800-year-old medieval hamlet in Tuscany opens its doors to guests

Toscana Resort Castelfalfi is an 800-year old medieval hamlet in Tuscany, restored and developed to welcome visitors by its present owner, TUI, a European-based tourism company. The Toscana Resort Castelfalfi project started in 2007 following a decades’ long migration of its inhabitants in the 1960s when locals moved to bigger cities for work.
Castelfalfi  covers more than 2,700 acres of vineyards, olive groves, woods, and lakes. The first part of the property’s development and transformation, now completed, was focused on renovating the ancient borgo with 41 carefully restored apartments, preserved to maintain the charm of Tuscan architecture. The focal point of the borgo is the Castle, currently under restoration and with a Spring 2014 reopening; the Castle will feature a gourmet restaurant and a wine bar with an amazing terrace overlooking the verdant countryside.
Scattered throughout the estate are 18 Casali, the traditional Tuscan farmhouses where the families that cultivated the land of Castelfalfi used to live, with the adjoining stables, barns, annexes and the typical garrets. The buildings are rustic and robust, mainly made of stone according to the tradition of this region, and will be renovated according to buyers needs and expectations. Two of these farmhouses have already been completed and are available to purchase or to rent for short periods.
Castelfalfi is renowned for its challenging and beautiful golf, two scenic courses for a total of 27 holes and over 9.400 meters of hillside greens nestled between olive groves.
The village is located in Montaione, in the Province of Florence, Tuscany, about 60 minutes from Florence airport and 40 minutes from Pisa Airport.
