State and finishing
The property has maintained its historical allure. A document proves its presence already in 1122. However, its original place name suggests that it is a settlement of Roman origin.
A noble family (the current owner) bought it in the ‘700s, and has taken care of it since then.
A wrought iron gate gives access to this property and a driveway leads to a 2,000 sq.m park/garden featuring age-old trees and large lawns.
The garden, as well as the villa, offers a breathtaking view over the Chianti hills, and in the distance you can admire the Apuan Alps and the Pistoia mountains.
This property includes a plot of about 21,000 sq.m with a vineyard and an olive grove.
Use and potential uses
Villa Castellana is ideal for those who want to live in a mansion in one of the most beautiful areas in Tuscany. Its large dimensions make it a perfect exclusive tourist accommodation.
