The enchanting village of Castelfalfi is steeped in centuries-old history, beginning with Lombard Faolfi who laid the castle’s foundations in the 700s. In the early 2000s, restoration and renovation of the hamlet and its surrounding 1000 hectares of land was undertaken and today, golf enthusiasts flock to the 27-hole Castelfalfi Golf Club, which offers a superb sporting challenge in a beautiful Tuscan setting.
Villa del Cacciatore was the former hunting mansion of the Dukes of Castelfalfi. Built in 1890, this villa was known in the area as the leading spot of the Tuscan aristocrat society. An authentic jewel of Tuscan architecture and historical tradition, the property was thoroughly renovated in 2018 resulting in a fabulous luxury villa rental in a tranquil location with panoramic views.
The interior of the villa features quintessential Tuscan details such as terracotta floors, stone walls, and chestnut wood beam ceilings, while also providing all modern amenities, including air-conditioning in all five bedrooms, WiFi connectivity, and a fully equipped kitchen. Outside, the beautifully maintained garden offers privacy and tranquility. Situated in the enclosed gardens and just a short walk from the villa is a beautiful swimming pool, perfect for keeping cool on hot summer days.

Trust & Security
Action Fraud reported in 2018 that consumers lost over £7 million in online villa scams. We operate from a 'bricks and mortar' Office, are fully accountable, have full liability insurance and know all of our villas and their respective owners. Quite simply, we deliver on our promises.
Our sole aim is to understand the needs of each client and match them to exactly the right villa. We have no vested interest in any individual property.
All of our villas are listed by invitation only. No owner can pay for their property to be listed on the Red Savannah site.
The above benefits are not offered lightly. Red Savannah clients receive all the advantages and protections listed above, without paying a penny more. And remember, apart from the inability to match-make the right client to the right property, ‘Rental by Owner’ sites and other online sites will not only take on more or less any property willing to pay, but could expose the user to fraud. And if things go wrong, try getting hold of anyone to take responsibility! This is your holiday - Why risk it?
*Best Price Guarantee applies only at the time of enquiry and before the booking has been confirmed and paid. If you find a cheaper price for exactly the same property on a like for like basis and over identical dates, and where in the sole opinion of Red Savannah, no substantive pricing error has been made or private discount offered, Red Savannah will match the price. This guarantee is valid only when prices are advertised and compared in the same currency. Please note that no further amendments to prices can be made following payment of deposit.
The idea for Red Savannah was always based on a clear market need. A small team of the most experienced travel designers, supported by the latest technology and delivered with the lightest touch. In short, a travel company redefined for the 21st century.
