On the old road leading to Aosta, less than an hour from Turin, on top of a rocky outcrop overlooking the small village below and the beautiful countryside in the mountains of Piedmont and Aosta Valley is located the Castello di Montestrutto. It was built in neo-Gothic style around a tower of the 9th century. A panoramic staircase leads to the castle's garden. The property, of about 800 square meters, internally consists of a large entrance, frescoed with scenes that reflect the history of the Castle, a richly decorated hallway, a living room and a large dining room with adjacent kitchen. On the first floor there are the stateroom, a studio room, the master bedroom and several other bedrooms. The castle is in excellent condition and it is currently used as tourist accommodation.

    Not really sure when they built this around the 9th century tower.

    Wow, I’ve never really thought about living in a castle in Italy, but if I did, this would be it. After several others in need of extensive work, this is just beautiful and the views are stupendous. Holy, moly, I am smitten.

    This property actually seems like a bargain to me. That really is a million dollar (or more) view!

      I thought the exact same thing. In what world does a property of this magnitude and history go for this price. If someone said it was 14.5 million it would not surprise me but under 2 million ? I’m absolutely shocked.

    This would be the best spent $1.7 Mil in the history of the world, except maybe to save someone’s life.

    I never realized until I went there that they don’t have property insurance like in the states. You can spend almost $2mil on a castle and if it crumbled to the ground tomorrow you’d just be out that almost $2mil! Craziness….

    Something tells me most of this was built in the late 1800’s.

    I’ve been looking at castle properties for the last 20yrs and over time I’ve found that the closer something looks to a fairytale, the newer it is. There was a huge market in the 1800’s for “picturesque” properties and though this might have started as a 9thC tower, I’m sure whatever was left of the tower was used as a base and all the Romeo & Juliet details and extra wings were added later. There are tons of French chateaux built the same way… beautiful towers, Gothic dormers, gargoyles, etc. But all relatively new.

    My rules of thumb for castles (I have a few 🙂 ); the more plain and boring they are, the older they’ll likely be. The more ornamented and detailed the exterior of an true OLD castle is, the more boring the interior; and the more boring the exterior of a truly old castle, the more interesting the interiors.

    When I hunt the Castle sales websites, I look for old boring buildings, and that’s where I’ll usually find interiors with large stone walls, walk-in fireplaces, overhead beams, etc. All the juicy stuff that screams, “castle”.

    Anyway… this is a gorgeous property, extremely well kept up (another clue it’s relatively new), and the price seems appropriate. And, what a view of the peasantry!

    Holy Amazing! Maybe I should move to Europe.

  14. AvatarKfidei says: 346 comments

    I agree with everyone… the VIEW! Mamma Mia! I also was quite charmed by the fact that even in $1.7 mil AWESOME castles, they still put white slipcovers on. Makes me feel much more posh now 🙂

    If we all chip in, we can run it as a hotel for part of the year, and take turns staying there in the off season. (I would live in a tent on the grounds for that view!)

    I recall reading somewhere that Italy has a “right of return” for any descendant of a property owner, whereby they can reclaim their “family home” even after you’ve purchased it.

    That would be interesting, if you put out 1.7 mil and a bit later someone else said, “mine”.

    Wow, it looks like a museum! Just like Sean pointed out it must have been restored not long ago but the final result is stunning!

    That price is the same as an average condo on Miami Beach! Amazing property!

    Sure it’s worth even multimillion dollars, but recently Italy even given away properties for free due to the less population and business boom that they need !
