Toscana Resort Castelfalfi – Tuscany, Italy
Your home in the heart of Tuscany
The Toscana Resort Castelfalfi is a former estate in the heart of Tuscany encompassing the historical Borgo, the village centre from the time of the Medicis, a vineyard and extensive olive groves. The estate was completely restored in 2011, breathing new life into it. With a development density of only 0.03% in 11 km², Castelfalfi is a piece of paradise and will always remain so!
Location and surroundings
The elevated location results in stunning views of the picturesque, incomparable Tuscan countryside with its mild climate all year round. The combination of nature, culture and sea make this location unique. The coast of the Riviera with its crystal-clear water can be reached in less than an hour and offers perfect opportunities to discover Italy’s unspoiled countryside in a convertible or on a vintage car rally. The resort can be easily reached from anywhere in Europe, e.g. via the international airports of Pisa and Florence.
Properties on offer
The centrepiece of the resort is the old Borgo, a medieval village that has been restored and divided into modern apartments. With its small shops, restaurants, bars, hotels and quiet spots such as the pool complex Le Piscine, the Borgo forms the heart of the Castelfalfi estate.
Thereare also various farmhouses in Castelfalfi, the Casali, which are also undergoing restoration in the typical Tuscan architectural style and in accordance with the wishes of their future owners. The Casali are dotted around the estate and are undoubtedly the jewels of the resort.
The construction site La Collina was developed in order to offer further apartments and villas in Castelfalfi, and here properties are under construction directly beside the golf course and offering the highest level of residential comfort. The properties available vary with regard to their size, location and floorplans, thereby fulfilling individual wishes and the demands made of a perfect second home. Seven different, exclusive golf villas can also be built in Castelfalfi. They will have a private pool and generous patio space as well as a garden that blends harmoniously with the landscape.
Apartments in the heart of the village “Borgo”
The apartments in the village are located in different areas, namely La Terrazza I, La Terrazza II, La Ghialla, Il Fienile di Ghialla, Lo Scrittoio and Il Giardino. By now there is only one 2-bedroom apartment in the area of Il Fienile di Ghialla available.
The “Casali” farmhouses
A total of 18 farmhouses are being restored on the estate which will be sold either divided into apartments or as a family home. The Casali are to be found in different locations and therefore meet individual requirements such as:
