Dating back to the 11th century, Villa Castiglione Ugolino was once an ancient castle which has been beautifully renovated into a stunning luxury villa. Being the largest within the exclusive Murlo Estate, this property overflows with charm and elegance, enhanced by the majestic church of Santa Maria Maddalena, directly connected to the main villa.
Villa Castiglione Ugolino can accommodate in total 20 guests across two buildings, the main villa and the annexe, which can sleep up to 12 and 8 guests respectively. This would be the perfect Villa for a wedding in Italy or luxury event.
Villa Castiglione Ugolino is the perfect fusion of classical Italian architecture and modern luxury interiors. Upon entering the villa, the historical charm is immediately present with the home featuring vaulted beam ceilings, restored terracotta tiles floors, 13th century frescos and travertine marble stairs. However, the true history of the property lies within the large open-plan space of the XI church attached. Within the main villa, a small lounge area provides glimpses into this historic space, while a large dining area and kitchen adjacent acts as the main hub of the home. There is a second lounge with original fireplace for cosy evenings in.
Outside, the grounds of Villa Castiglione Ugolino are even more magical. Enjoy your alfresco lunches and dinners on the panoramic terrace, the perfect spot to take in the beautiful views over the Murlo Estate and the Umbrian countryside. For some quiet moments, dive in your favourite book in the shaded courtyard or head towards the covered pergola for a dreamy sunset.

There is also plenty of lawn for the children to play freely as you sunbathe by the pool loungers.
