Fortified castle dating back to the year 1100 for sale in Siena, Monteriggioni.

The property consists of: A fortified castle with church, outbuildings and agricultural land of 22Ha that passed through several important Tuscan families. Originally on the Francigena pilgrimage route, the property has had conservative work done to the roof but requires total renovation.

This property, dating back to the year 1100 combines amazing architecture, important history and a strategically interesting location with views of the Medieval village of Monteriggioni. Suitable for those wanting to create a Boutique Hotel or some form of tourist activity with a total of 1830 m² on 4 floors forming the main part of the castle with a further 5 outbuildings.

The castle was hospice for travelling pilgrims and needy people in the 12th century and the owner, Lady Sapia, became a character in Dante's Divine Comedy.

Surrounded on all sides by arable land with some vineyard for a total of ca 22Ha, (of which 4 Ha of vineyard) comprising some woodland, olive groves and pasture) the property is close to the Florence — Siena fast road and the old Cassia road to Siena.

Many of the original features have remained intact like the vaulted ceilings, columns, open loggias on 3 floors, family crests, old brick floors and the original wine cellar, making it a wonderful restoration opportunity.

There are 2 corner towers, a colonica of 270 sqm, an annexe and a charming barn to restore set away from the main castle. The chapel is of 16th century.

Just a few kilometres from Siena and with Monteriggioni, an impressive hilltop town on the horizon, this castle is in an ideal location for reaching Florence at 50 kilometres, Chianti at 30 kms and many other medieval towns throughout the area.

      How to buy property with Tranio


      Send us an enquiry with an approximate description of the property or investment project you’re interested in.

      Meeting the partners

      After clarifying your enquiry, we will introduce you to our partners and/or local agents.

      Offer selection

      We will help you to select suitable options. Tranio does not charge a commission for this — the property price remains the same as if you contacted our partner directly.

      Viewing tour

      You then view the property or properties you have chosen. Our partners or agents from Tranio's European offices will meet you in situ.

      Transaction closure

      Having chosen the best property, you will sign the sales or investment agreement (for development).


      • 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.

      • 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.
