When it comes to romance, there is nothing quite like a holiday in Italy. Of all the areas of Italy that people love to visit, Florence, Pisa and Lucca are rated amongst the best of the best for Tuscany holidays.
For those wishing to celebrate a special anniversary, or birthday, or simply treat the one they love, a holiday in Castelalfi, located within an hour’s drive of the beautiful Italian cities of Siena, Lucca, Pisa, and Florence, is the perfect answer for a romantic getaway. Castelalfi was once an almost abandoned medieval village that has been carefully restored to its former glory. Renovated and restored for those who love to combine golf travel with the finest food and wines, walks in the countryside, beautiful surroundings and luxury accommodation, Castelalfi offers an opportunity to spend time relaxing, enjoying each other’s company, in tranquility.
A visit to Tuscany is not complete without a day out in one of its beautiful cities. Florence offers the stunning Duomo, a feast for the eyes, and the Uffizi, a must visit for any art lover, whilst Siena is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and rightly so, with the Palio horse race held annually in the Piazza del Campo, also the ideal place to relax and take in the world around you.
Taking a day out to see the sights, means even more enjoyment on returning to Castelalfi, whether it’s for a traditional Tuscan lunch at the trattoria, horseriding on the estate, or truffle picking in the nature reserve. As well as the two golf courses, set in stunning landscapes, guests can enjoy the estate’s four swimming pools, exclusive access to the wellness area, which has saunas and gym facilities, or shopping in the traditional shops where local food, wines, and olive oils are available for purchase.
Castelalfi’s accommodation comprises 31 individually designed rooms and suites, making it an ideal location to get away from it all. Relaxing after a day on the two award winning golf courses, designed with the golf lover in mind by European Institute of Golf Course Architects, Rainer Preissmann and Wilfried Moroders, is simple, thanks to the LCD TV with satellite channels, and rainfall shower head in the bathroom. With apartments and villas available for sale, holidays combining golf, fantastic sights, and treating the one you love every year, no matter what the anniversary, is a given at Castelalfi.
