WHY WE LOVE IT

La Limonaia di Celsa setting is one of exceptional beauty, a combination of rich woodlands, famous Italianate manicured gardens and a stunning castle with the vestiges of its history still intact. The Limonaia, which was built with a south facing facade to house the potted citrus trees during winter was thoughtfully restored with the owners' excellent design sensibility.
