Medieval castle mentioned in the Divine Comedy

10 guests · 5 bedrooms · 6 baths
Become part of a history that spans millennia at Castello Uglione. First built around the year 1000, this medieval property has timeless views across vineyards and olive groves to the Italian Alps in the distance, and was fully restored to modern luxury in 2016. A private hilltop setting and extensive grounds make it ideal for a family reunion, anniversary or birthday celebration with friends, or even a destination wedding in rural Tuscany.
The villa sits at the end of a winding drive on nearly two-and-a-half acres of landscaped grounds, beautifully maintained and illuminated at night. Fruit trees and olive groves surround a lawn large enough for pétanque, a trampoline and playground children will love, an infinity pool, hot tub, ping-pong table, and lounging and dining areas. In the evenings, heat up the pizza oven and firepit, or relax inside by the wet bar or in the games room or sauna.
Castello Uglione became part of the historical record in 1127, when it was part of a gift to the bishop of Florence, and was even mentioned in the Divine Comedy. Today, its beamed ceilings and brick archways have been refreshed with crisp white paint and polished concrete floors. The result is a gallery-like backdrop for living and dining areas and a fully equipped, state-of-the-art kitchen with glam, mod-inspired furnishings in tones of silver and gold.
The five bedrooms at this stunning vacation rental are divided between a 4,300-square-foot main house and a 2,100-square-foot building with a tower. In the main house, you’ll find two bedrooms with double beds and en-suite bathroom, including a honeymoon-worthy master suite with its own terrace. The tower has one bedroom with a double bed and en-suite bathroom and two that share a bathroom with a double bed, and bunk bed and twin bed, respectively. Two additional bedrooms in the spa area have a double bed and two twin beds, and share a spa bathroom with a jetted tub.
Spend your holiday enjoying the villa’s amenities or exploring the area, which has incredible scenery to reward the cyclist or driver. Though its setting is tranquil, it’s close enough to Florence, Siena and even Pisa for a day trip spent marveling over each city’s art and architecture.
