Villa Machiavelli is a one-of-a-kind experience nestled in the legendary wine making "Chianti Classico" region, just outside of Florence. The 15th-century main villa and its original frescoes have been restored to their former magnificence, combined with opulent, extravagant new interior décor. Once the home of the Machiavelli family and centuries later, the Mazzei family, this villa boasts a rare heritage. For large parties or special events, particularly destination weddings, the property offers the equally spectacular "Mazzei Villa," adjacent to Machiavelli's entrance gates. The Mazzei Villa offers 19 additional suites.
Spaces of understated elegance have been created which are filled with original artwork, antiques and furniture from around the world emulating the warmth and hospitality of a luxurious home from home. Here you will find two beautiful Villas individually designed with a total of 28 sophisticated rooms and suites each with sunken bath tubs or over sized showers and stunning views of the Tuscan countryside. Surrounded by 600 acres of flourishing vineyards, the Estate produces four award winning wines and with over 6,000 olive trees they produce a distinctive extra virgin olive oil which can be enjoyed during your stay.
The classic beauty of Mangiacane combined with its history, art, and idyllic countryside setting create the perfect backdrop for a Tuscan wedding, unforgettable holiday or exclusive rental. Luxurious facilities complement the private villa, including two swimming pools, unique sculpture gardens and breathtaking Tuscan views of the Duomo in Florence: a stay at Mangiacane allows for easy exploration to Florence, San Gimignano, or the magnificent city of Siena.
