Owner description: Castello Sonnino is one of the few untouched dwellings in Tuscany and is strategically situated in the village of Montespertoli : only 20 km from Florence on the ancient and beautiful Etruscan road to Volterra . It is part of the Italian Historical Dwelling Association ( ADSI ). Castello Sonnino, which previously belonged to the Machiavelli 's , was purchased by the Baron Isacco Sonnino at the beginning of the 19th century , is composed by different architectural structures, where the oldest parts are the XIII century Tower and the Chapel ( now one of the Castle's apartments ) .The main building , the " Villa " , dated from the XVI century still contains the historical Archives of the Prime Minister Barone Sidney Sonnino with all the documents regarding the First War World , the Treaty of Versailles and his Library. Castello Sonnino is now the home of the Baron Alessandro e Baroness Caterina de Renzis Sonnino . In the premises it's also located an Enoteca with a Restaurant which is open everyday from 9 am to 8 pm . We daily offer wine tastings with tours of the Winery included the monumental cellars, light lunches, dinners, and tours of the Castle and the Tower. Better to book in advance. Starting from Spring 2014, besides the flat in the Tower (2 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room and kitchen), we can offer to our guests more accomodation in the newly restored apartments of the Winemaker and Farmhouse. Both furnished in the local country style of last century, using only antique furnitures coming from the old rooms of the castle. In the Farmhouse: three bedrooms, two bathrooms, very big kitchen with big old fireplace, and sitting room. Large private garden where is possible to relax in the shade of the Tower. The Winemaker apartment: three double bedrooms with three bathrooms and kitchen. Terrace with breathtaking view of the Montespertoli valley with the Sonnino vineyards. In front of the terrace is the old "Aia" of the winery where is possible to relax and enjoy a great Chianti sunset.
