The Castle of Santa Cristina is immersed in the unspoilt countryside in the center of the Alta Tuscia plateau, between Lazio, Tuscany and Umbria, halfway between Rome and Siena, in an area rich in interesting hints for excursions among castles, charming villages, Renaissance palaces and Etruscan necropolis. From the renovation of the complex a total of 42 beds have been created. Ideal location for ceremonies and banquets, the castle also offers many activities, ranging from equestrian tourism to mountain biking.

Castello di Santa Cristina History

The castle of Santa Cristina is located between Mount Amiata and Lake Bolsena, near the border with Tuscany and Umbria. An excellent base for hiking inland, but also to appreciate this little-known corner of Italy that deserves to be discovered. The enogastronomical traditions of the area are among the oldest in the country, while the surroundings are rich in archaeological sites of great interest.

First of all, the Villanovan settlement of three thousand years ago, which lies on the bottom of Lake Bolsena and can be scoured with masks and fins.

Built in the seventeenth century, thanks to its strategic position, the castle has always played a key role within the Papal State, while from 1848, the year in which Cardinal Prospero Caterini chose it as his personal residence, belongs to this great family; today, in fact, it is home to Antonio Mancini Caterini, who made it a pleasant place to stay.

The games rooms with billiards and the large park with an area for children and a swimming pool are open to guests. The apartments consist of apartments set in the old rural houses at the foot of the castle, characterized by antiques and tasteful finishes, and a cottage with private pool that includes two other independent apartments. Large rooms suitable for hosting ceremonies and events are located in the former stables of the manor. The lovely chapel is also part of the complex, available for private functions.
