There are few holiday experiences that can prepare one for the splendour of the imposing 11th century Castello, steeped in history and dominating the small hamlet surrounding it. The dramatic and beautiful vistas, stunning gardens, picturesque narrow streets, the restaurant, church and restored theatre all provide an enchanting setting for the five beautiful houses and two apartments available to rent.
When the present owners acquired the hamlet they had the vision to restore, refurbish and revitalise this former medieval Castello and its surrounding buildings.
One arrives in Fighine by driving through picturesque countryside: it is difficult to believe that the occasional glimpse of the Castello high up through the trees is your destination.
Its defence of Siena in the past was of such strategic importance that they still fly the Castello Fighine flag at the World famous Palio in Siena, to show their gratitude.
