Castello di Sammezzano in Tuscany. Unbelievable beauty – an amazing private castle and park outside Reggello, Province of Florence. Simply amazing – such architecture and incredible work done in the 19th C by Fernando Paciatichi Ximenes d’Aragona 1813-1897.

There are guided tours 5/6 times a year and it is used as a photo and movie set but there is a huge waiting list,  for a guided tour. One day it will be opened regularly to the public. We just have to wait….

One of the movies filmed there, was “Il Racconto dei Racconti” by Garrone, was presented at the film festival in Cannes.

This is a long video but keep going until you see the amazing interior salons.
