A few minute drive from Florence, over the green hills of Tuscany, in the heart of Impruneta, this magnificant luxury castle for sale is located.
The castle dates back to 1300 and is located in Impruneta, not far from the town, but secluded, on the top of a hill with a splendid 360 ° view over the Chianti landscape.
It is an ancient village of about 3300 sq.m, consisting of a noble part with a castle and frescoed rooms, and a "rural" part with suggestive stone buildings including a romantic "belvedere" loggia, from which in summer you can enjoy amazing sunsets. In the kitchenette of the castle, the perfectly functioning ancient oven is in great demand for pizza!
The garden of about 1850 sq.m. surrounding the castle presents an Ital-ian garden with a romantic "berceau" and a wisteria pergola. Walking along the walls you get to a large swimming pool with a lemon house and an ancient wine cellar.
The castle is surrounded by a beautiful olive grove and vineyard, as well as by a large secular forest, where hunting and fishing trips took place in the past.
In this organic farm there is a production of extra virgin olive oil, which has also received very important international prizes, and an excellent IGT Toscana red wine.
As for organic production, about 120-140 quintals of IGT Toscana wine can be obtained from the two hectares of vine (the same blend as the most famous supertuscan wines, namely 70% San Giovese, 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet) and 13 hectares of olive grove give on average 12 quintals of oil. The castle has two beautiful historic cellars on two levels (also ideal for creating a Spa, as they also have a separate entrance) and an ancient mill, now a museum, perfectly preserved.
In a small consecrated and richly decorated private chapel, it is possible to celebrate civil unions with full legal value. The castle is not tied to the Fine Arts, and is currently being used successfully for the exclusive rent mostly associated with the organization of weddings and other events. In fact, it can accommodate up to 140 people seated in a new 160 sq.m. event hall and can accommodate up to 23 people in 7 apartments / rooms, including two suites in the main building of the castle.
This exclusive castle near Florence enjoys a relaxing atmosphere of beautiful countryside while located just a few minute drive from the city center.
