The property at stake is 13 acres, including a 300 square meters Villa. The Villa's chalet style architecture designed by the Italian owner Amina Arrigoni Moskoff, the estate's unique location right next to an excellently preserved medieval Castle and the Moskoff family history's reputation as philanthropists, make this property a local landmark known to thousands of visitors.
