Ideal Italian Castle Locations:

Alessandria, Piedmont


The castle is located in the province of Alessandria in a charming village on the hills between Monferrato and Langhe. The Castle, which later took the name “Royal Castle” as it was purchased by Her Majesty Queen Cristina di Borbone, still retains the original defensive walls. The property consists of the castle and the former stables which are surrounded by a wonderful park with water features and green shaded areas which alternate with centuries-old trees and a bicentennial plane tree.

Saluzzo, Piedmont


The castle of Saluzzo, originally a 15th-century fortification for a marquisate, is situated on the hilltop overlooking the valley and the medieval town. With its two grand defining towers, numerous arches and vaults and a beautiful park with gardens, the property also includes a private chapel of exquisite workmanship. With 25 elegant bedrooms, dining rooms, and main salons, the property also includes a 300 square meter Spa, a swimming pool, solarium, and lemon house. Equipped with an elevator and 50 parking spaces, this property offers a wealth of possibilities.

Monferrato, Piedmont


This Neo-Gothic style castle from the late 1920s is situated at the foot of Monferrato just 5 km from Casale Monferrato and 45 km from Alessandria in Piedmont. Designed by the famous architect Carrera, this daring and elaborate manor house is surrounded by a crenelated wall, the foundations of which are the ancient circular icebox of Balzola visible on the ground floor.

Sassoferrato, the Marche Region


The prestigious Abbey Complex consists of a Monastery, a Canonical House and the Church of Santa Croce. Recently partially restored to its former glory, the property covers an area of about 3,000 square meters magnificently incorporated into a park of 36,800 square meters. The Canonical House is part of the property built by the Counts of Acts Lords of Sassoferrato in the later part of the 12th century for the Camaldolese monks. It is one of the most important testimonies of Romanesque architecture in the region.

Perugia, Umbria


The 800 sq m Medieval Castle retains all the architectural features of the period. It is located on a plateau that dominates the entire upper Tiber Valley. The estate includes also a Villa dated between 1600-1800, an annex for guests, a church, a greenhouse, two farmhouses, and a park of about 3.5 hectares equipped with a horse paddock, a swimming pool with gazebo, a tennis court and a covered area with a barbecue.

Cipressa, Liguria


This historic luxury tower with direct access to the sea and breathtaking views is set on a panoramic promontory a few kilometers from Sanremo.
