Surrounded by a vineyards estate over 645 hectares large this superb Medieval castle is located right in the heart of rolling Tuscan countryside, east of Siena.

The castle is a perfect setting for romantic and charming outdoor receptions that take place in the courtyard of the castle and in the nearby garden.

The castle is located on a gentle hilltop that dominates the vineyards. Around the castle a little hamlet, that consists of the ancient farmhouses restored into holidays apartments.

There are 21 apartments located in the 5 farhouses nearby the castle; and a few others in the restored stone farmhouses around the estate grounds (all within less than one mile from th castle). A bit further, still in the estate, a secluded villa, which accommodates 16 people with its own private gardens and a large private pool.

All apartments have been restored with attention to traditional materials including chestnut beams and terracotta floors; all apartments have the use of a pool and a garden outside.

This castle was built in the XII century as a defensive fortress to protect Siena from East. In mid 1400 the castle was donated with its thousand hectare of land by Siena republic to a noble family that held the property until 1900. At that time Modanella was a self-sufficient community with its own school, the church, farmhouses and the wine and olive cultivation.

Despite the many changes that has modified the hamlet over the centuries the castle has retained his appearance of strength; and when you enter the elegant court and admires the porch and the clock tower a feeling of warm welcome will pervade you.

In the hamlet, near the castle is located a lovely XVII century church. The church can accommodate 80 people seated and about 20 standing for your romantic Siena wedding.
