Castello di Magona 20 is a magnificent 16th Century Castle with 6 suites and 4 double bedrooms all with ensuite bathrooms split on two floors. The castle occupies an area of 1500 square meters.
The hall is enriched with beautiful oil paintings. To the left of the hall you will find a small sitting room. At the end of the entrance hall and to the left, there is another sitting room with a fireplace and a bar in the corner. This room gives access to an intimate living room richly furnished with an antique chest, two very comfortable sofas upholstered with rich damask fabric, a television and DVD player. On the right hand side of the entrance hall, there is a bright ceramic tiled dining room, where guests enjoy their buffet breakfast, along with lunch and dinner should they so choose.
The first floor can be reached via two staircases: one to the left and one to the right of the entrance hall. The staircase to the right of the entrance hall is a grand structure furnished with two antique suits of armour. It leads to the impressive Grand Duke’s bedroom (Suite 3). This suite looks out onto both the front and rear gardens, and is painted cardinal red. It also contains antique furnishings, including a 17th century headboard, bookcases and grand piano. This second staircase also leads to two other suites (Suites 1 & 2), one overlooking the southern garden, the other with a view of the northern garden.
At the top of the second staircase, we come across a lovely suite (Suite 7 with a large terrace), decorated in a soothing shade of green, a further two double bedrooms (Rooms 5 & 6) and another suite (Suite 4). Descending this staircase, to the right at mezzanine level, there is a small lounge, equipped with TV and internet point. WI-FI access is available on most of the ground floor in the common areas, including the garden area, and in the majority of the bedrooms. Continuing downstairs, there is a double bedroom (Room 9), a junior suite (Suite 8) and a staircase which leads to another junior suite (Suite 10) in the attic. This room features exposed wooden beams and a wonderful view of the landscape.
On entering the rear garden of the Castle, via the glass doors at the end of the entrance hall, there is a well kept rose garden and lawn area with comfortable outdoor furniture. It is an ideal place to enjoy a cool drink during the hot summer evenings. To the right, there is another area with chairs, tables and canvas umbrellas, where one can have breakfast or dine during the summer months, or perhaps even have lunch during the first warm spring days.
Below the garden, in an enclosed area, there is the swimming pool, which is in use from mid-May to the end of September. The swimming pool overlooks a terraced olive grove and, during the hot summer hours is shaded by centuries-old, maritime pine trees. Near the pool is a lovely hot tub.
All the bedrooms are equipped with air conditioning, mini bar, private safe, and television. The bathrooms are all hand painted with travertine marble. Each is equipped with hairdryers and a full set of bath towels. Pets are allowed at extra cost.
