Castello Costaguti History
The Marquis Perafan Afan de Rivera Costaguti is the last descendant of that great patrician family originally from Genoa and Rome, who from the early seventeenth century is a lady of Roccalvecce and of his castle. The latter, also known as Castello Costaguti, is the result of a real historical-artistic stratification that covers almost a millennium.
Cited as early as 1199 as "Rocca del Veccio", from which the town's toponym, in the course of the 6th century it belonged to three different noble families, the Baglioni of Bologna, the Chigi and the Colonna di Roma, who cohabitated the palace.
The structural changes of greater weight, however, owe to the Costaguti, who in the nineteenth century have raised it by two floors. And the noble floor, superb for the value of the pictorial decorations, houses some of the bedrooms made available to guests. It can be reached by climbing from the ground-floor Weapons Room, where in addition to the tapestries, the genealogical trees and the ancient armor of the family, there are the other four bedrooms, divided into two independent apartments with kitchenette (called Dell'Oratorio and La Legnaia). Those who love art or simply those who want to live for a moment a dream, perhaps under a romantic four-poster bed, (one of the symbols of the Costaguti family, marquises of the canopy), can not give up the pleasure of spending the night in such rich environments charm and atmosphere: it is almost difficult to choose between different rooms but all of great beauty. Painted coffered ceilings, seventeenth-century stuccowork, furniture and household furnishings also enrich the common rooms, including a lounge with a large Sicilian fireplace from the late eighteenth century.
The facilities are also elite: two swimming pools, located at the foot of the fortress, a tennis court, a vast seventeenth-century park (over 15,000 square meters), sale of the best national labels at the old castle cellar and personal chef on request.
Large spaces that, on the occasion of ceremonies and banquets, offer an elegant and suggestive atmosphere, as well as the possibility to host conferences and business meetings in a modern congress center with a meeting room for up to 100 people.
