High on a Tuscan hill striped with rolling vineyards sits a spectacular 15th century villa. With frescoes designed by the one and only Michelangelo there is no doubt that spending time at this majestic mansion will be an unforgettable experience. The villa’s terracotta walls glow in the Italian sunshine and it is the ideal setting for an exclusive private celebration, romantic wedding or luxury incentive week away.
The private retreat is set in 600 acres of shady olive groves, gardens and neat vineyards which produce the estate’s award-winning wines. The villa’s position offers spectacular views of the Italian countryside and it is an exceptional venue for intimate parties or an exclusive gathering of up to 200 people. This property sings with luxury; it is lavish and private, opulent yet understated. It also has some celebrity flare and can accommodate up to 7 helicopters.
Inside the rooms overflow with history and period charm, from the original 16th century frescoes, to the antique furnishings and huge fire places. The guestrooms are all unique and sympathetically restored offering a traditional Italian style with marble bathrooms, as well as modern comforts such as king size beds, Wi-Fi and TVs. Rooms have terraces with views towards nearby Florence. To accommodate more people for larger events there is another property within the estate, which is just a short walk across the gardens from the main villa.
A team of professional chefs produce dish after dish of fresh local food – you’ll be served top class meals including vegetables straight from the vegetable garden, cooked in home-grown delicious olive oil, and washed down with superb wine from the vineyards. Guests can enjoy some pampering time in the holistic spa, enjoy a balloon ride, take a dip in the indoor pool or lounge by the outdoor pool surrounded by mature trees and song birds.
This is a truly romantic and idyllic venue for an exclusive use wedding. The picturesque grounds make a stunning backdrop for wedding photographs as couples stroll in the gardens, pose in the statue garden or walk through the dappled olive groves.
In the evenings music fills the villa’s two piazzas and the warm Italian evenings unravel with cocktails, champagne, fireworks, dancing and laughter. This Tuscan Villa is special from the moment you set foot inside the door; you will feel the past and the guests who have entertained here, now it’s your turn to enjoy the present.
