Tavolese Castle For Sale in Italy
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.
