Rimpalla Cave is a stunning house immersed in picturesque rolling countryside. Thirty hectares of the surrounding land is privately owned by the estate and includes woodland and hunting grounds.  The panoramic views of the Tuscan landscape beautifully envelop the seventeenth-century villa which will be your home for your Italian escape.

Where better to spend your holiday than a traditional Tuscan country house which has been stunningly decorated in recent years. This spacious home and separate cottage can house up to ten guests. The house even comes with its own resident member of staff who will prepare a sumptuous locally sourced breakfast for you in the mornings so you can truly relax. A local management team is also on hand to help with booking an array of activities including massage and horse-riding.

One of the best features of this villa is the fantastic pool and gardens which surround it. The large, stylish pool features a diving deck and a great seating area. There is also a poolside music system with Wi-Fi and a barbecue available. When you wish to come indoors to unwind at the end of a busy day, the stunning living area with an extensive library and cosy fireplace is the ideal spot for a glass of wine and a good book. Meanwhile, the children can enjoy the PlayStation or table tennis.

The house may sit in a serene, country location but there is plenty for you to do nearby when you want to explore Tuscany further. When looking to eat out, you can head to the nearby village where there are a few lovely traditional eateries or head a little further to historic Castelfalfi for more choice. If you need to visit a supermarket there are a number available under half an hour away.

The villa is perfectly situated for a visit to the famous Castelfalfi golf course which is just five minutes away by car. There are two courses on offer, set in natural surroundings and all abilities are catered for. There is also a spa available at Castelfalfi offering pools, sauna, jacuzzi and a wealth of treatments. You could finish your day with a look around the shops and visit one of the high-quality restaurants serving authentic local food. 

Located just an hour away from Pisa and Volterra (great places to visit for day trips),  this villa boasts a fantastic secluded location perfect for a holiday retreat.

Surrounded by rolling countryside and woodland, Rimpalla Cave is the ideal base for a relaxing Tuscan break. You can happily while away your days relaxing by the pool and exploring the private lands around the house and nipping out to nearby villages for a traditional meal. If you wish to see what else Tuscany has to offer though, there is so much to do near to the villa and within an hour’s drive.

Near to the villa, you will find the local village, just over five minutes by car, where there’s a small café-bar and place to pick up some simple food, whilst the medieval hillside village of Castelfalfi is home to a fantastic golf resort, spa and a good choice of places to eat and drink. A local management team is also able to arrange activities and day trips for you which are all within around a 40-minute drive from the house. Trips to a chocolate factory, oil and wine tastings and even exclusive music concerts are all available as well as a wealth of sporting activities.

On days when you want to hit the shops and spend the day strolling through streets filled with a lively buzz then you are perfectly placed to drive to so many amazing locations. Two of the best-loved are Volterra and Pisa which can be reached within the hour. You will find yourself transported from the rolling Tuscan hills to stunning winding streets filled with bars, restaurants and beautiful piazzas.

Volterra is a Tuscan town which is packed with both Roman and medieval history. There are some great combined tickets you can purchase to make a day of it in Volterra which enable you to visit museums, art galleries and palaces which are all near to each other. This way you can see all of the best local art and culture before visiting a traditional restaurant to unwind. Volterra is also famous for its alabaster stone carving and some beautiful items can be picked up in the region in artisan shops.

Pisa is also easy to reach within an hour and of course, you can’t visit Pisa without visiting the leaning tower! There is also much more to Pisa and a great place to start is booking a walking tour for early in the day before the crowds emerge. To see a more authentic side of Pisa, head down to the banks of the river Arno where there are lovely shopping areas and stunning buildings to behold. The river is also the perfect place to sit with some gelato to watch the world go by.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Babies & Toddlers Ideal for Kids

The Tuscan hills are an ideal playground for children of all ages who will love nothing more than the chance to be free and immerse themselves in nature. Children will love to spend the days at the villa in the pool and playing in the gardens and there are plenty of things to do nearby when they want to explore.

The local management team should be your first port of call when looking for kid’s activities in the area as they will be able to arrange a lot for you. If your children are adventurous then there is horse riding, mountain biking, climbing and canoeing available in the local area. For the less sporty types, they may prefer a painting class or a gelato tasting experience!

For days out, kids can’t resist the leaning tower of Pisa and there are also great parks and museums to explore in Pisa. Otherwise, you could visit Volterra which is packed with Roman ruins which children love to see, there are city walls, a Roman theatre and fortresses to visit all near to each other. If any of your kids are Twilight fans then they will also be interested to know that Volterra is the home of the ancient vampires the Volturi and there are even Twilight tours held there!
