Villa Castell is a historic villa that has been tastefully restored and conserves many originally features whilst providing lovely holiday accommodation. The villa is set on the edge of a quaint, little hamlet with a tiny 1,000 year old church. Villa Castell has very large grounds, which are set out as an olive grove. The location of this property is ideal as it is only a short drive into the local town of Tavarnelle Val di Pesa and within very easy reach of both San Gimignano (20 mins) and Florence (20 – 25 mins).
