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.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Half way between Florence and Siena, the estate extends for over 200 hectares in the hills of the Chianti region. Vignamaggio overlooks a countryside landscape, of forests, vineyards and ancient hamlets scattered about on the surrounding hills. At the core of the farm is the Renaissance villa, surrounded by Italian style gardens, which fill the spaces between rows of cypresses, vines and olive trees. A working farm since 1404, Vignamaggio has been cultivating the vines and producing wine for over 600 years. Open to the public since 1987, the historical dwelling offers first class accommodation with rooms, suites and apartments in the estate's farmhouses. ... more less
