A private cooking class at Villa Mangiacane with Chef Francesco Lagi is an unforgettable Tuscan experience! In the ancient cucina, with its wood-burning oven and stone walls, we learn a little history of Tuscan cuisine, the importance of quality, local, ingredients, and just enjoy the incredible food and friendship. Chef Lagi is a master of Tuscan cuisine. He has a... More

My wife and I have stayed in Villa Mangicanie five times over the last nine years. She always talks about it at home. The difference this July is massive maybe due to the emphasis on group bookings. Firstly, the staff can vary between helpful and can't or won't be bothered. We were there for five nights and had to put... More

Stunning location and building. Wine tasting was very informed and interesting. Food thought questionable, our son was sick soon after and as for value, I would rate very poor. Main courses at €20 a dish for the quality that was provided is excessive. Lots of potential in this stunning environment, the food needs to reflect this too.

Florence is such a beautiful place with gorgeous place - amazing scenery, food and wine. We have visited many places in Tuscany and so were very excited to visit friends staying at the Villa Mangiacane today. The villa is lovely with a mix of Tuscan architecture and African sculptures throughout the gardens. After walking round the gardens and swimming in... More

I had a great time with my family at villa Machiavelli! There are 10 bedrooms, one private pool and one pool for the whole resort, a spa, and many other amenities. What surprised me about the villa was they had books in the room! They have modern books, so I would recommend going into the rooms and hunting for a... More

Beautiful location in the Tuscany hills! The two villas are surrounded by a vineyard with wine tasting and tours offered! The wine is delicious :) Friendly staff are available to advise and offer assistance.. Would be an amazing wedding venue! It's the perfect getaway!

We are just coming back from a birthday bash that took place in and around Mangiacane. The rooms are nice and very distinct, some in the main palazzo, some in the adjacent building. The people were nice, the food was great and the view terrific (from one suite you can see the Duomo).

We visited here for our honeymoon for 2 nights, and were not disappointed. On arrival, the scenery was dramatic and views from the main building spanned florence and the classic rolling Tuscan hills. The staff were attentive without being in your face. The Terrace Suite was lovely, on two floors with a separate bathroom and large bed. The food was... More

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
