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.

  • Villa Bougainvillea

    In a beautiful corner of Tuscany, and exactly in proximity of the antique parish of Vorno, nearby the medieval town of Lucca, Villa Bougainvillea was built around the middle of 17th century.

    Reserved and protected by a stone enclosure wall, the Villa is the true expression of Lucca’s sober architecture following the respect of the rules in placing the noble floor raised from the country floor, in the entrance portal with the double flight stairway, in the symmetrical distribution of the rooms around the central salon, in memory of a lifestyle based on an easy elegance of those days.

    As the gates open you are immediately transported to what seems like another time as the elegant cypress trees welcome you. The wide park with lime-trees, oaks, olives, magnolias , large bushes of aromatic plants and roses is the ideal background for the Romanic style swimming-pool nowadays winded by a romantic pergola of Bougainvillea.
