DescriptionCastello di Magona is a splendid historical home, just opposite the Island of Elba and within easy reach of many artistically and historically interesting Tuscan towns and cities. Its architecture, furnishings and décor are of late 16th century noble Tuscan style. Its beautiful gardens guarantee complete privacy.
Castello di Magona is designed on two floors.
The Castle’s entrance hall is enriched with oil paintings and furnished with an important 18th century wooden table. To the left of this hall is a small sitting room, containing an antique wooden desk (RECEPTION), a bookcase, and sitting area. 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. Here we can also access 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 luminous and 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 with a large terrace (Suite 7), decorated in a soothing shade of green. Near the suite, there are 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 commanding view of the landscape.
On entering the rear garden of the Castello, 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 hot tub and fitness corner with various gym equipment. This area also has a changing room with a bathroom.
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.
