The Delight of Hospitality

Fascinating Location for your Events

Charm with art-deco

Step inside and discover laidback indulgence in an ancient castle, surrounded by rolling hills and century-old vineyards

Valentina Benci Piccioni welcomes you to the enchanting Castello di Cafaggio, where the treasures of her blended families can be found. Her father Piero Piccioni, pianist and composer of over 300 soundtracks for the renowned Italian cinema from the 1950’s and her stepfather Enrico Benci with whom she grew up, were in fact linked by a deep friendship and mutual esteem.

The castle library contains Benci family antique books and papers that one can admire, including a dedicated photo and a letter from family friend and frequent castles guest Giacomo Puccini to great grandfather Ugo Benci. Over the last few years, all of Piero Piccioni’s handwritten musical production has been added and is available to scholars and musicians. Valentina, musicologist and singer has ensured the digitization of these works and begun organizing conferences and concerts with important scholars and musicians dedicated to her father in the magical setting of Castle Cafaggio.

Our mantra is “Escape the ordinary” because we believe that everybody should be encouraged to do just that: indulge in a slow pace lifestyle, surround themselves with stunning views of our rolling hills, relax in individually designed bedrooms, sunbathe under the Tuscan sun, sip our red wine in one of our terraces, tasting our award winning organic extra-virgin olive oil with our organically grown tomatoes, dining al fresco under our wisteria, dancing all night in our “limonaia” or simply catching up on some much-needed quality sleep. Castello di Cafaggio combines the experience of a local Tuscan countryside lifestyle with an event venue that offers the highest standards. Add to that you can hire the castle exclusively for a wedding, corporate event or big day celebration and you can truly tailor the event to your exact needs.
Castello di Cafaggio is located in the heart of Tuscany, minutes from the delightful town of Impruneta rich in regional artisan traditions and close to the historical furnaces of terracotta renowned worldwide.
Nestled in the realm of olive oil and wine of the highest quality, Castello di Cafaggio is surrounded by splendid olive groves and vineyards and has won multiple awards for its organic extra virgin olive oil.

Castello di Cafaggio is an ideal location for taking in the authentic atmosphere of the Tuscan countryside and enjoying cultural visits to the treasures of Italian art. For the traveler who wishes experience a taste of city life, Florence is only 12 km away and Siena can be reached in less than an hour, with a multitude of medieval villages along the route.
Captivated by this setting we look forward to welcoming you and to providing genuine hospitality which embraces nature, culture, tradition and entertainment. From home made breakfast and tuscan dinners in the magnificient art-deco dining room, to forest bathing in the ancient woodlands once frequented by Giacomo Puccini, one of the greatest opera composer of all times, to cooking classes, tastings of the organic produce from the farm, soothing yoga sessions, we wish to spoil our guests and make their experience truly pleasurable.
Whoever stays at the Castello di Cafaggio is not simply a guest but also contributes to the richness and beauty of the land and to the spirit of this remarkable location.

We stayed at the Castello for a week last October for our wedding, and our stay couldn't have been more wonderful. It was a small, family event, and the owners and staff were so helpful and accommodating. The owner gave us a tour of the property and brought in a local chef for a cooking class (which was fun and delicious!). The team helped us set up for the small ceremony and dinner afterward, which they catered. The food was wonderful and they made the entire event completely stress free. Throughout the week they struck the perfect balance of being available to help while also giving us space for our time together.The property is absolutely beautiful. The rooms were comfortable and the architecture and views were stunning. I cannot say enough about the team, they were so kind and considerate throughout our entire stay. We truly could not have asked for anything more - thank you Valentina, Monica, and Primal for the unforgettable experience!

We attended a wedding here and it is a beautiful building in the Tuscan countryside. There is a pool and we ate in a lovely courtyard. Nothing was too much trouble and it was a wonderful experience.
