Originally constructed in the 11th century, this six-bedroom castle has been lavishly restored to its original brilliance and offers luxurious accommodations for up to twelve people.  Volognano has been splendidly furnished with beautiful and comfortable Tuscan antiques.  The castle has one of the most unique and stunning swimming pools we have ever seen flowing from the indoor limonaia (lemon house) to the outside Roman gardens.
