why choose castelfalfi

In a league of its own, Castelfalfi stands apart from the rest. Surrounded by the dreamy Tuscan hills, yet within reach of Florence and Pisa, Castelfalfi offers the rare opportunity to call this treasure trove of history, culture and natural beauty your home away from home. A working estate that has remained unchanged throughout the centuries, Castelfalfi is a place to explore, a place to enjoy, a place to cherish. Standing proud in the Tuscan countryside, Castelfalfi is truly a place where time stands still.

The village or ‘Borgo’ di Castelfalfi was established in around 700AD, seven centuries before the Renaissance, by the Lombard King Faolfi. The Castle or ‘Castrum’, combined with the Faolfi’s name, is believed to have led to ‘Castelfalfi’, which first appeared on a map in 754. Some four hundred years later Castelfalfi was acquired by the Bishop of Volterra prior to becoming a residence of the Medici’s in the 15th Century. As the centuries past and industrialisation took its hold, the Borgo castle and hunting villa experienced a slow decay as people drifted to the cities. It was only this century that the commitment was made to revive and restore the village.

Today the Borgo is a place of winding streets, of unexpected vistas and hidden squares, of retailers and restaurants, boutiques, galleries, annual festivals and fiestas. With amenities including restaurants, boutiques and leisure facilities, residents of Castelfalfi understand that a Tuscan life is a life well lived.
