The term Castle derives from castellum which, in turn, derives from Castrum, a Latin term that refers to a military settlement. It is, in fact, in Roman times that we find the first elements of castles, architectural structures that become even more important with the advent of the barbarians. These peoples, nomads and mostly devoted to hunting and war, were also particularly ferocious and it was therefore required to fortify the already existing military facilities.

 
With the fall of the Roman Empire and the advent of the Middle Ages the decentralization of power required the creation of different types of fortification. At the beginning the scene was dominated by the watch towers whose purpose was primarily military.
 
The different economic and social structure, typical of the Middle Ages, then, required the creation of fortified towns. The castle became, therefore, the nucleus of a decentralized economy that, from the city, now moved to the countryside. That’s why the castle appeared as real fortified village.

In modern times, with the advent of various forms of fortification, the castle lost its defensive role. The various castles began, therefore, to be converted into residences for noble families.
Currently many of the castles in Italy and Europe are in need of renovation and therefore represent an unique opportunity to give a new life to a piece of history.
 
Owning a castle, live in a castle and, even more, to revive a castle is surely one of the most exciting experiences of life.

BEAUTIFUL CASTLE FOR SALE IN TRENTINO

In the beautiful Non Valley, nestled on top of a hill among the Alps, Castel Valer dominated the surrounding valley. The fortress dates back to the 13th century and has been owned by the noble Spaur family since 1368: the counts have masterfully restored the building over the last twenty years, preserving its medieval charm and creating something really unique, where one would think to have gone back to the Middle Ages.



MAJESTIC CASTLE FOR SALE IN PIEDMONT, LANGHE

On top of a rocky spur overlooking the beautiful landscape of Langhe (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), incredible late-19th-century Neogothic castle currently working as a hotel. Result of a masterful renovation carried out with great care and love by the current owners since the 1960s, the castle (with its annexes) includes nowadays a total of 25 bedrooms and a restaurant. The private wood (roughly 2.0 ha) is an excellent spot for truffles but a project to convert this plot of land into a Nebbiolo/Barolo vineyard has already been approved (as it was in the past).
