Starting from Spring 2014, besides the flat in the Tower (2 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room and kitchen), we can offer to our guests more accomodation in the newly restored apartments of the Winemaker and Farmhouse. Both furnished in the local country style of last century, using only antique furniture coming from the old rooms of the castle. In the Farmhouse: three bedrooms, two bathrooms, very big kitchen with big old fireplace, and sitting room. Large private garden where is possible to relax in the shade of the Tower. The Winemaker apartment: three double bedrooms with three bathrooms and kitchen. Terrace with breathtaking view of the Montespertoli valley with the Sonnino vineyards. In front of the terrace is the old 'Aia' of the winery where is possible to relax and enjoy a great Chianti sunset.
Castello Sonnino is composed of a number of architectural structures, the oldest parts are the thirteenth-century Tower and chapel. Over the centuries the Castle passed hands between a number of powerful local families until it was purchased by Isacco Sonnino in the nineteenth century. It is now a Historic Dwelling and home to Baron Alessandro and Baroness Caterina de Renzis Sonnino.
It conserves precious evidence of the role played by the family during the period of the birth of the Kingdom of Italy.
Federica purchased this castle in 1850
