Castle for sale in Florence, Italy

The first historical traces of the castle date back to the year 1134 BC. A villa inhabited and visited over time by illustrious historical figures, such as the Grand Duke Leopoldo II and Florentine noble families, such as the Aleotti, the Rimbettini, and the Lappacci. At the beginning of the sixteenth century the entire area, including the castle, became the property of the Salviati, an ancient Florentine family in rapid social rise, related to the Grand Duke Cosimo de ‘Medici.

A unique property of its kind, full of history, in perfect condition, and maintained over time thanks to careful and constant restorations that have preserved the value and authenticity of the time.

Much of the furniture dates back to the time, still present inside the villa together with the famous collectible ceramics and paintings depicting family dynasties.
The villa represents a versatile opportunity that can be evaluated for various types of use and purposes. Definitely a representative solution in a context-rich in history and great elegance.
