This magnificent castle for sale is in Piedmont, in the province of Cuneo, and was probably built in the 14th century.
As many of the castles of the time, it is located in a panoramic and strategic position on top of a hill dominating the surrounding valley. This property was owned for centuries by the same Marquise family and has undergone several restoration works, extensions and improvements, the most important of which happened in the 19th century and saw the structure's restoration and the making of stunning Ghibelline battlements. The castle was again equipped with its typical drawbridge, four corner towers, the central keep and its current has a clear echo to a medieval stronghold.
It features wide halls separated by spectacular central galleries; many halls are decorated with frescoes and richly-painted coffered ceilings. One of the halls is home to a collection of military memorabilia dating to the Risorgimento and the unification of Italy. 
This estate measures 1,200 and is composed of a total of twelve bedrooms, five bathrooms and a wide conference hall.
This castle in Piedmont is beautifully framed by a 600 m2 terraced garden that follows the hill's natural elevation and is entirely fenced by crenellated walls; it is truly a fairy-tale setting and perfect for important events, a place where to enjoy the surrounding landscape with its changing colours during the day.

Cuneo

A prestigious location, home to luxury villas, greatly valuable estates and exclusive properties like this castle for sale, Cuneo was founded at the end of the 12th century, in 1198 to be precise, as a shelter for the population against the oppression inflicted upon them by the lords of the surrounding lands.
The province features green and untouched lands and has always been a point of contention due to its proximity to France. It was officially established in 1859 and was the fourth largest Italian province until 1920.
This area, known for its landscape, food and wine tradition and rich history, is a high-end location for magnificent luxury properties, villas and old castles.
