The 39,826-square-foot estate, which was at various times the seat of the house of Ivrea, Savoy, and the Holy Roman Emperor Otto I, was built between the 9th and 14th centuries. The property features 35 square miles of parks and gardens that can accommodate up to 300 guests, according to Curbed.

But the property isn’t strictly medieval. The castle was carefully restored by the famous architect Alfredo D’Andrade. And again, in 1992, air conditioning was added to the building’s 30 bedrooms and 47 bathrooms. Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing. [Curbed]Christopher Cameron
