Owner description: The Castle, a feud of the branches of the Malaspina del Ramo Fiorito holdings from the fourteenth to the eighteenth century, is of great importance historically, and above all, architecturally. The construction of the massive fortress, which merges with the underlying sandstone rock so the whole structure seems carved in stone, began in the second half of the twelfth century.

“A suggestion for a different holiday in Italy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2008

Last week I have visited the Fosdinovo Castle near the village of Sarzana. I found the property amazing and full of history (Dante wrote some chapters of his masterpiece in this castle). I have been told that in summer time, when the weather is not too cold, there is a sort of B&B service. Since the place has been up to now only a summer residence of the noble family there is an atmosphere of home and not hotel. For me this is very important!
