Is it possible to visually capture the smell of rosemary, the taste of fresh olive oil, the sound of chirping cicadas, the lightness of being, and 800 years of history?
In Castelfalfi there are countless possibilities to try your luck – because it is a place that appeals to all your senses.
For example, during a morning stroll through the medieval alleys along walls decorated by the Medici emblem, past vineyards nestled on gentle hills, along the seemingly endless, winding paths to the horizon – photo locations await you at every corner, one more spectacular than the other.
The breathtaking landscape makes any photo-filter obsolete because in Castelfalfi the brightest colours dominate.
Colours such as the the crystal clear waters of the Piscine di Castelfalfi, reflecting the blue of the sky, are present everywhere. There are four swimming pools, the largest being 30 meters long.
The spacious terrace with its noble sunbeds offers a view of a sea of pines, cypresses and olive groves: a scenery that lends infinity to the moment. The green of the Castelfalfi Golf Club is also something to be seen: Built according to the principles of sustainability, the 27-hole golf course is one of the most beautiful and challenging in Tuscany.
Thanks to state-of-the-art water reservoirs and treatment facilities, the fairways shine in the richest colours all year round. On one side the imposing Castello, from higher tees the view into the distant Volterra, and always surrounded by the enchanting Macchia – playing golf here seems like a dream.
No less spectacular backdrops can be found on a horse riding trip: thanks to the cooperation with a nearby riding stable, the unique Castelfalfi estate can also be explored on horseback.
Those who prefer a ride on two wheels can rent a bike or a Vespa – more Dolce Vita is hardly possible!
And when the sun finally sinks over the endless landscape in the evening, the hills around the Borgo turn dark red and become works of art in the sky, it becomes clear that the perfection of the moment cannot be photographed, because it is only anchored in the here and now.
One should nevertheless try: to share, to remember, and to bring it into the present again and again.
