The breathtakingly splendid 17th century castle, Castello di Santa Cristina, has been the property of the noble Caterini family for generations. It is located in Southern Tuscany half way between Orvieto and Siena, closely bordering with the regions of Umbria and Tuscany and one and a half hours away from Rome.
The castle’s 18th Century ivy-covered farmhouse and out-buildings have been carefully restored over the past ten years to retain their authenticity. Now they offer fantastic accommodation, B&B or half board, in 8 self-catering cottages and 14 private bedrooms. All rooms are furnished with original pieces and offer you the chance to enjoy a unique holiday in Italy.
The castle offers a perfect location for an authentic country holiday in the south of Tuscany, where you can explore neighbouring historic towns of Orvieto, Sorano, Pitigliano and Bolsena. We offer traditional Italian cuisine and fantastic cooking courses in our home style restaurant.
Santa Cristina castle is also an ideal place for a horse riding or cycling holiday. Our excursions travel as far as Proceno castle, Lake Bolsena and to the beautiful natural reserve of Selva Del Lamone. We have a new wellness centre onsite providing a range of holistic and Ayurvedic treatments with a qualified physiotherapist.
Santa Cristina Castle can also provide a beautiful setting for a unique wedding in the castle grounds.
