DESCRIPTION

Framed by gracefully swaying cypresses, immersed in central Tuscany’s luxuriant countryside, Castello di Cabbiavoli appears like a dream vision, perched high atop a hill… Dating back to the 1200s, when it was built by the Alberti Counts, lords of Certaldo, the Castle rises in a superb position along the ancient Via Francigena, once the major commercial and pilgrimage route connecting France to Rome.

The Castle, still privately owned by an important Tuscan entrepreneur’s family, includes extensive grounds, shimmering swimming pool, private ancient Chapel and a truly superb historical villa. Offering unrivaled views of the vineyards and fields below and fully restored, the villa is an authentic noble Tuscan mansion, a real jewel and ideal venue for memorable vacations of all kinds, from celebrations to family reunions and friends’ parties. A gorgeous ancient family Chapel rises right in front of the main villa, and is accessible to guests for prayers and available to host weddings.

Featuring striking architectural details (the charming, romantic Tower for instance, which hosts 1 of the bedrooms) and precious, perfectly preserved, period dècor and materials - such as gorgeous cotto and marble, frescoes, ancient maps on the walls and exceptional furniture - the Villa boasts a unique aristocratic charm and grace. Wonderfully restored it offers guests the utmost well-being thanks to its diverse, ample spaces and luxurious facilities.

The villa comfortably accommodates up to 12 guests in its splendid, finely furnished, 6 double rooms; 3 of the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, each of the other 3 has its’ own private bathroom. One of the bedrooms is located in the romantic tower, all are exquisite. Each bedroom is characterized by a different, tasteful detail, such as a lovely fireplace in one, wrought iron bed frame in another, and then again canopies, sumptuous fabrics, frescoes or period dècor. The bathrooms are lovely and finely appointed; 4 of these also host Jacuzzis and the villa comprises a convenient guest/staff bathroom located on the ground floor, close to kitchen and dining room.

Stylishly decorated, the villa offers refined and comfortable indoor common areas and a magnificent garden, with lovely alfresco areas for relaxing and entertaining.
