Prestigious 10th-century Castle Between Milan And Piacenza
Extraordinary castle in a wonderful panoramic position on Piacenza's hills
Ancient, finely-renovated fortress for sale in the leafy landscape of Emilia's hills
In the leafy landscape offered by Emilia's hills, between Piacenza and Milan, there is this majestic and charming prestigious castle dating back to the 10th century for sale.
This ancient fortification has a trapezoidal plan and a large internal courtyard. At the corners of the castle there are four towers with a round base, rising elegantly and slenderly, crowned by small buttresses supporting arches and covered by a conical roof. The same decoration, in double order, is repeated along the entire top of the facades. Numerous windows, created to meet the most modern housing needs, give brightness to the rooms and offer panoramic views of the property's leafy grounds.
To frame this splendid estate there is in fact a beautiful, 7-hectare centuries-old park that houses two lakes, a pond, a natural water source and some streams. This green area is also enriched by rare tree species and exotic plants, which have found their ideal microclimate here. A large area dedicated to sport and entertainment features a five-a-side football pitch, a tennis court and a basketball court.
In the garden behind the main building there is also a splendid heated swimming pool, with a gazebo that can be used for events and festivals, and an enchanting natural arena that is perfect for concerts and conventions.
There are also numerous exclusive internal spaces dedicated to meetings and conferences, including a charming reception room obtained from the castle's old dungeons.
This luxury castle for sale offers 16 bedrooms with private bathrooms, all furnished with elegant antiques and four-poster beds that perfectly recreate a late medieval spirit. Majestic fireplaces and refined furnishings embellish both the apartments and the other rooms of the fortress, such as the welcoming dining room, housed in the ancient stables, and the restaurant, also built in the old dungeons and equipped with three modern kitchens.
Of particular note are also the prestigious internal chapel and a 17th-century church, adjacent to the main structure of the castle.
