Castel Valer, a restored medieval fortress at the edge of the Dolomites mountain range in northern Italy, goes under the gavel on Sept. 8. The historic property has descended in the same family for about 650 years.

Steeped in history while updated for the 21st century, the castle combines architecture from the Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque eras, according to New York-based Concierge Auctions. Its furnishings, from fine antiques to Venetian mirrors, will be included.

The property description reads:

Your splendid Dolomite castle can be a grand rental venue, a lavish hotel, or a luxurious family compound. With 80 rooms, a “Knights’ Hall” with five kitchens, conference/banquets rooms in the converted stables, and two chapels – one of which was awarded best renovated chapel in Europe – the options are endless. Not to mention the stunning grounds, including 12 acres of forest, 6 acres of apple orchards, and countless terraced gardens.

The property will go to the highest bidder (pre-qualified). It was previously valued at €35 million (or $38.8 million), according to Concierge Auctions.
