Castello Vallone villa europe

Castello Vallone

This historic and elegant castello is situated in the heart of Tuscany. Its recent renovation to the highest standards has brilliantly exposed the character and charm of the 13th century home that offers the service and amenities that today's discerning travelers have come to expect. Having hosted captains of industry and academy award winning actors, it now awaits you, friends and family for a simply unforgettable experience in comfort, sophistication and service.


Once a fortified castle, the villa's history dates back to 1210, when the Counts Alberti of Certaldo built Caput Aulae at the center of the Val d'Elsa, later transforming it into an elegant country mansion. This aristocratic villa also once belonged to Signora Ester, the widow of Brandini of Castelfiorentino. 

Situated at around three kilometers from the village, which one can reach by a public road, is the hill of Mozzano, as it is called, where lay the ancient Pieve di Castelfiorentino. The villa still retains the original fortress walls as well as a square brick tower, which now has an elegant master suite with access to the tower's roof.  

A spectacular wine cellar located beneath the tower in a cavern was dug out of the tuff rock, thus benefitting from a temperature that varies only two degrees between summer and winter.  A dream cellar for a wine connoisseur.
