Built as a fortress in the Xth century in the middle of the green countryside of central Friuli, in an enchanting, suitable area for élite weddings, this castle went through destruction and consequent restoration for years, until it was turned into a noble residence therefore losing its initial mainly defensive purpose.
The sturdy stone walls are softened by the presence of several vaulted windows and different openings that convey a gracious idea of architectural movement, though maintaining the sober features of the Roman style. Outdoor receptions are framed with the open, flourishing countryside and recall memories of past traditional royal ceremonies among the yellow gold of the fields, yet within the thick walls of the estate.
The Castle today is still lived in by the Countess that will open the doors of her home to you and your guests. She also likes to host in the quietness of the inner walls of the Castle VIP’s that come visit the area.
Sumptuous rooms and halls enriched with original 17th century frescoes, crenellated walls, patrol trenches, different towers of varying heights and a stronghold, and last but not least, the picturesque drawbridge, all convey a Middle Age princely atmosphere blended with the modern comfort of an exclusive venue that can rely on the efficiency and discreet professionalism of your event planners.
