THE CASTLE

Located in the Southern Tuscany, one hour and half from Rome, half way between Orvieto and Siena, closely bordering with the regions of Umbria and Tuscany, the breathtakingly splendid 17th century castle, Castello di Santa Cristina, has been the property of the noble Caterini family for generations.

Over the past ten years, the castle’s 18th Century ivy-covered farmhouse and out-buildings have been carefully restored to retain their authenticity. Now they offer fantastic accommodation, B&B or half board, in 8 self-catering cottages and 14 private bedrooms. Rooms furnished with original pieces offer you the chance to enjoy a unique holiday in Italy.

A perfect location if you are looking at a true countryside holiday in the south of Tuscany where you can explore the various neighbouring historic towns such as Orvieto, Sorano, Pitigliano and Bolsena. We offer traditional Italian cuisine for fantastic cooking courses and meals in our home style restaurant.

Santa Cristina castle is also an ideal place for an horse riding or cycling holiday. During exciting trail excursions, we travel as far as Proceno castle, Lake Bolsena and to the beautiful natural reserve of Selva Del Lamone. Furthermore, at the end of a sporty day, an ayurvedic masseuse will be ready to relax you with an appropriate massage at our new wellness centre.

Santa Cristina Castle can also provide a beautiful setting for a unique wedding in the castle grounds.
