  1. Full description

    Villa Castelfiorentino is steeped in history. Its origins date back to the early years of the 13th century when a powerful Longobard clan from the Elsa valley, the Conti Albertis, chose this as the site for their castle. It was later converted into the elegant villa you can see today. The Conti Alberti family owned the property until the 17th century and traces of the original 13th century fort in the square brick tower and the walls alongside are still discernible.

    Ground Floor: The front door gives onto a large, cosy living room with fireplace. On the left, a beautiful marble staircase connects to the first floor. From the living room a corridor provides access to the rest of the house. The spacious and fully equipped kitchen, on the right, has terracotta flooring and beamed ceilings. Along the corridor, beyond a guest bathroom, there is a sumptuous dining room with French windows that access the courtyard. Further on, the living room with fireplace has a reading room alcove with TV. To the right, a double bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with a jacuzzi bath.

    First Floor: At the top of the marble staircase, a long corridor leads to the bedrooms. On the right there is a double bedroom - again with ensuite bathroom with shower and jacuzzi bath. To the left there are two twin bedrooms - both with their own bathrooms one with shower and bath the other with shower. Towards the end of the corridor on the left a double bedroom with outside balcony overlooks the front courtyard. It is next to its own bathroom with both shower and jacuzzi bath. There is also a laundry room and second staircase leading down to the ground floor.

    Description of the medieval annexe: The 13th century tower alongside the villa (part of the original castle) has its own access. From the living room on the ground floor a staircase takes you up to a double bedroom which is decorated with a lovely old fresco and which has a cosy fireplace. The bedroom has its own small bathroom with shower.
