APARTMENT LA ROSA AT CASTELFALFI RESORT
Castelfalfi is a jewel set in the heart of Tuscany, a land that is historically rich in art, beauty, and culinary traditions. Its village, the Borgo, is framed by the natural wonder of its green hills, surrounded by kilometres of vineyards and olive groves, warm sun and a light breeze.
The apartment La Rosa opens its doors directly on the framework painted by the uncontaminated nature of Castelfalfi, with its supreme terrace with garden overlooking the Golf Club Castelfalfi and the woods of the wildlife reserve. The apartment, embellished by the finely restored ceiling, is an invitation to be together.
La Rosa, elegant and spacious, is the ideal place for a family holiday in Tuscany.
La Rosa extends on two levels in one of the main buildings of the Borgo of Castelfalfi. On the ground floor, a spacious living area with large French doors greets guests and leads into a large garden, with an unforgettable view over the Tuscan countryside.
The first bedroom is on the same floor, while other two bedrooms are located on the first floor of the apartment. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms and are decorated with a wooden beams. The furnishings are delicate and elegant and the interiors are inspired by the typical Tuscan colors.
Every detail of La Rosa reminds of Tuscany: from the terracotta floors to the wooden beams, and the wide volumes that may unite the whole family. Dining outdoors while enjoying the views over the hills will be an unforgettable experience for the guests of this apartment.
Spending time in this gorgeous property will let you experience the freedom of a holiday custom-designed for you: you can spend the day relaxing in the privacy of your garden or take advantage of the various services and activities offered by the Estate, getting all the help you'll need.
Castelfalfi is literally a slice of history come gloriously back to life. An 800-year-old estate once owned by the Medici family, it was all but abandoned during the 1960s, then taken over several years ago and transformed into a resort paying homage to the glory of what once was. At the heart of the property is the lovingly restored castle: Castelfalfi’s crown jewel, towering over the estate and, as of last year, home to La Rocca restaurant, helmed by Michelin-starred chef Michele Rinaldi.
Castelfalfi is the perfect destination for those who want to get away from the bustle of life, for those who want a marvellous interlude of pleasure but also for those looking for a more relaxed and peaceful lifestyle. Whatever your idea of a holiday looks like, full of activities or just doing nothing, staying in the village of Castelfalfi won't disappoint.
