Castello di Magona

A Sixteenth Century Palace on the Estruscan Riviera

The Castello di Magona (also called Castello Leopoldo) has its origins in the 16th century on the foundations of an even older palace.  For many years it was a residence of the Grand Dukes of Tuscany, culminating in the final Duke, Leopoldo II, who abdicated in 1859.

We chose the Castello di Magona for our very first Code in a Castle program because it is the quintessential European castle, but modernized for luxury stays.  It really is the perfect combination of historical interest and comfort.  Approached along a cypress-lined ridge-top drive the castle has spectacular views over the surrounding countryside and out to the ocean, including the island of Elba that lies just off shore.

The interiors include rooms with coffered and painted ceilings, frescoes, antique furniture, and art.  There are many public areas including three sitting rooms and a bar.   Outside there is are a rose garden, terraces, and a crystal-clear swimming pool along with ample parking for all. 


As with all our venues, we will have exclusive use of the entire complex for the week.
