Close to Palaia, this castle and hamlet are located on top of a sun-drenched hill, with spectacular views. The skilful and painstaking restoration of the hamlet and castle, now completed after three years of work, has breathed new life into this splendid property originally built in the 12th century and now offering several apartments still for sale.
