This pretty country estate dates back to the 12th century when it belonged to the powerful Medici family. Steeped in history, it was the site of a castle built in 1134, which once belonged to the state of Florence and was used to protect the Ambra valley. The original castle was destroyed in 1554 by a joint Sienese, French army. The castle, which replaced it in the 18th century, was later converted into the fabulous Villa that stands here today. It is surrounded by rolling, Tuscan countryside dotted with hilltop villages and country farms creating magical picture postcard views, reminiscent of renaissance paintings.

Villa Falco is situated in the Ambra valley within easy reach of Siena (19km), Florence (68km) and Arezzo (38km).
The estate also has a winery producing top quality wines and there is a restaurant nearby. Winemaking in the family goes back a long way, In fact, as far back as 1245, when Friar Giovanni Carpini was sent to China by the Pope with the gift of a rare Tuscan vine rootstock.


Villa Falco is in the “Leopoldine” style. Only 50 of them exist in the whole of Tuscany. They were commissioned by the Grand Duke of Tuscany – Leopold II. This and a sister farmhouse are located just along the road from the main estate and have fabulous open views over the surrounding countryside.
