Nights of Amore

Posted on: December 2nd, 2014 by Carrie Young 1 Comment

An 800-year old Medieval Tuscan village has been reincarnated into a luxury 21st century getaway. Toscana Resort Castelfalfi is a vacation destination that spreads over a hilly area between Pisa and Florence, offering unique and variegated views set in a mild Mediterranean climate. The 2,700 acre property is surrounded by rolling hills, vineyards, and olive groves- producing its own wine and olive oil-  and recently went through a $350 million renovation. The estate also boasts a boutique hotel, two restaurants, tennis court, swimming pool, rental villas and farmhouses, and a prestigious 27-hole gold course which is one of the most fascinating in terms of landscape and views. It is also one of the most challenging, built accordingly to principles of sustainability and without the addition of artificial elements.

The 31-room and suite hotel, La Tabacca, is housed in a former tobacco factory and there are more hotel openings slated for 2016. Stayng in one of Castelfalfi’s stunning private accommodations allows you to enjoy the freedom of a holiday with as much, or little, support you would like. And to appease the foodie in you, Michele Rinaldi- who earned his first Michelin star at the age of 27- oversees Rosso Toscano Cooking School and La Rocca di Castelfalfi restaurant, both ensconced in the village’s newly restored castle. Even Napolean would approve.
