Set high in the Tuscan hills surrounded by an enchanting forest and silver-green olive groves, Castello di Ristonchi is a 1,000-year-old castle and ancient village. Ristonchi village has been brought back to life and it's thick stone walls are once again bursting with energy. Here your dream to live in a castle can come true with the opportunity to rent a part of this medieval village for your next vacation, celebration or meeting.
Exclusive rental for large groups is also possible. For smaller groups the real heart of your stay at Ristonchi is the people you'll meet here in our village. Nicknamed "The Creator's Castle" because it's filled with creative people of all ages from all over the world. Working together, playing together and supporting one another in the journey of life - just as it was to live in this village hundreds of years ago. Someone is always around to chat or watch the game with, other children to play with and so many friendly neighbors to borrow an egg from. Come live life simply as it was meant to be lived. (We just added wifi).
Throughout the village are 30 private rental units, ranging from studios to two-bedroom apartments, each with its own kitchen and bathroom(s). Completing the village are two private rental villas for large groups sleeping 20 and 25 guests, the Tower with stunning views from the apartments at the top and large meeting rooms at the base. The little chapel of Sant’Egidio, a charming stone and stucco church with a wood-beamed ceiling and stained glass windows completes our village where everyone feels at home.
