About Allan Glube
My wife and I are Canadians living in Toronto. We have traveled very extensively and have spent a lot of time in Florence / Tuscany as well as in the south of France. 8 years ago we bought a 2 bedroom house in Vaison la Romaine [ see Home Away 370928 ] which has proven very successful as a vacation rental.
Allan Glube purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Allan Glube chose Castelfalfi
When we saw an advertisement in the Financial Times of London for this property in Tuscany,we could not resist taking a look. We saw the amazing potential with the development and committed ourselves to a second vacation rental property. The development is surpassing our wildest dreams.
What makes this Apartment unique
The view from our 3rd floor apartment [ 2nd floor in Europe ] overlooks the Tuscan hills and a 27 hole golf course below. The apartment is fully air conditioned and radiant under floor heating. There is an elevator that takes you to the third floor. Their are 9 stores just below including a delicatessen which is open 7days a week . There is a restaurant a 4 minute walk away which serves excellent inexpensive pastas & pizzas and daily specials. The golf course and 4 swimming pools are exceptional. Next year there will be a restaurant in the nearby Castello with a Michelin Star chef. The Castello will include a cooking school and art classes. This property is second to none.

Beautiful Tuscan apartment
Everything was perfect- the apartment and surrounding area was beautiful. Allan was so helpful regarding any questions we had. I wish we had more time there.
This truly is a five star home away from home.
Everything about this unit was top of the line. The photos do not do the place justice. My wife now wants to renovate our bathroom at home to match the one in this Tuscan apartment. The three restaurants in the village were all excellent. The golf course is more than challenging and in excellent condition. Several hill towns were within an hour's drive with San Gimignano being only 20 minutes and Volterra about 40 minutes. This setting fit with our style of traveling by providing a home base from which we could explore but come back to this sanctuary each afternoon or evening. The owner acted as our tour guide from the moment we made the booking and was far and away the most responsive one we have dealt with at VRBO over more than ten years of using this site. After two weeks stay it was definitely hard to leave and we look forward to another trip to this beautiful part of Italy. Still missing the view out the balcony window and our afternoon glass of Chianti with cheese and meat board in the park looking off to the Tuscan hills.
Wonderful retreat in the heart of Tuscany
We had a great time staying at is apartment for 6 nights. Everything is as pictured. The apartment is nicely furnished and decorated. The view out the balcony goes on forever across the Tuscan countryside. The bathroom is large. The apartment was very comfortable for my wife and I.
The owners are very responsive and made sure we were totally satisfied. All the basics were provided, including paper towels, laundry detergent and dishwasher capsules. The Nespresso coffee machine was a nice touch. All appliances are nice Miele models. We didn't cook, but there is a cooktop and oven. The refrigerator is very spacious, and not your typical undercounted apartment model.
Castelfalfi itself is a nice borgo that has been turned into a resort. You can just get away from everything there, or places like Volterra, San Gimignano, Florence, Siena and Pisa are all within an hours drive or less. We visited all these places and also enjoyed hiking around the resort in Castelfalfi proper. Driving from Castelfalfi to various destinations was a joy, with all the wonderful Tuscan views as we went from one place to another.
We will likely return to this property if we come back to Tuscany. We would also rent the owner's other property in Provence when we visit southern France.
You do need a car to come here. We rented one in Florence and drove down for our stay.
Excellent place to explore Tuscany
My wife and I stayed at Castelfalfi for a week in July. We picked the place due the golfcourses offered and the easy reach of a number of attractions. Situated in the middle of Tuscay we could visit cities like Florence, Siena and Lucca conveniently. The pictures of the apartment is absolutely true. It is indeed a very nice and intelligent apartment with all the services which you need. The standard was impeccable and totally clean.
We can only recommend the apartment and will most likely visit Castelfalfi again.
What a peaceful way to exerience Tuscany
This apartment is an ideal location for vacationing tourists, situated roughly equidistant from Pisa, Florence and Siena. The surroundings are full of character, the scenery is glorious and the apartment itself is elegant and comfortable, with all mod cons included. If you are a couple looking to enjoy the delights of Tuscany this is a great place to stay.
This apartment is located in a very quiet Borgo in the heart of Tuscany; although we did not golf the course looks amazing! The apartment is very modern in a secure entry building and is well equipped for short or longer stays; the owner was a pleasure to deal with and always responded to any communication quickly; a short drive away you can park your car and take a train into Florence for the day; San Gimignano is also very close. The hotel was also more than happy to help with directions, suggestions etc. You will not be disappointed however a car is a must.
In the most perfect location for all the sightseeing highlights in Tuscany. All an hour or less include Florence , Siena, Lucca, Pisa, San Gimignano , Volterra , Forte dei Marmi, Cinqueterre and much more. The famous ' The Mall ' shopping outlet is about 1 hr away. Barberino shopping Outlet is about 1 hr away. Golfing and swimming in the resort. Many great restaurants surround the area.
