These magnificent holiday accommodations
are located in a castle in the first town of Lazio just over the border with Tuscany. Dating back to the 12th century, this castle has a pentagonal base which incorporates a main tower and two secondary towers interconnected by walkways and a drawbridge, one of 19 still working in Italy. The castle looms over the Via Cassia and dominates the valley of the Paglia River, with Mount Amiata in the background.
