The Borgo
and our history

The history of Castelfalfi

The story of Castelfalfi stretches back centuries. While its owners changed over the years, each ensured the village retained its original architecture, albeit with their own touch. The village first appeared on a map in 754 A.D., about 50 years after it was established by the Lombard King Faolfo, from which derives the name Castelfalfi (Castrum - Faolfo, meaning Faolfo's Castle). It was eventually taken over by the Caetani family, who renovated Faolfo’s hilltop castle and transformed the village into a Renaissance residence. The village was restored and revived in the last century.

Medieval village in the heart of Tuscany

The Castle

The castle that King Faolfo built on the fortress massif was composed of two towers to protect and control the valley along the road between Lucca and Siena. A few years later in 1489, Giovanfrancesco Caetani and Costanza de' Medici married here, electing it for their home and transforming it into a stately residence. The Biondi family took possession of Castelfalfi after the Caetani, contributing to the estate’s agricultural development with wine and tobacco production. In the last century, the village was restored and revived for hospitality and real estate, bringing new life to Castelfalfi for the last twenty years.

Costanza de’ Medici

As evidence of the noble Florentine family's presence, some artefacts were found in Castelfalfi, including a marble insignia and a portrait of Costanza de’ Medici. The insignia is still present nowadays in our medieval castle, while the portrait is now stored in the National Gallery in London.
