Castel of Valenzano

Discover the medieval roots of Valenzano Castle, a jewel dating back to before the 10th century, when the mighty fortified nucleus belonged to the Lombard nobles. Through the ages, the castle’s destiny intertwined with that of Arezzo, passing into the hands of the powerful Tuscan Ubertini family in the 13th century.

During the 14th century, under the rule of the Tarlati, the fortress expanded with the majestic construction of a second tower, a tangible sign of its evolution. In the 15th century, Count Ghino Rondinelli inherited the fief, beginning a long era of belonging to his illustrious family that would last over four hundred years.

In the 19th century, the castle underwent a momentous transformation thanks to Giovanangelo Bastoni and his wife Clementina Rondinelli. Renovation work, which began between 1885 and 1890, gave the castle the grandeur and neo-Gothic style that we admire today, with marble decorations, merlons and mullioned windows with two lights that give the residence a fairytale aura.

Located just 30 minutes from the A1 Arezzo exit and an hour from Florence, Siena, Cortona, Perugia and the Chianti region, Castello di Valenzano is a historical and architectural treasure. Immersed in the beauty of the valley, at the foot of the Casentino forest park, the castle welcomes visitors with an evocative portal, flanked by a tree-lined avenue leading through an enchanting park, populated by centuries-old plants.

Experience the atmosphere of times past as you explore the walls, battlements and towers that narrate the thousand-year existence of the Valenzano Castle. A unique experience amidst castles, monasteries and Romanesque churches, in a place where history and beauty come together in an unforgettable combination.
