The Castle has belonged to the same family for about four centuries. One of it’s peculiarities is that, since 1612, it has often been handed on through women. 
The Castle is located along the secondary road Francigena not far from Siena and overlooks the wonderful landscape that stretches from Siena to Monte Amiata. The original Castle dates back to the thirteenth century but it was in the sixteenth century that the Celsi family from Siena, decided to refurbish and enrich it.

The Castle was restored by architect Baldassare Peruzzi, whose intervention can be seen in the beautiful circular chapel and the terraced wall, adorned with niches which is parallel to the entrance pathway. After being sacked by the imperial troops in the middle of the sixteenth century, it was passed on to the de Vecchi family.  At the end of the nineteenth century Maria Antinori Aldobrandini, daughter of Giulia de Vecchi and grandmother of the current owner, commissioned  architect Mariani to make a further transformation of the Castle, by raising the east tower and crowning it with battlements, bringing the building to its present form.

The bright and spacious “Limonaia” has been recently renovated while maintaining its original characteristics. It is the ideal place to escape for total peace and relaxation and is the perfect base to visit the nearby places of interest such as Siena, Monteriggioni, Chianti and Florence. 
With its six large bedrooms, which can hold up to ten people, there is also a big living room, spacious dining area and kitchen, where cooking courses are held. The “Limonaia” has all the commodities and the charm to make your stay in Tuscany very special.

The symbolic or blessing ceremony can beheld in the sixteenth century Chapel for those who prefer a more natural setting you can have your wedding ceremony on the lawn in front of the Chapel. The ceremony can be followed by a reception in the garden in front of the Chapel, the courtyard of the Castle or in the Barn that can hold up to 180 guests either in the porch or in one of the recently redecorated rooms and spend the night n the Limonaia. It would be our pleasure to help with the wedding planning and to find the best solutions to suit your needs.
