Toscana Resort Castelfalfi

Office: Horwath HTL Germany

Overview: A particular challenge for us in the heart of Tuscany. The Castelfalfi is a treasure nestled in the heart of Tuscany, including a castle and an 800-year-old village with tremendous scope and potential for tourism development in an extraordinary setting. The site, which is owned by the giant TUI AG, finalised the Piano Urbanistico Attuativo (PUA)planning consent at the end of 2009. In the summer of 2010, the first 18 hole golf course in the Mountain-Course was handed over and opened. Phase two, completed at the end of 2013 in the historical Borgo Vecchio with the impressive Castello and the unique Casali, included shops, restaurants and bars, high-class villas and apartments. The final piece of the development due to open in 2017 will include a hotel, wellness and other real estate products carefully integrated into the Tuscan landscape. The 1,100-hectare area will be equipped with latest infrastructure facilities, setting new standards in Italy in terms of ecology and sustainability.
