Il Castello di Sovicille

Imagine living in a palace facing a picturesque village square on one side and an endless tableau of Tuscan hills on the other. This imposing 17th-century palazzo, built over the ruins of an ancient castle, comes with an inner courtyard and a five acre park complete with a variety of seating areas and a beautifully positioned pool set 200 yards away.

Having two nearby restaurants, one in a separate wing of the palace, and a coffee shop across the square means not skipping a meal when you just don't feel like cooking. When you don't feel like driving, dawn-to-dusk bus service, 200 yards away, leads to Siena in 25 minutes.

Inside, the layout and décor reflect the villa's illustrious past. Furnishings from each era are set against family heirlooms. A cannon and medieval armaments line the main hall. The staircase, adorned with portraits of Italy's most noted artists, leads to rooms brimming with frescoes, paintings and gorgeous views.

Living space arcs across four different rooms of varying sizes. The main dining area comfortably seats all and an equally capacious medieval refectory doubles as a charming gathering spot. Bathrooms, either en suite or adjacent, are present for each bedroom. The bedrooms, many added over time, come in a variety of styles and shapes. Many overlook the park and the hills of Siena. Nine are on the second floor and have screened windows with the exception of one with a French balcony.
