My best friend and I drove down from Geneva for a weekend (next time I think we would fly). Antonio, who owns the castle and all the land was a our personal tour guide for the weekend.

We just came back from a week here. The surroundings are lovely, the pool is clean but a bit too chilly for children. Our bed was pretty uncomfy and rickety.The place was fairly dirty. The cottage was self catering but with no spare work surface or sharp knives this was a bit of a joke... I found this very hard... More

Antonello M, Owner at Castello di Santa Cristina, responded to this review

Thank you for your good comments about our staff & our horses. About your cottage, we are sorry for the absensce of sharp knives & the fact it wasn't clean enough for your standards. Maybe the fact that we checked you in with the cleaning still going on for not making you wait, it didn't help our staff finish properly.... More

I have just returned for what I can only describe as a very special time at Castello Di Santa Cristina. The horses are beautiful, well trained and properly cared for.

My daughter and I recently stayed at Castello di Santa Cristina and had a wonderful time! (Our only regret is that we could not have stayed longer!)

We came from Rome for the weekend and found this to be perfect for a couples break. Arriving late on Friday night we took advantage of a good homemade meal with lots of wine and friendly service before going to sleep in the peaceful and comfortable room. In the morning we had a good breakfast within the little castle then... More

Just spent a week at Castello di Santa Cristina and loved every moment. It’s deep in the Italian countryside and breathtakingly beautiful. We had just spent four days in very busy Rome, so Santa Cristina’s relaxing atmosphere was most welcome.

Whether you are looking for a place to relax, hike, mountain bike or horseback ride, this is the place to be. This working farm is situated on approximately 250 beautiful acres and there is a well preserved castle that has been in Antonello's family (the owner) since the 1700s. A tour of the castle is part of the stay and... More

We were a group of family and friends and stayed here for 5 nights. The surroundings and property are very beautiful. We enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and the horseback riding.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located at the borders of Lazio, Umbria & Tuscany, one and a half hours from Rome, half way between Orvieto and Siena, the breathtakingly splendid 17th century castle, Castello di Santa Cristina, (complete with fairytale turret) has been the property of the noble Caterini family for generations. Over the past ten years, the castle' s nearby 18th Century ivy-covered farmhouse and out-buildings have been carefully restored to retain their authenticity and separated into 8 self-catering cottages and 14 bedrooms with Bed & Breakfast for guests, furnished with original pieces, can offer you unique country holidays. A perfect location if you are looking at farmhouse holidays where you can explore the various neighboring historic towns including Orvieto, Sorano, Acquapendente and Grotte Di Castro. We offer sensational Tuscan cuisine, fantastic cooking courses and unique weddings in the castle grounds. The Castello di Santa Cristina is also an ideal place for a horse riding holiday. On our exciting trail excursions, we travel as far as Proceno, Lake Bolsena and to the beautiful nature reserve Selva Del Lamone. Riding lessons are something you should not miss when on a holiday with children. Always on the spot you find our swimming pool, the tennis court, a mini football pitch & the possibility to rent bikes. ... more   less
