Set within picturesque grounds with spectacular panoramic views, Castello di Policiano has a rich heritage and offers luxury living in an extraordinary setting inspired by the timeless beauty and magnificence of Tuscany. Breathtaking in scale and grandeur, Castello di Policiano boasts 3,000m² of living space and over 46 rooms. This rare estate also offers 2,500m² of outbuildings as well as two ruins which if rebuilt would provide another 500m² of living space. The central building includes a large tower and a beautiful courtyard with a water well with a porch. Architectural highlights include an impressive staircase, grand stone fireplaces, original terracotta flooring, exposed chestnut beams, barrel-vaulted ceilings and restored stone walls. This amazing castle is 6 kilometres from Arezzo and 19 kilometres from Cortona, both of which are renowned as jewels in the Tuscan crown. The Tuscan capital of Florence, a city of art par excellence, is approximately 70 kilometres away. The castle was first mentioned in AD 963 when the Emperor Ottone I donated the estate to the Rectory of Arezzo. It sits perched atop an enviable elevated location that affords a grand view over the Val Di Chiana and Lake Trasimeno. Set within 18 hectares of land, this exclusive estate offers superior privacy, serenity and beauty. There is a splendid garden with olive groves, a park, and a wooded area which further enhances the charm and beauty. The area possesses the ideal microclimate and has superb soil allowing for the cultivation of premium extra virgin olive oil. Castello di Policiano’s olive groves cover approximately five hectares of the estate’s gentle landscape. The remains of the medieval church of San Martino can be viewed to the south of the estate. The property would be ideal in a number of capacities: a world-class private residence; a boutique hotel; a stately venue for weddings and corporate events; a wellness clinic/rehabilitation centre/spa; a personal care retirement home or senior living facility; an equestrian centre; or even individually owned luxury condos or residences. The approved plan for a renovation project is available which includes the creation of a Roman bath, an outdoor pool and a heliport. As it was for the Etruscans, Cortona is located in a strategic position within easy reach of important artistic and cultural centres. The seat of an important Etruscan museum, this ancient city is located in the province of Arezzo. Its’ historic centre has remained intact over the centuries with the fourteenth-century Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo, the 12th-century Palazzo Comunale, the 15th-century cathedral and the Diocesan Museum which houses famous paintings by Lorenzetti, Fra Angelico and Signorelli. Cortona has been home to the University of Georgia (UGA Cortona) for several decades and has attracted many international residents. Here, you can taste the characteristic fegatelli and tripe usually combined with a delicious red wine.

      FAQs

      • Can I get a mortgage abroad?

        It depends on the country. For example, German banks willingly offer mortgages to foreigners at 1.5-2 % per annum with LTV up to 70%. Spain offers less favourable terms: the minimum rate for foreigners is 2.5% per annum. The situation is different in Greece: although the law does not prohibit banks from issuing loans, in practice, Greek banks don’t issue loans to local nor foreign property buyers. You can learn about the mortgage terms in your preferred country by contacting Tranio’s local agents.

      • How does the purchase procedure work?

        The purchase procedure depends on the country where you buy property. Generally, after choosing a property you need to sign a preliminary agreement with the seller and carry out a due diligence of the property by checking the relevant documents and the property's technical condition. After that, all parties sign the sales agreement and the notary registers the transaction. As a rule, the purchase registration costs amount to approximately 10% of the property price.

      • Can a residence permit be obtained by buying property?

        In some countries it is possible. Residence-for-property purchase programmes are known as Golden Visas programmes. Greece, Spain, Latvia, and Portugal offer the most popular Golden Visas in Europe. The Greek residence permit is the cheapest and can be obtained by buying a property worth at least €250,000, while organising all of the documents costs about €19,000. Certain countries offer citizenship to property buyers — for example, an investor can get their hands on a Cypriot passport by buying a property worth at least €2M.

      • Can I obtain income from a seaside apartment?

        Yes. You can use the purchased property yourself for holidays and lease it to tourists for the rest of the time. To avoid the hassle of finding tenants and cleaning the property, it’s a wise idea to hire a management company to do all the work – these services usually cost about 20% of the rent. Take into account the length of the tourist season in the location you choose: in certain regions it will be easy to rent apartments out all year round, while in others it might only be possible to do so during the high season.

      • How does Tranio make money if your service is free for the clients?

        We share the commission, which the buyer or the seller (depending on the country) pays to our partners — foreign real estate agencies. The price of this service is the same as if you contacted the agency directly — this is an important condition and applies to all of our partnership agreements.

      • Who guarantees the transaction security?

        The transaction security is guaranteed by the notary who draws up the sales agreement and checks the information on the previous and current owners of the property, any outstanding restrictions, mortgage, and third-party encumbrances. Tranio is not responsible for the parties involved in the transaction.
