|Property type||chateau / country house|
Located in Southern Tuscany only 10 mins away from the beach of Lake Bolsena and 40 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 droopingly splendid 17th century castle, Castello Caterini (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 nice rooms 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.

Hi Antonello, We had a fantastic holiday and found everything so relaxing. I would appreciate it if when you get back from Italy that you can contact me so that we can book 2 weeks for next year! Martin Bagley.
Just a short note to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Santa Christina. A beautiful location, excellent facilities and very comfortable accommodation. The pool was a real plus point especially as we were blessed with such good weather. We had a wonderful time during our stay in Italy.
Hello, I would like to thank you for your help and assistance. I would also be grateful if you would pass on our thanks to Antonello, Christina and Paola Steve Robins.
Dear Antonello We had a fantastic time at Santa Christina last year and would really love to return in August 2008. We are trying to sort out our annual leave, provisionally we would be interested in 2 weeks beginning 10 August. Could you advise on availability? Very best regards and Happy New Year.
