The Castle is perched atop a hill and has been fully restored whilst upholding the spirit and atmosphere of a noble mansion. It can accommodate 12 people in luxurious comfort.
The castle’s history dates back to 1210, when the Counts Alberti of Certaldo built Caput Aulae at the center of the Val d’Elsa, later transforming it into an elegant country mansion. Castle Cabbi is the ideal Villa for a Tuscan Castle experience and especially if you are celebrating a wedding or an event.

The Counts – Alberti di Certaldo, the family owned and lived in this magnificent castle, which was transformed into a mansion until the 17th Century. The story goes that the Castle fell into the hands of the Brandini family: the Brandini family were owners of Banks and lands. In 1900, Alice Brandini married an entrepreneur Cesare Puccioni, who is the grandfather of the present owner. Cesare and Cecilia Puccioni have personally overseen the restoration of the Castle, maintaining all the charm and uniqueness of a historical home.
