It is a spectacular location, the hotel is luxuriously renovated, but some details are just meeting the standards. Many of the rooms have almost no window, the restaurant for breakfast has nothing special to offer, and there are few places to eat outside in the shade making people eat inside when the weather is gorgeous. The reception staff is very... More

I spent 4 days at the magnificent Mangiacane with my family. The hotel is marvellous and in a perfect and idyllic spot, the staff were very kind and attentive, the chefs cooked marvellous food for us and our room was a dream. Mangiacane is a Tuscan paradise. The award winning wines, especially the Chianti Classico 2009, was all we hoped... More

A very lovely location, beautiful and peaceful, BUT, we had hoped to experience drinks on the Loggia looking at the sunset and wandering around the gardens, neither of these possible as the main villa was booked exclusively so all area's were out of bounds, Although it also advertises a beautiful spa, the website does not let you know that it...

This villa was supposed to be the highlight of our 3 week trip to Italy but it proved to be disappointing from our arrival. After having to wait 20 minutes to check in as lots of Wedding party guests were checking out and no staff welcoming us, we were told that we received an 'upgrade' (which I am sure is... More

I spent 4 days at this magnificent villa during a visit to Tuscany and Florence last year. I wanted to stay here in the Tuscan countryside before plunging into the city, and that turned out to be a good plan. The historical and architectural significance of the property is impressive. Further, the estate itself is surrounded by it's own vineyards... More

We spent 7 days here as a center for touring Tuscany. It is a beautiful villa and a good place to spend downtime on a busy Chianti schedule. We stayed in one of the upstairs two-level suites in the main house and the views from our room were stunning. The service was also quite good. Highly recommend this place even... More

Once again we came back to Mangiacane for a wedding of our friends. As usual we were met with excellent service, offered tasty Mangiacane wines and nice Italian food. Good service, breath taken views and antique interiors - only best for intelligent travelers.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A unique villahotel, where every room is different, from cardinal-red opulence of Medici or Borgia times via african art, sculpture and paintings to ladies rooms with pastell yellow, green and rosè. Guest will enjoy the view from the grand loggia or the first floor loggia over our vineyards and olive groves to the cupola of Florence cathedral. Two pools, an indoor restaurant and the herbal garden al fresco dining invite to stop and enjoy florentine and italian as well as international cuisie. The fluidum of long bygone days will be reawakened when you look at the frescoes and remind yourself, that Nicolo Machiavelli lived and worked here over 500 years ago , and it is purported that Michelangelo did some work during the 7 year's stay of Machiavelli stay here. Add to all that the winery, tasting wines at leisure in our barrique cellar or try our olive oil during our cooking classes -you have let yourself in for an unique stay with us. ... more   less
