutes from the city centre.
