One of the most ancient properties on the estate, its terracotta tile floors and original kitchen, along with its imposing stone walls, give a sense of the building’s history as the most important social meeting point of the estate. Set within the villa’s spacious garden, the stunning terrace, decked in wood, provides a peaceful haven with uninterrupted views across the estate.

Situated in an unparalleled position on the top of a hill over the Tiber valley, with breath-taking views over fields, rolling hills, olive groves and vineyards, this ancient castle and adjoining church dating back to the XI century has now been meticulously renovated and converted into a luxury villa with a stunning infinity pool and is the perfect location for unforgettable escapes, events and weddings. Space reigns supreme at Castiglione Ugolino, from the extensive surrounding garden and grounds, to the large kitchen and the well-appointed bedrooms with their sumptuous en-suite marble bathrooms. Vaulted ceilings, reclaimed terracotta tiled floors, XIII century frescos and travertine marble stairs create a unique home that is luxurious without being ostentatious, mixing modern comfort with traditional materials. The outdoor spaces are equally inviting; Guests can relax in the sunshine on loungers surrounding the infinity pool, enjoy reading in the shaded courtyard and sit in awe of the sunset views from the covered pergola before joining together for dinner under the stars on the panoramic terrace. Ideal for larger groups, the main villa sleeps up to 12 guests and the annex directly opposite sleeps up to 8 guests.

One of the most ancient properties on the estate, its terracotta tile floors and original kitchen, along with its imposing stone walls, give a sense of the building’s history as the most important social meeting point of the estate. Set within the villa’s spacious garden, the stunning terrace, decked in wood, provides a peaceful haven with uninterrupted views across the estate.
