Il Castello del Calcione is an ancient family-owned estate. It is a castle surrounded by untouched woods, lakes, wildlife, farmhouses, olive groves, horses, authenticity and a lot of freedom.

It lies at the heart of Tuscany, away from the beaten track, between the cities of Siena and Arezzo. 

Whether you come in search of culture, art, or history, to celebrate a special anniversary, to enjoy a relaxing or adventurous vacation, or  to settle down and just experience country life for a while, you will find what you are looking for. 

There is truly something special about this place and a sincere wish to share this haven of wilderness and peace with like-minded souls in a creative way, honoring its history, and writing a new chapter of it.


The earliest records of Calcione date back to 984 AD, a contract drawn up “in castrum Calcionis”. Throughout the centuries Calcione has gone through a great variety of identities. From a fortress-monastery, to an important Florentine military outpost, an old border rampart, an agricultural epicenter with a strong focus on innovation, to a modern country house. Angelo Lotteringhi della Stufa bought Calcione on the 27th September 1483. Since then, history, tradition and quality of life unite this ancient family to this place. Its thousand year history can be discovered by booking a visit of the castle.


The family always prioritized conservation, in the pursuit of serenity in this unspoiled and magical landscape. Scattered around the hills of Calcione are several former farmhouses, tastefully renovated, balancing innovation with the conservation of the original architectural structure and character. Their spacious and pleasant interiors combine the elegant atmosphere of historic buildings with all modern comforts. The ideal place to rest in between all the outdoor activities that Calcione has to offer.


There are many ways to discover the nature surrounding Calcione. Starting with the tennis court immersed in the olive groves, or exploring the big lake with canoes; many different activities can fill up your days at Calcione. The property can be toured on the back of a horse, with e-bikes, or simply walking around the trails in the forest. Another fun way to learn about the grounds and the soil could be experiencing a truffle hunt with an expert and his dog, which could then end with a nice truffle dinner at the castle.


The castle and its surroundings are a very spacious place. That is also why it can be used to assemble a big number of people within a pleasant artistic and historical context. A wide range of spaces is available to satisfy every need for individuals, companies, professional associations, and others. Perfect for the warm season, the gardens’ structure is the ideal setting for weddings, events, concerts, corporate dinners and conferences, as well as the two big courtyards inside the castle.
