  • By the geocaching we are there by the woods near the Castle. Once there, we were shocked that it is in a State of decay. What sins. On the Internet we can read that they want to fix up but if it's still long will need it any more. I hope that the authorities soon may start for road rot. ...

  • Well what can I say: excellent, you remain speechless admiring so much beauty, the dream of the Orient with the sum of many cultures in one place. The mad genius of Marquis Panciatichi was the realization of this castle of which we were lucky enough to be within the rare visits organized by the Committee to save this immense artistic heritage. The Peacock Room, the Hall of mirrors, of music, of lovers, India, Spain, from the throne, to Iran. And all the Woods around, with ancient trees, the twin Redwoods, trees of 10 meters in diameter, the wonder of wonders. For me and my husband has fulfilled a dream that hunted for years, who will take home as one of the finest trips we have made, perhaps the most beautiful, certainly the most beautiful indeed.

  • Get to the Castle you can, via a bus that connects directly with the station of Santa Maria Novella in Florence. It costs 7 euro (each way) because it is the one taking the Japanese to go shopping at "The Mall" where there are only big names, and which is right at the foot of the forest to get to Sammezzano. (you can in case Park there for free if you come by car). But apart from get on the bus with backpack and sneakers feeling a bit inadequate, is very convenient, because it makes no stops in between. After about 50 min. you arrive and ignoring the various two-storey buildings of various Gucci, Armani ecc.ecc. with much of the course, we headed into the Woods and the mind can finally enter into another dimension. Despite being July, into the Woods the heat not perceived or almost. Thanks to founder who in addition to the Castle, he embellished the park with beautiful American redwoods that I had never seen in my life. Tall, big and reddish stem, more than one hundred (numbered) beautiful. The road is easy, slow halls without slope and allows you to admire them in peace, a true relaxing walk in the fairy tale forest. Americana ... then came in on the view opens with an expanse of green lawn like those of Ireland and the castle of Sammezzano in the middle. I thought to find it in pieces, in fact from the outside if they note degradation, but the Interior is still beautiful! Some urge a restoration, it also lacks electricity, but the spaces are immense and airy. I recommend a visit in the morning to appreciate the colors, how I was lucky enough to do. Definitely worth a visit! The stucco and the notches on the ceilings are reminiscent of the Alhambra in Granada, with the difference that these being recent House of the twentieth century, are made with chalk, but are beautiful for crafting and coloring. Truly a rainbow of colors and originality! If you are lucky enough to be on the list for tickets, go for it! The volunteers then are very knowledgeable. Beautiful visit!

  • I used to stay here as a child with my parents many moons ago when it used to be a Hotel. I still remember the nice staff that always played with my brothers and me while my parents went to close by Florence for business. And of course the amazing rooms inside. The Hotel was always empty and we had the place so to speak to ourselves. It is such a shame that the place closed down and is currently just falling apart - due to a 'conflict' between the current owners. I had the luck of arranging a visit, and all these fairytale memories of mine about this place came back to live and proofed to be not just a dreams...
  • A P R I T E L O O O !!!
  • Da vedere assolutamente
  • Even if it's a fad of a rich landowner. Shame to leave places deteriorate! Beautiful park with beautiful redwoods!
