Castelfalfi is a perfect patch of Tuscan life, set just half an hour from San Gimignano. Having recently emerged from an extensive restoration project, this breathtaking village offers plenty of rustic charm. Wander the atmospheric 800-year-old streets, admire spectacular countryside views and immerse yourself in rural life. With an overall area of 1,000 hectares – more than three times that of Monaco – the Castelfalfi estate is a carefully maintained slice of Italy, complete with vineyards and honey-hued farmhouses.
When it comes to getting out and about, you’ll find Castelfalfi to be ideally situated for a Tuscan escape. The many-towered medieval town of San Gimignano can be reached in just half an hour by car, while the twin delights of Siena and Florence are only 40 miles away, making this a great location from which to explore Tuscany’s sights.
