On the entrance floor of the castle, above the vast cellars, centered around a grand and elegant courtyard there are multiple large reception rooms and other interconnecting courtyards and staircases, some secretive and others not, creating a magical and grand atmosphere. This floor also houses some fantastic bedroom suites with direct access to the gardens. The floors above contain a richly decorative and impressive stream of suites, all wonderfully different in design and style, adding to the legend of the castle having received many important and historical visitors over the centuries. There is a romanesque-style chapel, built in 1594, beautiful terraced gardens, a secluded swimming pool area and an impressive and important grotto with mythical creatures and figures in gold mosaic and shells. There are also some important works of art throughout the property including a room entirely decorated by the painter Gino Severini in 1921 and works by Sanci, Ulivelli and Nesi. The formal garden was designed and implemented by Sir George Sitwell on the style of his Yorkshire home in England.
In total there are 10 Ha of land, one of which is of parkland with 300 year old cypress trees and a lake; with the rest of the land made up of olive groves and pasture.
