About

The 10th century castle, a national landmark, stands on the highest point between Florence and Siena, in the incomparable Chianti region, above one of the best scenery you'll find anywhere in the world. It has been formerly a lookout post for the Florentine army, giving a commanding view of the whole central Tuscany: from here you can see Florence, Siena, Lucca, San Gimignano and Pisa.

The Castle can accommodate up to 43 guests in 19 spacious rooms. A wine cellar is available for indoor receptions up to 65 guests or as a dancefloor. Outside garden or inside courtyard are fabulous areas for bigger receptions (up to 200 people). A private chapel is available for private blessings.


This hidden gem of the Tuscan countryside provides the castle guests with a unique environment for a dream wedding and a suggestive atmosphere, stepping in the past without straying too far from the present.

The castle's estate, two hundred and fifty acres' property, is a working farm and produces its own wine, extra virgin olive oil, Vin Santo and honey.

    Wow! This was not only the venue for our wedding but it was also a home for our friends and family for an amazing week spent together.
    The Castello is an amazing location, the buildings and surroundings are beautiful.The Castello is maintained and operated to a very high standard. The staff were so welcoming to our whole wedding party and their help, service and friendship went above and beyond anything I had ever experienced before previously.
    As a wedding venue it is brilliant because as well as being very beautiful it is also very flexible to the needs of the wedding couple . There are a wide selection of characterful salons available for use at the reception as well as a beautiful courtyard where the reception meal can be served .
    Our wedding reception was supposed to be outside, but due to heavy rain on the day it was transferred seamlessly to the Castle's cellar which was even more magical than I could have imagined.
    I couldn't recommend Castello di Santa Maria Novella enough.

    Loved this place!
