Located in Southern Tuscany only 10 mins away from the beach of Lake Bolsena and 45 mins from the sea, 1 hour 30 mins from Rome, halfway between Orvieto and Siena, closely bordering with the regions of Umbria and Lazio, the jaw-droppingly splendid 17th century castle, Castello Santa Cristina (complete with fairy tale turret) has been the property of the noble Caterini family for generations and still is. Over the recent past, the castle’s nearby 18th Century ivy-covered farmhouse and outbuildings have been sympathetically restored to retain their authenticity and styled into 8 cottages for guests, mostly furnished with original pieces. A large terrace overlooks the main pool where catering service is available on previous request. Perfect location for relaxing, sports and cultural sightseeing. Many activities on the spot such as cookery courses, horse riding centre with English speaking instructor, tennis court. Ideal place for horse riding excursions. A golf course near by.
Hello my name is Antonio Mancini Caterini, S.Cristina castle and the estate belong to my family since 1700. The Caterini family came to this area around 1200 and they moved to the castle several centuries after. Only few know that this is one of the less inhabited areas of Italy, so we benefit of enchanting countryside only 1hr and 30min from Rome and 1 hr and 15 min from Siena. From our place you can explore mountains, lakes and the sea. My wife is half English and we have 2 sons (9 and 18) and a daughter (21), we are all bilingual and happy to meet new guests at S.Cristina every year. I have a passion for sports, I used to be a triathlete and still like to bike around or swim long distance in the lake. But my real passion are horses that is why we have a riding center on the spot.
