Spend the Christmas holidays in an ancient castle in the snow-covered Italian Alps. Sited high on a pinnacle overlooking the Dolomites Mountains, Tuenno Village, and the Adige River is a castle that has been owned by the same family for over 12 centuries. The unusual history of ownership has resulted in a continuity of maintenance and restoration almost impossible to find in similar structures today. The castle is 35,521 square feet with 16 bedrooms, 18 baths and a grand hall with a 15th century fresco. Over the centuries, the family has added original furnishings and antiques, a rare collection of important objects and valuable antique paintings. All of the castle’s technical and mechanical systems have been updated and it's move-in ready.

The home is spread out over 1.36 acres with 6,700 square feet of open living space around a grassy yard with a pool, spa and mountain views.

Joe Kennedy made much of his wealth in the film industry and owned a major Hollywood studio where he met Gloria Swanson.

The 24,000 square foot house sits on 5 landscaped acres with 8 bedrooms, 14 baths, 4 kitchens and an aviary.
