About the property

IT2247

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.

About mancini caterini antonio

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.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: This place is a great facility for those who love to do sports in beautiful natural context. At the same time the castle estate and the park of the castle itself are extremely suitable for children and throughout the year many families come to the castle because of its children facilities: children's riding school with ponies, children's playground, babies pool, mini-football pitch, ping pong, billiard table and table football. All cottages have gas central heating for the cold winter nights, although, even in late November it can be warm enough not to need heating. Of course, for the off-season guest, as Santa Cristina is in the heart of the forest, there is plenty of wood to burn to enjoy a cosy fireside evening with a glass of local wine and a good book. Outside: The estate around us is approx 250 acres. The premises of the castle offer many facilities for adults and children to enjoy themselves, the most important are: a) 2 sw pools for adults (not heated), of which 1 available for everybody (size 16m x 6.50m) and 1 private for the cottages Marta & Capodimonte (size 4m x 8m); a children/babies pool(size 2m x 2m);Around the sw pool there are a good number of sunbeds and deckchairs as well as some gazebos to provide a shaded area. b) BBQ area with 2 grills for memorable summer evenings. c) Tennis court (cost €15 per hour needs reservation, new balls can be purchased. All at the castle reception). d) Riding school for children and adults: 16 horses and ponies available with English speaking instructor at €35 per hour. 2 sand arenas available and amazing trail riding centre with incredible countryside and views of the area. e) Terrace overlooking sw pool with 5 gazebos with outdoor tables and chairs. f) Mini football pitch.
