Benvenuti nella nuova energia di un tempo diverso



Attraversa il tempo percorrendo le stanze del castello.

Dapprima palazzo nobiliare, poi residenza reale e infine luogo di comunità per tutti i govonesi, il castello taglia e connette i secoli. Visitarlo significa ritrovare le tappe che lo hanno portato ad essere il luogo dal carattere sfaccettato, e quindi unico, che è ora.



Govone extends beyond my walls. It is an entire community that takes care of the magnificent places it inhabits. I invite you to explore everything that surrounds me: the park and the gardens, the greenhouse, the intimate rose garden, the village, and the outdoor trails immersed in nature, which you can explore on foot or by bike.

The park, inhabited by squirrels, woodpeckers, jays, embraces the castle all around with its hedges of boxwood, beech trees, elms, and cypresses.

The gardens gather and showcase Maria Cristina's passion for botany, particularly for roses, displaying various splendid antique varieties.

The historic center extends the visit beyond the castle walls, revealing the authenticity of a village that, while continuing to live, preserves its memory.

The trails lead you along the edges of the constellation of which the castle is the protagonist, through fields, vineyards, and hazelnut groves, allowing you to discover the land.
