Castellare di Tonda

Many centuries ago, there were two wealthy noble families, de Medici and Strozzi, who couldn’t stand each other. Both families had a deeply rooted love for the dancing Tuscan hills and subtle morning sunlight. They were proud of the lavish art and cities. One family had Florence. The other Siena. They used their wealth to build the most stunning buildings and both families left their mark. But who was actually in control? I found the answer at Castellare di Tonda while enjoying the Tuscan rural lifestyle at one of the mansions of the Strozzi family. While gazing at the pine trees, vineyards and greenery, I realised that in the heat of battle one would be longing for some silence and opportunity to reflect. ‘A perfect place to unwind’, owners Stefano and Alessandro had told me. Built with a lot of wealth, because 280 hectares of land provide all the space you need to let your thoughts wander and feast the eyes. There are twelve detached mansions, each with their own swimming pool, privacy and apartments with plenty of space, comfort and a Tuscan sense of style. And then there is the spa and wellness centre, a tennis and golf course, loads of places for many hours of gazing and hiking. ‘Peace and quiet’, Stefano said as he approached. I smiled and thought of the two families and their eternal rivalry. Stunning Florence was waiting for me nearby. "The Medici will have to wait", I smiled. Because for now, I was staying with the Strozzis. Travelling back in time at one of their gorgeous creations.
