Castello del Trebbio was built as a fortress in the 12th century for the Pazzi family. In the 15th century, ownership transferred to the Medici family, who converted it into a villa. The current family purchased it in 1968 and has restored it, respecting its history. The estate comprises about 60 hectares of grapes, 10.000 olive trees and native forest, a total of 350 hectares. Guests are welcome to wander through the estate, and feast on any of the delicacies they find, such as mushrooms, figs, apples, nuts or peaches.
For a lunch or dinner you can make reservations at the great restaurant "La Sosta del Gusto". Chef Claudio definetely knows how to make a bistecca fiorentina! Besides this you find lovely pasta dishes and other meat dishes on the menu. The desserts are highly recommended. Chef Claudio is very creative and is keen on using only fresh products from the zone. He was asked several times to cook for the Slow Food association.
The passion for family, history, cultural traditions and agriculture are the heart of Castello del Trebbio. The restoration of old farmhouses, where guests are welcome to enjoy their stay, exemplifies that passion.
Without doubt, the owners will show their guests the unity and uniqueness of a family run business.
