    Toscana Resort Castelfalfi is delighted to announce the opening of its inaugural hotel, La Tabaccaia. Marking a significant step forward in the renovation of the 800 year-old estate in the heart of Tuscany, the boutique, 3-star property is the first of a trio of hotels planned for the development and will officially welcome guests from March 18th. In celebration of this launch, La Tabaccaia is also offering guests a tempting travel package to coincide with the prestigious Mille Miglia classic car race, which winds through Tuscany this May. The architecture and design of the hotel encompasses the ethos of the development as a whole as it is located in one of the village’s existing buildings, the historic features of which have been preserved and rejuvenated. Each of the 31 charming rooms is traditionally Tuscan in style, boasting restored beams and tiled ceilings dating back to the building’s time as a tobacco factory. The chic furnishings meanwhile, are a modern reflection of the building’s rich past and promise comfort as well as an attractive décor.

    The developers behind Castelfalfi are thrilled to see La Tabaccaia open its doors to the public on March 18th, as CEO Stefan Neuhaus emphasises: ‘our first guests signify life returning to this precious destination.’

    Hotel guests will already have on their doorstep a variety of leisure pursuits to enjoy. The two impressive nine and 18-hole courses at the Castelfalfi Golf Club are counted as some of the best facilities in the region, whilst sumptuous Tuscan dining is on offer at the estate’s first trattoria, Il Rosmarino. Further progress is being made on the expansive outdoor swimming area and adjoining sauna and gym, scheduled for completion in late summer 2013.

    Complementing the existing lifestyle offering at the picturesque estate, La Tabaccaia will be joined in 2014 by a luxury Spa and Wellness Hotel, the plans for which are well underway. The 41 apartments in the central borgo meanwhile, will be ready for residents to move into this summer alongside a Residents Delicatessen, offering a slice of the quintessential Italian lifestyle.
