Anqua is a 16th Century castle built on the ruins of a 12th Century castle. It still belongs to the same family who originally built it, one of the oldest of Siena. It is situated on a hill near Radicondoli in the Sienese countryside with wonderful views of the plain below. The enormous estate which surrounds Anqua is cultivated with vineyards, olive groves and woodland. The beautiful and evocative rural setting is breathtaking -as far as the eye can see, there are farmlands, hay fields, olive trees, old farmhouses, ancient towers and castles. Farm workers live in the borgo. The castle itself has a real aura and atmosphere of the past with its antique furniture, beds with testers and old portraits adorning the walls. The character and the atmosphere of this very special property make it a totally unique experience for a holiday.
