What dreams are made of
Imagine a haven of serenity where time stands still and noise fades away to birdsong. A retreat from the world nestled in the natural beauty of Tuscany. A dreamland where you can stroll around an elegant medieval hamlet, catching glimpses of the castle as you pass enchanting stone cottages that whisper stories of long ago. A place for taking time to watch the sunrise over misty vineyards and then, come evening, gaze at the vast night sky, aperitivo in hand.
Welcome to Castelfalfi, a dreamscape where time stands still.
You slowly awaken from a peaceful night’s sleep and gently open the curtains of your room. As the first rays of the morning sun caress the rolling slopes and vineyards beyond your picture window or balcony, you would be forgiven for thinking that you are still in a state of dreaming.

The Borgoand 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.
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.
