A beautiful and timeless Tuscan castle in the heart of Val d'Elsa

Villa Cabbiavoli is an authentic Tuscan castle just outside of Florence built in 1210 by Count Alberti. The property has been completely restored but still keeps many traces of that period, which makes this rental holiday retreat so unique.

Set atop an idyllic hilltop amidst beautiful Tuscan countryside, the villa is the perfect choice for a family holiday or an unforgettable wedding in a timeless Italian fashion.

The garden offers guests a splendid view of the Tuscan landscapes as far as the towered town of San Gimignano in the horizon. The swimming pool is surrounded by an arcaded loggia and there is a shower and a fridge for the comfort of guests.

An ancient lemon house with six arched windows has been transformed into a charming lounge with a roof terrace.

Moreover, a 13th-century chapel dedicated to Saint Bartholomew containing a crypt is also part of the garden.

The ground floor of the castle is home to a large living room with a cosy fireplace and a magnificent dining room adorned with French windows opening out to the courtyard.

A second living room, decorated in earthy yellow tones, also has a fireplace along with a reading alcove with a TV, computer and communication systems for those catching up on work during their stay.

There is also a traditional, fully-equipped kitchen with beautiful terracotta flooring and beamed ceilings.

The ground floor also houses one of the double en-suite bedrooms, where Federico Barbarossa used to stay.

A traditional marble staircase leads guests to the first floor where four bedrooms are situated two doubles and two twins. 2 double rooms and 2 twin rooms. One of the double bedrooms has a private balcony overlooking the front yard. There is also a laundry room with wardrobe on this floor. A secondary staircase also gives access to the ground floor.

The 12th-century tower which is part of the original castle and stands alongside the villa features a living room on the first floor and a double en-suite bedroom. Privileged guests staying in the tower have the chance to enjoy breathtaking views from the private roof terrace.

The professional and friendly on-site staff of Villa Cabbiavoli will ensure that all guests’ needs and requests are handled with a great attention, allowing for a relaxing and memorable stay.

NB: Access to property is via an unpaved road of approximately 1.2 km. The estate also offers four independent farmhouses, which may be booked for up to 40 additional guests. Contact us for further details.
