A truly exclusive home, it is surrounded by an Italian garden cultivated with myrtle, roses and peonies, which is visible from all the castle's windows. An ample outdoor garden area furnished and fully equipped is the ideal place to greet guests and friends in the midsummer nights. TECHNICAL DETAILS LOCATION Situated at the edge of the tree-filled, tufa-soil zone east of Vignano that slopes with a series of villas, woods and olive groves towards the more stark and less-populated area of the Crete Senesi, the Castello delle Quattro Torra with its four angular towers and battlements, its lovely,austere courtyard recalling that of the City Hall, and its characteristic stairway, the castle commands attention and arouses the curiosity of anyone passing through this area near Siena. The castle originally belonged to the Cinughis, an aristocratic feudal family from Siena. During the war of Siena (1555), the castle saw eventful vicissitudes: tradition holds that the Marignano lodged here, and in this unfortunate episode the extravagant furnishings Giovanni Bichi had filled it with were lost. With the fall of Siena, the castle s story ends: with peace restored, it became simply a picturesque and quiet country residence, which still today lends an original touch to the landscape and recalls a time not so long ago but in many ways tormented by the struggles that had always tainted the peaceful enjoyment of so many of the delights God has given to men. Since 1885, the castle has been inhabited and conserved by the same ancient noble family. Recent studies have suggested that the Castello delle Quattro Torra could be the one painted by Ambrogio Lorenzetti in this fresco mural The Allegory of Good Governement in Siena s Palazzo Pubblico.
