Castello Cortona, Estate of the Day
There aren't a lot of interior pictures on this one but it's still worth checking out. There aren't too many chances to own a medieval castle in Umbria, Italy. This one is located ten minutes from Cortona and Trasimeno Lake. It's clear that this spot was chosen hundreds of years ago for its defendable location atop a hill. The castle has been occupied for centuries and there are five buildings for a total of 19,000 square feet. The buildings include a church, guest quarters and even a prison. The walled fortress-like home includes expansive gardens within the castle walls and 32 acres, of surrounding olive groves. Parts of the manor dates back to year 1000 and the west façade, from the year 1500, all is perfectly original. This castle is listed for 13 million euros.
