Villa Mangiacane


Live your dreams on the gentle hills of Chianti

A true example of rustic elegance in the heart of the most beautiful Tuscan countryside, this incredible historic residence was first established 600 years ago just 12 km south of Florence. The greatest asset of the villa is without a doubt the naturalistic contour of grapevines of the Chianti Classico region. Scents of freshly pressed grapes, cut grass and crickets singing loud in the hot months will make you experience a truly unique time, and show you how Italians do life. The villa is said to have been originally built for the wealthy Machiavelli family with the help of the great Renaissance painter Michelangelo gifting his artistry for decorative frescoes.

Wrapped tight by a large estate of fruitful vineyards and fields of yellow gold, the villa is a known producer of top-quality wine and olive oil, giving this ever-so-charming estate the real look of a destination wedding in Stile Italiano.

Set right in the Chianti region, not far from Siena and San Gimignano, the villa shows an enviable ratio of location, views, amenities, atmosphere and service quality.

There are two luxury villas forming the property, located within a minute walk from one another, that can be rented individually or as a whole, depending on the number of guests and the wedding vision of the couple.

Carefully renovated, the villa's large rooms are equipped with the highest quality of Tuscan antique furniture and outfitted with all modern comforts and amenities. 


Event options for your day

The estate offers diverse indoor and outdoor areas dedicated to ceremonies and receptions. You can choose amongst the romantic loggias, the gardens, the elegant restaurant and the iconic wine cellar, each with its own style and decor. 

The hotel rents out the buildings for multi-day events including rehearsal dinners, brunches, cooking classes or wine tours. The onsite restaurant will spoil you and your guests with first-rate dishes and equally distinguished wines.
Symbolic ceremonies and religious blessings can take place directly on the grounds, and civil and catholic weddings can be arranged in Florence.

Where landscape becomes poetry

Notorious for its quintessential colours like a glaring springtime green and a summer dry yellow with hues of earthy khaki colouring the houses on top of the hills, little is left to the imagination when it comes to the beauty of the Tuscan landscape. No wonder artists and people from all over the world travel here searching for inspiration.

The architectural structure of this area speaks of a country focused around agricultural work, with its thousand farmhouses, villas and barns securing the regional livelihood around farming and tourism. Certainly a magical landscape, where the afternoon sun covers every tiny square of land, from the stone castles far away down to the line of olive trees standing right in front of you with a golden aura.

Recreational activities

Time off well spent

Think of this property as a white canvas with endless possibilities to enjoy Tuscany to its core from countryside relaxation, to guided tours, art galleries, museums and shopping sprees in the magnificent Renaissance city. 

It is virtually impossible to run out of magnificent things to do, in fact you might find yourself in a few years down the line suggesting to your loved one yet another Tuscany trip to tick off a few more things of your couples bucket list. Almost every thing that you will choose to do, the romance thermometer will always point to very high temperatures. Tuscany will leave no doubt a very corny mark in your life album, from Vespa rides through to horseback tours around the vineyards. 

Keep busy with:

  • Private walking tours in the countryside
  • Visiting historic sites
  • Wine day 
  • Driving around in a Fiat 500 
  • Art museums in Florence
  • Try a Bistecca alla Fiorentina
