A gorgeous 15th century Villa tucked away in the Tuscan hills, less than 20 miles from Florence. We have been coming to this lovely place for 20 years since we first saw it as the location for Kenneth Branagh's film of Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing". If you come, make sure to stay in one of the few rooms in the original Villa. While not fully five star luxury, there is an air of tranquility and beauty unmatched in most of the top rated hotels. This Villa was the home of the Mona Lisa when she was famously painted by Leonardo da Vinci. The gardens are spectacular and the setting with views over the countryside are gorgeous. The food and service is exceptional.
Vignamaggio continues to be a working vineyard, producing some of the best Chianti of the region.
