Property Description
Location: 3 km east of Siena.

The Castle of the Four Towers, situated on a green hill, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, is a pleasant place to stay near Siena. As a guest here, you have access to the garden, enjoy a great view, reach the town quickly, and you'll take pleasure in a good night's sleep in a castle. Could you imagine a better place to stay?

Art lovers can begin their journey right here. This medieval castle, dating back to the early 14th century, was built (just like all of Siena!) with red brick. The castle has a square ground plan with four corner towers, and a wonderful inner court is hidden behind the portal with its pointed arches. Above the portal there is a projection from which hot oil was poured in former times to ward off the enemy. What is nowadays the mail box was originally an embrasure which protected the archers

Originally the castle was built as a fortress of the Republic of Siena and was involved in the battles fought between Siena, ruled by the Guelfi family, and Florence, dominated by the Ghibellini family. After the fall of the Sienese Republic in 1555 - when it was of minor importance to the military - the castle was primarily used as a private residence. From then on the castle has been in private hands and it is now inhabited by the family of the owner. The building is in excellent condition and well preserved, and the ministry of culture has identified it as one of the most beautiful national monuments.

There is a guest apartment which can be accessed through a huge wooden portal. Across the small and romantic courtyard, the stairs provide access to the first floor. The apartment is furnished and designed in harmony with the historic ambience: you won't find the blatantly imposing and luxurious elegance of the feudal (Baroque) castles that were built later on, but rather a comfortable rural interior - in line with the history of this castle that dates back to the Middle Ages.
The large living room area, with a fireplace and a long wooden table, forms the centre of the apartment. Antique terracotta tiles cover the floor displaying charming unevenness, and mighty wooden beams support the ceilings. The small kitchen is located in one of the towers. The apartment is furnished with several antique pieces of furniture and equipped with a washing machine and a dishwasher for your convenience. All windows offer a view of the soft hilly landscape around Siena.

The castle is surrounded by a garden boasting lawns, beds of roses and trimmed hedges. This garden can be used by the guests and is perfect for having breakfast or a barbecue and for sunbathing in the olive grove. The Castello Delle Quattro Torri produces its own wine and olive oil - you can buy these products right on the premises.

Those who prefer to have an accomodation with breakfast might prefer another unique apartment on the top floor of the castle located in the tower room. (Minisuite / also in our repertoire). The rest of the house is privately used.

Here you live, you see, in an olive grove, far away from the bustle of the cities. You will get a good night's sleep here! This accommodation is - considering the prices in town - reasonably priced and also very favourable regarding its central location. It is only 3 km to the Piazza del Campo. You can reach Siena even without a car. There is a bus-stop 1.2 km away. During the day buses go to the centre every 15 minutes and every 30 minutes in the evening. There is an open-air swimming pool 5 km away, and the beautiful white sandy beaches of the Maremma can be reached within about one hour.
