Property Description

Castello del Trebbio, built by the pazzi family in 1184, is today, a farm owned since 1968 by the baj macario family. The family run estate offers high quality products such as wine, extra virgin olive oil and pure saffron as well as several activities such as accommodations in farm houses, wine and oil tours in the 900 year old castle cellars, and weddings for foreign and italian couples.

Thanks to our restaurant 'la sosta del gusto', opened in 2006, and the recent winner of the 'great wine capitals' award as best wine restaurant in the world, we can now offer a complete package of services to the couple who decide to get married here. This package includes: accommodation, wedding ceremony in the castle and dinner in the restaurant. we excitedly await to provide you with an unforgettable experience on the hills of florence with history, culture, nature, good food and a glass of our chianti rufina that will let you dream.

Castello del trebbio: winner of the 'great wine capitals' award in the categories of: wine cellar experience (2006), architecture (2007), wine restaurants (2010) and innovative experiences (2013).

Olive groves and grape vines surround the villa Panicale, situated on the Castello del Trebbio estate. The villa is divided into three separate apartments complete with their own patio, private garden and swimming pool. They provide a great way to experience the relaxed Tuscan countryside while being close enough to Florence to pop in and explore the city. Castello del Trebbio was built as a fortress in the twelfth century for the Pazzi family. In the fifteenth century, ownership transferred to the Medici family who converted it into a villa. The current family purchased it in 1968 and have restored it to its respective history.

The estate is comprised of about 60 hectares of grapes, 10,000 olive trees and native forest for a total of 350 hectares. A tour of the castle and the old wine cellars with wine and olive oil tasting is provided for groups upon reservation.

To reach Panicale there is a short drive or walk down a fruit tree lined road. The villa is perched high on the side of a hill overlooking one of the vineyards and olive groves. The small lake located on the estate can be seen as well as the extensive forest that wraps around the edges of the plantings. We offer our guests a variety of activities ranging from cooking classes to italian courses, and painting classes to mountain biking. Horseback riding either around the practice ring or through the beautiful native forest is another activity we can arrange. Guests are welcome to wander through the estate, and feast on any of the delicacies they find such as mushrooms, figs, apples, nuts or peaches. A fairly regular bus service stops at the castle gate linking this country villa with Pontassieve, Florence and some of the most quaint small towns nearby.
Recently renovated is the new private Villa Faltignano, with private pool, that can host up to 14 people.

Even though our accommodations are basically self-catering, we have an award winning Tuscan restaurant on the estate, where you can enjoy mouth watering food paired with our estate wines.


Panicale A (Sleeps 7+1):
A wrought iron and glass door, reminiscent of the castle gate, opens to an entrance room with a cloak room to one side. Around the corner is a large modern kitchen and cozy original brick fireplace to make cooking a pleasure. The dining area straddles the space between the kitchen and the lounge room, taking advantage of the warmth of the fire and the views from the lounge windows. The books lining the lounge shelves are perfect for winter evenings curled up in front of the fire or for long summer days lazing on the patio.

The extra room can be used as a fitness room, a playing room for the children or an extra bedroom. There are many tracks leading from the house to the pond or the local village through olive groves and grape vines. These tracks make for great running or walking routes.

The three bedrooms are on separate levels upstairs so maximum privacy is achieved. The bedrooms are simply decorated in a country theme, with a focus on comfort.

The owners once lived in this part of the villa so the bathrooms and kitchen contain all modern appliances. Central heating and a fireplace in the dining area makes this villa a perfect winter retreat.

Windows along three sides of the villa offer spectacular views overlooking the grape vines. The windows on the third side look out on to the private patio with its grand walnut tree.

Panicale B (Sleeps 4+1):
The middle apartment in the Villa Panicale was restored in 2002. Central heating and modern bathroom fittings and kitchen appliances make your stay a pleasure in summer or winter.

Both double bedrooms have their own bathroom and are on different levels to ensure privacy. The lounge room opens to the private garden and the pool. In the cool summer evenings as the golden sunset streaks over the vineyard, the patio makes the perfect place to sip Castello del Trebbio's Chianti wine, while pondering the next day’s adventure.

Panicale C (Sleeps 4+1):
The owners have shown their flair for design in this apartment. Renovated at the end of the 90's, it reflects modern Italian styling with clean lines and crisp, vivid colours. A fresh, fig green coloured kitchen glistens with stainless steel appliances. Outside a nice patio with table and chairs invites a lingering lunch.

This apartment has two bedrooms. The double bedroom on the lower level is light and airy. The single room is on a level three steps up on one side making up part of the lounge area.

Il Rifusio (Sleeps 4+1):
This house sits amongst the country wilderness, providing many opportunities for exploration and an opportunity to experience the simple life. Below it is the farm storage shed. Nearby, an old villa lies in ruins waiting to be restored. Wild fruit trees, with their knarled trunks surround the villa. In winter a mist settles like a halo on the roof. Inside a treasure awaits. The large, open plan lounge and dining room area has been painted a soft white, contrasting against the dark “Milanese” antique furniture. There is a welcoming and cozy fire place. The double room is spacious and elegant while the bunk room is in sturdy pine, perfect for children.

From 2014 this apartment will be rented out together with villa Pergola as its dependence.

Arco Antico (Sleeps 4):
This cozy west facing apartment has been constructed with many levels to maximize the views over the olive groves. The sunbathed garden is a perfect place to eat breakfast.

Since 2006, our new restaurant is located under this apartment. For this reason we rent Arco Antico with big discount.


Villa Faltignano:
The Villa Faltignano is situated on a hill overlooking the medieval Castello del Trebbio. In a style that is both rustic and luxurious, it offers a high standard of comfort and relaxation for up to 14 people.

From its private parking area, our guests will enter through the garden into the main entrance. On the ground floor they will find a modern, furnished kitchen, dining room and living room with satellite TV. The patio, which is beautiful for outdoor meals, can be accessed directly from the kitchen. There are also two rooms that share a bathroom located on the ground floor. Upstairs, our guests will have five beautiful bedrooms. Each room has either a double or twin bed with a private adjoining bathroom.

Our landlord, Miss Anna, has combined both traditional and modern design in furnishing the Villa Faltignano. Each bedroom carries the name of a local flower and is coordinated in colour with its private bathroom.

The Villa Faltignano has been constructed in such a way that each guest can enjoy his privacy; yet enjoy spending time with friends and family in the common areas. Therefore, the Villa Faltignano is rented out to friends and families as well as groups who like to spend joyful and relaxing days together.

The luxurious Villa Faltignano is part of our large selection of apartments. From our rustic apartments ("Arco Antico" and "il Rifugio") to our new apartments ("Casa Panicale", which comes with a garden and swimming pool), our guests can choose between three styles and three different price categories.

Our passion for family, history, cultural traditions and agriculture lies at the heart of Castello del Trebbio. Our restoration of old farmhouses, where our guests are welcome to enjoy their stay, exemplifies that passion. Our dedication to this family run business has also led to quality products such as extra virgin olive oil, quality wines and saffron. We
enjoy showing our guests the vineyards and cellars that have been here for centuries and sharing about the products of our region and our family history.

Our goal is that our guests will see the unity of our family run business. A unity where the grapes cannot be separated from the apartments, the castle from the vineyards, the olive trees from the medieval history, nor the strong and ancient traditions from today's modern and dynamic passion of living.

Villa Pergola:
The House Pergola, old farm house from the 18th century, was recently renovated into an amazing Villa that can host, together with the next door Dependence, up to 14 people (also including the sofa bed); it took over a year to create a unique atmosphere where to relax; pool with view on the 900 year old castle, surrounded by vines and olive trees. Four double rooms, one living room with sofa bed, satellite television, wireless internet, five bathrooms, kitchen, dining room; the dependence Il Rifugio has two more bedrooms, one bathroom, living room, kitchen. For the cooking lovers, we also created a corner with barbecue and pizza oven.
