19 photos

This impressive castle for sale in Italy dates back to the first half of 1200 and the oldest inhabitants of the castle, as attested by documents, were the Farinata degli Uberti. From these, the castle passed to the captain of Manfredi, King of Naples, to the distinguished Canigiani family and which was also the birthplace of Petrarch, to the Capponi Counts, the last heirs who sold it in 1988 to the current owners who with passionate work restored the luxury home to its ancient beauty. From the Castle, which is spread over five floors culminating in a striking watch tower over a total of 1400m2, we continue towards the big farmhouse next to the castle, which has been transformed into six apartments covering a total of 840m2 and that despite the introduction of modern comfort has maintained the charm of the ancient properties in Italy.

In the barn, which covers 165m2, a large garage and a heated indoor pool have been built which in summer is linked to the outdoor pool. A second barn, a farmhouse, a church rectory with its own private church and "Nebbiano", a group of houses to be restored, enrich this estate, supplemented by ancient cellars that stretch over three levels giving a total of 1210 m2 of real estate. The farm now extends over 62 hectares, of which 14 are planted with olive trees and 11 are vineyards, and produces Chianti wine of the Colli Fiorentini awarded "Titolato" and extra virgin olive oil from "select" olives. Then, a delicate and fragrant grappa is extracted from the fresh pomace of the wines.

The location offeredy by this castle for sale in Italy is also ideal for visiting Tuscany: it is close to Florence and Siena, near San Gimignano, Volterra and Pisa, not far from the beaches of Versilia, well linked to roads and motorways but at the same time set in an area away from any traffic, quiet and panoramic, with the option of walks in the woods of the castle and horse riding trips nearby.

Tuscany Florence

Certaldo is a municipality at the heart of Valdelsa in the province of Florence, among the rolling hills covered with vineyards, olive groves and rows of cypresses.
This site was the home of Giovanni Boccaccio, consisting of several buildings of great historic and artistic interest.
Certaldo is touched by the waters of the river Elsa and by the Agliena stream where it ends. The town centre extends to the sides of a main road, forming two very different hubs, consisting of a medieval part, with the Praetorian Palace, called Certaldo Alto, which is located above a hill and the modern part of Certaldo which extends onto the plains and followed the Medieval settlement.
The origins of Certaldo date back to Etruscan and Roman times, its toponym in fact is derived from the Latin cerrus altus meaning hill covered with Turkey oak.
The first we hear of the town is in 1100 when Frederick I Barbarossa ceded the territory to the Alberti Counts who ruled until the end of the thirteenth century.
With the power of Florence, Certaldo was the centre of the Vicarage at the beginning of 1400. In part of Certaldo Alta, the medieval type village, the Pretorian Palace, the birthplace of Giovanni Boccaccio, author of the Decamerone, beautiful churches and the nobles’ palaces, tower houses and the narrow streets leading to the circle of walls can still be found intact.
