Castello del Granduca – Campiglia – Tuscany Coast
10 Bedrooms / Suites - Pool
Castello del Granduca is a splendid historical home, just opposite the Island of Elba, which looks out onto an olive grove and is within easy reach of many artistically and historically interesting Tuscan towns and cities. Its gardens guarantee complete privacy. Its architecture, furnishings and décor are of late 16th century noble Tuscan style. On entering the rear garden of the Castello, via the double glass doors at the end of the entrance hall, there is a well kept rose bed and lawn area with comfortable outdoor lounges; ideal place to have pre dinner drinks or something cool to drink during the hot summer evenings. To the right a patio with chairs, tables and canvas umbrellas where one could easily have breakfast or dine during the summer months, or perhaps even have lunch during the first warm spring days. At the end of the garden we find the swimming pool, cordoned off by a gate, which is able to be used from mid-May to the end of September. The swimming pool overlooks a split level olive grove and, during the hot summer hours is shaded by historical pine trees. There is also a “Jacuzzi” pool that can be used all year round and a nice “fit space “ with few machines. This zone also has changing room, and a bathroom.
The Castello del Granduca is designed on two floors. On the ground floor, we find a very important entrance hall enriched with oil paintings and furnished with an important 18th century wooden table.
On entering, to the left of the entrance hall is a small sitting room, containing an antique wooden desk, a bookcase, and the Internet access (ADSL). At the end of the entrance hall, and to the left we reach another sitting room with a fireplace and a bar in the corner, and we can also access the small and intimate living room richly furnished with an antique chest, two very comfortable lounges covered in a rich damask fabric, satellite television, VCR/CD/DVD player. On the right hand side of the entrance hall, there is a ceramic tiled and well lit dining room, where guests will enjoy their buffet breakfast, along with lunch and dinner should they so choose. At the end of this dining room, one has access to a much smaller and very intimate dining room and the kitchen. The first floor can be reached via two staircases. At the end of the first staircase, we come across a lovely suite with a large terrace (Suite 7). Its décor is in the scale of green. Beside this suite, we find two double bedrooms (Rooms 5 & 6) and another suite (Suite 4). The tower can also be accessed from this wing of the castle, which hosts a junior suite (Room 11). Descending this staircase one has access to the mezzanine level, where we find another double bedroom (Room 9), a junior suite (Room 8) and the staircase which leads to an attic, it too with a junior suite ( Suite 10). This room features exposed wood beams and a commanding view of the landscape. The second staircase, to the right of the entrance hall is a grand structure furnished with two antique suits of armour. It leads to the imposing Grand Duke’s bedroom ( Suite 3). This suite looks out onto both the front and rear gardens, and is painted cardinal red. It also contains antique furnishings, including a 17th century bed head, bookcases and grand piano. This second staircase also leads to another two suites (Suites 1 & 2), one which overlooks the southern garden and the other which looks out onto the northern garden.
All the bedrooms are equipped with air conditioning, mini bar, private safe, colour satellite television, telephone with independent external line and modem access, radio and personal alarm clock.
