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.
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.

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.

The bedroom has its own small bathroom with shower.
