Tucked into the rolling hills of the Chianti Valley, this stately fortress has its own tower and turret wall with a panoramic view of olive groves, vineyards, and the surrounding forest.The castle dates back to the early 1200s, when the Conti Alberti, a powerful Longobard clan originating in the Elsa Valley, chose the location. Only 1 family owned the property until the 17th century. While the turret tower and stonewall showcase the history, this property has been beautifully renovated with modern luxuries. Actress Julia Roberts was among the first guests to visit the castle after its restoration.
